New this week in Thunder Run:
Elite AH-1Z Changes
Our Weapon Toggle System is coming. And the Elite AH-1Z has received this update in advance.
Pressing the ‘E’ key will now switch the Elite AH-1Z’s weapon from its default 20mm Cannon to the Sidewinder Missiles, which it will then fire automatically. No more need to aim, and no more confusion on how your air units mysteriously explode in Battle Replays when facing these deadly helos.
More units will adapt our new Weapon Toggle System soon, and therefore will have secondary weapons you can choose to switch mid-battle; allowing for massive customization potential!
Elite Kamov Ka-50 Skin
And that’s not all, Commanders! The Elite Ka-50 gets its new colors this week!
To get them, simply head on over to the Store! You can either go to Store>Cosmetics to purchase them with gold; or go to “Event Prizes” to purchase them with ONP/Hardware.
Friendly reminder that only “basic” skins can be purchased with ONP/Hardware. Premium skins, such as black, hot pink, and baby blue (and more to come in the future) can only be bought with gold. And of course, red and green skins are free!
Once bought from the Store, just activate the skins from your Warehouse and head on over to your Motor Pool and choose your new coat of paint! Click “Apply Paint“, and you’re done!
Please make sure to preview the skin before buying them, Commander!
Alas, the Elite Ka-50 will be the last unit to receive new skins for a while as our paint suppliers have waved the proverbial white flag. We have more exciting stuff in store in the coming months, though, Commander. So stay tuned!
Stricter Prison Sentences
In the interest of fairness, we have updated our anti-VPN systems and repeat offenders that have been moved to Prison map will no longer be able to move out of it. Of course, our anti-VPN detection is not perfect, but we hope this encourages more players to attempt to get whitelisted and discourage repeat offenders from continuing to use VPN.
Have new feedback to share? Let us know over on our Thunder Run Discord Server.

Good hunting, Commanders!
