Share with Friends

Send the invite code TANKBOOTCAMP to a friend. Once they sign up, they'll collect lucrative rewards, including seven days of Premium Account, 250,000, a "Moon Viewing" 2D style, and the V Excelsior !

This works really well in combination with the Referral Program. Recruit a friend and pick up lucrative rewards, such as a free Premium vehicle, for both of you. This is ideal if you have already completed over 600 battles and want to give your mate a helping hand. Don't worry if your friend has already created their account—you can still recruit a new or old player if they've only played up to 200 battles or if they haven't played any battles over the last 60 days. Generate your unique invite code below and start reaping the benefits of the Referral Program as you fight through battles together!
