Halloween Special: Leviathan’s Invasion

Take up arms! Leviathan and its army are marching toward the Gate. Don't let them break through and take over the world. Jump in on the action starting today through to November 9. Send Leviathan back where it came from, and earn rewards along the way!

World of Tanks is under attack! Leviathan, ruler of the armored afterlife, is about to storm the Gate between this world and the land of fallen tanks, and only you can stop its army! The ghostly onslaught begins October 27 as hordes of Leviathan’s minions march toward the Gate. Answer the call to protect the mortal world and stop Leviathan from unleashing the Apocalypse!

With just a day left before mayhem begins, let’s not waste any time and brief you on the upcoming battle.

Narrative

Led by an insatiable hunger for power, Leviathan and its evil minions are launching an unending attack on the Great Gate between worlds. Many guardians have fallen, but their brave squads keep protecting the final barrier on Dark Crucible. As their ranks shrink, Leviathan’s army only grows stronger, pushing the guardians to retreat.

Gate

Leviathan covets control over the Gate between World of Tanks and the Armored Afterlife. Supported by an army of evil minions, it will attack the Gate between worlds when it's most vulnerable—at Halloween. Defend the Gate and repel the onslaught of dark forces!

 
 
Leviathan

Hungry for more souls to devour, the ruler of the Armored Afterlife, Leviathan, is gathering an army of minions bent on overtaking the mortal realm. This monstrous tank is pounding at the gates to the realm of the living, eager to plunge World of Tanks into everlasting darkness...unless it can be stopped.

 
Minion Spawn Spot

The chances of crossing paths with minions are extra high here. Sluggish and far less efficient than Franken and Stein, they don’t pose a massive threat. Instead of dismantling the whole ghostly squad in the first few minutes, prolong the “pleasure.” Their Health Packs can help you survive the battle, if you use them wisely.

Your mission is stopping Leviathan’s attack and expelling its troops from the Gate. With every new battle, Leviathan devises a smarter plan. You never know where its army will spawn as they take a new route toward the Gate with every attack.

Overview

  • Timing: Oct. 27, 07:00 CESTNov. 9, 06:00 CET
  • Modes: “Onslaught” (PvE) and “Mayhem”(PvP)
  • Vehicles: Two exclusive multi-turreted tanks: Franken and Stein
  • Map: Dark Crucible
  • Objectives:
    • PvP: Capture the enemy base or destroy all enemies
    • PvE: Hold back the onslaught by destroying the Leviathan

Choose Your Vehicle

Two long lost warriors, Franken and Stein, are summoned from the afterlife by the imminent threat of the Apocalypse. These two don’t need extra equipment to carry the battle. Sporting several turrets each (because drastic times call for drastic measures), they can punch just as hard as their ghostly enemies if you play to their strengths. They come with ghostly Crews that fear nothing and have nothing left to loose, which gives them a chance to defeat Leviathan.

Franken is your go-to if you prefer to snap shots from a distance. Its high damage can be used with its speed to fire while ducking in and out of cover. Find a safe spot and mow down enemies left and right! And should worst come to worst, you have an outstanding gun to blast your way out of a few sticky situations.

If you can’t wait to get up close and personal with Leviathan, consider taking a spin with Stein. Best described as a damage sponge, this wielder of two turrets is mobile and has a better power to weight ratio than Franken, plus lots of hit points to get you through fierce close encounters.

FRANKEN

Franken shines at long ranges. Fitted with two accurate and devastating guns, it doesn’t toy with enemies—it picks targets from afar and takes them out before they even see it coming. If you’d like to take it slow and learn all the ins and outs of its multi-turret playstyle before jumping into the heat of the battle, Franken might be just the vehicle for you. Both its guns are mounted in its frontal projection, making it easy to adjust to new mechanics.

STEIN

Enjoy fighting at close range? Then go for Stein. The combo of thick armor, fast-firing guns, and impressive mobility gives it a very strong edge in close-quarter duels, allowing you to drill a few shots into an enemy before they reload and you can retreat to safety unscathed. Stein’s equipped with a rear-facing gun. This means you have to turn the tank so that both its guns can fire at the enemy, which might be tricky at first. However, once you get used to it, you’ll have no problem rolling around and causing havoc.


You’ll have both these tanks in your Garage for this event. Pick which one to play, then choose to face Leviathan's forces in a PvE mission, or play test new vehicles in a 15v15 PvP battle.

With a team of multi-turreted tanks, friendly fire can become a game-changer, so it's disabled in the PvE mode to prevent ruining the fun. Enjoy Franken and Stein’s full firepower with no fear of accidentally destroying a few teammates!

 

Important: Ghostly Crews are tied to their vehicles: you can’t send them to the Barracks or retrain them for other tanks. To keep you focused on the main conflict, we also disabled Crew training for Free XP for event tanks. Training them is an empty gesture anyway, as they return to the underworld on November 9 (along with Franken and Stein).

Study the Archenemy…

Now that you’re briefed on the good, let’s look at the bad: Leviathan. No longer content with being a mere steward of the underworld, Leviathan is hungry for more power. To gain ultimate control, it built up an army and led it the Great Gate—the portal to the mortal world. Claiming all for itself, it will unleash the Apocalypse upon the souls of the living... unless it can be stopped.

Getting some intel on the enemy ahead of the battle should help, and we’ve got some for you, right in the Garage. Hover over the grim shadow in the background to see what you’re up against.

Armed with an intimidating main gun, Leviathan has a few secondary weapons mounted across its massive hull. Will it shy away to finish the job with them? Doubtful. Unlike mere mortals, Leviathan is fearless and knows no mercy. It won’t think twice about ramming whoever dares cross paths with it. Its rage is so fierce, simply touching its hull will send you back to the Garage. Also, be wary of the landmines it plants around its enemies; rolling over one leaves you stunned and defenseless for seven seconds.

Primary weapon

Leviathan’s main gun has turned hundreds of vehicles into worthless piles of junk, and you might be next, unless you avoid it at all costs.

Secondary weapon

Although they cause less damage per shot than its main weapon, Leviathan’s secondary guns (located on its hull sides) can make a pin cushion out of you in no time thanks to their sheer number and excellent rate of fire.

Mortars

There’s hardly any cover to keep you safe from Leviathan. It sees your actions several steps ahead and spins its web like a spider, using mortars to set landmine traps in your path and seemingly secure spots. Tread carefully, as stepping on them won’t just rid you of HP; they also stun you for 7 seconds.

Weakspots

Leviathan’s anger is so fierce, it can’t be tamed, and that’s where its major weakness lies. Aim at the gleaming spots on the hull to pierce its thick skin.

Let’s face facts: it’s going to be a tough battle, but do you really have a choice? It’s either face the threat or watch the world burn. However, Leviathan isn’t without weak spots. Take a closer look and you’ll find there are flaws in its armor. Exploit them and this tough nut is sure to crack.

…And Its Ghostly Army

Supporting Leviathan are fallen warriors who crossed over to the dark side. 14 minions attack the Great Gate, and as crude as they are, they call also be useful to you. By destroying a minion, you gain a Health Pack that heals you and your allies.

How to Fight Minions

  • Be smart, act fast: They’re brainless puppets controlled by Leviathan’s mastermind. It takes them some time to adjust their tactics, which could give you an upper hand.
  • Know your vehicle’s weaknesses to get a good read on theirs: Minions all drive experimental tanks, similar to Franken and Stein, but they're a lot less efficient than yours. Use this to your advantage, but don’t think they’re easy targets.
  • Treat minions as a strategic resource: Instead of dismantling the whole ghostly squad in the first few minutes, prolong the “pleasure.” Their HP can last through a battle, if you harness it.

Missions & Rewards

Fight for a greater cause, or just for fun! If you want to profit in a new experience, amplify the challenge by embarking on special Battle Missions. Every mission you complete in PvP and PvE modes earns you a sarcophagus filled with valuable in-game items. If you’d like to rack up Credits, embark on the Reward for commitment mission, available throughout the event in both PvP and PvE.
