Special and Contest: The Great Hunt


It wouldn’t be a proper week-end without some great battles that you could enjoy through the whole weekend while resting after strenuous week. This time we go wild with our new Contest and Special! As you might have notice quite a few tanks are called after wild animals. Obviously, that is not a coincidence – wild beasts can be large and fearsome, just like the tanks named after them! The animal kingdom is as colourful as our battlefields.

This event is both a Special and a Contest!

The Great Hunt: Special

There are bonuses in store for you if you play a vehicle named after an animal.  Be warned though – the hunters will be out to catch you.. 

From 23rd November, 06:30 CET (05:30 GMT) until 27th November, 06:00 CET (05:00 GMT) you will be able to enjoy following game advantages:

30% additional income with following “prey” vehicles:


Self-Propelled Guns

  • Sturmpanzer I Bison (German, Tier II) – Named after a nearly extinct species. Though there are only few of them left, the bison is one of the biggest living animals. Endow your bison with life and roll out on battlefields!
  • Wespe (German, Tier III) - ‘Wespe’ means wasp, so take aim on your enemy and help your swarm to victory!
  • Grille (German, Tier IV) – ‘Grille’ means cricket, a large insect known for its evening song. Create a humming chorus and bring death to your enemies.
  • Hummel (German, Tier V) – A hummel is a bumblebee.  Be as busy as a bee with this popular SPG.
  • Gw Panther (German, Tier VI) – Dark and sleek, the panther hides in the shadows and strikes when least expected.


  • M22 Locust (American Light tank, Tier III) – Locusts are large insects known for swarming their prey and leaving nothing left but dust.  Can you live up to your tank’s namesake?
  • Luchs (German Light tank, Tier III) – A lynx is a large cat, known for leaping out of the bushes in a surprising ambush.  Hide away in the undergrowth and choose your moment.
  • Leopard (German Light tank, Tier IV) – The spots on a leopard are one of nature’s best forms of camouflage.  Hide your tank well and catch your enemies unawares.
  • PzKpfw V Panther (German Medium tank, Tier VII) – The panther leads a solitary life, waiting for that perfect moment to strike. Only a strong, patient and powerful beast like you can take down anything you like!
  • Pzkpfw VI Tiger (German Heavy tank, Tier VII) – Force and beauty are the traits of a tiger. Show your stripes and follow their example!
  • PzKpfw VI Tiger (P) (German Heavy tank, Tier VII) – Roar with the tiger! Miaow!

 Tank Destroyers

  • Marder II (German, Tier III) – The pine marten is a small animal, known for its speed and cunning.  You’ll never see it coming.
  • Jagdpanther (German, Tier VII) – The panther is such a great hunter that three vehicles were named after it!  Be the deadliest predator and hunt down your enemies.
  • M10 Wolverine (American, Tier V) – Contrary to their name, wolverines actually resemble tiny bears.  They are power and versatile predators and scavengers, afraid of nothing and capable of taking down far larger prey.

Roll out on the battlefields, outwit the hunters and earn extra credits for your efforts!
