We’re happy to announce that the Enigma’s Legacy Battle Path campaign has just begun.
The world is in turmoil – on June 16, 2044, a supervolcano exploded, filling the planet’s atmosphere in ash and dust and causing something not unlike a nuclear winter. As the terrified population scrambles to find shelter, Enigma’s endgame is finally revealed. Predicting this outcome all along, Enigma built a series of vaults for its members and allies, including the factions you’ve fought so hard – PLM, NPAA and the Lions of Nequiel. But Enigma is no more and the world has changed. You must aid your former enemies in exchange for supplies and the location of one final unoccupied vault that you must reach before the destruction becomes too widespread.
This three-month-long campaign offers you the opportunity to get your hands on four very special reward vehicles, including the Type 10 Hitomaru Tier 10 Premium MBT, but other valuable prizes are also available, including gorgeous Enigma Unit skins, decals and much more. You can find more information about the campaign in the Frequently Asked Questions section below and in our dedicated article.
In order to join the Battle Path campaign, please enter the game and click on the Enigma’s Legacy icon on the upper bar.
From there, you can simply purchase the Battle Path access:
- Standard pass (access only)
- Golden pass with access and 42.500 Battle Coins
Please note that there might be a delay of up to 10 minutes between the purchase and the access to the event.
How does it all work?
Simply put, you earn Battle Coins by completing missions and then spend them to raise your Battle Path level while earning Battle Path Premium vehicles, camouflages, player avatars, skins, decals and other goodies, including a reward tank with Premium status, the Tier 10 Type 10 MBT. You can also get other Premium vehicles as well.
What do I have to do?
The Battle Path campaign is divided into four paths (mission chains), each with its set of many missions. Additionally, two sets of tasks are also available:
- Battle Coin missions (deal damage, destroy enemy targets and earn XP for Battle Coins)
- Challenges (weekly tasks and an additional source of Battle Coin income)
Unlike Challenges and Battle Coin missions, the branch missions offer additional rewards, not just Battle Coins, including Loot Crates, boosters, Credits and the Enigma skins.
How many levels are there and why should I care?
There are 50 levels in total. For reaching Level 50, you will a reward tank with Premium status, the Tier 10 Type 10 MBT.
How can I start a mission chain (path)?
In order to start a mission chain, you need to achieve a certain Battle Path level. Mission chains will become available on Level 1, Level 10, Level 30 and, finally, Level 50 (providing you completed the other three previous chains already).
What are the Battle Coins?
The Battle Coins are a unique currency, required to advance through Battle Path levels. You can also spend Battle Coins on completing difficult missions without having to actually complete their requirements in the game. On the Battle Path screen, you can see your Battle Coin balance in the upper right corner.
How can I obtain Battle Coins?
There are several ways of obtaining them:
- By completing Repeatable Battle Coins missions or Challenges
- By completing missions from one of the three mission chains – almost each completed mission will award you with a certain amount of Battle Coins
- By purchasing them or winning them in an official Armored Warfare event
- By just playing
It’s worth noting that:
- Special Battle Coin boosters can be obtained for Repeatable Battle Coin missions and for Battle Path level progression, increasing your Battle Coin income for two hours by 900 percent (these can also be saved for future Battle Paths)
- Long queue waits are compensated by increased Battle Coin income
- You will get Battle Coins for playing even without Battle Path access
The amount of Battle Coins for playing is calculated as such:
You’ll receive a fixed amount of Battle Coins (2 for PvE and GLOPS, 3 for PvP) for each minute of effective combat. Effective combat time is a new mechanic that counts only the time when you are active in battle (during or between the actions that contribute towards your team’s effort). The exact length will be rounded up for the purposes of rewards (eg. 41 seconds will be treated as 1 minute, 1:01 minute as 2 minutes etc.) and will be available on the results screen.
Like before, winning will multiply your reward (by 1.25 for PvE and GLOPS and by 1.5 for PvP) but you’ll also receive extra Battle Coins for being amongst the best players on the battlefield (4 for Top 2 in PvE, 5 for Top 5 in PvP and 10 for Top 5 in GLOPS).
Some missions require me to do things I do not understand, like Kill or Eliminate. Can you explain?
There are several goal categories included in this Battle Path:
- Performance requirement
- Battle Path vehicles use
Kill (or Destroy, which is the same thing) simply means you have to be the player who deals the finishing blow to the target.
Assist means that you have to be the player who deals the most damage to the target (save for killing it). There is no threshold – if player A deals 40 percent of all the damage to the target, player B deals 30 percent of all the damage done to the target and then player C deals the remaining 30 percent and kills it, player A will get the “assist”. Kill or assist requirements often come together, so you can either achieve a kill, or an assist and both will count towards your mission progress.
Eliminate means that you have to destroy the target AND, at the same time, be the player dealing the most damage to it. What that means is that, in the case described above, no player would achieve elimination. However, if two players dealt 30 percent of damage each and then another player dealt 40 percent of damage and killed the target, that player would achieve elimination.
Performance is the percentage of hits that hit your target while dealing main hitpoint damage. In other words, a mission with 80 percent performance requirement requires 80 percent of all your shells to hit your target and deal hitpoint damage to it. What this means is that:
- Shells that hit and deal damage (even without penetration, like HE explosions) will count
- Shells that don’t hit but still deal damage (HE splash) don’t count
- Shells that hit but don’t deal damage (non-penetrations, ricochets) don’t count
- Shells that hit but only deal module damage (hitting enemy ERA, tracks or gun) don’t count
Last but not least, the Enigma Unit skin mission series (PLM, NPAA, Lions and Enigma) all require the use of one of the Battle Path’s vehicles: Type 74, Seongun-915, SBS Pindad, Type 10 Hitomaru and Hunter AFV.
What are Repeatable Battle Coin Missions?
There are three missions available:
- Deal a certain amount of damage (each point of damage against player vehicles will count as five for the purpose of this mission)
- Destroy a certain number of enemy vehicles (each player vehicle will count as five)
- Earn a certain amount of net Experience
The cooldown of these missions is 72 hours. However, there’s a twist to them. Upon each cooldown, each of these three missions will also contain a randomly chosen set of conditions. For example, the Battle Path may ask you to deal damage while driving a Marat Shishkin Tank Destroyer, or a Sol Schreiber vehicle of any class.
What are Challenges?
Challenges (there will be ten of them in total) will open on weekly basis as the event progresses. Each Challenge requires you to do something (for example, deal 15.000 damage in PvE/GLOPS or 3.000 damage in PvP) and consists of ten stages, each more difficult than the last. The abovementioned Challenge opening will be server-based, so joining the Battle Path two weeks into it will allow you to start with two Challenges already unlocked. This will help latecomers to catch up on progress faster than ever before.
How long will the campaign be available?
The Battle Path missions will be available for the duration of 3 months. The remaining time can be seen in the Battle Path window in the game.
What unique prizes can I look forward to for participating in the Battle Path?
The Battle Path level prizes include:
- Type 74 MBT
- Seongun-915 MBT
- Pindad SBS AFV
- Type 10 MBT
Battle Path chain mission rewards include the Enigma skins for the abovementioned reward vehicles.
Can I complete the chain missions within a chain in any order?
No. You need to complete them in the order specified by each chain, one after another. It is, however, possible to complete a mission by spending extra Battle Coins. You can see which mission is currently active by visiting the Mission tab of the Battle Path window. The completed missions are marked with a green ticker and the missions that are yet to be unlocked are marked with a lock icon.
How many Battle Coins does unlocking each level cost?
Advancing to another level costs 50 to 2000 Battle Coins for Levels 1-10 and 4000 Battle Coins for Levels 11-50.
Can I see the progress of my missions in the game?
Yes, in the Battle Path window.
Can I complete more missions at the same time, or the next one only starts after the previous one is finished?
The next one only starts after the previous one is finished. You need to pick up your mission reward manually in the Battle Path window in order to activate the next mission. However, if you earn more than one pass and unlock multiple chains at the same time, it is theoretically possible to have up to three missions active simultaneously and to complete them all in one battle (if their requirements do not prohibit you from doing so). It is also possible to complete a Battle Coin mission, a regular chain mission and a Challenge at the same time.
How do I know what vehicles to use and what modes to enter when completing a mission?
Each mission has its own set of requirements that are sometimes randomized. Mission requirements are stated in each mission’s description, above the mission’s text and main objective description.
When do I receive a prize that I win, for example by advancing by a level?
You will receive it automatically, within 30 minutes of you receiving it.
If I didn’t receive the reward I won fair and square, what do I do?
Please contact our support service.
I’ve seen a reference to the Engima’s Legacy crates. Can you tell me more about them?
The Engima’s Legacy Loot Crates are in exchange for surplus Battle Coins. They include blueprint pieces of the Hunter Tier 9 Premium AFV (along with a chance for that vehicle to drop directly) as well as pieces of Special Patriot Loot Crates. These Special Crates have to be first assembled and, upon doing so, they drop improved loot, including:
- Exclusive Premium vehicles (including those from previous Battle Paths, up to Tier 10)
- Exclusive commanders (including Battle Path ones)
- Battle Path boosters
What is a Workshop?
The Workshop Battle Path tab will allow you to modify your Battle Path vehicles with additional performance-enhancing or modifying modules that will be available for completing a certain number of Battle Path Missions (chain missions or Battle Coin missions) or Challenges (even though the act of opening a Special Crate also counts towards these objectives).
These modules will become available only when you obtain the vehicle itself, although the completed missions and challenges from this Battle Path will count retroactively. With some effort, all these upgrades will be obtainable during the Engima’s Legacy Battle Path but it is worth noting that if you don’t manage to do that, future Battle Path missions and challenges will count towards them as well.
Please note, however, that, unlike before, standard Contract Missions available to anyone DO NOT count towards any Battle Path progress.
Enjoy the event and see you on the battlefield!
