Ammo in Armored Warfare – HEAT vs AP vs HE vs ATGMs…a quick ammo guide

So you have recently started playing Armored Warfare and noticed there are a lot of choices in ammunition. The ammo you use can make a big difference in how much, if any, damage you do during a game. It is important to note there is no “premium” or “gold” ammo in Armored Warfare. Just ammo of varying effectiveness against different armor types, for the most part costing similar credits as equivalent ammo for the same vehicle....

As I’ve done with the Founder’s Packs and the gold economy in Armored Warfare, let’s take a look to see what kind of value these packs bring to the player. Plus the achievement titles/awards that go along with each. If you are interested in buying any head over to the Armored Warfare website. As I...

Clan logos, training room, mobile app, guide, sounds, etc. in answers from Armored Warfare developers

Perusing the Russian Armored Warfare: Project Armata site brings even more answers from developers. This week has been full of Armored Warfare developer news. While this comes from the Russian site it should mostly apply to Armored Warfare in the NA and EU markets too. Note: the translations are a bit rough having gone through online translators. I have a few readers who translate content for me, but sometimes there just isn’t time before I get a...

Armored Warfare: Project Armata launch 36

New premium packages for sale in Armored Warfare: Project Armata

Players in the NA and EU markets should still find this article interesting as it hints at things potentially to come. I want to be clear the content is mostly for the Russian version of Armored Warfare: Project Armata. The specials are Mail.Ru Groups and not My.com’s…but I’d expect things to be similar when Armored Warfare enters open beta. By the way, as many of you know I play on all servers when I get the time. I’m...

Revisiting Armored Warfare’s grind and high tier premiums

I’ve written about the grind in Armored Warfare before. Back then I was able to give you a guestimated glimpse into what became the retrofit system in Armored Warfare. With some of the forum topics continually coming back to how much of a grind there is in Armored Warfare I wanted to revisit the concept. Armored Warfare’s economy and grind To me, the word “grind” has a negative connotation. It means players are not enjoying...

Gold prices and value in the Armored Warfare economy

Previously I  covered the economy and monetization of Armored Warfare. From gold prices when Russia started selling premium time to the first time I looked at the value of premium vehicles in the founders packs. With the release of gold in Armored Warfare it is time to revisit what things cost and have a look at the value of Armored Warfare’s economy. How much does gold cost in Armored Warfare? Well, how much are you buying? As with most...

Artillery support shells in Armored Warfare (screenshots and video)

Artillery in Armored Warfare is a support class vehicle, and we have some screenshots and a gameplay video of the support shells in action. When we took a look at the artillery in Armored Warfare versus World of Tanks there were many differences with Armored Warfare SPGs (Self-propelled guns) having these characteristics: Faster firing More accurate Lower alpha damage Other vehicles receive warnings of incoming shells Artillery can see other artillery’s vicinity after they fire (counter-artillery opportunities)...

Loot in Armored Warfare 29

Loot in Armored Warfare…the start of a tank to RPG hybrid?

Armored Warfare has loot coming, and it is likely not limited to just to PvE. I was surprised there wasn’t more commentary of loot in the Armored Warfare forums. We did have a few comments about it here on Armored Talk when we posted the improved after battle screens from the Armored Warfare Russian PTS (public test server). The game build on the Russian PTS should be similar to what the NA and EU servers...

Armored Warfare Retrofit system 51

Armored Warfare Retrofit system

As we mentioned yesterday with a bunch of new information on upcoming Armored Warfare builds, the public test server (PTS) in Russia was going to have the new Retrofit System. As SilentStalker (Content Manager for Armored Warfare) pointed, the build NA and EU gets won’t be exactly the same. Obsidian is still rolling in patches and updates to what the NA and EU servers will be getting. However, the majority of the content should be similar....
