Golden Joystick 2013 Hunt Us Down

Tank Commanders!

Golden tanks have been spotted in random battlefields! Legend has it that there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Wonder why nobody ever found it? They lied. The gold does not wait for finders in pots. But are in the form of solid gold tanks!

It is going to take a few brave and intelligent tankers to take these legendary golden tanks down. Venture through random battlefields and you might just find your golden tank. But be prepared to take down one of the strongest enemies you've ever faced.

These tanks can be identified by their serial numbers provided below:

  •  WG_GoldenJoyStick_1 - WG_GoldenJoyStick_20

All you need to do is to land a killing blow on any of these tanks and you will be duly rewarded for your efforts.

Roll out!
