The Bourrasque Challenge

21 February 2020, 09:00 UTC +8 - 2 March 2020, 09:00 UTC +8


What's at Stake?

The French word “bourrasque” refers to a sudden, violent wind, and like its namesake, the Bat.-Châtillon Bourrasque is as swift and fierce as a hurricane. This medium tank boasts excellent mobility and accelerates instantly, rapidly changing flanks and easily getting behind unsuspecting enemies.

Its small size and high camo values help it sneak up on reckless adversaries. Equipped with a fast and furious two-round autoloader, the Bat.-Châtillon Bourrasque can deal 720 damage in a matter of seconds and make a quick escape, like a whirlwind. But after a short reload (22 seconds), it is ready to sting enemies again without mercy! This Stormbringer is great for fans of an aggressive and assertive playstyle.

3D-Style With a Hint of Past Triumphs

The brand-new Bat.-Châtillon Bourrasque comes with an elegant snow-white custom style. The scuff marks and traces of sand on it are testament to the numerous perils this fearless warrior has survived.

The style is not sold separately and is exclusive to the Bat.-Châtillon Bourrasque.

Two Ways to Reap the Rewards

The concept of the Spring Challenge will be familiar to those of you who took part in last year’s Renegade Challenge. The event lasts 10 days and involves 10 consecutive stages. To make the challenge more enjoyable, there are two ways to earn rewards. Both sets of tasks can be fulfilled simultaneously (given all conditions are met).

  • Missions for Commitment: The best option for players with a strong desire to get their hands on the Grand Prize. The diverse task conditions must be met using Tier VI–X vehicles. Remember: your result only counts if you are one of the top ten XP earners on your team at the end of a battle, no matter whether your team wins or loses.
  • Missions for Mastery: You can perform alternative, but more complex tasks. Fulfilling these objectives saves you time, but you must give your all to succeed. You can only complete these tasks using Tier X machines.

Fast Track

If you find you’re running out of time to complete the missions, you can still purchase the tank from the Premium Shop. You will receive a discount of 10% for each stage you’ve already completed. So, for example, completing 6 out of 10 stages will knock 60% off the price.

Purchasing the bundle gives you the full pack of rewards for all uncompleted missions and automatically checks all event tasks as completed. You won’t be able to access them once you purchase the bundle.
