The holidays are a time for giving. Tanksmas is no exception.

So this year, give your battlefield opponents a taste of gingerbread-flavored devastation with some of the biggest, baddest holiday-themed additions to your tanks we could think of.

Take a look below at the new Santa and Krampus 3D Hero Commanders and their associated tank Skins. Then, read on for info on a Challenge that will reward you with the T28 Concept and its Santa’s Slay Skin!


New Commanders and Skins

It’s naughty versus nice—which will win?

On one hand, you have a spirit who’s come to reward all the good little tankers… and you’d better believe that this guy’s made his list and checked it twice:

Santa 3D Hero Commander
(starts with three open Skill slots and earns Commander XP at a 30% bonus rate)

On the other hand… well, this spirit certainly won’t let any battlefield misdeed go unpunished:

Krampus 3D Hero Commander
(starts with three open Skill slots and earns Commander XP at a 30% bonus rate)

Earn Challenge: Santa Needs New Tracks

Listen, Santa’s got a mission to deliver presents and holiday cheer all around the world, and that sleigh he’s been riding in for centuries just isn’t going to cut it.

So give the man in red a hand. Roll out in the T28 Concept and its new Santa’s Slay Skin by earning them both along with additional rewards in the Santa Needs New Tracks Challenge!

This is a short progressive Earn Challenge with four stages. To complete each stage, you’ll need to get points by earning XP in multiplayer battles. The points you receive will vary depending on your rank as an XP earner in each battle:

Place as the top XP earner on your team 3 Points
Place as the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th XP earner on your team 2 Points
Place as the 5th, 6th, or 7th XP earner on your team 1 Point

Points carry over from one stage to the next. For example: If you already have 14 points and then rank as the top XP earner in your next battle, you’ll complete Stage I (which needs 15 points) and start Stage II with two extra points.

Note: If you already own the T28 Concept, upon completing this Challenge, you’ll receive its value in Silver (2,800,000 Silver) instead.

Santa Claus is coming to town, Commander. It’s up to you to make sure he arrives fully loaded! Details below.
