Complete the Tiger "Hammer" Challenge - A New Hero Tank Can Be Yours!

The Wehrmacht contributed greatly into almost making Germany a superpower, largely due to a dedicated team of engineers who helped build state-of-the-art weaponry. One of those weapons, the Pz.Kpfw. VI Tiger , helped spearhead German armies from the Baltic to North Africa.

Presenting the Tiger "Hammer," a brand-new Hero tank and part of our latest challenge! And it's not just the tank, but a PvE scenario and new medals and emblems. You can literally battle for the "Hammer" or buy it via the bundles below, but heads up -- it's only through one of the bundles below that you can also get your hands on the German Kanonenjagdpanzer !

Wargaming celebrates 100 Years of Tanks -- Our array of events continues with the latest challenge for the Tiger "Hammer!"

Hammer challenge


The Tiger "Hammer" is the latest Hero tank and comes in exclusive all-terrain camo paying homage to the German national soccer team. What's impressive about the "Hammer" is that it's essentially an Elite-status Tiger, equipped with the feared "long 88" L/71 gun!

To earn the "Hammer" (and exclusive Victor's medal), you'll need to earn a specific amount of points which can be tracked in your "Ops" tab. You'll need to progress through five time-locked tasks where you'll need to earn a set amount of points:

  • You'll earn one (1) point if you place in the top 5 XP earners on your team
  • You'll earn one (1) point if you win the battle
  • You'll earn two (2) points for completing BOTH criteria (win and place in the top 5 XP earners)
  • You'll LOSE one (1) point if you lose a battle AND don't place in the top 5 XP earners
  • Your points won't change if you lose a battle AND place in the top 5 XP earners

Win a battle or place in the top 5 XP earners to earn a point; do both and earn two points. Check the dedicated forum thread for additional details. If you previously purchased the "Hammer" and complete the Hammer Challenge, the Hammer Challenge: Anvil will grant 1,000 upon completion.
