How to start
Each user, when registering on Tanki Online, had to pick a nickname — there are millions of users currently registered and each one of them has his / her own personalized nickname!
They may refer to famous people, famous books, films, comics, etc..., they may refer to invented fantasies made by users or even exist only thanks to random pressing keys on a keyboard — what is important to note is that each nickname is part of an user's career in Tanki Online and all his / her friends will address him / her with it!
It’s really easy to register an account in the game. First of all you need to choose a nickname and a password. Later you will be able to link your Tanki Online account to your e-mail address. This will protect you and your tank from becoming a victim of violators and will let you easily change or recover your password.
After completing the registration and entering the game, you will see the main game screen called the "Lobby". Here you can choose and enter the battle you want or create your own as well as communicate with other players using the Chat (only after reaching the rank of Master Sergeant).
In order to fight with opponents on equal terms you will need to equip your tank with state-of-the-art equipment. This can easily be done using the in-game shop. Any acquired items are carefully stored in your Garage. It will be kept perfectly safe by a team of experienced mechanics.
You can tweak the sound, adjust the image, change the password, specify your e-mail address and do many other things in the settings menu.
To open it you need to click on the corresponding button in the top right corner of the screen.
As the famous "GVA" once said, "If you want to survive, learn how to rotate your turret."

Looking for something a bit different from the standard keyboard controls? Switch to mouse controls and command your tank in a whole new way. Learn all about mouse controls here.
Want to create a battle with your own rules? Then this is the right place.
Specify preferred characteristics (game mode, number of players, etc.) publish a link to your battle in the chat and fight on your favourite map.
Can't find a good battle? Do not have time to make one by yourself? Then join a random battle!
Based on your rank, battle type and duration, the server will pick the best battle for your needings.
There are currently 42 servers working around the clock. Usually, there is a restart of all servers at 02:00 UTC+0, but with time these restarts will be cancelled, so don’t be surprised if some of the servers are eventually working non-stop.
