Alterations are modifiers that allow a player to alter gameplay features of turrets while keeping them within the overall game's balance. For example, an alteration can weaken one characteristic in favor of strengthening another one.

Contents

Important Information

  • A total of fifty-one alterations are available for purchase at the moment.
  • Alterations can be purchased for crystals in the Garage.
  • Alterations for standard items can be equipped with XT skins.
  • Alterations have a separate setting under Pro Pass battle creation system, instead of being bunched under Micro-upgrades. Now they can be turned on or off independently.
  • Developing alterations for hulls is not planned (excluding options like equipping XT skins).
  • You can see alterations of other players equipped in battle by pressing R or V.
  • XT skins can now be found under Alterations [Only for turrets and hulls that are having XT skins], where a player can equip or unequip them according to their wish. However, they do not affect any features of a hull or turret apart from visual appearance.


General Information

  • Alterations unlock according to your rank.
  • Already bought/unlocked alterations won't disappear at any time.
  • You can equip an alteration or un-equip an alteration and get back to standard settings at any time.
  • Changing an alteration during a battle will cause self-destructing and a five-minute pause for changing other alterations (just like changing hulls, turrets and other items).
  • Only 1 alteration can be equipped at any given time.


Obtaining Alterations

Alterations can be obtained in the Garage for crystals as soon as the required rank is reached.

  1. Go to the Garage.
  2. Click on the turret you want to obtain the alteration of.
  3. The menu of the turret will be displayed. Click on the center green box to the right of the screen.
  4. All alterations available to be purchased/equipped will show up.


Alterations

The following tables contain all the current alterations. Some of these alterations modify specific turret's parameters to alter the turret's performances during a battle, leading to an increase or a decrease on a specific parameter's value for a turret, thus modifying that turret's performances, but always remaining in between the overall game balance's boundaries.

In the following tables you will find specific color-codes, as follow:

  • GREEN TEXT — green text is associated to an increase of a specific parameter's value
  • RED TEXT — red text is associated to a decrease of a specific parameter's value

In addition to the color-codes, you will also find specific effects' markers, as follow:

  • Plus.png — this marker is associated to a positive effect on a turret's performances produced by an alteration
  • Minus.png — this marker is associated to a negative effect on a turret's performances produced by an alteration
