Skins are elite items that have a unique appearance. They are an optional appearance for your equipment. You will be able to equip them on appropriate turrets and hulls at any Rank, no matter the modification (M0-M3). However, it is important to note that they only differ from their original counterparts by looks, and not by any extra, higher or better statistical values. For example, there is no difference between a Thunder M3 and a Thunder XT M3 except for the new additions onto the turret. The same goes for hulls, such as Hornet M3 and Hornet XT M3.


It is important to consider that you can get these versions of turrets and hull from a total of three ways:

  • Getting them as a reward by opening containers,
  • Buying them in the Shop, and
  • Winning them in promotions and contests held by the developers.


Here are some important facts regarding skins:

  • Once bought, a skin will remain in your Garage forever.
  • Alterations can be equipped with skins, also again, provided that you have alterations for the normal hull or turret.

History of XT Equipment

Smoky XT

Smoky XT

On February 12, 2011, there was another special event, themed at celebrating the 1 500 000th player to register in the game. For Valentine's Day, a special new turret called «Smoky XT» came out. It was more expensive and more powerful than the regular «Smoky» turret. For a week, every player ranked Warrant Officer 1 or higher could buy this turret, and use it until February 22. On the next day, the damage from «Smoky XT» was increased and two more days were added to the event. This caused a huge rift between players (as there weren't any events like this before). In the game and on the forums, «Smoky XT» became the most popular topic of discussion. On February 24, 2011, at 8:00 AM Moscow time, the turret was removed from players' Garages forever.


First Appearance of Railgun and Hornet XT

For the New Year 2014-2015 celebration events, it was possible to rent a unique set of items. These were the elite and exclusive, Hornet and Railgun XTs. All modifications from M0 to M3 - depending on the rank - were available, with improved characteristics and unique appearances. The cost of rent was initially very high (half a million crystals per set of M3), but declined every day until the end of the campaign - on the last day of the holidays prices was a hundred times lower than at the start of sales. On January 12, 2015, the rental period ended, and New Year's elite items were removed from the store and Garages.

Second Appearance of Railgun and Hornet XT

Around six months later, on July 14, 2015, Railgun and Hornet XTs were added back to the game (albeit only in the M3 version and with basic characteristics) to become rare unique prizes for Generalissimos (and later, only Legends) for completing a special Daily Mission. The first lucky person who collected both items was the German player I.ReSpAwN.


Appearance of Thunder, Firebird, Wasp and Viking XT

On September 10, 2015, Thunder, Firebird, Wasp and Viking XTs was added into the game - which could be obtained by completing a specific Daily Mission. These versions differed from their original counterparts only by looks, and not by any extra or higher statistics.


Alternate Way of Obtaining XT Equipment

On October 21, 2015, Premium Accounts were added into the game - and with the addition came the ability to buy XT items in the Garage for 500 000 crystals! So, instead of playing loads of hours in order to complete the special missions, you could now save up and buy the item you'd want for crystals.


Appearance of Vulcan and Mammoth XT

On December 25, 2015, Vulcan and Mammoth XTs was added into the game - which could be obtained by completing a specific Daily Mission or by purchasing them in the Garage. These versions differed from their original counterparts only by looks, and not by any extra or higher statistics.
