From Tanki Online Wiki

The "Special Events" are mainly a 12hr event in the game in which helpers and administrators join MM battles with special equipment and challenge players to kill them to receive a prize from the current event's special mission. However, be warned they are not easy to be killed and are hard to find. Players are able to find them from the rank of Staff Sergeant to Legend. They are recognized by the special nickname format, the unique paint, and sometimes with the juggernaut and terminator combo, spectrum modules, or the "special protection" augment.

In the past, there have been the following such events:

The war has ended, and what an EPIC event it was. The situation on the map was changing every day, but in the end, the Snowman’s faction triumphed! They ganged up on the other factions and became invincible! And now, they’re planning on invading the game tomorrow, on January 3rd at 11 UTC. We need to take some urgent action! Help us to catch all the snowmen. 5000 crystals per snowman caught

An evil virus has started infecting innocent tankers, making them exceptionally aggressive and SUPER tough. To save them, you must destroy their current virus-infested form, which you can recognize by their unique «Virus» paint. But be warned — the Virus will be VERY hard to kill. It may join the battle unexpectedly at any time and in any form (due to its mutating nature). Hand Sanitizer

For 12 whole hours, you can enjoy tasty barbecues, loads of soda, and of course, a huge birthday cake. It will be loud, fun, and crowded! Your task: play in matchmaking DM mode on the Kolhoz map and destroy the tanks that are wearing one of the special paints: «Barbecue», «Soda» and «Cake». It’s not an easy task to kill them all since everyone wants to take a bite out of them! 11 years!
