During battles, you may see players typing messages such as “Drugs!” or “Drugger!”. This means that some players in the battle are using lots of supplies, items from the Garage that allow you to temporarily enhance a particular feature of your tank. There are many ways to obtain supplies, which are listed further below.

Supplies can be activated with the 1 to 5 keys (and 6 for Gold Boxes), or with different ones if you change the controls in Settings.

After using a certain supply, the item enters a "cooldown," making it unavailable for a time (except in Parkour battles). Therefore, it is impossible to continuously use one particular type of supply without using a Drone or picking up Drop Boxes.

Combine supplies from the Garage with the ones you get on the battlefield to make your tank even more deadly.

For information on Crystal Boxes, Nuclear Energy, and other items that can't be obtained in the garage like supplies but do drop in battles, see Drop Boxes.


Smart Cooldowns

Smart Cooldowns are a system of cooldowns for supplies. The moment you activate one, several others are also put into cooldown for a brief time. A player can still have several supplies activated at the same time, but this will require a smart approach, a good understanding of each supply’s cooldown timer, as well as the combined use of garage supplies and drop boxes.

For instance, when Boosted Damage is activated, it forces a 10-second cooldown on Boosted Armor. Since supplies now remain active for 30 seconds, you can still have both Boosted Damage and Boosted Armor active at the same time. To do this, you would have to either wait for the cooldown on Boosted Armor to end or pick a Boosted Armor dropbox from the arena.

Smart Cooldowns can be eliminated by equipping certain Drones, such as Hyperion or Crisis.

Supplies

These items can be picked up in battle or stored in your garage inventory and used manually (except batteries, which are used automatically and only come from the garage).

Supply item, after activation repairs the tank. Any damage received during the repairing process will stop the effect.

An absolute necessity on the battlefield. A kit of cleverly combined parts, carefully packed into a single plastic box, allowing you to quickly cover up holes in the armor and replace burned-out wires. The box is needed only to hold this wild array of tools, and, according to military experts can also be used as a bio-toilet.

Supply item, after activation temporarily lowers all incoming damage by 33%.

A set of improved ceramic and kevlar armor plates, mounted in standard 600x800 mm slots. With a weight of 10 kg each, such an armor plate can increase the protection of standard armor, allowing 33% (50% with the help of a Drone) reduction in incoming kinetic and thermal energies of an explosion. Also included in the set are titanium bladed scissors, three rolls of double-sided duct tape, and a snow-white lace napkin, obviously irreplaceable in battle.

Unique military research, and also a small metal clutch mounted on the middle part of the barrel with the help of two bolts and one screw. Allows 50% more power to be packed into the shot, and up to 100% more power with the help of a Drone. Unfortunately, an autonomous source of energy powering electromagnetic modulator inside the barrel will be discharged quickly, and end the effect.

The supply item, after activation temporarily increases the speed of the tank and the rotation speed of its turret.

A real N2O gas tank is a must-have for every tank. First of all, it’s the perfect fuel for a quick increase in speed for your battle machine, and, second, inhaling this substance will make your voice sound really funny. If you encounter strangely snickering tankers on the battlefield, know that they just puffed a large amount of N2O.

Supply item, after activation drops a mine under the tank, which exists until the tank gets destroyed or an enemy drives over the mine.

Mine is your friend. Mine is your comrade. Mine is your brother if you’ve seen more than one battle. To sneak, undetected, into enemy camp and mine it, to cover retreating teammates, to block all passages to your base -- all of this is possible only thanks to the deadly mines.

Supply item, after activation of one Gold Box with crystals inside, will drop at a random spot on the map.

Maybe you’ve heard somewhere an ancient greeting uttered by an old clan of gold diggers - “Gold pls”. At one time, that request was for mods and admins, but also for regular tankers. Gold diggers would haunt the battles in search of Golds yet to drop, and the thirst for shiny boxes would dominate their minds, rendering them incapable of coherent speech and play.


Battery Icon battery supply.png

Automatically used to operate an equipped Drone. IconsNormal 04.png 300 Crystal.png Supply battery transparent.png Supply battery preview.png

Supply item, used for operating the equipped drone. Does not need to be activated.

One battery powers the drone with energy for exactly one minute. Brutus does not require batteries.

Branded AAA battery for use in field drones. It was debated if more energy-efficient batteries could be used in drones, but the head of the project insisted on these elements. We speculate, that these batteries remind the head engineer of a child’s dream long lost, a remote-control toy car, which he might have lost, but actually never had.


Getting Supplies

  • The following are the many ways through which you can obtain supplies:
    • Supplies are sold separately in the Garage. However, the Gold Box supply can only be bought in the Shop for Tankoins.
    • Supplies can be purchased as part of special offers in the Shop.
    • Supplies can be obtained via Daily Missions or Special Missions.
    • Supplies can be obtained in daily gifts available only to Premium Account holders.
    • Supplies can be won as part of a contest (e.g. Parkour Survival, THE GAME).
    • Supplies can be obtained via a promotional code.
    • Supplies can be obtained by opening Weekly Containers, earned for completing weekly Missions
    • Supplies can be obtained by opening many other kinds of containers, but not every container will guarantee you a pack of supplies!


Features of Supplies

  • Supply boxes remain on the ground until someone picks them up. However, it wasn't always like this, as long ago, boxes would simply vanish into thin air if someone didn't pick them up.
  • After a box is taken (other than a gold box), the next one will appear exactly 110 seconds later.
  • If a Gold Box supply is used, it will drop exactly 10 seconds after the notification.
  • At the end of the match, all boxes are terminated from the map.
  • Supply drop zones can be disabled in the Settings.
