Stun is a Status Effect applied by certain specialized pieces of equipment. When a tank is stunned, four things always happen:

  • Hull can no longer drive or turn
  • Turret can no longer turn, shoot, charge up, or reload
  • The stunned tank will drop the flag or ball
  • Supplies and overdrive cannot be activated
    • Stunned tanks will see red indicators blocking activation: No RepairKit.pngNo DoubleArmor.pngNo DoubleDamage.pngNo SpeedBoost.pngNo Mine.png

In addition, depending on the type of stun, the additional effects may occur:

  • If the stun comes from Hunter's overdrive, already-activated overdrive objects (Titan's dome generator, Wasp's bomb, or Ares's energy ball) will be destroyed.

Some important things to note:

  • Already-active supplies stay in effect, and drop boxes (including Gold Boxes can still be taken if the tank happens to be stunned where they fall.
  • Tanks retain their momentum, so fast-moving tanks (especially hovering ones) may still slide after a stun
  • Tanks near control points (CP, SGE) will continue to capture them.
  • Overdrives about to fire are interrupted (Hunter, Crusader, and Ares have a warm-up period; getting stunned during this warmup prevents the activation)
  • Stunned tanks will have this symbol above them: Icon Stun.png If you are stunned, or were the one that did the stunning, you will also see the text Stunned briefly appear above the affected tanks.


  • Juggernaut.pngThe Juggernaut is immune to all negative status effects.
  • Icon overdrive at field.pngMammoth's Overdrive removes all negative status effects and makes the tank immune to them.
  • Icon Immunity.png Immediately after spawning, all tanks are immune to negative status effects.

Stuns also do not affect tanks wearing the Stun Immunity hull augment, which can be purchased for 4990MiniTankoin.png (or less, during a sale), or obtained from a Container or Ultra Container, with Epic rarity level.
