How Campaigns Work

Campaigns are divided into sequential Missions, made up of various Tasks.

  • Each Mission requires a certain number of Pins. Complete Tasks in the current Mission to earn Pins  and other rewards
  • Only Tasks you accept will be active in battle. You can have up to two Tasks at a time, three if you have a Premium time active.
  • Once you earn enough Pins  for that Mission, complete that Mission’s Final Task
  • Once the Final Task is accomplished, you can move on to the next Mission
  • Rewards won’t be given automatically. You’ll have to click “Collect Rewards” under the completed Mission or Task to get your prize!

Let’s Put a Pin in That
Tasks can be repeated multiple times for Pin  rewards, but other rewards aren’t repeatable. Only Pins  earned within a Mission’s Tasks can be applied to the Mission’s Pin  requirement.

Mission Details

“Hunt for Bismarck” Campaign Tasks must be completed in Random Battles  with tier V+ ships. Additional restrictions may apply to individual Tasks.

(Captains who already own Bismarck will be rewarded her value in Credits and a Port Slot)


Throughout the Campaign, you’ll encounter a special type of container. Inside you’ll find new Campaign-exclusive signal flags, special camo, and Collectibles: badges and emblems with historical connections to the mission to sink the Bismarck!

Collector Containers come in two sizes:

  • Standard – Includes two Collectibles and one Campaign signal flag or special camo, with a possible “lucky drop” of five signal flags or camo. Get these containers for completing Mission Tasks.
  • Big – Rewarded for Tasks designated for HMS Hood. Includes one Collectible, seven random Campaign signals, and seven special camo applications.

Two new permanent camouflages for Bismarck, including a custom “battle-scarred” camo, await once you complete your Collection. Plus, any duplicate Collectibles you earn after completion earns you 10,000 !
