Frontline

Frontline is ready for preliminary testing. The progression system, values, and all rewards that are relevant for the Common Test are not final and may not correspond to those in the final version of the mode.

The third launch of the Frontline mode in 2022 is scheduled for autumn, and its basics will stay the same. As before, you’ll engage in 30-vs-30 single-tiered battles where the attackers must capture the zones of the defenders and then destroy their high-caliber guns. As it used to be during the second launch, the mode progression will consist of 20 Stages.

FRONTLINE LEVEL FRONTLINE XP FRONTLINE LEVEL FRONTLINE XP
1 0 11 1,300
2 400 12 1,400
3 500 13 1,500
4 600 14 1,600
5 700 15 1,700
6 800 16 1,800
7 900 17 1,900
8 1,000 18 2,000
9 1,100 19 2,100
10 1,200 20 2,200

Reaching every successive Stage will bring you more rewards so you will be able to earn even more goodies fighting in the mode. You will be also able to choose the type of directives you receive as rewards. Once you complete the final level of the mode progression, you willl obtain a large amount of bonds, a Training Manual, and other valuables.

Changes to Combat Reserves

During the third launch of Frontline, Combat Reserves won’t be instantly usable after you respawn. They will become available once 30% of Battle Reserve standard deployment time has passed.
