Respawns: Get a Second Chance to Become the Best!

Now every hunter has a second chance to jump back into the action and take revenge for an early elimination! If your vehicle is destroyed during the first five minutes of the battle, you can automatically respawn in a safe location. You will retain your vehicle’s tier, but you will lose all previously collected shells and Combat Abilities.

When playing as a Platoon, you will have two common respawns, and you’ll be able to respawn next to your Platoonmate within the first eight minutes of battle. To do so, your brother in arms must remain out of battle for 10 seconds, after which you will land next to them.

After spending your respawn(s), you can replenish them when collecting Airdrop loot.

Respawns will allow you to play more assertively and use bolder tactics—but only in the early stage of battle. Use this time to explore the battlefield and destroy all opponents nearby!

Marauders: Low-Hanging Fruit for Real Hunters

As you explore the map searching for loot, be prepared to face Marauders, AI-controlled opponents that are relatively easy to defeat. Consider them a source of additional Combat XP and loot. Marauders will be especially useful for upgrading your vehicle in the early stage of the battle.

There will be three different types of Marauders, and each of them will react differently to your appearance, as follows:

  1. Hares sneak away as soon as they spot you.
  2. Wolves try to cause damage from a distance.
  3. Bears guard loot and will fight you to the last breath.

Vision System

The vision system in Steel Hunter: Reborn now works exactly as it does in Random Battles. To spot enemies, they must be within your Radio Detection coverage area or direct line of sight.

Radio Detection. This system displays loot points and enemy vehicles on the minimap within its coverage area. Be aware that using Radio Detection will reveal your current position if you are within range of ​​another player’s Radio Detection.


It’s not always easy for new players to perform well in the battle royale format, especially if they find themselves in matches with experienced Hunters. To give everyone a fair shot at success, the Steel Hunter: Reborn matchmaker will aim to create solo battles with opponents of similar combat effectiveness.

Rebalanced Special Vehicles

This year, eight special vehicles with unique Combat Abilities will continue the hunt! All of them have been rebalanced and will be available from your first battle in the mode. Vehicle Abilities have also been updated to make their individual playstyles even more distinct. You can upgrade each of the eight vehicles from Tier I up to Tier VII over the course of the battle.

Good hunting, Commanders! Survive at all costs and grab all available rewards in the updated Steel Hunter mode!
