Players compete against each other. Every tank destroyed is considered a kill and grants the player experience points. The game features several battle modes including team modes, as well as a ranking system and many ways to combine equipment and customize tanks. Rather than choosing a tank from a list, players get to customize their own tank, combining turrets, hulls and protection paints to fit their tastes and playing style. Having chosen a tank, players join battles with other users, earning experience points and crystals, which is the in-game currency.
Supply boxes such as Double Damage, Double Armor, Speed Boost, and Repair Kits will periodically fall into the battlefield during the course of a battle. These "Supplies" will temporarily improve a tank’s performance in a number of ways, or repair any damage it might have suffered. By climbing the career ladder, players unlock access to new equipment as well as the option to upgrade any items in their possession.
