What we are testing:

  • New map “Boombox”, which has an incorrect preview.

  • Optimization
  • Changed the physics of the hulls (experiment)

Activate the promo code TankiX_test on the testing server, which will grant you every item in the game.


  • There is a known bug where the game often crashes at the end of a battle.
  • The test server has an old account database, so there will be no changes in your garage in the last few months. You can play on your account or create a new one.
