How To Do Campaign Missions In World of Tanks

Campaign Missions are a great way to earn rewards, here’s how to do them.

World of Tanks isn’t just about entering a match, killing tanks and trying to survive, it’s also about working through Missions and Campaigns. These Missions and Campaigns are the backbone of user experience in World of Tanks, as they offer a direct line to rewards. The time you put in will be rewarded with anything from Silver to Consumables, and even Bunks and Female crew members! 

How to Start Campaign Missions

To start a Campaign Mission, click on the Mission button or the Red Banner above your chosen tank.

A Tier 4 tank, at minimum, is required in order to start Missions in World of Tanks. However, any tank over Tier 4 can be used and is often a good idea. In saying this, it can be beneficial to begin the Campaign missions as soon as possible, as the road to the rewards is a long one. If you're wondering what Tier 4 tanks to use, we've got you covered with our 7 Best Tier 4 Tanks.

After a Tier 4 tank is selected, Navigate to the Missions tab in the Garage screen, or click the red banner below the “Battle!” button. The banner will take you directly to the appropriate Mission for the tank type. Click Start to track the mission.

Clicking the Mission button will take you to the main “Missions and Specials” box. Select Campaigns from the top followed by the first image of the tank, the StuG IV. Using the dropdown box or the scroll, find the tank type of your selected tank (LT for Light, MT for Medium, etc), select the first mission, and select Start on the right.

Be sure to read the Primary Conditions and the Secondary Conditions to learn what is required in accomplishing a given mission. For example, MT-1: First Steps has a Primary Condition of: cause damage to an enemy vehicle, win the battle, place in the top 10 of your team for experience. If this condition is met, a reward of 50,000 Silver is claimed. The Secondary Condition is to survive the battle. If the second condition is also met, a further 25,000 Silver is added to the reward.

Secondary Conditions can be retried if they are not originally met when the Primary Condition is completed. This is an excellent way to earn more Silver after the fact, so don’t fret if the mission is completed without meeting the Secondary Condition, just try it again!

How Campaign Missions Work

Operation StuG IV is the first set of Campaign missions available for completion.
Operation StuG IV is the first set of Campaign missions available for completion.

Each Campaign has 4 main Operations, each rewarding a tank. Within an Operation are 5 tank type-specific missions consisting of 15 individual missions. The final mission of each tank type, Mission 15, can only be started once the previous missions are complete.

Any tank type missions that are started appear at the bottom of the Campaign Missions box.

Only one Mission per-tank type can be selected at any given time and it’s best to work down the list of missions in each tank type. This means you can have a mission active for a Light tank, a mission active for a Medium tank, and so on, but cannot have two missions for a Medium tank active at once. 

As other Operations unlock, each of the 15 Missions increases in difficulty. For instance, the mission LT-1 in Operation StuG IV requires you to place among the top 10 players for experience, whereas the LT-1 mission in Operation Object 260 requires you to place as the top player on your team for experience.

Whenever you play a different tank, be sure to select a mission appropriate for that specific vehicle so progress can constantly be made.

How Campaign Mission Rewards Work

The last mission, number 15, can only be accessed after all previous missions are completed. Its rewards are the most appealing as it rewards: 1 female crew member, Commendations, and Bunks in the Barracks.

Mission rewards are given once a mission is successfully completed. A mission’s reward might be Silver or Consumables, with the final Mission of each tank type in a Campaign (Mission 15) rewarding Bunks in the Barracks, 1 Female crew member, and 50,000 Silver if the Secondary Condition is met. More importantly, the fifteenth mission also rewards up to 5 Commendations.

Thus, once all 15 missions for each tank type are completed, you will have 25 Commendations. These Commendations are used to unlock the tank for the given Operation. Thankfully, only 20 Commendations are required to unlock the tank, meaning if you dislike a specific tank type, you do not have to complete its missions.

That’s all you need to know about Campaign Missions in World of Tanks. Campaign Missions are one of the best additions to the game, as they give players a path to work along with very clear goals and rewards. There are also other Missions and Specials available in World of Tanks, but that’s another kettle of fish completely. You should now be well-versed in how Campaign missions work in World of Tanks.
