Operation Deadpoint is War Commander's 17th Special Event. As with previous events, Commanders are challenged to complete increasingly difficult stages of battle against a Rogue Faction. For each successful stage completed the Player is awarded Event Experience Points which may be used to purchase Special Event Units that are otherwise not obtainable.
Once in, defend yourself from the Eastern Horde's assault by hitting the "Start" button. After some successful defense campaigns, launch a counter assault by heading to the World Map and seeking out a nearby base. There will be an enemy base to target two hexes away from your base. Occasionally, you will need to take out Mutoto's powerful Fortress. These Fortresses are unlike anything you have ever seen before, and are exceptionally well-protected, accessible only from one point of attack. Bonus XP can be gained by destroying Widowmaker construction bays before they are completed. Your hard work on these bases will not go unnoticed - Fortress bases pay out a very large amount of XP! Plot your strategy and execute quickly, as Fortress Bases reset after an hour! Defeat incoming waves and launch your own assault to earn XP and win powerful new prizes!

|“||The Eastern Horde is stockpiling Thorium in mountain fortresses. Each of these fortresses is exceptionally well-protected, accessible only from one point of attack. Your mission is simple: infiltrate Mutoto’s mountain retreat and end their Thorium monopoly. - http://bit.ly/1acx6BK||”|
