Introduction

Operation Halcyon is War Commander's 16th 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 Units that are otherwise not obtainable.

Basic Play Information

  • Each Player will have a Special Rogue Faction Base adjacent to their own base. This Rogue base may only be attacked by the player who's is attached to it.
  • To complete each Standard Stage the player must fully destroy the Rogue Base. This means all structures must be completely destroyed. The player may take as much time to do this as is needed with no restrictions on the amount of times they may start and stop an attack
  • Special Objective Waves. Some waves will have special objective which must be completed in order to advance to the next Wave. No extra XP is awarded for completing the Special Objective. The Special Objective is described the following way by Kixeye:

Occasionally, you will encounter bases that require an extraction to complete. After destroying the Red Lokust Laboratory, you will see an Engineer with an indicator above her head. First, send a vehicle to the retrieve the Red Lokust Engineer. Once the Red Lokust Engineer is on-board, an Extraction Point will randomly spawn around the rubble of the Red Lokust Laboratory. Engage the waves of enemy reinforcements and transport your hostage to the Extraction Point to successfully complete the stage. Ensure your vehicle is well protected, as the Engineer will try to return to the Red Lokust Laboratory if your vehicle is destroyed!

  • The Special Units may be purchased during the event. As the player acquires XP they may at any time during and up to 48 hours after the end of the event, chose to spend it on one of the new Units in the Event Shop. Also available in the Event Shop are all past Event Units with the exception of the Units form the Event that immediately preceded this one, Operation: Archangel.
  • The Event ends in one of two ways for a Player. First, if the Official Event Clock expires. The event runs for a limited time of 5 days after which time the Special Rogue Base will be removed from the map. Second, the Player reaches a Stage that he or she can not defeat thus forcing them to resign from the Event.

Additional Information

  • This is Sasha Kalashnikov third solo Special Event as antagonist. Her previous two solo Special Events being: Operation: Red Sky & Operation: Red Swarm. She also participated in Operation: Red Storm with her father Sergei Kalashnikov.
  • Starting at the completion of Wave 15 the player receives 20,000 Thorium.  From there every wave adds 1,000 additonal Thorium. Wave 16 = 21,000, Wave 17 = 22,000 Thorium and so on.
  • This is the first event to give out Thorium for the completion of waves. (Note: The Thorium is not always listed on the end resource card, bug)
  • Halcyon is the second event with a Progressive Event XP Award. The Player receives 200 XP for the first wave. Then for each wave completed after the Event XP Award is increased by 20 to 30 XP until the maximum 1300 eXP per wave is reached at Wave 40.
  • Unlike in Archangel where the occasional Secondary Objective (Destroy Helipad), if completed, would give the player extra XP, The Secondary Objective in Halcyon does not give extra XP and furthermore it must be completed in order to move on to the next wave. 
  • This is the first Event to offer a Schematic as a prize. Schematic's allow the player to Customize an additional Unit Type in the Workshop to the ones already available, in this case it adds the Gatling Truck.
  • Extraction Waves (for waves 1 - 25): 3, 6, 9,12, 15, 17, 20, 23 & 25.
  • Wave eXP Milestones ( Completed Waves ):
    • Wave 06 (1,500 eXP) = Attack Dog - The cheapest Prize.
    • Wave 15 (5,370 eXP) = Waves start to give Thorium ( 20,000 +1000 each wave)
    • Wave 20 (8,570 eXP) = Waves give Thorium (25,000 +100 each wave)
    • Wave 22 (10,060 eXP) = Elite Razorback.
    • Wave 30  (17,220 eXP) = Waves are 1000 XP+
    • Wave 30  (17,220 eXP) = Thorium increases each wave +250.

  — First description 

The new Red Lokust Halcyon attack helicopter is nearly complete, Commander. Our only option is to attack and capture the engineers working on this project. Take what's theirs, Commander, and leave nothing in your wake.
  — Second description 

The raw power of Kalashnikov's Halcyon is far greater than we imagined. This anti-vehicle helicopter is capable of widespread damage from unprecedented range. You must kidnap Red Lokust engineers in order to leverage this technology. Ready your platoons, the attack begins in less than 24 hours!
  — Third Description 

Operation: Halcyon ends in less than 24 hours, Commander! Have you done enough damage to Red Lokust bases to win the Halcyon Chopper?
  — Fourth Description
