|Metal / Oil||Thorium|
Resources are very important in War Commander and is the life blood of the player. Metal and Oil are required to build and upgrade Barricades, Buildings and Turrets, produce and upgrade Units and to repair anything damaged. Thorium is required only in the late stages of upgrades.
The collection of Resources is one way for a player to gain Experience Point needed for Level advancement.
The Different Resources
There are 3 Different Resources that each play a specific Role in the Game and your Operations.
Metal and Oil: Metal and Oil are both used for pretty much every task in the entire game, from building units and vehicles to constructing Turrets to upgrading your units. They are both very important and must be obtained and kept safe. Both can easily be obtained by production in your main base, looting other players bases and controlling their corresponding deposits.
Thorium: The Rare Thorium resource is by far the most difficult to obtain of all the 3 Resources. It can only be obtained through 2 methods. Looting enemy bases and defeating some special rogue bases (Hellhounds 45 Fortress for example). Thorium has special properties and if used to upgrade a unit, the process will take a full 5 SECONDS and will grant them a special permanent bonus.
Resources can be obtained by six methods:
- Oil Pumps & Metal Factory - Done by the building of Oil Pumps and Metal Factories on Players Base.
- Resource Deposits - Done by Capturing a Deposit from either a Rogue Faction or another player.
- Attacking Rogue Faction Bases - Done by destroying Storage's, Pumps, Factories and the Command Center.
- Attacking Enemy Bases - Done by destroying Storage's, Pumps, Factories and Command Centers
- Scraping the metal of rusty cars - Done by clicking them (you only obtain a little amount of metal)
- Gifts - Done by receiving a resources crate from a friend.
Once obtained each Resource is kept in its own Storage on the players base until needed. The three storage buildings are:
Beware! Enemy Players may steal resources by attacking and destroying these storage's so take care to protect them with Base Defenses. You can save most of your resources by putting them into a large upgrade when you know you're going to get hit at night, then in the morning when you get up stop the upgrade and you get back most of your resources.

- Very little resources can be obtained by destroying Metal Factories & Oil Pumps. A majority is kept in the storage's and about a third is housed in the Command Center.
- Resources obtained from Deposits do not generate Experience Points.
- Metal Factories and Oil Pumps can use a lot of power but only when generating. Therefore if power is an issue they can be left full and drawing no power.
- Metal Factories and Oil Pumps are also referred to as the Resource "Producers".
- The rare Thorium resource is the only Resource that cannot be mined in your main base.
- Thorium is in fact a real life element. Wikipedia: Thorium.
