Operation: Meltdown is a PvE mission in Armored Warfare.

Briefing[ | ]

"June 2, 2036. The Project Militia is invading! Their goal is to bring this area down by causing the nearby nuclear reactor to meltdown. You must protect the facility at all costs!"

Primary Objective[ | ]

Stop Enemies from Destroying Dam[ | ]

The first objective is to protect the dam located between B6 and B7 for 4 minutes.

Defend the Control Facility[ | ]

After successfully protecting the dam from enemy attacks, defend the control point at D5 for 4 minutes.

Save the Reactor[ | ]

The final portion of the mission requires the player to protect the two cooling towers at G3 and H4 for 5 minutes and 15 seconds. The mission fails if both towers' health become depleted from enemy fire.

Secondary Objective[ | ]

Destroy SAM Launchers[ | ]

Players have 12 minutes to destroy six SAM sites that scatter across the map.

Strategy[ | ]

Players should anticipate a skirmish right at the start of the mission as a small group of enemies spawns just ahead of the starting position. Afterwards, head east and engage the enemies in the waterway. On Hardcore difficulty, some enemies also spawn on ridges between C6 and C7.

Enemies mostly approach the control point from the south, but they can also come from the roads to the east and west. Take cover behind nearby buildings, or stay further back at C6 to defend against the attackers.

The last objective requires at least one cooling tower to remaining standing by the end of the mission. Enemies mostly appear from the southern border, but as players approach the reactor and clear out the enemies, enemy reinforcement can also appear from behind up north. A lieutenant vehicle can also spawn in the final phase of the mission. Players should be wary of their own positioning not only to prevent being attacked from multiple fronts, but also to minimize collateral damage on the cooling towers as a result of crossfire or stray shots by enemy vehicles.

If all available enemies have been destroyed and secondary objective is still active, players will need to destroy all remaining SAM sites or allow either objective timer to reach zero in order to complete the mission.

Rewards[ | ]

Meltdown has a x4.15 Experience Experience multiplier and base x13.41 Credits Credits multiplier for completing the mission. The latter can be boosted to x20.13 if secondary objective is complete.
