Operation: Zero Hour is a PvE mission in Armored Warfare.

Briefing[ | ]

"July 31, 2034. The PLM are in the middle of sabotaging a prototype reactor that is about to come online. Deactivate the explosives and deal with PLM forces before the plant goes nuclear."

Primary Objective[ | ]

Deactivate the Explosives[ | ]

Capture three control points at F2, H2, and I3 within 6 minutes and 30 seconds.

Secure the Science Facility[ | ]

Capture control point at E4 within 3 minutes and 50 seconds

Defend the Town[ | ]

Defend control point at F6 for 4 minutes and 30 seconds.

Secondary Objective[ | ]

There are a total of three secondary objectives that appear over the course of the mission. All require a player vehicle to drive over a white circle indicated on the minimap within the time limit.

Rescue the Scientist[ | ]

Reach the white circle at B4, C3, or G8 within 4 minutes.

Rescue the Researcher[ | ]

Reach the white circle located between D8 and E8 or at G3 within 4 minutes.

Rescue the Engineer[ | ]

Reach the white circle at B6, D7, or F2 within 3 minutes.

Strategy[ | ]

Players should expect light enemy presence along the F row east of the river as they traverse southwards from the starting position, and much heavier resistance after entering the reactor premise around F3 and H3. Light vehicles can position themselves on the hill at E4 to provide fire support from afar, whereas armored vehicles should make use of narrow paths to protect themselves from enemy flanking attacks in their advance.

Enemies in the second phase come in two waves: one from the map border west of the control point, and another from the east via the southern slope at a later time. Both waves will attempt to converge towards the control point, therefore it is important to eliminate them or capture the control point swiftly before the enemies pose too much of a problem within the time limit.

The final objective is located on open ground, with enemies mostly attacking from the northeast or northwest of the control point. A lieutenant vehicle will also appear in this assault. A common approach is to have armored vehicles to go hull-down near the control point to spot and defend incoming enemies, while lighter vehicles attack from the cliff at E4 and spot other enemies coming from the west side of the river. Alternatively, the southern cliff near G7 can provide high ground and moderate cover for a light vehicle to spot enemy vehicles attempting to capture the control point.

Rewards[ | ]

Zero Hour has a x3.96 Experience Experience multiplier and base x12.55 Credits Credits multiplier for completing the mission. The latter can be boosted to x18.85 if all secondary objectives are complete.
