War Hero Trials

To be able to complete these challenges you will want to have a good set of War Heroes levelled up sufficiently and ideally with increased Prowess Levels. It is also important to understand that only the War Heroes you have appointed will count towards the stats in this trial. Below you will see a screenshot of the War Hero Hall and the benefits the appointed War Heroes have to offer.

Tip: As the trials don’t have a limit at how many times you can attempt them, you can easily go into your War Hero Hall and change out War Heroes and try different combinations until you make progress.

Equipment Challenges

Equipment has a major role in the game and the better the Equipment you have, generally the better the stats. With Equipment Challenges, you can test your Equipment as it will use the stats which your items have.

The stats which are tested in these challenges are combat stats. Any stats such as Gathering Bonuses or Trap Bonuses are not used.

Tip: Medals which you have placed into your Equipment do not count towards stats used in Equipment Trials. It is purely Equipment Stats. This include any Set Resonance and Enhancement Resonance Bonuses.

Correctly placing Assault & Guardian point on your Bomber will be the essential ingredient to successfully passing Bomber Challenges. The higher the level of your Bomber , the more times you will be able to upgrade your Bomber Abilities to a max of 31 (32 with the Assault Turrets/Guardian Radar Secret Weapons)

In addition to the level of your Bomber abilities, the enhancement level of your Bombers abilities will also be calculated into the stats used for this challenge.

Combo Challenges

This challenge will test a combination of your Equipment and Medal stats. Unlike the Equipment challenge, this one will include all of your Medals. A good way to make a nice start on this challenge is to try and equip yourself with Honor Medals, and at least some Purple / Orange Equipment. Obviously, the better the Medals and Equipment the further though you will be able to progress. As with Equipment Challenges, your Set and Enhancement Resonance bonuses will be included in this set of Challenges

Tip: Obtaining Medals/Medal Fragments can be achieved through the Tesla Tower, Shooting Range, Defense Store, Alliance Aid, Supersoldier Arena, Gold Event, In-Game Special Events or In-game purchasing. As additional updates are released their may be more ways to obtain them.

Research Challenges

Possibly one of the harder challenges out of most Commander Challenges is the Research Challenge. The Research Challenges take into consideration your COMBAT research. This means any research from the Combat and Combat II trees will provide contributions towards your stats.

Tip: Levelling up your Research Lab will allow you to research deeper into the Combat Tree. To be able to start Combat II you will need a Research Lab 26. Research can be a tedious task as some research can take time. Keeping up on research is essential not only for Commander Challenges but your overall game play in general.

Medal Challenges

To be successful at this challenge you will need to ensure you have as many combat focused medals equipped as possible. To make a good start on these challenges you will want to focus on Honor Medals. Honor Medals provide a good start with all around troop specific stats and troop stats in general.

The upgrade from Honor Medals is Justice Medals and then Cobra Medals, although Cobra Medals are easier to obtain through the Tesla Tower where you can get fragments on a daily basis.

Tip: Many of the items you get from special events in game, such as the Thanksgiving Turkeys, will give you basic Medals or Refining Medals quite often. Use these to upgrade your Honor, Justice or Cobra Medals.

Building Challenges

This challenge will focus on your Liberty Flag benefits your buildings provide and the benefits gained from your Liberty Statues. To be able to apply Liberty Flags to your buildings you will first need Headquarters 10 to unlock the ability to do so and then each building you wish to add Liberty Flag bonuses to will need to be a minimum of Level 10. To upgrade your Liberty Flag level on each individual building you will need to upgrade each respective building. Liberty Statues will only be able to be used once you have reached Headquarters 15.

Tip: Liberty Flags from the Tesla Tower Store are quite cheap and if you are in an active alliance with a Defense Department, using the Liberty Duty you can get upto 3,575 Liberty Flags a week!

Commander Challenges Battle Report

Once you are either Victorious or Defeated on a Commander Challenge you willalways receive a Battle Report. Understanding the Battle Report is important to learning how to progress with the more difficult challenges. Below is an example battle report from the Equipment Challenges. In the Battle Report you will clearly be able to see areas which need to worked on and areas which are currently good with the Red or Green Arrows comparing stats between yourself on the left and the opponent on the right.
