Detailed terms

  • The exact terms of each task can be found in the “Nickname → Achievements → Summer Extreme” window.
  • To get a Mark of distinction, you need to complete a task in the corresponding vehicle type in the corresponding game mode. For example, a Mark of distinction for a pilot can be received only by playing Air battles (AB/RB/SB).
  • You can complete the tasks in multiplayer battles in all game modes except for “Assault”.
  • You can complete the tasks not only in vehicles of Rank III and above, but also in lower rank event vehicles. You could receive those in large events such as winter and summer marathons, WWII chronicles, BP seasons and craft marathons. In the vehicle cards of such vehicles you can find the names of events in which said vehicles first became available in the game.
  • You have received the Mark of distinction if the achievement’s color is golden.
  • Missed Marks of distinction can be purchased for Golden Eagles in the Achievements window until August 31st, 2023. Make sure you pick the right achievement category: for tankers, pilots and sailors.
  • Prizes received in the form of tradable coupons will be available for trading on the market from September 1st, 2023. The time from which the coupon can be traded can be viewed in the game in the coupon description. The option of trading each coupon separately depends on the time of its receipt and doesn’t depend on the vehicle type.
  • For 8 Marks of distinction you receive an untradable coupon for a vehicle. Upon activating it, you will instantly receive a corresponding vehicle. If you do not wish to use the vehicle and want to sell the coupon on the Marketplace instead, you need the “Upgrade for coupon” item.
  • For 10 Marks of distinction you receive an untradable “Upgrade for coupon” item. You can use it to make the vehicle coupon you received tradable and then sell it on the Marketplace. The date on which a traded coupon becomes available for sale can be seen in its description in the game.
  • The “Upgrade for coupon” item has an expiration date. You can either use it or exchange it for Warbonds before it expires.
  • PlayStation and Xbox players will be able to exchange decal coupons for similar ones. The exchange is available in the “Workshop → Exchange items “Summer Extreme” window.

See you on the battlefield!


Dammit, I usually just ignore these events because they are a pain in the… especially if you only really play ASB. But now there is a naval vessel I want.

During the last winter marathon, I admit that I made no effort to participate and get the main tank prize because I have no taste for the top tier.

But there, a vehicle of the WW2, a German/French hybrid engineering, premium and recon armored car… You can be sure that I will do everything to get it ! And the camo is a true banger.

Thank Gaijin to give some love to WW2 aficionados !


Another Su-25??


I wish the decals were historical for once, gaijin quietly got rid of the authentic decals events and 9 out of 10 events they do now contain the same old fictional/themed decals.
i just dont see the incentive to put stickers of people doing sports on the side of my tank


i know it was the same last time but 40k every 2 days seems like a lot 30k sounds a lot better


You shouldn’t give this Su-25 R-73 AAMs. This super missiles shouldn’t be first introduced on a event vehicle.

I agree, that feedback is being given every year and thoroughly ignored.

For average- good player (in Air) 7 games x 1.5k points a day is fair. 20k - 2day target


You should touch up the profile pic some more. The generation has some noticable issues on the motorbike.

Overall shape is very wonky, the motorcycle is not symmetrical at all.

Biggest issue is the 2nd headlight and fairing that was generated behind the actual one

Honestly I don’t think the pfp fits the theme either cause it’s just a motorcycle going through a city street. Not very “extreme” or “sport”. A mountain or forest background would’ve been more fitting.



What does the 10th mark of distinction provide to console players?

@Stona_WT Will we be able to grind this event in naval EC? Asking because the article doesn’t mention it’s exclusion specifically.


Grinding 40k for each star is far too much. It is 80k if you want airplane and tank, time spent with the game is like a daily job, with some overtime.

Yes, I know it is the same as previous time. It was too much previous time too.

I’m playing this game for years, having spent quite a lot of bucks here. But, since 40k “events” introduced a skipped each and every one… Why Gaijin always refuses to listen when asked politely? Is it really boycotts and review bombings the only way? I hope not, I’ve spent so much time with the game and I really like it.

40k… okay, like the last one, i’ll skip it and play another game…
This will be far less angryness and disillusionment!


Please fix and buff the Renown. At the very least her BR needs to be lowered to 6.7 and the draft fixed, or just lowered to 6.3 in the current state, or I might as well give up my plans to pay GE for her… I suspect others would make similar choices. She’s not a worthy prize right now…

It says you can do the event in any multiplayer mode except Assault. Does this include squadron battles ?

is this event live now? and how can i win the reward vehicles? thanks

It starts in two hours. You need 40K mission points every two days for one star. 8 stars for a vehicle. 10 if you want to sell it. It’s all in the post just scroll all the way up

does anyone have the table with the total scores to be achieved for the event according to rank/mode of play?

I remember someone doing that for the last event but i dont find on the old forum.

Where is Ice Cream Bucket???
