The Rotor, previously known as the Helicopter, is a Tier 3 Tank that upgrades from the Twin and the Propeller at level 30.


The Rotor has a circular body and a Twin gun on its front. Two small thruster guns are located on its back.


The rear guns of the Rotor provide forward recoil and help the tank move at a faster speed than other tanks, while its front guns provide a strong stream of bullets comparable to the Twin's. Aside from the Twin barrel and consenquently slower propel speed, nothing changed.


The Rotor upgrades from the Twin.png Twin and the Propeller.png Propeller at level 30.

The Rotor can upgrade to the following:


As the Rotor

  • Use your mobility as the Rotor to your advantage.
  • Strafe around enemy bullets and drones and try to ambush them with your speed.
  • Since the Rotor has strong frontal fire, it does not need to ram or get as close as other tanks in order to deal damage.
  • The Rotor has less forwards recoil. Take note of this.

Against the Rotor

  • The Rotor is slightly slower than other Propeller-type tanks due to the recoil of its front guns.
  • As a tank from the Sniper or the Director branch, try to use your larger FoV to spot and avoid Rotors. If auto-fire is turned off using drone tanks, the drones will be more likely to kill the Rotor.
  • A Propeller can easily escape/kill a Rotor due to its noticeably higher forwards recoil.



  • The Rotor was originally added as the Helicopter on 17 January 2019. On 17 June 2020, the Helicopter was renamed to the Rotor as the Rescue Helicopter, the Whirlybird and the Apache had different mechanics and were designed to look like actual Helicopters.
