Head for the Depths This Halloween with World of Warships

For the first time ever, submarines are available in the new “Terror of the Deep” operation

From today, the third mission in the Halloween series is available bringing with it one of the most requested and anticipated features in World of Warships history: submarines. “Terror of the Deep” puts players in the submerged steel beasts and task them with the new dimension (and challenge): depth!

The spooky new operation will run from tonight until 15th November giving players two weeks to take on this new challenge and get to grips with the latest addition to World of Warships. There will be five different submarines, each with their own unique commanders and loadouts, to use during the operation:

  • Barracuda (Commander: Victor F. Einstein)
  • Zipper Sub (Commander: Mina Hurray)
  • Gerfalcon (Commander: Ivan K. Ulibin)
  • Seelöwe (Commander: Lazarus Centurio)
  • Killer Whale (Commander: Klaus V. Teslau)

The mission of these seafaring commanders and their subs is to see off the villainous Rasputin—the evil force of the twisted, spooky world.



Players will start off with the Barracuda in their Port and each of the others can be unlocked throughout the event for completing certain criteria. With the addition of the submarines, a new dimension will be introduced: depth. Changes in depth will affect visibility and the possibility to attack depending on whether you are on the water’s surface, periscope depth or deep waters. Also, make sure to keep an eye out for a new type of danger: depth charges.

The Halloween mode is a special event that allows developers to try out and test new game mechanics and features that could be used in the future. After the operation’s completion, the World of Warships team will evaluate community feedback and consider introducing submarines as the fifth ship class in the game.
