 Why are these missions so complicated? 

 

It's sort of a home-grown workaround using tokens and bonus codes rather than being built in as a full event, so it's a bit wonky.

I know the explanation is kind of confusing. Just think of it like this.

Redeem the "January" codes (BIGWHEELS is one of them, bug your favorite Community Contributor for their code, check our social media and Youtube for the other codes, they're all up) 

  • For every code you redeem, you'll get a Token that allows you to complete Mission 1 (once per token).
  • If you get 4 Tokens, after you Complete Mission 1 one time, you will get a Super-TokenThe Super-Token will unlock Mission 2.
  • At this point, you'll want to play the tank that should get the 30K XP.
  • Assuming you place in the Top 10 again, you will complete Mission 1 and Mission 2. You'll get the boosters for Mission 1 and the XP/Food for Mission 2.
  • Afterwards, you'll still be able to complete Mission 1 two more times.

Seriously I am more confused than before.  February seems fairly straightforward.  But what January scavenger hunt codes - I check the forum every day and I don't remember anyone even mentioning any.  When is the last date one can even enter these codes - is/was it today, Jan 31? 

 

I know it's kinda dumb that most of the codes are dropping at the end of the month. Without going into too many boring details, there was some back and forth about prizing and by the time everything got sorted, the January Plan was pretty much set in stone. The workaround is to have the missions start at the beginning of this month. It's honestly my fault for not getting the ball rolling on the project sooner. 

This month will be cool, though. You can get an absolutely ridiculous amount of boosters if you get all the codes in February. XanderP has the code up on his channels and he will be doing another code drop later this month as well so make sure you give him a follow!

So wait, the January scavenger hunt missions are available Feb 6th thru the 11th and the February scavenger hunt missions are available Feb 1st???  Is that right?  So when was the January codes made available?  I've looked everywhere and I don't see any January codes.

January Missions are available Feb 6th - 11th
The codes are live. Check our recent Facebook posts, Articles on the World of Tanks website (hint: it's hidden somewhere in one of the recent sales articles), WoT Weekly videos on Youtube
You could also try scrolling through this thread because some cheeky players have already reposted the codes in here ;)

The February Scavenger Hunt Missions will be available during the first week of March (exact dates are pending approval but I should have them next week!)

The first February Code is up on XanderP's Twitch Channel, there will be 27 more dropping this month (one per day), which correspond with missions that will be active in March.

SO WE READ ALL YOUR LITTLE NEWS ARTICALES FOR THE MONTH AND NOTHING EVER POPS UP ABOUT THE SCAVANGER HUNT, NOR DO ANY OF THE CC's I WATCH HAVE ANYTHING ON IT, UNTIL THE END OF THE MONTH. SO ARE THE CODES I'VE SEEN TODAY FOR THE JANUARY OR THE FEBUARY HUNT? DO I NEED TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT 1000 HOURS OF WHO KNOWS HOW MANY CC's VIDEOS TO TRY AND FIND THEM. I KNOW WHAT THE TERM SCAVENGER HUNT IMPLIES, BUT YOU HAVE MADE THIS IMPOSIBLE TO KEEP UP WITH OR EVEN CARE ABOUT AT THIS POINT.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GO BACK TO "TANK REWARDS" WERE THE MISSIONS WERE IN THE GAME AND THE OBJECTIVES AND PRIZES WERE CLEAR.

 

 

 

THE CODES I'VE GATHERD SO FAR ARE; BIGWHEELS,

 FYI,   FPJY5AFX is the 1st February Code
 

Details for Jan summarized below

Hat tip to Tap_ski and Mordrin 0717 who helped gather the codes. Hat tip to Tap-Ski who started consolidating them in a post

 

Here are all the codes

 

Scavenger hunt Bonus Codes (called Booster Codes now)
   January

Booster Code #1 CC name + NY19 (can use only one)
  ⦁ 4TANKNY19   *verified
  ⦁ MENZNY19    *verified
  ⦁ GUIDONY19  *verified

Booster Code #2  on  WoT NA Website  (Hat Tip to Moridin) 

  ⦁ BIGWHEELS  *verified

Booster Code #3  on  WoT NA Facebook Page

  ⦁ WOTSOCIALNY19  *verified    
Booster Code #4  on  WoT Weekly / YouTube 

  ⦁ THEDUCKISBEST *verified  

 

Here is the official announcement of how it works

 

Some of you may have noticed that January Scavenger Hunt codes seem not to be awarding anything - This is because all rewards for the Scavenger Hunt will go out via a series of hidden missions, which will be active starting February 6th, running until February 11th.

 

As a reminder, there are 4 Code sets: WoT Website/News Portal, Youtube (WoT Weekly), Social Media (Facebook, Twitter), and our Community Contributors' various Youtube/Twitch Channels and websites.


Each Code Set will award you with 1 token when redeemed, and the token will give you the following hidden mission when you log in between February 6th - 11th.

 

Mission 1: Play a battle and place in the top 10 XP Earners on your team.
Reward: 

3x EXP Booster 50% 1 Hour

3x Crew EXP Booster 100% 1 Hour

3x Credit Booster 50% 1 Hour

 

Can be completed up to 4 times, once per token.

If you collect all 4 tokens, you will also receive the following mission:

Mission 2: Play 2 battles, placing in the top 10 XP earners on your team.

Reward:

  • 30,000 XP, applied to the vehicle used to complete the second battle
  • 3 of each nation's food consumable


This missions are not repeatable on each tank. Once you complete mission 1 all 4 times, and mission 2 once, you're done with the missions. 
To clarify, Mission 2 will be triggered the second time you place in the top 10 XP earners that day. After you complete Mission 2, you should still be able to complete Mission 1 another two times, for a total of 4 completions!

 

(Assuming you place in the top 10 XP earners on your team in your first 4 battles for the day - Battle 1: Mission 1, Battle 2: Missions 1 and 2, Battle 3: Mission 1, Battle 4: Mission 1 - You will want to pick a specific vehicle to use when you try for the 30K XP because once it's applied, Customer Support has no way of moving this to a different vehicle.)

Tankers, 

I've got some new information for you regarding the January & February Scavenger Hunts.

The February Scavenger Hunt is going to be a little bit different. February is going to be all about our Community Contributors! During every day in February, one of our Community Contributors will be dropping a new bonus code on their channel. Each of the codes will award you with the same Boosters as before, and you can collect up to 28 Bonus Codes during the Month, earning extra rewards based on the total number of Scavenger Hunt codes you redeem in February – the more codes you redeem, the more extra prizes you will earn.

Here’s the catch: We’re only going to reveal the first Contributor you should tune into, and each code will only be active for 48 hours! It’s up to you to stay up to date and tune in to the right Contributors every day at the right time and stick around for their code.

So how do you get started? XanderP will be kicking off the February Scavenger Hunt Tomorrow,  February 1st, at 10AM CT.

He will be sharing his code on his Twitch Channel (Twitch.tv/XanderPTV), as well as his Facebook Community, World of Tanks International(https://www.facebook.com/groups/wotinternational/). If you can’t tune in at 10AM, Xander’s got you covered – the code (as well as information on who you need to watch next) will be visible somewhere on his Channel all day. You need to redeem the code before February 3rd at 00:00 CT.

The next code will go out on February 2nd, and will be active until February 4th at 00:00 CT. The remaining codes will go out during the rest of the month with according to the same release format and timing.

 

 

 

 

It's sort of a home-grown workaround using tokens and bonus codes rather than being built in as a full event, so it's a bit wonky.

I know the explanation is kind of confusing. Just think of it like this.

  • Afterwards, you'll still be able to complete Mission 1 two more times.

Hi DomoSapien

 

Thank you. I missed a post and see you all ready answered this.

 

People are asking this. Can you answer?

 

The codes for the Feb hunt are being accepted by the WG Code Redeemer but not awarding anything in game. Will they be active 02-06 or will they be accumulated during the Month of Feb and awarded once the game is complete?

I'm honestly having a lot of fun with this.  Thanks for making it happen. 

There's something about this that creates a feeling of "insider" when a code gets redeemed successfully. lol

 

My favorite was the 5x XP for each tank in the garage.  That was KILLER.

Actually created a spreadsheet to keep track of which tanks rewards had been redeemed and took my metagaming to a new level.

 its not a hidden scavenger hunt is it?  i find it all a little to confusing and wish things were a little more transparent than this hidden crap.  give us a way to track the codes entered and the total needed somewhere.  When I redeem a code, it should let me know what to expect and when, not a ty for redeeming. That is useless information. putting in codes for january? its february, how do i know if i already redeemed the codes. i just put them all in again, and it says ty.   how is that helpful. hidden scavenger hunt?  good luck, i have a hidden credit card.

I swear that people do not even read the ORIGINAL POST, and just reply to the thread with their questions....questions answered if they BOTHERED TO READ.

 

Do not hold anyone's hand. If they cannot READ or UNDERSTAND what is written then obviously they deserve nothing.

The entitlement around here is insane.

 

And BTW, THANK YOU to WG and the OP for making this happen for attempting to clarify things.

OK, I'm looking for today's code.  It was supposed to be on Sofilein's stream.  But, I guess she isn't streaming today?  So, we were told by Fortec to go back to XanderP, but I don't see anything there either.  Anyone find it?

Code 9NX7JP2F is not working for me.

Should be good for 48hrs right?

 

Found out on another thread { if you missed day 3 because of the delay you will be awarded the code at the end}

 

Good luck everyone and thanks for these tips!
