What does Defense do? (Explained)


Recommended Posts


What is Defense? what does it do?

Defense lowers the damage your units take from any source. The more Defense your unit has, the less damage it will take when attacked. But how much? Read on to find out!

Defense works as follows:

(Def/1000+Def )= Damage Mitigation

For example, if you have a Unit with Defense 200, then:


This translates into 16.66% damage mitigation. What is damage mitigation? how much less damage you take when attacked. In this example, when your Unit with 200 Defense is attacked, for every 100 points of damage, it ignores 16.66 of it, taking only


Not a big difference, right? Let's see what happens when you crank up the Defense Stat:

500 Defense (500/1500)=33.33%

600 Defense (600/1600)=37.5%

700 Defense = 41.17%

1000 Defense = 50%

1500 Defense = 60%

2100 Defense = 67.74%

And so on. At 2,100 Defense, instead of taking 100 points of damage, you take 32.26!

Defense is a very important stat to consider when evaluating a Units survivability. Units with both high HP and Defense are incredibly durable. I hope this Intel helps inform your Battlefield decisions Commander!

Hi, thanks for the explanation. I wondered if there was a difference between a light tank and a heavy tank with equal defense and life ?. What are these letters, defensive parameters?

Those are a visual aid to give you an idea of where this unit ranks overall. In your example, they would have the same survivability since currently there aren't any effects that specifically distinguish between light and heavy tanks.

Cos'è la Difesa? Che cosa fa?

La difesa riduce il danno che le tue unità subiscono da qualsiasi fonte. Più Difesa ha la tua unità, meno danni subirà quando verrà attaccata. Ma quanto? Continuate a leggere per scoprirlo!

La difesa funziona come segue:

(Def/1000+Def )= Mitigazione dei danni

Ad esempio, se hai un'Unità con Difesa 200, allora:


Questo si traduce in una riduzione del danno del 16,66%. Cos'è la mitigazione dei danni? quanti meno danni subisci quando vieni attaccato. In questo esempio, quando la tua Unità con 200 Difesa viene attaccata, per ogni 100 punti di danno, ne ignora 16,66, prendendo solo


Non una grande differenza, vero? Vediamo cosa succede quando aumenti la statistica di difesa:

500 Difesa (500/1500)=33,33%

600 Difesa (600/1600)=37,5%

700 Difesa = 41,17%

1000 Difesa = 50%

1500 Difesa = 60%

2100 Difesa = 67,74%

E così via. A 2.100 Difesa, invece di subire 100 punti di danno, ne subisci 32,26!

La difesa è una statistica molto importante da considerare quando si valuta la sopravvivenza di un'unità. Le unità con HP e Difesa elevati sono incredibilmente resistenti. Spero che questo Intel aiuti a informare le tue decisioni sul campo di battaglia, comandante!

pretty numbers don't matter. you do not take into account the amount of HP and the amount of damage. If the damage is higher than your HP value, these numbers do not matter. For example. If there is 40+ m40 in the forest or FLAK, your unit will die immediately. Your new officer is shit. You are not fixing the balance, you are doing marketing. When will you find your eggs and reduce the damage for m40 and flak? their numbers break the balance of power.
