About
Arknights is a mobile tower defense (TD) game developed by Hypergryph. Originally released in mainland China (CN) on May 1, 2019, it later received a release in Japan, Korea, North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia (collectively known as Global) by Yostar on January 16, 2020, and in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau (TW) by Longcheng on June 29, 2020.

While at first it appears to be a deceptively simple TD, Arknights tends to be more difficult than the run-of-the-mill TD game due to tricky maps, enemy design, and challenging combat puzzles. One strong aspect of the game is the player's management of Operators and the correct use of their abilities to achieve victory. Arknights also features an important base building feature.

Arknights utilizes a gacha system for players to obtain Operators, however, the game designs stages to be solvable using Operators of the most common rarities. In addition, the Recruitment system permits the free, albeit rare, acquisition of most of the older high rarity Operators.

Due to the differing release dates of each version as well as other factors, the Global server of Arknights is ~6 months behind the CN server, while the TW server is ~8 months behind CN (~3 months behind Global).

What's Up and New sticker.png
Episode 13 will be released in April 16, precluded by the second Tactical Support event which is live until April 30, so prepare yourselves to return to Londinium and continue our journey in the Main Theme where things will escalate!

Design of Strife is now live as well, so let's experience a new game mode which tests your Arknights skills (and whether you can use broken Operators good enough or not)!

For Muslim Arknights players and Arknights Terra Wiki contributors, Happy Eid Mubarak/al-Fitr 1445 AH/2024 CE! The staff of Arknights Terra Wiki would like to apologize for any mistakes we have committed in the past, as to err is human.
Did You Know sticker.png
  • ...that due to the Global server's scheduling, the summer-themed Carnival events are released during winter (in the Northern Hemisphere) on the Global server?
  • ...that the artwork of many recent Operators were not done by their respective original illustrators?
  • ...that Kal'tsit was usable as an Operator in the beta of Arknights, where her gameplay differed from that of her current incarnation?
  • ...that because Amiya's Touch the Stars and Exusiai's "City Rider" outfits are exclusive to the CN server, Astesia, Jessica, and Suzuran are the only Operators with three outfits in the Global server as of December 2023?
  • ...that April, Ash, Tachanka, and the Terra Research Commission are the only Operators who received an outfit when they were released?
  • ...that Contingency Contract Base Point's trailer for each of the four Arknights servers featured different gameplay footage?
  • ...that despite its mixed reception, Pinch-Out Experimental Operation had become the basis for the Battleplan iterations of Contingency Contract, starting with C.C. Pyrolysis?
  • ...that alchemaniac and Namie had a back-and-forth exchange of jabs involving Goldenglow on Twitter/X?
  • ...that in a fit of irony, most Victorian Operators with English dialogues do not speak British English even though Victoria is Terra's analogue to the United Kingdom?
