What are Paints

Paints are protective colored "Skins" for your tank. You can buy them in the garage , individually or in a certain kit . Each has a different design and protection. The protection shows how much reduced damage you will receive (in percent form) from Turrets. Ever since update 208, Micro-upgrades can make your paint stronger in turret-protection. You can spend crystals to upgrade how well your paint protects.

The paints at the earliest rank requirements have basic designs and no protection. When you start tanki online, you have "Green" as your first paint. The first paints that have no protections are usually colors such as red, blue, orange, etc. The paints in the middle have colorful designs and low to medium damage protection from different turrets. These are more popular as they are cheaper and has a lower rank requirement and cost. 

The ultimate paint is either the "Champion paint" -or more likely- the controversial paint "Lord/Devil's Paint/Lord of Paint" (no authentic name or info). There are also special paints on special events in Tanki Online like the "Holiday Paint". Holiday is just a basic special paint that changes on different holidays such as Halloween, Valentines Day, Christmas, etc. There are also paints only given to administrators, forum moderators, professionals, etc. (i.e., Helper, Reporter, Glide, etc.)

After Update 230, you can now change your Paint-choice in the middle of the game, without exiting.
