It’s summertime! If you think that means visiting exotic islands and sipping dry martinis, you’re sorely mistaken: the only drink you’ll be sipping is battery acid. Gray Gravel Co. has taken their robot menaces from the rainforests of New Mexico and shipped them to every corner of the earth to destroy our facilities.
Operation Voltaic Violence is a new Mann vs. Machine charity event brought to you by Moonlight MvM featuring 6 intermediate, 9 advanced, and 6 expert missions across 16 maps. Destroy the robots to earn up to 2 in-game medals! Event servers are available worldwide in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and South Africa.
If missing your federally-mandated vacation days doesn’t sound appealing to you, you can also donate to The ALS Association to help fund research for treating and curing ALS. Donating $5 USD will net you an in-game donator medal! Click here for information on how to donate.
Interested in making your own custom MvM content? New submissions are already open for our next event! Check out our guides for content creation or join the Moonlight MvM Discord for more information. All contributors will earn a special in-game creator medal!
Have fun, but don’t delay, as this tour will end in 2 weeks on June 12th, 2023!

Fall in, men! As the sun creeps over the foggy horizon, so does the adrenaline of war! You know the rules: last one alive, lock the door!
Fortress Faceoffs is prepared to kick off 2023 with Mann O' War, a new all-inclusive event (and they don't just mean skill level)! In this battle, you and four friends may assign yourselves to any of the nine positions a mercenary can occupy! Prove that your team knows war like no other by topping the Group Stage in the tournament bracket, then proceed to the prestigious Top 16! Though you may have already gotten used to senseless violence without benefit, there is a new art of war that Sun Tzu has yet to consider: MONEY!
With the brand-new, state-of-the-art implementation of VScript, the impossible has just been made possible! For each kill confirmed during your enlisting, you gain a cash reward in return! Put these ferocious funds to use at the upgrade stations inside your spawn rooms and enhance your armaments with the same power-ups used to blast steel into shrapnel for the last 10 years (except now, it's more like blasting guts into gibs)!
Sign up today and tell your friends to mention your name for a referral bonus, which will be awarded to each team member in the form of a raffle ticket to fight a silverback gorilla!* The games begin on May 7th @ 11:59 PM / 23:59 BST for all regions and will continue for roughly 2 weeks, though you do NOT have to actively participate this long! The top 8 teams will progress to make live history as leaders command their squadrons to certain victory... or more likely, death! For more information about event rules, prizes, and more, join the Fortress Faceoffs Discord and bring your shiniest badges of honor from home since they do not have any right now!
*Gorilla not included as potential event prize opportunity - they have all been mysteriously exterminated by an unknown maniac. This has instead been replaced by a variety of event-themed in-game items.

Fortress Faceoffs presents to you a tale as old as time: A crew of mercs fighting for their lives to escape the grasp of Hell!
Happens to the best of us, of course. In a voyage to uncover a cache of hidden treasure within the murky and treacherous waters of Michiganne, a ship of five drunken savages (that's you!) was caught in the eye of a treacherous storm and cast out to sea. This invoked the presence of a being only spoken of in shanties... Having been fed up with the sudden delivery of dead meat on his doorstep, THE DEVIL!!! himself forced these brutes back onto their boats and had them float across the River Styx so that he could be left in peace. After regaining consciousness and adjusting their one good eye, these men realized they weren't alone on their quest! An amassment of ships was on the same track, all with the goal of claiming bounty! Armed with cannons and ready to charge, these scurvy dogs must defeat all the other swashbucklin' sailors and make it to the treasure alone! With the sound of explosions and slurred screams from every direction, THE DEVIL!!! may never get his rest...
Sign up your shipmates today for Fortress Faceoffs' 6th event and become known as the best crew in history! The departure begins Oct. 14th @ 13:00 CEST (for Europe) / Oct. 21st @ 1:00pm EDT (for the Americas) and will last around 3 days each. For more information about event rules, prizes, and more, join the Fortress Faceoffs Discord and double-donk your way out of the deep sea! The top 8 crews will be broadcasted live, so perform your best or get washed up!
