Band of Heroes


Band of Heroes  is a Facebook game developed by Lolapps. The game is a WWII-inspired RPG where you play as a member of an elite squad of heroic soldiers striving for victory. Pull together your squad and put on a brave face as you battle your way through the war-whacked landscape. Choose your weapons wisely, and never leave a man behind!

 Theaters of War!

theater of war is a collective group of episodes in Band of Heroes. The episodes for each theater consist of a number of tasks leading to a final mission. A minimum number of tasks must be completed before completing the mission and advancing to the next episode. If all tasks are completed before completing the mission, the player is said to have ‘mastered’ the episode. This process can be repeated three times to achieve the three levels of mastery for each episode: Platoon, Company, and Battalion.

Each episode is named after the final mission.

Acquiring weapons

Common weapons can progressively be bought in the game’s depot using in-game ‘war funds’.
Uncommon weapons are available through completing tasks, missions, and collections; and through bonus drops.

Rare weapons are available only through random bonus drops.

Epic (or ‘premium’) weapons are (rarely) available through random bonus drops, and a limited supply is occasionally made available through the depot’s contraband section, where they can be purchased using ‘favors’.

There is currently only a single ‘legendary’ weapon available, the M1897 Trench Shotgun DX, which is only available for favors in the depot’s contraband section. It is the most expensive item in the game, requiring 198 favors. When the weapon was first offered this was the maximum amount of favors a player could earn in-game without paying with real money, or completing offers, for more. The addition of more missions (and consequently more favors being available) means that this is no longer the case.
