The Girls' Frontline Q&A has revealed that the next major Story Event, Continuum Turbulence, will be released on GFL EN in the first half of 2020. What's next in store for Commanders after the wild ride that is Singularity? This page will help you find out. 

Note: The information in this guide may be subject to change when Continuum Turbulence releases on the Global Girls' Frontline server, given that the last three Story events have all used slightly differing mechanics from their CN version. 


2/18 update: Added the Continuum Turbulence Event Guides.

2/3 update: Added HibachiMan's video Continuum Turbulence Preparation Guide.

12/28 update: Revised the Echelon requirements for CT Chapter 3 story after a budget clear was discovered.

Basic Requirements

For the story campaign portion, Commanders with several endgame echelons at Level 90, x5 Dummy Linked will make it through most of the event.

  • A strong ARSMG echelon with Night Battle Equipment and an RFHG echelon to handle armored foes will be sufficient to clear up to Chapter 2, which will unlock the Ranking map. 
    • Fully equipping your teams with proper MAX-calibrated and enhanced 5★ Equipment is highly recommended. 
  • Chapter 3 is far more difficult, with one map requiring up to 4 Combat Echelons that can handle heavily armored new enemy units at night. 
    • Players without 4 full Combat Echelons can clear the aforementioned map with 2 Dummy Echelons, 1x RFHG and 1x Anti-Typhon team (either Contender Gunboat or M4A1 Mod + 2MG + 2HG).

Continuum Turbulence also brings with it a new type of player-controlled unit called Heavy Ordnance Corps or HOCs for short. Additional information about HOCs will be released shortly, so stay tuned!
