Girls’ Frontline is a mobile game developed and published by Mica Team. It is available on Android and iOS.
Over the course of the game, players defeat enemies by collecting and training tactical girls (Tactical Dolls).
The gameplay of GF can be roughly divided into development and combat. Every battle consumes resources (manpower, ammunition, rations and spare parts). Although players have a small amount of ambient resource income, it is not sufficient to meet the needs of sustained combat. As such, players need to balance their resources between battle and support. In addition, every tactical girl is Level 1 when obtained, and each will require training and enhancement to become stronger.
In Girls Frontline, players have access to four categories of resources:
|Manpower (人力): ambient gain rate of three per three minutes||Ammunition (弹药): ambient gain rate of three per three minutes|
|Rations (口粮): ambient gain rate of three per three minutes||Spare Parts (零件): ambient gain rate of one per three minutes|
The amount of resources you have is displayed at the upper-right hand side of the screen.
Resources are consumed in the following ways:
- Repairing T-Dolls will consume manpower and spare parts.
- Deploying echelons to a map will consume manpower.
- Each echelon deployed to a map will consume rations at the beginning of every turn.
- Each time an echelon fights a battle on a map, it consumes rations and ammunition at the end of the battle.
- Starting an Independent Operation will consume all four kinds of resources.
- Construction of either T-Dolls or equipment will consume all four kinds of resources.
The Main Screen
See here for more information.
The battle portion consists of SLG and 2D act elements. Players create squads of tactical girls to fight battles.
There are different types of Tactical Dolls (T-Dolls for short), each with their own usage. However, each T-Doll has their own stats, buffs, and actives that makes them unique to others of the same type.
Sub-machine Guns have high evasion and health but little accuracy. They attack enemies in the frontline and are good for soaking damage due to having above-average health and evasion. They provide buffs to Assault Rifles (AR).
Sniper Rifles have the highest firepower but the low RoF (rate of fire). They'll attack enemies in the backline. Due to their poor evasion stat, it is wise to put them in the back lines. They provide buffs to HGs, which boost the chances of their skills triggering.
Machine Guns are much like RFs in terms of DPS. They target enemies closest to them, and have a very high rate of fire. However, they have a "cool-down period" where they must reload after firing some number of bullets. They provide buffs to SGs.
We have designed several scenarios for the game. In each episode of scenarios, the battle map is different, and so called “Path points” are linked on maps. Squads of tactical girls and enemies moving on these path points, and acquiring victory by capture opponent’s HQ(Path points include in HQs, Airports, Random event points, Radar, regular points, etc.).
The two forces are acting by turns. For every turn, the player has several ‘Action Points’, which depends on the amount of Airport the player captured and Squads on the battlefield that player owned. HQ provides 1 AP as well. Squads’ movement and new squad’s settlement would consume APs.
Every enemy squad owns a single AP in one turn. When the two forces face each other on a same path point, the fight begins.
When a battle begins, the player’s squad appears on the left side of the screen, and the enemy appears on the right. The two squads approach each other, and start shooting when once they are in range. Every character in each squad has hit points, and the player wins when the enemy squad is eliminated. The player will lose if all characters in the squad either die or are ordered to retreat, or if any enemy makes it to the leftmost edge of the screen.
The player is able to press the screen to move his squad members in a 3*3 table in order to make tactical adjustments such as pulling a wounded character out of the line of fire or blocking the enemy advance. When the battle ends, the game goes back to the battle map, and the losing side is eliminated from the Path Point.
Every T-Doll carries some amount of rations and ammunition. A fully supplied T-Doll carries 10 units of rations and 5 units of ammunition. The amount of rations and ammunition carried by the T-Dolls in a squad is displayed on the map. If the T-Dolls in the squad carry differing quantities of supplies, the amount of ammunition and rations carried by the T-Doll with the least of each will be displayed.
Every T-Doll consumes 1 unit of rations at the end of each turn. In addition, each fight that a T-Doll participates in will consume both 1 unit of both rations and ammunition. This means no T-Doll will able to take part in more than 5 fights without resupply.
A T-Doll that is out of rations or ammunition can still make movements on the battle map, but once its squad becomes involved in a fight, the T-Doll will be unable to fire back - if an entire squad is out of rations or ammunition, the player should choose to retreat to avoid suffering damage without being able to fight back.
Repair and Resupply
Like any real military unit, T-doll echelons need to be resupplied regularly in order to fight, thus makes knowing how to resupply a vital skill. By default, echelons will automatically resupply when standing on a captured helipad. However, players can (and are usually recommended to) disable "Auto-resupply" option in Settings and do manual resupply instead. To do this, follow these steps:
- Relocate your echelon to HQ or a captured helipad
- Double tap on the said echelon. The Resupply menu will pop up, as shown in this picture.
- Follow the instructions in the picture.

Due to the PRC laws, after 1.030 patch, many T-dolls' CGs (Damaged and Normal CGs) had their sensitive parts censored. However, many people weren't pleased with the new update and therefore, this section is used to show how to remove the censor and get the old CGs back.
Please note: check carefully which set of instructions to follow before proceeding.
In order for this to work you will need a "rooted" phone or an emulator in "rooted" mode.
- Step 1: Navigate to the file directory: /data/data/com.digitalsky.girlsfrontline.cn(add .bili if you are using bilibili client)/shared_prefs/
- Step 2: Open the file: com.digitalsky.girlsfrontline.cn(.bili).xml, find the line: <int name="Normal" and change the value from "0" to "1" then close the file.
- Step 3: Go to File Properties, Permission tab, tick only the "R" section.
- Step 4: Reopen the game, wait for it to download the package and enjoy.
Much like on Android you will need to jailbreak your phone or use an emulator with "jailbreak mode" on.
- Step 1->3: Follow the direction in the images.
- Step 4: Open the file: com.digitalsky.girlsfrontline.cn.plist
- Step 5: Click "Edit", then between the "<integer>" and "</integer>", change 0 to 1.
- Step 6->7: Open the File Properties and set Permission to "Read".
- Step 8: Open the game, wait for it to download the package and enjoy.
The EN client cannot download the decensored files but you can replace them manually by downloading them using the links below and copying them to the correct directory.
Because this process is manual, any update which adds new T-Dolls will not automatically becomes decensored, so new files will be downloaded. The download links will be updated when they are available.
This will not get you banned. Mica has stated several times indirectly (because they'd get in trouble if they endorsed an uncensor patch). You will only be banned for using tools that affect your gameplay.
EN on Android
Does not require root.
- Step 1: Download and extract patch files. (Updated 2018-06-12)
- Step 2: Navigate to Android\data\com.sunborn.girlsfrontline.en\files\Android.
- For rooted device it will be sdcard\Android\data\com.sunborn.girlsfrontline.en\files\Android.
- Step 3: Copy and replace files in this location with the patch files. Done.
If you want to remove the decensor, delete the files in that location and the game will automatically download the original files on startup.
It is also possible to choose which tdolls you would like uncensored as well by only replacing files corresponding to those tdolls.
EN on iOS
Requires jailbreak to access /var/ folder. May be possible without jailbreak using iFile or Filza.
- Step 1: Download and extract patch files. (Updated 2018-06-17)
- All files: Download
- Step 2: Navigate to /var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/396D38D0-03C8-4F41-BBFE-36F24AF6631C/Documents/Iphone.
- (This is the location for iOS 10.3.2. It may be different for other versions)
- If you cannot locate the files, search for the folder that contains "IosResConfigData.txt".
- Step 3: Copy and replace files in this location with the patch files. Done.
