I've been perpetually stuck in the 74–75% range on the KV-2, regardless of how well I do. Should I use the 300 alpha gun instead of the glorious derp?

Ive been around 90-94% on mine for awhile and I use the derp gun, Havnt been perusing the 3rd mark but I think the derp gun is the way to go

It's a tank many use in a fail platoon,  you might need to do the same to get the dmg required.

I've definitely seen some people say they got more reliable damage with the 107mm maybe give it a go.

This. While the derp may be amusing, for consistent damage the ZiS-6 is the way to go.

Derp into the tracks....2nd and 3rd MOEs rely heavily on assisted damage...since KV-2 ain’t gonna spot too well, a 152mm round will easily track a tank and also be enough to do direct splash damage on top of the tracking the enemy. Then it’s up to your allies to get track assist damage for you!

Have you tried running Combat Rations?  The boosts to your reload and gun handling can really help up your DPM

I was able to get to 90% with the derp before swapping guns. Running the 107mm and spamming premium ammo is by far an easier way to get marks.

 

If you really want marks just run full APCR with the 107mm, it's easy with that gun.

^ you have to play with a tier 7. Tier 6 top tier there is not enough damage to go around unless your team magically falls apart in the perfect way

I had to switch to the 107 to 3 Mark it, the dpm outways the derp.

 

Although i felt shame for running the 107.


I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

Learn which tanks you can/should fire premium ammo at and which tanks and where you can shoot HE for full damage.  Don't waste a premium shell on a tank that you can HE for full health or that you have a low chance of penetrating.  You can about break even in silver with 10 premium shells if you are hitting your shots.  Don't waste a shell on a low hp tank if you can get a full amount of damage from another tank.  Go with a group but not too big of a group as much as possible.

AP kills faster when you know your enemy.

I have been bouncing between 78% and 80% forever it feels. I have stopped trying to get the 2nd mark. If it happens it happens.

Sacrifice more political dissidents?

What ever tactic you use is legit, but if the emey does it then its a cheap unfair OP noob tactic.

Load some premium AP and learn which targets to shoot it at. I am in a similar position to you and am stuck at around 75%, but I've found using AP helps. Some people say to use the 107 to mark it then switch back to the 152 after getting your marks.

Like John said, fail platoon and track tier 9 and 10 tanks.  Get 5k assist damage, plus your splash damage.  Super easy, barely an inconvenience.  Also scummy AF, but it's set up that way so abuse that if you want easy marks.
