After giving up the first time the Sharpshooter contract was available I decided to give it another try the second time it came out. With help from people on this forum I got pass the stage that stopped me the first time (stage 5 get two High Caliber medals in a light tank) by using my Rover and T37. Then it was just a matter of grinding out a bunch of XP.. Thanks to all who gave me positive feedback on how to get pass stage 5.

Nice one, i'll start that contract next time if there is nothing else to do in game.

 

After finishing The Machine contract last weekend, it's great to not be grinding anything at the moment.

It will be mine too, not quite as soon as it'll be yours though lol.

 

I'm not a million miles away from getting the 7th stage done, I'm around half way through.

Congrats.

For me - maybe the next time (the next year) I’ll try to get it (as the last available contract) if they change the contract (especially Stage 5 with the HC’s in light tank).

Up until then the Sharpshooter will for sure become the one and only TT (or TT-alike) tank in the whole game (so except some Premiums of course) that I still don’t own.

I can't be bothered while they haven't fixed the tank requirements.

 

I don't want to play lights, and shouldn't have to play anything French to get the sharpshooter. 

 

The requirements should be US/UK/German Heavies and mediums. Not French lights.

I really want this tank, but i'm in the middle of the machine contract. so i'll have to wait until next release.

I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol, and cheap women. The other half I wasted -  W.C. Fields

I tried for a few battles to get a high caliber in some of the light tanks I have and got close but no luck. T

 

t37 suggestion is the most reasonable and I got the two high calibers shortly after rebuying that tank. For a few reasons.

Congratulations, I am about to give up on it for the second time. I have followed all the tips, tricks, and suggestions on the forum but those pesky HC’s just won’t come. Kudos to you guys pushing through and getting it!

last ditch attempt is to intentionally play during low times on the opposite server. You may be able to get into a 7vs7 match with a t37 and have a better chance to high caliber.

I have also tried this and came seriously close multiple times. I can only assume that I didn’t meet the 20% of enemy teams damage pool requirements having achieved every other. I am just getting to bent out of shape over it and it is killing my fun zone. I know it’s best to just move on. Maybe next time when I am fresh and motivated. :playing:

I found getting 2 Dualist medals IN A LIGHT TANK, a lot more difficult :(

Moments where i had a ram-kill option, my auto-instinct made me avoid that and handbrake the shjit out of my tank to follow up with the killshot.

Only to realize aftherwards that this is not the way to get that medal !

Then when you take a hit so you can kill the red, ended up with a green taking the kill.

It's like being a Light weight boxer against a Heavy weight boxer, you need to receive 1 punch and then you need to knock him out, and do it again :(

I passed it, but boy did i found that frustrating !

I am on the Stage 5 myself. If I cannot get it in the next 10 days, it leaves me no choice but to abandon. Yesterday, I played 3 games with my T37 and all three one shot by Tier 8 Arty. 

 

Any special tips on what to do with the T37 - hang back? not spot (which is what a light is supposed to do etc.) or camp base till mid game? What equipment, crew skills? food? Peeps who have already done it, help out a fellow forumer.

Get on the Euro server late at night, after 9 PM US Central time...Matchmaking may take longer, but MUCH easier to get a high caliber in a 7 vs. 7 battle...


Yousa welcome!

Hehe - Very first game, came really close 7v7, But the thunderbolt who was capping edged me out - all tanks went to him and got destroyed while I was busy chasing them all over the map.

 

It seems to be the way to go. Will keep trying. Thanks for the tip. :honoring:
