I figured I’d start working towards the CGC and loved the Bishop but now I have hit Bert and I am ready to pull my hair out.  I keep finding myself was way to forward due to the horrid shell distance and quickly end up dead.  Any tips from experienced Bert players out there would be most appreciated.

You really have to know the terrain and keep one eye on your minimap so you know when to bug out.  It's a high reward / high risk tank.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

FV304 is the best tank in the line and a keeper. Put in a light tank crew or TD crew with 6th sense, bia, camo, etc skills.  You have to play Berth with minimap as the white detection ring is your max range and optimum shooting range as shells come doww almost vertically so keep enemy on the ring. If you get detected relocate and note that you can shoot behind houses if you shoot to the ring. If you need to extend the range drive Bert nose high to some small hill.  Equipment camonet, rammet, vents and remember to lock the hull or you lose the camo. Focus on one flank at the time, you cant shoot all so follow heavies and shoot heavies in front of them.  My Berth is home of my Snakebite crew and both are fastest tanks in the class and really fun to play.

Bert is amazing. Yes, the distance is only 500 meters, but the high arc allows for you to hit tanks hiding behind cover that no other arty can hit. Now as you've probably noticed, ole Bert doesn't really pack much of a punch, but to counter that you have an extremely high rate of fire, plus it's pretty darned accurate. So once you've tracked your prey, it's time to initiate death by a thousand cuts, so you use your accuracy and the best way to do good damage is aim for their engine/ radiator. If you are playing against higher tier tanks, like tier 8, try to resist the turret, just go for the flat area behind or in front of the turret depending on it's placement, and believe it or not, expect the odd shell to bounce off heavily armoured tanks. It's not something you'd usually expect from artillery, but it does with Bert. Hopefully in time you'll come tho love Bert as my friends and I do. He can be allot of fun, just don't take him seriously and have fun, especially if you have a friend that can duobert with you. Focus firing with Bert is an absolute hoot. So much fun.

You know when you look at the minimap and your arty is out of place in the frontlines? It's usually a Bert.

 

For an aggressive player Berts are the drive by kings. It can be played like a tier VI version of the Tusk or Turtle for lols. Platoon with a light, let the light poke out and distract the red, stay unspotted, wait, then swing by and boom when it's safe. Done well it's a beautiful thing.

Thanks for the tips.  Definitely a learning curve but getting more enjoyable.

I just got it myself.  Got a first class in my first game, then nothing but frustration since.  I don’t get the love for it.

I miss the glory days of pre-nerf Bert when you could zip around like a light tank.  I still play it every now and again, have over 4700 games in it. The key to success is paying attention to how your team deploys, knowing the enemy hot spots and relocating at any sign of detection - keep your eye on the mini map, if you sense you are being hunted, head for your strongest tanks as quickly as possible.

Hey, the HMH FV305 is a very cool arty tank to look at, though.

I play Bert and Super Bert the same.  I tag behind the heavy tanks and support them. Keeps me moving!
