What he said. I admittedly hadn't played it in forever til I saw the Dreadnought deal today. So I played it for a few games to try and sell myself out of spending gold. I had some good but nothing special games. Then when I was on my "last game", I nailed a Tiger I from across the pass on Karelia and blew his turret off for a little over 1000 damage. It put a big dumb smile on face. Now Dreadnought is even more tempting, ugh...

With the Dreadnought you mostly want to fire AP and HEAT, but it's still worth keeping a decent supply of HE on hand as well. The AP is generally the best ammo to use on tier V, VI, and VII tanks, HEAT is better against well armored tier VII tanks and many higher tier tanks (and is better for leading targets since it has a better shell velocity), and its HE shells are very useful for finishing off an enemy on less than 300 health (less than 200 if they have thick armor) and is great as decimating tanks without armor (namely TDs like those in the Borsig line).

What Fusion said.

 

And I can add to that that this is one of the tanks I struggle most in deciding ammo type throughout a battle.

All three are highly viable options, but for different reasons and situations, and with a reload of ~18 sec it makes it even  harder to predict what to load.

My simple guideline:

Top tier: mostly AP, but HE could also work since there are a lot of tanks without armor.

Bottom tier: HEAT mostly, but HE when the armor is too thick.

Middle tier: Usually start with AP or HEAT, depending on where I go, and then see what I  will encounter through the battle.

 

My loadout is pretty much same amount of all.

If this is Russian bias, I have no idea what is.


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

I bought it last night. Haven't played it yet though. Thanks for the ammo explanation. I wasn't sure what was best for that tank either, but now I am clear on it.

Bought it last night, played 11 games and its a blast. Loaded all HE and only half aimed at everything. Didnt aim for weak points, didnt even focus on what tank I was up against, just spammed HE at everything. Tanks were exploding left and right with single shots. Complete and utter mindless fun. Im a mediocre player but managed to get a Mastery Badge within a few games, no strategy, nothing, just playing like a drunken 5 year old. Way too much fun for the price.

 

Tank is OP if I can Ace it within 11 games without even trying. Needs some nerfing. In the meantime, when Im burnt out on playing the game and need some mindless fun that makes some silver itll be my go to.

WG, I was just thinking. You folks need to do a"Dreadnought Week" once a year. Offer it for 50% off all week and do a week of ranked battles with Dreadnoughts only. Doesnt even need to be ranked but just a Dreadnought only sub game mode with all maps available. Youll sell a ton of them. Or even better, a Dreadnought Battle Royale week. Now that would be some serious entertainment.

Normally it wouldn't bother me but those Vouchers are the reason i'm short (I have 3,345 Gold), Their is the option of a Garage Slot which would take it to 3,400 with 50% Off which i would be Under anyway but i'm going to see what i can get in Trade In, or try and save my Gold (I have like 40 Days Free Premium left so i can get more from Summer Charlie) for the next time it either becomes a Personal Offer or Deal of the Week.

 

I'll see what Trade In holds and if i see nothing of value, i'll probably keep saving :)

 

And thats how they get ya. Its like crack, you always need just a little bit more to get your fix.

First game; 4.5k dmg and five kills and 1st class. It's a bit silly, but when those shots land, they land

Oh my but this tank is hilarious. 

RNG will troll though. Hit an Absolution with HEAT it went directly into the front of his track and bounced.  I didn't think HEAT bounced but I've had it happen a few times in other tanks.

Also this thing likes to burst into flames. I've caught fire now twice through the front of the tank. 


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

I'm finding the AP more consistent as long as you're not bottom tier. The HE won't pen much over tier VII, so it's only good for splash damage on heavily armored tanks. The HEAT is great if you have a shot at a flat spot, but I've found it gets eaten up by tracks a lot. The AP is good for 600-700 dmg every shot on 80% of the tanks it faces.

In a KV-2? No one.

 

In a Dreadnought? Lots.  It has enough penetration to knock holes in anything it sees besides Heavy tank fronts and enough damage to turn a lot of them inside out in one or two hits.

I thought they had the same gun. That's why I never got one because I already had the KV2
