 Key Features

Key Features

  • Joshua Humphreys is a faster and more agile ship with six main battery guns and access to the “Burst Fire” alternative firing mode. In addition to a greatly increased fire rate, the alternative mode grants a temporary bonus to HE shells' damage. The ship’s strong gunnery and large HP pool allow her to effectively contest Key Areas while posing a serious threat to enemy destroyers.
  •  The torpedo armament has a high range, but not the greatest speed and damage. Joshua Humphreys stands out for her good concealment and access to the signature American Smoke Generator consumable with a smoke screen dispersion time. The remainder of her arsenal of consumables is composed of an Engine Boost and Defensive AA Fire in the same slot.
