Gameplay Tips

Maximizing the Main Battery Armament:

  • Utilize the 4 x 3 203 mm guns effectively. With a firing range of 18.0 km and a reload time of 10.5 s, you can maintain a steady barrage on enemy ships.
  • Take advantage of the Sigma value of 2.05σ to increase the accuracy of your shots.
  • Switch between HE and AP shells based on your target’s armor. Use HE shells for lightly armored targets and AP shells for heavily armored ones.

Torpedo Tactics:

  • The 2x4 533 mm torpedoes have a good range of 13.5 km and a damage potential of 16,767 hp, making them excellent for area denial and surprise attacks.
  • Use the torpedoes in conjunction with the Cerberus’s maneuverability to ambush larger ships.

Anti-Aircraft Defense:

  • With a strong AA suite, position yourself to support allies against aircraft, especially with the long-range 102 mm guns.

Utilizing Consumables:

  • The Crawling Smoke Generator can help you disengage or reposition without being detected.
  • Hydroacoustic Search and Defensive AA Fire provide additional protection against torpedoes and aircraft.

Mobility and Stealth:

  • maximum speed of 34.0 kts and a turning circle radius of 790 m give you the ability to dodge incoming fire and reposition quickly.
  • Use the surface detectability of 12.3 km to your advantage by staying just outside of enemy detection range, striking when the opportunity arises.
