WHICH GUN SHOULD I USE?…

GENERAL RULES

  1. Almost always, you’ll want to mount the HIGHEST LEVEL gun you have unlocked in your tank’s tech-tree
  2. If you have all the guns unlocked, you almost always want to use the TOP GUN (the highest tier gun available for your tank - or, if there is more than one gun of the highest tier, the one which is furthest along the tech-tree and therefore the last one to be unlocked)
  3. You typically want to choose the gun with the highest penetration

4.  If you are a heavy tank, or like to Peek-a-Boom, you might want to take a gun which does high alpha damage (often 390 hit-points per penetrating hit) over a much faster firing (or higher DPM) top gun which only does a fraction of the alpha damage (often 110)

5.  If you have the option of taking a DERP GUN (like the Hetzer or the KV-2, for instance), you probably want to take the Derp

6.  You almost always want to choose the gun with the Highest DPM (damage per minute), although, remember that machine-guns and guns which shoot High-Explosive tend to have inflated DPM values

7.  Accuracy is typically not too important when selecting a gun (high damage guns tend to be highly inaccurate, whereas, low damage guns tend to be highly accurate - while machine-guns and the T49 tend to shoot wherever the hell they want)
