Updated: 02 May 2017.

 

Thread purpose is to inform new players about simple tricks about arty. Some are basic some are advanced.

This is my way of thinking, my way to play game. If you don't like it, make your own guide, simple :)

Some images are 4 or more years old but they are still valid.

Reason for updating this thread after 4 years is that arty got its accuracy it had years ago. Now we can do what we could back then, with lower dmg but hey, fun thing is to HIT!

All video links are set to open in new window in order to maintain this thread open.

New tips and tricks will be added from time to time so come back.

At the beginning I was usually aiming right behind the target or on it and I didn't miss a lot [ Mainly because french arty is pretty accurate ]. But! I found this technique really useful for any low-angle shots [ When the aiming circle is stretched to ellipse shape, like the one on the picture above ].

Here is one example from me.. to see how much this is useful on a map like Wide Park ^_^

I'll draw a picture later, to give my theory why is it better to aim like this in a situation like that [ When the circle is not a circle but an ellipse ;P ]

btw, great job for posting this :)

record your battles/replays, because once game gets updated, u might not be able to play them.

It is 100 % impossible for me to stun anything in my SPG's after the new v.9.18 arty missions were introduced.

No matter which arty I use, and no matter which tank I aim for, I NEVER stun anybody.

I can kill and damage, but I haven't been able to stun for even one second.

 

In the same games, I see other SPG's stun opponents right and left.

 

What do I do wrong...??

That is very strange...

 

are you playing on regular server or on sandbox?

are you playing with outdated mods? try playing without mods.

have you checked your stats in the summary about stunned targets info?

have you checked your interface settings in game?

 

also if nothing helps you should upload video as private on youtube and send ticket to wg
