So my old personal record was in my KV-2 and was at 523 meters

But last night I was blessed by the RNG gods and landed a 551 meter shot in my Pz.IV killing a poor unsuspecting Marder 38T

 

And I guess you can say I am bragging but really it was mostly luck that landed the shell as I didn't even get a silhuett of the tank before I fired.

 

So I was wondering, what is the longest distance you guys have killed someone from with a derp gun?

Dont remember if it was longest but the funnies at least, KV-2, 1 shotted a full health ARL44 (sideshot) from H8 to E or F4 at lakeville (some 400m maybe?), before the accurancy buff patch. I know, the side of the ARL is big as a barn, but before the acc buff the KV2 could go all over the map.

I think it vas about 680 meters with Panzer IV derp. If you have your render distance square thingy(where you can see your enemies) on you minimap, you can easily position yourself to just to be able to see the enemy. There are some "diagonal" maps where you have the chance to pull off these extreme long range shots(like Karelia).

 

Btw i found the pzIV derpgun surprizingly accurate. Most of my shots were going exactly where i wanted them.

Who cares about longest my best was on Cliff from the south I was driving my KV-2 to the corner at G2 I was about H2 and killed the ELC trying to get up the hill at E7, so it was 500m ish but a moving shot. RNG loved me that day :teethhappy:

Once had a nice one with Cruiser III, shot was about 550 m, I thought it missed, but after about 4 s the news "target destroyed" came... It was no fire, shell took ages till it hit.

best i can remember off top of my head is with churchill and the 3 inch howitzer. No idea of meters but was near on half the map on sacred valley. T82 TD sat behind a rock and the shell slowly looped perfectly over and hit him for full damage lol

You got that before the accuracy buff? man I remember driving the KV-2 around a corner and shooting at a Tiger about 3 meters away and my shell going of to a side and landed miles away from anything. Playing KV-2 back then was a hell of a lot worse.

I loved that thing so much, but never ended up keeping it,I did keep my Alecto though, almost the same feeling but more fun to drive(if you ask me).Have had a lot of shells that I thought missed as the enemy gets unspotted, then start aiming for the next tank and just as I fire I get a kill...sitting there wondering how I got a kill when the guy is still alive.

OH right the other guy :veryhappy:.

 

 

Oh and I figured I would back up my claim to a 551 meter kill with the replay (and the gold comments...I had had a game where a churchill III shot full gold at me,then a game where a Hellcat shot me with gold before his KV-1S friend finished me off with another gold shell before the game I linked.

So I was ready to call anyone who used gold a noob at that moment but in hind sight I figured I was over reacting).

Just finished a game in which I connected a 591 meters shot with the pz. IV. It might sound stupid but, for me, the der gun on the pz. IV is more accurate than the 105mm on my T29, and both crews are at 100%...

 

I'll post a video on YouTube and after that I'll let you know
