Looks like the autoloader on this tank has been nerfed to valueas below T71, which is now a whole tier lower.

But do you think this gun on M41 has any value? I played only one game in Bulldog after the patch (with the new 6 shell autoloader), it was Karelia defence, and scored 2200 dmg. So is QuickyBaby missing something in his devastating review? Maybe the magazine + mobility, still equals good balance?

The autoloader definitely needed a nerf, but WG overdid it. In it's current form it's really terrible. 1.2k DPM against 1.6k on the BatChat 12t?

The single-shot is still as good as it used to be. But they did butcher the autoloader.

Playing with the single shot, the Bulldog is now slightly buffed and nothing more.

What kind of sense does that make to have a worse autoloader in the tier 8 Bulldog compared to the tier 7 T71 ? It's just crazy.

I played this game today.  Feel free to comment, but please be kind.  I had a 56% win rate with the Bulldog before the update to 9.18.  I feer I won't be able to keep it though.  Greetz.

I think the single shot alpha was actually buffed and is definitely the way to go today.

The thing that bugs me though are the xp requirements to elite this thing. Once you got all modules unlocked you still need over 400k to elite it. 400k on tier 8, you gotta be kidding me!

There are bunch of tier X tanks with lower requirements than the E1 and even T49 is in that tier X region.

After 9.18 update, I stopped using "autoloader" cannon.


I find out that "single" shot cannon is more effective and useful.

M41 Walker Bulldog is now complete rubbish. The autoloader is bad, and you lose 2 degrees of gun depression, so it's not worth it. The single shot gun is better, but still crap. 170 damage for 4,8 second reload is not worth it. The tank is good, but the guns aren't.

was already boring with the single shot (never played the autoloader), tank is fine, no drawbacks, an easy tank to play with...no autoloader reload timer like the amx, way more depression than the lttb...it's easiest t8 scout to play with...

i d rather play the german M41 tho for the 90mm.

m41 was a bit too good maybe, but it was also easy to take them out effectively. I felt like a little nerf was indeed reasonable, but nowadays it is a total shitty tank. It was my favourite tank but when it moved to T8, i sold it directly. It sucked in everything and got outclassed by all other tier 8's.

Total shame what they did to to my favourite tank.

Oh my god. I just bought it for the first time. It's stock and it takes me 5 battles a day to win 1 on it. We are not liking each other.

It's complete garbage now. It's a huge paper tank that does 170 damage per shot with almost 5 seconds reload. For a tier 8 tank that's a sad joke. And to top it all off the gun handling is bad and the accuracy horrendous. Because 170 alpha damage and terrible DPM weren't already bad enough.


The T71 a tier below is a much better tank now and the premium Blackdog is on a completely different level.

I quite like it, I barely got the chance to play it before the nerf and now it's sitting at a 56% wr for me. The single shot is pretty good, it's not a gun you use to out-DPM everything, more like a harrassing gun. The tank in itself is a pretty solid scout, waaaay better than the 12T. The only drawback I can think of is its size

Just unlocked and bought it this weekend with discount, but as I bought other tanks I unlocked earlier I dont have any free xp left so am playing it stock :-( Was wondering which gun to go for, but reading your posts I am leaning towards the single shot one.


 I have a decent crew (2 out of the 4 crew are the females you get after completing missions), but being stock I try to stay away from engagements and just try the harassing shot or two. Other than that I just try to spot, but most T8-10 meds have equal or better viewrange, so struggling to find my role on the battlefield in T10 games...


So what equipment do you guys run on it - vents, binocs and ...?

Play the single shot, almost twice the DPM as the autoloader.


Biggest problem for me is its HUGE size compared to many other lights, with everything my camo is only at 36% and that's with a camo net. You can't use half the small bushes for passive spotting as the huge profile makes you very easy to spot a mile away.

I feel like the tank had it for being T7 but at new T8 position it has lost a bit with so many high tier LTs in the game now. Mainly from extending the lines to T10 and make it have so many good LTs above it (twice the numbers).

I always used the single shot gun but went from 56% before patch to 52% after it, and that is without sixth sense! Now I have sixth sense but can't seem to make it work still, only grind it for T49 right now instead of playing it for being fun...

Just started playing this again.


good grief what is this thing. Looks like a Bulldog but plays like an emasculated bulldog. The gun is anemic.  


It to big to bush scout. Too big to ridge surf spot. Every tank you meet sees you as cheap exp. M41 is out dpm or out alfa by everything.


as part of the rebalnce it should have got an autoloader with a smaller clip. The original clip was rediculous.


to those grinding the T49 it is totally worth it.
