How to bounce off of a T-44 and hit a hidden Ferdinand instead - an unintended trick shot.

Enjoy.

The patch after they introduced that feature, I was in my KV-2 tooned up with a mate, also in his KV-2. He was low health, so I tried to drive in front of him to block an incoming shot. Shot bounced off my stronk stalinium armour, hit him and killed him anyway. :(

We were on voice comms. He did say thanks along with a bunch of other things I couldn't possibly repeat in polite company ;). At least he saw the funny side.

Unfortunatelly it is possible to bounce and hit an ally too. Even send him to garage. Did that once. :ohmy:

Sure it is, WG itself showed it in a video from Fisherman's Bay bouncing an O-I to hit its ally.

Ah, those shots are so rare but so funny when it happens. Got "reported for cheating" twice because of it. :)

Funny part is that at first I hadn't realized what had happened. I thought crap that shot bounced, should've been a clean hit. Almost immediately after the announcement I hear the hit announcement so at first I thought that it was some bug. It was only when I looked at the hit stats that I noticed what had happened.

I wonder if the Ferdinand driver had noticed. If he had he was likely wondering how I managed to slingshot my shell around that rock :-)

I remember seing a bunch of videos where the pre-nerf T92 managed to bounce its insane AP and kill other tanks behind. Best bounce-kills were with arty, that's more unusual than other tanks.
