This is a replay for an M46 Patton, bad game, bad team game, but the interesting bit is at 13:26.

Can't ever remember being penned by a ricochet in 45k battles, I suppose it must happen and you don't notice.

 

I remember being in a clan ages ago and trying to get ricochet pens off the side of a Maus in the training room and its surprisingly difficult even when you're trying to set it up.

I've seen shots even bounce off my own mantle and down into my own hull, as some tanks are known to do. But off a tank and into another one? Never seen it myself.

Only seen it once - from my side - I take a shot at Tank A, it ricochets and damages Tank B.

Most odd.

I killed a teammate with my JPE100 after it ricocheted off a 50B somehow. That was more than 2 years ago and I can't even remember when I last saw anything like that.

You must watch replays you'd never notice otherwise? Personally I almost never watch replays, the only thing that made me watch this one was the blatant 'WTF!' nature of the hit.

I'd feel better if it'd been my shot, just felt mega unlucky the opposite way round. :)

Glad its not just me. Thought it was pretty unusual.

that is something very rare indeed, can't remember the last time that happened to me.

 

inb4 he writes a topic mentioning the epic killshot he got from richocheting...

 

what I did get was a turret kill. Was in my T30, I think I blapped a poor soul in his russian tank, the ret blasted off like team rocket, and landed behind a low hp tank, which promtly destroyed it.

 

That was very cool, problem is I am unsure if I can even see the replay any more

 

edited richochet, my dyslexia was having none of it. hey, you missed me again folks? I had to corret another two words, because behing and tiem are totally well typed...

I'm waiting for the ricochet turret kill replay … ammo rack, turret shots off, bounces off a Type 5 …. then kills an enemy.

that would be hilarious.

 

I was able to dig out the replay of my turret kill, hope ya like it!

I am warning that the replay may not work as it is from an older version, I should've sent this to the usual folks who do rng videos and the like...

I haven't been killed that way before, but I've managed to ricochet off an enemy Tiger only to kill an allied tank quite close to him once.

There are a few of these (quite amazing) richochet hits on WG's RNG No Limits videos.

I tk'd a teammate by bouncing a shell off an enemy into his side. It was a long time ago and I was mortified.If it happened now I'd You Tube it.

Of course I had some ricochets in 25k games...

 

I remember one time when I shot at an O-Ni only to kill an unspotted enemy that was totally not anywhere near my line of fire. I was like huh  ?

 

Another time I was in my VK 100.01 P, ricochet of enemy shell killed another tank that was close to me.

 

Had also a few cases of very lucky enemy shots which for example ricocheted on the sloped hull and then penned the underside of the turret ...  :-/
