cruiser tutorial
Cruisers primary task is to focus and destroy other cruisers. Secondary is to escort battleships and to take out destroyers.

  • Cruisers are very effective against destroyers, use HE Ammo for optimal damage.
  • Avoid battleships, do not go near them either as their secondary weapons will rip you apart, best to tag team with a battleship or other cruisers when taking on a enemy battleship.
  • Cruisers are excellent escort ships due to there anti aircraft artillery, protect your bigger ships on your team.
  • A select bunch of cruisers have torpedo tubes, use these with caution, know the range and don’t make a mistake with nuking a teammate by mistake!
