I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating. When facing the front of any heavily armored tank in the T49 and you cannot get around them to get a penetrating shot, shoot HE into the ground directly beneath the tank. Splashing the turret or hull will result in 150-250 damage. Splashing the ground underneath will always net you more. Granted it won’t be for 500 but it will usually get up over 300 and almost always causes some module damage.

Also if you are concerned about how many credits you will lose, the T49 isn’t the tank for you.

I hate having to share my tricks with the E-100, but you can HE at the base of the turret where the turret and the hull meet. You will usually damage the turret ring and perhaps do engine damage depending on the tank. You will also do decent damage, and I reckon that since the heavy tanks are tier 8, they would have less armor, meaning that you should be able to consistently do 400 damage to them.

E 100 turret ring isn’t really replicated in tier 8-9’s.

   The T49 also doesn’t really have HE pen to nail a lot of top decks like some TD’s. 

 

HEAT - German sides - Patton and some other soft turret Meds, will also work on nearly all vehicle rear ends of your frugal and don’t want to spend credits on HE. 

 HE pretty much everything else.  

 

I’ve put up a few T49 videos on the forum, it’s my favorite tier 8 by far.  It is however a tank you can’t wed to one playstyle - you need to read teams and maps to be able to maximize its potential.

All I know about playing the T49:

Shoot American heavys in the butt for unbelievable (and hilarious) amounts of damage. 

 

Shoot the engines of everything else (more than half your shots will set them on fire)

 

Movement is life. 


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Play like you have 1 health left. 

Stay spotted for as little as possible. 

Be patient. 

If you rush early, you will die.

You should never be head-on with a heavy.   

The T49 isn't horrible with the other gun.  Use it until you learn how to not get shot. 

Know what and where you can pen with sniper mode.  Searching for gray areas gets you killed.

Disregard all the other advice you've received.  Rush early, nobody expects it.  Don't try to HE heavies in the rear, their turret will blow off, land on your head, and you'll have dain bramage.  The best strategy is to sit on top of a hill, completely exposed, so you can see all the reds and take them out.
