Hi tankers!

So we all know what a beast the kv2 is - and we want to help that case. Equipment is going to help, although I don't know exactly what to run.

For example, in the second row and the first pair, which is enchanted gun laying drive and supercharge, I don't know which one is better. Obviously, the aim time is horrible so the drive might be good, but then again, the shell velocity is bad and so is the pen, so either is good, but I don't know which one is more needed. Can you guys help picking the equipment to enhance derping skills??

The best equipment is the red button that says "sell."

Raise your winrate to 50% in a day, or sell your overpriced Iphone to get a $10 PC.

No need to get a PC, already have one. And you can't really say "raise your WR to 50% in a day" cause you didn't say what ur WR was prior, could've been 49% or 49.95%. And if it was 49% you got no life if you raised it in a day.

edit. AND you never raised your WR to 50% in a day, lol

KV-2's best equipment, in my opinion, is run the equipment that gives better pen. HE is the primary ammo to use for most effectiveness, so do all you can to improve that. Accuracy is the secondary concern, IMO. Information from BlitzStars for my playstyle is below. Regardless of how you equip it, a pretty significant adjustment is required to play it compared to other heavy tanks. Most players either do very well, or fail horribly in this tank.

 
KV-2 6   2,159 1,683 939 64.64% 2.11 2.64 1,198 1.282 0.81 2.98 94.40% 51.44%

It's a beast when played correctly, but is bad if you don't know how to use it. But that is for a lot of tanks. Calibrated shells is what you're thinking of.

Well sell your phone and you completed the second option. How convenient. People who take my name seriously, I do not know what is happening with you. The day part was exagerated, but you had to write a whole paragraph of nothing but ranting about that one sentence.

I think people are getting confused. I mean the pair that's in the 2nd row, first slot. The first of the 2 makes aim time faster, and the other one decrease penetration loss over distance and makes shell velocity faster. But that was just an example.

do you know what a paragraph is? XD It was 2 sentences, 3 after the edit. It would have to be 4-5 to be called a 
"paragraph"

You start the most pointless arguments that makes everyone roast the hell out of you but here we go.

 

 

 

Wikipedia said at least one sentence is needed for a paragraph. And if you're going to write an entire rant that Wikipedia is not reliable, then 3-5 sentences.

you do realize anyone can edit Wiki? Look up how many sentences for a paragraph, and it says 5.

Run Calibrated shells to get your HE pen up.

run Enhance gun laying drive to get your aim time down

run vertical stabilizer to get your aim time down. 

 

Your aim time is garbage, do what you can to help it. 

Refined gun would be great, but it's going to take forever to aim in so it will never be helpful. 

Super charge would be great because your shell velocity is trash, but if you can't aim at a target, it will never matter how fast the shell gets there. 

Your reload is trash, so gun rammer would be great, but really the KV2 is rarely shooting on reload, you want your shells to penetrate so calibrated shells is the answer. 

 

pick and choose whatever other equipment to use. 

 

I run double food and top fuel. 

 

I run adrenaline and the two repair packs.  A good argument could be made for running engine boost as this tank really suffers from it's poor mobility. 

 

Don't front line this tank, stay close to hard cover so you can reload without being deleted.  Your gun will troll you, and you will miss plenty of shots even when fully aimed in.    Most of the time I feel like a KV2 is a detriment to my team, and much prefer to see them on red.  It's a hard tank to play, especially for inexperienced players who are often impatient. Most folks seem to play it for the meme of 1 shot derps.  Most folks fail, and drag their team down. 

 

Learn to switch ammo types, HE is your friend, but not always.  You will need to know how to identify those situations and use the correct ammo.
