I'm  still trying to figure out why they added that second gun. But maybe I'm old in the game.

 

before you would carry 50% -50% prammo and AP and a few HE just in case and you would be fine. 

If you were lazy it would eat a bit in your earnings, and if you were careful it still made big credits.

but at some point.. I dunno. Anywayz after 2000 games and 75% winrate you get bored and buy something like the FCM.

Use 2nd gun habibi

Maybe its a habibti? But yeah second gun. First gun you'll get more rounds  fired that wont pen or bounce.

The second gun seems to work better for me. Doing more damage and no  premmo unless I am against T9's. Running adrenaline as a consumable if I need it.

For me the AP in first gun

is practically useless and 

whether it be the IS 6 or 

Defender, I have really bad luck

using HEAT.

 

So I go with the first gun

and spam apcr because I

stink with the IS 6.

 

In a recent battle with Defender

I fired 7 HEAT and hit 7 times with

only 3 penning. 

 

HEAT on these 2 tanks do

not work well for me.

 

And I was hitting the front

of tanks in the gray areas.

 

Still no pen.

2nd gun is basically a requirement with the IS-6, just to stay in the game if you're low tier.

 

If you'd asked before the purchase, I'd have suggested the Lowe as a credit earner. You can pen almost anything with standard AP ammo in the Lowe (and the T34, but the T34 earns significantly less).

I'm getting gunshy about HEAT in general. It's just not as reliable as APCR for me, if I'm going to shoot prammo. Of course, high standard AP pen would be superior in general, and I'll shoot HEAT if that's all I have, but HEAT is the "poof" round. (I don't have any HESH vehicles, so maybe there's a better example of a poof round.)

Now that HEAT works like it's supposed to.... it can't be spammed.  That's why tanks with APCR as premium ammo have an advantage (IMO).  HESH is a whole new animal.  You really have to know which tanks and where without looking..... that's a serious skill.

I bought the IS 6 based on the Bushka video of OP tanks. I know it's one guys opinion but I do like his you tube videos.  I would not have bought the Lowe because it looks goofy to me. I know that's a little weird but there it is. I also run camo on heavy tanks because I like the way it looks. I do like the second gun and am now finding I am competitive with only a couple of rounds of premmo every few games.
