More as a sniper/2nd line tank Armour is meh, so don't rely on it. It has a big gun, so peek-a-boom stuff and hide while you reload. As for the teams, such is the game right now. Just keep trying. o7

Camo net and the 100mm gun. Don't use the 122mm. The reload isn't worth the alpha. Keep the gun singing and you'll do good. Similar playstyle to the jpanzer IV just a bit slower with better armor. You Rush forward, you die.

Mobile boomstick with the 122mm on the second line, platoon when possible, mainly with fairly mobile heavies (Kuro is a great choice), extreme vertical angling, the sides are trash, don't aim for too long but still always wait for aim.

Doing that gives you a fun tank that prints credits.


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

This tank is amazing!!! The top gun has so much stopping power. You have to be a true td for first part of match. Once reds are weaker then you can go in for the kill. It's one of my fav tds.

I have to disagree.  The 122mm is the gun you need. It's a tank destroyer who depends on its alpha. If you get the faster reload then you have to expose yourself more and that leaves you open to getting shot more. Plus with the way teams are you want to be able to make the biggest impact w each shot.

SU-100 was my first love even though it was my second tier 6, I personally enjoyed it's combination of mobility and fire power, I often followed the medium tanks and fired and hid while my mediums had the reload to cover me. Snipe if you can (good luck with the flat maps)

It's not a front line TD. I used mine as a sniper. THat was in the days of the old MM. I'd rather hit someone for 2-3 shots at 200hp vs. 1 shot at 400 and run the risk of the gun trolling me then having to wait for the glacial reload. I started with the 122mm and when I switched I did much better.

122, roll with the meds (since autoloaders or high RoF tanks are in vogue) and support them with the alpha.

 

Don't camp with Russian accuracy.

Man I love the SU-100. It's probably my favorite tier 6 TD if not my favorite TD in general. Peak-a-boom, wiggle if you are in the open (75mm of sloped armor can bounce a lot), stay behind the front line but not too far behind. Mobility is quite good as well. 400 alpha will 2-4 shot most tanks you face.

Older post but I agree, the Su-100 was a great TD. Fast, with the big derp gun lets you maneuver quick and peek and hide very well. You can snipe with it good, you can maneuver and slugfest with it good with teammates. And very fast and accurate for a big gun, much better than the kv1s gun which has much longer reload. Your faster also. But get in there and shoot, you dont' want to just be scared in it, its fast enough to maneuver well and hit and run when you need it with a very big gun that reloads quick. Fun, functional, and good all around in every department. I remember a great battle was just me left, and 2 enemy tanks. a KV1s and a td. Still had good health so they both were on me, I took the hit from the kv1s and destroyed the td, both me and the kv1s were almost dead 1 more shot. I mistimed the reload of the kv1s and went into the open to blast him. He shot first and bounced off me, I wasn't even angled good but was just a bad bounce and he quickly died. He was mad later and I agreed, but its WG mechanics.. was grey 100% to him from mostly a side shot ( I was turning a corner to catch him) and bounce! lucky me. he's the guy in the 2nd pic. As you can see, was really only 2 people in that match fighting, rest of the teams just the normal trash, just me and him really.

I really disliked the SU-100 UNTIL I got the 122. Now I see the beauty of this killing machine. I took out an SU-152 and a Jackson both hiding around a corner. Wait for them to come out and ricochet off of my angled front plate and then move around the corner, take a shot and quickly duck back behind the corner. Lather rinse repeat until both were smoking and I gave up maybe 200 HP. If I get flanked I’m toast but if they are in front of me they are scrap.

ppl are saying the 122 has a ridiculous reload and stuff its the same as the IS3 which is tier 8 and has the same alpha.......

 

I like to platoon mine with a medium and crush the medium flank with my alpha while he covers me during reloads.


WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

I had no trouble with that tank just stay back for a bit take shots when you can and move in around the middle or the end of the battle, for me I’m having trouble adjusting to the 152

How to SU-100:

  1. Use 100mm.
  2. Load healthy dose of overpowered Soviet HE
  3. Load game, use camo net, and proceed to camp in a favorable sniping position with clear firing lines.
  4. Rape enemy team until they proceed to call you a hacker for having such a fast reload on such a powerful gun while you easily exceed 1,500 damage every game.
