I highly advise you don’t waste your time on the upgraded gun. 

 

Let’s see what we are talking about first.

 

Gun Scourge
Gun Shellthrower

Gun Scourge is the already unlocked an standard gun, and Gun Shellthrower is the unlockable  12.8k xp gun. So why do I say to use the “Stock” gun? 

 

Let’s compare 4 things. DPM, Alpha, Pen, and Gun Depression. 

•The Scourge has 47 less DPM

•20mm better standard pen

•25mm better premium pen

•13mm better HE pen. 

(The tank is running rammer not calibrated). 

•The scourge has 140 less alpha damage.

•The Scourge give the Scavenger +2° of Gun Depression (8°;)

 

So essentially you will be trading pen, gun handling, and gun depression on a tank that relies on the use of its turret and staying hull down, for an alpha boost and RoF nerf that gives you 47 more DPM. 

 

This is 100% just my opinion. I get it has novelty for its Alpha, but the tank is really good with the first gun.

I’ve used both and agree with you. I’ve had more success with the “stock” gun. YMMV, though.

Facts: no one plays Tier 5 competitively. I couldn't care less if I would do better with the stock gun, imma mount that derp gun and run around like a madman.

The 0,00075km gun is fun too, so there's that.

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

This is 100% just my opinion. I get it has novelty for its Alpha, but the tank is really good with the first gun.

 

 

 

So... if I play with the stock gun - which you imply is the most fun -- won't I be automatically earning what I need to unlock the upper gun?

 

Then I get the upper gun to try it out - -and according to you, I just wasted all my time earning enough exp to unlock it.   I guess playing this tank at all is a waste of time then - using your logic that is.

 

 

Peace-

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I think you will find this consistent with the new meta they are creating for lower tiers. There will be a penalty for lack of a better word for using HE.
