Hi all.

Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament: secondary guns only open fire at targets designated by the player.

So, how do I select ( and deselect ?) a target.

Thank you.

 

ps -with the upgrade my screen has changed.  The print seems to be larger

press CTRL and  you'll see your mouse courser, just click the poor guy u wanna target and let her rip

 

Hi

Do the secondarys / AA then auto fire (solely at the designated target) or is clicking required ?

ps sometimes I am so focused on a ship that I dont even know a DD is near me until I head the secondarys fire (sad lol)

If you don't Ctrl+Click on enemy ship, your secondaries will auto shoot at a target that is closest to the turret. Also you do not receive the buff from the captain skill.

Use Ctrl+Click, known as Focus fire / Designate target, will fire all the secondaries to that ship only. And captain skill will be in effect.

Same as AA guns

 

So, they do fire even you do not select a preferred target.

Ohh  -I think I have tried to shoot at aircraft before BUT  the sights didnt lock on. Is there a trick? Or  - do you just need to closely aim your reticle (spell) at the planes ?

There is no need to bother. All u need to do is ctrl + click the target and you will get a boost in whatever non-primary armament is firing at its target, and go about doing other stuff like shooting at stuff.

 

Damage/accuracy boost is automatically done for you on the poor guy

Yes, aim carefully on the squadron. It happened to me too

No, if the Manual Secondaries skill was taken the secondaries doesn't shoot automatically at the ship in range.. It needs to be designated at the ship before it can open fire..
