Gneisenau and scharnhorst secondaries are not as good as Bismarck secondaries. First is the range, second is the not that many to have similar effect as Bismarck secondaries at respective maximum secondary range.

 

I heard IFHE is not worth for Bismarck, but I never try it. 

 

Yeah, IFHE is not worth for BB.

Is it safe to say Gnisenau/sharnhorst can be configured like a Bismark? Im new to german BBs and i intend to get to tier 8 aswell.

 

Still have doubt grinding German BB scrubs? Here some simple tips to clear ur mind.

 

"If you want to stay back of the fleet & snipe like a scrub; the Japanese are better offering.

 

But if you only care about making tons of credit & ruining people's day - look no further....."

Of course when when u play german BB, you always...... & always being notice by ur enemy, because they know that you're badass. 

And prepare urself for something like.....

Taking back caps by ur own, finally got kraken & die after at final moment of the game then lose

or

since ur the badass, the metal fishes always after you.

So far the German BB line I play, all of them are awesome by its own, especially when u got tier 6 & above BB line.

Schanhorst secondaries gun got better range than Tirpitz does, but of course Bismark secondaries are freaking awesome & satisfying (with AFT + Manual secondaries build). Most of my German BB line build were secondaries build since I'm more to aggressive playstyle & brawling, plus I don't like become snipers.

But for tier 9 FDG, a bit feels kinda mute compare to Bismark tier 8.:hmm:

Still try to adapt her while farming to get GK

I get aiming on all of my Germany BBs cause main guns still the damage maker, other hand secondary which firing HE can't pen ships with thick armor and it will be shattered causing no damage. Otherwise, I'll get IFHE for my german captain. Here's the build I'm following

Yes only for Gneisenau ? Forgot which one has bigger secondaries. Add IFHE, you got smoll GK at tier 7.

 

Secondaries build for Bismarck is not as good as i thought.

GK is very accurate even if you're using secondaries mod, unlike Bismarck. Just be sure you're using 406mm gun not 420mm one.

Faster shell, which make it easier to aim (less time for enemy to react)

I think in current patch ships don't get much closer. I mean DDs. So now you can actually rethink.

The Scharnhorst is a more natural "brawler" compared with her sister ship (functioning best in mid ranges hunting cruisers and a fast 20s reload), but a manly secondaries build would definitely work quite well with it.

 

It's a preview of what you will get with the Bismarck - which basically spews secondary volleys like an angry volcano constantly erupting jets of hot magma with the right modules and captain skills.

I did a secondary build on my Gneisenau and it worked very nicely, although you need at least a 14 point captain to make it work, since you need BFT, AFT and manual secondaries.
