Your secondary batteries will only fire at ships in close range, around 5km away from you. They'll do this automatically, and if you look carefully, you can see the pale-yellow tracers that are different from the brighter orange of your main guns. They also fire individually, not in salvoes.

 

And ships vanishing at close range (ehhh, 50m seems a bit *too* close for WoWS) means that a destroyer just activated it's smoke generator.

Maybe he's running on low graphics settings and has "render small objects" turned off. I've been told that you can't see AA guns and smaller secondary cannons firing if that's turned off.

The smoke screen is a bit 'iffy' at the moment.

Ships can vanish into it even if they are only a kilometre or two away. Then they appear even closer to you and you have no chance to react before they hit you.

Ah ok, so it's not perfect yet.

Sometimes destroyers will be firing at me from <1km away and then they'll just disappear into thin air. Followed by a salvo of torpedos haha

Next time you play a game and have enemy ships within 4km of you on your port or starboard sides, ctrl-click on them. After the battle, look at your after action report and see if your secondary batteries have fired any shells (it'll be listed there, under your primary weapon damage). If there's no shots fired at all listed in the after action report and you're sure there were enemy ships close to you, file a bug report. Might also help to include a replay, too.
