Do you see it? 

It's the thing that most unicums use when they are camping behind islands.

I just barely know this mechanic.

All I see is 25fps? lol

There is this icon that looks like a mountain/terrain beside the crosshair. So basically, This will tell me that my shells will go through the island or not. This is pretty useful for mid tier American BBs despite their slow acting guns. So yeah, There's no hesitation anymore to shoot behind islands when this icon is not appearing beside the crosshair. If it's appearing, the shells will not go through the islands. You're an experience player. You should've know this mechanic for quite a long time.

And please ignore my laptop's garbage performance.

Plenty of times it will say you can fire but your shells wont clear because of leading and lag. Also it counts all guns so often you can fire a few turrets even though it says you can't. But yeah generally it's pretty good.

AFAIK, it will come up when all guns are blocked.

The icon appears when whichever group of guns your camera/bino is at is blocked by terrains. Use 'C' key to switch between gun groups. There are only 2 actually (bow, aft), and the actual 'pivot' points for the camera aren't fixed correctly on the ship you're in. 'C' key also switches between sets of torpedo tubes when you select them. The camera for torpedo sets is actually correctly placed for any ship that has torpedo tubes. Just go in game and try.

Switching between sets of torpedo tubes DOES help your torping, because the starting point of each set is different (making the trajectory of the torps different), one set may be partially blocked by terrain, but the other(s) may not be. I do use this 'trick' a bunch.

May work for guns as well, even though it's less impactful IMO.

 

Felt like I've just revealed a military secret for all my potential opponents.
