rammed a teammate and pushed him to take all the torps, he will be forever be remembered~ o7

 

@topic: nope, you can't shoot them.. or rather, they don't explode when shot at~

You will be remembered (by him) as well for letting him take the shot fro you. :teethhappy:

I was thinking interceptors/fighters to actually be able to do that but I don't know if the secondary batteries can go down low enough to shoot water.

Tried, fail, plus side, found that if you get within X distance from when they drop, they are null'ified (as in do 0 damage); all though the AI still does damage.

Pretty sure that Torpedoes are classed the same as shells, i.e. there just a model that flies through the arena, they don't have hp or a hit box, just a collision model for when they hit a ship. 

 

Or something like that lololol

I remember seeing that on the commander skills, must be secondary armament then.

you can intercept a torpedo with a DD (hull) - it will hurt but it will work ;)

It would be cool if there was a chance for anti-torp secondaries to take out one or two from a spread before they hit you. The tooltip for one of the skills mentions the existence of anti-torp weapons.

Historically, secondary armaments could be used as extreme last-ditch defenses against torpedoes.

 

In-game, the tooltip is a mistranslation. It's supposed to read anti-torpedo boat (or possible anti-torpedo boat destroyer). The secondary armaments don't target torpedoes. At all.

I know they don't target torps as yet. Didn't know the tooltip was a mistranslation though. Was just saying that if ships did have weapons that could be used as a last resort against torps then it would be nice if they did that ingame.
