I currently have a Wickes. Can someone please tell me the range of torpedos in these destroyers? I'm having a hard time torpedoing. :(

*Cough* Hold ctrl while in battle and put your mouse icon on the Torpedo option and hold it there for for enough time for you to read it....

You might also want to prioritise the usage of guns.

Remember: "Shoot and shoot and shoot till you drop!"

most of the USN DD have small range from 4.5 up to 6km until about tier 8 then they go up to about 16km at tier 10

IJN have longer rangers from about 6 up to 10 till about 8 then increases to about 20km at tier 10


 

I think not 100% sure

IJN:

Tier 2~5 Destroyer's torpedo range & reload:

5km & 30 seconds shortest

7km & 45 seconds average

10km & 60 seconds longest.

 

Tier 6~10 Destroyer's torpedo range & reload:

7km & 45 seconds shortest

10km & 60 seconds average

20km & 1 minute 45 seconds longest.

 

USN:

Tier 2~5 Destroyer's torpedo range & reload:

4.5km & 30 seconds shortest

5.5km & 45 seconds average

7km & 60 seconds longest.

 

Tier 6~10 Destroyer's torpedo range & reload:

7km & 45 seconds shortest

10km & 60 seconds average

20km & 1 minute 45 seconds longest.

 

tl;dr version:

Japanese have advantage in torpedo range in early game until the tier 10 but their torpedo detection is longer a bit than US counterpart.

US don't have advantage in torpedo range in early game but they have 2 set of torpedo tubes on left & right side of the ship. There will be increase in torpedo range after tier 5.

the easiest way to check range is to look at the Torpedo type you have in the module section of the port, but in game you can use other methods which have already been posted.

With each ship having different stats in terms of range, the best option is to go into the modules section while in port and look at the gun range and torpedo range before starting a battle in that ship. Torpedo speed also plays a role which you should account for as it will affect your lead.

Best check the stats of your weapons before you click battle at port, otherwise you may end up grinding hard

USN DD's = better guns

IJN DD's = torps
