Decided to start a thread where people can share their close quarters expert achievements - If I'm not mistaken, this and die hard are the two hardest ones to get? And yes, I got this one on my Pensacola against a Cleveland, with AFT captain skills and secondaries upgrade ~ 6.5km range lel :trollface:

Nice, Never get CQ Expert ... since most of my close range target got torp ... or BB that secondary can't do much ... 

but die-hard is more easy to get .... if you gonna ram ... just don't go full speed ...

I might have got one with the Kawachi. When your guns are that inaccurate, you might as well drive closer to hit them with your sword.

 

The Kawachi and Myogi both have powerful secondary batteries (which generally can't hit anything over 1.5km away, mind you). Wyoming's is garbage (3 per side) which is why DDs happily charge you.

Did you actually get secondaries upgrade...on a Pensacolla of all things?

 

yeah well, given the amount of battles I've had lately with no CV's (especially ranked battles) and the lack of reward or incentive in shooting down planes, well, figured its was a better choice, and I have been damaging a lot of DD's with it too.

Mikasa es su casa.

 

Funnily enough, my first CQE was in a Myougi against a particularly dumb St Louis who "ambushed" me at 3km, drove closer  and broadside to me, then attempted to fire AP into me repeatedly. I knocked out his guns with a HE salvo, but the bulk of the damage he suffered were criticals and fires from the secondary weapons. Was extremely surprised when my secondaries finished him off after my second salvo (non-citadel AP) into him.

 

But otherwise, the next one came from Mikasa, since it's Mikasa.

A DD tried to do a torp run on me,I fired my main cannons one by one with AP loaded.

(I know it sounds stupid trying to kill a DD with AP shells,but if it works,its not stupid!:D)

Knocked 85% of his health out,secondaries started to shoot at him.

Enemy Destroyer Sunk!

"GET REKT" are the words that came out of my mouth.

I don't have a screen shot, but I think my CQB beats the lot of you (got it yesterday) for funny.


 

In a Colorado, which I like to get close with anyway, come round an island and there's an enemy DD only 3km away just sitting there (was trying to cap) at full health. I think I'm in trouble, as the guns are pointed away from him engaging some cruisers (luckily he was bow on, so couldn't launch immediately), when my secondaries fire their first shot (only one), and ....... detonation!  :)

 

Must have been about the only time the RNG gods have smiled on me in this game.

For it's Tier and even one above it, the Mikasa has great secondaries and can also achieve the award :)

hm? if you shoot secondary at DD on BB ... so I confused ... so is it damage cause by secondary gun must exceed 20% of "your" ship .... so how you get that ? ... or it another miss translation ?

My first CQE achievement was come from ...

 

 UMIKAZE !:trollface:

 

DgmTvED.jpg

 

I think she is the best ship to earning CQE achievement : secondary guns have high RoF and good accuracy , with tier 2 and 3 room , 105mm can penetrate enemy Destroyers easily , low HP , easy to satisfy the requirement ( just 1720 damage ) . :trollface:

 

Best target for CQE is Watatake , her main guns traverse speed are bad and torpedo isn't dangerous enough , chase her down if you meet in battle :D

well not surprisingly, it happened in a CV

I guess that counts :hiding:
