Hi everyone, i want to ask how to play the AT 8. My gun is stock and just unlocked the 75mm. It's gun often bounce on even tier 5 tanks and aiming weakspot is hard due to poor gun arc and depression. My crew is at 84% atm. Any tips is appreciated. Thanks :).

Yeah, get to the top gun and 100% crew as fast as you can. And carry enough gold because you aren't going to get around anything that isn't blind, or doesn't care for about a minute.

I usually free XP the next gun/top gun if the current vehicle gun is inadequate (KV-1S, Centurion 1) so free xp is your best answer I think, try to farm free xp in your favourite tanks or get some gold to throw in.

Carry gold ammo when stock, you have to. And also, wiggling is quite useless, the cupola is just too big. Lol

You could , however , hide the entire right side of the hull(aka all your frontal weakspot) with a rock , a building or anything solid and watch as everyone who meets you fail to penetrate until somebody gets the bright idea to get around you

In fact , i once held a KV4 and Tiger II at bay simply because they cant fire at my weakspot and dont feel like eating my APCR until my team comes around and mop them up for me

Happy grinding! I gave up on this tank because of it's weak armour. However if you can do better than me, go ahead and grind.

If anything, hide the left side of your tank behind a building or something. Works wonders. They can't shoot your weak spots.

 

Oh, and poke that gun out of course. (Pretty obvious though)

Terrible TD. I am still using the 6 pdr. I lost 34000 credits in my last win and got hardly any XP to show for it. It's the worst grind I have encountered. I can span gold in a mostly stock KV 4 and still make a profit. So what gives with this dud?

Yeah, the 6-pdr and 75 mm guns are pretty crap. When I first bought my AT 8 and saw the stats on those guns, I just nope'd and used free xp to unlock the 77 mm gun. No regrets whatsoever. :P

I went 67% over 97 games with a 0% platoon rate and just over a kill a game grinding all the way. No premium account. It's slow, and therefore needs a halfway functional team, but it isn't that bad. Frustrating early because that gun is just so underpowered, but it isn't that bad.

Good point. That's a good idea due to the location of the gun. If I was in my Comet, I'd flank and it's bye bye!

Once you get the 77mm(which alleviates the situation), your set.

 

Once you get the 17-pdr, it's pretty good. It's got a great ROF as well. Though I agree, the stock grind is brutal.

Changed my mind on it. It's good once fully upgraded. Still a bit tough playing it on some maps but it seems to have a sweet spot as far as matchmaking goes.

This tank is a pain in the back.

Pros :.... I have no idea

Cons : super slow, weak guns, large cupola, easily get flanked, pen is super low.

War gaming .. If you read this, please give this tank something worth keeping for, i love the AT-2 but this... this... AT-8....is an abomination! This tank need some buff here and there, maybe a better gun? It's a TD, but his gun can't even pen a tier V....

Probably he's using the OQF 75mm Mk V., which had Terrible Penetration(92-95mm) and slow Muzzle Velocity.,  makes sense if he can pen a KV/AT-2


Just.,Just  Play Fallout., this gaem succ balls

To my case,my russian server playing life is quite long,but AT8 manages to kill my winrates due to the change in tactics used.its main use is not useful at all,all that 203mm armour serve no purpose cos everything can outflank it,i got flanked by a VK36.01H and cant rival its turning speed even with upgraded suspension.as a result death occurs,another thing it cant really do much than to be a sore thumb.There is so many issues with it a lot of people cant deny this.terrible speed,terrible turning,underpowered engine,a gun that cant elavate high or depress low enough to hit anything and aiming to left and right is bad enough for itself already.I would never consider this vehicle good in any way,even the basic stats is horrible.

This is is a 4 year old thread? Surprisingly AT8 doesn’t have the worst average stats according to BlitzStars, although I can’t imagine it is any good. I decided to play the Churchill GC instead. Guess it was a blessing...
