Each fleet in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 has some common artillery, among them is torpedoes. These are powerful weaponry at short-range. In this guide, you’ll know how to use torpedoes as well as techniques you can use in your battles.
How To Use Torpedoes – Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2
There are various torpedoes in the game that are used for different reasons. They could be used to cause fires and hull damage, while some are used to board the ship and cause troop damage. The problem is that they could be easily dodged, intercepted, or gunned down before impact.
The first tip is to be close as possible to the enemy ship to inflict maximum damage. Remember to not get too close or else the torpedo would be ineffective—it’s indicated by the red lines near your ship.
Another great technique is to use area denial. Do this by flanking your enemy ship to block his possible paths out by barraging it with torpedoes. It’s an effective strategy to secure a hit on your enemy ship. Great prediction skills will help you when doing this tactic.
In general, effective use of your torpedo relies on your knowledge of the disadvantages of your enemy’s ships. Some factions don’t particularly have a way to deflect them, such as turrets and other squadrons. If so, you can take advantage of that right away.
