Hi Guys, simple question and I know I should probably know this already but its really biugging me.

 

Where are the weak spots of the Grosser Kurfurst?

 

I cant seem to find anything, nothing seems tpo work and I find self always having to just batter it into submission (when I can) rather than taking it out via a weak spot?

 

Thanks in advance.

You cannot, unless very far away.

Aim for the upper belt.

When close and you come from the front side, shoot under the forward turret.

You wont get citadel at browling ranges. Maybe at 17-25km with yamato guns. When broadside aim at main armor belt, thats about 20-30k pen dmg with montana guns. When angled aim for flat spots at nose and superstructure. When bow tankin aim superstructure. From some angles switch to He.

It's the strength of the Kurfürst that it is incredibly hard to citadel. To beat it, you just avoid getting citadelled in return and use your superior accuracy and superior gun firing angles.

She still wins more matches than most other silver Tier X BB, including the Republique that came after her...

Kurfurst is one of the biggest victims of powercreep and here we have OP asking for her "weak spots". 

 

Just take a Smolensk and put GK out of her misery.

It's certainly not a bad ship. Turtleback / Hydro / 50mm Platings allow to push in where other BBs would struggle.

Just too many people sailing full broadside to use all the guns and not caring about proper angling. No BB survives HE-spam for long and, Kremlin aside, the GKF is the most resistant against that.

 

It's just like the shittalking about Odin. Players don't have the situational

awareness to make their tools work, so the ship is bad.

 

Still my favorite boat for secondary memes.

Long range (about 18km+) it's possible to cit it through the deck, also it has a weak spot under the front turrets if the angle is correct. As seen in this video:

 

 

However, both spots are not easy to hit. Just be happy if you get one.

No. Unlike Odin, GK actually can do its goddamn job as a battleship and doesn't need stupid excuses of "play it like a supercruiser" which it isn't either. GK has actual guns that aren't absolutely pathetic for its tier and even gets a dpm edge over most of its opposition. It also has a sizable hp pool and secondary angles that make the secondaries way more useful. It might not have torps or concealment, but you don't need those when you have the guns to kill things and the ship still can win its brawls, just isn't overspecialised for it. GK is basically mediocre, but ok. Odin is [edited]garbage.

You can't citadel the Kurfurst at close ranges due to the German turtleback armor.

 

Just aim at the main armor belt, but aim to maximize the amount of hits (don't aim for the waterline). As mentioned above, it's the most powercrept BB in the game currently, so quite easy to outplay and destroy providing you play smart and don't aim to brawl it.
