The border between mid and short-range, this turret proves effective in both small and medium maps alike. Ricochet, hence the name, uses projectiles encapsulated in a negative energy field, unlocking the unusual ability to rebound from surfaces. The second of the two plasma based weapons, [[Twins]] being the first, this one has a notably slower fire rate and cannot be used indefinitely, requiring time to charge after expending a certain number of shells. However, in comparison to its sibling, Ricochet has faster moving projectiles, greater range and the ability to attack foes indirectly from behind cover, so long as players are capable of accurate targeting. Ricochet is extremely effective in maps with many buildings and other perpendicular surfaces, maximizing rebound potential.<br><br>

===Description in Garage===
A gun that can be tough to control. Ideal for short to mid-range battles. Possesses a unique feature in that its shells ricochet off walls, allowing it to shoot around corners. Just make sure you don’t take a ricocheting round right in the kisser! Goes well with all hulls.<br><br>
+
Small range turret. Plasma projectiles will ricochet and damage enemies even out of your field of vision. Has a limited energy capacity, which recharges over time.<br>

Plasmagun “Ricochet” is a new secret device created by top Siberian researches. To mass produce this turret, a team of 22 specialists worked for 3 years straight in an underground bunker without permission to see the sky. The final result is quite unique. This weapon fires plasma projectiles, coated with a “smart” minus-field. When hitting a tank the projectile will explode, but if it hits a solid obstacle it will bounce off and continue its flight. This way, using Ricochet you can hit targets even if you can’t see them. Unfortunately, it was impossible to solve the safety issue completely, and plasma rounds can easily bounce back and hit the tank who fired them in the first place. The “smart” minus-field is clever, but not clever enough to distinguish enemy tanks from the user. <br><br>

Ricochet 02.png


The border between mid and short-range, this turret proves effective in both small and medium maps alike. Ricochet, hence the name, uses projectiles encapsulated in a negative energy field, unlocking the unusual ability to rebound from surfaces. The second of the two plasma-based weapons, Twins being the first, this one has a notably slower fire rate and cannot be used indefinitely, requiring time to charge after expending a certain number of shells. However, in comparison to its sibling, Ricochet has faster moving projectiles, greater range and the ability to attack foes indirectly from behind cover, so long as players are capable of accurate targeting. Ricochet is extremely effective in maps with many buildings and other perpendicular surfaces, maximizing rebound potential.

Description in Garage

Small range turret. Plasma projectiles will ricochet and damage enemies even out of your field of vision. Has a limited energy capacity, which recharges over time.

Plasmagun “Ricochet” is a new secret device created by top Siberian researches. To mass produce this turret, a team of 22 specialists worked for 3 years straight in an underground bunker without permission to see the sky. The final result is quite unique. This weapon fires plasma projectiles, coated with a “smart” minus-field. When hitting a tank the projectile will explode, but if it hits a solid obstacle it will bounce off and continue its flight. This way, using Ricochet you can hit targets even if you can’t see them. Unfortunately, it was impossible to solve the safety issue completely, and plasma rounds can easily bounce back and hit the tank who fired them in the first place. The “smart” minus-field is clever, but not clever enough to distinguish enemy tanks from the user.

  • Recoil — The physical impact of the turret upon its own tank when shooting.
  • Recharge time (sec) — The pause required between shots to launch another projectile.

  • Weak damage (%) — The percentage of normal damage dealt to an enemy tank at the end of the minimum damage range.
  • Projectile radius (m) — The invariable radius of the plasma projectile from its core to its outer surface.
  • Auto-aim upwards (deg) — The angle range that auto-aim will effect if a target is above the turret's horizontal plane.
  • Auto-aim downwards (deg) — The angle range that auto-aim will effect if a target is above the turret's horizontal plane.
