Player Opinion

Performance

Smith is a unique ship in that it has three single tube torpedo launchers, one on each side and one near the stern that can fire to either side. Her torpedoes have extremely low damage, range, and speed, but they reload every 11 seconds. This gives her a very interesting playstyle contrasting to the higher alpha strikes of the other low tier destroyers. She can afford to randomly fire torpedoes at possible enemy locations, however with only a 4.5km range, this works best in confined areas such as the southwest section of Big Race and maps such as Islands which have lots of cover to allow her to get close (and be careful not to fire torpedoes at allies!). Another interesting tactic that can be used is to find a low tier battleship and simply shoot more torpedoes than it can dodge at it, resulting in an amusing chain of torpedo hits and flooding if she can stay alive. As for her guns, they are the smallest and weakest in the game, rivaled only by Tachibana’s. They don't do much damage, and the HE will bounce off an Umikaze. They fire fast, but that's all they have going for them. Overall, the ship - while not very good - is extremely amusing to play.


Pros:

  • Very fast firing guns for Tier II ship.
  • Small profile.
  • Very fast torpedo reload.

Cons:

  • Very small health pool.
  • Very slow for a destroyer.
  • Lowest torpedo alpha at only two torpedoes in a salvo maximum.
  • 76mm guns are the smallest in the game, with low damage and bad penetration values.
  • Abysmal gunnery range.

Research

As a premium ship, Smith doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Smith are as follows:

Captains who are concerned about possible detonations are encouraged to equip Magazine Modification 1 (-70% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonation.) instead.

Commander Skills

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.

Consumables

Smith can equip the following consumables:

Investing in Damage Control Party II (While active, instantly repairs any module incapacitations, fires, and floods.) and Smoke Generator II (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) is recommended, but spending the credits (or doubloons) on the premium version of Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) isn't really necessary.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Smith comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
