Smoke Generator Data

Found on all destroyers, British cruisers of Tier V and above, and a few premium cruisers such as Mikhail Kutuzov. It deploys vision-obscuring smoke, and reduces the enemy detection capabilities within the area of smoke. However, it also impairs your vision and it will be extremely difficult to escape if they are able to spot you within. Your teammates will be required to spot enemies for you, but staying in a smoke screen is generally safe.

When activated, the Smoke Screen consumable will generate "puffs" of smoke at regular intervals for the emission duration listed, as long as the ship generating it has moved far enough away from the center of the last "puff". These puffs are easily visible by enabling "Show Smoke Boundaries" in the bottom right corner of the Settings > Controls window. Enabling this option will show the boundaries of smoke clouds laid by both friends and enemies once you are at close range to the border of the cloud. British cruiser smoke "puffs" are larger in diameter than those laid by destroyers.

A smoke screen can be used in a variety of ways, from providing cover to your allies to blocking off line of sight through a choke point. As a destroyer — especially a Japanese destroyer — a smoke screen should be deployed if being fired upon. Ships moving faster than 12.5 knots will not be enveloped in their own smoke clouds; ships moving at very high speed will lay very large swaths of smoke behind them for teammates to use.

A tactic known as "invisi-firing" involving ships with guns to be able to fire without being detected and sometimes involving a smoke screen. Many mid-tier players employ this tactic and sit still in the smoke screen, landing shells on enemies without them retaliating. Most American and Russian destroyers can perform this easily due to their fast-firing guns and long range. It is not entirely foolproof, since enemies can still see shell arcs emerging from the smoke cloud and may be able to trace those shell arcs and shoot in your general location. In addition, someone must spot enemies outside of the smoke screen for you, or else you will have nothing to fire at. It is not recommended to attempt this unless you know the enemy will not target you. Even then, enemy ships may simply send torpedoes into the smoke and get an easy kill.

Ships concealed by smoke are not revealed when they fire their anti-aircraft or secondary battery guns.

Note: Japanese destroyers Shiratsuyu, Kagero, and Yūgumo can exchange this consumable for Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.).
