Player Opinion

Performance

The gateway to the Marine Nationale in World of Warships starts here with Tier I's Bougainville. She represents a class of avisos (dispatch boats) that were constructed in the 1930s.

Bougainville has a long rudder shift time and slow top speed to go with almost no armor protection to speak of. Her speed and rudder shift time combine to make her handle sluggishly for a Tier I ship — especially compared to the likes of Black Swan or Orlan.

Pros:

  • Second-largest health pool of all Tier I ships.
  • Highest shell damage of all Tier I ships.
  • High damage per minute.
  • Highest AA DPS of all Tier I ships (not that she will ever see an enemy aircraft carrier).

Cons:

Research

Like all Tier I ships, Bougainville has no researchable upgrades.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

With only one upgrade slot, options are limited. Captains who wish to invest the credits for the game or three they will spend in Bougainville are advised to equip Magazine Modification 1 : -70% risk. in Upgrade Slot 1.

Camouflage
