Player Opinion

Performance

Hayate is a Tier X Japanese destroyer that sits as a Special Ship in her tree.

In appearance Hayate looks very comparable to her same tier counterpart Shimakaze. This is only partially true as she departs from her distant cousin in several ways. The first notable change is that Hayate has different main guns that fire the same shells but with a faster reload and better gun handling. The combination of it's reload time, HE Alpha, and ability to both track and hit targets even at closer range give Hayate a potent tool against destroyers, who will most likely not be able to match her damage output.

In terms of torpedo armament Hayate also deviates. While she is using the same torpedoes and fires from quintuple launchers as well, she sacrificed one of the launchers, giving her only ten torpedoes to use at any given point. Hayate is also limited in the choice of torpedoes, having only access to the Type 93 Mod 3 torpedoes, the 12km option. These torpedoes still hit very hard against any target and also have good speed with usable range, but the long reload of two and a half minutes stock, as well as the relatively high torpedo detection, can be troublesome. Another difference to Shimakaze is that Hayate has access to Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) which shares the same slot as her Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.), so if a player chooses to sacrifice the benefits of a Smoke Generator a quick follow up torpedo salvo can be executed. The consumable cuts the torpedo reload to eight seconds.

Hayate's surface detection is average at best for a Tier X destroyer. When fully specced for concealment she sits at 6.1km, worse than for example Grozovoi her distant cousin Shimakaze. This makes destroyer hunting a dangerous task as Hayate can and often will get out-spotted, giving her prey time to react. The maneuverability is also average, with a rather slow speed though.

Against aircraft Hayate is better suited than Shimakaze, with more effective dual-purpose guns and a 40mm Bofors battery. However, against the high hit point pools of Tier X planes, the AA defense can not be relied upon.

In terms of playstyle, Hayate is a jack of all trades. She can be built for torpedoes, or guns using the necessary captain skills and modules. As for the positioning of ‘’Hayate’’, she should be played closer to the objective, battling other destroyers, and capturing objectives.

Pros:

  • Excellent rate of fire for Japanese 127mm guns
  • Very good main battery traverse speed and firing angles
  • Excellent main battery ballistics, shell velocity, HE damage and fire chance
  • Powerful torpedoes with high damage, speed and range
  • Large hitpoint pool
  • Access to the Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable

Cons:

  • Base main battery range is fairly bad
  • Extremely long torpedo reload time
  • Torpedoes have poor detectability and can be easily spotted
  • Weak AA suite, vulnerable to plane attacks
  • Large turn radius and fairly sluggish rudder shift
  • Must give up Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) to equip Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.)
  • Concealment is fairly poor for a Japanese destroyer
  • Extremely expensive at two million free experience points

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Hayate are as follows:


Upgrade Slot 3 provides players with two viable choices. Aiming Systems Modification 1 (Increases the firing accuracy of the main battery and secondary battery, accelerates the traverse speed of torpedo tubes, and extends the firing range of the secondary battery: -7% main battery dispersion. / +20% torpedo tubes traverse speed. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion.) is recommended for a gunboat focused build; however, for a torpedo-centric configuration, players should take Torpedo Tubes Modification 1 (+20% traverse speed of torpedo tubes. / −40% chance of critical damage to torpedo tubes. / +5% to the speed of shipborne torpedoes.).

Upgrade Slot 6 again provides a choice between strengthening gun power or torpedo reload. Those that prefer the former should mount Main Battery Modification 3 (Reduces the reload time of the main battery guns: -12% main battery loading time. / -13% main battery traverse speed.), while players wishing to strike from the shadows, will want to utilize Torpedo Tubes Modification 2 (Decreases reload time of torpedo tubes: -15% reload time. / +50% risk of incapacitation.).

Commander Skills

Key skills for Hayate commanders include Priority Target, Last Stand, Survivability Expert and Concealment Expert. Regardless of intended play style, these four skills should be taken first. For a gunboat build, Basic Firing Training and Demolition Expert are important skills to increase the effectiveness of its guns. On the other hand, Torpedo Armament Expertise is vital to reduce the reload of torpedoes on the other build.

Consumables

Hayate can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

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