Player Opinion

Performance

Compared to her tech tree counterpart Nicholas, Hill has fewer health points (HP). To balance this, she has an added turret, better turning radius, and is slightly faster. Hill excels at hunting destroyers at her tier due to the limited amount of radar she will face. She performs best when utilizing islands for cover, baiting the enemy into her torpedo range. In open water, her Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. provides quick cover to allow for Hill to engage with guns or return to concealment.

Pros:

  • Five fast-reloading US 127mm guns
  • Good agility with a decent top speed.
  • Long-lasting American smoke.
  • Torpedo armament layout provides dedicated launchers to each side of the ship with an extra launcher that can engage either way.

Cons:

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Hill are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

Hill can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

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

Signals

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
