 Much like the Minekaze, the Mutsuki is also heavily reliant on its torpedoes to perform well. However, it does suffer from quite a long reload time (over a minute). Players sometimes nicknamed the ship "Mutsucky" because when it comes to every category critical to the strengths of mid tier IJN DD's (torpedo reload, speed, concealment, launcher config, etc), it was somewhat of a downgrade from the Minekaze. While slower than the Minekaze, the Mutsuki still features the fantastic detection and torpedo ranges that make the mid tier IJN destroyers so devastating although you may have a hard time running away if you get detected. The Mutsuki features 2 triple-tube torpedo mounts, and can have fairly decent AA. With a surface detection range of 6.2km without camouflage and an air detection range of 3.1km, and a torpedo range of 8km, the Mutsuki can remain undetected whilst unleashing torpedo hell on the enemy. This is highly recommended as its poor armor coupled with mediocre gun performance mean you will not last long in a gun duel. Stay away from ships, at least 7 km away, and only use your guns in self-defense provided you are already detected. Much like the Minekaze, the Mutsuki is also heavily reliant on its torpedoes to perform well.

Mutsuki — Japanese Tier V destroyer.

Developed from the Minekaze class, equipped with a reinforced torpedo armament. This class inherited high speed and sufficiently powerful artillery from its predecessors. Greater dimensions made it possible to equip these destroyers with 610 mm torpedoes.

Player Opinion

Performance

Much like the Minekaze, the Mutsuki is also heavily reliant on its torpedoes to perform well. However, it does suffer from quite a long reload time (over a minute). Players sometimes nicknamed the ship "Mutsucky" because when it comes to every category critical to the strengths of mid tier IJN DD's (torpedo reload, speed, concealment, launcher config, etc), it was somewhat of a downgrade from the Minekaze. While slower than the Minekaze, the Mutsuki still features the fantastic detection and torpedo ranges that make the mid tier IJN destroyers so devastating although you may have a hard time running away if you get detected. The Mutsuki features 2 triple-tube torpedo mounts, and can have fairly decent AA. With a surface detection range of 6.2km without camouflage and an air detection range of 3.1km, and a torpedo range of 8km, the Mutsuki can remain undetected whilst unleashing torpedo hell on the enemy. This is highly recommended as its poor armor coupled with mediocre gun performance mean you will not last long in a gun duel. Stay away from ships, at least 7 km away, and only use your guns in self-defense provided you are already detected.

Pros:

  • Low detection range.
  • 8 km Torpedo range.
  • Decent speed.
  • Decent reload time with the gun upgrade.
  • Arguably a more dangerous DD at Tier V than Minekaze's new form.
  • Usable torpedoes which can compete in Tier VII matches.

Cons:

  • Reload time of stock guns is abysmal, but this can be fixed with the gun module.
  • Terrible gun traverse speed, even with the upgrade.
  • Small gun range, equal to Minekaze.
  • No armor, incapacitations are likely to happen when the ship takes hits.
  • Slow torpedo speed makes them easier to dodge.
  • Low hitpoint pool.

Research

With the IJN DD line changes, Mutsuki is fairly simple. Get the upgraded hull, upgraded guns, and then upgraded range for those guns. Then proceed to Fubuki at Tier VI.

Optimal Configuration


Commander Skills

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the detection range.

Signals

Mutsuki has fairly decent speed for her tier and vs her peers, so Sierra Mike is not highly recommended. Additionally, because she is an IJN destroyer with only two sets of torpedo launchers and only two guns, Victor Lima, India X-Ray, and Juliet Whiskey Unaone are not recommended. However, if the player so wishes to speed through their XP grind on Mutsuki, they can equip Equal Speed Charlie London and Zulu Hotel for commander XP.
