Battle Levels

Weymouth — British Tier II cruiser.

This medium-size cruiser had weak armor protection, but boasted powerful artillery and quite a high speed. She was conceived as a "trade protection" cruiser and was designated for countering lightly-armed enemy ships of the same type.

Player Opinion


Weymouth introduces captains to the 152mm rifle, which remains the standard armament of the British cruiser line all the way to Tier X. The ballistics of the shells at this tier is not particularly great, but is satisfactory given the speed and maneuverability of opposing ships captains are likely to encounter at Tiers II and III. The ship itself is nothing spectacular — decent handling and plenty of gun barrels — and while it begins to give captains a taste of what a cruiser line without high explosive looks like, having no other damage options available besides armor-piercing rounds is somewhat frustrating. Thankfully, Weymouth is the last ship in the branch not to have torpedoes available.


  • Solid rate of fire on main battery guns.
  • Largest health pool of non-premium Tier II cruisers.
  • Longest firing range of non-premium Tier II cruisers.
  • Best armor in her tier (for what it is worth).


  • Not terribly maneuverable; much longer rudder shift time than her contemporaries.
  • Large detectability radius.
  • Lack of high explosive shells and torpedoes makes her damage output somewhat inconsistent.
  • Doesn't have access to the Repair Party consumable like the rest of the British cruiser branch does.


The Fire Control System upgrade is less expensive than Hull (B), and is a significant boost to Weymouth’s range. Invest experience there first, then pick up the second hull.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrade for Weymouth is as follows:

Commander Skills

With no AA worth mentioning and no high explosive shells available, Tier 1 and Tier 4 skills for Weymouth commanders are something of a conundrum. Basics of Survivability and Survivability Expert are probably the best options available. Most other tiers have a couple of decent options to choose from.


As a Tier II ship, Weymouth only has access to the Damage Control Party consumable. Captains wishing to spend the credits (or doubloons) can invest in Damage Control Party II.


Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.


Equal Speed Charlie London can be equipped by captains anxious to quickly grind through the ship. Players brand new to the line might also be interested in mounting Zulu Hotel signals if they are looking to train a commander and carry him through the line with them. Hotel Yankee can be equipped by players looking to run down and ram enemy destroyers to death. India Yankee is helpful when fighting other ships that spew copious quantities of high explosive shells (such as St. Louis or Dresden).
