Player Opinion


Black is very similar to her tech tree counterpart Fletcher, with the main differences being her torpedoes and the availability of the Radar consumable. Black is unique among destroyers in that she can equip radar. This radar is weaker than other radars in high tier, featuring a 7.5km range and a 20 sec active time. This radar still makes Black a fearsome cap fighter, able to see through smoke to spot for her team and continue damaging enemy DD's. The other major difference is the torpedoes. Black's torpedoes feature a a 13.7km range and rated for 21600 damage, but travel at the slow speed of 43 knots. These torpedoes are more for area denial, as one cannot really lead targets with them, as they take longer to reach their max range than they do to reload.


  • Same excellent concealment as the Fletcher.
  • Very fast turret rotation speed.
  • Very rapid rate of fire.
  • Torpedoes hit very hard, reload faster than the Fletcher's torpedoes, have more range than the Fletcher's torpedoes, and are difficult to dodge.
  • Has access to either Defensive AA Fire consumable or a unique Surveillance Radar consumable.
  • Unlike the Fletcher, the Black is a premium ship so captain retraining is unnecessary.


  • Same fragility as the Fletcher.
  • Torpedoes are incredibly slow, slower than the Sims' infamous "sea mines".
  • Slower than the Fletcher.
  • Slow shell speed makes it difficult to hit targets from range.


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

Optimal Configuration

Commander Skills


Like the Tier IX USN destroyer Fletcher, Black has standard consumables of Damage Control Party, Smoke Generator, and Defensive AA Fire. But unlike Fletcher and like Missouri, it is a Tier IX USN premium ship with access to the Surveillance Radar consumable. However, this Surveillance Radar occupies the same slot as Smoke Generator and Defensive Fire consumables, only has a range of 7.5km and lasts only 20 seconds. Thus:

  • Players looking to counter aerial threats are recommended to equip the Defensive Fire consumable.
  • Players looking to counter and hunt down enemy destroyers are recommended to mount the Surveillance Radar consumable.


As a Tier IX premium ship, Black comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns. This Type 10 camouflage provides a 100% bonus to experience earned in battle, not the usual 50%.
