Player Opinion


Prinz Eugen is similar in many ways to her sister ship in the tech tree — Admiral Hipper — with identical guns, armor, and torpedoes. The guns are long range and have relatively flat trajectories, but with only eight of them and a low fire chance they can seem inadequate at times against tougher enemies. The torpedoes are the standard 6.0 km range, 13,700 damage G7a T1 torpedoes familiar to veterans of the German cruiser branch — mounted in two triple launchers per side just like Admiral Hipper — with fairly generous firing angles. She has very strong anti-aircraft defenses for her tier, similar to Hipper’s Hull (C), but her rudder responds more slowly. Additionally, her detection range is notably worse than that of Admiral Hipper: b a full 0.7 km worse.

Overall, she is extremely similar to her sister and does not really bring anything new to the table. Captains who enjoy playing Admiral Hipper will find Prinz Eugen to be enjoyable and comfortable to play; captains who did not care for Hipper are advised to invest their money elsewhere.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Prinz Eugen from the NA forums


  • Excellent rate of fire, main battery range and accuracy, and shell velocity.
  • Top-of-the-line armor piercing rounds with excellent penetration, capable of punishing damage against beam-on targets regardless of class.
  • Quick turret traverse speed.
  • German armor scheme makes her resilient to damage when angled at medium and close ranges.
  • Generous torpedo firing arcs.
  • One of the best anti-aircraft suites in her tier (only Mikhail Kutuzov is better).
  • Her torpedoes, like Hipper are lights out if they hit.
  • Excellent velocity.
  • High firing arcs plus great main battery range.


  • Large turning radius.
  • Poor stealth characteristics; she has a very large detectability radius, and will draw a lot of long-range fire from enemy ships in her stock configuration.
  • Mediocre performance from her high-explosive shells.
  • Can struggle to do damage against angled targets (due to HE shell performance).
  • Average top speed; most other Tier VIII ships can keep up with her or simply run her down.
  • Exceptionally vulnerable to long-range plunging fire.


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

Optimal Configuration


Virtually all builds of Prinz Eugen find themselves mounting at least two upgrades in common: Main Armaments Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 1 and Damage Control System Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 4. Steering Gears Modification 2 is typically taken in Upgrade Slot 5 to improve her handling. Concealment System Modification 1 is highly recommended in Upgrade Slot 6 in order to help curtail her large detection radius. Combined with a captain with the Level 4 skill Concealment Expert, her detectability range drops under 12km. Conversely, Steering Gears Modification 3 is a strong option in Slot 6 for captains who prefer quicker rudder response.

As with most cruisers, the upgrade in Upgrade Slot 2 is what will differentiate one Prinz Eugen from another.

Generalist Build: The easy choice for Slot 2 is Aiming Systems Modification 1, which improves her shell dispersion and provides a minor buff to her secondary battery. This is the recommended pick for captains who don't wish to specialize the ship in anti-aircraft defenses.

Anti-Aircraft Build: Prinz Eugen’s already outstanding AA suite can be made even more potent by equipping AA Guns Modification 2, and maximized by assigning a captain with Advanced Firing Training. This pair of upgrades pushes the firing radius of her 105mm dual-purpose guns out to 6.5 km, providing excellent anti-aircraft protection for herself and teammates when utilizing Defensive AA Fire. This does mean sacrificing the exceptional German Hydroacoustic Search, however, and is a setup that is largely wasted in games without an aircraft carrier present.

Commander Skills

Prinz Eugen — like her sister ship, Admiral Hipper — prefers to hold opponents at arms' length. Brawling is not recommended unless the situation is heavily favorable, and the skills of her commander should be tailored to such a strategy. At this end of the German cruiser line the ships begin to play — and handle — more like small battleships, and players will frequently find their commander skill choices echoing those popularly found on battleships: Priority Target at Level 1 and Expert Marskman at Level 2. Concealment Expert is also highly recommended at Level 4, as is Advanced Firing Training for captains pursuing an Anti-Aircraft Build. Level 4 also offers Manual Control for AA Armament to captains wishing to go all-in on their Anti-Aircraft Build; this is a very strong skill for high-tier German cruisers and battleships due to the AA potency of their dual-purpose 105mm guns.

Level 3 is where captains are offered some customization in their build. Captains preferring the Anti-Aircraft Build will want to opt for Basic Firing Training. Those pursuing the Generalist Build are better off opting for Demolition Expert; Vigilance is also a decent choice.


Prinz Eugen has access to the Damage Control Party, Defensive AA Fire, Hydroacoustic Search, and Catapult Fighter consumables. The premium version of Damage Control Party is highly recommended. The choice between Defensive AA Fire and Hydroacoustic Search depends largely on how her commander's skill points are invested. Captains who have heavily invested into the Anti-Aircraft Build may wish to go all-in with Defensive AA Fire, or shore up their vulnerability to enemy torpedo strikes with Hydroacoustic Search. Conversely, captains who opted for the more Generalist Build approach can likewise go either way depending on who their division-mates are.


As a premium ship, Prinz Eugen comes included with Type 30 camouflage that is unique to her. It lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, increases the amount of experience she earns, and provides an additional bonus to the experience earned by her commander.

An alternate Adler camouflage is available for purchase as well, with the added bonus of increasing her credit earnings by 10%.
