Yūgumo — Japanese Tier IX destroyer.

Developed from the preceding Kagero-class destroyers, the very similar Yūgumo-class was a minor revision featuring new main gun mounts capable of high angle fire, reinforced AA defenses and a streamlined bridge structure.

Player Opinion


Replacing Kagero (as of Update 0.5.15) as the penultimate destroyer in this particular branch of the Japanese destroyer line is Yūgumo. Captains who have progressed this far up the branch will be well-familiar with the layout of the ship, but will probably be disappointed in how few improvements there are over Tier VIII's Kagero lurking inside the hull.

One drastic improvement is the reload time of Yūgumo’s main battery guns. Her reload time is a mere 5.7 seconds; glacially slow by American destroyer standards, but a speed heretofore unseen with Japanese 127mm guns. With the right mix of upgrades and commander skills that number can drop even lower, bringing Yūgumo into contention with the likes of Udaloi as a decent long-range gunboat. Her main battery range goes up significantly as well, further emphasizing the benefits of her improved reload speed.

Most everything else remains as it was from Kagero. Her stock torpedoes are the same Type 93 mod. 2 that Kagero can upgrade to, and Yūgumo’s upgraded torpedoes — the Type F3 — are not the automatic upgrade-and-equip most players may be accustomed to. Her speed improves slightly (0.5 knots), and her handling characteristics remain virtually identical. Her anti-aircraft suite is still unable to defend her from concentrated aerial assault, and her health pool goes up by the slimmest of amounts (400 hit points). Even Yūgumo’s detection radius is worse than Kagero’s, but it's very slight and not a serious handicap.

If not for her access to Upgrade Slot 3, Yūgumo might actually be considered a downgrade from Kagero; luckily, the addition of that lone upgrade slot combined with her improved main battery makes her a very potent destroyer at her tier. When built out to maximize either the reload time of her main battery or her torpedoes, Yūgumo is a deadly opponent.


  • Excellent reload speed for her main battery guns (in comparison to most other Japanese destroyers, that is).
  • Has access to Upgrade Slot 3.
  • Lowest detection radius among Tier IX destroyers.
  • Very potent torpedo armament, capable of impressive reload speeds with the right mix of upgrades and commander skills.
  • Can equip Torpedo Reload Booster.


  • No real major improvements from Kagero besides the main battery reload speed.
  • Lowest top speed among Tier IX destroyers; Yūgumo has a difficult time escaping enemy gunboat destroyers that are able to close with her.
  • Highly vulnerable to enemy aircraft.
  • Turret traverse time for main battery remains slow.
  • Detection range of Type 93 torpedoes gives opponents more time to react than torpedoes from Fletcher or Udaloi.


Yūgumo has only three possible upgrades to research. As usual, upgrading Hull (B) first is highly recommended for the extra hit points. The Fire Control System upgrade should be taken next. Investing experience in the Type F3 torpedoes is up to individual captains. Many will eschew them entirely, preferring to save the experience to spend on unlocking Shimakaze.

Optimal Configuration


Like so many of her Japanese destroyer brethren before her, Yugumo’s flexibility in upgrade options is somewhat limited. Upgrade Slot 1 is best filled with Main Armaments Modification 1, while Upgrade Slot 4 and Upgrade Slot 5 should be filled with Propulsion Modifications 1 and 2, respectively. Concealment System Modification 1 is mandatory in Upgrade Slot 6. This leaves only a couple of upgrade slots that can truly customize how Yugumo plays.

Torpedo Build: Most captains will opt to fully maximize Yūgumo’s torpedo armament. This means installing Torpedo Tubes Modification 3 in Upgrade Slot 3, and either Aiming Systems Modification 1 or Main Battery Modification 2 in Upgrade Slot 2. The latter may seem like an odd choice, but is a good hedge bet for when she finds herself in a close-quarters gunfight with the likes of a Fletcher or Gearing. In either case, stacking Torpedo Tubes Modification 3 with Tier 3 commander skill Torpedo Armament Expertise brings Yūgumo’s torpedo reload time for her Type 93 torpedoes down to slightly under 86 seconds; it drops to less than 80 seconds for the Type F3 torpedoes. These are terrifyingly low numbers that no opposing battleship driver wants to hear given how hard those torpedoes hit.

Main Battery Build: Alternatively, Yūgumo is one of the only Japanese destroyers not named Akizuki that can realistically consider tailoring the ship around her main battery guns. By combining Aiming Systems Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 2, Main Battery Modification 3 in Upgrade Slot 3, and the Tier 1 commander skill Basic Firing Training, Yūgumo drops her main battery reload time down to 4.5 seconds. While this is still 50% slower than Fletcher, it compares favorably to Udaloi. Playing Yūgumo in this style of build is challenging, but not impossible.

Commander Skills


Yūgumo is forced to choose between Smoke Generator and a downgraded version of the Torpedo Reload Booster consumable that Shiratsuyu and Akizuki have access to. Whichever one is chosen, captains are encouraged to invest the credits (or doubloons) in the premium version. As ever, Damage Control Party II is also highly recommended. Engine Boost II might be worthwhile for captains without Smoke Generator; otherwise, the free version should be more than adequate.


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

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Yūgumo with Type 19 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.


Yūgumo’s reliance on her torpedoes for much of her damage output make equipping Juliet Whiskey Unaone signal flags highly attractive, particularly for Torpedo Build captains; Torpedo Build captains will want to equip November Foxtrot flags as well, in order to improve the cooldown speed of Torpedo Reload Booster. Main Battery Build captains should equip India X-Ray and Victor Lima flags. Juliet Charlie and Sierra Mike flags are recommended regardless of build.
