7 Ways to Get Better at World of Tanks

Becoming better at World of Tanks is as simple as focusing on a few key areas.

Watch Your Minimap

Another way you can guarantee you will become better at World of Tanks is if you pay attention to your minimap. You only have a limited field-of-vision when looking at the screen, but the minimap tells you critical information that you might otherwise miss.

See the square in the lower-right corner? That's the minimap. Always be checking the minimap.

Enemy positions, allied locations, player movement, and pings are all displayed on the minimap. Another important indicator is what direction your gun is facing. This comes in handy if you want to “draw a line” between you and an enemy tank on the map that is outside your tank’s render distance.

“Tunnelling” is a term used to describe focusing solely on what is at the end of your gun. This can be deadly, as you lose all awareness of your surroundings. Remembering to check your minimap will ensure you aren’t being crept up on from behind.

Looking at the minimap will also help you figure out when to flank in World of Tanks. Whenever you aren’t lining up a shot, always be checking your minimap. Your eyes should always be shifting down to it, checking where your allies are and where your enemies will be. The minimap is key to getting better at World of Tanks.

Oh, and for the love of all that is sacred in World of Tanks, please maximize the size of your mini-map.
