Top 7 Autoloaders in World of Tanks
If you’re looking for burst damage, you’ve come to the right place.
Autoloaders are an incredibly powerful sub-class of vehicle in World of Tanks, providing the user knows how to put them in the right situation. They specialise in burst damage and unfair one-on-one engagements to crush their opponent’s firepower, and dish out far more damage than they take. The magazine can be a curse as well as a blessing, however, as inexperienced players may find themselves unstuck as they overcommit to squeeze out those last few shells, just to quickly find they’ve rattled the hornet’s nest as they’re stuck with a very long and unforgiving reload.
In this article we’ll be taking a look at the best Autoloaders in World of Tanks, as well as giving a few tips on how to play them.
Škoda T 25
The Czech Mediums make for some of the finest autoloaders in the game, and we’ll be seeing more of them later. Down at Tier 6 we find our first one; a surprisingly powerful and often disregarded 3-shell magazine. The alpha damage of this 75mm isn’t making anyone cower in fear, and a limited magazine size makes this seem even more underwhelming.
In practice, however, the Skoda T 25 is an absolute monster when it comes to damage output. An intra-clip reload of 1.33 seconds allows the gun to unload 330 alpha damage in a mere 2.66 seconds, before only having to spend around 7 seconds reloading the entire magazine. This hidden potential makes the Skoda T 25 woefully underrated by those unfamiliar with it, allowing it to surprise the enemy with a nice cup of 3-shells-to-the-hull.
This gun is very comparable to the Chi-Ri an entire Tier above, but due to the Skoda’s far superior mobility it makes for a far better Tank as far as I’m concerned.
