Reddit User Wozihe Makes Hitting Long-Range Shots Look Easy

Screaming along at full-speed and landing an across-the-map shot should be hard, but Wozihe makes it look effortless

Hitting a target in World of Tanks can be difficult. Hitting a target while moving is a challenge. Hitting a target on the other side of a map while you’re moving should be downright impossible. Despite all of this, Reddit user Wozihe has done the impossible and made a shot that can only be described as phenomenal.

Posted on Reddit by Wozihe was the following Imgur-linked .gifv that shows Wozihe spewing up dust as they belted along the map in a USSR IS-6, a Tier 8 Premium Heavy Tank, only to aim in the distance and take out an enemy vehicle some hundreds of meters away. What’s amazing is that Wozihe doesn’t even consider slowing down and instead opts for a fast-paced drive-by. The Armor Piercing shell gets plenty of air-time before removing the opponent’s remaining health.

The response on Reddit has been what most long-time World of Tank players would come to expect; the hand of Stalin definitely guided that shell to its target. There’s something to be said about a nation if there’s an entire meme dedicated to explaining these astounding shots. What’s even more interesting about this particular shot is that the IS-6 is known to have poor accuracy when fighting from long distance and a low view range, so the fact that Wozihe was able to make the shot in the first place is incredible.

I know I, for one, will be looking into the IS-6 (and other Russian tanks for that matter) a little more closely from now on. Having a tank able to fire a shell and have it land at that range while going those speeds is something I need in my World of Tanks career, though oftentimes it’s the skill and not the game that makes the player. If you’ve got some amazing shots saved that can compete with Wozihe’s own hit, share them in the comments!
