On the front of hull, aim for the machine gun hole on its right side (your left if facing it)

If it has the upgraded turret, aim for the "ears" on each side

Tracks (first wheel and last wheel)

And when facing it on the sides and rear aim for........the sides and rear.

Hope this helped.

WG are hopefully getting rid of those ears hitboxes soon, so dont expect to last long.

The ear hit is very difficult to pull off at any range <this spot reserved for all the "I hit it all the time" comments> on a moving tank with a moving turret :lol:

I've had two "ear" hits, i think, and they didn't do much damage.

You are better off shooting at virtually anything that is *not* the turret.

The sides and back of the turret are vulnerable if not angled. For the stock gun though it might be a bit thick.

i aim at the hull and tracks, but if u see only the turret (and the turret is upgraded) aim for the small squares on the top... they hve like no armor there  :Smile-izmena:

Another question as well...

Is the total lack of armor on the "ears" of the T29 being looked into? I don't mind it being a weakspot but the fact that all 1,210 HP of the T29 can be taken by shooting only the ears on the turret is buth unrealistic, hard to believe even in a video game, and pretty much negates the purpose of having a high armored turret.

It seems more realistic that the upgraded turret with ears would take a small, set amount of damage before no more HP can be lost from enemies firing at the ears. That OR the armor of the ears isn't effectively zero.

The "ears" are not the part of the hitbox anymore.

Go here:

http://forum.worldof...eloper-answers/

And do a search for "ears" in that topic.

they're getting rid of the ears hitbox so the noobs don't follow people's advice on the forum and shoot at it from 500 meters.

Do not aim at tracks. You do not do any damage there, unless you want it to be de-tracked. Hull is a big weak spot. Though try to aim at side or rear if you can; the front is sloped and my Sherman's 76mm can't penetrate it from about 100m and more. The turret is not an option. Do not shoot there. Hope this helps.

And as always, have a nice day!
