Press the number for it.

AP is 1 and HE is 3.

As Gary said... further...

1 - AP
2 - Gold Ammo (if you have any)
3 - HE

Pressing the number of the ammo once, que's the ammo so it loads after your next shot...
Pressing the number of the ammo TWICE unloads and loads the ammo right away...

at the bottom of the screen you have your ammo options, with the numbers over top. 1 for AP, 2 for APCR, 3 for HE, for most tanks.

Since your tank will load with AP first (if you've remembered to load AP rounds  :lol: ) then you want to press 3 twice to switch to your HE (if you've remembered to load HE rounds  :D ) If you press 3 once an HE round will load after you fire the AP round that was already loaded, which is why some people fire off a round right at the beginning of a Battle  <_<

Some tanks/guns don't have all 3 options, only 2, so you can keep track of that in your garage when you're loading ammunition.

If you press the HE button 2x, it'll switch it right then and there for you.

Yup.  Pressing it just once loads HE after you shoot the current round.

Which comes in handy when your up against tanks you can't pen.  Hit it once and switch to HE next shot (cause it takes longer to unload and reload) and HE the guy to get some crit maybe.  I do this alot with my light scouts.  That or if I know my gold ammo might pen I do that switch.

Jesus, people. Why do you need to confirm eachother so much? There's like 4-5 posts saying the exact same thing.  :mellow:

To make sure that the first few posts were read and elaborate on the information further, as well as confirm that the initial information is correct while receiving confirmation from the OP that they have confirmed the information is viable.  :rolleyes:

The thread was over before your contribution.


Thanks for contributing to the community though.
