Shoot early and often
Ah yes, this is always something that's a lot of fun to do. In World of Tanks Blitz, it's a good idea to shoot as often as you can at your targets. Why is this so important when it seems blatantly obvious? That's because there is a cool-off period before you can fire again.
So basically, as soon as that cool-off is done, then fire again as soon as possible. Most tanks have decent health bars, so it could take several hits to destroy them. That's why it's important to keep on swinging until they go down. Just make sure to follow them if they move.
But be careful, as you don't want to make yourself too vulnerable while you are blasting away at enemy tanks. Your best bet is to be near a teammate who can give you some extra eyes and bail you out. If separated from teammates, just keep your eyes peeled and then move out of the way the enemy is near you.
Use the sniping feature to your advantage
The sniping feature in the game is huge if you use it at the right times. It allows you to scope in on enemies from afar This is nice since you can keep your distance and still fire away. It also can catch enemies off guard as they may be focused on others while you shoot away from long-range.
If you are in a comfortable spot, this feature will do wonders for you. However, as mentioned in our previous tip, it's always important to pay attention to your surroundings. You're especially leaving yourself open when in scope mode. Not to mention that players will get notified when you're nearby too.
So just be smart out there by getting yourself in a position where you won't be as open. Move spots if you need to because enemies will try to hide behind things if they know you're shooting at them. On many occasions though, they are too distracted, shooting at one of your teammates. So use the scope, and pounce on.
Aim for the weak points
OK, so it's not as easy as just hitting any area of the enemy tanks. It's best to know which areas will do the most damage. You can't just fire at the front or rear and expect damage to be taken easily. You may do a teensy bit but that's about it. Your best bet is to try and go for the sides of the tanks.
In many instances, these are the weak spots. And if you're lucky, your opponent will be facing in another direction, exposing their sides. You will deal a lot more damage by doing this although it won't lead to a quick kill. It will still take some shots, but be patient, and you get the satisfaction of destruction.
But even if they decide to turn where only their stronger points are exposed, keep firing anyway. Every little bit of damage helps. It's just that, when they turn sideways, it's time for you to fully unleash. Aim and go crazy.
Don't be afraid to be defensive
As much fun as it is going in guns blazing, there's nothing wrong with playing it safe too. There are several obstacles you can take cover behind if you wish. It might be a good idea to hide, peek out and shoot and then rinse and repeat. This is great if you want a more conservative approach.
It also may be wise to stay close to a teammate or two. They can help you defeat enemy tanks quicker if you shoot together. They also can keep an eye out for other enemies who may be trying to sneak their way to your location for close combat. You never know which opponent will be aggressive or not.
If all of your team is together then that's fine, but splitting up works very well too. If you have to stay at a post and another two go wander out, it could help you defeat the enemy tanks faster. This because they like to split up too (for the most part but it just depends). Everyone on your team can hunt and take down enemies at the same time by approaching things this way.
At the end of the day though, it's all up to you how you want to approach it. Now get out there, tank soldier.
