MG 151 severely nerfed?

Hey guys, 

since a few weeks the MG 151/20 doesn't do any damage whatsoever and 9/10 shots spark.

Has it been nerfed again?

I'm mostly flying my Fw190A5/U2 these days. x2 151/20 and that's it.

 

I didn't noticed any change : When on my region's servers (ping<60) 151/20 are Death Star death-ray grade weapons. When on an other region's servers (ping>120) i get some armeless "hit" markers.

 

My biggest concern when i use 151/20 is my own gunnery skill. I'm not a good shot.

Few weeks more like the entire history of war thunder!

 

Jokes aside cannons are either death rays or multiple "hit"

I play with 290ms ping to US and 350ms to EU and I have no issues with 151s. It's either they hit and boom boom or I miss.

Sparkanos are still sparkanos. Kek.

You're kidding right?

Do you need leading indicator as well?

MG151s are one of the best if not THE best cannons in game

I still have no problem with MG151/20 on ping up to 300.  They are still death lasers and in terms of damage output I'd take them over AN/M2 20mm.

 

Hispanos work okay for me up to ping of around 200, then they turn into a spark fest.

20mm Mineshells are rediculous in terms of damage. One hit and RIP wing or tail.

I used the tracer belt for the Hs 129 B2 for attacking open top SPAA but a few days ago when I was trying to shoot down a LaGG 3 it took ages for me to kill him.

I set him on fire and hit him multiple times but the FI-T and IT rounds deal hardly any damage.

If I was using air-target belt, he would have been dead the moment I first opened fire at him.

 

Unfortunately WT doesn't put much effort into making the game realistic. As long as the game works it seems to be good enough.

Mineshells should hardly create any fragmentation and therefore the FI-T would be ideal for attacking open top vehicles.

However the fragmentation damage is so little that only direct hits are deadly to crew anyway :dntknw:

Sparking only happens if I actually HIT the shot mister...

Yesterday I fired two micro-bursts into P-61

I ripped of both of his wings and tail

 

I think MG151 is working more than well

Hispano MKII on the other hand is crying in corner

Well, I think this post should already be closed, because it does not contribute anything real, it's like saying that before the mg151 killed with one shot and now it needs two shots to kill.

Nah. You simply hit a plane with I-T bullets :D they have different velocity than Minengeschoss so when your tracers are in target - main blasting force doesn't. Also I-T bullets have one com - they act like ordinary ball rounds because Gaijin and this is common in MG 151/20 and MK 108 autocannons.

 

 

You see hit and nothing really happened? Don't worry, that's not ninja NERF - only tracers.

Well it seems like I was just too stupid to aim with the Fw 190 lol.

Switched to the Bf 109 and noscope blast manouvering Spitfires 800m away to the hangar :)

I noticed lately that my shots spark a ton too. a head on with a spray of ~100 rounds and literally every single one sparked. Not even a "Hit"
