Seems like a lot of players think the artillery truck is useless and the only thing people do in them is farm infantry kills. That's true, but it can be so much more effective. Whenever I get in one I feel like my main responsibility is to take out enemy tanks. After that, its playing the objective. I bet my vehicle vs vehicle kdr is something like 25:1.
I have my PS4 record settings to last 10 minutes so here is a sample of my artillery truck gameplay. I don't remember what happened before or after those 10 minutes, but I felt like I was having a good game so I just randomly saved a clip. I would say this is pretty common/on the good side.
- 19 total kills
- heavy tank with main gun
- another heavy tank with main gun
- a landship with mines
- a heavy tank with mines
- 1 roadkill
- disabled a heavy tank (think I ultimately got it with the mines later)
- helped kill another landship (did most of the damage)
- killed a calvary unit
- helped kill another heavy tank (did most of the damage)
- killed a sentry
- destroyed an AA (guy was shooting infantry with it)
I love hunting vehicles and the artillery truck is one of the best tools to do that. If you use one, make sure you make use of those mines too! If you are taking an objective back, put some down on the way out. Also destroy any cover the enemy could use to their advantage. The artillery truck is also the best anti sniper tool in the game. All these things combined can really help your team.
The other day I was hunting a level 100 tanker coward (almost 9 million tanker score) and he would not come out of hiding. I had about 15 roadkills cause I was driving around all over the place looking for him. If you are careful with the routes you take, this thing is like an armored horse.
