View Full Version : [Bug?] Does Axis have some Artillery that I never heard of?
1st Sep 07, 9:24 PM
Ok I was playing as Americans vs PE and Wehrmacht with a friend....
What happens is I'm in a battle right with tanks and troops etc. Then all of a sudden an "artillery strike" hits my tank dead on and it causes havok.
But there is no smoke, no warning, no sound, and I dont see any projectile. And I check the map and they do not have the PE artillery unit.
So, does some PE doctrine have some kind of artilllery that I dont know about? Cause this happened at least 5 times in the game. And it was ultra accurate every time, big explosion, no warning, no sounds, no smoke.....I've never seen it before. Really really frustrating, I'm not sure if its a bug??
Comments and Info would be appreciated. Thanks!

were your speakers on? your speakers could've been off and it could've been a v1 that was constantly spammed against you.
the only artillery unit i can think of for the PE is the hummel. not counting the mortar halftrack [which isn't really considered as artillery].
and i think that the nebel still has that annoying sound, along with the stuka's original sounds.
another possibility is that it was a king tiger, just beyond the fog of war. and by the time you checked to see what hit your unit the king tiger faded back into the fow.

You sure it wasn't a teller mine?

I would suspect that what you were hit by was Scorched Earth ability Sector Artillery.

probably a teller mine, yeah. they hurt tanks. a lot.

I had my speakers on loud. And this created A big explosion, but it was extremely accurate every time and it was not just against tanks it was against infantry also. It was not a v1 because it was so accurate. Like if I went into a battle and I stood still for a second this "thing" would hit me.
Does the Scorched Earth Artillery have warning or smoke? This had none.

nope, no warning or smoke. Just the flat pounding sound of artillery with big fucking explosions afterwards. I believe it was sector artillery.

That would be Sector Artillery, an ability for the SE doctrine for the Panzer Elite at the end of one of their trees. Basically, it covers a sector and any Allied unit that comes in gets hit by artillery dead-on with no smoke warning.

I've yet to try this ability out but it sounds awesome :) Been using the Hummel instead. So much fun giving Allies a taste of their own medicine!! :D

Ok thanks for the explanation. I thought I was going crazy or it was a bug or something. Glad to know it is a new ability! Pretty cool ability I'd say, it was kicking my ass nonstop!

Do you require LOS for sector artillery to work?
i tried it, but saw no explosions.. then again.. i didn't know what it was doing.. and also i moved away so i couldn't see thru fog of war..
but sometimes i see explosions anyway in fog, so i thought icould see it..

sounds like scorched earth sector artillery ability

The sector being watched turns yellow on the minimap, I think even the enemy can see it, though it can be hard to notice.
