Ricochet is the most versatile gun in Tanki Online. Though as opposed to all other tier 2 weapons it has no mass damage, Ricochet is still one of the most effective tank turrets for both DM and CTF modes. It inflicts massive damage to one target, easily steals frags from its rivals and it is perfect for fast killing both enemy tanks with any long range guns, and enemy Isidas and Freezes from safe distance. Ricochet also has two distinctive features: it has moderate recoil and huge physical effect on enemy tanks, and its charges bounce off obstacles. Combined with advanced homing system this gives Ricochet player a visible advantage.
A perfect combination of massive damage and medium range.
Ricochet is perfect for both DM and CTF modes. Medium range of fire helps Ricochet killing defending Freezes from safe distance and use ricochets for its own advantage in urban warfare.
Shots per tank:
Charges bounce off obstacles
Firing range: under 60 m — 100%, after 80 m — 0%
Best matching hulls for mounting Ricochet
Ricochet requires high-stability tank hulls, which means that Dictators and Hornets are not the best choices.
Viking is the best possible choice for designing an assault tank for CTF mode. Perfect for both capturing and delivering enemy flags, and for returning own flag.
Of course Mammoth is not for attacking enemy base in CTF mode, but it is still good for Deathmatches. As for defending the base it looks like Thunder, Freeze and Shaft are better choices.
Ricochet: PROs and CONs
Ricochet is versatile and obviously overpowered.
The best tank gun for returning own flag.
Ricochet effectively kills Isidas and Freezes from safe distance.
Aiming moving targets from a distance is tricky.

hey, man im a 2 lieutenant, but i want a paint as soon as possible, but i still have viking m1, the paint i want is needl and i use the combo viking ricochet, should i upgrade viking or buy nnedle first?
Thunder or Ricochet? I got Viking m2 with thunder m2 but I'm a 4th warrant officer who plays CTF allot in the offensive role in the maches just to help my team capers with the flags, in other words I need to kill 2-4 guys fast (drugs optional)
Answer: Ricochet is better if you wanna capture flags yourself. If you see yourself as a supporter for those capers, there's no much difference, both guns are great.
