What's are some fast firing BB tiers 5-10? Obviously the reload boosts can help, but how does it weigh in overall for the RoF over the course of a battle?

Bismarck(25s), KGV(25s), DOY(29.5s), Scharn(20s), Lyon(30s). Those are what i usually use!

I'm not really sure because there are a few factors.

Rate of fire definitely plays a part. Obviously the newest battleships with 40 second reload wont do.

You should also consider accuracy overall. A non pen or shatter is a hit but a miss is a miss.

Totally number of guns also players a part.

I think princess_daystar's suggestions are good choices.

I did it in Thunderer in co-op. She has a fast rate of fire, and equally importantly, she is more accurate. You can't miss fast enough to complete the task. I was averaging about 50 hits per game.

French and German dispersion is too poor for reliability in putting up lots of hits. I would start with HE spam and then went to AP on broadsides if it started to look like I needed to carry instead of just farming hits.

I recommend patience - the following group of quests won't open until Monday.

 

I fully expect to get that 900 sometime Sunday afternoon.

Scharnhorst would probably be your best bet, the 11" guns reload very fast and you get 9 of them.

Jean Bart - Fast base reload, can use 8 guns all the time, booster.

Scharn and Odin - Small caliber quick reload.

Thunderer, good ROF and accuracy.

Japanese or fast American Tier VIII-X (good accuracy to long range).

I’m focusing this mission along with the strasgurg missions “x45 fires / cits in BB and x 5 wins and the Hizen one for 20 top five finishes. Just in coop. I ran through both of them in 10 games, landed somewhere around 600 hits total and most of them top 5. I’ll do it again tomorrow and be done with stras + 900 hit and top 20 in about an hour. Play smarter not harder. 🤣

In the past, for this sort of mission, I used Scharnhorst.

Dunkerque and Strasbourg are options.

I didn't have Thunderer, when I last did this sort of mission.  So, I suppose she's a contender, too.

Good luck.  :-)

any bb that had lots of guns

 

t5: NY, Oktob. Revol,

t6: Fuso

t7: scharn

Or Brit BB because I can also do the 45 fire chances/cit hits mission at the same time, for example  :)

This is my approach. The hits and fire/cit missions synergize great.

The hard mission was 21 million potential damage in a cruiser.  I just completed it, but spent a lot of time on it. 

Edit:  Oh yeah, I used Odin for the 900 hits mission.  That one went much faster.

Scharnhorst, in Co-Op, and shoot HE. I was able to pick up around 50 hits per (quick) match.

Lyon or Fuso are good choices. Lots of rifles, decent reloads. Fuso is one of my favourite BB's in the game. I kept her and I kept Lyon. 

Lyon fires 16 guns , you'll get a LOT of hits if you have decent aim.

Right now, I’m using Richelieu/Soyuz/some Kansas just because I’m grinding them anyway, and I know they’ll complete by the end of the week (it’s the only one I have left for the stage and I’m already at 400/900 after two days). If I wasn’t grinding battleships now, my go-to picks for main battery hits would be JB (and now Bourgogne), Thunderer, Georgia, and Scharnhorst (with some Odin rounds mixed in). Strasbourg would be another option now too since it has a decent reload and the booster on top of that, but the guns don’t feel as consistent as JB and Bourgogne to me.

If you're doing the fires/cits mission too, Conqueror with MBM3 for faster reload may be worth considering too.

Tnx everyone. I'll see where I'm sitting later in the week. But as I have a lot of options I'm sure I'll be good. I was just kind of curious if there was some "surprise" ship or two that stand out as particularly great for it.

This would be the last mission to get into Dockyard next stage. But that wont be available for 5 more days. SO I did about 100 BB rounds hit today and continue that pace give or take the rest of the week. I don't try to do those large heavy lift missions in one day. The thunderer, Pomm, Hood etc. there is a bunch of BB's that will dispose of that mission in time.
