Im sick and tired of having NO COUNTER to subs.  Worst then average players playing tier 10 subs. Owning their side of the map.

Players not working together to deal with the subs,  or they are too busy dealing with other ships.

You cant play as a single player in Randoms anymore.

So now that my Rant is over.  

When playing as a single in Randoms, what are the best ships to hunt Subs (if they can).

A Daring with the Slot 4 Depth Charge modification and Extended Hydro Upgrade is a bit deadly. Problem is speed and the sun disengaging. But if you can get on top the sub is gone and the hydro allows you to illuminate the thing for others.

Any dd with hydro is a good counter to sub. Sub are easy to fight once you know there machines.  there are lots of guides on youtube.

Tier 10 subs are too fast.  Been trying the Daring.  Still not a LEGIT counter.  

Try Cossack

Things that help...
~Player situational awarenes.  [Check?  Check!  Okay, good.]
~Being able to maneuver well, (speed and turning radius and rudder-shift time).
~Hydro-acoustic search consumable, useful but not strictly necessary.
~Air-strike depth-charges offer some flexibility for hull positioning and the capability to "reach-out" and depth charge a Submarine. 
   But, in a pinch, one can maneuver alongside or on-top of a Submarine to depth-charge it with stern-launched depth-charges.
~Understanding of how the homing-torpedoes work, and how they can be dodged.  
    @Ahskance has created a few videos on his youtube channel regarding this.  Here's a link to one of them.  https://youtu.be/U1hL9yioEF0

If one wants an "Easy Button", then go to the Staples office supplies store.

Uh, yeah you can play in randoms buddy. There's a distinct difference in there being no counter to something and you not being able to think of a counter to something. Let me give you a few examples of great sub counters.

Forrest Sherman and Z-52 are the most notable ones with their insane amounts of depth charge drops as well as their ability to use hydro and catch the submarine. Gearing and literally any other DD that has good max depth charge damage around 5000. Most American battleships have great ASW as well as any ship with radar to catch a submarine that may be surfaced or on periscope depth.

Does this satisfy your needs?

I just killed 2 subs in 1 battle.

I'm sorry, but I just don't get the whining.

That is the very last thing I will say on this topic.

Any sub on surface or periscope depth does it full speed. For German sub are slower then usa sub by a bit.  And can be detected by hydro. Once under 30m to max depth there speed is half. I wish they would increase the Dearing hydro to 5km

At least at mid tiers, Italian DDs are great at it. Their charge smoke lets them close on the sub without being shot, their speed gets them there before the sub can run, and their DCs can usually one-shot the subs.

Unfortunately, it’s one of the only things they’re good at.

I've been sunk once by a sub in my Massachusetts and have sunk about 20 of them. This will probably change as players become better in subs though.

This playerbase has never been into that stuff, and it doesn't start with subs.

See all the people raging about DDs/HE spam since 2015.

If the forumposting playerbase is to be believed, this game has been dying since 2015 and has been killed with every now major update.
