Tips & Tricks

100 Friends

  • “You cannot add more than 100 contacts” as “friends” :-(.

AAA Guns in Aviation Battles

  • Experts told me, that as of 2020-08, still after 8 years, AAA AI guns may shoot through landscape ( moutains,..) :-(.

Airplane Handling


    • “Nur erklärt das immernoch nicht warum ich beim Tiger II keine Heat nehmen soll und dafür beim Pz IV. Aus welchem Grund ist es beim einen Pflicht und beim anderen nicht?”.
    • “Weil es beim Panzer IV C die beste der dort vorhandenen Granaten ist, auf seinem Tier ist er dort damit ein Tier. Auf den höheren Tiers haben sich die dort herumfahrenden großen Panzer immun gemacht gegen die normale Heat, mit Schürzen, Auflagen oder eben allein durch ihre reine Größe. Da kann es sein, die Heat hat keine Wirkung. Deshalb ist es dort sicherer für den Normalfall die normale AP zu verwenden. Für Spezialfälle, z.B. beim Snipern oder beim notwendigen Durchdringen dicker Panzerungen, gilt dies natürlich nicht. Und die HeatFS ist ein Kapitel für sich”.
    • “Bei den deutschen kann man sagen das man spätestens ab dem Pz IV F2 ersteinmal mit der PzGr39 immer ausreichend gut zurecht kommt. Theoretisch würde man sagen, kommt die PzGr39 mal nicht durch, nimmst du die AP-Munition. Also die PzGr40. Leider zeigt die Erfahrung das diese Munition eher bescheidene Leistungen bringt. Eventuell hat sich das mit der verbesserten Datenlage bei AP-Durchschlag geändert, habs lange nichtmehr getestet. Unterhalb des PzIV F2 sollte man wann immer möglich auf die HEAT zurückgreifen, weil sie dort schlicht die zuverlässigste Granate darstellt”.
    • “Heat lohnt sich nur bei den kleinen Panzer mit Stummelkanone”.

Controller Configuration

Download of Configurations

General tips

  • As of 2016-07-26, I must change the default configuration to set it to the state of pre-2016-07-26:
    • I just called the “control setup wizzard” twice and selected the controller layout “keyboard and mouse only (simple)” both for “air” and “ground”.... best practice is first to set “keyboard and mouse only (advanced)” and then “keyboard and mouse only (simple)”.
    • The resulting properly working settings:
      • “Tank control / Mouse aim”.
        • Zoom Camera: — ( default setting ).
        • Tank: Target tracking: — ( was: “RMB”, press the button “Remove Bindings” ).
      • “View controls / Mouse aim”.
        • Zoom Camera: Y, RMB.

Keyboard and Mouse only

  • Keyboard keys.
    • Keyboard keys of aiplanes:
      • SPACE = Bombs dropping.
      • CTRL = Rockets.
      • Mouse-Righclick = Machinegun / machine cannon.
    • Keyboard keys of both ground vehiceles and airplanes:
      • C, KOMMA(ZEHNERTASTATUR) = Round view. Less important for ground vehicles, totally important for airplanes.

XBox 360 Controller, Keyboard and Mouse

  • War Thunder - Official Forum "Controls configuration (templates) need update!" - My experiences with WT controls configuration for gamepads.
  • Select “XBox 360 Controller, Keyboard and Mouse ( Aim Mode )” by the “Control Setup Wizzard”.
  • Change the settings of “Tank Control”.
    • “Tank throttle” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 2” ⇒ “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 3”.
      • “Invert Axis” = “No” ⇒ “Yes”.
    • “Tank steering” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 1” ⇒ “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 4”.
    • “Fire from the main caliber gun” = ”?:Button 18 (Off)” ⇒ “LMB, J1:Button 5”.
    • “Fire from secondary guns” = “LMB” ⇒ “LMB, J1:Button 5”.
    • “Fire from machine guns” = “LEER” ⇒ “LMB, J1:Button 5”.
    • “Sniper mode” = “J1:Button 16” ⇒ “RMB”.
    • “View in battle - Ground (X-axis)” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 3” ⇒ ””.
    • “View in battle - Ground (Y-axis)” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 4” ⇒ ””.
    • “Invert Y-axis (Tank)” = “No” ( just “Yes” if the gamepad is used for tank aiming ).
  • “Tank aiming (X-axis)” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 3” ⇒ Down:“2 (ZEHNERTASTATUR), Up:“8 (ZEHNERTASTATUR )”.
    • “Tank aiming (Y-axis)” = “J1:USB Game ControllersAxis 4” ⇒ Down:“6(ZEHNERTASTATUR), Up:“4 (ZEHNERTASTATUR )”.
    • “Flyout an fighter” = ”” ⇒ “7”.
    • “Flyout an attacker” = ”” ⇒ “8”.
    • “Flyout an bomber” = ”” ⇒ “9”.
  • Change .the settings of “Common Control”.
    • “Zoom camera” = ” J1:Button 15, 0 (ZEHNERTASTATUR)” ⇒ “0 (ZEHNERTASTATUR), J1:Button 9”.
  • The default directory for WT control settings is “C:\users\<user>\Documents\My Games\WarThunder\Saves” with Unix-like separator ”/” in the in-game menu to save and load control settings. Be shure to give files you want to save, the file extension “blk”, e.g. “impect_controller.blk”.
