Tank sights on Panzer 4 are shooting off-center and high

This has been an on-going issue for months now.

 

The main gun on the Panzer 4 does not fire at the center of the targeting reticle. Instead, it shoots high and well-above where the user is aiming.

Hum, there might be two things going on here:

  • The sights, when you spawn, are graded for 200 metres. Don't ask me why, it's how it is. You need to readjust them for shorter distances (easiest way is to go into precision mode, look to the floor and press 'Spacebar'). Otherwise you will miss shots.
    • There are stranger things going on when it comes to sights. The PTRS is also graded for 200 meters when you spawn. Good luck hitting anything at that distance.
  • Reto added conefire to all tank guns when they released the 1.22 update (the latest one at the moment of writing this post). It starts being noticeable at 200 meters.

Have you considered any of these @Snow_Sheltie?

I can tell you reticles / aiming systems are currently broken on different weapons. It happens a lot with bazooka's / panzershrecks too. Auto adjusting the sights just makes you miss the targets completely. Happens to different tanks as well... Shells just falling down way before the target of flying above. Not just the PZ4.

 

Reto has been messing around with the code and had no clue of what they were doing AGAIN. Instead of fixing / improving the game they yet again broke a feature that simply worked fine...

Getting repetitive...

It is a fix but at temporary one at that, thank you.

 

The sights continuously default to 400 meters every time a new tank is spawned. The issue still remains that the sights had been auto-adjusted several big updates ago with neither rhyme nor reason and it only exists on the Panzer 4. Every other tank I try out do not default to such a high elevation.
