How many players can join the battle?

Can I sell my ships?

Yes. Right-click the ship icon and select the desired option.

What are consumables?

In combat, any ship module can become critically damaged, any compartment can catch fire or become flooded after the torpedo hit. To fix, put fires or patch the hull you should have proper consumables aboard: repair kit, fire extinguisher or a hull patch. Ship’s consumables stock can be refilled by visiting the “Service” tab. Before decisive battles, do not forget to equip your ship with everything you need!

Is it possible to fire a salvo from all the guns?

At the moment, it is impossible, but it is possible to turn all guns in one direction while holding the G key.

How to dive and surface in a submarine?

Dive – F, Surface – R.

Is there a target locking or lead indicator?

Yes, we have target locking for guns and lead indicator for torpedoes. You should keep the target in sights and press the right mouse button.

Torpedoes don’t seem like they do enough damage. Why?

In GunFleet we try to balance between realism and playability. The damage from torpedoes is decreased as the inevitable measure to balance the gameplay. We believe that instakill torpedoes and realistically limited torpedo quantity (1-2 torpedoes on most of the ships in the game) would substantially harm the gameplay.

What you can buy in the game for real money?

Firstly you can buy gold – the in-game currency that can be spent to buy a premium account, premium consumables, equipment, to speed-up the game progress and to customize the looks of your ship. Over time, we plan to make most premium items available for in-game progress – and now you can earn gold in-game, by completing different tasks.
