Strategies[edit | edit source]

Overview:

The Big Berta is a pretty powerful weapon in Battle Bay. However, it is also a hard-to-hit weapon. Pairing it with a Cannon will usually be a "lifesaver", because of the high cooldown. Be aware though, the slow projectile speed will make Speeders and fast-moving Enforcers a pretty annoying nuisance to deal with. It is useless at long range, because a long range weapon that was meant to be a short-range one will be pretty much useless, because the slower the projectile speed, the more you're gonna have to focus.

Using frost with it is also a wise decision, since frost chains very well with the Berta's enormous base damage. Speeders can utilise the Berta to great effect at MK6, using the Frost Launcher as a two slot point yellow item.
