So we finally got AA turret options for the Sunderer, both the Walker softpoint turret and the Walker flak turret with the last update.

I'm looking for some input from you guys on what to actually put on mine as I can only afford one set, and reasons as to why choose one gun over the other one. I haven't trialed them yet so I'm curious about the elevation especially, e. g. can you lower them far enough to hit ground vehicles?

Please share your opinions, thoughts and especially arguments pro and contra.

walker can damage air, vehicles and people.


ranger can't damage vehicles. only air

EDIT: Get the A30 Walker its much better than the G40-F Ranger

The G40 is very potent for "close range" antiair, but for allround loadout maybe the walker. I haven't actually tried the walker since gu2 though.

I do believe though, that the very flak-nature of the g40, makes it at much better air-deterrent. Pilots do NOT like flak....even the sound of flak.

Buuut situational choice as always.

I know the Skyguard can put at least a little hurt on vehicles now...wonder if that's also true for the G40...must try. Or did anyone already?

No damage to vehicles. I think, even infantry isnt effected
Its just awesome when the Libs try to escape as fast as possible, when the Ranger hits them.
So only one Ranger max on the Sundy imo.

I've been a gunner for vehicles using both weapons, I prefer using the walker over the ranger any day. The ranger is really just a crap version of a single burster. If it performed on a par with a twin burster MAX, then maybe it would be a viable choice, but right now it is total garbage.

As a pilot I'll say:
if you want to deter air get a the ranger, flak makes most pilots freak out and leave ASAP, it also obstructs the pilot's view.
if you want to kill air probably use the walker, I haven't looked it up but it seems to do more damage, and I believe it isn't effected by composite armor on air. It's also less noticable and the pilot may not notice the amount of damage he's taking until it's too late to get out in time.

I got both.

The Ranger will scare ESFs (and noob liberators) away much faster. Its better to create a no fly zone.
The Ranger is more appreciated by random gunners.
Its better to keep the sundy safe.

The Walker will not scare ESFs as good, but this might be a good thing.
The Walker works against infantry and veichles.
Its better to kill stuff.

Testing in the VR with stationary targetsshows that the Walker will do more damage rhen the G40. The walker inflicts only damage, while the G40 creates small evolutio explosions that should impact sight for the pilot. Since, however, the red triangle is always visible of the enemy was spotted the pilot or gunner can still aim. I hope they will fix this bug, it is so annoying, especially if enemies are behind obstacles.

The 'flak' property and 'scare' factor is what the ranger is all about. Numbers are not irreleveant but they are far from everything in this case. as Peter said above - 'flak' = instaturn and run for any wise pilot not completely sure what the source of the flak is...and you mostly aren't 100% sure.

*FLAKHIT*
Zooba: - OMFG OMFG BURSTERMAX BURSTERMAX MUST AFTERBURN AWAY BEHIND ROCK

Behind the rock i might realize that it was "only" a ranger...but "better safe than sorry" spells survival in the air imo...but maybe that's just me ^^

you can kill enemy pilots at a bigger range with the ranger. you do not need to hit the target exactly as it will do splash dmg if the projectiles get close to the target. this way you can engange enemy air on a much bigger distance.

When running only one AA turret in a mixed setup I definitely suggest using the Ranger due to the psychological effect.

A dual AA turret setup benefits from dual Walkers (provided you have two gunners) as they dish out more damage and are harder to locate due to less visible tracers.

I've been torn apart multiple times by Dual Ranger Sundies.

Okay, the range isn't that impressive but inside that range they do INSANE DAMAGE INSANELY FAST!

Just on the other day I was about to kill an enemy sundy I spotted far away. Went close, and before I was able to empty my Tankbuster into the backside of the sundy, they spotted me; I was dead in seconds - Like two seconds and half of my health was gone, and by the time I was trying to get away it was already too late.
