World of Warships: New Pan-American Cruisers Coming to Early Access Next Week

Update 12.2
Update 12.2 Wargaming Studios

Players can get their hands on the new Pan-American Cruisers in World of Warships when they arrive in early access next week.

The new cruisers are equipped with armor-piercing shells with enhanced ricochet angles. While they don’t offer much in terms of offense compared to their counterparts, they do have some tricks up their sleeves.

For example, Tier VI Pan-American cruisers and above have access to Combat Instructions. Activating such increases their consumable cooldown speed, allowing them to use consumables more frequently than other ships.

Speaking of consumables, the new cruisers have nifty consumables at their disposal, including Repair Party (Tier II), Specialized Repair Teams (Tier VI), and Surveillance Radar (Tier VIII).

Here’s a rundown of the new cruisers coming to early access next week:

  • Tier II Almirante Barroso
  • Tier III Vicente Guerrero
  • Tier IV Córdoba
  • Tier V La Argentina
  • Tier VI Almirante Cochrane
  • Tier VII Coronel Bolognesi
  • Tier VIII Ignacio Allende
  • Tier IX Santander
  • Tier X San Martin

These new cruisers are perfectly suited for more aggressive styles of play. Continuously firing at enemy ships ensures that players have Combat Instructions active, allowing them to use Specialized Repair Teams more often, so they do not have to worry too much about suffering heavy damage from enemy fire because they can just restore HP anyway.
