The Game Plan: Immortals’ E 100 Tank Guide

In other languages: th zh-tw ja

Welcome to The Game Plan! Fancy being able to take the hits, and return them in more than equal measure? The German-made E 100 is a large and fearsome opponent in the field at close quarters, but playing it well requires smart use of its imposing armour. Let the Immortals show you how in this nifty guide!

Guide Contents


  • Great Firepower: The 15cm KwK L/38 cannon packs a phenomenal 750 alpha damage per shot - highest damage per shot among all Tier X Heavy tanks (only the VK72.01(K) has the same caliber), and on par with most Tank Destroyers.
  • The huge caliber also helps over-match the weak points of other tanks.
  • Solid armor: Strong armor all around. Big side skirts working as both track cover and space armor make the E 100 a great sidescraper.
  • Large amount of HP: 2700 HP makes up the third-largest HP pool in WoT. Only the Maus and Type 5 Heavy have a bigger HP pool.
  • Acceptable mobility for Heavy tank: The E 100 can keep up with other heavy tanks like the IS-7, T110E5 and FV215B, despite its weight.
  • Especially strong with 3 E 100s combined together.
  • Large size: Despite the cons for its size, the E 100’s high profile and huge caliber help over-match the roof armor of most tanks.
  • Large ammo capacity: You'll never run out of ammo with the E 100!
  • Large tracks can absorb HE and cover weak lower glacis when angled.
  • Large size: This, along with its bad camo rating, make it an easy target for arty.
  • Bad mobility: Slow turret traversal, slow traverse speed – a downgrade compared to its predecessor E 75.
  • Mediocre accuracy: Long reload and aiming time limit its gun’s effective use to close-quarters fighting.
  • Confused ammo choice: Poor AP penetration; a lot of high-tier tanks have spaced armor which negates the effect of HEAT shells. HE spamming however is surprisingly good in some situations.
  • Long reload time, low DPM.
  • Large vulnerable lower glacis with a frontal mounted transmission – hitting this lower glacis may damage the engine, thus reducing the mobility of the E 100.

Weak Spots

  • Most tanks can penetrate the viewport marked A1
  • The part marked A2 has strong armor, but as it’s almost flat, it may be an easy target for high penetration shells
  • The Upper Front Glacis is nearly immune to penetration
  • The Lower Front Glacis is the most vulnerable part



Sidescraping is a good tactic: Hide most of the front of your tank, only expose its sides at a small angle against your target, and never show the flat front of your turret to enemies with high penetration. 

  • Only turn the turret to face enemies when shooting.
  • NEVER expose the whole hull in defensive position; the lower front glacis is an easy target for other tanks.


  • Trading shots is also a viable tactic as the E 100 boasts a high alpha damage gun and large HP pool. But remember: make every shot count!




  • Choose your movements carefully; heavy tanks are slow and vulnerable in the open. It’s hard to change your flank.
  • Utilize cover for better protection against enemy firepower – try using houses, tank wrecks, rocks, obstacles or terrain. The E 100 has good armor, but it’s not indestructible!
  • Always keep your turret and your hull angle against the target. About 15 to 30 degrees is a good angle.
  • Try turning your tank when enemies are trying to shoot at you.
