Description[edit source]

The M8 Greyhound is a small armored car used primarily for reconnaissance. It is fast in rough terrain and with a 37mm main gun it packs a serious punch for such a small vehicle. It is very vulnerable to landmines.

  • Recon vehicles benefit from infantry perks such as fast reload which grants 40% reload increase as well as infantry first which increases soft target damage by 50% amongst which everything under light tanks counts although not enough to 1 OHK cars since recon cannon damage is reduce by 25%.
  • Be careful, you can easily be shot/sniped out of the drivers seat.
  • Your armour is lighter but you are quicker. Avoiding enemy tanks is the best policy (flight rather than fight).
  • Watch out for the SdKfz-222, this vehicle can easily kill you in one clip.
  • Never park out in the middle of a field unless the enemies are out of tanks and/or SdKfz's.
  • The Soviet Reconnaissance vehicle, the BA-64B is not a relevant threat for the M8 Greyhound.
  • The Soviet BA-6 is a much greater threat than the BA-64B, It boasts an armament comparable to your own. Be sure to control the engagement if you encounter one.
