Shell Grouping (Sigma) vs Dispersion

Ellipse and shell hit patterns Definition
FiringGuns ellipse.png Ellipse - A gun salvo of 3 turrets with 3 guns each (3x3) fires 9 shells total. The accuracy of those 9 shells hitting your target is based on an ellipse around the target. Each turret has its own ellipse. For simplification, these images illustrate all 3 turret shells in one ellipse...
FiringGuns DreamShot.png Dream Shot - This is how you think the shells are going to hit every time. But no, that's not going to happen.
FiringGuns StandardShot.png Standard Shot - The shells location will vary based on your ship's specifications, RNG, and the target ships specifications; the shells can hit anywhere within the ellipse.
FiringGuns GroupedShot.png Increased Shell Grouping (Sigma) - The shells tend to hit closer to the middle point of the ellipse, but they can still fall anywhere within it.
  • Andrew Cunningham - Concentrated Devastation: Increase shell grouping of battleship's main guns
FiringGuns DispersionShot.png Reduced Dispersion - The shells hit within a reduced ellipse size.
  • Azur Lane Scharnhorst - Sniper: Decrease dispersion of main battery
FiringGuns GroupedDispersionShot.png Increased Shell Grouping and Reduced Dispersion - The shells hit within a reduced ellipse size and tend to hit closer to the middle of the smaller ellipse.
  • Andrew Cunningham - Concentrated Devastation: Increase shell grouping of battleship's main guns
  • Azur Lane Scharnhorst - Sniper: Decrease dispersion of main battery
