Strategies and Tactics to win at Battleship

Here are the most valuable strategies and tactics you will need to maximize your chances of sinking your enemy's fleet.

Maximizing your chances of a hit when starting a game

Shooting at the center of the grid maximizes your chances of hitting a ship. Targeting only odd or even squares reduces the number of turns for a potential hit since ships cover at least two squares. To keep visualizing even and odd squares, draw an imaginary even diagonal line from the bottom left to the upper right corner. If you start by missing more than twice, choose an area in another section: you will have more chances to get a hit.

Targeting effectively

Once you have a hit, start targeting around the area. If you miss the first time, target the opposite square. When the first ship is sunk, repeat the strategy of aiming toward the center of the grid.
