    the medium laser is a classic for a reason, it's cheap, plentiful, durable and you can get it everywhere.

    the Wang is not that far off stock tho, consider it's "just" a autocannon swap to a low calibre AC-20 (the Pointiac 100 Allard used is "only" a 120-130mm gun but fires a enormous ammo "cassette" at a very high ROF, compared to the "middle of the road" Chemjet AC/20 on the Behemoth that burst fires 185mm shells, or the 250mm Kali Yama Big bore, that's more a howitzer than a cannon but fires in single shots)

    the underlying chassis can take the swap as well, the CN9-AH drops the lasers for a AC/20 in the arm, probably a Luxor Devastator-20, same gun as on the Axman.

    the ca. 3050 rebuild is basically a one-off custom job by the WDR, who at the time are, without a doubt, the premier high tech manufacturers of the sphere, they where literately building Dire Wolves on Outreach and handing them out for fucks sake.

    GYROS!

    +3 Hit Defense or -30% Stability Damage?
    Which is your preferences?

    Also a new ludicrous mode mission.
    Attack and Defend base and a triple faction shoot out.

    Not getting hit in the first place means less stab damage.

    Yeah. But it's hard to tell its effect on an assault.
    You are hard capped to 95% hit ratio, -15% and they can still hit you with 95% accuracy if they have that much additional accuracy lying around.

    depends, a jumpy assault like the cheatlander gets the hit defence gyro, if you've got a lot of stability damage on it, you're going to go to ground and stabilize anyway, a plodding assault that doesn't rely on mobility gets the stab damage one.

    same logic applies to heavies, and mediums get fuck all because they're just fodder.

    basically, how many evasion pips do your mechs get ? more than three regularly ? hit def, if not, stab gyro.

    as a side note, you can now have Mech followers in Fallout 4, because of course you can.

    and yes, you can scale them to liberty prime size as well, and yes, that trash can sized urbanmech is adorable.

    Last night I encountered a Urban Warfare Flashpoint, quite fun story.
    Huge fan of Flashpoints now.

    The Epic Store is amazing, I've been able to save so much money by not buying their games.

    Sounds fun, could be exactly what was missing for me.

    Are the DLCs mandatory for it? I still havent accepted the pricing.

    Flashpoints really fun, but you got to be able to deploy 2 Lances for some of them.
    Armor and ammo is replenished, but no time to repair damage.

    UW is hard, tough fighting in cities.

    Pffft!

    Look in Bay 3, I got 3 skinnies and one famished mech there.


    My Missile-Boat Atlas is rad.
    2x LRM20 and 2x LRM15 all launchers with +2dmg and +50% crits.
    Potentially 420 in alpha damage.

    Might drop it down to just 8tons of ammo for another LRM5.

    that's not famished, that's underaged.

    We were talking about the Body Fat Index, not age.
    Children can do a job just as well as adults, more time to save up a good pension, and less loans for education. Win on all the fronts.

    Not been able for find last piece for a new Fire Starter.
    Light drop restricted Flash Points got a 240t lance limit.
