New Loyalty Mechs
« on: 16. November 2017, 09:19:42 »
Urbanmech:
Is a real tank. Most play it with SRMs and MRMs, however they are in the arm. It is possible to fit biggest XL Engine, 1x Heavy PPC and 2xML and 4 JJs with still 38% Cooling. Sounds weird, but it works and Heavy PPC sits high in Torso.

Kit-Fox:
Is weird, as the ECM is in the arm. However the Firepower is insane. I run 2x HeavyLL + 2x SRM4 + ECM. Actually still 32% Cooling makes this build insane for its weight and a real killer. 1vs1 against a Nightstar, I won.

Griffin:
Is my favourite mech of the bunch. I run an XL because it has insane armor. I use the one that goes 81 without skills (forgot rating). And then the build is insane, but it works: 2x SRM6+Artemis, 2x SnubNosePPC, 4xLightMG (1Ton Ammo is enough for MG), 3xJJs rest Heatsinks. (Have to strip useless arm and head a bit to make room)
Now this is insane because: You can only shoot the alpha PPCs+SRMs twice. But the damage is enough to open even most assaults in the middle enough to finish them off with your 4 MGs. Took down a Mauler and a Warhammer within 45 seconds. This is so much fun, it is by far my favourite Loyalty mech.

Linebacker:
The Linebacker is shit with its standard OmniPods, so forget the quirks. This is the only Linebacker that has low torse energy mounts... which is shit.
I swapped out the side torsos for some high mount energy and use a 2xERPPC + 4xERSL meta-build, which works as well as it did in any other Linebacker.

Victor:
Now the Victor still has a bug with hitboxes and armor in the side-torsos. So not many play it, since you can get one-shot through the side torsos.
However it may turn out OK. I use a DPS build with 2x Rotary AC/5, 3xERML, TC1 and 4 JJs. Still runs 70+ with Light Engine and decent cooling.
When the hitbox issue is fixed, it will get very good I think.

The real news are the side torsos because they have JJs. lower mounts aren't that of a problem with 6JJs, they are still fairly high.

Biggest problem is the weight of 6tons for the JJs on a Mech that barely has any podspace anyway....the new "Viper Mk II" :)
