I just started but am wondering what I should be looking for. Also when it says Partial Mech Salvage does that mean I get the chassis? Showing 1 - 4 of 4 comments. You need 3 units of partial mech salvage, then you'll automatically get the mech itself fully equipped in your mech bay. If you don't have space, the game will prompt you to send either the new mech or an old one into storage.
And as a general rule any mech at the upper end of its weight class is good. Beyond that, just play to your weapon type preference. Fantastic, that's exactly what I was looking for. Though as a tier list, are some Mechs OP in their weight class? Sloul View Profile View Posts. A set amount of parts you can pick yourself, and a set amount which is allocated to you as random.
As for the 2nd example, you'll be able yourself to pick 4 parts among everything that was in place, and on top of it you'll get 15 other pieces given to you randomly from what you didn't pick.
If there are 3 parts of a single mech available after the battle, with the ability to take 4 picks, you'll be able to take those 3 parts among other things. Which would make you the owner of a new Mech. Before you ask: missions are unlimited and generated randomly. I wouldn't say OP, but imo some of them work better than some others. While, I would certainly say that some seem rather weak comparred to the norm. You start the game with 3 very, imo, potent mech for their class: Shadowhawk Vindicator And Blackjack which is already equiped with optimal weaponry imo.

Keep in mind laser vomit with duel cool shot is really strong right now.
As always consider playstyle and this is only a rough guide. I always tweak my builds. For Dakka and Gauss if you want to go the extra mile I recommend a firing macro. I'll link to a Snuggles video which explains how to set this up. Posting a link to the PGI forums on how to run one and set this up for one click gauss rifle fire. If you have any other builds or ideas please post them below in comments.

Unreliable at best, and typically results in a dead shooter more than anything else. Quad LBX 10 on a KDK-3 can be an absolutely destructive brawler that will destroy anything in brawling range, except perhaps an annihilator.

Should call it MEBA most effective build availablebecause builds are not tactics. Dakota View Profile View Posts. Originally posted by WarpSpider :. Last edited by Dakota ; 5 May, pm.

The tank was later sold to the Federated Suns and the Republic of the Sphere for their armed forces' c3 networks units. Also mounted there is a TharHes 7-tubed Multi-Missile Launcher, which has 3 ammunition bins from which to draw different ordnance. The tank has three Coventry Light Autoguns mounted right, left and rear to offer some protection against infantry forces.
In addition to the impressive weaponry, the tank's hull is protected by 19 tons of Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor with CASE integrated into it. The bulk of the tank's armor is placed on its front side with modest protection to is other areas.
This gives the tank the ability to coordinate its actions while disrupting enemy C3 Networks and other advance electronics. Talk Contributions Create account Log in.

You cannot reply to this topic Go to first unread post. Are there any tier lists around that are more up to date than September last year? I enjoy having a good chinwag at well thought out builds, but sadly the most recent, good list is DenAirWalkerr's. I suppose things haven't changed substantially, but like I said it's always interesting to speculate. Posted 08 January - AM Thanks for the list. Currently looking to update the builds of a few mechs and this provide some ideas.
Some builds can drop some sinks and add more lasers. Stealth mechs are stronger, DHL-boats are now much stronger. Posted 08 January - AM I don't agree with this drek but I appreciate your efforts and lists. Posted 08 January - PM RickySpanish, on 08 January - PM, said: I was reasonably certain that a singular sentence topic would surely be read to its fullest by anyone planning to reply.
Reading is fundemental. Posted 08 January - PM No list is perfect, but I think denairwalkerr knows what he is talking about. Posted 10 January - AM The aforementioned tier list still seems largely accurate, it just misses a "ease of use" metric.ALL HEAVY MECHS + WEAPON SIZES! - MECH LAB CHECK - Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries MW5 Beta
And maybe a little clarification of the balance between weight classes. How or where can I use that codes? I am realy interested on skill trees. Mark Community Read Forums Mark all as read.
