How I've been playing my Orion recently. Runs nice and cool, deals a great deal of damage, and can soak up quite a bit. Standard engine means you're not dead if you lose a side torso, which adds to its survivability. Stay glued to an Assault, or just make sure you're not the center of attention, and lay down some AC/20 justice. Alt. Config A- For if you want to be closer and give Lights a heart attack.
