Whether it's Glitch's starting mech or the medium you run in Career Mode, the Vindicator can be a strong platform in the early game, and is perfect for finishing off damaged or downed enemies. It can even be useful in the mid-game as a scout. Adjustment: Scale down to SRM4 to add one HS. Pros: Considerably more survivable than stock, Alpha dmg can be 150+ Cons: No Long-Range, no shield arm, head slot used, wants for another HS. This build shown using standard equipment. Using + or ++ can significantly increase effectiveness, but those arms only have 70 armor each, max. I like this forum for reference, and thought I'd round out the lesser-represented mechs. Stock Vindicator isn't as much fun as this one.
