    Slot-perfect variation on the popular SPLAT assaults. High LBX20 mean you may want to invest in magazine skills.

    Feel free to destroy slot perfection by exchanging DHS for ammo too, it's a really cold build in this iteration and I've run out of ammo 2 out of 5 matches. Currently only 24 shots for dual lbx20 and 20 shots for 3xsrm6.


    My Artemis variation (mentioned adaptation in comments!)

    Not sure I like the idea of cSRM6es without Artemis

    I like it better than spending 67% extra tonnage trying to fix spread that's going to suck anyway, especially if it's not the main weapon.

    If you want artemis, cut some DHS.

    Artemis got nerfed a while back and I've not really bothered putting it on SRMs since. If I used lurms I would probably artemis them.

    IS srm6+a is worth it imo, but not for clans.

    5/5,
    Point and explode. Works quite well and is definitely a fun build.

    5/5,
    This config didn't work as well for me until I put in Artemis. After that, it performed great!

    My issue with clan srms with artemis is purely an efficiency one :)

    for IS SRM6: you're adding 1/1 ton/slots on a 3/2 ton/slots weapon, so a 33% increase in weight and 50% increase in size.
    for Clan SRM6: you're adding 1/1 t/s on a 1.5/1 t/s weapon, so a 67% increase in weight and 100% increase in size.

    I think the latter, while artemis does improve the performance of the SRMs individually, makes the SRM6s much harder to fit in as a support weapon for the dual LBX20, since you're spending 7.5/6 t/s instead of 4.5/3 t/s, and will have to compromise in either heat efficiency or ammo (the latter is already quite low). But, it's undeniably a deadlier build in terms of focused firepower.
