    updated after latest Patch! Downgraded from ERPPCs to cooler PPCs due to the massive Heat Nerf on ERPPCs. But the main Idea remains the same and should work with similar results. Just needs to get a bit "closer". ;)

    Dude I hadn't even seen this... but... yeah.

    This is a mech that marches to the rhythm of victory!

    Essentially an inverse build of the Soy Sauce 3.0 Cataphract. Instead of ERPPC it goes PPC and instead of LLas it goes ERLLas.

    2 JJ is decent and a XL300 gives awesome speed and torso twist speed for this type of mech. Impressive. Won't rate it since I didn't try it (yet) but I can say that probably easily 4 stars.

    yeah, i played this build before with ERPPCs+ERLLas before the Nerf came in last Patch, and it worked well as you can see in my testruns. The Good Thing is - all Weapons are in the Torso, so even if you lose the Arms (what you will), you still can keep the Firepower and that with still 16 DHS!

    This looks good, but for 13.5 mil, is it significantly better than the Stock K2 which also has twin PPCs?

    So how do you manage your vulnerability to Light mechs? Curious.

    This is a specific Sniper.Role.Build. For Lights you need some Teammates to defend you, so don't stay too far from the mob. Or you could try to kill those Lights with one blast, just needs to be an excellent Skillshooter. ;)

    I've been struggling to find a build I like for my Founder mech. I think I found it :cool:

    Personally I find this wep combo to be one of the best light-smashers available in a Sniper config'd heavy mech.

    For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op0GHL5WV44

    You can throw big pinpoint and hitscan with the LL if necessary.

    added two alternate versions for 1. higher sDPS and 2. more Range by "inverting" the weapons :rolleyes:

    Blagg, I've finally gotten around to trying out this build, and even in my ghetto version (which has only 19 DHS and leaves 2.5 tons free because I'm too cheap to ditch Endo-Steel), this build rocks. For some reason I can't get the CTF-3D Soy build to work for me, but on this chassis it just works. I wonder if there is some sort of psychological effect where enemies just assume you're an LRM boat due to the chassis choice, so get confused when you rock them with 29 points of direct fire damage.

    I'm very glad that this build works for you. When i came up with this crazy idea, i was myself wondering that it worked pretty powerful as you can see in my testruns. Although i personally prefer to play the C1 as classic LRM.Boat with some Backuplasers, i did have big fun with this fearsome Sniperbuild. :rolleyes:

    5/5,
    Played many matches with this build. Didn't manage to get a positive k/d ratio, which is probably expected, but w/l is 1.26. (Moving to another build now, because I'm too tired of it after all this time.)
