    I thought the Grid Iron was the worst of the bunch...

    Lo and behold! 2xUAC5s are actually quite fun! And effective!

    It's tempting to drop a ton of ammo for an MPL, but you really need that ammo to pwn. Keep it. Try not to brawl- stay at range and throw rounds down range!


    Edit: Errmmm... are Smurphy links not what they used to be? Halp!

    Yeah, that's a thing with the new site. Just add "s" to the "http" of each link to make it show like normal. ;)

    Post it as a plain link, make it https instead of http, and the forum should automatically format it.

    On the build, I was tempted to try something along these lines myself, but wasn't sure. Pics mean it happened, though, so it looks like I'll be trying a build like this one sooner rather than later.

    Did you ever use the mlas in combat? If not you might replace it with a TAG to increase your match score. Also the 225 or 235 STD might be good here though the later would require some sacrifices.

    Tried to run this, but I just couldn't deal with the slowness. Glad it worked for you, though.

    Got this guy for free with the Karma Koin / Paypal Gifts promotion (Full Hunchback Mastery Bundle).
    Definitely excited to give this build a try. Might consider dropping the MLas for another ton of ammo.

    If I wanted to bump up speed, std 225 is the most I'm willing to go. Any amount less than 6 tons of UAC5 ammo isn't enough! Here you lose the Head Laser, but gain nearly 10kph in speed. Why dontcha give this variation a try?

    With the high-mounted UACs, I love to abuse corners, hills, and peeking in general. You can usually squeeze off 3-4 bursts into someone before you're noticed, thanks to groovy quirks (and a CD module- highly recommended), and you've a range of 690 meters to play with. I *have* out-dakka'd a Chainsaw Ilya in a stand-up fight, but it's still risky and you're beat up afterwards... =P

    As for the head laser? I use it to poke mechs over hills and make 'em antsy, and grab assists when I don't want to waste UAC5 ammo. Though replacing it with a TAG is a great suggestion!

    And protect that hunch! ;D

    That's about the best build for a bad quirk set, now it's going away. Can you stomach a 200 engine for a 50% Gauss cooldown?
