This build is best used with a Rangefinder acquired in Campaign or Career, paired with ++ weaponry, but is shown here in one configuration with standard gear. I found the Griffin to be very versatile, from the moment I got it through to late game, especially if you utilize lightweight weaponry. This build relies on its speed to get it into view range of your targets, and letting it harass, but not fully engage until the rest of the heavies and assaults in your lance catch up. Evasion keeps it alive. The 3 ML are to help finish once the entire lance is committed. Adjustments: Rangefinder is essential, and use what missile combinations you like. I've also had success with a glassy 2xLRM10/LL build in this role. Pros: 55Ton mechs are fast and can spot the OpFor well ahead of your assaults, more survivable than stock, LA and LT are expendable shields. Cons: Only 135 dmg in alpha, and not much purpose for it if the rest of your lance doesn't have LRMs or other long range.
