    EDIT: it was painful to skill it, but once fully skilled it is really a very powerful mech. I've changed name to "Mini Battlemaster" because yes, it is THAT powerful



    I'm really amazed nobody thought of this build... Pretty straightforward: very high hardpoints (like a battlemaster), decently fast, good heat dissipation, good range, huge alpha for being a nimble 30 tonner.

    Skills are very similar to any other vomit laser build: max heatgen, max coolrun, max range.

    Max heat gen, max range, max laser duration, max coolrun, skill most armor and radar deprivation, skill a bit of acceleration / deceleration and fits 2 consumables

    Like v1, but sacrifices mobility and the 2nd consumable for a maxed seismic sensor

    Like v1, but trades survivability for mobility and an additional consumable

    ALT (2nd iteration): swap a DHS for a TC1. Optimal range and maximum range will benefit and you will be cool most of the times. If you ever find yourselves in a brawl or in the need to fire early, you are screwed.


    ALT (1st version): drop to XL255 version, if you like to be faster

    UPDATE: changed main build to XL235 version (more cooling is better due to the support role of this mech, you can't brawl anything and you need all the help you can get if anyone wants to push your position), added recommended skill trees.

    UPDATE: swapped TC1 for another DHS. The additional range provided by TC1 is good, but sometimes you really need that additional DHS to keep on spamming those laser to farm free trades. In the end its your choice, but in the end I found out TC1 bonus isn't enoguh compared to additional cooling

    5/5,
    I just got an INC-4 and took it for a spin with a 6xERML build. Confirmed fun! And I think fully skilled up it is going to be a solid midrange fire support poker/harasser.

    I'm doing the XL255 version, without a TC:


    With this skill tree:
    https://kitlaan.gitlab.io/mwoskill/...062301cf37f0000d86fd70f000080af271f#s=Weapons
    (1 strike, 1 arty, 2 coolshots, 1 UAV)

    Post skill up report:
    Confirmed fuuuun! and effective. Might never be a 'meta' mech, but it is solid.

    I took one look at the build my two thoughts were:
    1) Its a solid build seems good for both invasion and casual play.
    2) Where's the Beef PPC?

    Thus I went to the drawing board and came up with two ideas that maybe good for a Casual and/or Meme build.
    The first one is for those who want the speed and/or don't want to spend money for an engine:



    The second one changes the engine from a XL270 to a XL170. I know it doesn't compete with other light mechs out there for its speed but it makes up for it with its fire power of the 6xER-MLasers and ER PPC, just as a warning it runs hot so I recommend a cool run skill setup for it:

    Terrible. If you're going to put ERPPC's on a clan light, go with the Adder or Cougar. Both of those can mount 2xERPPC and have enough cooling to be effective.

    The INC-4 has 6 high mounted and tightly clustered energy hardpoints. No other clan light has that. If you don't jam pack them full of energy weapons you are wasting the mech.

    I know that. That's why I said its a "Casual and/or Meme build" a bit more emphasis on the Meme aspect. I got the idea for mounting a ERPPC after looking at the BattleMaster after looking at it on Sarna.net, comparing it to arm when the INC-4 mounts an energy weapon, the recommendation for a cool run was if someone decided to commit to the meme.

    Gotchya. I would not recommend being 'that guy' who is the last low-DPS 'sniper' light that the enemy team has to chase down and eventually kill. It might seeeeem like fun, but in reality, it's trolling and not being a team player. In my opinion, of course :D
