    I'm tryied to make a good mech out of this hero, but without many hardpoints on torsoes, it is not gonna happen... So I had to take compormises.

    The main pro of this build is the alpha strike: 45 damage is very good for a 30 tonner, but you are very hot for being a light brawler.

    Short version: try to use this mech as a heavy's-assault's backstabber or to assist your bigger brothers.

    Use 4xML only (61% cooling efficiency) when target is at range (over 100-150 meters) or is smaller than a medium.
    Use 2xSRM6 only (98% cooling efficiency) when you are at hug range (below 100 meters) for minimum spread. You should fire SRM6 over 100-150 meters only to big target (70+ tonners)
    Alpha strike for back stabs or when both of previous points applies and you are cool enough to not overheat.

    The cons of this mech are multiple:
    • Bad SRM6 spread at range (useless against lights or fast mediums if not at hug range)
    • Hot build for a brawler (requires good weapon discipline and heat management)
    • Lot of armor has been stripped
    • No XL250-255 for best cooling efficiency
    • No JJs despite being a Javelin
    Recommended skill tree here: it is a combination of firepower, survival, speed tweak and radar depravation / seismic sensors,

    afaik Missile spread reaches its maximum spread at 40m, but I could be wrong. It seems to have a different method of spreading than LBX ACs at least.

    Maybe going full hug mode and using SPLs for better cooling efficiency/DPS?

    It does actually looks a bit better, but then it would completely lack efficiency range, which means you either commit to brawl or not poke / show at all.

    4/5,
    I used mine with 2xSRM6 and 4xERSL, XL225. Does the job well and frees up some tons for DHS. Good concept for sure.

    Smaller SRM launchers and added JJ's and a little more armor. A Javelin's legs are its weak point.
