    Here's the hitboxes on the King Crab, two days after release. The centre window is the cockpit, the sideflaps really do belong to the sidetorsos.

    Posting Gargoyle images soon.

    DIsclaimer: These hitboxes were located ingame using small lasers to probe the actual model, taking a screenshot from the mechlab and painting it with a overlay. It's not a pro job.

    YEEEEEEAH. Pretty sure people are going to get used to killing those XL builds pretty quick. Just shoot for the shoulders! WOW those things are massive.

    The only area I feel we may have been a little unclear of is the rear, where the arms meet up with the ST's. But yes, agreed. The hitboxes do not favor XL.

    However, the torsotwist and increased speed...well, that's playtesting. Maybe it'll be good enough like the Vic? :)

    I have updated the Inner Sphere Hit Box Localization guide with these images. Thank you.

    Um, don't know if it's just me (don't see why it should be though) but the image links seem to be broken, both here and in the Guide mentioned by Michael. Can anyone confirm this?

    Strange, because for me they just show "missing link". If I use my super-cool Moderator privileges, and go to edit the post, THEN I can see them . . . weird.
