Casual NTG-H "Trader" (2xcERPPC, 3xcUAC5, ECM)

Thread in 'Night Gyr Omni Builds' started by Remover of Obstacles, Mar 8, 2021.



  1. Mobile (but still slow) mid to long range shooter with ECM.

    This build doesn't have enough cooling to support the PPCs. You can trade with a double tap and move. Or if you get stuck in an engagement or have a target rich environment, you have 3xUAC5s for sustained dps.

    So 50 damage on the reticle out beyond 650 meters with skills.
    If you have the opportunity, start with 3xUAC5s and follow up with an alpha. This should group better than alpha and double tap due to the faster PPCs.

    Well thought out, reminds me of the old ppc+ac5 days, but hotter ;p triple uac5 is very fun to play in more close range situations as well (though brawling is a death sentence for a NGR without the lower arm actuators and terrible sluggishness of course).
    I got inspired by the build and the remaining slots, and thought i'd do a vomit variant for more 450ish ranges. The long laser duration should allow you to get 2 or 3 double taps off while it's burning. Very different playstyle of course.

     
  3. Hopefully mobility and some of the other overnerfs get rolled back.

    I need to try this out a bit in real games and see if it is worth taking over the 90 tonners. I mean if you have the same agility, might as well take more armor and weapons and heat sinks.

    Might be worth it to go for longer range.
     
  4. PPCs are still a bit hot for my tastes. The build could really use a lot more heat sinks. The UAC2 version is also deceptively hot.

    Although the head shot potential is real.

    You could switch to regular ac2s, UACs fire twice and are hotter by default, resulting in like 2.5 hps increase over regular weapons

  6. But you lose out on the double tap burst. :p

    Actually tried 2xPPC, 3xUAC2s with tons more of heat sinks and it was much more user friendly. Had extra heat available to secure kills instead of needing to cover and cool off.

    2xUAC10 2xERPPC is tried and true. Perhaps a little too hot and spicy here, but theoretically possible:

  8. I agree. I was hoping to find something with better range and grouping. But PPCs and 10s is a very workable.
     

  9. A bit less burst, but AC5s are sync'ed with PPCs (June 2021). I want to to swap ammo for a heatsink, but you will run out even in quick play.
     
  10. Here is an asymmetrical build of the 2xERPPC and 2xUAC10.
