So, the 1K has no JJs, no ECM, no MASC - what makes it valuable vs the other PXHs? Laser boating. Not many IS mechs can take 8 lasers. We’ll want medium lasers for the damage and range with low weight, but these have a ghost heat limit of 6. Also, 8 medium lasers is going to get hot. So, we divide them into 2 groups: 4 ER meds for a bit of range, 4 MPLs for burst damage and better damage/heat. Over 300 range shoot the ERs, under 300 prioritize the MPLs and add the ER as heat allows - a 1-2 burn, as the name suggests.
