    After some trial and errors with both this build and the vomit lasers builds, this XL300 is the definitive version. I'll keep the old posts as ALTs

    Fast harasser, good pinpoint, decent MRM damage, cooler than it looks.
    You should use it as a poptart or an harasser, try to avoid direct confrontation whenever possible because this mech is still quite fragile and it does have a huge unquirked CT (that's also the reason why I fitted an XL engine)

    With the following recommended skill tree, you can achieve decent armor / structure values plus the MLs and MRM will always fire almost altogheter (including the duration of both ML and MRM), there is a very little difference of 0.1-0.2 seconds. When running hot, either shoot Medium Lasers if target is above 100 meters or fire only MRM if target is closer than 100 meters due to little to no spread and lower heat generated.


    Previous versions and alts
    Based from a similar build, this version is faster, has better synced shots, has better pinpoint damage and medium laser range.

    EDIT: after some matches, this is the build I'd stick with if I want to have fun with MRMs. SInce this mech has a major issue on the CT (no structure or armor quirks, plus huge hit box), there is no need for a LE: you will die due to the destruction of the CT anyway, so fit a XL280 for better speed and cooling. For this reason, you should play it like a kinda fast and squishy poptart: run around, fire your alfa (even mid air), hide before sh*t hits the fan.

    You should abuse the extended range of your medium lasers (they have nearly ERML range and generate basically half the heat) and couple it with the disruption of the MRMs. Keep in mind that when you are jumping, the MRMs won't have it's aim disrupted, which means that you can still fire the MRMs in the direction you are pointing at even when jump jets are still active and you are gaining altitude.



    ALT: older and original LE version

    UPDATE: due to a previous patch that increased overall ammo count, with fully maxed ammo skills you can drop the half ton of ammo for a 3rd jump jets. With that jump jet you can finally climb up to the top of most buildings in mining collective.
