    This is almost meta. The meta from Grimmechs had a single JJ, and I was annoyed that I couldn't get up on things. Replaced one DHS with two more JJ's and optimized the armor some more. Why isn't the meta build here? Well, here it is:



    Also, I felt obligated to make my Vulcan-5T look like Samus.

    The real meta would be running Wolfhounds instead of Vulcans no? ;)

    No JJs on Wolfhounds. And I've definitely seen quite a few of these Vulcans about. I think they may have slightly better hitboxes

    Also, compare the agility between the Vulcan and the Wolfhound: accel, decel, turning, etc. Vulcan's considerably better.

    I stand corrected :) sometimes a little hop is worth more than 10 kph and/or ecm. And agility is probably even more important.

    5/5,
    At the moment I'm using the 1xJJ version with +1 DHS because I'm still skilling it, but it is damn nasty even with little to no skills.

    This mech actually has a very nice maneuverability (it almost feels like a light mech), so I think it can be further exploited with a proper skill tree, like the following

    EDIT: previous recommended skill tree

    XL280 version: slower, but so cool you could try to not skill into heat gen at all and skill into survivability

    The Meta usually only uses 1 JJ on a mech like this. This build isn't meant for poptarting, so anything more than 1 JJ is considered wasted when another HS will result in less heat/more salvos. Think "Brawl Support". However, in PUG's, more JJ's definitely are needed. Great build, great mech.
