Build Info and Engine

  • Atlas AS-D-DC
  • Standard Engine 300
  • Maxed Armor (except legs, ~73 each)

Armament

  • 3x LRM15+Artemis (9x ammo)
  • 2x Medium Pulse Lasers
  • CASE in right torso along side 2 DHS and 3x LRM Ammo
  • Guardian ECM (mount in legs to avoid early destruction)
  • AMS (1x ammo)
  • Fill remaining slots with DHSs such that you will have 16 (with engine heat sinks) in total

Playstyle and Hints

  • Artemis requires line of sight. Your ideal position will be ~500-800 meters away from the target and ideally within line of sight (e.g. river bank)
  • You are worthless in melee (LRMs have a minimum range of 180). If you don´t know what to do, fall back to your nearest friendly.
  • Conserve ammo by not overnuking low health enemies and only firing if you are absolutely sure the target will be locked for some more seconds.
  • If you get jammed by an ECM, don´t panic. Switch your ECM to counter (hotkey J) and continue firing LRMs. If no target is available for LRM fire switch to your Medium Pulse Lasers and engage whatever is jamming you, while constantly falling back to friendlies who can help you get rid of the pest.
  • If none in your lance can provide TAG, experiment with switching one Laser for it.
  • Add more armor than usual to your rear. If you are getting pounded, it will most likely be from behind.

Cataphract Quad AC/2 Screenshaker Build

We have moved permanently to a new homepage:

With the latest patch from November 20th a new heavy mech has been deployed to the field: the Cataphract! One of the most appealing variants is the CTF-4X due to its four (4(!)) ballistic slots. Now lets see what one can do with this:

The Build:

Cataphract CTF-4X

  • Standard Engine 210
  • Endo Steel Structure
  • Double Heat Sinks (~13)
  • Maxed Armor

Armament:

  • 4x AC/2 Autocannon
  • 2x Medium Laser
  • 8x AC/2 ammo (put 4 in legs and 4 in torso protected with CASE)

Playstyle and Tips:

  • The ammo is very expensive so try to work with auto 75% rearm (turn auto-ream off and launch into new match).
  • Do not brawl first row. If you get caught in a melee fight with an Atlas you will likely lose. Try to stay in the 2nd row or keep at least 200+ distance.
  • If you find a Gausspult (Catapult armed with 2x Gauss Rifles) fire at it! The screen shaking from 4x AC/2 will ensure that the Gausscat cannot aim properly and will be rendered useless.
  • Only fire your lasers when encountering light mechs or when you have run out of ammo.
  • Set weapons to alternating (by pressing BACKSPACE) to maximize fun for yourself and screenshaking for your foes.
  • If you find yourself overheating a lot, try to fire in short bursts rather than holding down the trigger.
