If you pick the same size as the standard one you took out, or slightly larger it should fit.

omg thank you for explaining that. i was wondering wtf was up with that. so far i like the trial catapult with the 2 ppc's. so i guess i have to start out with a commando (almost have enough) and work my way up? also do i have to buy one before it lets me start changing the loadouts?

and yea, it took me a bit to get used to the controls. i didnt realise the arrow on the map was which way my legs were going for like 2 games lol. and the weapon grouping threw me off and i didnt understand how to change them, makes perfect sense once i figured it out though.

id kinda like to see the game be a little more colorful, the graphics are great, i just feel its a bit bland. i get they're going for the wasteland look but still....

i really havent had any issues with lag, so far what bugs me most is the game popping in and out of full screen in between matches.

Yea, since the new economy patch it takes awhile to earn cash for new mechs. And yea, you can only reconfigure the mechs you own.


There is a huge patch coming Tues. implementing the latest CryEngine 3 build that's suppose to be better optimized and include DirectX 11 support.

youll be fine just posting a name

mine is Ultralocrian

lrms and lasers seem to be the dominant weapons. lrms are way more valuable than in mw4 because they can go over terrain and you dont need line of sight.

i cant use ppcs for a ****. they always just overheat and never hit anything

mw4 was all ppcs and gauss rifles

so take everything i know from mw3 and mw4 and just chuck it out the window, got it.

i assume autocannons are decent but low on ammo and pulse lasers are nonexistent untill the clans show up?



legging the **** out of everyone still a win win right?

theres pulse lasers

autocannons arent as accurate and you have to lead the shot and adjust for drop. compared to mw4 where they were practically slow lasers

i havent done or seen any legging and im not even sure destroying both legs even kills anymore

are there any electronic clocking devices that prevent lock on outside of say 800m like the old games/books run.

AMS is the only defense right now. There are still a good bit of stuff not put in the game yet but I don't know if cloaking I'd gonna be. They are trying to keep the game as true to the source material as possible so if the tech doesn't exist in the universe at this time then it's not in the game. If you can break lock by going behind cover while missiles are still in the air, they will sometimes miss. Also you can totally "borrow" teammates AMS by running close to them when you have missiles coming at you.
