I remember stacking on like 2x ultra missiles that would torso destroy any mech that could ever be built.

That was all it could carry, but it was so easy in 1 vs. 1 scenarios.

Boater! :P

In the MW2 era, my favorite was an unusually customized Timber Wolf I called the Walking Heatsink. I'd capture it by overheating it with flamers until it shut down, then carefully shoot out the cockpit for the kill, resulting in a full chassis salvage. In the next missions, I'd assign it to a lancemate and blow off both arms and one leg. Then on the next mission I'd take off the other leg. The trick was to repair it in the 'Mech Bay without replacing any of the lost criticals from those segments, leaving them open for something like 34 double heatsinks. Then I'd just plunk in two Clan Medium Pulse Lasers, get within 400 meters and attack. It could deal out incredible damage by the time it hit thermal redline.

Good times... :)

I've missed pot shots with a Gauss...

Whenever I see someone post about Modern Warfare 3 abbreviated as MW3, my heart skips a beat. I miss my MW2 and MW3 days.

Anyone here ever play Heavy Gear 2?

AEO 07-27-12 11:11 PM

personally, I liked heavy gear 2 more so than mechwarrior as a mech game :D


Timber wolf was definitely a favorite, simply because of the sheer amount of weapons you could load onto the thing and fire at once without overheating.
otherwise it was mainly grizzly or kodiak, because that's all they gave me.

I don't quite remember which MW I was playing, but it sure wasn't the first one.

I loved the speed and flexibility of HG2. My best friend and I spent many late nights on the LAN with that game. I learned to fear his infighting while he learned to fear my MAC prowess...

MW2 Mercs: Dire Wolf

MW2 Ghost Bear: Atlas

MW2: Jenner IIC

I never liked ghost bear mechs.
always incapable in one way or another.

I loved MW2 and 3. I played 4, but never got all the way through, because I found the missions to be too unbalanced.

I joined an online clan in the MW3 days, and played for a while with them. Our clan really specialized in urban warfare, we loaded up with small lasers (the best dmg/heat ratio) and we were really good at ambushes, with about half of a typical strike group sporting jump jets.

Good times. There's a place nearby here (The Air-Lock, www.the-airlock.com) that has full up battle mech simulators, running a custom version of MW4. I need to go try that out sometime with a bunch of friends I can blow to hell.... :D

Mechwarrior4 has also been released free as part of the new ownership by Smith & Tinker. http://www.mektek.net/projects/mw4/

In MW4's single-player mission, there were several very difficult missions. "Country Life" and the Overlord dropship takedown, as well as an urban search-&-destroy in the city. On maximum difficulty, the first two are nearly impossible :D

Anyway, if you want a good brawler 'mech for MW4, try a Gladiator with four LBX10 autocannons and two or three Clan Flamers. They all recycle at the same rate and the heat from the Flamers will keep opponents off-balance if they're running heat-intensive weapons.

For those who've never played a MW game, the MW4 intro movie subtly teaches you Almost Everything You Need To Know About BattleMechs:


They're big. They can walk or run. Their torso and legs can aim independently. They can be destroyed by excessive heat. They have lockable tracking radar but lockup takes time. They have a variety of weapons. They have defensive options like AMS but you'd better remember to install them (or to eject :eek:) They can take damage that reduces their effectiveness. And they can BLOW UP. Oh, and the people piloting them can be treacherous snakes.
