I also think, from what I have seen, that "in-game" prices for mechs will be higher for larger ones... but so will repair costs. So you can get the Atlas right out of the gate, but you will earn (net) money slower because your repair bills will be higher on average than someone in a smaller mech (even if you both gross the same amount of C-bills for a round). That seems to be the balance in offering each class of mechs as a starter... and I am hoping that if you do choose to go with a big Atlas to start, and realize you don't like it, the C-bills from selling it might be enough to cover a lesser mech. That is a *hope* though, not a guarantee.

Hunchie for Projectile Weapons, Moderate Armor, and closing range at the speed of a Geo
Catapult for Missiles and being a giant target in plain view.
Atlas for being indecisive and a Steiner.
1X Narc launcher
3 tons split between heatsinks/armor/ or other modifications
Run up, Narc target, Overheat target.

The Catapult has me intrigued though, in older Mech Warrior games the cockpit was larger than most other Mech’s making it suicide once someone got in range of you, but I love the way they have redesigned it, it’s more stream line and less of a robotic target with legs.

Thanks for all the input!

1) The expectation is everyone gets a free mech to start. You could always pick a Catapult. However, it won't be a founder catapult.
2) Your Veteran package includes in game currency which can probably be spent on more mechs. MOAR MECHS.

However, if you can sell your mechs, maybe get the Atlas, play around a bit to see if you like it, and if not, sell it for the cash to buy something you might like better.

They stated in the "Medium Mech" video that this was one of the more frequent Mechs on the battlefield, being a bread-and-butter close range brawler with a bit of customization.
They more or less stated that medium will be the most prevalent. I want the Mech I'm using the most to have the money bonus.

Plenty you can do with that. Personally I am going to look into swapping out the AC/20 for a Gauss Rifle and upping the armor a little bit.
