Highlander 733C has only upper arm actuators in its right arm where it mounts an AC 20. Obviously Devs don't think it matters.

See for yourself. http://mwo.smurfy-ne...ab#i=72&l=stock


This. ^

Though I don't know if the arm in the game behaviors like the other Highlanders...

IIRC a friend of mine told me it works just as if it had lower arm actuators.

if there is 2 assaults scheduled for release according to the poll, where does the Banshee fit in this. I assume the Devastator is for July.

If the developers added C3 (small chance), the Mauler could be added. According to the source
below, there are 3 variants in 3050:

Mauler MAL-1R
Mauler MAL-2RC
Mauler MAL-3R-UK

The non-Hero variants only count if they come from this list, or from one of the official TRO or Record Sheet books ;)

The Master Unit List ("MUL") is run by Catalyst Game Labs ("CGL"), the current rights holders to BattleTech - so no 'Mech or item is official until they say so.

EBT, on the other hand, is a fan project, and includes units (that is, 'Mechs) and items that have been actively labeled non-canon (and, therefore, "does not count" as far as MWO is currently concerned) by CGL (such as anything from Mechforce UK).
As such, being on EBT does not make a given 'Mech/variant valid for MWO.

Hmm...
...hmmm...
...hmMMMmm...

I say it will be the Banshee. Victor would be a disappointment and Zeus just as well.

King Crab would be nice.
It would be a surprise.
...okay, honestly it would be a big surprise. Still a nice big surprise altogether.

And what a glorious day that would be! :)

But, which hero...?
The Bounty Hunter?
Andrew Redburn?
Sheridan Douglas?
David Rowsch?
Ron Dexter?
Natasha Kerensky?

For a hero Marauder, don't forget Grayson Carlyle. He piloted a Marauder for a large portion of his career.
