Having issues firing on the run? is the caffene in your veins effecting your aim? Outfit your scouts or mechs with this and improve your accuracy.

NARC, or Narc Missile Beacon, is a missile capable of lock out to 900m (though with limited maneuverability) but effective out to 1200 meters, upon striking a hostile vehicle, acts as a missile guidance beacon for 30 seconds. While the NARC itself does no damage, when successfully "stuck" to a target, the NARC will begin broadcasting; in-range friendly vehicles will receive a notification that a NARC is active, and any friendly dumbfired missiles will automatically home in on the beacon once they close to within 1000m, provided they were launched with active radar. NARC missiles are very bulky, sharply limiting the number of extra NARC missiles a vehicle can carry. NARC beacons will also override a TAG laser if both are active at once; dumbfired missiles will seek the NARC. Missiles also will fly towards the beacon if passing over the NARC attraction area when fired from afar. This allows ArrowIV missiles to be fired from the other edge of the map, and hit the target when NARC is attached on their flight path.

Look for further 101 posts.

I will, if only to warn people of the contents.

As I wrote in your other thread, what you cite above is completely different from canon tabletop rules. So either you have info from the closed beta and break the NDA by posting it, or you're making up stuff.

No matter which of the two it is - please stop.

Yeah was kiinda wondering what was up with it and if this was a bad dream to nerf scouts by a heavy pilot. NARCs have no time limit, once they are on, they are on, its why ammo is so limited on them, you shouldnt have to fire them a lot.

From Garth's "Ask The Devs 1 - Answers" thread:

Quote

Equipment:
Standard and Endo-Steel Internal Structures
Standard and XL Fusion Engines
Jump Jets
Standard and Double Heat Sinks
Standard and Ferro-Fibrous Armour
CASE

Obviously not all of this will be stock, and some things will be harder to get than others. The equipment list is everything that I can guarantee for launch, though we’re likely to also have most, if not all, of the following ready to go:

Artemis IV
Anti-Missile System
Active Probe
ECM Suite
Narc Beacon
TAG



Which basically means that the really juicy Equipment isn't in yet, and nobody but the development team has any idea of how it would function in-game. OP is peeing into the wind here.

edited to clean up the color codes *grumble*

Information is not from beta its based on previous MW releases, the information is somthing they may tweak, alter or revise. However the base info will probably remain the same. Take it as face value or somthing to ponder. Either way you look at it is if they implement it, what will you equip?

You would void alot of flak if you just stated this is a possible feature list for this system lets wait and see. instead you state it as fact and thats way people will get in a tizzy. Still i can't believe how many people violate the NDA on here. It's like once a day.

Once a day? You, good sir, do not spend enough time on the forums :P

After every 1000-batch of new keys, more than 10 people will void theirs in the first 24 hours and another 10 in the two days afterwards.

Good catch. I just checked their wiki and it is cut/paste from the MWLL wiki in all the "101" posts thus far.

Wow, copy&paste from some wiki of a fanmade mod? That's even worse than I thought.

Quick, someone post Captain Picard.

As they have been using Tt ranges the NARC is 270 m. May have changed in Beta of course.

Whoa, whoa, whoa....... don't use this too liberally. You might accidentally call down a memestrike on an innocent thread.
