Catapult players better hang back in a fight.

As long as the rule says one hit destruction of cockpit is possible, I would avoid using Catapult unless I am far away and unloading my LRMs.

There will be times when you will have to close on the enemy. If you have some lasers and some grit you will be fine if you have situational awareness and a good team. Teamwork (in my opinion) will be the deciding factor in this game.

God I hope not. Zoom was one of the biggest problems in previous games...

"hang back all you want, but my atlas is gonna have a 7x zoom module and a guass rifle, your face is sniper meat!"
First, you'll have to win a LOT of battles in an unmodified Atlas to earn enough XP to unlock the Zoom modules & the Loyalty Points to unlock the Gauss Rifle. Then you'll have to hope that the head hit location is big enough to hit reliably. Then you'll have to hope that your 100-ton high-tech Atlas is in the same battle pool as a low-tech 65-ton Catapult. And while you are standing still lining up the headshot on the Catapult, his gauss/PPC sniper team-mates are doing the same to you & his Jenner sidekick is nomming on your back armour.

now that you mention it, its not a bad build for city maps to either have 4 med or 4 small lasers, and as many srms as you can fit on a cata for a brawler. max armor of course and enough heat sinks to keep firein yo srms!
since streaks are the tracking ones our starting srms are just rockets anyway so its a good excuse to have a stealth catapult in passive mode since you dont need to lock dumbfires on targets.

That said, I will thoroughly enjoy raining missiles down on people's heads AND ripping them apart with medium lasers when they think they're going to get in my face.
Or something like a 4 S/SRM6 Catapult for maximum brawling funsies. Yeah... yeah... Brawling Catapult... Yeah... mmmmmmmmmm
