Doesn't make a lot of sense since you wouldn't be able to pick it back up and use again once you dropped it. Why not just put it in a housing on the back of the forearm? Then you can shoot and pick things up, or shoot things you pick up!!
Loving the redesigns, but I have to agree with Ironhawk that some of them seem really frail and skinny. Also I think you should've just ignored the "pistol" on the Charger and placed the laser directly on the arm, pistol/rifle weapons for 'Mechs are just the dumbest idea ever.
Personally I like your second Marauder design over the first, never been a huge fan of the original Marauder, stupid little skeeter bug with a match on it's back. To skinny, to tiny, to round, I like your beefed up version much better, it looks like it's actually a war machine not toy. Have you seen ShimmeringSword's Marauder?
