Allow me to share with you all this joyous moment (read: horrible travesty), as I have discovered a wonderful use (read: incredibly stupid idea) with respect to the unappreciated Cicada-3C.

Feast your eyes on this powerhouse of terror, whirlwind of destruction, and unstoppable force of meowfulness (read: the dumbest thing you're likely to see all day):

Is your mind blown? Is this the worst mech imaginable? Feedback is appreciated.

PS - .... And no, I'm not serious.

Am I missing where you stashed the ammo or are you going to swat mechs with the barrels?
LOL

I played the Cicada with 2 ton ammo already. Was funny! But only 7 shots wasn´t good!

Worry not, dear sir, for you will undoubtedly not live long enough to take that fourth shot.

For the truly epic players among us, whose awesomeness shines through the internets with greater luminosity than a supergiant star, you can remove all armor and add in two more tons of AC/20 ammo. =)

OMG - you are right.You can drop the armor to zero and get 3 tons of ammo.

I am almost tempted to try it.

Wonder if i come out alive from the spawn.
If a teammate bumps into you it´s pretty much gg.

You can switch to Double Heat Sinks - drop two of the heat sinks and then easily add 2 tons of ammo and your cooling is boosted to 40%+.

I would add only a single ton of ammo and some more armor back on.

You can't. You must have 10 heatsinks.

Oh, you must post some screenshots of end results, or some anecdotal evidence of your reign of terror- its like piloting two urban mechs at once!

Alas, I fear that's impossible. There aren't enough free slots available. AFAIK, only 9 DHS will fit, and you need the mandatory minimum 10 heatsinks to be able to launch. The only way to fit in a tenth DHS would be to drop Endo-Steel, but without Endo-Steel you'd have to drop an AC/20. And that, my friend, would be far too good an idea for this thread.

Someone was putting together a 2 8-man all MG bout. I want to see 2 8-man teams with nothing but this build!

...it's like a Budweiser can holding 2 howitzers together, all duck-taped to an RC car. Holy crap.

Even a cheese build needs a little ammo for garnish.

Find some way to stick at least a ton of ammo on it.

Never mind. Found it.
I'm dying to see it fire.

I'm thinking backflip.

Dead god... and I thought stuffing one AC/20 into a Raven 4X was pushing it. :rolleyes:

I can only imagine the surprise of your target... assuming you manage to shoot something before going down. ;)

I'm almost tempted to buy my very first Cicada just to try it out. :rolleyes:

Scary part? This is the Alpine/Tourmaline variant.

You don't want to see the brawler...

Nah, gotta remember that you have internal armor to the tune of half your maximum armor in a location. Consider it playing with a 66% reduced health handicap :3

best balance is to put 1 point into every location (so they don't see you as being opened and ready to die) then dump the rest in of the armor into your CT (about 22 pts of armor.) 2 tons of ammo is more than you should need if you stick behind an atlas and just try to flank his target xD
