CDA-3C (Naming this the ER Boom Bug)

Just in case you did not like the range on your dual AC 20 version.

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.


make sure to include at least 1 point of armor in each location (2-3 in legs) so as to give the apperance of armor. at least until someone sneezes.

I see this concept and LAUGH. It is so funny I might just try it out one day. XD
I can see it now...
The game starts, I slowly plod along, waiting for the moment of encounter...
And then a lone Jenner runs up to the group, sees a Cicada, which it "knows" will chase after it, and attacks!
I fire once, missing completely, and the Jenner promptly tears me apart while I reload, despite my allies firing at it. XD

While not a Cicada, it's got dual AC/20s and jump jets...the conjoined Urban Mech.

drop 2 jumpjets, swap to an xl125, add endo steel, and you can fit another ton of ac20 ammo.

Hummm, good point. Playing with things you can actually get up to an XL195 or an XL180 and a bit of extra armour or ammo.

A couple of months back, I dropped in a game with one of these on our team. Our team died, and I was spectating on a Cicada, baffled as to why his top speed was absurdly low... and then I saw the 2 AC20's... oh, boy. He had stayed at the start point the whole game, probably trying to kill a base capper by imitating an AFK player. With his team dead, he then wandered into the fight, did 40 damage, and died. I guess I'll give him credit for trying!

This was probably me. :rolleyes:

Admittedly, and I've never said otherwise, its a base-capper's nightmare build; nothing more or less. It's designed for the sole anticipation of a base cap from the enemy, which if successful denies them 1 or 2 lights very quickly and without much loss. Depending on how close a match is, it can also be a quick end to a game - one way or another. :angry:

That is hilarious. Now this, this is how you do a terrible but fun gimmick pug 'mech folks! Convince your friends to bring a lance of these sometimes and watch the rage/laughter fly.

A rare group of Commandos stand silently in Caustic Valley, feeding on the mineral rich water that comes from the factory downstream. Such majestic creatures. Beyond the small dwelling, high on a hill would be their primary predator: The Cicaback, the rare and ******* offspring of a Cicada female and a Hunchback ICC Male. What this creature lacks in speed and elegance it makes up for it in sheer power - with two burst fire 199mm Autocannons classed at 20! Let us watch what is happening...
.. Yes, I see it now. It's approaching the Commando group silently, not trying to draw any attention.
I think they see it..

..They see it! They flee! They flee as fast as their tiny little legs and gigantic XL Engine can give them! But they've left their backside vulnerable!
The Cicaback launches the attack and fires! He legs one! HIT!

The Cicaback now finishes it's prey by delivering the final blow to the head. Whoever said these creatures are without Mercy are clearly wrong. It is now content too feed on it's kill. The Cicaback can consume nine times it's body weight.

The Jenners will have to wait their turn to take on the scraps.
