The Centurion is just so good. Hands down one of the best mechs in the game.
Im working on elite for all 3 variants and currently on the Cn9-D.

My Centy

Endo steel
Dhs
Xl300
2Mlas
Gauss rifle with 4 tons ammo

I love this build but i switch to this sometimes

Endo steel
Dhs
XL300
A/C 2 - 2 tons
2Mlas
2 SRM6 - 2 tons ammo

Anyone care to suggest other builds?

Move this to the battlemechs forum, your taking up QQ space...
Fast gauss load out is a pain in the ***, especially since I have a tendency to ignore cents in favor of bigger game.

You came to the wrong hood. This is the subforum where we cry and moan.

I run my YLW with an AC20 and a standard 250 - not as fast, but a damned zombie (will keep fighting after losing both side torsos and one leg, like the black knight). And shooting a raven out of the air, *** -first with an AC20 just feels good.

To mix the two, just imagine the wonder of the cn9-a when SRMs werent broken. ac5, srm 18 and 2ml all moving at 120 odd kph.

Am I the only one who remembers the "Dragon will be better than Cent" posts from way back in the day? So glad they were wrong :-)

I get massive damage in my Centurion AL. Two Large Pulse Lasers in the right arm (with lots of DHS and a ML in the CT for zombie times) dish out tons of damage and can easily fire around obstacles without exposing the torso. Just be the wingman for a bigger mech and it will not be targeted.

Use a Yen Lo Wang with an AC20 (4 tons), two medium pulse lasers and a XL300 or go home. Bottom line.

I prefer my 9D with xl350, 2ml, and 2 srm6.
Speed is life for anything under about 70tons.

I’m with you. The Cent is hands down one of the best mechs in the game. Fast, balanced, and small enough to be hard to hit. I’ve actually maxed out all 4 of them.

My favorite builds include:

YenLo:
Xl295, DHS (extra half ton comes in handy for ammo when I take a bit of armor off the legs), Endo, Speed 105 with Tweak
Loadout A: Gauss, 2xML
Loadout B: AC10, ER-LL

I go back and forth between the AC10 and the Gauss on this one. The AC10 version actually does more damage at range IMO. Though the Gauss hits harder.

CN9-A
XL275, DHS, Endo, Speed 100 with Tweak
Loadout A: UltraAC5, 2xML, 3 Streak

Fast and versatile, with enough ammo to use the AC5 at range.

CN9-AL
XL275, DHS, Endo, Speed 100 with Tweak
Loadout A: 3xLL
Loadout B: 2xERPPC, 2xML

Hands down the best Cent build. Load it up with HS's and it is one continuous LL- just run around and carve things up. The PPC build works really well as a sniper after the last patch, but I still like the LL build best.

CN9-D
XL295, DHS, Endo, Speed 105 with Tweak, Artemis
Loadout A: LRM20, SRM6, 2xML

Hardest Cent to play well but deadly if played right. I’m on the fence about missiles right now, but have had good luck with this build when I’m careful about keeping LOS and using my speed to keep the range at about 500 or so.

I don't own a centurion, but hate facing them. Not because of their weapons or the pilots who drive them; just that they soak up far too much damage before finally giving up the ghost. I think they are a bit broken tbh
