ANOTHER REALLY BAD MECH.

Posted Image Urbie is a great mech. And a solid performer. It can even be sort of meta (k-9 with MPLs). And amazing fun (with RAC5). Or a decent light poptart (HPPC).
Give it another try, it is an amazing mech, who can play both fast and slow styles.

P.S. Commando is a great mech, and my favorite light (Steiner here Posted Image ), but it is just a 'mech. Urbie is more.

No no no, Atlas is not a light mech. I'm a reasonable Steiner.

Zeus, however, might be offended... Posted Image

REAL Urbie pilots only use the "magic engine" it comes with.

Some body hit the urbie nest with a stick lol

Urbie can play like all classes of mechs. Tank like an asault, hit like a heavy, spread damage like a medium, itty bitty hitboxes like a lite.

Urbanmech the only mech you truly need...

PGI apparently disagrees. Otherwise the min tonnage for an FP deck would be 120t!

PGI's secret Comstar faction dropdecks actually are six Urbanmechs.

well they probably figured that they DID spend all that time putting together the other mechs so it'd be a shame if no one used them in FP.

edit- nm I thought you said MAX tonnage at 120.

Basically it's an UM-R60L with -1 energy hardpoint, and +2 JJ. Posted Image meh..
I would prefer something more interesting, like full energy urbie, with PPC instead of AC. Or ECM. Or MASC.. Damn, not a single drop of creativity...

Seconded on the RAC/5 Urbie. That's typically my default light.

But what about the 210 max engine size?

So it can do 113kph top, instead of 97. Still not a speed of light. Posted Image
You can't boat energy, you can't boat MGs, so you have to go for something heavy. And this means no top engine. Hell, i doubt you can even squeeze in 4 JJs, forget 6. (not like urbie needs so much, it is a great poptart even with 3).
Besides, making "fast" urbies - that's heresy. Totally kills its vibe.
