I already have an AC/20 Centurion with a higher engine cap and lasers instead of missiles.

With an AC/20, you don't have much weight free for missiles, even if you downgrade to XL 255. Same if you use 3 AC/2.

If I want to use an AC/10, the CN9-A already does it with the same missile hardpoints but adds two energy hardpoints.

So maybe I want to use two ballistics. The CN9-D does that, but it only has two missile hardpoints, though to make up for it it has two energy hardpoints.

Going back to the CN9-AH, 3 machine guns with 3 missile launchers is a joke; I have tried something similar in a Wolverine.

So really the only possible build is two AC/2 with three missiles, and that third missile launcher has to be more important than having energy weaponry. Yeesh.

Suggestion: Say thanks, strip it, sell the parts and ignore it. Congrats, you just got a free Cbill reward for nothing!

I love people who complain about free ****.... BLOWS MY MIND!

Slapped a decent size XL, AC20 + 2xSRM4 or AC20 + 3xSRM2. Those are unique to the AH and higher damage than two medium laser, though heavier and ammo dependent. Seems to work fine, for a cent with an XL

For the 1000th time, you can't sell it.

(But I essentially agree)

I fit mine with STD200, UAC5, 2xMG, 3x LRM5, AMS, ammo for the lot. It's a fun support mech with a cool paintjob.

I run that, its very cool in a brawl =)

This mech has a good feeling, like other centurions. But I really miss the lasers...

Like others my ylw is taking care of the ac20 business and seeing as this cant zombie and needs weight saving for ammo ive used an xl the trade off is ive made it a long range build with an lrm15, two lrm 10's and three machineguns. Although thinking of dropping the 15 down to a 10 and putting bap in too.

And i dont really like lrms especially not in a front line mech like the cent but unfortunately its the most effective build ive come up with so far. Something about an angel painted on the mech that rains death from above seems fitting too.

Similar to the STD engine LB/MG/SRM2 build posted above but with an XL.

Criturion-AH "Valkyrie"

I'm not having many problems using an XL due to the small side torsos and the ability to spread damage well. The XL gives you room for much needed extra ammo plus relatively decent speed. I can't bear to run any Cent with less than a 250/255.

There's not much you can really do with the AH to give it decent range so you have to get in close and I love doing so with this build. It's one of the few medium/heavy mechs I have that can stand its ground against those pesky NubCrows.

Felio,
I tried the 3 MG's with 3SRM6 last night. My first match was 4 kills and nearly 500 damage! I slapped the biggest engine I could in it, so I don't have to worry about heat. Without speed tweak, I am running at 81KPH. I have to tell you that I love it! Maybe it is a fluke, and I have just gotten lucky. I will play more with it tonight. =]

That's a 250 engine. 89.1KPH with speed tweak. The XL 250 and 255 weigh the same but the 255 gives an extra 1.8KPH.

I've certainly been slapped around by Cent-AH sporting the AC20 and multiple SRM4s, that's a brawler with punch that is not to be underestimated.

Koniving's more off-the-beaten-path build above looks interesting too, and one i will have to try.

Have you considered putting an XL in it? Its the only Centurion without CT weapons, kind of making going zombie with it meaningless, so you might as well got for as much punch as you can muster in it. Personally, I haven't bothered to put an XL in mine, but most of the best perfomances in the AH I've seen utilized XL engines.

I always seem to receive PPFLD metawhale sprunk right in the CT anyway so I almost always use an XL on my Cents.
