I was just wondering what are all you guys/gal favorite mech and builds were for the mechs.

i had a few but my all time favorite one was when I played MW4 black knight and i had a Daishi with 5 er large laser 2 clan ultra ac 20 plus some clan lrm 15. that build could core a atlas in one shot but it was fun as heck to play in.

Yea i know it heat would have sucked but at the time i played it BK was all no heat no ammo so i just rolled with it.

Fafnir with standard 2xHeavy Gauss. Because you will always feel this weapon when it hits you.

That.... That is the best idea ever!

Sort of gives weight to the quote:
"...And the moral of the story is: don't run in the city."

"No, the moral of the story is: Locust pilots are the weirdest."
- Life In The Big City, CITYTECH Rulebook

I remember something about the locust pilot ejecting and yelling "whoopwhoopwhoop!" as he flies across the city, smashing into a building...

and i love any weapon that can knock you down...

so I started playing Mechwarrior 4 and messing around with mechs and builds... my question is why not use a bunch of weaker weapons instead of a few bigger ones? I found the ER lasers to actually be much more damage per tonnage, the lower you go. 1 ER small laser is only .5 tons but does 2 damage, that's 4 times as much, a medium does 3 damage while weighing 1 ton, and a large I think weighs 4 doing 7.5 damage, it just keeps getting lower. I found a Wolfhound which can only use lasers and he has 4 small lasers, 1 ER small, 2 ER medium and 1 ER large. The large is only for range shots since they do get shorter ranges the lower you go, which may be the only drawback to some people. Though if you are in a light mech such as the wolfhound, you can get in pretty easily anyway. well the only reason he even has the mediums is because I ran out of the smalls. He really kicks butt in the arena, I had a small coolant pod to keep things nice and down with all those lasers, especially ER lasers, but I replaced it with another laser seeing that if I pace my shots enough, I'll never come close to overheating, just have 3 groups, all the weapons for a giant hit, one for all the small lasers, and then the last for the large and mediums lasers.

If I'm going about this the wrong way or anything, or if you just have an opinion on my build, I would really love to hear it. I'm new at this, so don't think I'm trying to tell anyone how something should be built, just saying what my first thoughts just by a little bit of poking around, and I more than welcome criticism, as long as it's constructive.

Nova with as many ER Large Lasers as you can fit in. (Yes, I'm a guilty laser boater, it was the only way I could win MW2 when I was 9 years old.

My favorite in MW2 is the stock Marauder IIC Prime, who needs ammo when you've got 3xERPPC carnage!

In MW4 I like my 2x UAC5, 2x UAC2, 2x Medium Laser, SSRM 6 Thor/Summoner custom. That thing will keep you rocking from long range so you can't hit back, then get in close and finish you with the lasers and SRMs. Plus with MW4's ammo amounts, I rarely run out of AC ammo before I die, and the 360* torso twist means you can't escape!

My favorite is a Black Knight with 2 Clan LBX AC20s and 2 assault lasers.
Good speed, good armor, good firepower with the LBXs, but no heat syncs for the lasers and it's very short-ranged (hence the need for speed).
The assault lasers are just for finishing people off and the odd alpha-strike, 'cause there's no way to deal with their heat for any sustained firing.

That's more of an arena build though, just for close range mech-on-mech action.
You can also replace those LBXs with gauss rifles to make it a mobile sniper, or replace the assault lasers with various fast firing lasers for taking out vehicles. Whatever the mission calls for.

Only problem is that the Black Knight isn't available in most of the games. Then I'll play a Timber Wolf with triple "whatever-takes-up-three-yellow-slots", then alpha-strike those to make people fall over.

Though I don't know exactly what all can fit on my fav mech. Id love a bushwacker with a ppc and capacitor for it, 2 med lasers on the other arm, a Enhanced LRM 10 with follow the leader warheads, and put EVERYTHING else into armor (modular on the cockpit/chest if possible)

2 Rotary AC/2's
4 ER Medium Lasers
I'm doing it completely off of memory, so I have no idea if this is even plausible. The rotary's are the most memorable part of the design, because they completely SHREDDED the armor of an mech unlucky enough to wander into my sights.

Edit: Damn you small spelling mistakes!

Top preferences: NovaCat (5xCERL Laser), Daishi (4xCERL Laser, 1xCGauss) and Thor (1xClan AC10, 1LBX AC10, 1xCStrike SRM6)

Most used mechs:
- NovaCat - 5xCERL Laser
- MadCat - 2xCERL Laser and 4xCLRM
- Daishi - various combinations of everything (but usually 4xCERL Laser and 1xCGauss)
- Thor - various combinations of CStrikeSRM, AC10 and LBX AC10
- Crab - combinations of XPulseLaser or PulseLaser
- Puma - 2xERPPC
- Marauder II - 1xRailgun, 4xCHeavyLaser
- Battlemaster IIC - 2xLightPPC, 1xCapacitorLightPPC, 1xCStrikeSRM6

Good times... :)
