I am uncertain about this one. It is hard to maintain a good ammo to srm tube ratio with such low tonnage, but I feel the pulse laser is the best use for the single energy Hardpoint.

1xMpl
3xSrm 2
1xEcm
XL 200

Commando 1D, the best of both worlds, energy and missiles. http://mwo.smurfy-ne...1bbbe8917a60ca5


comes with XL-210 to use in the 2D as well as other builds. Is a pretty fast/agil mech with a range of 200-400m for the most part. to me plays like a commando should. the mobile, armored lance support mechs for killing other lights, and taken down wounded mechs with a 27 point alpha and good DPS.

Welp, it's time for me to throw my Commando Pilots Anonymous card onto the table.

There's only two really viable chassis for the Commando atm, and that's the 1D and the 2D. Problem is that both require a fair bit of knowledge on how to poke (For the former) and knife-fight (for the latter) in a rather fragile, XL bound chassis.

I've found a COM-1D build that mitigates that, though.

The "Proper" STD-Mando. This thing's surprisingly capable. You just play it like a mini-Centurion A, just running around bombing people for all they're worth. Plus, there's nothing better than getting that Left Side Torso ripped off and just watching as the other guy sits there and says "WTF?" as you pound him with another alpha and keep running. Imo this one's the easiest and most unique out of all the variants I've posted, if only because of the STD mixed with the brawling loadout. It's quick, relatively cool, has good enough ammo for what it's got, lasers to poke with, and on top of it all it's an STD engine.


Even though it's only got mediums to fill out it's fantastic E quirks, they're still quite dangerous to someone underestimating them. It's still 10 hitscan alpha damage that doesn't generate much heat. That added in with the E quirks makes them especially good.

The SRM is there just to fill a zombie slot, for when you lose both arms/ST's. The SRM4 is punchy enough, accurate enough, and ammo efficient enough to do the job.


This build's fairly straightforward and don't require a bunch of knowledge on "how to poke" and "how to keep range", which on a chassis as lightly armored as this one, is a necessity.

Slow but reliable light brawler. Not meta, but fun.

Classic 2D 3xSRM2 and ML

The few extra KPH is worth it over the MPL variant since its a single energy only anways. So the extra range gives you some more assists at least.

Using the 2D for ECM is basicly a must for the champion since its a commando...

COM-1D.

Didn't really expect much when I put this together. Was just kinda playing around in the mechlab, but it actually turned out to be a really fun little mech.
