Guys I really just started playing IS mechs again. What is the Command Console? Is it better than an IS TC1 and BAP?

The command console boosts your sensors in the same way the Targeting Computer does (stat wise it's comparable to a TC-V) but it does not offer the projectile/beam range/crit boosts.

Generally, BAP+TC1 is considered superior as it weighs less and give's better stats than the CC would on it's own. The downside is it takes 3 slots but you can split them 2/1.


Now TC3 vs CC is a different fish. It boils down to your weapon loadout. If your primary weapons benefit from the TC use it, if not CC.

At TC5 you're comparing against the CC+BAP so it's sensors vs. weapon bonuses.... you should already know where you're going with this build.


~Sometimes I put in a CC just so I feel like it's a command mech. But that's me building mechs 'in universe' and not min-maxing.~

Being a Clan player I was used to using at least a TC1, but IS tech is new to me again. BAP+TC1 sounds like better than CC.

@ op

Ignore the command console -- its leftover crap. go TC1 and BAP and you are better than a Command console.
