The aren't meta, but they can be good mechs. I've seen a few dangerous lanners running with Quad SRM6s, and The Spider is decent running twin UAC10s+lasers(or PPC)

The only thing they have going against them is that they don't run vomit well, (due to weight for the lanner, and hardpoints on the spider) and don't have the armor quirks that other clan mechs incapable of clan vomit often posess.)

I'll probably still be picking up a lanner to make into a mini linebacker. Should be entertaining, if nothing else.

I actually see suns fairly commonly when i play. it's a solid 70 tonner. it's kinda like how it was with the Roughneck. it doesn't excel on the field like some mechs, but it's good enough it still sees a lot of use.

If only the Black Lanner's variants were on temporary 50% Off Sale for a couple days as well... I could just imagine people then diving in to make those purchases. But hey, maybe that idea was too awesome to get used by PGI... :(

This is such a "meh" mech that it's not worth even for c-bills. Maybe, just maybe when they go on sale but at full price? no way.

Black Lanner art was beautiful but in game very ugly

Yeah I cant seem to break 600 without strikes in it. Keep getting 500's for most of 5 games I just played, its fun hit and run mech but it wont get tons of damage, I like masc, but this mech will probably be gathering a lot of dust till mediums and lights get laser damage buffs.

Not interested in the Lanner. If I want fast dueling mech, I got the Linebacker and the Arctic Wolf.

Black Lanner is quite useful as long as you use this mech for its intended role of scouting , maxing sensors and mobility tree .

If you don't care much for the thankless task of scouting , it's better skip on lanny .

Why are the Wolf and Jade Falcon camos on the Black Lanner almost identical? Posted Image

I can use Arctic Cheetah for that, and save some weight.

Looks like a BUG to me. Please go report that in Patch Feedback? :(

EDIT -- By the way, make sure to use the MWO Repair Tool to ensure your install isn't damaged before you go do a Bug Report! :excl:

Steam says my files are OK.

And since the stripes in the Jade Falcon pattern were visible in NGNG's Black Lanner preview stream a few months ago, I am not the only one affected by this issue.

So I agree: looks like a bug. One that has been around for a while.

Wow... yes, this 'Mech is a waste of a Mechbay. It's outgunned by an ACH or an Urbie, and too big to benefit from speed.
