(Normally) I can accept that some Mechs are a bit derpy in their (classic) designs.

I love the Rifleman design.


Putting a fat hat on the Rifleman design is too much to take. I am currently trying to pretend this never happened.

I thought the same, but I caught a video of someone playing a really old MechWarrior game and the rifleman had the hat. Still don't like it, but it's been around awhile.

Look at the ortho, it only looks big from the top down. From the front, it's no higher than the cyclops head.

Nice. I'm digging the blue print concept artwork. I hope you reduce the size of those inner torsos on the blue print if that is what the in game model is gonna look like since they seem rather fat. I do like the tanky look you guys decided to go with and the giant side shielded arms.

But lore-based derpness came from real life derpness!

Like mah hat?

Its a radar!

Least it isn't this.

They were of course going more for this.

Which is more modern than the 1980s style radar that was in use when the original Rifleman (the Destroid Defender) was originally designed.

Speaking of...

Rifleman and IIC should have a sensor enhancement of 360 radar..
Its...kinda literally their thing.

Yea, I was hoping they'd be getting a 360* radar too, especially with that massive radar dish on their head.

Now this... This would be interesting honestly XD lol, 360 radar within radar range, then you really gonna turn into that mobile AA gun you always dreamed of being lol

"Enemy coming from 125 degrees, rotate right, aim, FIRE!" LOL XD

I really actually like the idea though dude

Without an epic radar dish, there would be no point in even having the Rifleman IIC in the game. It's what makes the mech iconic, and this mech was available all the way back in the original Mechwarrior 2 so it has significant nostalgia value. Personally, I'm hoping the final in-game model has an even larger (but flatter) radar array. The best way to escape the "hat" look is to make the radar dish huge like an AWACS.

Is this your first game from the Battletech world? Just ... Curious. What exactly do you think the Rifleman IIC looks like? By the way, you got owned by Koniving - food for thought :P

Who needs lasers when you can just turn on your radar and watch mechs melt from the radiation?
