When a new mech is put in, PGI usually adds in other minor changes to MWO with a patch. Is there any improvement patches coming on the same day the Rifleman IIC is release?


As far as we know, the FP overhaul is scheduled for the may patch. Also Hibernal Rift gets a tone-down in brightness. Other than that, we'll have to wait for the patch notes.

The head looks smaller then in the concept art. Hope noone throws a tantrum and demands a Blood Asp-treatment.

As long as the dish isn't all CT, it'll do fine. But if it gets the Marauder II treatment I'ma be mad.

Actually it looks pretty spot-on to the concept art. It's just the concept art drawing is taken from the level of the dish while the image in the OP is taken from below the cockpit pointing up, giving the illusion that the size of the dish is different.

I was going to nitpick a bit that I would have liked the underside of the 'antenna dish' to be tucked in more but looking back at the concept art its pretty identical (except the underside is in shadow while the white in the OP makes it stand out). I figure if I use a darker colour for the white areas and a bright/vibrant colour for the green areas I can get the effect I want on the chassis.

All-in-all I think it's a very accurate and well done interpretation of the concept art.

Would love to get the Rifleman but those engine caps... not worth buying a pack and the extras just to get 2 versions with decent engine caps.


Yes, I was a bit disappointed with the 235 max engine rating. Had the slower variants had the max rating of the 2 and A base engine (260) I definitely would have bought the Collector Pack. As-is though I bought the standard pack and I'll have to try out the chassis before deciding whether I'm impressed enough to upgrade to the Collector pack (the Vulcan is the only mech where I bought the standard version then upgraded to the collector version after having so much fun with it during the launch week).

I have some serious issues with the way those ballistic hardpoints fit into the arm. Ugly dynamic weapons strike again....

Ignore the flashy screenshot -- alpha striking the primary Rifleman IIC variant on Terra Therma is generally not recommended.

Good God that thing is ugly. I love it! Definitely has that Soviet era look to it, hopefully that warhorn is suitably Tsarist.

its really cool that the Hero is named after the Box Jellyfish, most venomous on earth. Chironex being the genus name. its found near Australia

It can cause brain hemorrhages in some cases and the symptoms of the sting can last weeks.

When you need a super awesome mech who do call? Chrome Dome! When you want to be laughed at by the whole community what do you buy? Chrome Dome! When you want to make a Urban mech look cool who do you call? Chrome Dome! When a bondsman starts to cry it because he just won? Chrome Dome! No were to hide! No were to Run! Chrome Dome!

Yes folks its the release of Chrome dome. Now I really do have to hand it to the developers for picking one of the worst drawn mechs of the late 90's. Why did this happen? Some say it was due to extra oxygen tanks at the bar. Others feel that Russ sucked in to much helium during a April fools gag.

No one will ever know why we got this mech. Its like the Prune-face Star Wars Action figure.

This, so much this.

I used to load my Rifleman IIC in MW2 with a dozen machineguns and rename it Viecong.
