So I just realized something, IS has HPPC (captain obvious), also they have single-shot AC10.

Previously, King Crab could do 2x Gauss + 2x PPC, which sums up to 50 PPFLD, but with GH link it kind of killed the build.

That being said, there's another way to achieve 50 PPFLD and that is 2x AC10 + 2x HPPC, unfortunately the AC10 has slower-shell with higher heat, obviously the HPPC is waaaay hotter too.

The 2x Gauss +PPC previously doing 21 heat, allowed me to shoot 3 times before i was too hot IIRC. But right now, the 2x AC10 + 2x HPPC though does 50 PPFLD, it has 34.5 Heat so I could only shoot twice before it's too hot to alpha.

What do you think? Meta, Decent, or ****?

i suspect it would have the same issues as a cac60 dire. good damage numbers, but poor performance in practice.

Well, honestly most of my problem stems from being left behind.

100 tonners are always going to be too slow to get into brawling range. at least with the kc build you can get into moderate range skirmishing with it.

Hence the build. It's solid on firing-lines, unfortunately that doesn't happen a lot.

You're late to the party, lol. I've been doing this on the Night star 9S and Fafnir 5B, both of which have better mounts for it and one of which can jump.

The issue, however, is range. 3x AC/5 for a 45 alpha and more reach is a little more consistent than 2x 10s.
