Does any one know how the game decides to give a mech as loot ????
I have a lot of games where i win i can't choose a mech, because there is'nt one in the list ,only weapons and ammo ???
Is it the same as in Battletech ??? where you have to get 3 parts to get a mech ???
Legs gone is 2 parts , headshot 3 parts ,mech blow up 1part ???

You get entire mech as a salvage but it takes a great portion of your negotiated salvage share number. There's no partial mech salvage anymore.

As for seeing the mech itself in the salvage table, there's a % based on how it was destroyed. Headshots give it a greater % to show up while CT destruction lowers it and if the mech explodes, then there's an even lesser chance of showing up in the salvage screen.

As for the actual %, I don't have any idea. That said, I've seen some mechs show up in the loot despite having its fusion reactor blowing up.

Don't leg if you want to salvage. Here's some chances hovering through the ether:
Killed by Headshot: 95%
Killed through CT: 25%
Killed by Legging: 10% (Keeps alive most of the weapons, though)

There is a mod that increases the chance to salvage legged mechs and I think its more realistic

In my experience, the chance of getting a mech in the salvage screen greatly reduce if you crit-out the mech's CT.

Headshotting and taking out the legs increase this chance, but you can still not get the mech.

Thing is you have to kill a lot of mechs before you can salvage some to the point of ridiclous much.Would be nice they give us the why and how to farm mechs.

Finally found something it seems the game calculates it as follows.
  • Legged: 10% base (6% overall)
  • Cored: 25% base (15% overall)
  • Headshot: 95% base (57% overall)
