Nearly got a CGR for that reason, there's something intensely funny about blitzing some jackass playing pick-a-pixel and imagining him screaming "GET IT OFF ME GET IT OFF ME WHY DO THEY BURN THEY'RE RED LASERS"

Doesn't work out that way hence me not getting it.

With the buffs the 1A1 got this last patch it can put some serious hurt out in the right scenarios. It's MXPL levels of output without the heat concerns. Hilarious stuff.

I very much like the idea of trucking someone who doesn't know what respect for short range DPS is, it's much more demeaning and humiliating to them to get destroyed by what they hold in abject contempt.

and machine guns to the rear torso still works fine, yeah. The effectiveness is completely up to the pilot skill and situational awareness.

But the coolness... the coolness is built right in.

As to the paint scheme... that can be changed. All I'm hoping is that we can place a giant decal on that shield!

Purples and yellows can work for loud schemes right out of cyberpunkia or a synthwave album, I tend to prefer things like Impossible Pink+that Escalation color that's basically cyan on a purplish or bluish black like Hotrod or PC Gamer black (PXH default pattern looks awesome with this)

Ah, the exact thing the mech with the already perfect shield arm which is famously strapped for tonnage needs:

A 4 ton shield arm to eat all the shots which would have otherwise just missed anyway

I look forward to the next legendary Spider, with 6 more JJs than the 5V

Looks super fun to play!

My prediction is it will be pretty weak, 4 tons is a very steep price to pay on a 50 ton mech and Centurions aren't very strong to start with. But the concept is awesome and you can always buff it if needed.

I would do this: cn9-al

or this: cn9-al

Question: Is there any way to separate the armor value of the shield from the arm itself?

Looks cool, but that arm will vanish in 1-2 secs in today's giga alpha game:(

132 points of armor and a giant target. In this mega alpha long range environment that shield will be gone in two alphas strikes from someone sitting 1k+ meters out. Cool idea and would probably work if the game hadn't been reduced to 90+ damage alphas from the next time zone.

TTK for a Mechwarrior game is shamefully, detrimentally, and embarrassingly short. Shields won't help. Looks cool though man! Paint looks awesome.

It'll get outright ignored because with no LAA you can't raise it with freelook and they will just nail your CT when you twist back. "shoot my shield!" "lol no"

It looks cool but I really don't know why it would be effective, pretty sure they can still tag the side of the Cent's head over the shield

From a looks standpoint this is another incredibly appealing LGD but it's going to be painful to run, which is honestly a shame. Again, the artist and modeler did a damn good job.

It's funny, people complain about the power-creep in this game, then complain some more when a new mech doesn't push that.

The more mechs we get in this game the better, imo.

Good hunting,

The power creep is already here, the problem is that this mech will not keep up with it. It sure as hell won't exacerbate it, but the power creep doesn't hardly care.

I think this is super cool! I'd love to see some more mechs with shields like this going forward tbh, Black Knights or what have you.
