Are the Executioner hardpoints what it is actually getting? They confuse me a little, suggesting it's a lower engine cap version or a battlemech.

I would appreciate the wolfhound IC for February free mech. There's no way to purchase it with c bills or really money.

A clan medium for February would be nice.

I could be wrong, but from the picture of the Executioner. It looks like it'll have 4 Energy Hardpoints and one Ballistic Hardpoint.

Like so:

1 Ballistic and 2 Energy (RA) and 2 Energy (LA).

As for the torso, it's a toss up, and anyone's guess from here.

I will say this about the weapons in March.

Cause Cauldron told me that the Plasma Cannon was a no-go. And they weren't going to add it. So I guess the Plasma Rifle is next?

As for the rest of the weapons. . . . Can't wait!

Note: I want to apologize to the Community about my posts on Lore-based Weapons, etc. I was being a total **** about everything, and I, truly apologize for my words and what I said. Let this be my Surkairede.

Keep in mind that the Cauldron takes inspiration from lore, but translation to MWO fps is a different matter (e.g., XPL).

In TT/Lore, Plasma Cannons deal heat damage. As has been said in the Cauldron Feedback discord, the Plasma Cannons in MWO should act like Clan LPPCs (green) and deal appropriate regular damage (little to no heat damage, subject to testing).

EDIT - so... no plasma cannons as per lore (mid range stun lock), but yes to Clan LPPC

2 ballistics. Seems to match Executioner B Config C without the SRM2s. So Executioner without MASC.

I am overjoyed that Thunderbolt missiles are FINALLY coming into MW: O. Please model new hardpoints for in-game representation. I'm thinking ports with big, yellow tipped missiles... or little port doors to protect them from enemy fire. Black contrails would also be nice. I think that would mimic what the old MechWarrior games had as a depiction, to differentiate them from other missiles. Beyond that, you should really consider giving the missiles a bunch of health to give them a fighting chance through the hail of AMS that will look to knock them down. Nobody will want to invest in a T-bolt 15 or 20 if the missiles get swatted down on a regular basis.

Something I've been pondering for a month or two... PGI should run a contest or take submissions for a variant Mech and have the artists model up the chassis to represent the design itself. Then sell the puppy. I've always thought the Cataphract would look cool with a matching right arm pod on the left arm, for instance. It would make it look like a poor-mans Marauder.

Well February is usually Valentines territory, so I'd suggest a pink BlackJack "Arrow". Then again if folks are playing MWO instead of spending time with their loved one, perhaps the Blood Asp Rancor might be more apt. I initially thought the Flea Romeo and another clan mech to take the spot of Juliet, but that might be a bit too on the nose. Could do something quirky and just us a random mech that has a sensor range and target decay boost quirk as well for those single folks out there looking for someone to unload their "missiles" onto.

can we get a ecm/stealth uziel with the 6p hardpoints and quirks? its one of the most unused but iconic chassis and deserves a new variant with something to offer and would make a great free mech

My Journey:

Sees Black Knight with shield.
Exclaims with joy, finally, something worth spending money on.
Sees shield is on the right arm.
Joy turns to NASCAR confusion.
Does this mean we go left?

plasma cannons sound really interesting, gonna be fun for qp shenanigans. they might also be good in comp, but that depends a lot on actual stats.

aside from that, I think the most interesting thing for me would be the EXE's paintjob :D
