Again with the Stone Rhino?
Aren't there any other chassis in this game?

Without reading the patch notes first - why?

Oh wait, it WILL work, not that it won't...

Legendary Mech quirks

Well, I don't see any. I don't even see what the pod space is on that Catapult. It's got MASC + Supercharger, so how much does that boost its speed by? How much does that equipment weigh? How much spare weight does that mech have for weapons? A 65t mech with 6 ballistic and 2 energy with very little pod space is meaningless, isn't it? It doesn't even have good armour quirks.

As for that Stone Rhino, I figure a Fafnir would be better than that. There's nothing special about the hardpoints. 4 Ballistic and 4 Energy with JJ vs a Fafnir that is equally wide but not vertically exposed ('cause it doesn't have the dorsal weapon mounts).

So, these legends boil down to...

"We have Fafnir at home"
and a very fat Flea.

I think most people do not know about Urbie event, I only know about it because someone made post on forum that it does not work. Posted Image

Yes.

So do not buy, then.

However, quirks can change.

It weighs 4.5 tons. Same as a MASC and a Supercharger together.
In theory, it should boost your top speed by 54%.

-in this game? quirks change, but still is not worth the $15-20 tag, cool camo pattern the one on the ferroblast though.

I really want to like the Catapult, but to me its just a really fast K2, that will be limited to a close to stock build for potential brawl/skirmish role, or as something like a peak and poke build with a significantly reduced damage potential that will be close to what you can already do on some of the lighter mediums that move at similar speeds. Then again, I like JJ capable Cats so maybe my preference is biasing my view.

Now that's a fast Catapult. It says 106.2, is that the top speed with masc/supercharger? or would it be %50 more, so roughly 160?

Catapult will go ~163kph with the combo MASC/SC and speed tweak. It is one of the smallest heavy mechs, has good hitboxes, and with arm weapons an insanely good top peak profile. It does not need JJ.

FWIW the Behemoth may be a bit undercooked but we can always adjust/buff it as needed.

Thank You!

Now that is a fun sounding Catapult, I'm in! I think I'll probably try an XL255 with 6x Light AC/5's. As an alternate build.

As far as the Behemoth, since I pilot IS tech only mechs, I'm actually quite interested in it. Those 2 top mount Ballistic hard points are very nice! Dual UAC/10's are fun.

Unless it gets a massive ammo quirk, you're looking at somewhere around 2-3t of ammo for those 6 LAC5 with Endo and Light-Ferro for your build. I don't know if I'd like a fast turret instead of a slow (55-62 kph) turret in the same weight category
