Hey everyone, gametrailers has a video of the Founders Catapult in action. So go check it out! The Catapult C1 is a long-range, indirect fire support Mech, with a blistering amount of Long Range Missiles at its disposal. Perfect for raining down fire on enemies you can't even see the, duo of LRM-15s will ensure your target has a bad day. Difficult to counter - especially if it has a scout Mech spotting for it - the Catapult excels at staying out of enemy range and continuing to pound away with it's missiles. With an excellent top speed of 64 km/h and jumpjets, the Catapult has a surprising amount of manoeuvrability for a Heavy Mech. If enemies get into close range four medium lasers add to this Mechs already potent arsenal. Catapult CPLT-C1 Class: Heavy Weight: 65 Tons Speed: 64 km/h Jumpjets: Four Armament: 2x LRM15s; 4x medium lasers AKA: Death you can't even see Cheers, The MechWarrior Online Team

I like the video, but I'm waiting for them to take the story stuff they do (like the Average BETA one) and do a video with it, a little voice acting, a little ******** Betty, they tell good stories, let's fire a few up for the video releashes.

Also I don't think of a LRM boat as a killer, it's a support mech, slap some SRM's on there and you've got a different story, but I don't know, the personality seems different to me.

I've been wondering why the videos weren't set up like this in the past. Each scene showed Medium Laser destruction, or LRM devastation... and I LOVED it! These are definitely getting better at showcasing just what folks want to see from their perspective 'mechs.

Shyeh, noticed they ditched weight class distinctions and saved the best founder's for last. :)

Or... else they put the best founder's vid up first and saved second best for last.. Hrum

Looks good. I love the look of the Catapult since I saw it in 4th edition Battletech. I wish it's performance was as well in the vid as the game though.

The video is great... too bad everything it shot was almost dead or armorless already just waiting to be sneezed to death.
