The Arctic Cheetah Knuckles Bolt-on Debacle, Resolution, Conclusion, and Bug Bounty!

Greetings MechWarriors

In the recent event "Resistance vs Invasion"  we awarded the Arctic Cheetah Challenge with Arctic Cheetah Knuckles Left Bolt-on.  This event was the first time we had awarded Bolt-ons as an event prize and at first, everything was fine. Alas, it did not last.  Players excited at the prospect of equipping knuckles on their Arctic Cheetah quickly discovered 3 issues.

  1. The Bolt on was not supported on the Prime variant 
  2. When players removed the Hand Actuator on the Arctic Cheetah the bolt on floated in mid-air "in much the same way that bricks don't."
  3. When players equipped Weapons they were covered or partially obscured by the Bolt-on

Initially viewed as a Minor issue (most bolt-ons do have some variant restrictions) and players could still equip and un equipt the Bolt-on depending on their loadout. However, all 3 issues combined lead us to determine it would be best to just remove the Bolt-on from the game.

As the result, we will remove the "KNUCKLES" bolt-ons (right and left) from the game during our next downtime on October 16th. The players who own those particular bolt-ons will be refunded their MC price (500 MC) per Bolt on owned. Yes, both left and right bolt-ons will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding.
The MechWarrior Online "Bolt-on Decision making" Team

Can you discover any more Bolt-ons that fit the above criteria that should be removed? 
Let us know in the comments with screenshots of the offending Bolt-on and if you are the first to post the bug (Per Chassis) you will get 300 MC!
