MechWarrior: Online - Firebrand released!

Super exciting news guys! The Jagermech HeroMech, Firebrand, has been released. Can you scream Rifleman as loud as I can? No? Might just be me then. Truth be told I hate the Rifleman. It's got major heat issues with paper thin armour. I'd much rather a Grand Dragon. But that's TT rules eh.

Back to MW:O; PGI has seriously given what we've all been wanting, an Unseen Mech. It is currently disguised as a Jagermech, but hopefully one day the Unseen/Reseen will make their grand reappearance... I can dream...

Anyway a Stock standard Firebrand is actually pretty not bad. It comes with 2 PPCs (1 per arm), 2 AC2s (1 per Arm) and 2 Medium Pulse Lasers (1 per Torso). It has an XL280, Endo Steel and Double Heat Sinks already attached. To me this screams brilliant!! Hell it's the perfect HeroMech actually. Onto that in a later post.

Hardpoints wise, the Firebrand has 6 Energy Hardpoints (2 per Torso and 1 per Arm) and 2 Ballistic Hardpoints (1 per Arm).

It might not be the most "All-Rounder" Jagermech (the JM6-S retains that title since it has 4 Ballistic and 4 Energy and can be armed in almost any manner), however it comes as a clear second.

Mechlab aside, this is probably one of the, or rather THE most beautiful HeroMech currently in MW:O. I seriously love the flames and the "Evil" symbols. This Mech is a beast, a beautiful beast!

I'm already concocting crazy ideas and Mech Builds for this beautiful beast. Did I mention that I love it?

  1. You might want to consider swapping both PPCs for ER Large lasers. Use the extra tons for ammo and heat sinks i guess.
