Well this is the first Mech build of the year! Let's kick it off with some Sabre Mech goodness. The Wolverine is by far my least favourite of the 2 Sabre Mechs. I do not doubt its worth, but I feel the Griffin just lookes cooler and feels so much better.
However the Wolverine is a pretty decent Mech; least I find this loadout works really well for.
From the ashes we'll rise... the Phoenix Mechs have returned... all shall burn before our might!WVR-6R(P) "StreakClaw" (XL280, 2x AC/2, 1x ML, 3x SSRM2, BAP & 2x JJ)

This build is primarily a support build. The dual AC/2s allow you to suppress and DPS down most Mechs (do not doubt the power of AC/2s). However, once you're able to bring those SSRM2s to bare; watch as your foe is shredded.
You basically shake your enemy with those AC/2s whilst ripping off his limbs. You might not always get the kill, but you soften most enemies up for your teammates.
Now I say this is a Support Mech, as you must fight with the rest of your team. Now that Alpha is a super common theme, you have to keep with your allies. Shoot what they're shooting. Help them. If your Assaults are getting harassed by Lights, don't be afraid to chase them off.
