    HPPC + HGR combo, supported by 4ERML in a relatively cool package!

    Faster version also possible:

    Tried this with the TC2 STD300 and I liked it, is it advisable to maybe downgrade the HPPC for MRMs? I tend to dive in headfirst into the fray xD

    MRMs is a different choice for a different playstyle, that's more about spreading as much damage as
    possible. I also do HGR+MRM40 for that reason, but this variant is more about pinpoint pressure at slightly longer ranges. HGR+HPPC is basically a dual AC20 in terms of pinpoint&damage, but with better projectile speed and range.

    Thanks for the review!

    STD300 version is interesting BTW, I've built it and it seems very manageable in heat!



    EDIT: I didn't look well enough and thought the STD340 version was the base build ;p Apparently STD300 version was the real original build! (need some sleep)

    Yes, it's a very cool build for the Kraken! Pun and literal meaning intended. Alright I'll stick to the HPPC then, thanks!

    5/5,
    Changed to 5* as it is still amazing, and I accidentally gave a 4* previously!

    If you upgrade to LFF armor you can fit a STD 355 in for 58.8kph

    You also lose some DHS which are nice to keep the HPPC + ERML firing as often as possible. I personally find the higher weight STD engines generally not worth the tonnage.

    I have not tried the Kraken, but I run HGR+HPPC+2MLs on Orion Protector and it is a lot of fun. Firing the HGR and the HPPC together is extremely satisfying (i.e., charge up and release both). Won’t get you very high damage numbers, but a lot of components destroyed and kills for the little focused damage.
