    Back in broken LRM days I one shot a fully healthy cicada once while on Caustic with this very build.

    Something with hit-registration limit/issue about how it would only process up to 20 hits on each mech at one time I think.

    Not sure if it is true. But it does seem that the game I spam chain-fired LRM15 and it seems to do more damage on the same map than doing full LRM45/LRM60 hits. Would +A be part of the issue?

    I am running without +A.

    Artemis only comes into effect if you keep line of sight on the target.

    5/5,
    The most logical build for this Mech. It was THE inspiration for me to create some very similar builds. Thx a lot Fuzzy! I gave the Concept now 5 of 5 Stars since it get's buffed by the new Quirk System! So now the Heat Efficiency Problem is manageable NOW!

    Here is the Ultimate Ammo Edition:

    I am back to 3x LRM15+A, 2 MLas , TAG and BAP with 12 tons of ammo. Don't know which engine I am using ( on my mobile atm), but should be a 260ish sized one.

    This amount of ammo is definitely needed with the quirks on the 8R if you're using the LRM15 cool down module as well. Went through all of my 2160 missiles in less than 8 minutes on River City yesterday. 1350m range for the LRMs is sick by the way.

    Jup. 8R's quirks combined with the LRM15 range module.

    Quirks made this thing into a walking monster.

    A few games afther the patch I got this:

    Only quirks, no weapon modules yet. If you have ONE narcing light mech assisting you, you can pretty much turn the tides of a game
    on your own. Just like Aylek, I dropped one LRM15 and filled up the free tonnage and space with Ammo, because 4xLRM 15 just burned
    through 1440 missiles way too fast and generate too much heat imho. Now I'm at ~2340 Missiles and still manage to burn them over
    the course of a game even without modules. But the results are devastating, I love it. Might even be a little overpowered.

    I think this build was a bit better before ghost heat. Even still, I don't know of any other Mech that can do LRM60 in one big fwoosh (well, besides a Catapult that will be stretching its capabilities), which will get more missiles through AMS than a lower alpha.

    Could be hit reg issues. I know its quite often, depending on patch, that I'll hit with a huge alpha for negligable result.

    Welcome to mechspecs:

    1) Please follow naming convention
    AWS-8R "Air Strike Awesome" (4x LRM15+A, 3x ML, BAP, STD210)
    2) Please add "s" behind http, that would translate the smurfy to the correct format


    Personally i think there is no point in doing the build this way, you can easily add endo to the build and give it a much better engine with the same or more DHS. Either that or go XL since you are a LRM boat anyways.

    This is far from OP, but it is all good if you enjoy it. If you want some LRM with some shooting you can try this:

    Smurfy Repair Team Report: Clerical Error Fixed, Mech Loadout System Error Fixed. Notes: Even after 3 years here, I still see pilots not able to read the FAQ myself and others have made for the new pilots here. It's a shame, because then they have to be told by the nice Frenchman how to do things properly. It's a waste of my time and his, but at least we get something to do while the servers are busy.

    He messaged me and I walked him through how to fix it, and included a link to the FAQ. he must have signed off before he read it.

    About the mech:

    1/ Trade the head laser for a TAG.

    2/ Too slow, much too slow.
    An LRM-boat must be fast enough to keep up the team's pace, this is not a turret! Or just enjoy your death in the hand of a random light.
    (not to mention if you're going to do mainly indirect fire support the Artemis is useless)

    Protip: upgrading to endo-steel allows you to upgrade the engine to an STD 255, without any other change on the build. This is still slow, but less slow.

    3/ Also, not enough ammo.

    4/ duplicate :rolleyes:

    i don't find the speed to be a problem, tho, there needs to be more ammo, but really, the 2 ML are 4 self defence if a light mech is harrasing our group, or even taking down near - death enemy mechs

    Just so you know a slow turning assault with 2-3 ML is no threat to any light pilot worth his DHS.
    If you don't want to spend cbills at least slap on an XL280.
    A slow and lonely LRM boat is in fact prime target for lights.
    You need some speed to catch up with your group anyways if you were to use your ML, or you would be lagging behind as a target, or worse slowing them down.
