BLR-1S Verbs Lurmageddon (2x LRM15+A, 2x LRM10+A, 3x MLas, 1x TAG, XL300 / STD275)

    So I tried a few of the lurm builds on here, after a bit of tweaking here is what I came up with.


    "Verb, an XL in a Battlemaster!!!" I hear you cry, but I feel that you need the tonnage/slots, and from my experience, when you get taken down in this thing it generally happens rather fast. I'd rather the speed and cooling that I get on this than strolling along at 52kph.

    that being said -


    I'd be tempted to drop down to 2 ml's for an extra dhs, few other tweaks are available, you can drop some armour from the arms for a dhs, or drop some ammo to add a dhs and swap tag for 4xml

    I run the exact same and it's a killer, the armour allows you to take a few risks and get the full benefit of a line of sight with artemis. If you go LRM boating, you can do a lot worse then this chassi.

    Now the question is: is it worth to have 1 more Heatsink or running almost 10kph faster?



    Nevertheless a powerful Weapon-Setup! ;)

    Well, if you have an XL340 or can afford one, that's a pretty epic LRM Boat! If, however, you are like me, a poor man with few engines, Verb's got one hell of a monster. Granted, it's a bit slower than many Battlemasters, but, as an indirect fire specialist, that is slightly less important. I'll have to build this up later tonight. This just looks too tasty!

    If you still have a XL320 in one of your mechs, you can try this:

    Exactly how I built mine, Blagg. Used my XL320 from my Victor builds and rocked out. Ran for about an hour and averaged about 500-600 damage w/ 2-3 kills. Very fun build. And that REALLY means something coming from me because I HAAAAATE LRMS! :D

    I love it! Running both Blaggs XL340-Version and the XL300-Version, they´re both really lovely to go with. I sticked to my AWS-LRM-Boat before, but this replaced it in a much superior way for me. 5/5 for Blaggs build and also for Verbs OP.

    AMS is a question of wether you like it or not on this chassis imho.

    Mechs with a slim slide profile like the Battlemaster can somewhat afford to go without AMS if you torso twist right.

    Mechs like the Stalker, not so much.

    Re:
    Nice, Really like this build. I don't have an xl340 , but imho this is a awesome build. Only change I'd make is to remove the BAP for AMS.

    EDIT: this deserves it's own thread ! 5 stars from me!



    PS. I prefer the 3xML over 1xML + 1xLL

    Simply add my Mod as an Alternative to yours - its the same weaponloadout. ;)

    As shaft mentioned already, you can take the XL340 from the Pretty Baby (or XL330 from the Dragon Slayer). I think it's even possible to load Double LLas instead MLas for even stronger Long Range Firepower.

    Dude i havent tried this build because i still don't own this Mech, but from my experience with similar weaponloadout on the AWS-8R (but slower due to engine cap) i can say that your concept is one of the best & most logical for the BLR-1S. When i have bought this mech i will Run it like this. :cool:

    P.s. With 70+kph i think BAP is more viable for higher sensor range. As Heavy Missile Support your only Fear-Enemies are fast ECM.Lights or Skirmishers.

    Pps: if you like to spamfire a lot you can try this:

    lol Spam is the right word. :D I've never gotten this much damage out of an LRM boat... But then again, all I was doing last night was throwing as many missiles as I could at every target that I had LoS on. I'm usually more cautious with making sure my locks will stick through flight time, but, with 1440 rounds, I just spammed away and it did quite well.

    Once again, I'm not a fan of LRMs and I'm certain that last night's results would not be common place for me. But, the spamfest was a fun hour of play.

    Even in a loss, it's respectable.

    And that's against Ixxy, Cyrion and Lucas. All good players in a 4-man w/ Spartan, who I do no know.

    Now to get that 3rd Module slot so I can run Target Decay, Seismic and add in Sensor Range...

    My current load-out as I am a cheap-o! :D (had the XL320 in the garage already)

    This build is a heap of fun to play. I've never really run an LRM boat before, I've only had experience hating them :p

    I'm running the 300 XL with 1980 rounds, but I might drop some ammo for more armor / DHS.

    Same as mothman, I've never really played a large LRM boat before, but so far I'm really enjoying it! the LRM50 catches enemies by surprise, and i can use chain fire for some effective harassment. I've found that it runs a bit hot in deserts and stuff (which is to be expected) but if I get the proficiencies I'm sure it will be very solid. I've also now finally noticed a real difference with Artemis :D totally worth it.

    5/5 from me, this gets a special spot in my garage.

    LRM-a-GEDDAN. (It should be done sometime.)

    ...why yes. Yes I do.



    Too less ammo? I tend to pick my shots when not spamming a solid lock. I only find speed to be an issue when I'm on a big map and doing shitty piloting.

    paint a target and get busy

    I apologize for the saturation. I'm off today. :)

    Yup, even someone like me who's braindead with LRMs can rack up the damage and kills with this 'mech.

    Currently running the STD275 version without Endo or Artemis and it works well.

    That got me thinking a bit. And after looking at Chattahah's build, I saw how further it can be taken with a smaller engine. It's slow, but fast enough to stay with the pack.

    LRM Bloat:



    Damn. Taking the Endo out has freed up a lot of opportunities. almost maxed armor, more DHS, BAP, AMS, and severe LRM count with C.A.S.E. protection where you want it.

    So do I keep my BLR-1S for missile boat duty or the AWS-8R? I like the arm mounted energy hardpoints in the AWS, but the BLR got a third module slot and has 5 tons more to play with. I don't want to choke a second mechbay with another assault LRM boat.

    I rather like this Mech as my primary missle boat myself. I absolutely NEVER run low on ammo, and chainfire quite liberally with an occasional Alpha thrown at a pigeon out in the open.

    Uploading a video of this mech, had a pretty fun (and overheating) match yesterday with Vergere, draconian and Jungle.
    I'll embed when it's uploaded.
