    Update 7/20/2017: Changed to ER small.

    Max range: SLas 172 m, MPLas 253 m
    Efficiency Skill Tree: Click Here!
    Atlas Armor Skill Tree: Click Here!
    Groups:
    [1] Alpha strike
    [2] 6 MPLas
    [3] 6 MPLas (chain-fire)
    Proof?: link
    If you were using 6 MLas 2 MPLas before ( :meh:The weapons got linked together:vomit:), with this build you are trading a little bit of range for better heat efficiency (By 4 heat), cooldown and duration (25%!!). Just spam the alpha button as fast as you can if you don't believe me.

    side note: if you put 25% duration on medium lasers... :rofl: it just turns into a medium pulse laser. who would've thought.

    updated skill tree. Anchor is very important.

    Recently also switched to a MPL-based hunchie. I prefer to run a little faster, so I run only 15 HS and a single ML or Flamer instead of the 2 smalls, which allows me to put in ferro fibrous and a STD275 (which contains the 15th DHS)

    In the past, I used to run a standard 270 with 6 medium lasers and 2 medium pulse. So I understand where you are coming from with the speed boost. Until recently when the engine desync came into effect I learned very quickly that the engine I used to run for its benefits was a waste of firepower, for a 10 kph boost. With the skill tree I've created above you might feel that agility that I think your hunting for. Maybe this build might even grow on you.

    You might like the xtra punch. It can save you some eye strain.

    The extra punch is at a different range though. If I want to scalpel off some components from 250-300ish meters and stay there, the smalls are disappointing :p

    With the ER Smalls from the new tech I think this will be a great upgrade :)

    I was on the fence on that before because I didn't want to go half speed. Now I just adjust to keep my LT barely intact.

    This is what I run it like now. Found the STD250 a tad slow and the armlaser (with protective armor and everything) to take up too much space.

    pic below is without strikes.
