    EDIT2: changed name to Sekiro (as far as I've read online, "shinobi" is a synonym of "ninja"): this build is hard to use and feels underpowered when facing other foes, but once you know how to exploit their weaknesses or how to approach them, this build will really shine (like the very same character, "Sekiro"). Build is now even more reliable due to the fact activating stealth no longer prevents heat dissipation, but simply give a -1.5 h/s penalty, so you can actually very slowly dissipate heat with stealth active.

    EDIT: newer version with +0.5 ton of ammo but no armor in head, arms and -4 armor from both legs.

    Alternative name: tiny stealthy assassin.

    Previous iteration:


    Quite slow unless you skill into speed tweak, good alpha strike for a stealthy 30 ton, quite bad spread at range. You play this little mech like any skirmisher: flank while stealthed, preferably get close enough to apply vaseline pinpoint damage, shoot in the back until someone turn around to return fire, roll out and repeat. The main things this build lacks are speed, ammo count and jump jets, but it is quite fun and you can achieve great scores.

    Reccomended skill tree: max any missiles node, especially ammo (don't drop without ammo nodes), max speed tweak and ECM nodes. If you are using the 3 ton ammo version I would also max air strike / artillery strikes for additional damage. I would always skill into coolshots for those tight situations were you have to keep stealth on or you have to engage despite being hot.

    ALT: swap a single SRM4 for a single SRM2 and a ton of ammo.

    I loved this concept, but I felt slow. Minor Changes, Been very happy with the performance.

    UPDATED: with the "recent" buff to base ammo count, this build has become even more viable. Updated with my recent experience and added an Alt with 3xSRM4, 1xSRM2 and +1 ton ammo
