    The combination of hardpoints on the KDK-4 are calling to be used in a brawler, and that's what I did here. The build's focus is mirrored by the cooling efficiency as well as it's sustained DPS.

    Use your cUACs at range and while closing into your target. Don't hesitate to spam them as ammo should be plenty. Add the other weapons in when in range, the closer you are the more this thing hurts.

    Use your arms for shielding and rolling damage. All of your weapons are at a pretty low duration or instant as long as you're not double-tapping the cUACs in an infight.

    Nice build, my first try also ended up at this. However, I went with the XL375 for the TC1 (increases crits of UACs/SMPLs) and an extra heat sink.



    Refreshing to see an XL385. I don't understand the prevalence of XL400s in these mechs. Of course, it's THE FASTEST... but paying 2tons for 0.8 kph and an extra internal heatsink slot (which might not even be used) is just meh.

    Well, the cXL400 is free, maybe that's why?

    But I have to say the 400 does work on some builds, I usually use 375.

    True, but sell 2 of the 3 XL400s (assuming people bought the pack) and get an XL375 for the money. Then just swap them out when you need to master the other mech. Can't run 3 of them in CW, usually you don't die so fast that you'll be stuck with 2 mechs in game.

    *sigh* Some people are hard on cash/cbills...Not everyone sits on a mountain of cbills like us old players here. I seriously burnt 200mill+ just to play around with Carebears.

    hahah, I almost never have more than 5M in my bank ;) Haven't even got more than 3 modules. That's why selling 2 Clan XL 400 is necessary for that strat to work.

    Finally got my hands on the -4, and my obvious first choice was a slightly modified Clawfinger.

    A little experiment I am looking forward to try... take a look at those sustained DPS!
