title really says it all. This seems like a easy build to make, but it took me quite a while to get to this point. first off, heres the specs. I used to use a build very similiar to this one (http://www.mechspecs.com/forum/index.php?topic=4061.0) and used it as a starting point. However there's a few things different....its got no ams, and medium lasers instead of splas. now then, i loved sniping with a laser as much as anyone, but i quickly noticed that if im doing that, im really not using the full potential of the locust, which is circle strafing around heavies. This is the build MADE for that, nothing else. No range, you just close in, and start running around them like hell and hope you don't get stuck on something. I really wanted to keep the dual ams, i really did, but 2 things: -with dual ams, i would always run out of ams ammo midway through match with just 1 ton of ammo anyways -taking that ams out and putting in nothing but splas allowed me to stack splas range/cooldown weapon mods -get the ams overload weapon module. compensates easily So, i took it out. Also, notice the locust isn't max armor. Thats because all spots are at max except for head. Why? because i never ever ever ever die from a headshot in a locust. I think i did once, and that was because my leg was broken and was being rained on by missiles. I would rather sacrifice half head armor for max weapons, max engine, max all other armor points. for the consumables, i like coolshot6 + coolshot 9by9. This build runs hot, no doubt about it, but if you wield those lasers with precision, you can core out the back of a dire whale before you can say freebirth. For your mech module slots, i use capture accelerator, seismic sensor, and currently saving up for the radar deprivation mod. for weapon mods, i do spulse laser range, pluse laser cooldown, and finally ams overload. With the overload, i don't even miss the second ams. anyways, 6.18 max dps, about as high damage as one can get, while retaining max engine and almost max armor! i love this thing. thoughts?
