If you re read the artical, the mechs should be scared of infantry weapons (striker, ap rounds, deci, ect)

Instead of other vehicles.

But how many shots to take down Infantry? That it doesn't say...


We still don't know a lot about them... I need dev answers before I can get a true opinion on them...

Its just like another vehicle. At 20 meters high, you obviously cant get them at an equipment term.

I doubt they will even come from a tech plant, My guess is they are spawned at sanc, posssibly with outfit points.

Anyway, I can take more pictures if needed but if someone else can track it down that would probably be a better confirmation. The cover is of "F.E.A.R." and depicts some kind of futuristic delta force/special forces guy. Also mentions Theif 3 being reviewed and a preview of Prince of Persia 2 in ugly orange lettering.

No one believes me on the official forums either but it's only a matter of time before someone else steps forward with the issue.

I'm still opposed. These things have enough power to completely wipe out an attacking force. It will become "Kill the big fucking robot" as opposed to "Take the base." If anything, this is the death of squads working together and an extension of the zergs: "The Zerg taking Gunkuku is getting nailed, let's just send a BFR."

The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.

Customizable?


"Each faction gets a unique chassis that can be customized. Attach the immolation cannon and then drive while the gunner makes with devastation. Yank out the gunners seat and you've got yourself a nimble fighter with jump jets. All told, there will be five pilot-controlled weapons, two or three gunner controlled heavy weapons, and a slew of upcomming enhancment pods. Each chassis is yours to tweak as you see fit, and you can save different loadouts for different combat occasions. For instance, there are NTU siphons that drain energy from enemy outposts, and we hear that a cloaking device is in development."

Sounds a hell of alot like some sort of outfit merit commendation, as for what you use to purchase the pods, im guessing personal outfit points, and maybe the outfit leader purchases the BFR, and you can customize it with your outfit points, and spawn one from a vehicle pad every hour or so. Thus making this 100% outfit oriented, you won't see any lone rangers with this thing, as it will require teamwork, and an outfit to acquire.

Thats what would make them really bad... they can also be really good if they are just big Tank Stompers...
