Victor Builds:

This is an 80 ton mech that has jump jets and a good mix of weapon and engine options.

Victor - VTR-9B Builds

The Victor VTR-9B has 3 balistic hardpoints, 2 missle hardpoints and 2 energy hardpoints. This mech can have up to 4 jump jets and can use up to a 385 engine allowing it to move up to a blistering 85.8 km/hr.

VTR-9B AC2x3 Build - This is a long range sniper build that is extremely limited. All of the weapons are in the Right arm so it is very easy to disable, the only bright spot of this build is sustained long range pinpoint damage that this build can dish out and the speed that it can move.

VTR-9B Gauss, SRM 10, 2 ML Build - This is a fast mech with inside outside abilities.

VTR-9B 2xUltra AC5, 2xSRM6, 2xML Brawler Build - Build name pretty much speaks for itself, maxed armor, 2 jj's and some heavy fire power for getting down and dirty.

 

Highlander Builds:

This is the most recent mech type added to MWO. This mech is currently the only assault mech with jump jets.

Highlander - Heavy Metal Builds

This is my favorite hero mech. Whenever it gets a kill it plays an electric guitar rift over large external speakers. This Highlander is the only one that has the energy hardpoints on the left arm. If you want to play this build on any other highlander your weapons would all be on the right hand side. If you can handle driving a pink mech this is the one for you :)

Gauss with 2xERPPC build - This is the main cookie cutter poptart build for the Heavy Metal. This mech has 3 jump jets and has a guass and 2 erppc's for long range.

Highlander - HGN-732

This variant has 1 ballistic, 3 energy and 3 missle slots.

Gauss with 3xPPC/gauss rifle build - This is a good ranged poptart build. This build has 17 double heatsinks.

Highlander - HGN-733

This variant has 1 ballistic, 2 energy and 4 missle slots.

733 Missle PPC Build - This is a good long range mech. This mech has 2 PPC's to disrupt ECM and provides damage and has 4x10LRM's for long range punch.

Highlander - HGN-733C

This mech has hardoiunts for 2 ballistics, 2 energy and 3 missle slots.

733C Mixed Build - This mech has a good mix of long and short range power. ERPPC to disrupt ECM mechs and for all around damage, 2xlrm10's for long range damage and a AC20 for a finishing punch for anything that gets too close. There is 15 double heatsinks but you will have to manage your heat wisely.

Highlander - HGN-733P - This is the only highlander without a ballistic hardpoint

This mech has 4 energy hardpoints all on the right hand side (2RA, 2RT) and has 3 missle hardpoints on the left hand side (2LT, 1LA).

733P Missle Boat Build - This build has ERPPC and TAG to open up ECM mechs to missles. The mech has 2xLRM15's and a LRM20 with artemis IV to rain the pain.

This mech has a large amound of energy and missle hardpoints.

This stalker build can be used for any varient except for the 3H as all other stalkers have enough energy hardpoints. This mech is excelent for heading other mechs or slicing threw a lot of armor in a short period of time. This mech has 21 double heat sinks so it cools down fast, it can only get in 3 alphas before it shuts down so manage your heat and switch to single chain fire if you need to cool down some.

This should be a good balanced build that will allow you to snipe with your stalker and have a lot of fire power you can bring to bear once they get inside 180-270 but heat management will become key at that range. Remember PPCs are useless within 90 meters.

Battlemaster Builds

Battlemaster - BLR-1G

BLR-1G Brawler - This is a short range heavily armored battlemaster build. It should be good for brawling but the large amount of medium lasers means it will run hot. It has 7 medium lasers, an AC10 and 20 double heat sinks to help combat the heat.

Battlemaster - BLR-1D

BLR-1D - Brawler and Light Killer - This is a short range heavily armored battlemaster build. This battlemaster build has 5xML, LB 10-X AC and 2 machine guns. This will be pretty brutal for close in fighting and the shotgun will make it pretty effective for swatting lights.

BLR-1D 3xAC2, 5xML Mixer - This has a mix of AC2 and Medium Lasers to lix things up at any range, it has a lot of armor but it has a max speed of 57.7 km/h. The good news about both of these builds is because of the high armor and standard engines they will take a lot of punishment.

Battlemaster - BLR-1S

BLR-1S - Streaker - This mech has 4 streaks, 4 medium lasers and a lot of speed to make this a deadly light killer.

BLR-1S Missle Boat - This is a LRM 50 Mech with BAP, AMS and 1620 rounds of LRM ammo.

BLR-1S Fast Bastard Sniper - Designed to keep up with slower Mediums/Heavys this Battlemaster packs two ER large lasers for sniping at range, two medium lasers for closer targets/heat cooldown, and four streaks w/3 tons of ammo and BAP for Light-killing and in-close targets. The XL 400 engine makes it top out at 76/83kph, making it one of the fastest Assaults.

This atlas D-DC build is a close range brawler build. I mainly use the SRM and AC20 grouped for most of my damage and usualy do not use the medium lasers due to keep my heat down. Medium lasers are used to augment damage when needed or to whack pesky lights. SRM and AC20 share the same cooldown period (4 seconds) so when fighting I will attack a target, torso twist to protect CT wait to cooldown is up twist back and repeat. I hardly ever have to worry about heat this way. I find this build makes use of my atlases armor to soak up damage and still allows me to deal a large anount of damage.
