Heavy Mech Builds

This is a listing of common mech builds used for heavy mechs in MWO. Heavy mechs fill many roles such as: sniper, support, brawler, light killer, etc. None of the heavy mechs have ECM. The strength of heavys include a good amoun of hardpoints for weapons and good armor. Heavy mechs often lack speed.

Dragon Builds:

Dragon mechs are very well rounded having hardpoints for missle systems, bulistics and energy weapons in every varient. The downside of this mech is the large CT.

Catapult Builds:

This is one of the most popular heavy mechs in the multiplayer battletech universe. Catapults make excellent support mechs but also can have short range punch.

Catapult - CPLT-A1 - Missle Boat

This mech has 6 missle hard points but they are all in the ears(arms). This mech is weak to having its weapons striped by losing its ears.

CPLT-A1 Streak Cat - This is a good mech when there is no ECM around, unfortunately you will not find this happening very often due to the populatity of ECM mechs currently.

CPLT-A1 5xSRM6 Cat - When making a SRM cat you have to keep in mind yes you can fit 6xSRM6's on but you have to sacrific movement speed, ammo, cooling or armor and those are variable that are very hard justify for the additional SRM6.
