Title: "Club Med Wubs" (8x MPL, XL 325, TC1)

This probably sucks but hey, trying. Losing an arm ain't gonna be fun.
Any input welcome.

Honestly, yours just has too much wasted tonnage.

Here's what I came up with for my 'Octopulsy' build for my standard SNV-1.



Differences:
- Standard 325. Sure, there are no center-line weapons on this 'mech, so you can't zombie with it & still be a threat, but since you can't put a 350+ engine in this, there's no point in using a XL engine if all you're going to run are 8 MPLs.
- 2 Jump Jets, one in each leg. If the 'mech can mount jump jets, you should mount jump jets. Even just 1 helps.
- Standard Armor, with the legs at 69 each for optimized tonnage, & max armor everywhere else.
- TC2 in the CT & a CAP in the head, both for increased target acquisition speed.

When I get around to building my 'Octopulsy' Supernova in-game, I may move some heat sinks to the arms to crit-pad the MPLs, but looking back that's really the only change I'd make.

Any build wasting 21 tons is bad tbh :P



This is better, and probably my favourite.


If you want to run 8 MPL instead (MPL are the best clan laser atm), just go with some memeworthy SHS.
