MechWarrior Online: new trailer shows catapult in action
MechWarrior Online’s ‘Founders’ programme has just revealed a new trailer for its catapult weapon.
Developer Piranha Games also detailed the weapon on the official MechWarrior Online site, along with the following descriptor:
“The Catapult C1 is a long-range, indirect fire support Mech, with a blistering amount of Long Range Missiles at its disposal. Perfect for raining down fire on enemies you can’t even see the, duo of LRM-15s will ensure your target has a bad day.”
2Difficult to counter – especially if it has a scout Mech spotting for it – the Catapult excels at staying out of enemy range and continuing to pound away with it’s missiles. With an excellent top speed of 64 km/h and jumpjets, the Catapult has a surprising amount of manoeuvrability for a Heavy Mech. If enemies get into close range four medium lasers add to this Mechs already potent arsenal.”
