MechWarrior Online has a new hulking death machine on offer, and os offering a sweet XP boost motivation to come check it out.

The Spider is said to be one of the most agile of the mechs on offer, boasting eight jump jets and an unrivalled turning radius, according to Massively.

Another commando hero mech, Death’s Knell, is also on the way. Check both out in the screens below.

Piranha Games has been adding mechs fairly regularly, so if you haven’t checked in for a while you’re in for a treat – especially as this weekend offers double XP.

The bonus offer runs from 10:00AM PST January 18 to 10:00AM PST January 21, and its multiplier stacks with any others you have earned through purchasing Founder packages or similar.
