    With an extremely narrow profile on a biped chassis, the Hornet is a hard-to-hit attacker.
    It totes six LGT X.Y6 Cannons for very strong ranged potential and are tightly grouped to enable accurate bumper fire.
    In addition it also carries a wall deploy for that on-demand shielding.


    (Note: The blade radiator was removed from the build, the released build travels at 58km/h as a result. )

    Level Requirements:
    Player: 30
    Scout: 10
    Sniper: 15
    Defender: 3
    Attacker: 14

    Edit: DMG variant removed, it was somewhat of an afterthought and I ended up exclusively using the RNG variant. That and the DMG’s lack of a good gun cam made it really bad beyond close range.

    This is a really nice looking build and really reminds me a lot of the old Chromehound builds I used to fight against!

    Wouldn’t be lying if I said that the Hornet was loosely inspired by a Chromehounds build I used for a while back in those days. 🙂

    Managed to win a 1v6 skynet siege match though, Delvin’s dirty dwarven Spartan was among them as was Saido’s Shogun Carrier. I didn’t mess with the difficulty settings, forgot that actually makes a difference until I was about half way through, lol.

    this build is very akin to the chromehounds Japanese cannon builds.

    huge did a good job on this video of building some of the most common cannon variations.

    A lot of those chromehounds builds would be pretty bad in MAV.

    Bah humbug Cyber. You can’t even make some of the more fun chromehound builds due to part sizes / connection locations.
