Well looks like the secret is out. I guess I’ll post these guys now.
This is the King Crab. It’s piece of excavation equipment that formed the base for another MAV, the Basecavator.
This is the Basecavator. It’s a silly thing. It has a silly name. It’s slow. It has practically no armor. No ranged weapons. And if you sneak passed the enemy and attack their station, it’s four mining saws will level the place in 15 seconds. I’ve timed it.
The only thing it really has over the King Crab that makes it a “military” weapon is the comm link system.February 20, 2018 at 4:38 AM #144910SergeDavidModeratorColonelTotal posts : 3065
Tis a silly build. if the spacers where beefier then it’d look like it could be an MMV that was actually used before the war. Maybe all the extra stuff was stripped off to patch up other mechs?
I do like it though.February 20, 2018 at 6:32 AM #144911RustyShackyParticipantMaster SergeantTotal posts : 244
I can see playing with this thing on your team being like an escort mission. The entire team just protecting it on the way to the enemy base.
Also interesting seeing what the new Unity upgrade will do for the looks of it in the next update:February 20, 2018 at 9:22 AM #144923FelixT93ParticipantMajorTotal posts : 1787
Ah yes, the good ol’ “terrifying world ending but super slow mellee hex build whose only kills consist of volunteers”. 😀
Might be time to lift the ancient ring of fire from the history books.February 20, 2018 at 12:00 PM #144927SageThe13thParticipantPrivateTotal posts : 8
Or fools who get stuck on rocks. It’s like a movie monster. Sure it’s slow. But, once you are paying more attention to it than your surroundings and you run into a wall, it’s all over.
