Mechwarrior Online: Meet Atlas – the terrifying battle mech

Posted By | On 06th, Aug. 2012 Under Video News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl

If there was ever a ‘Mech that inspired terror in those that faced it, it was the Atlas. Weighing in at 100 tons, boasting a small ‘Mechs weight in armour, and having two small ‘Mechs worth of weaponry, the Atlas is truly an awe inspiring sight. The unyielding, deliberate movements, and Deaths-Head skull all make the Atlas a truly imposing ‘Mech to face.

The Atlas takes a skilled and veteran pilot to be effective — an intimate knowledge of the weapon systems is required.

-The Left Torso contains your LRM 20, perfect for indirect fire, as well as an SRM 6 for added close-in punch
-The Left and Right Arms each contain a Medium Laser
-The Centre Torso contains an additional two Medium Lasers
-The Right Torso contains your go-to weapon, the AC/20

Heat management, knowledge of weapon grouping and weapon ranges are all necessary to make the most of this fearsome ‘Mech. Mastery of these facets will rain destruction on any who face you.

Keep in mind, however, that the Atlas is not the fastest ‘Mech, and that being attacked from behind is a very constant and real threat. Scan your battlefield carefully, as even a single Jenner can ruin your day. Careful positioning is key, as is fire discipline — learn your weapons ranges, as you will be switching between them as you close with the enemy.
