MWO - Mech no5 revealed

The Catapult, one of the absolute classic Battletech mechs, gets brought BANG up to date with it's redesign for Mechwarrior Online.

I've always liked the style of the Catapult, but it was one that I was a little doubtful on how good it would look today, as much of the older Battletech artwork has dated very badly. Thankfully and once again, I'm very impressed with how Piranha are making the old mech designs relevant.

Can't wait to see some in-game screenshots!

For reference here's how the Catapult looked in Mechwarrior 4, screenie thanks to gamespot.


  1. They could also add the cockpit of a He111. And maybe add an autocannon to the nose, though this would no longer look like the Catapult then.... hmmm!

  2. Love Sith Inquisitor and share it.swtor credits at Can be ranged DPS/Healer or melee DPS/Tank.Advanced class choice made at level 10, where you gain access to three skill tree's.Uses force points for pacing mechanic.Able to deflect blasters from front or back.Uses Single blade or Double bladed light sabers.Whether the Inquisitor wields a Lightsaber with lightning-sharp attacks, or just Force Lightning itself, it’s always a dazzling display of deadly energy.Expertise in conducting Force energies further allows Inquisitors to draw upon the life essence of themselves and others. This energy can be channeled to bolster their powers, harm their foes, star wars the ole republic credits at . and even to reinvigorate their allies.An Inquisitor’s skills with a Lightsaber are equally impressive. Often wielding a double-bladed Lightsaber, Inquisitors use quick, guileful, and lethal maneuvers to strike their enemies down with astonishing speed.Channeling this Force energy, Inquisitors are capable of draining the life from their enemies and using it to feed themselves and their allies.
