Awesome AWS-8T is a Assault-class 'Mech in Battletech.
Description[edit | edit source]
The 8T variant of the Awesome replaces the stock model's PPCs with two LRM-15 racks and two Large Lasers, as well as dropping five heat sinks. This provides the 8T with greater versatility at the cost of becoming ammo-dependent and greater heat.
Loadouts[edit | edit source]
- Dump a LL to upgrade the LRM's to 20's if you haven't put together a Catapult or Stalker yet. Better yet, dump both LL's in favor of upgrading LRM's to 20's, adding a couple of Medium Lasers, and a second ton of ammo per missile system so you won't shoot yourself dry, especially in extended missions.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- One flaw this model Awesome has is the fact the majority of the ammunition is stored in the center torso. If you can find a way to detonate it (either by exposing the structure or getting a critical hit with a gauss rifle), you can instantly disable the mech', depriving the enemy of a major resource in battle.
