Systems are all the components of a battlemech that aren't weapons or armor/chassis.

Types of systems

  • Heat sinks: Disperse heat accumulated by the mech.
  • Jump jets: Allow for jumping the mech across the battlefield
  • Cockpits: All 'Mechs come equipped with a stock cockpit configuration, which can be upgraded for improved performance. Cockpit Mods upgrade the structure of the area the MechWarrior occupies during combat, granting increased protection from mortal injuries.
  • Target tracking systems: All 'Mechs come equipped with a stock targeting and tracking system-or TTS-which can be upgraded for improved performance. Upgrades increase accuracy when attacking with Ballistic, Energy, or Missile weaponry, depending on the type of TTS.
  • Gyros: Gyros counteract the massive amounts of momentum generated from 'Mech engines and allow for precision maneuvering and recovery from stability-impacting attacks. All 'Mechs come equipped with a stock Gyro, which can be upgraded for improved performance.
  • Actuators: Actuators control a 'Mech's limbs and are used to perform Melee attacks at close quarters. All 'Mechs come equipped with stock Actuators, which can be upgraded for improved performance.
