The MechWarrior Online site has been updated with a detailed description of the BattleMech 6: Centurion. MechWarrior fans will be well-acquainted with the Centurion but the team wanted to reintroduce the old standby to those who might be new to the MW franchise.
The CN9-A Centurion isn’t about any one thing, it’s about every thing. AC/10? Check. LRM-10? Check. Two Medium Lasers? Check. There’s no area of weapons this baby is bad at – you’ve got the LRM-10 to chew ‘em up at range - and believe me, ten long range missiles can ruin your day fast, am I right guys? – then your AC/10 reaches out and slugs ‘em upside the head, then if they make it through that they get two medium lasers in the face at close range, with that AC/10 still kickin’. In short, there’s pretty much no-where you can be that this baby can’t – and won’t – hit you. And just look at it. It’s tall, but lean. It’s like an ancient, armoured warrior. Sure it’s a little slow, but wouldn’t you be slow if you had that kinda weaponry?
