Piranha Games has announced the arrival of one of the fastest light mechs in MechWarrior Online. Called the Spider Mech, it is said to be fierce and quick and have an amazingly small turning radius. In addition, players will be able to take advantage of a three day event with double experience beginning January 18th.
Smaller yet important content additions accompanied the Spider Mech reveal today as the new Decay Target pilot module offers the power to keep the enemy target Mech in sight longer. This valuable time advantage of up to an additional 1.5 seconds (from the default 2 seconds) may make the difference in being able to take down enemies in heated battles, giving pilots the critical edge they need. This week’s patch also includes another pilot focused content upgrade – a Sensor Range Pilot Module – boosting sensor range from 15 to 25 percent. Finally, players can also outfit their Mech with the new custom Woodland pattern, which is available in the Mech Bay today.
