View Full Version : The most awesome weapon I've found so far in CC!

On Confeds mission 5 last night. I'd got to the point where I'd defeated the wookie encampments to the north and south and now had to cross the river to the wookie/republic encampment where the decimator facilities are. Upto this point I'd mainly been using 'heavy weapons' stuff but I decided to change to Mech Factory 'stuff' for a change. I upgraded the heavy assualt Mech Tank ( the one on the far right of the 4 choices) and ordered a dozen of these becuase it said in the description that these were good for 'destroying encampments'. Boy were they not wrong, these things are indestructible and unstoppable, they literally wiped out everything (there were no air threats at this point, which would be a weakness for them), troopers, workers, CC's, Fortresses, turrets, you name it, no problem for these guys!!!! What a laugh, I went through that encampment in no time!

Which I used this earlier on now!:)

Errmm...the assault mech was in SWGB to, i think everyone here knows about it and it's usefullness.

Yeah, if my message came across as 'I have discovered something so to speak', it was not intended that way...sorry!
I can't remember much now about GB and it's weapons, it's just that I personally can't recall using a vehicle before, that seemed so impervious to any attack (apart from air) and yet was so destructive itself....
All I did to tackle that wookie/Republic part of the map was walk through it with 'Tann (sp?) and 6 of these things and I didn't suffer any harm...this surprised me because I suffered a lot of casualties using heavy weapons and troopers for the 2 wookie encampments to the North and South.

Assault mechs are hardly "impervious". A few mech destroyers (IIRC a 3:1 ratio) will destroy them, and considering an assault mech costs a lot of nova while mech destroyers are only carbon and food, cost effectively your army would be beaten. Grenadiers could also work if you had your mechs closely packed, but the grenadiers would have to be staggered and I don't think the computer AI knows how to do that. Jedi could get under the mechs' minimum range and cut them apart in seconds. Even troopers could get under the range and attack the mechs without being hit back, though I think it would take awhile for laser troopers to do any real damage.

Also bombers can take em out in a snap if someone is carrying air units. Assult mechs usually are used to take out turrets and walls. Always accompany them with air units or anti-air. And they cost as much as my house.

And a single jedi master can obliterate several of them...

and they harldy got any armour a couple shots from some troops and they blow up your best bet is to keep the things inside some sheilding and only use it at other mech vechiles they may have a powerfull atack buut well they aint that amazing

and i myself my own opion think heavy air bombers are one of the best things in the game as many people dont have anti air missle turnets in online games

I usually don't have a lot of AA missile turrets in games, but I do tend to have a buttload of fighters hanging around. :) Course, I'm an air enthusiast...
