New Mech Preview: Reaper

New Mech Preview: Reaper

The latest mech from Prosk is stomping off the production line and will be available to pilots looking to line up and gun down their foes from afar! The Reaper is the machine for any mission that involves venturing alone into enemy territory. Effectively combining precision and speed, this high-accuracy light mech is the steel embodiment of rogue-like flexibility.

Hell's yea!  I know what I'll be spending my well earned blue dough on!

Its going to be like a release of a champ in lol, except instead of only one person per team its going to be all of them and NO ONE WILL KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

Next week? nobody is playing it because everyone has deemed the mech unplayably weak.
God I hope it's sweet, whatever it is. the weapon I mean. and I hope it goes on the SS for prestige. high power semi-auto or burst cannon hopefully.

My Sharpshooter will be in dire need of Zoloft.

I needed a new A class.
YES! I was hoping beyond hope that the next one would be a sniper A Class!!!!
Nice, well handled a sharpshooter is really a good asset in team games, just imagining this mech and a good sharpshooter, sniper combo + Rifles Combo

The new gun is obviously a Micro-Flak Cannon. It shoots a single piece of shrapnel at a time, at an extremely fast rate.

I love the smell of hitscan in the morning.

why does half of the optic grating have cloth over it?

Eyepatches only look good on people

Shouldn't we have new maps as a priority over new mechs?

I reflect to a post i made in another from another forum:

New mechs are nice but new maps would be better. How about a new mode?
The same 4 maps... Over and over and over again, with only slight variation...

I need new.

I want fresh! :angry:

Now you can die even faster lining up shots while someone on the other side of the map takes you out with their laser sighted assault rifle?

Maybe we could add some actual spread to a few weapons before making more precision oriented mechs.
I'm not sure...it's a smaller, faster Sharpshooter. Slug and Sabot. Are we meant to assume this is a radically different playstyle?

edit: maybe it isn't a Slug Rifle.
uhh, theyve had these mechs in planned release for upto 12 months, so this mech was likely done quite a while  ago and slated to release around now.

black hats everywhere..

go eat some subway then.

I don't think Sabot would do so well on an A class imo

a DMR-type roll would be better suited, so maybe instead, you should use a slug primary, and modified Hawkens as the secondary
We dont know what its special ability is yet and the features of its primary, wait till we get to try it out before making judgements imo..

Hope they get the crosshair alignment bug fixed before he comes out.
nice, can't wait!
Maybe I will be able to put my SS on the shelf for a while with this introduction...?

one of the dumbest looking mechs i've ever seen. this is likely not the work of either park or le. they must be outsourcing

keep your hate to yourself, or at least, explain your reasoning in constructive form
