Recently unfrozen from cryogenic bot storage (we still don't understand the technology behind it, but it had something to do with a very stubborn and salty professor who was unwilling to clean out his garage...), the Grinder Prime has just been uncovered alongside a new thumbnail preview and description style.
And now, without CPU limits and updated CPU counts on mega parts, it has room to be bigger, badder, and stronger than it ever was before.
Notable Parts include:
- 3 Laser Leviathans
- 2 Plasma Goliathons
- 3 Flak Sentinels
- 4 Titan Mech Legs
- 1 Hurricane Hover Blade
- 1 Weapon Energy Module
- 1 Windowmaker Module
Health Points: 11.349 million
Weight: 81563.5 kg
Top Speed: 118 MPH walking / 140 MPH galloping / 300 MPH falling
CPU: 7500 ---> 10000 power
Who needs weapon redundancy amiright?
In all seriousness, this isn't as much of an issue as it used to be, as anti-gunbrella is long dead, so now weapon HP actually gets used. In the (offline) combat testing that I have performed, this design holds onto its weaponry very well. The plasmas can survive heavy blast damage before falling off, and while the front laser falls off very quickly, the side mounted lasers almost never fall off (I haven't died in this design even after sitting in the middle of a M-Plasma dps AI, M-Laser dps AI, light plasma barrage tank, and light laser bot for about 5 minutes.)
In terms of an anti mega bot, this should cover multiple options. It has three flak cannons to deal with any flyers that might appear, two plasmas for heavy dps in the case of energy changes, and 3 MSMGs for more reliable damage in case the power settings aren't generous. Additionally, the power booster is a must, and the Windowmaker is for... I'm not really sure what it really is for, it just got me to the round number of 7500 CPU. So that's nice.
And if you didn't read the first description of this mega, well, it used to be stupidly tanky.
You better hope that you set the energy settings up, or else you are going to be staring at this beast for longer than you should ever imagine.
Megas are back, and I am a very happy man. And this is only the first, so stay tuned...
