MechWarrior Online: Atlas Shrugged

Piranha Games has put the behemoth Atlas mech in the MechWarrior Online spotlight today. The mech is no lithe, weighing in over 100 tons. The tonnage allows the Atlas to carry an impressive payload of long- and short-range missiles, a cache of four medium lasers and the handy autocannon.

A far different mech than the more spry Jenner or even another heavy hitter like the Centurion, Atlas combatants need to be aware of their surroundings. All the heavy weapons and armor mean heat management will be a constant juggling act, especially in the environmental hell of the Caustic Valley.

Capable of leveling a city single handedly, the Atlas is one of the perk mechs included in the Founders program. Hit the jump for the Atlas’ deadly trailer.
