The 'Spider' mech should have a nice advantage.

Piranha Games has revealed the latest map for MechWarrior Online. The mechanized behemoths will be stomping through the mineral rich and brutally hot environment of the Caustic Valley, aka CMO 26.

The environment is so treacherous that it will severely affect each vertical tanks cooling capabilities, drastically altering gameplay mechanics. The larger the mech, the more the environment will force players to alter their strategy, giving an edge to the faster rabbit-punching mechs.
