6x PPC Stalker STK-3F Extreme Sniper

Caution, old build!

This is the second featured Stalker setup in the current series of Stalker builds. When resorting to a xl-engine, it is possible to equip this chassis with 6x PPC. This equals an alpha strike of 3 AC 20s but is able to fire twice as far. Making killing blows is very easy with this build. There are only very few other builds which can produce such an big alpha strike.

Playstyle and Hints

  • Do not be afraid to do a shoot which will overheat you. But only do this if you are sure to at least heavily cripple your enemy.
  • PPCs have a minimum range of 90m. Light Mechs will tear you to shreds. Always stay with some lighter Mechs which can aid you.
  • Enable Arm-Lock in the options menu. This way you will ensure maximum pinpoint damage.
  • Even heavy Mechs can be two-shoted with this build. Always aim for center torso (worst case scenario: you rip out a shoulder)
  • You alpha-strikes generate 50-75 heat (depending on map). Do not shoot if you are already at 80-99 heat or your engine will blow up.

    Lamer PPC scrub builds, grow some balls and learn to play

      I hope they will do something about AC/40 and PPC/Gauss boating soon. It frustrates me as well. However, this blog is dedicated to bring you the most pubstomping builds, and this is definitely one of the best Stalker builds out there which is able to accomplish exactly that. Please do not confuse my personal opinion with this blog´s agenda. If your enemies are raging about you, then you are doing something right :)

    Do you have to buy the STK-3F? the 5S looks like it can do it as well

    • blackcud  says:

      Yes, the 5S can be used as well. The 3F and the 5S are very similar.
