This webpage,, is a place where you can find some of the best Mechwarrior Online builds in existence. All builds presented on this blog have been field tested, tweaked and perfected for days in order to maximize their potential. Rest assured that any setups you find here are ready to use and require no (or very little) further adjustments.

This site is not so much about Mech and build discussion or development. The builds here are already very polished. If you would like to discuss new builds or have suggestions of any kind, please leave a comment below the appropriate build. However, we recommend going to other forums in order to discuss builds in length (e.g. or the official forums). You will find many half-baked builds there, but also room to discuss them in length. If you are just interested in the distilled perfect builds and don´t want to engage in lengthy reading, stay on and pick your chassis above.
