Jagermech JM6-DD Ballistic Build – Maximum Dakka!

Jagermech DD Ballistic Build with ACs and lots of Dakka!

MWO Jagermech DD Ballistic Build Brawler Guides

Jagermechs are revered and feared for their high amount of ballistic slots. This Jagermech DD build utilises all 6 (in words “six”) ballistic hardpoints. A guide that will blow your mind, enemies, and your headset to bits. The build is a lot of fun to play and still more than effective enough to destroy PUG games. The idea for this build comes from a good friend of mine, Strawberry5. He is a decent pilot, knows how to think out of the box, and pilots his Jagermechs (including a Firebrand) with great skill.

In order to accompany all the heavy ballistic weapons in this chassis, the armor has been reduced to the bare minimum. It is also recommended that you put a high emphasis on the front side torsos and only put minimalistic amounts of armor on your rear shoulders. Downsizing the engine is not recommended, since your Mech will already move very slowly.

Misery Hybrid Build Playstyle and Hints

  • Use the Jagermech’s unique geometry to expose yourself as little as possible. The ballistic weapon hardpoints are mounted on a very high position. Try to get a feeling for how far you must expose your Mech in order to fire. Never go further out than necessary.
  • Try to fight at range if possible. The double Machine Guns and Small Lasers increase your close range damage a lot. However, the low movement speed and minimalistic armor values will ensure a quick death if you are caught off guard by other more heavily armored brawlers with SRMs and the like.
  • If you become entangled in a fire fight which you would probably lose, retreat immediately, but also try to keep firing while doing so. The screen shaking power of four ballistic weapons will make it impossible for the enemy to aim at your properly and many players will be scared by the special effects shrouding their screens.

Cataphract 2X Insane Brawler

Cataphract 2X Brawler Build

MWO Best Cataphract 2x Brawler Build Foreword

I am a great fan of the Cataphract chassis. I bought a 4X, 2X, and 1X right when they came out. However, the CTF-3D and the Hero Mech variant “Ilya Muromets” are much more popular. While those are really fun and powerful variants, I wanted to beat something with my 2X and 1X. So this guide came to life. See how a Cataphract 2X can easily deal as much damage as the more popular variants. People will only underestimate you until you blasted the second Assault Mech in their team to bits.

This build features everything you need. The Cataphract 2X brawler build is like the whole family fun package. A Gauss Rifle for long range shots and in order to add critical pinpoint damage while brawling. It can also be used in the rare case of running on high heat. Three Medium Lasers will serve as your all-purpose weapons. Finally, double SRM6 will be your melee range blaster. The recent MWO patch buffed their damage even further. Note, that all screenshots where taken before this patch and the damage values were already insanely high. Especially when encountering Assault Mechs, the SRM6s will provide the critical damage needed to take them down quickly.

Cataphract 2x Playstyle and Hints

  • Although your Cataphract 2X is equipped with a Gauss Rifle, the most damage can be dealt at close range. Try to engage in brawls early on for maximum output.
  • This build is very heat efficient. Do not fear to fire all weapons at all times. In the rare case of running on high heat, continue firing your SRM6s and the Gauss Rifle only.
  • The combination of a Cataphract chassis and an XL-engine make you very susceptible to frontal attacks. Try to hug buildings, ledges, and cliffs at all times.

Note, that the following screenshots where taken before the recent buff to SRM damage. You should be able to easily reach or even surpass those numbers.

Jagermechs Dual AC/20 (all Variants including Firebrand)

Jagermech Dual AC20

It has been a few weeks since the Jagermech made its splash in the MWO scene. Sporting easily some of the best ballistic hardpoint setups available, it has quickly become a very beloved (and hated) chassis. Especially the Jagermech dual AC 20 builds have risen in popularity due to their ability to quickly kill people in PUG matches. This guide works with every variant of the Jagermech. The last patch nerfed dual AC/20 builds alpha strike potential. However, your overall damage per second is still the same. More on this in section Playstyle below. To see which variant is best for you (apart from building a dual AC 20), check out the following list:

  • JM6-S : The most versatile of all the variants. Used in tournament play.
  • JM6-DD : Offers the most ballistic slots. Fun chassis for ballistic weapon freaks (dakkadakka!).
  • JM6-A : Has missile hardpoints, which the other chassis don´t.
  • JM6-Firebrand : Hero Mech. If you don´t mind the MC price, this will be a comfortable tool to farm huge amounts of c-bills in no time at all.

As mentioned above, this build works with every variant. If you want more armor/lasers, tune down the engine to an XL 260.

Playstyle and Hints

  • Be aware of the latest MWO patch! You will overheat instantly when attempting to fire both AC/20s at the same time. Set them to chain fire (default hotkey BACKSPACE) and click twice slowly. If you overheat, you have clicked too quickly. This will reduce your pinpoint damage, but overall damage output will still be the same.
  • Aiming is key! You will deal a lot of damage by just firing randomly at your enemies, but you will kill them in seconds if you aim for the right parts.
  • You are very fast and agile (for your weight class and armament). Use this to quickly flank, flee, engage or whatever it needs to get into a good firing position.
  • Shoulders, rear Center Torso and Legs should be your primary targets. If your enemy is holding still, aim for the cockpit.
  • Do not try to hit enemies further away than a couple hundred meters. If your ammo is expended or you overheat, you are a worthless to your team.

Cataphract CTF-2X Dual SRM6 Brawler


Updated Version of this Cataphract 2X Brawler Guide is available!

Note: An updated version (July 2013) of this Cataphract 2X brawler build guide is available. Click here to view it.


This build provides a short description of a nice CTF-2X brawler build with relatively high damage output (whooping 50 alpha strike) while still maintaining a very nice heat efficiency to fight for extended periods of time. Long range combat is not recommended but you will still be able to harass over long distances with an Ultra AC/5.

Armor - StandardStandard StructureStandard HeatsinksNo ArtemisSorry, no mwo.smurfy-net.de link available, yet.

Build Info and Engine

  • Cataphract CTF-2X
  • XL Engine 255
  • Max Armor except legs (~51 each)

Armament

  • 3x Medium Laser
  • 1x Ultra AC/5 (~2x ammo)
  • 2x SRM 6 (~3x ammo)
  • 1x Anti-Missile-System (1x ammo)

Playstyle and Hints

  • Despite being a heavy and having a considerable amount of armor: play save, do not lead the charge. Use the increased speed from the engine to outmaneuver your opponents.
  • You will be an easy victim for LRM boats despite having an AMS and driving a heavy chassis. Try to avoid open spaces at all times.
  • If you spot enemies at the horizon, use heat vision (hotkey H) and zoom (hotkey Z) and place some single UltraAC/5  hits. Most enemies will duck behind cover and cease to or not even open fire.
  • If you are not proficient with SRMs, yet, set your SRM6s weapon group to chain fire (hotkey BACKSPACE) and fire single bursts. If you want to fire both missiles at the same time, double tap the weapon group´s hotkey.
  • Remember that you can use your mouse cursor (yellow circle) to aim your SRM6s.
