MWO August 20th Patch Notes Summary – 3rd Person View, Medium Quirks, Kintaro

Mechwarrior Online Patch Notes 08/20/2013

Here is a quick summary of all the important things you need to know about the MWO patch, August 20th 2013.

  • 3rd Person View is now in the game. It can be toggled by pressing F4.
  • Kintaro is now available for c-bills.
  • New Champion Mech: Catapult A1(C).
  • Weapon buffs: LBX-10, UltraAC/5, StreamSRM2.
  • Weapon nerfs: Machine Gun, AC2.
  • Medium Mechs now have unique boosts and quirks, making them more agile.
  • In Conquest, the losing team gets less c-bills for acquired resources.
  • Lava patches in Terra Therma are more dangerous.
  • Many places where you could get stuck in River City and Terra Therma have been fixed.

I like the weapon changes a lot. The AC/2 nerf is no biggie, it was more of a timing problem. The increased quirks for Medium Mechs are also nice. The Blackjack, Centurion, Cicada, Hunchback, Kintaro, and Trebuchet are way too rare on the battlefield nowadays. They can now pitch their torsos further, have increased twist speeds and some may even fit a larger engine.
