Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries is a battlemech piloting simulation and part of the Mechwarrior and Battletech universe unleashed by FASA Studios. In April 2010, MekTek received permission from Microsoft to release the game for free using their MekMatch torrenting program. Now that MekTek has refocused its energies on Mechwarrior Online, it is up to the community to keep the classic mech piloting tradition alive. This group will also serve as a platform for downloading new content created by the community, including new maps and mech decals, some of which have been hosted by other enthusiast sites.
This pack contains mech variants, useful for improving bot loadouts or as references for the campaign. Visitors are encouraged to submit their own variants for inclusion in future mech variant packs! WinRar is required to open the file.
Do your bots suck? Do you find yourself easily annihilating a room full of Level 9s? Need ideas for campaign loadouts? Try some of these variants for starters to improve your bot prowess!
This pack contains a small amount of player-made mech loadouts. These can be used as loadouts for bots or as references for the campaign.
