What to get next?

Post by Ricer » Fri Apr 22, 2011 7:59 pm

OK what I have (PRDF): General Purpose Squad, Fire-Support Squad, and Patrol Squad.

Since when reading the rule book and it recommends, a 1000 TV 2 PL, what should I get that will help reach and make me more effective?

This is what I have as for a list so far, but I am open to any suggestion for what next or change in what I currently have.

Core:
(GP Squad)
Chieftain
Warrior
Warrior
Warrior
Warrior


Auxiliary:
(Patrol Squad)
Skirmisher
- Swap LRP for Satellite Up-Link
Skirmisher
Skirmisher
Skirmisher
Skirmisher

(Fire-Support Squad)
Chieftain
Swap LAC for RFB
Warrior
Swap LAC for RFB
Warrior
Crusader IV
SWAP HAC for MBZK
Crusader IV
Swap HAC for MBZK

Now as for how I am thinking of running what I have so far is to run the GP as a standard hold down the control points or cannon fodder for in front. The Patrol Squad would pretty much find and mark targets for any IF weapons I have(which at this point is only my rocket pods). As for the Fire-Support well they will mostly dish out the pain / go after the high-lighted targets.

So if anyone has a better load out as well as additions that I can make to get to 1000 TV PL 2 and be competitive, until then I will run my 850 TV PL 1. Thank you in advanced.

you could get a red bull or two and some cataphracts, they are bothe giant awesomeness and the cataphract is a monster in combat, you could also get some soldiers dn some atvs to go with them but that not as fun.

I'm not really a fan of bazookas on slow, FS-oriented Gears like Crusaders/Grizzlies. You already have a weapon (MRPs) that can dish out better damage or spread it around. I'd say stick with the HACs and use the points difference to buff the skills of your AC (remember you can only dish out as many CPs as your AC has LD per round).

They're also super cheap TV-wise.

you should also try a coyote squad because it is quite good in speed and attack, not sure about its tv thougth.

And you're not really a true PR player unless you have one Gearstrider on the table. Plus Coyotes can rock either an rail gun or guided missiles, and you get the Low Profile Perk in Ground mode. :lol:

yeah, so use the coyotes and redbull with pitbulls and use them as forward observers as they also dish out rpb and other high damage weapons. shinobi work alot better.
