CR-T Recruit

B-class

BriefingEdit

Quick info: Your first mech, custom-made from scrap parts with rookies in mind.

Short description: The CR-T Recruit was issued to all new pilots, until it was replaced by the Assault. With powerful, but simple weapons and a rookie-friendly special ability that reduces heat, this well-rounded mech is more than capable of holding its own against mechs of any class.

Ingame history: Known lovingly as "Screen-Head", "TV-Mech", or "Microwave", the M-D Fred was one of the first mechs deployed post Nano-Virus. Although Fred is made efficiently to minimize cost of valuable components, it is surprisingly versatile and powerful. Those who underestimate what a trained pilot can do with this mech may find themselves whispering the words "Fuzzy Bunny" just before death. Pilots whose mechs were destroyed by a Fred will sometimes rant about being killed by the "easybake oven" or "walking TV".

How to pilot the CR-T Recruit: Practice dodging and firing in controlled bursts. If you're about to overheat, activate Weapons Coolant and keep firing. Your can detonate your TOW Rocket in mid-air by pressing the middle mouse button. Knowing the right time to detonate requires practice.

How to defeat the CR-T Recruit: Stay mobile and try to flank if possible. CR-T Recruits are surprisingly dangerous. Watch for incoming TOW Rockets and be prepared to dodge.
