In the far future of Battletech, it’s not just cars for General Motors…
Jumping in with the Blackjack, and interesting medium mech focusing on a fire support role.
For a lower battle value medium mech the strength of the Blackjack is found in the pair of AC/2- one of the longest range weapons in the game.
With a maximum range and ultra-low heat output, as soon as the Blackjack is in range to a target you start taking the shot.
Now at only 2 points of damage, the focus is not going to be on damage output- although we will take any damage output that we can get.
The value of the AC/2 is found in critical.
Against vehicles as they advance you can start putting motive hits on them.
Against mechs withdrawing or pulling back from the front ranks due to internal damage- you can threaten them and continue to try and critical that internal damage.
But the Blackjack is not just a pair of auto-cannons.
It has a brace of four medium lasers which when combined with the jump jets, make the mech a very good close in fighter- with just having to naturally watch the heat.
Jump in with further Blackjack tactica with my BATTLETECH vlog below.
See you in the game.
