The Hunchback 4SP is a mainstay of the MWO game. It provides decent speed, good firepower, and agility in a frame larger than a lights. It’s a very new player friendly mech and is often suggested as one of the go-to mechs for new players to purchase after amassing their starting c-bill cadet bonus. The medium lasers in the arm offers a wide arc of firing and more precise targeting for moving targets. The shoulder-mounted SRMs provide a stable firing platform that is easy to aim.
That being said, it is a medium mech and therefore not as durable as its larger brothers in the heavy and assault categories. For maximum effectiveness, it’s a good idea to flank your larger brethren in battle and assist with taking down the larger foes and any pesky lights that make their way to your flanks and rear. Unchecked, the 4SP can dish out a lot of damage.
