the thought of adding ba-pods to your mech would be optional equipment,
IF your mech has spare tonnage and you also dont mind having a ton less ammo for each missle/projectile weapon.
and each ba pod shot would be triggered by the pilot of the pod equipped mech, so the pilot would have to use a best guess where the ba are to get a kill
you could fake out a pilot using missles or a laser then fly over the enemy mech and the pod shot
from the mechs legs would miss...erm
just a balanceing idea. it will be cool to try out diffrent types of ba armor (just a extra 4-10 feet distance ba thruster plz)
BRINGIN THE POD ON THE URBIE !! ...hold still danget!
