Getting Free Mechs
To get Free mechs, use your ressource points (RP).
Those you have usualy at the begining of a
mission, that you can increase during a mission
by capturing any ressource bunkers and trucks.
You will lose the RPs at the end of the mission
so, before, spot any mech that can be salvaged
(it must be on line of sight of 1 of your mechs),
and use your RPs to salvage the most of them.
When you finish, the mechs will get repaired for
free and available for the next mission. :)
Try to have allways 1/2 fast 30/40 ton mech with
jump jets on each mission. You can use it to lure
others into ambush. And you can use it to capture
I think the Sha-Yu is perfect for this job. First
i atract any unit guarding the turrets to an
ambush, then i go around, spot the best path
(pause the game for this) and use it's speed, to
capture before the turrets can fire.
For most missions the Zeus is the best. It can
carry a pretty big payload and can move pretty
fast too. If you need to kill a bunch of mechs
use the atlas, if fact, use two if you have the
money. Also max out your mechs armor.
