What supersedes an Awesome when it comes to PPCs? Battlemasters? Not really durable for hillhumping. Banshees? Too slow for repositioning and has trouble defending itself at close range. Well, you know the answer, Stalker. Stalker with its hitboxes perfectly suited for facing your enemy and high mounted hardpoints mean a really bad day for the enemies. So, quickly into the Smurfy mechlab!
It turns out you can squeeze one more DHS in a Stalker-3F with the same build(2xPPC and 1xERPPC) and it does a good job at being a PPC machine gun. I played two rounds and while I did great damage and kill-wise in both of them(e-peen activated!), I was constantly harassed by lights and it ended me caught in a brawl which a single ERPPC didn't matter much. I needed some raw firepower!
Hmm how about those missile slots? Stalkers have plenty of missile hardpoints. If I could utilize them, maybe nothing would dare getting near me. Streaks would do just fine. Though if I wanted to keep those DHS, I needed to comprimise on my PPCs. After some consideration, I decided to lose my ERPPC and put 4xSSRM2 in my 3F, along with 21DHS. This turned out to be the killer combination, a lot of ranged damage combined with 20 raw SSRM2 damage at close range, pumped every 3.5 seconds.
This isn't enough though, can I turn it to 11? It turned out I can, I had a 5M laying around that was basic'd and never used again, which had an extra missile slot. It was only basic'd and felt slow and clumsy, not to mention its terrible torso yaw which is limited to 60 degrees. Considering I just wanted to hillhump with this beast and not brawl, it was still perfect for the job. After a few rounds, this guy was the result:
