Our Mechs have continued to progress and grow and level up. We have taken the time to look at each of our Mechs individually, however, we have as of yet to look at how our Mechs work together and the different benefits we will find in them. Today we are going to take a closer look at our Mechs and how they impact different aspects of the game and the things you need to know. This will essentially serve as your Mech Cheat Sheet.
At this point in the game, we have four different Mechs and each has its own use. While some of the Mechs have slightly higher stats than the others they all still have a use and specialized skills. The Four Mechs we currently have in Mobile Strike are:
- The Reborn Mech
- The Inferno Mech- Infantry
- The Hydro Mech- Tactical
- The Terra Mech- Armored Vehicle
These Mechs follow the normal combat wheel with their strength.
However, when we are looking at our Mechs there are many aspects to consider and that is what we are going to be covering today. We will start with Mechs for economy functions and then move into combat functions.
Mechs for Economy
When it comes to Economy Functions there is only one Mech with Economy Skills and that is our Reborn Mech. We are not going to spend much time in this section because it is self-explanatory. If you are completing the functions your Reborn has boosts for making sure you have the skills filled in. Here you can find boosts for Construction, Research, Training, and more. Ensuring that your Reborn Mech is skilled correctly when completing these functions is important to make sure that you are getting the most benefit.
Mechs for Defenders
Defenders are fortunate enough to be able to use all four Mechs to defend at once. In addition, as we explored in earlier articles it is beneficial to unlock and skill the newer Mechs even if you are not yet able to level them up. However, there are some other things that we should look at as defenders including reinforcement and skilling overall.
Reinforcing with Mechs
One thing that is important to note when you are reinforcing other players with your Mech is that this is not like reinforcing with troops. If you send a Mech that is skilled badly it will impact the player you are reinforcing. This is because your Mech does not take on the other player’s stats as your troops would. It maintains your skills.
So how should you skill your Mech when reinforcing?
When you are reinforcing your Mech make sure you are skilling it using the defense recommendations for that Mech. For example, if you are reinforcing with the Inferno Mech make sure you are skilling it heavily on type stats as that is what is going to benefit defenders the most.
What Mech should you use to reinforce?
If you are reinforcing with your Mech make sure you are sending your strongest Mech. In
addition, if you are able to scout and see what troops the attacker is sending you are able to reinforce with a Mech that directly counters their march. For example, if they are sending an Inferno Mech then reinforce with a Hydro Mech.
Skilling and Leveling your Mechs
When we move into this section we really need to break our Mechs into two categories:
- The Reborn
- The Elemental Mechs
The Reborn Mech
With the Reborn Mech being our first Mech it is going to look a little different than the elemental Mechs. We really see this Mech become strong enough to defend at the Reborn Levels which is level 100 and beyond. Here we will begin to see stats that are meant to strengthen our troops in conjunction with our Mech. When we are looking at skills as a Defender here we want to focus in on:
- Reborn Skill
- Base Defender Stats
When it comes to extra points you can choose to put them in the HP or Regeneration skills or the Economy Skills. However, the skills that are going to impact you the most as a defender are listed above.
The Elemental Mechs
When we say the Elemental Mechs we are referring to Inferno, Hydro, and Terra Mechs. These Mechs can be addressed together because they all behave similarly with slight differences. We cover more about these Mechs in their respective articles. However, we do want to give you some important takeaways here.
- These Mechs help improve your results as a Defender even at level one so they are worth unlocking even if you are currently unable to level them up.
- These Mechs seem more attack focused, however, the type stats they offer are really beneficial to defenders. This is even more true considering the act that when we are defending we are defending with all of our Mechs at once.
When we look at skills for these Mechs it is actually really easy when it comes to these three. Most of the stats on these Mechs are intended for attackers or Control Point players. Including things such as Base Assault and Control Point Stats. However, the type stats are really what is going to help defenders. So that is where you will want to focus on when you skill your Mechs. Level these guys as you are able but start using them as soon as you unlock them.
Mechs for Attackers and Control Point Players
When we look at Mechs for Attackers and Control Point Players things are a little different. While all of the Mechs have some use there is a need to consider the fact that you can only send one Mech in a march. Any other Mechs for reinforcing the Control Point or filling a rally you are going to depend on your team for. This means that it is important that your team knows what you need from them when it comes to Mechs and skills.
Filling Rallies and the Control Point with your Mech
It is important to note that when we look at this aspect of gameplay it is similar to reinforcing other players with Mechs. When you fill a rally or reinforce the Control Point with your Mech it does not behave the same as troops. While your troops take on the stats of the lead your Mech does not. This means that how you skill your Mech for these functions is important as well. You do not want to send a lead a Mech that is skilled for attack when you are playing at the Control Point.
So how should you skill your Mech for these functions?
When you are skilling your Mech to fill a rally or reinforce Control Point you should skill it for that function. Take your Inferno Mech and say you are skilling it to fill a rally, you will want to ensure that you skill Base Assault Stats as well as your Type Stats and Battlemark stats.
What Mech should you use for these functions?
The best thing to do here is to ask your Lead. When your lead sets a rally or is reinforcing Control Point ask them what Mech they want. However, this is an area where the level of the Mech is important as well because the higher the level of your Mech the stronger it is. So make sure you verify that your Mech is a high enough level as well before sending. If the option is between your Mech and a stronger Mech let stronger Mechs fill first.
What Mech should you use as a Lead?
You have a few options here. I recommend that you use your strongest Mech as a lead. The Terra Mech has the highest stats when it comes to Base Assault, however, if not leveled high enough it may be weaker than your Inferno or Hydro Mech. In addition, if you are able to get a scout report off your target you can also choose your Mech by targetting a specific troop type.
Skilling and Leveling your Mechs as a Lead
Once again we are going to separate our Mechs into two categories as we look at them in this section.
- The Reborn
- The Elementals
The Reborn Mech
This Mech is not as strong for attackers as the new Elemental Mechs. Even at lower levels, the new Mechs are going to outshine the reborn. This has led to the Reborn Mech not being used as much. Therefore, our current recommendation is to level this bad boy all the way up and then skill him for Defense and economy functions as needed. When it comes to attacking and Control Point our biggest focus is going to be the Elemental Mechs.
The Elemental Mechs
With our elemental Mechs, you are going to want to level these as high as possible. You will see the highest stats for attackers and type stats and general troop stats on the Terra Mech. However, each of these Mechs has its own troop type specialty. Skilling should focus in on the Base Assault Stats for attackers and the Control Point Stats for Control Point players. After these, you will focus on the type stats and then the overall troop’s stats.
We have covered a lot today when it comes to your Mech Dimension Mechs. However, we tons more info out there for you. Make sure you are keeping up to date on the stats and the strategy.
