The Warhammer is a slow, well-armored heavy 'mech with a diverse set of loadouts including brawlers, skirmishers, generalists, and snipers. Generally a good choice for tanking.

Roles and Gameplay Hints

Prime

Uniquely excellent Inexpensive twist fighter and tanker. Good at pushing and holding objectives.

Player Comments:
Only Warhammer with a Standard engine, giving low damage transfer. Chain fire PPCs to improve its already decent heat capacity or to spread out screen shake. Can operate for a long time without ammo resupply.
- Warlord Kentax


Variant A

Fire-support asset. Prone to staring, dependent on allies to tank and distract enemies at medium-range, dependent on screen shake when staring in close-combat.

Player Comments:
Group-fire the LPLs until the yellow line, then using a second weapon group, chain-fire them to avoid overheat. Chain-fire the SSRMs to maximize screen-shake and conserve its limited ammo in close combat.
- Warlord Kentax


Variant B

Good sniper effective at suppressing other snipers in open terrain. Can lead a push onto an objective if needed.

Player Comments:
Chain-fire the HVAC10s to suppress enemies more effectively. Buy HVAC10 ammo for all 4 free tons.
- Warlord Kentax


Variant C

Somewhat stealthy, good at pushing and holding objectives. Offers better Screen Shaking, anti-LRM and scouting support capabilities, and battlefield awareness than similar brawlers.

Player Comments:
Chain-fire the LPPCs to increase screen shake. Even though the "C" has GECM, go passive in order to turn off the LAMS if you really need to hide
- Warlord Kentax


Variant D

Excellent generalist. Good at both brawling and skirmishing.

Player Comments:
Prepare an extra mouse button for chain-firing the LLs when in close-combat or on hot maps. Remember to lead the TBolt shots in close-combat.
- Warlord Kentax


Variant E

Operates best as a skirmisher. Burst damage-focused with damage spreading capabilities. Good at targeting individual components like arms.

Player Comments:
- Warlord Kentax


Variant F

Terrifying brawler, highly effective at overheating or distracting enemies and eliminating BA.

Player Comments:
Works best between 60-150m. Watch out for enemies coming within the MRM30's minimum range. Buy 1 ton of MRM ammo and 2 tons of RAC ammo.
- Warlord Kentax


Variant G

Dedicated sniper. Poor performance at close-range. Good choice for wide-open maps.

Player Comments:
Chain-fire the ERPPCs to prevent overheating. Prepare a second button for chain-firing the AC2s for fighting BA.
- Warlord Kentax


Canon

The Warhammer BattleMech was introduced by StarCorps Industries in 2515 to be "a mobile 'Mech with enough firepower to destroy or severely damage any 'Mech of the same weight class or lower." In the mission it was designed for, the Warhammer proved to be a very capable 'Mech, and for centuries practically defined the entire class of heavy 'Mechs. Boasting incredible firepower and respectable armoring, the Warhammer served prominently in the Star League Defense Force and was one of the premier 'Mechs in the Gunslinger Program. Indeed, many of the greatest MechWarriors in history were Warhammer pilots. Being more lightly armored then other mechs of its class, the Warhammer preferred to stay at range where its weaponry was most effective. In addition to PPCs, SRMs, and Lasers, it had two machine guns for defense against infantry. Date Introduced 2515 during the Era known as "Age of War" (2005 - 2570) - Unit Role: Brawler

Amongst BT fans, the Warhammer, along with other Mechs designed for the Macross Anime series, is referred as the Unseen. Another Unseen Mech (which was originally planned to appear in MWLL) is the Marauder.
