About MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online is Piranha Game’s free-to-play PvP game that’s a faithful adaptation of the popular BattleTech/MechWarrior strategy board games by FASA. A thousand years in the future, the Great Houses of humanity war on each other and on a common enemy, and their weapon of choice is 80-ton walking arsenals known as ‘mechs. Equip your ‘mech with the latest weapons and gear and take to the battlefield to turn your opponents into scrap metal!

After selecting your faction, your most important task as an aspiring ‘mech pilot is to choose the chassis of your ‘mech. From light scouts to heavy assault ‘mechs, each ‘mech has its own specialty and role on the battlefield. Some are better at close-quarters fighting, while other excel at long range or quick-hitting attacks, unable to sustain long-term encounters. Once you’ve chosen a ‘mech chassis, it’s time to kit it out. The weight of equipment and its power consumption are factors you must balance to ensure that your ‘mech can continue to move and fight in long battles.

There are several match types: Conquest (victory points), Assault (capture the base), Skirmish (deathmatch), and Invasion (attack/defend), which can be contested on one of over a dozen maps. In addition to one-off matches, MechWarrior Online has Faction Play, which pits the various factions against each other for control of the Inner Sphere.

As you complete matches, you’ll earn C-bills, which you can use to buy more equipment for your ‘mech, or entirely new ‘mechs. Some equipment can only be purchased with ‘mech credits, which are awarded in smaller amounts in certain matches or bought with real money. Finally, the ‘mechs themselves earn ‘mech XP, which can be used to unlock additional capabilities and skills for the ‘mechs. There are many ways to play MechWarrior Online, so the key is finding the strategies and equipment that work the best for you.
