Open Source Adventures: Episode 49: BATTLETECH Full Damage Per Ton Weapon Ranking

It's time to complete the project, and get the full weapon ranking. All we need to do is add ammo weight. I'm assuming that you'll get enough ammo to last you 10 rounds of shooting, and not doing any rounding (even though you can't really get like 0.6 ton of ammo).

In this analysis I'm also assuming you want to get enough heat sinks to get rid of all the excess heat, under normal conditions. This is generally not the right way to build, as you won't be shooting all the time, so 100% heat siking is just a waste.

As a bonus I also reran this script assuming you have access to double heat sinks instead of single heat sinks. This could alternatively be taken to be a 50% heat sinking build, which would be a bit too low.

I'm sort of wondering about turning this into interactive visualization, where you can change your assumptions to get different rankings based on your choices, like how much ammo you want, enemy cover (20% does not actualyl mean 20% due to how game rounding works), any heat exchangers, how much you value crit bonus or stability damage etc. But for now I think I'll just stop here.

Conclusions

These are long lists, but here's what we can tell from these rankings:

  • support weapons (MGs and SLs) are really good, but they have very low range, so they only go on specific builds
  • SRMs, MLs, LBXs, and UACs are good
  • LRMs are medium in the ranking, but they have very high range and indirect fire, so in
  • Snub PPCs and LLs are medium
  • ACs, PPCs, Gauss Rifles are quite poor

I think that's pretty much in line with what I expected, as my builds are already SRMs, MLs, LRMs, with occasional UAC, LBX, or LL. I guess I expected Gauss Rifles to be better.

So in the end I'm not sure I learned much from this.
