MechWarrior Online: Heroic Hero Mechs List

A list which makes it easier to find a hero mech that’s worth buying

 

Have you ever wanted to buy a hero mech…

…but realized that you have no idea which is worth the MC? #METOO! This list is a result of efforts to educate myself. Maybe it will help someone else, as well.

Any mech with a {!} next to it is a “Must Buy” mech, or, to put it another way, meta. Will this list have everything? No. You’re welcome to offer your opinions in the comment. However, if you’re here to achtually just save it. I don’t care, neither does anyone else, and you should touch grass.
