Disable Heat Death
To disable heat death (not exploding when you overheat)
do the following. Take a mech that overheats by shuting
down or explodes when perfoming an alpha strike.
As soon as you do the alpha strike, quickly use your
coolant by pressing the F key. You should recieve a
message that says, "Heat death disabled."
To salvage enemy mechs easier all you have to do is to
shoot off one of the enemy mech's legs. An easy way to
do this a group a lot of medium pulse lasers together
and fire them at one leg. NOTE: This trick doesn't always
work, but it does increase your chances for salvage.
To view any of the videos from Mech Warrior 3, open
"My Computer". Then right-click on the Mech Warrior 3 CD,
then click on open. Then go into the video folder.
Just double click on the video you wish to view.
Blow the legs off a mech, rather then the torso.
Or, better yet, use a head shot.
Easy head shots:
Salvage a "Clan Targeting Computer" and equip it
on your mech. Then target a mech's head and fire
a large pulse for a one hit head shot kill.
Blow off one leg of a mech. Since a mechs legs are
much weaker then the torso, it makes killing enemy
mechs much easier.
Don't think that an assault mech automically means you have
the cat by the tail. Even the heaviest mech can have its
legs or chest torn out by a couple of well-placed AC/20
shots. Keep moving and use cover.
Heat is more of an enemy than in any previous MechWarrior
game. When you modify your loadouts, don't add more energy
weapons than you can cool effectively. Those machine guns
don't look like much, but they can keep tearing at an enemy
while you cool down from that laser volley you just fired.
When battling enemy heavy mechs, send in whatever lance
mates you have first while you concentrate heavy fire on
the enemy mechs' legs. Use the zoom feature for those
accurate long-range attacks.
