General Overview[edit | edit source]

Standard Autocannons[edit | edit source]

The Autocannon is a self-reloading direct-fire ballistic weapon. They are grouped into various classes with the Autocannon 20 at the short-range end and the Autocannon 2 at the long-ranged end. Autocannons are more heat efficient than energy weapons but are heavier and ammunition dependent. The number in the autocannons description indicates the damage caused by a hit within effective range, and like all ballistic weapons autocannon's have longer non-effective ranges able to cause reduced damage out to three times their effective range.

Advanced Autocannons[edit | edit source]

The Ultra Autocannon 5 and the LB 10-X Autocannon are currently the only two advanced autocannons implemented in MWO although others may become available with the introduction of the Clans.



Plurality[edit | edit source]

"Autocannons" as plural is preferred to maintain the same rules of plurality for all weapon types.
