Overview[edit | edit source]

This custom variant of the Centurion is named Yen-Lo-Wang for the Chinese god of death. The CN9-YLW was made famous by the victories of Justin Xiang Allard in the Solaris VII arenas. It mounts a massive Autocannon 20 in its right arm and a pair of Medium Lasers. It is unclear if the Hatchet normally found on the design will eventually be available in MechWarrior Online.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Purchased with MC only.
  • Lopsided Armament - Loss of the Right Arm removes most of this 'Mech's firepower. The left arm has no weapons.
  • Limited traversal of energy weapons - Lasers are torso mounted, limiting vertical traversal. Fighting on cliffs is not recommended.

Hero Mech[edit | edit source]

This 'Mech is only available for purchase with MC, costing 3,750 MC. It comes with a unique skin and provides a 30% C-Bill bonus.

Arm Critical Slots[edit | edit source]

  • Left Arm: Shoulder, Upper Arm Actuator, 10 open slots.
  • Right Arm: Shoulder, Upper Arm Actuator, Lower Arm Actuator, Hand Actuator, 8 open slots.

The massive AC 20 cannot normally fit onto most 'Mechs arms. Special extra critical slots are provided to allow for it by removing the hand and lower arm actuator. As a result, the arms cannot turn sideways for extra reach. Although the arm has two Ballistic slots, the AC20 occupies the entirety of the critical slot space in the arm.

This online Mech Lab tool will let you build any load outs without having to purchase the 'Mech or spend C-Bills first.
