The Hunchback is the quintessential street brawler. Its weapons are ideally suited to knife range fighting common in urban combat and few models carry weapons that reach farther than medium range. The Hunchback line of 'Mechs is well rounded, with models that specialize in missile, energy, and ballistic weapons.



Want a 'Mech that's AS HARD AS NAILS with a CANNON so big it blocks YOUR VIEW? WE'VE GOT YOUR MECH

Note: Founders 'Mechs have a unique skin.

HBK-GI

The HBK-GI "Grid Iron" is the Hero variant of the Hunchback. It has the characteristic "hunch" with quirks that emphasize the Gauss Rifle and Medium Pulse Lasers. It comes from the factory with Double Heat Sinks, Endo-Steel, and an XL engine. Unfortunately, since Gauss Rifles explode like ammo, the XL engine tends to be more of a downside. Like all Hero 'Mechs, the HBK-GI provides a 30% Cbill.png  C-Bill bonus.
