MW5:Mercs Hatchetman

Hatchetman

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries



I think that now there can be no doubts that the new 'Mech really is Hatchetman;)

I don't think that's the issue, the current gameplay doesn't allow for physical combat.

I wouldn't want to run around in a Hatchetman and not be able to do physical combat with the hatchet. MW5 does but not MWO currently anyways.

I think that's why they are showing two separate 'Mechs on each game twitter account and Hatchetman is on the MW5 one. MWO will definitely get the Crusader, MW5 which does have melee will definitely get the Hatchetman. MWO will of course miss out on the Hatchetman but MW5 might also likely get the Crusader too. If PGI stick to no Clans and third DLC is still pre-Invasion then both are fair game and with MWO on lesser development status doing most of the dev on it for the MW5 DLC at the same time make sense.

I used Twitter I just went to the links. I didn't put together that they were for each other's game. Then again that makes sense if they have two platforms they're trying to support. Secretly I wanted to see them add me combat to MWO online. I mean it's not impossible to code, they must have this sort of physics in the original game that MWO line uses.

Maybe I'm weird, but I wonder if this'll actually end up being the Axman. It's not like PGI hasn't made lanky heavies before.

Well we haven't seen the right torso yet as that'd probably tell us the difference between an AC/10 and an AC/20 mount, but the left arm laser looks more like a Medium rather than a Large. Mauler proves cusp of invasion is not impossible, but that was a pre-existing MWO design where Hatchetman being available for more of the in-game timeframe would make more sense than an Axman I feel.

The hatchet has the back edge of an Axeman, whereas the hatchet's back edge on the Hatchetman is more pointy.

I think this is actually going to be an Axeman.

21 is the left side of the head and it has the ball-thing the Hatchetman has and the Axman does not.

That head sensor confirms that this is indeed the Hatchetman:

I wonder if the AC-10 will be chest-mounted or more like "shoulder-mounted".

HBS version was a little too high for my tastes and Axman level makes to too prominent and Hunchback like, the new refreshed art of practically arm-pit level seems likely. Guess that left hip is next then hatchet, right torso and head.

Now we can see exactly where that Autocannon goes:

Indeed, and the shape of the hatchet is now revealed to be more like that of the Hatchetman.

This is exciting - I might spring on MW5 on sale after all!  First the punching, and now the axing!

It makes me wonder now if all 'mechs with hands will be able to mount a hatchet or sword... >:D

Forgot with the whole MW5 has melee that its all just normal limbs. Either they opt for original TRO3025 no hatchet and may just give it an exclusive "hatchet" fist or we'll see if actual proper hatchets for other 'Mechs.

I am not saying that the hatchet is bad, but it has a different shape than I expected.

One of the reasons why I like both the Hatchetman and Axeman - they look like a xenomorph that chooses to murder people with an axe!

That looks great!  I just installed MW5 hoping to take my first spin tonight.  I'm looking forward to seeing this getting in-game!

I think that those spikes on its head give the 'Mech some extra-terrestrial flair.  :)

I like the model the HBS game used better.
