The "Guess the next mech pack" mech is the Incubus

https://mwomercs.com/incubus

Looks like some recycled components/bits from other mechs art wise...of course that's easier to say than it is to create such art and is related to the artists style as well.

Captures enough of the good from the original and improves upon it.

Neat look, but MGs that close to the cockpit are not something I'd want to deal with play wise...think it would become annoying/blinding after a bit for my tired eyes.

Could be wrong.

Because the Clans needed another mech more than a new IS "Redesigned Geo!" pack.

Seriously, if they started re-releasing older mechs as mechpacks and made their HP Geo more competitive, I'd probs rebuy a few. Especially the Black Knight.

on the plus side, it's a design we might see in BT-PC eventually?

It's Clan-tech, so it's at best a long ways off.

It's not bad looking.  I'm worried that mechs are going end up looking same eventually.

Machine guns are by far op now, if the Mech gets in your Mech's grill/face.

Too late, IMHO ;) And by the way, what's "Geo" in this context?

Generally, "geo" refers to hit box geometry in MWO.

I am doubting between then various offers as I haven't played in awhile.

Is the Incubus a good buy or should I go for another Clan light?

That, as well as HP locations. Early IS mechs suffer from bellycannons a lot.

If that thing ends up having machine guns, it will be a murder machine.
