B1gB4ddy nice to see you still around. Join our Discord channel https://discord.gg/Qstkc

Right now the mortar is really "semi guided". There are some UI elements we need to add to the HUD to show you a better idea of what's going on. I assure you they do come down! Mortars are really a long range weapon and should be treated as such. The arc is high to get them over hills and buildings. Also HG has self guided shells which cross correct their path using a laser tag on the enemy. That part of the mortar logic and sensor/targeting computer is coming as part of the electronics update.

looking good! Haven't played since before the early access on steam. Good to know you guys are still kicking.

Quick question about the newly added mortars. How do they work exactly? I read that you need a lock on someone, but they never seem to come back down after I fire them up in the air, despite having a lock.

Now all we need is a light field gun for the spitting cobra and watch out for incoming junglemower varient, could just use the heavy guided mortar option though. I get the feeling without lighter gear support you'd be quickly overwhelmed though.

Great update.

@theluc I worked for Dream Pod 9 as the marketing manager, worked on some of the lore, and was responsible largely for Heavy Gear Arena. I'm also a huge fan of HG since the late 90s. Safe to say I know the lore.

We have a litmus test internally for new Gears. The devs shows me a design without telling me what it is and if I can recognize it, then it's a pass. If I guess wrong, it's a fail. I also have a huge amount of input on the designs to make them feel right. That being said, we do plan on more vintage looking armor plates in the future.

The Grizzly is the Gear that got me into HG years ago.

What a reveal guys! I'm starting to get really excited about all this. I really like the plans for the tracked feet too. The weight system sounds pretty cool!
