MechWarrior 4 Masakari by Mecha-Zone MechWarrior 4 Masakari by Mecha-Zone
Final concept art for the Masakari, also known as the Warhawk, for Microsoft's MechWarrior 4 game. This one was in the Mercenaries version.

More info about the mech at the battletech wiki page [link]

I think a lot of people have been waiting for me to post this one... hope you like it :)

An interesting design you've got here. The thing looks menacing and aggressive, which is how a 'Mech should look.

I have a general dislike for assault mechs, but I can say I am liking this Warhawk.

Despite the fact that I have never had the pleasure of using this 'Mech in a game, it is still one of my favourites - right next to the Black Hawk, Sunder, and a modified Annihilator on MW3 equipped with 6 ER-PPcs and Jump Jets.

Fantastic design, you know while it is in MW4 Mercenaries, you can't select it to play as. Is there some kind of unlock for the other mechs?

maybe it was one of the mech pack mechs? Not to be confused with Mek-tek. We made 2 mini expansion mech packs for mercenaries that added 4 mechs each and some new multiplayer maps.

...looks like they are pretty expensive if you buy one unopened. Maybe I should dig out my extra copies and sell them!

Heck yeah, man. Have you seen the price of the mechwarrior 4 games? Very recently they suddenly sky rocketed... I was looking at the prices, considering buying one of the expansions... one day the highest price was 9 dollars the VERY NEXT DAY the average price shot up to 97 dollars. I couldn't believe it!

Masakari is one of my favorite designs. I love those dual ERPPCs in each arm, you might have noticed that my Typhoon has similar in its right torso :)

Looks mean, aggresive, and very much like the 'mech I've never been able to pilot until Mechwarrior 4 comes out for free.

It's one of the first 'mechs I'd hunt on Solaris. I've learned that there are simply certain 'mechs you have to take down first on Solaris.

Eh, I take the easy prey out first, let the big boys damage each other before I pick them off.
...
Accordingly, I usually rip Ricardo Vecci's Daishi apart as soon as the fight begins. :P

I usually hide and try to take out isolated targets first in tournament. Especially after 4 heavies opened fire on me after I chased a raven into the open...

Oh, in Multiplayer I'm sure that's a great strategy, as it is on Solaris, but when you've got the big guns it's easy to push everything around, and it's actually really fun when you bring an Assault Mech to the championship match and someone else does bring a Raven... one solid hit will sned it crashing to the floor.

Thats what I did, but I was running the netmech mod, and using a Kodiak, heat was CRAZY, but I could destroy entire sections of mechs in one shot. But then because of the different damage values, I had to still be careful around even medium mechs.

Well, if you've got the MekTek version, you can put a Railgun on a Marauder II, and that seems to work pretty well - you've got to watch your ammo, but you can do ridiculous amounts of damage pretty quickly.
