Shadow Hawk Specs

Shadow Hawk Hardpoints


The SHD-2D features a distributed hardpoint selection of one ballistic, three energy, and three missile hardpoints, distributed across every area of the 'Mech.


  • Versatile combination of all three weapon types.
  • Weapons in both arms.
  • Very heat efficient when upgraded to double heat sinks.
  • A TAG can be optionally be placed in either arm to improve missile targeting and collect TAG bonus C-Bills/XP.


  • Ferro-Fibrous armor and Endo-Steel structure is a must to reduce weight enough for an armor rating (320-340) of a battle survivable level.
  • When you upgrade armor and structure you have to upgrade heat sinks because there's less room.
