MechWarrior 5 is the latest installment in the famous robot-fighting series. Like games before it, you get to control massive mechs and fight your way through hordes of other giant robots.

You can go to battle solo or with other mates, as well as change views from third-person to first-person for a more immersive experience. So far, though, the game has received mixed reviews. The combat is fun, but according to some, repetition begins to set in after a while.

The mission variety also isn’t where many feel it should be. Everything starts to blend in after a while. There is still a bright future for MechWarrior 5, though, thanks to its new mod support.

Now creative users can do all sorts of things to the gameplay and visuals. In fact, a new mod called MW5 Mercs Reloaded was just put out. Although it’s still in the beta phase, it has already shown a lot of promise and made a lot of welcomed changes according to the community’s response.

One new feature that certainly stands out is the enhanced mechlab. It enables players to customize their mech suits in many more diverse ways. This has been a lacking feature since launch, unfortunately.

It was a strange choice from the developer because mech customization was of course going to be a highly requested feature at launch. Thankfully, those in the mod community listened to the fans and have provided plenty of new customization features.

These include engine upgrades, armor types, engine cooling, and even leg enhancement slots. You now have full control on how you want your mech to control and look, making MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries all the better.

That’s not all this mod does either. It also has refined the combat system. For example, rather than emphasizing smaller scale battles with tanks and other machinery, now combat is geared more towards mech-on-mech action.

It’s a great idea because that’s why many gamers are playing MechWarrior 5 to begin with. They want to experience these grandiose battles and see if they have what it takes to take down other elite mechs with heavy-duty firepower.

This game may have received mixed reviews at launch, but this latest mod and future mod support will surely elevate its status. Now, the game is filled to the brim in unique customization options and epic combat. If you haven’t yet played it, now’s a good time thanks to the promising changes on the horizon.
