So!  It's finally here, and despite everything this little light is surprisingly versatile.  Not to mention tanky as all hell for a light mech!  So these are the builds I came up with for my majestic Urbanmechs:

UM-R63
x1 AC 5 (3 tons ammo)
x2 Medium Lasers
x4 Single Heat Sinks
- XL 180
- Endo Steel / Ferro Fibrous Armor

I'm not gonna lie, this build runs really hot really quickly because of the single heat sinks.  The AC 5 doesn't generate much heat firing continuously, it's the medium lasers you have to be careful with using repeatedly.  There are also no jump jets in this build so I could squeeze in as much ammo for the AC5 as I could.  Its damage potential is pretty awesome though, even if you run out of AC 5 ammo.

UM-R60
x4 Machine Guns (2 tons ammo) [machine gun quirks on this one are pretty damn amazing]
x1 ER PPC
x1 Small Laser
x4 Jump Jets
x3 Dbl Heat Sinks
- XL 180
- Endo Steel

I basically tried to recreate my ER PPC Mist Lynx build, but with machine guns.  The ER PPC is great for ranged harass, or at least providing that extra "oomph" if things get into a brawl and their armor is not quite stripped enough yet.  The machine guns + small laser fired together help nuke components off enemies once their armor is stripped. 

UM-R60L
x2 Large Lasers
x2 Small Pulse Lasers
x4 Jump Jets
x4 Dbl Heat Sinks
- XL 170
- Endo Steel

This variant / loadout is by far my most favorite of the three.  Not only can you use your right arm as a shield, but the large and small pulse lasers work really well together in close range combat.  This variant is a tad slower than the others, but not by much.  It is however the most heat efficient though of the bunch.

So this is what I use.  Keep in mind all of these also run either with max armor, or just a few points shaved off the cockpit to even out the tonnage.  What builds have you had the most success with?
