Cool. Why didn't you use the Tank? What versions of the Heat Cannon Weapon Arm ACs did you see most frequently, and why do you think that was? What sort of handset combos did they use? Why were your best fights in LBPs? Did you primarily fight other LBPs?
I guess you have a good point there.

Analysis: Very simple build. It relies either on armor break and/or stun caused by the shotgun or handgun, allowing for effective hits with the rifle/pulse gun. If enemy AC's armor buffs out the rifle and PG, regardless of armor break, The shotgun, paired with the rifle should be able to work as a reliable source for plink damage at a close range. Obviously, due to internal parts choice and low CE/TE defenses, the build is encouraged to be used either carefully with the use of cover in CQC situations, or by simply glide boosting behind a target, firing off as many rounds as possible before the generator starts to get drained. Handgun isn't completely necessary, so it can be replaced with a shield if needed.
I didn't really use a tank because I guess I'm not too comfortable in them. I also saw other builds as better options. Felt less risky and well-rounded.
I think I saw two HCWA LBPs in total, one that somebody else used as well as the one I did. I also saw a LRJ with these weapon arms. I think the more common handset combo out of these three were a TE shield with a pulse gun, but I prefer a shotgun with a pulse gun, simply because having two damage types available means that they cannot get stonewalled by a single type of shield.
I'd honestly understand a LRJ HCWA better than a LBP, since LRJs usually have enough RR to not get stunned by what LBPs and most mediums get stunned by. Shotguns, high-speeds...
Why were my best fights in LBPs? Heck, I like LBPs. XD Also, I guess it just so happened that most of my exciting fights occurred whenever I was using LBPs. There were exceptions, but in general, I had the most fun piloting a fast-paced LBP rather than the slower builds. Overall, I'd say I enjoyed using slower builds and LBPs equally as much, if we ignored the fact that I have a thing for light bipeds.
Did I primarily fight other light bipeds? No. If I recall correctly, I fought more heavy bipeds and mediums than anything else. I think I only saw a single light biped used against me. But if light reverse-joints are included, two in that case.
