"Uhh Captain, Captain, stop window-shopping. The Atlas will do fine." - Major Natalia


It's said that the sight of an Atlas can make even the most experienced MechWarriors break out in tears (or shivers). And with good reason; the Atlas is one of the most terrifying sights in the entire game. Weighing in at 100 tons, this powerful assault class BattleMech dominates any battlefield it appears on. The Atlas can stand toe-to-toe with 'Mechs of any class; one Atlas is worth a dozen lesser 'Mechs and could win a battle against that many (unless you're dealing with a bunch of heavy 'Mechs). In the hands of a skilled 'Mech operator, the Atlas is an offensive force rarely matched, and nearly impossible to stop.


The Atlas is one of the most well armed 'Mechs in the game. Carrying four non-alternating Pulse Lasers, and quadruple Auto-Cannons, at close to medium ranges the Atlas is nearly unstoppable. It however lacks at the long range, only bearing dual Javelin missile launchers. The Atlas is built to inflict massive damage at closer ranges and must be that close in order to take down other Mechs. In MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf, the Atlas carries the Alpha Strike super-weapon; which is only activated when all three of the weapons on the Atlas are at maximum upgrade.


The Atlas is outfitted with the strongest armor in both games, and actually features heavier armor plating than the Ragnarok and Ymir 'Mechs. This extra plating comes at the cost of mobility; the Atlas can be outrun by any other 'Mech in the game, at traveling only 19 MPH. In MechAssault 1 the Atlas comes equiped with the AMS, Anti-Missile System. In MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf the Atlas does not have any defense of any kind other then its extremely heavy armor.
