Answers to the questions that I had. I am still a beginner, so other beginners could be interested.


This is for vanilla. As soon as you use mods the answers might be different.

  • Priority Missions have no time limit to take them
  • “gunnery always applies when you’re firing a weapon. Firing indirectly has a penalty, and Tactics’s bonus is there to provide a way to counteract that. So direct or not, gunnery matters.” — Mudpony
  • Ronin have no (dis-)advantages
  • Normal pilots can be customized (Backers?)
  • Gunnery is important for every shot, indirect ones too
  • Tactical has two normal items where you get better percentage with directed shots (-> headshots!!!)
  • Certain mechs seem to have bonuses: Marauder/Headshot, Warhammer/Energy weapons
  • The head slot is 45 armor +16 structure on all mechs (61) (unsure if true!)
  • heat exchangers are better than normal heat sinks as soon as your mech fires on average over 60 heat points worth of weapons every single turn. In practice it’s a bit more complicated than that (water, ice, different biomes etc) — Nwodaz
  • Eject: When you select the pilot you want to give orders to, you have the window on the left with the info about the mech, in that window there is a little red square with some kind of arrow. Hover on it and you’ll see the text “eject”. — lmgava
  • Borderless window: To play in full screen borderless window mode, set your in game video options to WINDOWED, and resolution to your desktop resolution. Exit the game.
    Now add -popupwindow to the battletech launch options, and if you’re getting it on the wrong monitor, add -adapter N where N = your monitor number – 1, so monitor 1 is 0, 2 is 1, etc.

(I tried to name the author of the answer when possible.)
