    I am going to a tournament this week end and 2 of the missions have a MEGALODRON!! in the center of the board. I am currently planning on playing OS. Any recommendation on how to kill it? I already know how I can limit its capability, yaa white noise.

    The missions are:
    Unmasking
    Kingdom of the Beast
    Wrath of the Colossus

    Why waste orders to help your opponent by killing it? Temporary disabling with WN so it is still a problem on their turn is a solid choice.

    easiest way would be crits, and crits are easiest obtained by CC. so any good cc units in OS?

    I just had a look. no really good cc units in OS. best bet would be andromeda with cc 20 and guard LVL 3

    so good luck or maybe go with DukeofEarl's suggestion.

    Yeah. If you really want to kill it, Dakini HMG in fully linked team with upgrade. 5 dice with highest damage available and negative modifiers for the enemy.

    Where this is true I am debating how to steel the kill and though tactically not dealing fighting it is good it want to be prepared just in case.

    I keep forgetting that Andromeda is in OS. I am giving OS another try (also gives me an excuse to paint more of them) started as SP and I really like them and vanilla.

    Fair enough. Getting through that TI means that HMGs are probably your best option. Though a repeater and AHD is an interesting thought. With TI an AHD becomes a safe way to potentially deliver damage (or get it IMM for your own fun) and with DAM similar to the HMG.

    I dont know the megalodron profile, but wouldnt the marut be a good choice with Fat L1 and AP ammunitions ?

    About Andromeda, she have D-Charges. There are two ways she could use it, either in CC with -3 to hit, or in deployable mode if the opponent is in IMM state. AP+EXP dam 14 should hurt it.

    EDIT: just understood Duke's message ... so that thing has total immunity ? Then no choice other than Dakini HMG ... Nice to forbid all anti-tank options ...

    First wow my English was bad, sorry about that, I was in a rush to go tree shopping with my nephew. Next what AHD programs can actually cause damage?

    The highlights of the Megalodron is it is Total Immune, Immune to Possession, structure 5, armor high, bts high, 360 visor, msv 1 with either 2 multi hmg and hrl or 2 Hyper Rapid Magnetic Cannon, I think both versions have exp ccw and heavy flamethrowers.

    I think the idea is you white noise in front of a dakini and shoot it, it will still hit you on 9 I think. I need to fined the stats again but I think it is bs 15, -6 for white noise, -3 for cover, +3 for range bands.

    Oops. Missed the line about Hacking and Comms attacks not being effected by TI. NM that.

    Repeater and an AHD to IMM the Megalodron is valid though.

    Thank you all. I basically just white noise the megalodron all the time. My opponent had more trouble with it then I did. Go into game 3 I was in second but dropped to 5 after a grudge match with my brother.

    I'm a bit curious : why not take an Ajurna ? Two E/M template and an Akrylat Kanone are very likely to IMM/2 the Megalodron

    Without the risk of a face to face, a fireteamed samek will do a short work of the megalodron

    Total Immunity is reducing everything except the AK to normal ammo hits against ARM 9.

    Yeah, Total Immunity is such a bad rule ... It prevents all the subtle, but the standard bruteforce (read: HMG in a team) still works as usual ...

    Linked Dakini HMG with supportware.

    Or Achilles. Melee is your best bet, even if its going to take quite a few orders.

    Or myrmidon link in melee. Please use smoke to approach.

    Those are the best options. Total Immunity kills most ways to disable it before, hacking.... eh. Its going to be against WIP 15 and BTS 9 and the best you can do is isolated / imm-1.
