NEXT Buccaneer

Buccaneer is a tank leg NEXT with laser weapon arms and a lightweight core. Visually quite pleasing, but NEXT-to-NEXT performance leaves much to be desired.


Buccaneer is one fine example on why it's a bad idea to combine a lightweight core with an arm weapon and a tank leg. This setup makes Buccaneer really slow with paper-thin defenses. Any NEXT weaponry can and will kill Buccaneer in short order. Do take heed however; its laser cannon arms will ruin your day if you don't keep moving, and his pulse cannon is good enough to keep the pressure on you. Move quickly, outturn him and blast him to pieces.
