"The Hackman is swift and stealthy. A variant of the Owens, it features null signature technology for avoiding enemy radar. Its speed is invaluable behind enemy lines." -MechAssault 2 manual


Sneaky, Stealthy, and Fast. Are three words that describe the speed and firepower worked into the frame of the Hackman Light 'Mech. The Hackman comes armed with a double set of Crossbow Missiles, and a single Gauss Rifle. This is another one of the scout 'Mechs that does not bear a third weapons platform.


The Hackman light 'Mech comes armed with a long range Gauss rifle and fires 2 Crossbow Missiles at a time. However, the Hackman lacks a third weapon, and with it, potential mid-range capabilities. The Gauss Rifle equipped to the Mech has the potential to knock another Mech completely off of it's feet, and the Hackman is fast enough to also avoid most incoming types of fire. The Crossbow Missiles should only be used if you are engaging enemies at point-blank distances and shouldn't be relied on to cause large amounts of damage.


In both of the MechAssault games, the Hackman lacks Jump-Jets, and with it any vertical capability, but has Null-Signature, rendering it invisible. However, this is the only scout 'Mech that has Null-Signature that doesn't have Jump-Jets. This may be an advantage however, because even if you're using Null-Signature, the Jump-Jets give you away. Because of it's speed it can easily out run any other Mech (besides the Owens, its variant model) and also is probably the best Flag Runner available.
