MechWarrior Online has launched the Commando Hero Mech killing machine, Death's Knell in the MWO store. The Death's Knell mech is a fast and agile machine with 176 armor and four medium lasers. It also serves as a money-making venture, and by "money" we mean "virtual MechWarrior currency." The Death's Knell gets a 30% C-Bill bonus, so you can use it to boost your cash a bit faster than you can in a standard mech.

Starting today, players will also be greeted by the familiar and long-awaited Bitching Betty startup sequence, "Reactor Online. Sensors Online. Weapons Online. All Systems Nominal." The official female cockpit voiceover from the original MechWarrior games first returned to MechWarrior Online late last year, but the famous greeting is newly available, adding another authentic element from the series, which continues to evolve with fun and valuable content updates.

"Whether I choose to pilot a familiar or totally new Mech, such as Death's Knell, hearing Bitching Betty at the start really brings back fond memories while I get pumped for the action on the battlefield," said Bryan Ekman, creative director, Piranha Games. "We are excited to see how players utilize this speedy and deadly Mech, which excels at taking the fight to the enemy, and escaping before they can retaliate."
