Description[edit]

The LB 2-X AC, originally introduced by Clan Goliath Scorpion, was brought with the Clans during their invasion. It took the Inner Sphere several years, but they were eventually able to bring to technology from the LB 10-X AC to the lightest class of autocannon, as well. Like other LB-X autocannon, the LB 2-X is able to fire in two modes: slug and cluster. The slug shot is a standard autocannon shot that deals 2 points of damage to one location. The cluster round is a shotgun-like ammunition that usually spreads out its shot to find weakened points in an enemy's armor, however, the two shots that an LB 2-X fires are hardly destructive. The LB 2-X AC has the distinction of being the longest-range weapon on the ground, though its limited damage ensures that it sees little use.[2]
