Fair warning guys, this story hits right in the feels.
It all started back in May, when the Mechwarrior Online community learned one of their youngest pilots -a 5 year old named Sarah Parries- had passed away from inoperable brain cancer. Rallying together, the community urged Piiranha Games to consider making a Mech in her honor and donating all the proceeds for cancer research.
Now just a few short months later, Piranha has made good on their promise and unveiled “Sarah’s Jenner”. The Jenner, complete with medium lasers and streak SRMs happened to be Sarah’s favorite mech since she enjoyed the speed of the mech and the lock on of the SRMs.
The new JR7-D[S] mech comes with a 10% XP boost, a custom skin and cost $10. Just as the community requested, Piranha will be delivering all the proceeds of the sale to the Canadian Cancer Society. Currently the proceeds collected total more than $40,000.
Players will have until August 20th to purchase the mech after which it will be discontinued. The mech comes with its own personal mech bay and cannot be sold or gifted.
