KEY
Mechs
Rk = Overall ranking of the Mech.
Wt. = Weight in tons.
Arm. = Armor.
Spd. = Speed in miles per hour, relative to a base 20 mph for an Atlas.
Rot. = Torso Rotation Speed in rotations per minute.
Size = Mech size, relative to other Mechs.  In order, from smallest to largest, the size ratings are Tiny, Small, Medium, Large and Huge.  Smaller Mechs are generally harder to hit.
MH = Maximum Heat.  The maximum amount of heat a Mech can withstand before overheating.
CT = Cooldown Time.  How long (in seconds) it takes for the Mech to go from being overheated down to no heat whatsoever.
A = Armor salvage, which varies in amount between Mechs.
E = Energy Salvage.
B = Ballistic Salvage.
M = Missile Salvage.
Fl = Flamer: Medium damage, low to medium rate of fire, medium to high heat, short range, medium to high accuracy, homing ability.
PL = Pulse Laser: Low to medium damage, high rate of fire, low to medium heat, medium to long range, low to medium accuracy.
La = Laser: Low to medium damage, medium rate of fire, low to medium heat, long range, medium accuracy.
PP = PPC: Medium to high damage, low rate of fire, high heat, long range, high accuracy, excellent homing ability, charged shot.
MG = Machine Gun: Low to high damage, high rate of fire, low heat, short range, low accuracy.
Au = Autocannon: Low to high damage, low to medium rate of fire, low to high heat, medium to long range, low to medium accuracy, knockdown ability.
GR = Gauss Rifle: Low to high damage, low to medium rate of fire, medium to high heat, long range, medium accuracy, homing ability, knockdown ability.
Cr = Crossbow: Low to medium damage, medium rate of fire, low to high heat, medium range, medium to high accuracy, homing ability, minimal splash damage.
Ja = Javelin: Low to high damage, low to medium rate of fire, medium to high heat, long range, medium to high accuracy, homing ability, minimal splash damage.
Wa = Warhammer: High damage, low to medium rate of fire, medium to high heat, long range, low to medium accuracy, splash damage, timed shot, sticks to targets.
LG = Lava Gun: High damage, low rate of fire, high heat, short to medium range, low accuracy, splash damage, knockdown ability.
JJ = Jump Jets: Used to fly (numbers indicate flying time/recharge time, in secs.) Speed and distance varies. Falling deals damage equal to the Mech's weight x 10.
NS = Null Signature: Makes the Mech invisible or partially visible when moving, overheated or damaged (numbers indicate duration/recharge time, in secs.)
TJ = Target Jamming: Jams radar and prevents weapon lock-on (numbers indicate duration/recharge time, in secs.)
AM = AMS: Places "chaff" on the ground (or on any surface, including other Mechs) to attract all missiles sent at your Mech (lasts for 4 seconds and recharges in 6 seconds.)
Sh = Shield: Prevents or reduces all damage from weapons (lasts for 1 second and recharges in 2 seconds.)
Ar = Armor rating from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Sp = Speed rating from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Ro = Torso Rotation Speed rating from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Sz = Size rating from 2 (huge) to 10 (tiny).
Mh = Weapon Maximium Heat rating from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Ct = Weapon Cooldown Time rating from 1 (slowest) to 10 (fastest).
E, B, M = Weapon ratings from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) as taken from the Weapons table .  Note: Special Weapon scores highlighted in purple and placed in the empty weapon slots.
D = Combined Defensive Ability Rating, from 0 (no defensive ability) to 10 (highest).  Defensive abilities are rated accordingly: TJ = 8, NS = 4, Sh = 4, JJ = 2, AM = 1.
Tot = Total combined rating for the Mech.  This total is weighted towards Armor (X2), due to its increased importance in determining a Mech's overall power.
Rat = Final Rating for the Mech.
Weapons
Rk = Overall ranking of the Weapon.
Dam = Damage in units of armor, assuming direct hits with full power shots.
ROF = Rate of fire, in estimated shots per minute.
Heat = Amount of heat, in bars (Note: This varies between different sized Mechs and is approximate.)
Rng = Maximum effective range of the weapon (which may be less than the maximum possible range.)
Acc = Accuracy of the Weapon.  Homing weapons have higher accuracy, spread weapons have lower accuracy.
H = Homing ability.  PPCs have been documented as having "insane" homing ability which can perform 360 degree turns and sometimes cause damage transfer through obstacles.
S = Splash damage.  Splash damage and radius varies between weapons.
Knockdown % = The percentage chance for a weapon to knock a Mech down at Level 2 or 3.
Da = Weapon Damage rating from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
RF = Weapon Rate of Fire rating from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Ht = Weapon Heat rating from 1 (hottest) to 10 (coolest).
Rn = Weapon Range rating from 1 (shortest) to 10 (longest).
Ac = Weapon Accuracy rating from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest).
Ho = Weapon Homing Ability rating from 0 (none) to 10 (highest).
Sp = Weapon Splash Damage rating from 0 (none) to 10 (highest).
Kn = Weapon Knockdown rating from 0 (none) to 10 (highest).
Tot = Total combined rating for the Weapon.  This total is weighted towards Damage (X2) due to its increased importance in determining a weapon's overall power.
Rat = Final Rating for the Weapon.  Weapon ratings are used in the Mech table.
L1, L2, L3 = Weapon levels; L = Low, M = Medium, H = High; Range Levels: (S)hort, (M)edium, (L)ong
