Armored Pixels

But alas, this popularity had its unfortunate side effects, as some Free Colonies idealists proved desperate or stupid enough to attempt to slap weapons and armor on a frame that was never intended for that purpose.

 

Up-armoring was a particularly thorny technical challenge, as it meant replacing the cooling vents that covered the entire front torso of a standard Pixel. What was left after was underpowered, prone to overheating, and still a death trap for the pilot.
