Looks like Lobotons are still a thing. I wanted to add some more to my force.
Lobotons are very much still a thing. I thought Lobos were tragically under used so in 2nd Edition they are much more versatile and useful.
Now there is only one type of Lobo equiped with both slicers and blasters. The control range has been increased and any Lobo or drone outside of control range moves and attacks on autopilot and does not just stand there.
Also any command issued to a Tripod controlling any Lobo or Drone also affects the Lobos and Drones.
