So it turns out you can infact customize your weapon loadout in AC. Yesterday, after following the steps in the video above, I was able to take my Aurora Trainer M3A laser cannons and put them on my Hornet instead of those weak Bulldog lasers. Turned my Hornet into a beast! It gets better. Little known to peeps, is that you can also equip the nose cannons on the hornet even though the slot isn't highlighted. So i took those Bulldog lasers put em there. So i have 3 firing groups, 2 are gimbled and 1 fixed giving me added firepower. Do it if you can, It'll give you an edge in MP.
