i agree whith you in the wight facter cuz the trunk like legs of the mech whoud limte mobility and be a problem moving just them unless you had a huge hidrolic system which is not visibal on the mech but the bipedal would alowe it to travers any tirain but it would requier a huge computer system

While it's a good idea, I think it would be usless in 95% of terrain. To have something that is bipedal and armoured (weight) would prove to be too many problems than it's worth.
If the ground is unlevel, it would lose it's center of gravity and fall, causing great damage to the system. (the fact that it would be top-heavy doesn't help either.
Still, It's a nice idea.

I honestly think in real life Mechs would be useless sitting ducks, a tank would be much better

I don't think that the battlewalkers would be able to "leap" as t hat would reqire a large amount of energy and the legs won't be able to support a drop of that much tonnage. But what really helps is the battlewalkers ability to "run". Gets you places ALOT faster.
or the mechs frome chromehounds their are svevral typs like tracked, bipedal, inverse bipeadal for taking th kick of larger weponds ,hover and mulitleages for the heviest guns and the most kick back

Something I'm curious about, is why would Mechs in the future
have to be bipedal, I mean they could be quadrapedal, or even
sextapedal (6 legs).
An example from some games of multiped Mechs.
A 6 legged Mech from Earth 2150.
A quadrapedal Mech from Earth 2160. One of the legs is hidden behind the body.
