Hypermobile Tychus Build

Combat Tactician
Casting Run and Gun reduces the cooldown of Minigun by 8 seconds.
Combat Tactician is extremely underrated in terms of providing more mobility to a 4.5 range Hero. By picking this talent, you become a budget Orphea when she lands her Q.
The Bigger They Are..
Lower the cooldown of Minigun by 2 seconds and increase the damage bonus to 4% while enemy Heroes are above 35% Health, but Minigun no longer has any effect on targets below 35%.
Situational talent tier:
In the Rhythm if I want to improve the uptime on Minigun.
The Bigger they Are... if I want to improve sustained burst potential.
Never pick Master Assassin. It may look enticing, but it simply takes too long to complete (imo).
Relentless Soldier
Being Stunned or Rooted grants you Resistant, reducing damage taken by 25% for 3 seconds.
With this build, you are going to be more prone to being cced. To mitigate that, you are going to need some additional protection in the form of Relentless Soldier.
Commandeer Odin
Call down an Odin to pilot. The Odin deals increased Damage, has 60% increased Basic Attack range, and uses different Abilities. The Odin takes 25% less damage and lasts 23 seconds.
Both Heroics are good in different situations:
Comandeer Odin if you want AoE damage. Good for the teamfight.
Drakken Laser Drill if you want exceptional dueling capabilities.
Neosteel Coating
Activate to gain 75 Spell Armor for 3 seconds, reducing ability damage taken by 75%.
Situational talent tier:
That's the Stuff! is great for self-sustain and pairs exceptionally well with The Bigger They Are... . One negative thing I see Tychus players do is picking In the Rhythm and That's the Stuff!. The two talents have an anti-synergy with each other because it will take longer for you to get healed by That's the Stuff! since In the Rhythm provides extra duration on Minigun.
Neosteel Coating is good if you find yourself against a team with heavy Spell damage.
Spray 'n' Pray has great synergy with Armor Piercing Rounds or Lead Rain at Level 16.
Titan Grenade
Frag Grenade deals bonus damage to Heroes equal to 5% of their maximum Health.
Bob and Weave
Increases Tychus's Basic Attack range by 1.5. Run and Gun and Odin's Thrusters gain 2 additional charges and reduces Run and Gun's Mana cost from 50 to 25.
This is where the fun begins. Bob and Weave gives Tychus so much uncontested mobility. It also has great synergy with Combat Tactician at Level 1 because you will be able to refresh the charges on Run and Gun much quicker.
