A mech

Mechs are a type of bi-pedal walker.

Mechs have been in operation since before contact with Watchpoint: Antarctica was lost. Mech technology has improved in the time since then.[1]

Types[]

Junkers[]

Junker mechs

The Junkers carry out mech battles in the Scrapyard, which are one of the most popular forms of entertainment in Junkertown.[2][3]

MEKA[]

A MEKA-type mech

MEKA employs a number of mechs. Originally, these mechs were drones, but as MEKA's networks were hijacked by the omnic that they faced, they turned to human pilots. These pilots are allowed to customize their mechs and broadcast their combat operations to a live audience.[4] Pilots must earn their armored mech operator’s license to pilot a mech.[5]

Omnic[]

Omnics have utilized devices similar to mechs, if not necessarily mechs themselves. During the first Omnic Crisis, they hijacked the Titan walker, turning it into a weapon of war.[6] Likewise, the omnic that has ravaged South Korea (necessitating MEKA's formation in the first place)[4] is quadrapedal.[7]
