Mecha-Medes is a community created cosmetic item for the Medic. It is a robotized version of Archimedes, complete with team-colored eyes and body, which wobbles as the Medic moves. The blood splatters found on the normal RED version of Archimedes are replaced on this item with oil stains for both teams.
