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