Operation Rewired Rampage
Operation Rewired Rampage was a reverse Mann vs. Machine tour organized and hosted by Potato's Custom MvM Servers. It was announced on February 23, 2022. A public beta was held for the tour on June 6 to 16, 2022, before officially launching on June 17, 2022. The campaign concluded on August 26, 2022.
On June 6, 2022, Operation Rewired Rampage went into public beta, with 19 missions spread across 14 maps, including official maps such as Coal Town, Rottenburg and Bigrock, as well as returning maps from previous community campaigns.
The tour launched on June 17, bringing with it another Expert mission on a new map. Patches adding new maps and missions were introduced throughout the campaign on June 24, July 9, and August 5, for a total of 25 missions, spanning 18 maps.
Unlike regular Mann vs. Machine missions, Operation Rewired Rampage has players join the horde of robots in attacking the bomb hatch. Players are tasked with protecting their AI-controlled robot teammates, and must assist them in escorting the bomb to a designated bomb hatch. Once at the drop point, the bomb must be deployed, detonating it and successfully completing the wave. The campaign also features a variety of custom weapons, along with some additional rebalances to stats on existing weapons and classes.
There was no in-game reward for completing missions in the tour, though players were still able to track their tour progress.

This event had four medals up for grabs, as rewards for donations to a charity drive benefiting Direct Relief, in support of Ukraine. Players could donate varying amounts through item or monetary donations to receive donor medals.
Donating at least 5 USD earned the player the Quarrelous Quartz medal, donating at least 15 USD earned the player the Perilous Peridot medal in addition to the previous medal, donating at least 25 USD earned the player the Sophisticated Sapphire medal in addition to the previous two medals, and donating at least 40 USD earned the player the Gem of Generosity medal in addition to the previous three medals.
The donor medals reuse the same models as previous gemstone medals from Operation Madness vs Machines, the Burnished Beryl, Royal Rhodonite, Grandiose Garnet, and Chaotic Crystal, respectively; however, the medals initially drop with a special custom painted team color based off the Ukrainian flag, that is not otherwise available in-game. The medals appear yellow on RED team, and blue on BLU team. The Reverse-Engineered Ruby drops with special team colors that are the negative inversions of Team Spirit, with reversed team placements, appearing cyan on RED team, and orange on BLU team.
Each of the medals has two styles, named "Normal" and "Gem Only". The "Gem Only" style displays only the gemstones, without the surrounding metal frames.
The medals were contributed to the Steam Workshop by NeoDement, Sntr, Erikku, sigsegv, Jakapoa, Pelipoika, interrobang, Mayor Rev, Z-Ben, kratos, Nuke, Hydrogen, Hyperion, Potato's MvM Server, DaanBox, Swordstone, and Geel.
