The Heavy on preparing food

The Robo-Sandvich is a promotional secondary weapon for the Heavy. It is a robotic version of the Sandvich made with a printed circuit board, multiple types of sheet metal, several loose wires, a switch and a blinking team-colored light on top. It is visually similar to the style of other Mann vs. Machine models.

This weapon functions identically to the Sandvich.
