After nearly a decade of fruitlessly throwing endless streams of Merc bodies at hordes of evil robots, it's about time to shake things up a bit! What could possibly be more effective than that, you ask? It's simple: become a horde of evil robots! The folks at Potato.TF aren’t entirely certain whether this is legal, safe, or even humane, but they're going to find out one way or the other. After all, science isn't about WHY, it's about WHY NOT!

Operation Rewired Rampage is a charity event created and hosted by Potato.TF. Players are now robots and must fight their way to RED’s base. Blast your way through more than a dozen community-created maps and missions this summer and experience MvM like never before! Servers are available in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Click here to get started!

In addition to destroying robots (as robots), there is a charity fundraiser supporting Direct Relief! Donate as little as $5 to receive an in-game medal! Have the link to your Steam profile ready and click here for more information.

Destroy those robots while you can! The event will end on August 26th, 2022.
