New Customizations Available: Tea is Served


New Customizations Available: Tea is Served

In addition to parking the Technician in the Mech Shop, the latest HAWKEN update also added a mech-ton of new ways to customize and personalize all your mechs, including new taunts and holo-taunts, new body shop options, and a full six-pack of new camos.

New Taunts and Holo-Taunts

We've added three new taunts, one for each mech class, and these taunts send a very personal message to vanquished foes. Unlock these new taunts in your garage with Meteor Credits (MC) or HAWKEN Credits (HC) and invite your enemies to tea time.
  • The Tea Spot (Type-A)
  • It's in the Bag (Type-B)
  • Double Bag Brag (Type-C)

We've also added three new holo-taunts. You can freely equip any of these new holo-taunts on any mech you own, but you'll need holo-pucks to deploy them during matches, which can be purchased with HC or MC.
  • Run Piggy Run
  • Robo Nono
  • Green With Envy

New Chassis

For pilots who like to mix and match mech parts for a distinctive look, check out the Technician's Zos chassis, which is now available for use on light mechs. Or, add the JT-IGNITE thruster to hover above your enemies atop bright, cyan jets or the RD-W3LD repair drone, which will spot-weld your mech back together in the middle of battle.


New Camouflages

If a custom paint job is more your style, this patch will keep your mechanic's paintbrush busy. We've added not three, but six brand new camos to help your mechs blend into a variety of locales, including the jungle, the seashore, the desert, the beach, the junkyard…and the chicken coop.



If you're looking to make a statement as you gun down enemy mechs, head to your garage today and check out these new options added by the Technician Update.

"Mechxercises", apparently.
FINALLY we can teabag!!!

Just did it to a dev, lol.
Loving (some of :P ) the new camos, as much as I liked the older ones, some of these look less tacky and more subtle :D Great Work!
the scrapyard turquoise is the best thing to happen to my garage
Awesome !
Special mention for the JT-IGNITE thruster C-class heavy bagging taunt.
Are we going to get account wide camos and other customizations anytime soon? I'd like to be able to do a one off purchase of my favourites and have them available for all mechs. Please?
Pfffffff... Teabags... Real pros do it  old school, by boost jumping. Although C class teabagging looks fragin awesome.
love the new thrusters, somehow reminds me of old ps1/2 graphics^^

They're working on it, hopefully it comes soon.

As per Scapes' earlier forum post, it looks like some camos will be made account-wide but many others will not be.

More accurately, some Limited Edition (such as Hearts of Fire) camos are account-wide. The non-event camos introduced each patch are per mech.

Adoradibidible. I want to tip it.
Before I read the graphic novel, I was certain that they would 'tip' themselves.
