Robots! I will break you!
The Heavy on preparing food

The Robo-Sandvich is a promotional secondary weapon for the Heavy. It appears as a robotized 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 the top. It is visually similar to the style of other Mann vs. Machine models.

This weapon functions identically to the Sandvich.

The Robo-Sandvich is awarded in Genuine quality to players who opened a What's in the Sandvich Box?, which was given to those who purchased the 1:1 Sandvich toy made by ThreeA Toys either at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, or during the limited Valve Store re-releases on December 7th, 2012, October 17th, 2013, and April 19th 2014.
