Since we now have over 120 codes, I feel comfortable saying this... soon...

I don't actually know that.

Mecha already are in the game. Dark Matter Bulworks (bulwerks?) for one, though if you didn't do the bunker instance you wouldn't have seen them.
They aren't player-pilotable yet, but hey... expansions. And you never know, you may have one for a mission.

They are probably the Volge, an AI race created by the Votan.

Having a mecha vehicle would be awesome. Imagine this: At the cost of speed, you can deploy a slow-moving combat mecha instead. And, I guess for balance purposes, make the mecha have a slow cooldown time.

I think they would make better siege weapons in a battleground

I think some forms of mechs and/or powered armor ala Fallout are pretty much a given at this point. Can't wait :)

They might be OP in PvP, but developers could add weakspots on mechs to enable easier killing.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DONT DO IT!!! It killed planestide 1, but anyways thankfully it doesnt fit the mad max style future of the game, some of the old AI junk bot ones are one thing but no player driveable ones, if you want that go play mech warrior.

I agree with war, it sorta fits in the same category as melee weapons. If you do it for the 'cool factor' its generally a bad idea.

I'd be content with robotic minions too, put them in vehicle slots so you can deploy them for combat.

I'm a minion kinda guy, I'd kill to have robotic companions to help fight with me. If not, piloted mechs are still neat.

Hmm... this just gave me an idea for a way-too-powerful perk for the decoy power...

Even worse... I really hope to hell there are not going to be freaking pets of any kind in this game.

A similar idea, taken from Blacklight: Retribution: Use a flamethrower to 'cook' the pilot in the mech and after they die, you can take control of it.
