About This Quiz

If you weren't sure, MechWarrior Online is a free-to-play online video game that was launched back in 2013. The video game takes place in a universe called the BattleTech, where players must assume the role of a MechWarrior who in turn has to pilot fighter vehicles called BattleMechs. These BattleMechs are stocked with weapons and other equipment that can be used in battles against other players in the Mech Warrior Online world. They've pretty much got everything short of a minibar on board.

So now that we've got that out of the way, we want to test your knowledge of the game's characters today. We want to know how well you know the Mechs that make up the BattleTech world. Did you know that Firestarter FS9-E is a Hero mech who has an impressive array of weapons and lots of energy? Can you identify Zeus by his army green exterior? Do you know that Gargoyle, an assault OmniMech, doesn't actually look like a stone creature? 

Do you play the game enough to name all the Mechs we're about to show you? Or will you fail miserably and have to go back to level one? Let's see how much you know about the characters in the BattleTech universe!
