You’re a Mean One, Mr. GWRENCH!

Since Munzee is all about playing your way, we like to give you options. Maybe Sir Prize Santa isn’t your thing, so you don’t have a TR33 TOPP3R. Maybe it’ll take a while for you to earn enough CO4L for a LOC04LMOTIVE. But what if you want a new Christmas Combat Mech running around? After all, they are worth DOUBLE POINTS the entire month, AND they also can potentially award CO4L. If this sounds like you, read on to find out more about our latest Mech! But first… a quick update we wanted to share!

Mech Update!

If you are the one to take down a Mech — in other words, you are the last one to cap it before it is archived — you will receive 1 Cog! This will start just shortly after the release of this blog, at around 12:15 MHQ. It is live now — 10 minutes earlier than we thought!

This update applies to ALL Mechz, not just Christmas Combat Mechz, and is a permanent change. We wanted to make it a little more rewarding to hunt them down, and also a little easier to build more of your own! Maybe even the Mech we’ll introduce you to now?


Like the other Munzee Mechz, the GWRENCH is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until it has been captured 5 times. In addition, as a Christmas Combat Mech, upon capture you have the chance to earn 1 – 3 CO4L Credits. If you’d like to add it to your collection, you can pick it up in the Freeze Tag Store HERE. You will receive a fully-built GWRENCH that will auto-deploy upon purchase, plus the Greenprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future.


  • Deploy: 500
  • Capture: 350
  • CapOn: 150
  • Combust (5th Cap): 425

You can find these KrampBot cousins creeping to the following landing pads every 4 hours or when captured:

GWRENCHes will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture GWRENCHes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same GWRENCH visits you. GWRENCHes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access GWRENCHes by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.

When a GWRENCH is captured, it will scatter up to 3 WR3NCHs.

These will scatter like feathers so there are no CapOn points but they are worth 100 points for capture — if you’re lucky! If not, you may lose 10 points instead. They expire after 240 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well.


Deploying a GWRENCH will earn you the corresponding Greenprint badge, which you can see below.

In addition, captures of the GWRENCH and the WR3NCH will also go toward the same line of capture badges that you can earn for LOC04LMOTIVE, TR33 TOPP3R, and N1NJ4 ST4R captures! It’s possible that this line may include other types we release in the future.

Ready to make a little mischief this Christmas?

Munzee on!
