500 years after the Earth became a hostile, radioactive wasteland, one bastion of human hope still stands – Bethesda City. The Heavy Steel League was created as a way for people to earn their place in the city, or die trying.
INTENSE MECH BATTLES
Heavy Steel puts you in control of some of the best mechs in the world. Enter the arena and engage in epic 16 mech team battles. Shoot, run and dodge your way to victory and win by any means necessary to gain your freedom!
Use the environment to your advantage and collect power ups to help assault your enemies and defeat the other mech warriors. Find health, weapon and shield power ups that boost your stats and help you gain an advantage in the battle arena.
MEET THE MECH WARRIORS
Choose from 6 powerful mechs to fight with in the combat arena. Each one has their own unique stats – play with them all to discover which mech suits your strategy and style.
- Black steel – A balanced combat mech, perfect for beginners
- TS3000 – Advanced engines give the TS3000 superior speed at the sacrifice of weapon damage
- Crimson Shark – Very fast movement and rapid attack speed, but low damage and vulnerable to damage
- Biskopen – High health yet slow moving, Biskopen’s guns fire fast but deal less damage
- Braum – Absorb damage with very high health, at the cost of damage and movement speed
- Lazarus – Widely considered one of the most lethal mechs available, Lazarus has high health and damage speed. Slow to attack and move, try and avoid the guns!

It is possible to play the game on a LAN (local area network), this quite a technical process and we provide no support at all, it is there for an option for advanced users who want to play on a LAN. The software is not written by us, but by Photon who's networking API we use.
Download the Photon LAN server (windows only)
Firstly you need to download the photon server SDK from this URL : https://www.photonengine.com/en-us/sdks#onpremiseserver. You don't need to register right now. After you've extracted the files somewhere on your harddrive, navigate to its "control center", found under deploy/bin_WinXX. Start up PhotonControl.exe.
Configure the server
If you start up PhotonControl, you will receive a message that your server currently supports 20 CCUs. If you want more than that, sign up on the Photon website and download your 100 CCU license - for free. Move it into the folder where your PhotonControl executable is located and restart it to take effect.
Now, click on the PhotonControl icon in the tray bar and select 'Game Server IP Config'. Here you have to choose how your server should be reached. You can choose between your private IP within your LAN, or a public IP. Note that if you want to have players connected from a different network, you have to set a public IP that does not change i.e. a static IP. However for simple LAN setups, you would use a local IP - therefore click on 'Set Local IP'.
