Pacific Rim Uprising Jaeger Guide: The 7 New Mechs Detailed

2. Bracer Phoenix

The oldest design of the five main Jaegers in Pacific Rim Uprising (they're all Mark VI units and the Bracer Phoenix is a Mark V), the Bracer Phoenix is the real "brute force" of the fleet and can hold its own with its special ability: This three-pilot rig can allow one pilot to drop down to the Bracer Phoenix's chest area to operate the devastating pair of Vortex Cannons.

"A Mark V brute that can still run with the VI’s, Bracer Phoenix shoots from the chest, with a centrifugal vortex cannon that is as spectacular as it is deadly."

3. Guardian Bravo

The Guardian Bravo is another brute force jaeger who has a really cool weapon "Graphine Arc Whip" allowing it to specialize in ranged combat.

"Designed for combat at range, Guardian Bravo wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move."

4. Titan Redeemer

The Titan Redeemer is easily recognizable thanks to the "ball of death" attached to the end of its arm.

"Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet."

5. Saber Athena

Saber Athena, orange in color, is the most advanced jaeger in the fleet, swift but experimental. It has plasma swords and requires a mastery in martial arts to pilot.

"The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, Saber Athena is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat."

6. Scrapper

As a little twist, there's also a little Jaeger called Scrapper. In the future there's a lot of scavengers stealing materials to build their own jaegers out of the wrecked husks of old Jaegers and ruins. This plays into the theme that anyone, no matter your background or who you are, can be  hero.

"It's the human inside the jaeger that's super. It's you times a thousand." - Steven S. DeKnight

7. Obsidian Fury

Obsidian Fury is the very first drone prototype created by Newton Geiszler, under the influence of the Precursors. Obsidian Fury represents the blueprint of the Jaeger-Kaiju hybrid Drones and was used by Newton as the standard model to mass produce other drones with the approval of Liwen Shao, who pioneered the technology as an alternative to pilot-controlled Jaegers constructed by the Pan Pacific Defense Corps.

Of course, given that half its brain is controlled by a Kaiju, it goes AWOL and attacks a human city. The Gypsy Avenger must then track it to its origins and best it in battle in order to acquire its plasma infused chainsaws as weapon upgrades.
