Mechs / Mech Combat


Source Tech Revolution pg. 112
Mechs are designed to function seamlessly on the same battle maps of 5-foot-by-5-foot squares commonly used for Starfinder tactical combat. However, for mech encounters over larger areas or against larger foes, it works well to treat each of these squares as a 10-foot-by-10-foot area instead. Most mech size and distance values are divisible by 10; in rare cases where a range or size value is divisible by 5 but not by 10, round the value down to the nearest value divisible by 10. Thus, a Huge mech that would occupy a 15-foot-by-15-foot space would occupy a single square using a 10-foot scale, and a Huge mech’s reach would be 10 feet (one square) rather than 15 feet.
