"Major, I'm reading heavy COM's chatter from the enemy base. Looks like they have a 'Mech...light, it looks like an Owens." - Lt. Foster to Major Natalia

"The Owens is extremely versatile and touts an arsenal of weapons that provide striking power at close range. It is one of the fastest 'Mechs, very well armored, and well suited for reconnaissance." -MechAssault 2 Manual


The Owens is a Light 'Mech that weighs approximately 35 tons and has a speed of about 32 mph. It is equipped with two offensive weapons: twin Machine Guns and dual Crossbow Short-Range Missiles (SRMs). It also has Reactive Armor for defense against Ballistic weapons. What it lacks in firepower and armor is made up for in speed. The Owens has one variant, the Hackman.


Being one of the few 'Mechs that only possesses two-weapon platforms, the Owens sacrifices a third weapon and jump-jets for speed. A double machine gun is mounted behind the cockpit. Dual Crossbow SRM's attached parallel to the shoulders allow for support when fighting multiple enemies with allies at hand. Can out run anything but a VTOL. The best for scouting due to it's great speed, also can take down heavy and assault mechs if in a large group, or if supporting other assault or heavy mechs.


The title of "Fastest" 'Mech is owned by the Owens. It is capable of outrunning any other enemy ('Mech, Tank, some flying units). The Owens' speed comes at the cost of armor, however, and it is better suited to the role of a scout than actually taking on heavier 'Mechs in combat.

Strategy Edit

This 'Mech was not built for combat, so if in a team, use for scouting the environment. In any other case, run. The Crossbow missiles are your only source of damage, so use them carefully. Level up all of your weapons if possible. Use the Reactive Shield when being gunned down by ballistic fire. Speed is essential when having to take on other enemies.


  • The Owens is the first 'Mech that is fought both in MechAssault and MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf
  • This Mech is also the fastest 'Mech in both games
