Dispenser
Unfortunately, it cannot dispense justice.

The dispenser is a mechanical unit produced by a Mechanist. Its primary function is to produce scrap metal, which can be used by the Mechanist in a variety of ways. Without a dispenser, the only source of scrap the mechanist has is from mechanical enemies they defeat in battle. Since scrap metal is such an important resource for the mechanist, an early-game dispenser is considered essential by many.

A dispenser takes up one of the mechanist's command slots. However, it is classified as a machine instead of a minion, and therefore it doesn't require a core to build one.

Once immobile, dispensers now have a propeller blade that allows them to travel with their creator and make scrap on the go.
