The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Gamma-Ray Observatory, anextensive air shower detector consisting of 300 water Cherenkov tanks located at 4100m in Puebla, Mexico, has been surveying the TeV gamma-ray sky for almost five years. HAWC can observe steady sources, variable sources, transients, which allows for probes of both astrophysical and particle physics phenomena. This includes the production and propagation of cosmic rays, studies of Lorentz invariance violation, and dark matter searches. I will discuss recent HAWC results as well as the future of the observatory.
