Reaper's Hug looks groovy, how well do the Behemoth scoops direct opponents into the weapon?

It works pretty well actually. The main issue with the bot is the low-ish reach, but it's not a huge issue. The DPS is insane.

yeah, the firestorm flipper. It works really well as a srimech. I'd usually prefer to make my bots invertible or auto-self-righting, since a srimech is wasted weight that could be spent on something else. It's really difficult to get either of those 2 options when you're working with the behemoth scoop side panels though since they're so tall.

Based on a lynel from Zelda: Breath of the Wild (specifically the one with the shock arrows). Was going for an archer on horseback vibe, which is where the piston on 4WD base came from. Looked at spike strips and thought they could represent lightning arrows from BotW quite well, adn the armour panels on the front are a bit like the lynel's armour plates. And the two sheets that point up are like a couple of horns.

My bot for VG Showdown 2. Above is the justification I gave freeziez for it being video game related. Based on (or moreso inspired by) the dude below

Click me for the HQ video splash

The hammer prevents bots from just flying over the top. Also does a bit extra damage, helps with bots with halfsheet armour and acts as a srimech. Great wedges too.

Link to HQ video
I'm not happy with how I did the rear motors, but oh well. Inspired by the McLaren MCL-34 F1 car.

Awesome. The race car aesthetics look very good. I particularly like how you did the skin, the front of the bot, and the hammer

The rear sucked so I changed it a bit

 

 

 


New motorguards, detached the 'rear wing' endplates from the hammer arm
