that HS is quite generic.

I do like that flamethrower flying guillotine style bot, however, wish there was a way to make it competitive. hell, maybe it works against popups ? and by burning the drive out you get immobilizations ?

I probabaly could have WBP against my first opponent in the GTMCS but I was not feeling it with that robot.

This was a 7th option I had for the GTMCS (I tired to make like 15-18 robots)
245.5, DSA
I bet it wouldn't have done well.

I didn't test this robot on anything. I got caught up in HS building and put this project on hold.

So how is it meant to work? It runs into the opponent and the flail arms kinda swing round under their own momentum?

Yup and they swing fast in the garage too. It would probably work better with a plow like the AWs (I guess).

DSA. It'd be better if it didn't need forward momentum to turn.

>that asbesto-cropped weight

My guess is that the weapon motors being right there inside the drive is causing issues. The reactive force from the spinning Z-teks would interfere with the wheels trying to turn. Otherwise it looks good, assuming that very vulnerable T(?) isn't holding anything.

Oh no, far worse. That's an angle connector holding the drive and plows :puke:

By my quick count it has 46 irons, 4 razors to protect the weapon racks, 4 icepicks for stability, DSA 4 pinks, and really high up HPZs.

 

Generic LW Popup with 3 razors and DSA.


 

9HS with DSA. I also fell for the weapon breaker meme, lmao.


 

Big ramming rack, 4 razors, 2 supervolts. It's armored with DSA.


 

36 Maces, but they're colorful. So it's not generic?

I like the rammer, it's messy but scary. But, 4 pinks???

Popup could survive with less battery than that. And maybe try splitting that thicc chassis wedge into two or three arms?

HS could be made invertible?

Hammer could do with a lighter front rack so it can have some kind of trapping arms on the side.

Can't see anything in the HS but it's pretty.

Hey guys, you all kicked me to page two in the stock section, good job.

 

 

I kind of like it. 32 maces, DSA armor (as if I need any armor). It can survive HS enough to hit back hard.

 

This one was in a team tournament, it was bad. I'm not doing classical builders proud with this one. DSA

i actually really thought that was neon before the polls closed. i like it, specifically the R A M  P L A T E S in the middle for protection.

Very strong, but it makes up for that by being too much of a good thing. Have this odd feeling popups can roflstomp it by hitting the motors.

Nice design you got there. Only problem I see, it's underpowered.
