Try 2 hammers and 2 wedges.

Oh right I forgot about this:



It's not the best, as the hammers are still quite slow on the return, and can get chewed off.  I tried a setup shortly after which uses counterweights, but it's still not the best.  I also am still trying to figure out a setup where I can make sure it's stable and doesn't flop over on it's head half the time, that seems to happen more times than I'd like.  IIRC there's about 3 supervolts in there, which I'm not sure if it's overkill, but I think it gets the job done.

Uhhhh.....



This feels more like a proof of concept style of HS than anything really.  I guess this was a Mr. Hell bot from Starcore AI V3.  An undercutter 24HS.  Kinda wanted to keep that style and get the weapons to actually all hit and do some actual undercutting, and give stronger armor.  So it has some top and bottom armor, and the plows seem wide enough to not  easily expose the wheels.  Why this style of weapon formation?  Well, Geese actually did this kinda same style for a Bitter Box rebuild a year ago, and wanted to kinda keep the same style for the other bots in the team.  Also kinda gives the "Devil's Horns" kinda vibe as well, so I guess that's neat.  Also even if I did have the 24 kg, im not entirely sure what exactly I could use beyond at least maybe two casters.

Also side note, the extender work is something I'm kinda iffy on.  It took a while to come up with it and get it actually done, but I don't even know if this was my best work as well.

undercutter HS really only work with razors in my experience. Looks alright but more a circa 2009 bot instead of a 2019 bot

Looks like Super Tempest. Nice build.

tfw you couldn't find your showcase originally but then you realize you forgot you became a vet

Well BOTM is over, and I think y'all know me by now so no point in not showing it I guess.



Most certainly a joke-bot, but somehow it's actually kinda decent.  I kinda made a similar bot a few years back, but that was a SHW.  So I thought to find a way to scale it down to HW cause HW's are still quite fun.  I almost forgot I even made that thing looking back, and how awkward I was trying to relive the past as if I was actually there.  Being an adult kinda sucks, even If I'm not that old.  Anyway, so the bot is also kinda inspired by Click's Swiss Army Bot as well, but to a more wack degree cause of all the other bot types crammed in.  Some don't work as well as others and some are overridden due to the combinations, but it still kinda works.  Certainly kept myself on the theme of "do everything" which would explain why the skin is mostly using all the texture and edge selections, and why the splash has this magazine letter collage.  It's as strange as you would imagine, which was the goal.

Gonna celebrate RA2's 16th Anniversary a little late, but eh.  I didn't have much anyway, but I got a couple SCAI Inspired builds, although I'm not entirely sure if they could be completely fit to be full-on rebuilds, cause some I probably went a little too far off track with how the original build was.



Kinda revealed this one yesterday, but I feel I should show it regardless.  As stated, it's most likely a good bot, but as a Spikefan bot, maybe not as much.  I did want to implement the spike wedge and Dual VS design.  At least I tried to keep it kinda unique.



Time Pixie I took some liberties from the Piston-Sidehammer idea, but making a separate Poker/Sidehammer hybrid would be interesting, but I don't think it would help make a good design due to the counter-intuitiveness of it.  Not much else to say to be honest.



Infernium is strange for me, but I think I implemented enough details from the original bot to feel it would be an appropriate rebuild.  2WD, VS with alternating weapons from the original, Ramplate armored front sloped wedge, the works.  But it feels too different at the same time.



Kraken I feel kinda proud of, but out of all these, I feel this is the least inspired from the original idea.  Not entirely sure what I could do to make it better against non-HS at this point, which is what Pokers kinda suffer from.

At least they're kinda good on their own merits, so as a builder, that might be an accomplishment.

piston side hammers work a lot better if they have air tanks

time pixie is probably the best aside from that.  maybe angle your spikes ups some more imo

Try a 5ztek, 45 claw HS..
I decided to give this a try as well.  Was Brainstorming the math at work and just did a simple setup to keep it easy for building.



Doesn't do too bad actually.  I thought it might be mediocre or lose it's weapons due to the motors being half the power of HPZs, but seems to keep enough of its weapons for the war of attrition.  I might even get experimental and see if I can get maybe a 6 ZTek HS but only a 42 HS and see how far I can go with that.  Nothing too spectacular aside from that, but I guess I managed to do it so yay(?).

I wonder why I didn't think it was possible with 2 snappers... maybe I was trying too hard for HPZ drive. Nice.

the challenge comes from doing it with two extenders for weapons but it's still a nice build
