More bots in 2.0!
BW rammer.
 


Another good MW HS...
 


HW VS. Axle loading is my friend in bots like these...
 


A fair warning- Do NOT let this bot hit your bot. It will obliterate any bot you put it up against (well, almost any bot...)
 


HW hammer. It's better than my previous HW hammers...
 


MW Insectoid? DSA, 397.0 kg.

you can save weight on some of those bots by cleaning up your extender work and getting rid of unnecessary stuff, for example you dont need that many baseplate anchors on the trinity sns as you can mount both the drive motor and piston on one anchor, similar to this:


the hammer looks good overall but you can once again save some weight by replacing the t connectors on the hammer arms with extenders attached with their side aps (the same applies to the vs with its t connectors), and would benefit from having the plows attached in a v shape to make trapping easier. the vs would also benefit from a wider wheelbase.

One of my bots in my Ai pack has that extender style- look closely at Evader from the team Awkward in 1.0.

Saw this design, built a similar, but different replica of it.

This isn't my best batch of bots, but the side hammer, HW and LW popups, and the drum spinner really stand out as good in my opinion.

Nah not really.

LW popup needs a shallower chassis wedge, HW popup's setup is inefficient, and the drum while clean doesn't look quite cohesive. I'd suggest shinies and Snapper IIs on the last one.

You should find a way to stabilize your drum without having as much open chassis sticking out. Horizontal weapons are already good at killing drums, but you could also be side hammer food as is.

the casters on the drum are really hurting your wedge effectiveness

you could definitely cut down on chassis space and probably get shinies on there too, take a look at click' drumblebee larva for inspiration

side hammer does look pretty slick

I knew you would say that. They actually prevent the drum from hitting the ground, and the wedges still hit the ground.

Okay. This bot may be mmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy, but it has a multitude of weapons, plus a good wedge making it surprisingly good! It can defeat bots of all types because of this.
 

799 kg, DSA, 3 supervolts.

Many other bots in 2.0 still exceed it, though.

I've been fiddling around with making battery-less bots for 2.0. Here are a few of them.

AW.
 


MW poker. 392kg. underweight. Pretty damaging, but slow. DSA.
 


BW HS.
 


Multiply the BW by 4, and you get...
DSA.
 


...now more basic bots.
Rebuilt N00b. Not so much of a n00b bot now, eh?
9 razors, DSA, 395.7kg.
 



Okay, I just invented a new bot type, inspired after the first of its kind- Kate's Revenge.
I call it- the Snare.
Snares are a combination of a popup and a hammer. They strike both the topside and underside of a bot at the same time.
Snares are powerful, but have trouble self-righting. (at least most of them do.)

...with that, here's the first Snare in 2.0.
 


...and a crawler. 245 kg. DSA for armor (I think...)

You know what happens when stock bots keep using the same old Z Tek motors? They become

G E N E R I C

You should use a different, more unique motor, like a Redbird Motor. In fact, my new bot type, the Walking Redbird Spinner uses Redbird Motors to good effect.
Notable Tournament Stuff, because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
