    …an inch or two from the tip that, when imbedded in the enemies armor, would prevent the enemy from escaping and allow your bot to drag it around anywhere you please.
    Oh, oh, oh!
    You could also reel them in and wail on them with a secondary weapon!

    You could build an archery-bot and by-pass the “no unteathered projectiles” rule by using a modified CO2-powered impail-bot.
    Instead of the sharpened metal spike shooting forward several inches before stopping and retracting, it would shoot up to several yards out of the bot connected by a metal chain that would then retract and lock into place for the next shot.
    If you want to get really advanced, the spike would have 3-4 perpendicular spring-loaded metal plates protruding… see next post.

  4. Alot of bots …
    Alot of bots now-days have indepentant drive systems, backup recievers, and multiple weapons.
    Simply taking out one of the above mentioned parts will not ‘kill’ the enemy bot.

    Thats a big no no.
    If he were to do that, the blades would get stuck in the opponent and snap right off.
    Of course, that’s in the “best”-case scenario.

    I’d hit it… with a pulverizer.

    But seriously, a very nice design.
    I am slighly sprised that you don’t have any protection against getting flipped like most bots.
    Either a self-righting mechanism or just an object that will keep it from staying on it’s top.

    Thank you for articulating yourself so well in selecting the most superlative choice in this our English language and all it has to offer for a vocabulary.
