No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed!

Image

clamps down

Image

Speed: 7
Traction: 5 (+1 track bonus)
Torque: 3
Weapon: 5 (3/3 split between the clamp and the saws)
Armor: 10 (+2 front plow)

Completely ridiculous design incoming. And a ridiculous name to boot.

No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed! is a design akin to Red Devil, but on crack. So, how does this design might work? It's pretty simple, as the top clamps and srimech share the same system. (the bottom forks are unpowered, and are hinged, but on a ~5-10 degree limiter downwards, same goes for the front plows of the robot.) The general gist behind No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed is that I can sneak up on my opponent, clamp down on them with my clamp, and let the saws on the front grind away at my opponent--thus creating sparks that'll woo the judges and accumulate points.

Fuck me, I think I need to go to bed.

i WAS going to do Kid A (my personal favorite in radiohead's discography), but considering that you already have a bot themed after that album, i figured that i should do a bot themed after The Eraser.

good to know that my shenanigans have inspired another person though lgsdjklsgdklsd

flipper active

Speed: 7
Traction: 6
Torque: 2
Weapon: 5
Armor: 10 (+2 front wedge)

Fairly bog-standard and speedy 4WD CO2-powered rear-hinged flipper with that good ol' brushless drive. Front wedges are hinged on a ~5 or so limiter downwards. CO2 is ejected out from the four pipes on the back when the flipper pops.

ACAMS prolly does have a robot of the same name from like, ~2007-2009, but then again--all that stuff was around 10 years ago. Plus, flexing on dumbass conservatives who think I shouldn't have rights, simply for being nonbinary--is always a national past-time worth doing.
