AIRED:
Robot Wars: The Armageddon! Four awesome robots have made it this far, but who will be crowned the new UK Champion? Tornado From: Cambridgeshire Seated: #12 Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.41M X 1.93M X 1.38M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Spinning Disc Strengths: Interchangeable Weapons Weaknesses: Unreliable Team Captain: Andrew Marchant With: David Gamble and Bryan Moss Firestorm IV From: Durham Seated: #3 Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 0.36M X 1.10M X 0.83M Power: Electric Motors Weapons: Pneumatic Flipper Strengths: Excellent Manoeuverability Weaknesses: 2 Wheel Drive Team Captain: Graham Bone With: Hazel Haslop Razer Seated: #1 and Reining Champion Weight: 96 Kilos Dimensions: 0.55M X 1.10M X 0.63M Power: 2 X 1000W Electric Motors Weapons: Hydraulic Piercer Strengths: Nimble and Very Accurate Weaknesses: Slow Self-Righting Team Captain: Ian Lewis With: Simon Scott and Vincent Blood Terrorhurtz From: Oxfordshire Weight: 99 Kilos Dimensions: 0.50M X 1.25M X 1.05M Power: 2 X 1000W Electric Motors Weapons: Double-Headed Axe Strengths: Strong Armour Weaknesses: Unpredictable Team Captain: John Reid With: Dominic Parkinson Fight 1: Terrorhurtz Vs Razer House Robots: Shunt and Sir Killalot Terrorhurtz had a very powerful axe, but Razer showed no mercy. They avoided the axe and dug their claw into Terrorhurtz's plexiglass panel. Terrorhurtz tried to fight back with the axe, but they were missing Razer completely. Razer pushed Terrorhurtz into Shunt, who then axed Terrorhurtz. Terrorhurtz escaped and then lined up for another strike, but then they got a spasm from an ineffective axe blow and Razer got under it and buried his claw into Terrorhurtz again. Razer dragged Terrorhurtz into the Pit Button and then lifted Terrorhurtz up and lowered them into the Pit. Razer goes through and is one step closer to retaining the title! Fight 2: Firestorm IV Vs Tornado House Robots: Shunt and Mr. Psycho Tornado had been working hard to fix their robot after their "affair" with Matilda. When Phillipa interviewed them, they were ready. In the fight, it seemed evenly matched. Tornado pushed Firestorm around the arena for a bit. Firestorm was having trouble getting under Tornado because their scoop was so low to the ground. Eventually they pushed Tornado into Shunt and Tornado got axed by the House Robot. Firestorm wedged Tornado into the wall. Tornado's wheels started smoking as they then pushed Firestorm back. Firestorm then got under Tornado again and pushed THEM around for a bit. Tornado was beginning to falter as they pressed the Pit Button. Tornado then got under Firestorm and slammed them into Shunt. After axing Firestorm, Shunt axed Tornado, nearly hitting the reciever. Firestorm flipped Tornado over. Tornado's scoop was now ineffective...until Firestorm flipped them again. Tornado then got under Firestorm and slammed them into the Pit Button. This was close for the judges to call, but before time could run out, Tornado got under Firestorm and pushed them into the Pit! The #12 seeds are through to the last round of the Championship! As Craig was interviewing the Tornado team, Andrew said that they had a little surprise for Razer. They had been beaten by Razer twice, but what would happen in the Final? What does Tornado have in store for Razer? Just before the playoffs, Robot Wars held an award show like they do every year. Here's a list of the awards won by competitior robots. Best Design Award: 259 Best Enginnered: Anarchy Most Original Entry: Crushtacean Sportsmanship Award: Kat III Most Promising Newcomer: Dantomkia Congratulations, finally somebody's won something. (Yeah...) Now back to the show. Playoffs: Firestorm Vs Terrorhurtz House Robots: Dead Metal and Shunt Firestorm came out and slammed into Terrorhurtz. Terrorhurtz axed Firestorm a few times and then Firestorm drove into Shunt, nearly flipping him...again! Terrorhurtz and Shunt then started axing Firestorm, puncturing it relentlessly. Firestorm escaped, but Terrorhurtz just stood there, axing the arena floor and jumping in the air. Something had gone wrong with their drive. They were stuck so Refbot counted them out. Terrorhurtz continued axing and jumping around, nearly jumping onto the flame pit! Dead Metal and Shunt moved in...but they seemed to be a bit too scared to go near Terrorhurtz! That axe is everywhere! Eventually, they were able to move Terrorhurtz to the floor flipper and flip them. Then, after some unorthedox jumping around, Shunt pitted Terrorhurtz. So Firestorm gets 3rd place...for the 3rd year in a row! Everyone was ready for the Grand Final. Razer was 2-0 over Razer, so there was no doubt that Razer was going to win and continue his winning streak. UNTIL Phillipa interviewed Razer down in the Pits, we notice that Razer has this sort of horn attached to its beak. There was no way that horn would cause any damage...UNTIL we see Tornado. It looked nothing like Tornado, but a Tornado with a giant lawnmower blade on the front along with a HUGE steel cage surrounding Tornado. When Prof. Noel Sharkey told Phillipa that this legal, we all know we're in for a big Grand Final! ++ Final: Razer Vs Tornado++ House Robots: Shunt and Dead Metal At the beginning of every fight, Razer would always come out and bury his claw into the other robot and disable them...but now the tables have turned!! Tornado slammed into Razer. Razer then tried to use his horn to grab onto Tornado's "Anti-Crusher Weapon", but Tornado then slammed into Razer again. Razer was able to grab onto the cage, but then Tornado smacked into them again. Tornado's lawnmower blade broke, but forget it! Tornado still has the cage! The Anti-Crusher Weapon was so big that Refbot had to be forced into the CPZ! Tornado slammed Razer into the disc button. The Disc was activated, but it was hardly involved in this fight. Razer was stuck behind the disc button, allowing Tornado to come in and add insult to injury!! Refbot tried to free Razer, but then Tornado slammed into Razer again. Razer got unstuck, but there was no escape. Razer was then pushed into the CPZ and Dead Metal buried his saw into Razer's srimech. Tornado then pushed Razer into Shunt, who axed and lifted Razer up. Tornado pressed the Pit Button. Poor Razer was losing fast...until, they were finally able to grab hold of Tornado's cage and raise them up! Now Razer had to push Tornado down the Pit, but the Anti-Crusher Weapon was too big. Tornado just hovered over the Pit. Jonathan Pearce called Tornado's Anti-Crusher Weapon an Anti-Pit Device! Cease was called after this fantastic fight. This was a very close decision. It took nearly 45 minutes for the judges to decide who would be the next UK Champion. Later, the teams were brought up to Craig's box. After looking at style, control, damage and agression, the judges decided that the winners are... TORNADO! Razer were guttered, but all winning streaks have to end eventually. Tornado had been seeded the lowest in the 6th Wars. Now they are seeded the highest! Phillipa came into the box and handed the Tornado team their trophey. Tornado are the new UK Champions!moreless
