Hammertron was a robot that exclusively competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. In its qualifier, Hammertron caused significant damage to a set of breeze-blocks, which was enough to see it qualify for the main competition. The version seen on television was a revised version of the one seen in the qualifiers, which had been lighter, slower and had had smaller hammers.
The team also considered entering another robot called Armstrong that was equipped with a motorised self-righting arm and used a suction system so it would stay low and hard to push. The team scrapped the suction feature in favour of making a better engineered robot. They even attempted to create Hammertron Mk2 though it's unknown if the robot attempted to qualify for the Forth Wars.
Robot History Edit
Hammertron looked very sluggish in the opening stages of the battle, as Sonic pushed it towards Dead Metal's corner patrol zone. Sonic was very nearly flipped over by the arena floor spike, but it recovered and Hammertron, which was barely moving, got turned over by a combination of the floor spike and a push by Sonic. Shunt closed in and axed its underside and Dead Metal sliced through one of its tracks, before it dumped it in the pit, the weapon detaching as it was pushed along the arena floor.
