Huntsman was a Heavyweight robot built by Hellfire Labs that competed in RoboGames 2012. It was a black and purple, two-wheeled robot armed with an electrically powered axe. Huntsman suffered from mobility issues all throughout the tournament, and as a result did not do very well, winning only one fight, and losing two, despite this it remains the most successful Australian Heavyweight, as the only other two Death Roll, and Terror Australis lost all of their matches. Following the event the robot was sold to Team Death by Monkeys for $400 USD, and it would compete the following year as Big Monkey, where it lost both of its fights.
Robot History Edit
Although Huntsman performed well during testing and weapon safety checks, it immediately lost a weapon chain from one of its 2 weapon motors at the beginning of the fight. It however won the fight when The Wasp suffered an electrical failure.
Huntsman's tactic was to hide in the corner with the poorest visibility from Ray Billings driver's position and attack Last Rites after its first attack. This failed when the first hit from Last Rites shattered the magnets on all 4 of Huntsman's golf cart motors, disabling the robot. It took 8 hours to glue the magnets and brushes back into the motors.
The repairs to the motors were unsuccessful. The fight against Kick Me begun with limited movement, with the drive motors eventually failing.
