Particle Accelerator was a middleweight robot that also competed in the Heavyweight division. It made its debut in the third and final season of Robotica. Afterwards, it competed in every Steel Conflict tournament, as well as various events on the live circuit.

Design Edit

It was initially a gray six-wheeled box shaped robot armed with a 12-inch vertical spinning sawblade. It went through several revisions throughout the years.

Particle Accelerator 2.0 used a horizontal spinning disc in the place of the saw.

Particle Accelerator 4.0 had a forked wedge in the place of the disc and also saw the addition of a rear axe.

Particle Accelerator 5.0 had a different set of wheels, a new chassis, and a yellow lifting arm in the place of the forks, which could be swapped for a spinning drum.

Particle Accelerator 6.0 used a new, shorter body, which also saw the addition of a pronged tail that could be converted into a wedge, two rods accompanying the lifter on each side, the reduction from six wheels to four wheels, and the addition of teeth at the bottom of the lifter to protect the actuator.

Particle Accelerator 9.0, the last version of the lineup, did not have a lot of changes, apart from using newer, bigger tires (However, the tires had to be cut in half to save weight, which eventually became its undoing in its very last match).
