Event Description

Welcome to the rules and guidelines for SmashBotz Wasteland Weekend edition. If you are reading this then you are probably interested in building your very own combat robot specific to this event. Due to the nature of this event, post-apocalyptic aesthetics are required for the competition. This rule set covers most of the safety protocols in robotic combat competitions for the safety of everyone involved. Please keep in mind that if at safety check-in a robot is deemed unsafe by the organizers, there is a chance the robot may not compete or may be asked to not use the “unsafe feature” of the robot. Please feel free to reach out to the competition organizer if you have any questions. That being said; have fun with your creation and see you in the pit!  Event Summary: Two robots compete in a head-to-head match following the basics of boxing. Like boxing, the robots are 1 minute per round, in which either one of the robots is knocked out or the match time runs out. The audience decides the winner in the case of no knock-out. Most anything goes in terms of weapons such as wedges, hammers, swords, spikes, flippers, grabbers etc. Robot Weight Range: 50Lbs Robot Dimensions: Must be at least 12 inches tall. Arena Specifications: Roughly 30 foot diameter steel fence on a post-apocalyptic off-road terrain so plan your wheels to have adequate traction in soft sand/dirt. Robot Control: Radio Control preferred 2.4Ghz (DSM,DSM2) *Trick Tip: Keep an eye out for abandoned power wheels. These serve as a simple platform to build your robot creation! Most power wheels come with 2 separate motors on the same axle that can be wired independently for “tank style” control of the robot.
