Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show

"2 wheelchair motors provide the power, a spike and cutting disc, the weaponry, 2mm steel, the shell."
Jonathan Pearce on Atlas' drive, armor and weaponry.

Atlas was a robot that participated in the third series of Robot Wars. It featured 2mm steel armour with a "West Country finish", a spike and cutting disc, complete with animatronic mascot, but lost in the first round to Challenger 2. The wheels came from a tractor, a lawnmower and a golf trolley. The team entered Thud in Series 2, originally in the heavyweight event, but the team missed their qualifier, fighting instead in the superheavyweight category and losing to Siren.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 3Edit

Atlas was against Challenger 2 in Round 1. Atlas sped out and rammed Challenger 2, but to little effect. Atlas turned to use its saw blade, but it caused little damage to Challenger's armour. Atlas pushed Challenger back, then was pushed back itself into a Side Grinder. Challenger backed away, and then rammed Atlas again. Neither of the two robots' weapons were effective, but Challenger kept up its attack. Sergeant Bash torched Atlas from his CPZ, before Atlas was rammed by Challenger again. These attacks rendered Atlas immobile, so the House Robots closed in.

"Let's turn the pages of the Atlas, shall we?"
— One of Jonathan Pearce's puns, relating to Sir Killalot lifting Atlas up with its lance.

Sir Killalot used his lance to crunch through the bodywork of Atlas, levering it up at the same time. Sir Killalot held it over the Flame Pit, in an attempt to melt the toy mech on the top of the robot. Instead, Shunt hacked its head off, and then smashed it down onto the flames below. Atlas was then dropped on the flames, but Shunt pushed it off after a while. Smoking, Shunt battered it with his axe until cease was called. Atlas was beaten, and eliminated from the competition.
