- "Welcome Chaos 2, a previous champion of Robot Wars, he's fast, lean and mean, with a flipper powerful enough to throw his adversaries out of the arena."
- — Jonathan Pearce's in-game commentary
Chaos 2 was a competitor robot from Robot Wars. It competed in Series 3-6, and was reknown for its track record in the earlier series, for being the only robot to win the UK title twice (in Series 3 and 4) and being the first robot to flip another out of the arena (Firestorm in Series 3). Chaos 2 appears in the video game Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction. It appears in all five Robot Wars video games made, it shares this feat with Pussycat.
Appearance and ArmamentEdit
Like its real life counterpart, in the game, Chaos 2 is a black, wedge shaped robot, with grey side panels, and a flipper on the front, with the name "Chaos 2" printed on it, the flipper also acts as a srimech. Chaos 2 is also two wheel drive, with two large wheels at the front, and two small caster wheels at the back. Due to more potential for the graphics provided by the switch to the PC console, Chaos 2's features are much more distinguished in Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction than in earlier games such as Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem.
Using Chaos 2Edit
Chaos 2 is a very effective robot, particularly in comparison than most other robots in the game. The most effective method of defeating an opponent (preferably a CPU) as Chaos 2 is to flip them. Most CPU robots are unable to self-right, so they will be stranded. However, the flipper can be easily broken when the player is controlling Chaos 2, so if the flipper does come off, Chaos 2 can be used as a ramming robot to an extent, due to the wedge shape. This is also a viable tactic when tackling a robot that can self-right.
Against Chaos 2Edit
Chaos 2 is a very difficult robot to defeat in this game. However, it is fairly slow in turning, so it could be possible to catch Chaos 2 broad-side, and try to nag away at it, possibly trying to push it into an arena hazard, such as the pit or a CPZ. Chaos 2's armour is also fairly weak in the game, so this tactic may also cause Chaos 2 some damage too.
Differences from Real LifeEdit
- Chaos 2 is slightly shorter in height and longer in length than in real life.
- The rear panel is blank in the game, whereas it is transparent in real life.
- Chaos 2 is slow to turn in-game.
