"It took six months to build, nearly driving the team loco!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Loco was a cylinder shaped robot, designed on a ghost train that competed in Series 2 of Robot Wars. It had a stainless steel shell with a 24V motor powering the ram at the front, which also had interchangeable spikes and blade but had a sluggish turning circle. It managed to reach the Heat Final, but was beaten by Cassius. The team entered Series 3 with a different robot called Dundee.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 2Edit

Loco started quickly and immediately chose to take on the Sentinel. It managed to get past the Sentinel after a quick boost of speed, but then Dead Metal grabbed Loco in its pincers and tried to cut into Loco with its circular saw. Dead Metal then pushed Loco into the Pit of Oblivion, but Loco still managed to cover 10.4 metres placing it 3rd on the leader board. Next was the Trial stage which in this heat was Football. Loco drove towards the ball straight away, but was beaten by the much faster Cassius. However the House Robots then attacked Cassius which allowed Loco to take the ball and push it over the line sending it through to the Arena stage. In the arena it met Groundhog and Loco immediately charged and started to push Groundhog around. Loco then pushed Groundhog into the PPZ and Shunt landed a few axe blows to the top of Groundhog, who then got pinned into the corner and was attacked by the House Robots until being pitted, sending Loco through to the Heat Final. Against Cassius in the Final, Loco dodged Cassius's initial charge and Loco attempted to use its ram, but Cassius was too quick and Loco's weapon missed, then Cassius got underneath Loco and tried to flip it, but Loco landed on its wheels. However, Cassius then pushed Loco some more and eventually got underneath Loco again and managed to flip Loco onto its back, with Loco unable to self-right the House Robots attacked it, but Loco were saved from destruction by Cassius, who attacked all of the House Robots and Loco was left untouched for the remainder of the battle.
