Vulture

Vulture was a heavyweight robot which competed in Series 10 of Robot Wars. It was entered by Team Immersion, some of whom had previously entered the Series 8 pilot with Tanto. After reaching the Heat Semi-Final, Vulture settled for fourth place in its heat after withdrawing shortly before its Third Place Play-off. The robot is named after the way Vulture's weapon will 'prey on the weaknesses of other robots' like the bird of prey, but is also inspired by a song by the band Pendulum.

Vulture competed in Heat 3, where in its first battle, it would face seasoned teams in Team Hurtz and Team Danby, with their robots Terrorhurtz and Apex. Dara Ó Briain remarked his surprise at Team Immersion's build quality in spite of their non-technical working backgrounds. Vulture had applied its anti-spinner scoop in order to defend itself against Apex.

"This is fantastically ludicrous, this is a folly, this is madness that you'd even think you could compete here, but this looks great!"
— Dara Ó Briain

  • ...that of all the UK Championships, Heat O was the only heat to always feature a previous year's heat winner?
  • ...that in The Second Wars Semi-Finals, G.B.H. was eliminated with a score that would have put it as high as second in the other semi-finals.
  • ...that Apollo is the only Grand Champion in Robot Wars history to have reached the Grand Final via wildcard?
