"We found this box in the barn. We call it Rot Box, and we put a little weapon on him."
— Jason Barger on Rot Box

Rot Box was a loanerbot that was leant to Team Boltz for various competitions in both seasons of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors. In Season 1, it fought in the Robot Rebellion competition, losing its heat to Rosie the Riveter. Redesigned and renamed Bang, it also fought in the Season 2 Tag Team Terror, paired with Snookums, but was again eliminated in the first round there.

Team Boltz also competed across both seasons of Extreme Warriors with Mad Cow, Psycho Chicken and Mad Cow Bot, the latter lent to Team Think Tank for Season 2.

DesignEdit

Bang

Bang

Rot Box was a large two-wheel drive box-shaped robot, featuring a wooden body, a set of five front spikes, and a pneumatic spiked axe with a head designed to resemble that of a morning star mace. It featured a top speed of 14mph and was capable of pulling a pick-up truck at that speed.

For Season 2, Rot Box was renamed Bang, and featured several minor changes from its original incarnation. The robot was quoted as being lighter at 187lbs, while the front spikes were removed and the wooden body repainted white to resemble a crate of TNT. Messages reading "DANGER" and "TNT EXPLOSIVE TNT" were also written in red on Bang’s panels to reflect its new theme, while the axe was quoted by Stefan Frank as being capable of operating at 1000psi.

Under both guises, Rot Box/Bang possessed good manoeuvrability and speed across the arena. However, its axe proved largely ineffective in combat, and its tires were exposed and vulnerable to being damaged, the latter issue contributing to both of its losses in Extreme Warriors.

Robot HistoryEdit

Season 1Edit

Rot Box solely competed in the Robot Rebellion, facing Rosie the Riveter in its heat. It hit Rosie the Riveter with its morning star as the latter drove into it, knocking some of the latter’s decorations as it was pushed into the wall. The two robots pushed each other near – and over - the Flame Pit, with Rot Box being steered around the arena and into the wall again by Rosie the Riveter. Rot Box struggled to move away as Rosie the Riveter rammed it again, but eventually drove forward and spun round before Rosie the Riveter pushed it close to Dead Metal’s CPZ.

Dead Metal grabbed Rot Box and sliced through its wooden armor, before Rot Box spun and drove into Refbot just as Rosie the Riveter drove itself up his front plough. It attempted to axe Rosie the Riveter as Refbot backed away, but missed, and was left immobilized on one side after one of its tires was punctured following an attack from Rosie the Riveter. Refbot counted Rot Box out before Dead Metal and Sir Killalot positioned it over the Floor Flipper, where it was thrown onto its back. Sir Killalot then pushed Rot Box over the Flame Pit where it was left to burn and sustain more damage to its chassis from Dead Metal, before pitting it. This eliminated Rot Box from the Robot Rebellion.

Season 2Edit

"Well, we’ve got a box of TNT here and we believe we’re gonna do a bang-up job here!"
— Jason Barger before Bang and Snookums’ Tag Team Terror battle

Bang’s only appearance came in the Tag Team Terror competition, where it was paired with Snookums. In the first round, they faced G-Force and Sir Force A Lot, with Snookums and G-Force starting first. Bang left its corner as soon as it was tagged by Snookums, and dodged G-Force’s charge before driving towards it and being momentarily lifted and pushed away by G-Force. Sir Force A Lot slammed into Bang’s side with its blades, and Bang spun in circles over the Flame Pit before meeting Sir Force A Lot again and being pushed back. At this point, Bang was left immobilized as its right-hand tire became badly damaged, before it was positioned onto - and away from - the Floor Flipper by Sir Killalot. Both Sir Force A Lot and G-Force rammed Bang again, before G-Force pushed it into the wall and Shunt while axing it. Shunt axed and lifted Bang in his CPZ, before Sir Force A Lot pushed it across the arena and into the pit, where Bang was soon joined by Snookums. This eliminated both robots from the Tag Team Terror competition.

"Usually we see you out here with Psycho Chicken, but you proved today, without a shadow of a doubt, that you can lose with any robot!"
Mick Foley to Team Boltz after the Tag Team Terror battle
