Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show
Steg 2 was Team Steg-O-Saw-Us's second entry to Robot Wars, it competed exclusively in Series 4. It was a large box-wedge shaped robot armoured with transparent, aerospace aluminium and bulletproof polycarbonate. The robot also had a "monocoque" chassis, similar in shape to that of Reptirron The Second, and Steg-O-Saw-Us (the team's very successful entry for the previous series). The lifting tail of Steg-O-Saw-Us was replaced with a much improved flipper, which was used to quickly dispatch several of its opponents on the way to winning its heat. The robot was seeded number 7 for the main competition. Julia Reed and Jonathan Pearce incorrectly stated that Steg-O-Saw-Us had gone out in the Semi Finals whereas in fact it lost to Hypno-Disc in the Grand Final.
The team replaced Steg 2 after Series 4 with 3 Stegs to Heaven, which competed in Series 5 and the first series of Extreme. Team captain Rob Heasman was also part of the Oblark team during the Armed Forces Special of Extreme Series 1.
Due to the great success of Steg-O-Saw-Us in the Third Wars, Steg 2 was seeded 7th for the Fourth Wars. The first round battle for Steg 2 saw it go up against Cronos and Crusader 2. This battle was a rather close match, with Steg 2 throwing Cronos around in the air and Crusader 2 bravely ramming Steg 2 into the arena side wall a couple of times. Cronos was thrown again and again by the seeded machine, before Crusader 2 taking over and pushing Cronos into the CPZ, before Sir Killalot picked up Cronos and pitted it, despite Cronos not being fully immobilised. Crusader 2 proceeded through to Round 2 with Steg 2 as it had been very aggressive and controlled.
Steg 2 then fought newcomers Iron Awe in the second round. Steg 2 flipped Iron Awe, but Iron Awe self-righted using its axe, becoming the first robot to self-right using an axe. Steg 2 flipped Iron Awe numerous times, but Iron Awe kept on self-righting. However towards the end all the flips and self-righting seemed to have broken something inside Iron Awe as it began to slow. Steg 2 took a break from attacking Iron Awe and flipped over Matilda, much to the delight of the crowd. The match went to a judges' decision, where the judges put Steg 2 through to the heat final.
In the heat final, Steg 2 fought the 23rd seeds Mortis. Mid-way during the battle, Mortis' lifting arm jammed open, meaning it couldn't self-right. Taking advantage of this and its opponent's high ground clearance, Steg 2 was able to get underneath Mortis and flip it around the arena, with Mortis offering little to no retaliation due to its technical problems. Eventually, after a long and one sided battle, Mortis was propped onto its front wedge with the arm still jammed, the pit opened and the 7th seed pushed Mortis down the pit. Steg 2 was through to the series Semi-Finals.
However, the team faced an unlucky draw in the first round of the Semi-Finals, coming up against the reigning champions Chaos 2. The match had a lot of flipping, with Chaos 2 flipping Steg 2 around the arena, but Steg 2 managing to self-right. The underdogs managed to flip Chaos 2 over at one point, but Chaos 2 easily self-righted. Chaos 2 then flipped Steg 2 onto its side. Steg 2 tried to self-right, but it had run out of CO2. With its flipper stuck open, Steg 2 was declared immobilised and put onto the floor flipper by the house robots and was sent flying through the air, landing on its back. Still unable to self-right, Steg 2 was eliminated from the competition.
