W.A.S.P. was a robot that competed in Series 6 of Robot Wars. Although the name was an obvious reference to wasps, it in fact stood for "What a Silly Project".


WASP Arena

W.A.S.P. in the arena

It was invertible with rubber suspension on the tyres and painted to look like a wasp. It had a strong chassis but had light armour which proved to be its Achilles' heel in its only battle. Its weapons were a spinning disc and tail spike. The robot was two-wheel driven, but featured a castor at the rear for balance.

W.A.S.P. had an unlucky draw in its only appearance, as it was drawn against the reigning champion Razer, alongside Raging Reality and Brutus Maximus.

It was moving very slowly, allowing Brutus Maximus to push it towards Sir Killalot's CPZ. It managed to avoid the House Robot, but was flipped onto Razer by Raging Reality, then flipped again onto Sir Killalot. It recieved damage to the front armour, and was barely moving, before being flipped back into the CPZ by Raging Reality. W.A.S.P. had a large hole drilled in the armour and was picked up by the lance of Sir Killalot. As Brutus Maximus was counted out, Razer came in to crush through the armour again, before being counted out by Refbot.

Despite the damage W.A.S.P. recieved from Sir Killalot and Razer, in the post-battle its internals appeared undamaged by the two robots.
