Nah, what you'd really do is set up a stationary chopper-style thing like in Ravenholm (Half-Life 2, anyone?). The noise would attract them as well as slice them into little bits.

what the hell are you guys talking about? We kind of build fighting robots. I say we bring those out first, then, when their batteries have died we bring out our hedge trimmers and saws drills and angle grinders and jigsaws, etc.

I always put ATLEAST enough battery power in all my robots to take down a small town. around 25-30 minutes of runtime atleast. I think I have enough firepower to take em...

Now THAT'S thinking ahead. If zombies ever attack, I know it'll be safe wherever you set up base; please tell me where your base is when they attack.

I don't know about you guys but my base will be in the Bales' garage. Because they have so many possible weapons in there. And machines to make weapons (including amazing CNC). And Tom Bales will be there so he can invent some crazy zombie killer thingy or he can just call some of his crazy friends to kill the zombies.

Mr. Bales already has that thing he made at Syntheon already, the thing that vibrates a thing metal rod really really fast to the point that it can cut through just about everything like butter.

The reason I think it's funny is it's been a bit of a staple weapon in star wars for a looooong time now - if someone is holding a melee weapon and it isn't a lightsaber, it's some kind of a vibroblade.

I don't think so, I'm not sure, but I don't think so. Besides, if it does work in the way that I'm remembering it, then it would be mean cuz we'd destroy all the other robot's electronics too.

This is battlebots. Destroying the other robot is the point. Well, unless you can immobilize them easier.

But then they wouldn't be able to fight in a loser's bracket match and they'd all hate us.

I've seen plenty of robots have their internals destroyed by lesser robots - although eXecuter has done enough damage to some robots' chassis that it might as well have destroyed their electronics. Can't drive when your motors & gearboxes are shot.

Are we talking just about the eXecutor guys now or the entire school's guys? cuz the driver for axiom didn't seem like an booty hole and he seemed pretty laid back.

The kid who drives executer isnt to bad but he's cocky, his dad is there advisor
The kid who drives exterminator is the biggest d bag

The kid who drives axiom isn't THAT quiet, he and I had a few short discussions, I don't remember what they were about, but he seemed nice enough.
