Recently at techkriti, i faced a lot of difficulties in deciding an efficient weaponary system that could be employed taking care of the weight limit of about 6 kgs. I would be very much thankful if you suggest me the efficient ones........

I still think powerful wheel motors + durable chassis are the strongest weapons for robowars. If your robot can slam into the other robot hard enough and possibly topple it.. there is nothing else that can match it. Hatchets and chainsaws and hammers are all nice but if your processing board is in the center closer to the ground, there is barely any weapon system that can damage it. Slamming hard enough usually takes care of the makeshift battery, motor, RF module wire connections that most competition robots have, rendering them useless.

Add slopes on all sides of your robot. Then whether anyone slams into you or you slam into anyone, result will be the same.

Agree with Rao a strong metal chassis with 4 or 6 powerful motors will win half the battle.

Try keep the minimum height with slope so that your bot is not easily picked up.Watch the video for more ideas:


This is not allowed in Most of the INDIAN tech fests but a Big FLAMETHROWER can blow the circuit off.It can actually fry all those components & Motor Drivers.Its complicated to make & heavy & is difficult to control but if done correctly it can win you the battle.Here is a classic example of flame thrower:
