Our Robowars Nationals Tournament finally returned with 22 of Australia’s best robots battling it out for the title of Australian Champion. After a 4 year hiatus we were finally able to bring our top bots from South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland to see who would be the top robot. With 54 fights over 8 sold out sessions the crowd got an up close look at the action as competitors didn’t hold back in the arena.
This year’s competition format was three qualifying rounds followed by the top 8 ranked robots fighting it out in a single elimination tournament.
Three competitors stood out, undefeated as our top 3 ranked bots in the finals.
Obliterator: a high powered horizontal spinner a former finalist in 2018 and 2019;
Fling King: a new CO2 flipper from one of our veteran builders; and
Derive: a spinner lifter from a rookie featherweight builder.

Thanks again to all of our competitors and great to be back for another Robowars Nationals. We are looking forward to our next event the 2024 Robowars Sportsman Cup.
