Last Rites

Last Rites is bar spinner from Team Hardcore Robotics. It was the 2008 and 2012 ComBots Champion, and is one of the "Big Three" in US combat robotics, alongside Sewer Snake and Original Sin [1]. Last Rites first competed at the 2005 ComBots Cup where it went 2-2.


Design and Build Edit

Last Rite's frame is made from 1 inch Chrome Moly Tubing chrominum-molybdenum alloy tubing used where light strong structural tubing is needed for example aircraft [2]. The completed frame is around 18% of the total weight of the robot, and needs to be replaced roughly every 2 events.  The robot is driven by two NPC T-64s DC electric motors at 33v and the weapon motor is an ME0708 (also known as the Etek-R) running at 58V.  Last Rights has a range of weapon bars of various lengths (and therefore different tip speeds), weights, and densities. 

Event History Edit

ComBots Cup I Edit

Last Rites first faced Sewer Snake. This match started with Last Rite spinning up to full speed. Sewer Snake then immediately charged at Last Rites, causing sparks to fly, and Last Rites to fly through the air and land upsidedown. Now with Last Rites up to speed again Sewer Snake slamed into it, causing parts to come out of Last Rites, and Last Rites tapped out. This put Last Rites in the loser’s bracket where it faced Pump. However Pump had issues and was forced to forfeit. Last Rites then advanced to the next round where it faced Body Slam. This fight started with Last Rites spinning up to speed and making contact to Body Slam’s wedge, sending pieces flying. This continued until Last Rites blade stopped spinning. However Body Slam was too badly damaged to do anything to Last Rites and drove to the wall where on half of its drive failed. Last Rites blade then started working again and hit Body Slam, completely distroying the robot causing them to tap out. Last Rites won by knockout. Last Rites would then lose to Brutality.

RoboGames 2006Edit

Last Rites lost both it's first round fights to Devil's Plunger, and SJ. [3]

ComBots Cup II Edit

RoboGames 2007Edit

Last Rites had much more success the following year at Robogames 2007 beating Eugene, Brutality, Sir Loin, and returning champion Original Sin, before losing in the finals to Sewer Snake. [4] Eugene was KO'd in 27 seconds. [5] Brutality- armed with a flamethrower and a wedge (and no spinning bar) came close to beating Last Rites after Last Rites lost a wheel during their match. However after 73 seconds Brutality tapped out after being KO'd [6]. Sir Loin was KO'd in around 15 seconds after having it's spinning "egg beater" weapon pulled off [7]. Original Sin was next, after tearing off two of Original Sin's Tires within the first few seconds and a third within 20 seconds Original Sin survived a total of 80 seconds before the last tire was removed and they tapped out [8]. In the final Sewer Snake removed two of their six wheels to make weight available for a heavier scoop. During the fight Sewer Snake upended Last Rites and wheel and motor unit detached from Last Rites. Struggling with mobility Last Rites Survived 1 minute 10 seconds before Sewer Snake trapped them on the arena wall [9].

After getting a bye in the first round, Last Rites first fight in RoboGames 2017 was against Sabre-X, this match started with Sabre-X going in wedge first, but moving sluggishly. Last Rites took advantage of this, and ripped off one of Sabre-X's wheelguards as well as a wheel. Last Rites then delivered one more hit to Sabre-X which quit moving, and was counted out.

This put Last Rites in the quarterfinals where it faced Whoops!.
