Tombstone SHW

Tombstone was a SuperHeavyweight built by Hardcore Robotics which competed in ROBOlympics 2004, as well as the 2004 RFL Nationals, and RoboGames 2005. It was a two-wheeled box-shaped invertible robot armed with a large horizontally-spinning bar. It performed well in competition winning a silver medal at the 2004 ROBOLympics, and being the runner-up in the 2004 RFL Nationals.

Tombstone would later be rebuilt into a Heavyweight, and compete at BattleBots where it did very well, even winning season 2 of the ABC Reboot. Tombstone was inducted into the Robot Combat Hall of Fame in 2005.
