"Could bring about the end of the world for its opponents!"
Jonathan Pearce

Armour Geddon was a robot that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. Coming from St. Peter's School in Huntingdon, it lost in the first round to Onslaught.

It did not compete after Series 3, although team member Jonathan Freeman would later compete in the pilot episode of the 2016 revival with Wraith.

Its name is a pun on the word Armageddon.

DesignEdit

Armour Geddon in the arena

Armour Geddon was a boulder-shaped torque reaction axlebot (or a football, as the team stated), armed with a spiked weapon with a cutting wheel, much like Stinger. Its wheels were the most notable aspect, as they were very well-armoured, since they were coated in hexagonal and pentagonal welded steel plates. The wheels also had two modules controlling them, in essence making it two robots in one.

Armour Geddon met Onslaught in its first round battle of Heat I.

Armour Geddon is rolled into the Pit

Onslaught's weapon had no effect on Armour Geddon, but its arm got stuck on the arena wall. It managed to escape, but could not use its arm and drove very close to the pit, getting stuck. Matilda freed it but Onslaught pushed it and Armour Geddon rolled from the top-left CPZ straight into the pit.

Philippa Forrester: "You had me thinking "this robot's fantastic, it's never going to be immobilised. It's absolutely fantastic!" I didn't know it was a kamikaze robot though."
Tom Collins: "It was, because we had radio interference, we had virtually no control over the thing."
