Robot Wars Wiki

"We're confident that Buzzter will prove a powerful and entertaining robot- he's got a sting in his tail!"
— The team introduce their robot

Buzzter was a heavyweight competitor designed with the intention of applying for the classic era of Robot Wars, though it is not specified for which series. Unfortunately, it is unknown whether the robot entered auditions or was ever completed.


Buzzter was an invertible, four-wheel drive robot designed to look like a wasp. The robot was black and yellow in design, much like Series 6 competitor W.A.S.P., and featured a hornet's face painted on the front, which would appear angry when seen upside-down.[1]

Team Hornet claimed that their robot would be "fire-proof" thanks to its sheet steel armour and design, though this was never proven to be legitimate. Buzzter featured unique weaponry in the form of a front-mounted hydraulic spear, which could protrude almost the length of the robot with the idea of piercing armour and internal components.[2] This spear was tungsten-tipped and would take approximately 5 seconds to lock back into position once fired. Alongside this, Buzzter had small spikes around its sides to prevent it getting stuck, as well as side skirts to fight against robots trying to flip it over. Despite this concern, it was still capable of driving either way up.[3]
