"Since we didn't enter Series 4 (we were going to use the same robot as series 3), we decided it was time for another change. This time we kept most of the chassis (but re-shaped it into a wedge), got rid of the skirt at the rear of the robot, created new electronics, and went from electric-powered weaponry to pneumatic."

Haardervark was a robot that failed to qualify for Series 5 and 6 of Robot Wars. It was a thin-fronted box-wedge design with interchangeable weaponry. This consisted of a choice between either a pneumatic flipping arm, an electric-driven circular saw (exactly the same type as the diamond-edged Chop Saw wielded by Dead Metal) mounted on a pneumatic moveable arm, and hardened steel lifting forks. It also had a crumple zone to prevent crushers from crushing it and maintained the artwork on the outer shell that its Series 3 predecessor did. It is currently unknown how Haardervark failed to qualify.

The team previously entered Series 2 and 3 with the much more successful Haardvark machine.
