- "This robot had better not get too hot under the collar, or there'll be- a Meltdown!"
- — Jonathan Pearce's in game commentary
Meltdown is a fictional competitor robot in the game Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction. It is a lightweight class robot with a low classic wedge body. Its weapon is a flamethrower and it is armoured in titanium. It cannot self-right and costs 8700 credits to buy.
Meltdown, like other flamethrower wielding robots is very good at damaging robots with Kevlar armour. It also has some of the best armour in the game, titanium, meaning that it can withstand significant damage. Avoid flippers, as Meltdown cannot self-right.
Meltdown is quite slow due to the 2 wheel drive and has no weapon on the rear, meaning that outmanoeuvring Meltdown and attacking the back is a good tactic that is easy to implement. The lack of power also means that it can be easily pushed into obstacles like the House Robots or other arena hazards.
