PacifieR was a heavyweight robot which qualified for Series 9 of Robot Wars, but ultimately withdrew due to a minor short circuit problem. The team were best known for building the second Dutch champion, PulverizeR.

PacifieR was a red, blue and black, two-wheel drive robot with a design bearing a close resemblance to that of PulverizeR. Instead of PulverizeR's flywheel, however, it was equipped with a large and powerful vertical hydraulic crusher as its main weapon, which also acted as a self-righting mechanism[1]. PacifieR was partially invertible, capable of driving on its back end, although its claw could be rendered ineffective when the robot was inverted, and it had to use its weapon to self-right when it was completely upside-down.

Robot History

Series 9

PacifieR was drawn into Heat 4, but after a minor problem with its circuitry, it had to withdraw from the battle, where it was replaced by Apex. Although PacifieR joined the reserve list and its circuit was quickly fixed, PacifieR never made it to the arena.

PacifieR appeared in the background in Heat 1, on a workbench near the testing arena, while Sabretooth was testing its weapon.

PacifieR never made a combat appearance outside of Robot Wars. However, for the 2018 season of BattleBots, aired on Discovery Channel and Science Channel, Team P.C.P. converted PacifieR into a new design, Petunia.

Trivia

  • At filming, Team P.C.P. were dressed as babies, in homage to the pacifier theme of the robot.
