Arenas of DestructionEdit
In Arenas of Destruction Switchblade's weapon is an axe and it is armoured in polycarbonate. It can only self-right if it lands on its axe.
The main thing to do when fighting with Switchblade is to keep the front facing towards the opponent and to use the pickaxe to break off armour. Avoid flippers when necessary, as Switchblade can only self-right if it lands on its axe.
It is easy to push Switchblade around as it has 2-wheel drive only. However, avoid the pickaxe, as it is deadly to most armour. You can also flip it over for the win, as it can only self-right if it lands on its axe.
In Extreme Destruction Switchblade's shape is a domed wedge, it has a smaller axe and it has smaller wheels which are on the outside.
The same things apply as the Arenas of Destruction robot, except it has worse pushing power due to the wedge dome shape. Be careful when you fight against good pushers, as Switchblade can be easily manipulated to hazards.
It is easier to push around Switchblade due to the new body shape. Regardless, the same things apply, though flipping it is a waste of time, considering Switchblade can self-right unless its pickaxe breaks off.
