Robot Wars Wiki

Vertex was a heavyweight robot designed with the intention of applying for a later series of the classic era of Robot Wars. It is unknown exactly which series the team intended to enter, or whether the robot was actually ever finished.


Vertex was a rounded box shaped robot with a front-mounted twin-tooth vertical spinner, described as a flywheel on the Robot Wars website.[1] Its low profile, weaponry and chassis shape give the robot a strong resemblance to Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors competitor Manta, though Vertex lacks the front wedges that feed into the American robot's spinning weapon. The chamfered rear end would allow Vertex to get underneath robots when unable to face opposition with its flywheel.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of information available, little else is known about the robot.[2]
