Borris 5,0

Borris in the pits

Borris was a middleweight robot built by a school team from Minnesota (the team going by the name Creation Robotics) which competed in the final season of BattleBots. It was a flat four-wheeled robot with a chassis machined out of a single block of 6061 aluminum and armed with a spinning toothed drum. It performed decently in competition, winning one battle before losing to eventual quarterfinalist Wrath Jr.

Borris registered for the BattleBots-sanctioned NPC Charity Open in 2004, but it pulled out at the last second. However the team did enter with Hobbyweight Natasha, and Middleweight Z.I.P. both of which were highly successful.

Season 5.0

Borris' only season got off to a bad start, as BattleBots had forgotten to put them on the brackets. So, they ended up fighting Secret Weapon, who had their first opponent forfeit. This match was quick, as Secret Weapon drove over, into Borris' spinning drum, where it took damage and broke down. Secret Weapon then tapped out, only 39 seconds into the fight.

Borris then met up against Wrath Jr. However, the team was having transmitter issues and couldn't maneuver well enough to win, losing the battle on a 29-16 judge's decision.
