Enforcer from Season 2.0.

Enforcer was a lightweight robot that competed in Season 2.0 of BattleBots. Built by Al Kindle, it was a wedged robot armed with a circular saw on an electrically-powered arm which could double as a lifter. It both won and lost a battle in its one season. Enforcer actually began competing almost five years before this, making its first appearance at the 1996 Robot Wars event with a similar weapon and four-wheel drive. Enforcer competed in the 30-pound sportsman class for years, until it was retired in early 2012.

Al Kindle made a return to BattleBots sixteen years later with a new robot, Blacksmith.

Robot History

Season 2.0


Das Bot lifts Enforcer.

Enforcer first fought Thump, winning a close 23-22 decision. Then it went up against Das Bot in the second round. Das Bot charged across the arena, getting under Enforcer and pushing it into one of the hellraisers. Enforcer attempted to push Das Bot back, but eventually the two robots separated and Das Bot charged again, lifted Enforcer and pushed it into the wall. Enforcer stopped moving and began to be counted out, but miraculously began moving again with seconds left in the countdown. Both robots attempted to maneuver each other into the hazards while into the center of the arena, and Das Bot slammed Enforcer once more into the spike strip before time expired. A 32-13 decision eliminated Enforcer from the tournament.

Enforcer returned for the consolation rumble and did well, overturning Widowmaker, but it eventually lost out to Serial Box Killer and Sublime II.
