Extinguisher BBSeason4 2019

Extinguisher's Discovery Season 4 appearance.

Extinguisher is a heavyweight robot which competed in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It is a four-wheeled, red, trapezoid-shaped Swiss-army robot armed with a 15 lb hammer, based on a fireman's axe. Although the back looks more effective than the front, it was confirmed by the team that the butt of the axe is 3D printed, meaning it's for aesthetics. Its other two weapons are a launcher, and a vertical bar spinner. Extinguisher also had a siren inside the bot to please the crowd and further extend the theme its team brought.

Robot History

Discovery Season 4

Extinguisher's first fight was an untelevised was against two time rejected newcomer, Battlesaw. For this fight, Extinguisher went with a thick front wedge and its axe. This proved to be a good choice as Extinguisher was able to push Battlesaw where it wanted to, resulting in its opponent starting to smoke due to the pulley for its weapon loosening, then proceeded to drive it under the pulverizer to be hammered. Extinguisher wanted to use its axe, but the receiver for its weapon wasn't working, but Extinguisher was still able to win by KO.

Next for Extinguisher was a revamped The Four Horsemen. Extinguisher started off rather poorly as they missed with their weapon, which was also proving to be quite sluggish due a plate connected to the clutch that powers the weapon shrinking in the cooler temperature at the event. This undid all the fine tuning the team did prior to the fight. Extinguisher then took a hit from War but didn't suffer much damage. Extinguisher continued to move around the arena, occasionally firing its weapon but had very little success hitting The Four Horsemen apart from flipping Butter Cup over. Extinguisher then lost drive on one side as the outer shells for half the motors tied to the drive sytem shattered after shaking from the impacts and hitting the centers of the motors but Daisy had stopped moving completely. Extinguisher was now driving in circles until it finally stopped moving. However, as the countdown began, Extinguisher got going and managed to survive to a judges decision. The judges awarded a 2-1 split decision to The Four Horsemen.

Extinguisher also participated in a rumble with Team Unicorn's Rainbow and veteran Double Jeopardy. As the rumble got under way, Extinguisher missed with its weapon and instead took damage to its side from Rainbow's spinning bar. Extinguisher continued to fight but its weapon still didn't make contact, resulting in its drive taking severe damage. Extinguisher spent the rest of the rumble driving in circles having lost a drive chain earlier on. The judges awarded Rainbow a unanimous 3-0 decision.
