Not to be confused with the heavyweight from the reboot

Orion was a heavyweight robot built by Christopher Hedberg and Jake Kueker in Team Pathfinder. It competed only in Season 3.0. Orion was a two-wheeled (the wheels where only used if the bot was flipped), invertible, wedge shaped robot that used a unique way of movement. It used a central ball (similar to a computer mouse) that gave it Omni-Directional movement in any direction. Orion was armed with side mounted spring loaded pick-axes mounted to "multi-positional side turrets."


Orion in the pits.

It likely had no active weapon, but this is uncertain. Orion did poorly in BattleBots, losing its only match to Tripulta Raptor by KO. Team Pathfinder would later register a Heavyweight thwackbot called Criminal Justice for the 2004 NPC Charity Open. However due to unknown reasons it pulled out.
