Puck was a superheavyweight robot built by Washington State University Engineering Corps which fought in Season 5.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots.

It was a large, three-wheeled robot built in the shape of a truncated triangle and armed with a flipping wedge. Puck was relatively unique in that it used omni-directional wheels which allowed it to strafe. Its only match was a loss by knockout to Super Nova.

In keeping with their theming, Puck was likely named after the character of the same name from William Shakespeare's comedy play A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The team behind Puck was comprised of students from the Washington State University Robotics Club. They also built Tybalt for Season 5.0, which failed to win in its only competition.

Puck vs. Super Nova

In its first battle, Puck faced Super Nova. Puck was able to punch a 1" hole in Super Nova's plywood armor, but its wheels were a weak point as Super Nova's spinning blade was able to damage them, disabling the robot. Super Nova won by knockout and advanced to next preliminary round, eliminating Puck from the competition.
