Not to be confused with the heavyweight robot, Photon Storm.

Storm was a middleweight robot which competed at BattleBots IQ in 2007 and 2008.

It was a four-wheel drive robot whose primary weapon was a spinning shell which was sloped on all sides. In its debut event, this was roughly octagonally-shaped, but was rounded for the 2008 competition and featured two large teeth on either side. Storm's only known fight in 2007 was a loss to Pneumagic, where the shell spinner was flipped over and unable to self-right. It is known to have won at least one battle in 2008, defeating Matador, but

Storm is known to have taken on Pneumagic during the event.[1] Storm got up to speed and looked to attack, but rode up the front of Pneumagic and retreated, colliding with the arena wall. Storm's shell ground to a halt as Pneumagic pushed it across the arena, with the attack culminating in Pneumagic flipping Storm over. Unable to right itself, Storm lost by knockout.

Storm vs. Matador

Storm vs Matador BBIQ 2008

Storm attacks Matador early on.

Storm also faced Matador at an unconfirmed stage of the bracket.[2] Storm was able to spin up and got several glancing hits in as Matador swapped between leading with its weapon and its wedge. As Matador drove away, however, it became caught on the arena and could no longer move. It was therefore declared immobile and Storm took the win.

Storm vs. Mighty Knight

Another of Storm's opponents in the 2008 competition was Mighty Knight, built by Team Titanium Knights.[3] Storm's shell spinner was negated for much of this fight as Mighty Knight continuously drove underneath and pushed it around the arena. Storm's shell stopped spinning, and soon after, the robot lost all drive too. Storm was declared immobile and Mighty Knight picked up the win.
