Team Hammertime were a team who competed in Seasons 3.0 to 5.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots as well as three World Championships on ABC and Discovery.

They were best known for their middleweight turned heavyweight robot SubZero, which was entered under Team XD's name from World Championship V onwards following the retirement of Jerry Clarkin in 2019.

Outside BattleBots[]

The team also fought in numerous RoboGames events with Bounty Hunter and the middleweight version of SubZero. Bounty Hunter finished third overall at RoboGames 2005 with its 4-2 record, and SubZero earned the same accolade two years later.
