Team Raptor's logo.

Team Raptor was one of BattleBots' most well-known teams. It was headed jointly by relatives Bob and Chuck Pitzer and assisted by Chris Harriman, who drove Carnage Raptor. The team won many battles during and after BattleBots, and the team still exists today, last fighting at the ABC reboot of Battlebots with the heavyweight Ghost Raptor (actually a rebuilt Tripulta Raptor) and making an appearance on the "Lab Rats" TV show to fight in a rumble. The team also entered Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors with Cyclone and Rippa Raptor. Chris Harriman also took control of and improved loanerbot called Tut Tut, making it very successful in several side events and making it one of 18 robots to never lose a fight. Team Raptor originally entered the US Robot Wars with Nemesis, which lost to TerMinal FreNzy.

Their best performance was with lightweights Alpha Raptor and Gamma Raptor in Season 1.0 and Season 3.0, where both reached and lost in the final. Their best non lightweight performance was with heavyweight Ghost Raptor, which reached the semi-finals of the ABC reboot.
