The Locksmith was a superheavyweight robot built by team 5 Thieves and a Locksmith which competed in Season 4.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots.

The Locksmith was a robot armed with a spinning triangular cage. The cage included 40lbs steel blades with 5lbs locks at the tips which is what helped give it its name. The tip of the locks were said to be able to get up to 600mph, although this was only said by the team and is unverified. Because of these statistics, The Locksmith was feared going into Season 4.0. In addition to its weapon, the team also included electromagnets that would hold its 1/8" steel frame to the floor with 940lbs of force.[1] This design feature would later become much more common in robot combat. Despite all these design features, it lost its first and only match.

Robot History[]

Season 4.0[]

The Locksmith's only opponent was Bucky the Beaverbot. The fight had to be postponed twice (by the Locksmith team), before it officially happened. When it did, Bucky the Beaverbot fearlessly rammed into its spinning opponent, and The Locksmith stopped moving. Bucky the Beaverbot turned around and ground up The Locksmith with its disk as it was counted out.
