Vanquish official


Vanquish is a heavyweight robot from the UK built by Team Nebula which competed in the third season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It was a four-wheel driven heavyweight armed with a "Sewer Snake-style" lifting wedge.

Jack Tweedy of Team Nebula would return in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot with Ragnarok along with Tim Rackley, who competed with quarterfinalist, Monsoon in Discovery Season 3.

It didn't do well in its debut season, losing to two robots that it was designed to counter.

Vanquish gets split into two by Icewave.

Vanquish's first match in Season 3 of the BattleBots reboot was against Icewave, The match was fairly even to start as Icewave's hits were not causing much damage. However, as Icewave got its weapon up to speed, its hits became more significant with one hit tearing into one of the wheels and leaving Vanquish without drive on one side. Vanquish continued to try and attack but due to what was later revealed to be faulty welds in the chassis, it was torn almost cleanly in half with Icewave's last attack. The damage was too great for Vanquish to continue and it was counted out, giving Icewave the win by KO.

side getting the upper hand. Vanquish continued to lose googly eyes but that was about it as its wedge was otherwise just throwing sparks. Vanquish got Captain Shrederator in the corner and nearly under the pulverizer before Captain Shrederator escaped. Unfortunately for Vanquish, they took a big hit from their opponent and were sent flying, losing a wheel on impact. When they landed, Vanquish was unable to move and was counted out, giving Captain Shrederator the win by KO and 1 point towards team USA.
