Secret Weapon was a Middleweight robot built by Eric Klauser of Team Secret Weapon that competed in the final LTRC event. It was a four-wheeled, invertable, red and black, parallelogram-shaped weaponless robot that relied on its wedge to push opponents around.

Unfortunately Secret Weapon had a history of severe reliability issues going into RCG-305, and as a result Secret Weapon did poorly in competition, only managing one win against a heavily damaged opponent, and olsing its other two matches convincingly.

Robot HistoryEdit

RCG-305Edit

Secret Weapon rams Jouster

Secret Weapon pops The Jouster.

Secret Weapon's first match in RCG-305 was against RCG-304 Middleweight Runner-up The Jouster, this match started with both robots charging at each other. Secret Weapon got the better of the exchange, popping The Jouster onto two wheels, however The Jouster careened off into the wall, turned around, and slammed Secret Weapon into the wall.

By this point it became clear that Secret Weapon was having drive issues as it was barely moving, The Jouster then backed off, and slammed Secret Weapon into the corner. After a few more slams Secret Weapon stopped moving altogether, and was counted out.

This meant that Secret Weapon was now in the loser's bracket where it faced yet another RCG veteran in Jersey Devil. Jersey Devil was badly damaged by Hworf in it's previous fight and Secret Weapon took advantage of this, and eventually Jersy Devil stopped moving, getting Secret Weapon its first ever combat victory. This also put Secret Weapon in the Semi-Finals where it faced Catastrophic. It lost this match on a judges decision, and was eliminated from the competition.

Outside the Robot Club & GrilleEdit

Secret Weapon mainly competed in Battlebots, it was first built for Season 5.0 of Battlebots, it won its first match by forfeit before falling in the next preliminary round. It then returned for the 2005 Battlebots Rochester R3 event whereyet again it won a match by forfeit but fell early on after losing its two other battles. After this Secret Weapon, and Eric Klauser retired from Robot Combat.

TriviaEdit
