Scar was a grey Y-shaped, invertible robot from Series 4 of Robot Wars. It was armoured with 3mm thick steel and equipped with three spinning discs, which could spin clockwise or counter-clockwise, each disc with three hardened steel cutting blades. Its low speed and unusual shape proved to be a hindrance in its opening match; it could not get its discs to make contact with the other robots. It survived its first match after Firestorm 2 flipped The Morgue, but had technical problems in between the rounds and was forced to withdraw. Scar did not have any other appearances on Robot Wars. This means that Scar is one of the few robots from Robot Wars never to lose a battle.
After Robot Wars began its 12-year hiatus, Scar found itself in the possession of John Findlay from Team Roaming Robots. Scar was later sold to Craig Danby of Team Danby, and then to a Glasgow based team who also owned Eric and Chimera. In 2013 it was sold again to Jamie McHarg from Team RogueTwo Robots and PP3D Robotics. As of September 2015, Scar is now in the possession of Dave Lawrie from Team Die Gracefully Robotics.
Robot History Edit
In Heat C of the Fourth Wars, newcomers Scar were drawn up against fellow newcomers The Morgue and the fifth seeds Firestorm 2. In the battle, Scar was immediately flipped by Firestorm 2, but was able to keep going, thanks to its ability to run either way up. Scar then attempted to attack The Morgue with its spinning blades, but couldn't get it into position. Firestorm 2 then came in and flipped Scar a couple more times, still not causing any damage or causing an issue. Firestorm 2 then made a run up and flipped The Morgue over. The Morgue was too close to the arena side wall to roll back onto its wheels, leaving it with no method of self-righting, The Morgue was deemed immobilised and attacked by the house robots, this put Scar through to the next round along with the seeded Firestorm 2 machine.
Scar was then due to fight the experienced Ming 2 in the second round of the heat, however, it suffered technical difficulties and was forced to forfeit its place to The Morgue, eliminating Scar from the competition.
