Wallop was a Beetleweight robot built by Team Nightmare that competed at the 2004 NPC Charity Open. It was a Black, four wheeled robot held together with zip-ties, armed with a servo driven Titanium lifting plow. Wallop's wheels were magnetic in order to get an advantage on arenas with steel floors, and they were driven by four B62 gear motors. For power it used 22.2 Volts worth of LiPo's.
Wallop did well in BattleBots reaching the semifinals before losing to the eventual champion: One Fierce Upper-Cut. Wallop also competed in ROBOLympics 2004 where it came in second place, and after being completely rebuilt, took part in the 2004 RFL Nationals which it won. It then took part in numerous other smaller events to mixed results before finally being retired in 2011.
