Widowmaker was a lightweight robot which competed in Seasons 2.0 and 5.0 of BattleBots. It was originally inspired by Nightmare, but the builder didn't want it to look like a copy, so he added a front wedge and spinning bar to the design to make it look different from Nightmare. Widowmaker returned for Season 5.0 as Widowmaker 2, now completely rebuilt from the ground up as a wedged robot armed with an angled spinning disc. It performed decently in competition, reaching the round of 64 in the final season.
Widowmaker 2 still competes today in an upgraded state under the name Guillotine.
Season 2.0EditWidowmaker's first opponent was Doublecross. Widowmaker charged towards Doublecross, which spun its blade, but backed up and hit the wall. Widowmaker approached Doublecross and got its spinning bar into the side, smashing the armor and destroying the battery, spilling battery acid all over the arena. Widowmaker backed up to get its weapon going again and smashed it back into the now disabled Doublecross. After several hits on Doublecross, the match was over and Widowmaker won by KO.
Widowmaker's next opponent was Mouser Mecha-Catbot. Widowmaker spun its weapon and moved toward Mouser Mecha-Catbot. Mouser pushed Widowmaker back and both robots moved away from each other. Mouser Mecha-Catbot came at Widowmaker with his pneumatic tail, slamming it into the floor. Mouser turned around and got its flipper under Widowmaker and tried to flip it. Widowmaker then backed up and Mouser tried to flip Widowmaker again. Mouser then got hung up on the hellraisers for a moment, then the bots proceeded to start pushing each other around. Widowmaker's spinning bar slowed down and Mouser got underneath Widowmaker and led it to the killsaws. The match ended in a pushing match and Mouser Mecha-Catbot won on a 26-19 judge's decision. This meant that Widowmaker was eliminated from the tournament.
Widowmaker wasn't finished, however, as it participated the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. In the rumble, Widowmaker was overturned by Enforcer and lost out to Sublime II and Serial Box Killer.
