Bot Blast

Insectweight Combat Robot Event


Bot Blast uses modified SPARC (Standardized Procedures for the Advancement of Robotic Combat) rules for our annual insectweight event. The SPARC documents of Robot Construction Specifications, Tournament Procedures, Match Rules, and Judging Guidelines were created by current EOs to maintain consistency, while also allowing for flexibility and minor modifications between events.  Bot Blast is proud to be a participating SPARC event.

We appreciate creativity and innovative designs, but please avoid exploiting loopholes in the rules to gain unsportsmanlike competitive advantages. Bot Blast EO Jeremy Campbell will make all final decisions regarding a robot's eligibility. Our main modifications from the SPARC standards are that Bot Blast runs a modified double elimination format, no autonomous robots are allowed, exposed lipo batteries result in an immediate KO at the official's discretion, and we use the simplified judging criteria. Please read and understand all of the documents below before participating at Bot Blast.
