TEAM HURTZ poster by sgtjack2016 TEAM HURTZ poster by sgtjack2016
These are the 3 heavyweight axe/hammer robots that were bult by Team Hurtz. Killerhurtz, (the long one with the pickaxe) Terrorhurtz (the bulky one with the double-headed axe) and beta. (the one with the black hammer head)

Killerhurtz is the very first of the 3 to be built and competed in Robot Wars from series 2 to series 4, plus it also competed in Battlebots from Long Beach '99 to Comedy-Central season 4.

Terrorhurtz is Killerhurtz' Robot Wars predecessor and competed from Series 5 onward. Fun Fact: John Reid applied for the first season of the ABC reboot of Battlebots with Terrorhurtz, but Terrorhurtz was turned down and so John Reid decided to apply beta to compete instead and he was successful.

beta is Killerhurtz' Battlebots predecessor and was supposed to compete in season 5 of the Comedy-Central series againt Bender, but because of circumstances that you can find on this website beta | Battlebots Wiki | Fandom powered by Wikia that ment beta had to forfeit and they tried to fix the problem for season 6, but the series was cancelled before such a thing could happen. And while they successfully applied for the first season of the ABC series and were scheduled to fight against the eventual runner-up of the season, Tombstone in the first round, they were unable to compete because a 25 kg bag of parts were lost at an airport and they were replaced by Counter Revolution, the bag of parts were eventually found at a hanger in Los Angeles, 8 weeks after filming had ended. But for season 2 they got beta up and running again and were able to compete, beta was very successful as well, they reached the quarter-finals after defeating Lucky, Overhaul and Nightmare. (a robot that Killerhurtz went up against in its second battle in the Long Beach '99 event.) In the quarter-finals, beta went up against the eventual champion of the season and the robot that beat was supposed to fight against last season, Tombstone. Unfortunately, beta lost by a unanimous decision because despite starting strong by landing 2 big hits, Tombstone eventually managed to break the hammer off by tearing of a hammer support.
