Robot statistics correct as of its most recent competition
Pursuit is a Heavyweight wedged rambot from Team Mongoose, and is very similar in design to Team Targeted's Tank. Throughout its life, it has retained broadly the same design features: a low six-wheel-drive box, angular chassis sides, a hinged wedge or wedges on the front, and a plow on the rear. The plow was initially interchangeable with a set of fixed spikes, before the spikes were built into the outside edges of the plow, and eventually removed altogether.
It made its debut in the Crazy Bots: Blazing Ruin tournament, and took the #1 seed during the season en route to the finals, where it fell to Team Zlayerz' spinner, Spectrum of Eternity. It then returned in the follow-up tournament, Crazy Bots: New Breed City, where it defeated Thunderball in the playoffs, but fell in the semi-finals to Redemption Denied in a close rematch from the main season, where Pursuit had taken the victory and snapped the flipper's undefeated streak.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pursuit was originally designed as a Middleweight, before the stat system was changed following ARC Armageddon.
- The initial Heavyweight design of Pursuit was based on a rendition of the bot made in Robot Arena 2, which itself was based on the original Middleweight design.
- The colour scheme, along with the red and blue LED strips, was based on that of a US police car. The blue LED strip is on the underside of the machine, and helps signify which way up the robot is.
