      Information
      Cassius 2 is the successor robot to Rex Garrods robot Cassius that took part in Robot Wars Series 2. It was built in 1999 for Series 3 of Robot Wars where despite being the firm favourite, lost in the second round to Pussycat due to it reversing in the pit. Cassius 2 was like its predecessor only it had a wider flipper and the addition of a rear spike that was said to help Cassius jump out the pit, but couldn't use it properly on its one occasion. Cassius 2 is retired from combat but is often seen on display with Cassius 1 & 3, Chaos 2, Stinger & Steel Avenger at the Robot Rumble events and it is often considered a favourite amongst some robot wars fans.
