We will be following the latest guidance from the state of CT. Currently there are no capacity or distancing restrictions for an event like this.

Norwalk Havoc seeks to hold fun and exciting Robot Combat Events. Our goal is to continue to foster and grow this amazing community of hobbyists and elevate the sport of Robot Combat. All of our events are live-streamed on the internet and we seek to deliver production values on par with a live sporting event. Over the long term, our goal is to build an online following that will generate revenue to allow us to host more events and expand the sport.
Our events are grouped into annual seasons. Seasons last 1 year. Each season will consist of 6 to 4 open tournaments, and the top 4 winners of each of the tournaments will be invited back to fight in the finals event held in December of the calendar year. The tournaments are double-elimination style ensuring all competitors who enter to fight get to fight at least 2 matches.
See the full rules set here:
- All robots must have a weapon lock that prevents any spinning weapons from moving outside of the cage.
- All robots must have a way to turn off power without disassembling the robot.
- All robots must pass a radio failsafe test.
Spectators are allowed and welcome! All-day passes to watch the fights are $10.00. Robot combat is dangerous and there will be weapons and dangerous things around. We will ask you sign a release prior to entering the space.
