Thius is a very rough draft of an idea for the combat bot. Rather than having them fire from arm cannons, a firing mechanism in the front (i.e. the mouth) makes much more sense.
Also i would like to raise the discussion of what the bots use to attack as well, personally a large supply of cannonballs being fired from a bot seems kind of hokey to me.
I would like to propose a few other forms of projectile attack for these bots.
1. flaming balls, that explode on contact. This would be a form of gas soaked projectile that's set on fire when it's fired.
2. A flamethrower. I kid you not, this would make a good deal of sense for an outside patrolling bot. I had the idea of taking a cherub face (the kind you see spitting water in fountains), putting it on a bot body, and having it spray the fire from it's mouth as it runs after you.
3. Arrows or small spears, these could be held in a much larger quantity in a bot than cannonballs, and could fire much faster than a normal human would be able to shoot them.
