Rules Overview

The RMUT 2022 will include technical challenges for Standard, Engineer, Dart System and Hero. It consists of Standard Racing and Smart Firing, Engineer Mining, Dart Targeting and Hero Lob Shot.
In the "Standard Racing and Smart Firing", the Standard (newly added Balancing Standard for 2022 season) should race through complex terrains of the Battlefield and activate the Power Rune. The highest ring number and the completion time will affect the final scores.
In the "Engineer Mining", the Engineer should obtain minerals at the Resource Island and exchange them into gold coins at the designated point as fast as possible. The number of minerals obtained and the speed of exchanging will affect the final scores.
In the "Dart Targeting", the Dart System should launch Darts to hit the Outpost and the Base. The number of strikes and the strike time will all affect the final scores.
In the "Hero Lob Shot", the Hero should shoot the Base at the Sniper Point with 42mm projectiles.The number of strikes and the strike time will all affect the final scores.

Teams advance from the Regional Competitions will enter the Final Tournament.

Q1: What teams are suitable for the RMUT?

A1: The RMUT consists of several challenges. As it requires only one robot for each challenge, it is suitable for teams with less funding and manpower to focus on technological breakthroughs in a single direction. Teams should first register for the Regional Competition, pass the Technical Assessment to participate in the Regional Competition and finally compete for an entry to the Final Tournament.

Q2: How to obtain official information released by the RoboMaster Organizing Committee?

A2: The RoboMaster Organizing Committee will update important information on the official RoboMaster website and forum.
