Trivia: Hazardous Contraption was the only Juggler in BBEANS 4.

Hazardous Contraption was a Middleweight juggler built by Naryar for BBEANS 4. Naryar also competed in BBEANS 5 with PitA 8 and in BBEANS6 with Terrible Sight. Also his first real tournament entry. Naryar is ranked 6th in BBEANS Standings.

It had the best wedges of all BBEANS4, and they could get under almost any bot at this time.

HazCon (as it was called for short) wasn't a favorite at the start of the tourney, but was referred to as "as good as the original" Neglected Waterbug first by Clickbeetle himself, that put it into his 5 possible winners, and then gained respect from the others after several quick victories.

It destroyed the winner's bracket before hitting a speedbump in Round 4 against the runner-up Enfilad3. Because of the AI's driving, HazCon's sides were exposed, and Enfilad3 took the advantage and won 2-1.

HazCon then went through the loser's bracket and took it's revenge on Enfilad3 5-1 over 2 matches (2-1 and 3-0) to win BBEANS4.

Hazardous Contraption was the first BBEANS winner to ever come out of the Loser's Bracket.

Though it was Naryar's best MW when it was built, it isn't any more (while still being a good bot in Naryar's standings) since a long time, mainly because of outdated wedges, and it has been destroyed many times by newer gut-rippers and other bots.

It is featured in NAR AI as well. While Hazcon is outdated, it is sometimes able to beat a few of the better NAR AI MWs. Naryar doesn't want to rebuild his juggler because he considers Hazcon to be simply too awesome to rebuild, notably claiming its 'epic ninja skills' after G.K. made a video of it in the test garage here. Despite this, Naryar presented a rebuild of it in April 2010.

Also the basis for Infernal Contraption, a heavyweight version of it.
