The Catapult is an obstacle, used as the first obstacle in the Wipeout Zone in Seasons 2 and 3. It was interchanged with the Aqua Launch and Dreadmill Launch respectively in these two seasons.

Contestants lie back in a chair at the end of a long arm, and on the last second of the countdown, it flings them through the air into the water below.

In Episode 3x04, white dust was launched with the contestants. In Episode 3x05, confetti was launched with the contestants. In Episode 3x17, colored balls were launched with the contestants.

It was replaced by the Bobsled Blastoff in Season 4's Winter Wipeout.
