Wipeout Wiki

The Piston Punch is a Wipeout Zone obstacle that premiered in the second season. It is comprised of three pistons that punch out into the walkway. Contestants must cross the walkway without being punched by the pistons into the water. This obstacle is based mostly on quick stepping and timing.

In some episodes, the pistons sprayed water at the contestants.

This obstacle appears in Wipeout: The Game, except that the pistons are red instead of gray. It also has red spinning blades that spin slowly or quickly to fling the contestants into the water called the Blades of Fury.
