The "Sweeper" is an obstacle in Wipeout used in the second round. The 12 survivors of the Qualifier have to get on some platforms and have to jump the crane passes over them. The 6 that more will resist to the next round and the more stamina you will get $1,000 bonus. In many episodes usually put many accesories to make it more difficult. This round was present in the first season and the second season, was retired in seasons 3, 4, 5, and 6 but returns in season 7. Edit
In season 7, The Sweeper returns with a classic modified look. The last man or woman standing will earn $500 instead of $1,000.
