“Take on” instead of “rape of”?

Why do you think it's a typo?...rape seems to fit, as in rape is often used...be it not really very politically correct as a description of when you utterly destroy something.

" I raped all their asses and won first prize" - as a poor example. It follows if you are going around killing all the robots...the word "rape" could be used as a descriptor.
