When the robots become sentient do you think they will appreciate that we made them fight? Or are we just screwed? Whatever the case, let's enjoy tonight episode of BattleBots, on your TV NOW, over at Discovery. And tune in for Adam Savage & Savage Builds right after BattleBot! ... See MoreSee Less
Last night on the Discovery Channel, 2 one hour segments came on at 6:00 and 7:00 PM. My DirecTv schedule showed them as 1st time broadcasts, but I'm pretty sure I'd seen some of the fights before. Does anybody know what these episodes are? The regularly scheduled new fights came on at 8:00 PM.
Yes it was sad seeing Tombstone go down! But when they started giving him the 10 second count out?? There was less than 10 seconds on the clock! When he said 7, the clock showed 6 seconds left!! I feel Tombstone & we the fans were robbed of the Judges decision??
Rotator has steadily improved each season, then it goes and burns down the mighty Tombstone! What a great night for Victor Soto and company!
The tombstone fight was the best fight of all time. Even the previous seasons. The amount of destruction in such a short time. Geez. And Ray as always is a good sport. Vic was pretty excited. I don't think a simple wedge of normal ar500 will have that same result. The double slant and titanium made rotator a superior chess piece for that instance. Also if tombstone didn't come down from 10+ feet on its weapon and knock the weight off. No guarantee rotator would win in the exact same instance again. Tombstone is just that scary. Theres no better simplistic design in my opinion.
Robots would have to have feelings, in order to care one way or another in the first place. That means there would be sympathetic robots, and evil robots, and it would shape up into a great 80's movie with Arnold.
Tombstone is hands down my favorite bot. Ray always puts on a great show with loads of destruction and chaos. I always get nervous whenever Ray and Tombstone are on screen, as I'm always hoping they emerge victorious every fight. Realistically, that won't always happen of course, with tonight's episode being a perfect example. Normally when I see Tombstone lose (like it did to Bombshell last season), It frustrates and angers me. Tonight's loss though, was something entirely different. It was an absolute slugfest, and Victor and Rotator absolutely did not fear the reaper. I was disappointed to see my favorite bot lose this fight of course, but damn, if it wasn't one of the best Tombstone fights yet. Probably the only time I wasn't completely upset by Tombstone's loss. It was a fantastic fight, and that double slanted wedge design on Rotator did a fantastic job at beating Ray. All that said, I expect to see Ray and Tombstone wrec face from this point onward. Can't wait to see how the rest of this season goes !
Amazing job Rotator!!!
It was smart for Hal to realize that he couldn't use his primary weapon to lift lockjaw, and instead used his primary weapon to hit him like a hammer! Last year I said this same thing, and the main response back was that duck didnt use his primary weapon, this year he made sure to use his PRIMARY WEAPON, and yet he still loses? The worse damage lockjaw did to duck was some fucking paint chipping. Whereas, duck made lockjaw smoke, loose the traction in 2 wheels and stopped his primary weapon. Duck was robbed, for a second time, by the judges. The end.
What great fights tonight. Was hopeful that duck would win but still. Awesome episode
Currently enjoying the show now
Discovery channel is down at my house on DirecTV!!! I'm dying here!! And it the only channel not working!! 😡😠😭😭
Al Kindle was a poor sport tonight and didn’t even bother to shake Jamison Go’s hand. He took a lot more damage and the judges made the correct decision. If he makes top 16, I hope he loses again.
I believe the dig as much as we do if not more
Very few of those robots have any on board intelligence. All radio controlled.
It’s so awesome watching extra commercials instead of an extra fight!🤬
poor officiating...or is it rigged....just about to check out...to many other options. BTW Blacksmith was also robbed.
Was I the only one grinning while tombstone burned?
Time for new judges! Duck and Blacksmith won those fights tonight hands down!
discovery was back on, for the replay at midnight... lol
Lockjaw over duck...really? These judges need to be changed. They just have watched a different match than i saw.
Holy hell..these fights were incredible tonight !!
I hope Quantum is gonna eat the croc alive.
I feel like the world has turned upside down here. Rotator overpowered Tombstone, Sawblaze played the worst game of their career but still won the judges decision because reasons, and the only 3-0 bot right now is Death Roll.
BURN BABY BURN! Be careful what you ask for! One of my favorite results ever in BattleBots!
The battlebots judges need to get their eyes checked. Two bad calls in a row.
Faruq will be live tweeting during tonight's episode (both East and West Coast feeds)! Please follow @Faruqadelphia on Twitter and join in on the live #BattleBots tweets. Let's get #BattleBots trending BotFans! ... See MoreSee Less
Faruq is awesome. He has one of the best announcement voices. I wanna know who writes all his bot puns. You guys are going to run out sooner or later using different ones every single fight haha.
Friday nights.... 2 hours of Battlebots, sushi and fireball. My favorite night of the week!
one of the best announcers of all time
That tantrum was out of control! 🤣
You go Faruq🥰
Duck and Blacksmith should have won their fights, imo.
Ladies and Gentlemen! Are you ready, It’s Tooooooooooooooombstone time!
this guy is so irritating I wish they would replace him.
The comment you made about President Abraham LLincoln was a very disturbing and nasty thing to have stated on a wonderful show. You should issue and apologize
It's a joke. The judges suck and Faruk is boring
I don’t put up with this crap I fast forward!
Faruq is the best!
Y'all had me feeling like the last day of school. The time went by so slow. It wasn't even 'Tic Toc' It was like reading all the Encyclopedias my Dad bought!! 😪🤕
Faruq has some great and terrible one-liners.
Faruq é um show a parte.
Cant stand the cringey crap they make him read. Worst part of an otherwise amazing show.
FARUQ! My man!
"Aaaaaand in the red squaaaarrrre...!" He has many clever ways he announces the bots for battle
Plenty of time during the 100 minutes of talk and commercials
Its shitty announcer time!!! 🤮
Question! Who make those things he says. Some are quite funny
Faruq 2020. Think of the press conferences......😂😂😂
Best call man in the BIZ!!
Tombstone thinks Rotator should never have won the 2018 Most Destructive Robot award. What do you think? Find out who really is the Most Destructive on tonight's episode of BattleBots Fight Night - 8pm on Discovery. And tune in for Adam Savage and Savage Builds right after BattleBots! ... See MoreSee Less
Ray really isn't a bad guy, he just loves playing the part of the "villian" on TV but his fellow builders really like him and he is always a great sport (if you saw, after the fight with rotator, they shook hands and hugged one another and were congratulating one another on a great match
What an amazing fight. This whole card was great! I think Ray was happy there was a great fight, so much energy (both in and out of the battle box). Congrats to the winner. I'm looking forward to more Carnage, fire, and destruction.
if it makes tombstone feel better they win my personal award for bot I am LEAST excited about watching EVERY year.
When you spit to the sky and then falls in your eye... Sure tombstone is an amazing bot, but that attitude, those post match comments. I’m glad it was a K.O. win.
In my opinion, the show needs to choose. Either, show the awards being given out and reference them in following seasons. Or don't.
Very nice win Team Rotator!! What a great match! You guys served up some humble pie with a big feather under your cap....2 thumbs up!
tombstone needs to leave the big hammer blade at home....he lost the fight because of it....all that kinetic energy coming to a sudden stop destroyed his own bot ....he needs to stick to the sharp blades and use that energy to keep cutting deep into the other bots without sending himself flying
So rotator wins “most destructive bot” by by sheer luck having a blade that was the right height to slice through a tinfoil thin skin and break apart a tiny combustion motor. My prediction? Rotator won’t be taking home that award this year because he’ll be leaving the arena in a dustpan.
don’t want to spoil the outcome. i’ll just say H🔥LL of a fight!!! thank you both combatants! 🥊🥊
I love when Ray starts slapping the battle box glass when he’s happy!
Hope rotator wins just to take down that Ray once
Rotator is the most destructive! And for Tombstone, you need to give Rotator credit instead of being an assclown and saying “Tombstone beat Tombstone” “We only lose if we beat ourselves” bs that wedge is indestructible and because of Rotator’s wedge you broke, caught fire and fried. Most Destructive bot I’ve seen the last 2 seasons is Rotator and the way Tombstone dude acts maybe he should win a new award for poor sport.
What has a deadly blade and a self-guided mini tank to enter the arena? Tombstone.
Way to go ROTATOR!!!!! 🥳

What rewards are these? They’ve never been shown on the tv show.
Honestly after thinking about this fight more, Rotator could have a chance if it's wedge holds up and Tombstone doesn't. It's just weapon on weapon Tombstone will come out on top.
Ray actually requested that match? Hope he doesn't regret it.
Omg I didnt even know this still airs
My vote would have went to Icewave. Both these bots are great, but I don’t remember either of them slicing not one but two bots in half last year.
Oh, this is gonna be fun!
This will be an EPIC battle!!
With the Desperado Tournament looming, the entire field of vicious robots tighten the screws to guarantee their spot in the Top 16. Quantum and Death Roll compare tooth to tail ratios, Lock-Jaw goes Duck hunting, SawBlaze and Blacksmith fight fire with fire, and in the Main Event, Tombstone and Rotator look to settle a year-long feud. Don't miss BattleBots Fight Night, tomorrow night (Friday) at 8pm (ET) on Discovery (check your local listings for the exact time in your area). ... See MoreSee Less
The main fight between Tombstone & Rotator was amazing. I would have never called that result. Loved it. Plus I have a new crush! Hello Mr Bombshell 😁
I'm happy to see Tantrum and Shellshock at last!
This is our Favorite Show of the Whole week 🤗 has on the edge of our seat 😍😎
Thoughts on the fights. On the main event, I thought that Tombstone was probably in trouble with the configuration Rotator brought. Tombstone's hope was attacking the sides which Rotator did a great job of avoiding. Both bots should be heading for the round of 16. I'm not really sold on the judge's decision with the Sawblaze and Blacksmith fight. Not really sure if the new weapon for Sawblaze is going to pan out for the rest of the fights. It really weighed the bot down to where its movement was pretty sloppy. Duck and Lock Jaw was a good fight, but I agree with Duck's owner, he can't let fights go to the judges. Duck just doesn't do enough damage to win a judge's decision. Railgun Max is an interesting bot, but hopefully they figure out their battery issues. Cobalt should be headed to the round of 16. Quantum while an interesting design, I just don't think it works against most bots.
Excited to see more out of Cobalt!
Curious question, is there a reason why the rookie robot BattleSaw from Wichita, KS has not been shown yet in any of the fights? Or have I missed them in a previous week? I would love to see them 🙂
Tombstone AND Cobalt in the same episode? What is this, Christmas?
Wow, this is a hot fight card here! Rotator is good this year, but I think it's going to have a bad time with Tombstone! My winner predictions are: Ribbot, SawBlaze, Lockjaw, Tantrum, Cobalt, Railgun, and of course Tombstone!
Everyone saying well it was fun knowing you rotator. I literally said rotator can beat tombstone easily if he uses the wedge part and rams into him. So now all i have to say is Hah uhahhh uhhhahhhh
This is my relief from seeing what the Republicans are doing to our Government
Be good If Warhead would come back,.. that bot was a real work of Art I wonder what ever happened to them, they had some great fights in the past, but now i say tombstone gonna win this one As that bot can sure shred most of them , but i thought tomstone was fighting biteforce? when are they getting Matched up again? Either way gonna be a great show, i'm not gonna miss it, i'm gonna be watching on friday.
Can't wait, what a fight card. Cobalt and bombshell- going with my season almost favorite cobalt.
I think quantum and death roll make more sense as the main event. Don't see how tombstone will lose unless there's an act of god
Tombstone is going to dig a small grave for rotator. It will be great!
So tired of Duck. A metal box with no weapon. Just a goal of outlasting other bots. Nothing impressive. Literally, the ULTIMATE SLACKER bot. Just hang out to win.
The Duck! Vendici Mia tour continues. The Quack Attack Leads the Pack!
Bronco is my favorite bot, but man was I disappointed last week 🙁
correct me is I am wrong but this is the first time seeing railgun and the shellshock right
My daughter has requested a battlebots birthday for her 8th. She's also requested tag team matches. Y'all get on that 😉
Top 16 going into this episode: 1. Tombstone 2. Bite Force 3. Hypershock 4. Hydra 5. Gigabyte 6. Duck 7. Whiplash 8. Texas Twister 9. Scorpios 10. Witch Doctor 11. Uppercut 12. Cobalt 13. Monsoon 14. Railgun Max 15. Black Dragon 16. Yeti I was a little conflicted as to whether I should include Yeti since they were having a lot more trouble finishing their fight with Free Shipping than I expected, but then I remembered how well they did against Bite Force this year and decided to give them the edge over Lockjaw
Finally get to see Tantrum!
Tombstone vs duck should of been the very 1st fight on the very 1st day
Anyone know of deepsix? Was shown on an earlier episode i. The test box and it destroyed itself...was wondering if they ever got it fixed and put back in the lineup..
Not as good as last weeks card, but still looks pretty solid. That Lockjaw/Duck matchup looks very good.
Both Bots have won The Most Destructive Robot Award🥇… So let's see them take on each other. Don't miss the mayhem of this main event. #BattleBots Fight Night: Tomorrow night (Friday) at 8pm on Discovery ... See MoreSee Less
Rip rotator nice knowing ya
Now that's a main event! I'm going for Tombstone.
Just checkt the tv guide on both channels, on both days , i have the biggest tv member ship, with the most channels, And even then of course NOT in the netherlands on tv.. So disapointed! While i realy love this show, from the start in the '90!! Can someone help me please? Asking for the uncountable time again.., unfortainly they not read the comments, just annoucing something for bigger watch number, but not realy helping anyone who want to see this..
Same as with the Tombstone/Sawblaze fight, Rotator has the potential to win this with their modular design that can be tailored to suit their opponent BUT all it takes is Tombstone catching the right spot and it's game over. It could go either way 👍
Good luck Rotator!!!!this will be a good match.
Hope Chris and Kenny will have there hard hats on for all the shrapnel that will be flying out of the arena when tombstone dismantles rotator.
I hope Rotator has a real big hunk of steel to replace a spinner with.
Win Stoney! My 3.5 year old nephew would love to see you win!
I can't wait for this fight! This will be a less than 1 minute deal. One of them is going down hard and it may be both and which ever gets counted out first.
Just ordered a tombstone t shirt for my son's birthday, hope it gets here by Wednesday 😁
Oh this will be a good fight!! I pick Rotator for the win!
I think Tombstone will show Rotator the better bar in action.
Is it just me or has tombstone biteforce and whiplash been in every main event so far 🤔
The tombstone show. 3rd main event in 7 weeks. Yawn.
Now that Cobalt has gone vertical, Rotator was the next best option.
This should be interesting. Now remember we underestimated Rotator before let's not do it again and give him a fare shake.
Well, I guess tombstone's battery could always die after start up
Um.. we are long overdue for biteforce and tombstone.. settle this nice and early like..
Look at all these people forgetting Rotator destroyed Icewave with a configuration designed specifically for Tombstone...
I think one will come down to driving
Now THIS has “match of the year” written all over it.
Someone might end up with the most destroyed award as well 🥇
The only hope for rotator is that the titanium wedge holds up otherwise the greatest bot has secured a place in top 16
Rotator is about to have a very bad day.
Tombstone for the knockout less than 1:30. If that long. 😀😀
Don't mess with Texas, or robots that have their axes backwards. Let them mess with each other. BattleBots is on Science Channel now on the east coast and other regions (check your local listings) #BattleBots. ... See MoreSee Less
Gotta love the mini drone with the flag so cute 😂
love watching battlebots we now seeing the 2018 shows here now on fridays.
Watching again had to cheer for Witch Doctor
I wish there wasn’t so much filler in the shows
You guys I really hope the opportunity wasn't passed up and texas twister fights bronco
Texas Twister was more effective upside down. 😂
I love watching Battlebots I can't wait for Friday night's robot beat down
This was actually a decent fight for a science channel exclusive fight
Let the shrapnel fly!
Best Fight EVER!!
Texas will win
Texas will win
Since, 🤔 Humans that fight need 'Vaseline, Bandaids🤕 and Alcohol for injuries' 🤧what do the 🤖s need? 👩🏼🏭👨🔧
that had to hurt
Way to go Texas twister
More dismemberments, please
Axe backwards 😂
WHO HAS SCIENCE CHANNEL THOUGH?!
It's just not complete without Duck!. Bring back the Quack Attack!
Who should texas twister fight next?
Y u guys no post Shatter vs Wan Hoo
I hope Axe Backwards makes a much better showing, this time around.
Seen it Friday, watched again Wednesday, possibly best episode yet this season.
What a different type of sneak peek. I wonder why? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
There been a lot of good fights this year
“Give him the wheels” Famous last words
Do they sell tickets to see this live?? Where do they take place. My son wants to go sooo bad
Axe-backwards is a unique design, and i hope it does well for that reason. But other drums are more tried and true like Yeti and Minotaur
Who were last weeks bonus fight between
😎ooo this is going be good🖒
I really want to see Axe Backwards succeed, to show that full-body drums are viable.
Never seen these 2 before
Why are Axe Backwards wheels covered in tape?
Kurt is a gd gem, Hes battlebots Justin Roiland
GLADIATOR MECHS... GLADIATOR MECHS... that exiting new game show... GLADIATOR MECHS. www.youtube.com/channel/UCn5zGSRSO-dIGPra2XRt7kA?view_as=public
Two POS's is a bonus fight?
Hopefully axe backwards is working
Hats off to Tormach Inc. for sponsoring BattleBots 2019. Please watch this video to witness the incredible amount of work that Tormach performed for all the robot fighting teams. We simply could not do BattleBots without sponsors like Tormach. ... See MoreSee Less
“Increadible” or incredible. Either way, good stuff. Thanks.
Thank you Tormach!
Thanks for making Duck! a powerhouse.
This is really interesting. I'd like to see a "How It's Made" version of Battlebots, even though there isn't one way to make a battlebot.
Tried to become a battlebots supporter- but got this error message
Its Twombstone finally! LOL
There's a Bradley Warren Hanstad appearance
One of the best of the night! There were 3 amazing wins that night
That was such an awesome battle!
Best of the night
That was so awesome fight! The best episode of this season so far 😍
Easily a top 3 battle I mean seeing pieces fly off a bit is awesome but when entire modules and chunks disappear...like wow And the icing is a proper flip on a mini bit Incredible battle
That's the most awesome show of force I've seen yet!
amazing best thing on science or discovery
It is a ton of fun watching spinners, but flippers are on a whole other level. Definitely glad we have another contender this year when it comes to flippers. Hail Hydra!
Bring back Duck!. The Quack Attack Demands Respect! Vendici Mia!
The first thing to come out of my mouth when I saw this match on Friday was “Warhawk gave birth to triplets” XD
I hereby dub damage of this type as being "de-Voltroned".
I'd like to know who makes those rubber isolators for Warhawk so I can avoid them.
One of the best fights!
At this point I’m starting to believe that Hydra is actually more powerful than Bronco
This was a mind blower and a game changer. I believed in Hydra before the season started, but it's the King of flippers now. Bronco can get height but Hydra is doing icewave levels of dismantling.
It's almost a shame as it was shaping up as a great fight till then! Still, can't argue against how impressive that flipper is and a robot falling into pieces! Great entertainment
What an epic battle so nice to see shreds all over the place
Don't underestimate the power of something small they are alot tougher than you know
I think Bronco has serious serious competition. I don't remember a flipper breaking an opponent apart like this before. Hydraulics can definitely work for a flipper. Flipping heck.
CRAZY how WAR Hawk looked like he STILL wanted to keep going buuuuuut was kind of seperated 😉 GREAT BATTLE!!!!
This is easily my all time favorite fight!
Hahaha... so entertaining.
Amazing. Even better than bronco. Unbelievable that Hydra broke war hawk.

"Ugh, why'd we have to get the ref who shouts super loud?"
They seem like such nice folks and their bot looks great. I hope they do better very soon.

Guys, this new hand lotion smells AMAZEBALLS!
Practicing for the role of Hagrid in the local amateur theatre re-enactment of Harry Potter "I shouldn't have said that... I should not have said that"
They have been evaluating my life choices
" I cant believe I just traveled across the globe to get knocked out within 30 seconds twice "
“I will now demonstrate how to properly use an axe” -The ref, probably.
“The meat goes inside the taco like THIS!” “Dude, I’m trying to tell you, we are NOT making tacos!”
"It's time to make the doughnuts."
I can’t believe you wore that today!
Aw no! I glued my hand to my face again!
“Dangit, I opened iTunes.”
Dammit,I gave my shopping list to Faruq instead of presenting the bot
"Please remove item from bagging area and wait for assistance."
When you hear the door unlocking and realizing you forgot to take the chicken out the freezer
Faruq farted in the battle box, and the construction of the box itself acts as a perfect reverberation chamber, making it one of the most epic sounding farts of all time. The judge advises him that its a knock-out fart.
That moment when you hear Faruq's introduction for your battlebot.
The face you make when you know that you provide good entertainment from winning as much as loosing 👌😂🍺
"Not the new Minotaur, too!"
“I can’t get a moment’s peace around here...”
The Ref is trying to teach the guys how to use the axe on their bot.

People everywhere are making jokes, but Emmanuel and Kevin are providing every detail of what happened, pics, etc. This is perhaps the most knowledge-intensive AMA of the season and even teams are learning from it.
I think they need to get ahold of the manufacturer of their rubber insulators for a warranty claim.
Just give it up. There was nothing special about this bot other than it being the battlebots version of the redskins.
AMA the insurance company?
The 3 horseman?
Rest in Pieces Warhawk 😢
You guys got some fixin' to do!
How do they feel their multibot strategy is working?
A pretty simple bot, but proven effective! Though i dont know why people keep trying flame throwers. They do so little little. But as flame cannons go, Gruff's seems fairly consistent at least
Very impressive flamer. Well done!
Their defense is something to be admired. Really made Copperhead work for that victory
When I see Gruff's flames, I totally forgot about Free Shipping
Gruff has the coolest flamer. Having the coolest anything is always great.
I'm 100% on the Gruff train! Fire and flips!
Biggest obstacle with flamers is not setting themselves on fire. Gruff's does seem the most effective I've seen though.
The only thing these guys need is cooler shirts and more self confidence.
I felt they won on aggression
Gruff was close to being 2-0, could have melted those huge Copperhead tires into rubber soup.
LOVED that flamer!! Can you get it to work for longer? And hotter?
The only flame that looks like it is actually decent and can do something to a bot
Duck! is being disrespected. More on the mighty Quack Attack, please.
They definitely dominated that match. Copperhead had no control whatsoever and spent most it's time flailing about
A flamer that is a serious active weapon. Love the bot, but if they had that flamer centered, coupled with a grapple device, it could be a serious KO machine.
I don't remember seeing their first fight, was it aired and I just missed it? Either way I was very impressed with their flame thrower, looking forward to seeing more from Gruff.
That Flamethrower is epic also a pretty tough bot.
