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
I'm happy to see Tantrum and Shellshock at last!
R.I.P! (rotator in pieces) it was nice knowing ya lol
Tombstone AND Cobalt in the same episode? What is this, Christmas?
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 🙂
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
Can't wait, what a fight card. Cobalt and bombshell- going with my season almost favorite cobalt.
How do I watch this if I don’t have tv... is there a streaming service or something?
The Duck! Vendici Mia tour continues. The Quack Attack Leads the Pack!
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.
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..
This episode has poor matchups. Duck and Quantum or saw blade would have been a good fight .
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 😉
Hope the next show has P1 and Deep Six fighting.
Bronco is my favorite bot, but man was I disappointed last week 🙁
Finally get to see Tantrum!
Looks like an awesome fight card 😀 cant wait... Faruq take it away my man!
Who I think is going to win: Tombstone, Death Roll, Cobalt, Tantrum, Lock-Jaw, SawBlaze, and Rail Gun Max.
Bombshell, glad we got to see you while you lasted.
Why do you always put the same sort of bots together? Spinners against spinners, flippers against flippers etc???
Death Roll Cobalt Tantrum Duck Sawblade Rail Gun Max Falcon Main Event Tombstone
Honestly I’m hurt about bronco but to be fair I’ve been hurt since old toro days
Dang. This is a good card. Lots of fights that can go either way

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
Personally if I was rotator. I'd armor the hell out of everything and ditch the discs for this round. If he can take a good 2-4 hits. There's a chance tombstone can kill itself. We've all seen it hit so hard it's spewed its guts before. Just a thought. Not practical but hey.
Rip rotator nice knowing ya
I hope Rotator has a real big hunk of steel to replace a spinner with.
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..
Now that's a main event! I'm going for Tombstone.
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.
Oh this will be a good fight!! I pick Rotator for the win!
Win Stoney! My 3.5 year old nephew would love to see you win!
RIP Totator. Get a giant nut Tombstone! biteforce is losser
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.
Well, I guess tombstone's battery could always die after start up
Now that Cobalt has gone vertical, Rotator was the next best option.
Um.. we are long overdue for biteforce and tombstone.. settle this nice and early like..
🤷♂️ where's the rest of the card? Tombstone can get boring when he's seen twice in the first 7 episodes. We have 10+ bots that have yet to get airtime, or have had unaired fights (I.E. Sidewinder & P1). NEW BOTS PLEASE!
Rotator is about to have a very bad day.
I think one will come down to driving
Now THIS has “match of the year” written all over it.
Look at all these people forgetting Rotator destroyed Icewave with a configuration designed specifically for Tombstone...
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
The question is whether or not tombstones blade can squeeze between rotators. If so, he has the reach to destroy rotator. Otherwise, it should be an interesting fight

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
Texas Twister was more effective upside down. 😂
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
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.
There been a lot of good fights this year
What a different type of sneak peek. I wonder why? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
Do they sell tickets to see this live?? Where do they take place. My son wants to go sooo bad
“Give him the wheels” Famous last words
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
Never seen these 2 before
I really want to see Axe Backwards succeed, to show that full-body drums are viable.
😎ooo this is going be good🖒
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
Best of the night
That was so awesome fight! The best episode of this season so far 😍
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!
Wish this was on dvd so can watch over and over come on put to dvd
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
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
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!
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.
Amazing. Even better than bronco. Unbelievable that Hydra broke war hawk.
Hahaha... so entertaining.
🎯 AND, he crazier than a chef. 🥞 🍪 🍔
One of the best battles of the year. Hydra is fierce!
This was crazy hydra is coming for bronco for sure
What’s happening here? Wrong answers only. ... See MoreSee Less
"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.
Windows 10 needs an urgent Update, please wait...
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."
Aw no! I glued my hand to my face again!
I can’t believe you wore that today!
“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.
Tim massively regrets picking "Rock" as the Ref slams down his "Paper"
Dammit Jim! You put the lime in the coconut, not the coconut in the lime...
They ate a crave case of sliders then realized they're out of toilet paper.
Well, I hope this doesn’t... fall apart.
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.

Glorious carnage awaits those who turn on their television sets and switch to Discovery #BattleBots Fight Night is on NOW! And stay after for Savage Builds - the new series by former BattleBots builder and Judge Adam Savage ... See MoreSee Less
I’m watching the show now, I love the show
That was the most epic episode until now. So much action, destruction and so many surprising outcomes. Just perfect
My sister watches for the carnage. She was very happy tonight.
This might have been the best episode, beginning to end, ever.
I am there now!!! I am soooo excited!!! 😎
Imagine if japan take this fights to the anime...lol
Wow! An amazing amount of carnage tonight. Never seen so many bots literally ripped apart. AWESOME!!!
Sooooo disappointed with Branco tonight. I miss my bot! Hope they bring their game next time. 😕
I’m glad I dvr . Way to many commercials this year .
That was the greatest episode of all time!
Ragna-flop needs to go home and work on improving their bot. They've only been operational for like 10 seconds or so between their 2 fights. Both have been 1 hit KOs. Friday's fight was all of 3½ seconds.
All of the fights are great.
it doesn't look like you are going to have judges explain their decision during episodes. tonight the commentary crew tried to explain judges decisions a bit, but I wonder if you could find an ex judge or someone even more familiar with the rules to give some thoughts on close decisions. when you watch football or basketball now they have ex officials explain rules.
That first match was beyond words. Flipped into 3 pieces!!
Show is great!, Faruq needs to go, and 2 hours is a little much for 15 mins (if your lucky) of battle bots.🤷♂️
in the finale they often need to fill up some time. if free shipping and yeti don't get to the final seeing another match between those two would be entertaining. much more than some random bot being sacrificed to tombstone.
Great Fights Tonight!
WOW!!!! Just WOW!!!! I knew it was going to be an amazing Bot fighting night!
Oh my gawd!!! That has to be the most destructive episode I've seen!
As I was bailing hay I thought... hydra and my kicker bailer aren't so much different.
So what constitutes when Kenny Florian shakes hands or just pats on the shoulder?
I like bite force, but was hoping to see it being launched by bronco 😆
Wow bronco was out classed in every way possible
POOF. Sparks flying everywhere! #BattleBots

For the first time ever, legendary flipper Bronco takes on the 2018 Champion Bite Force. This fight has me all verklempt so please discuss amongst yourselves. Don't miss BattleBots, tonight 8pm (ET) on Discovery (check your local listings for the exact time in your area). And don't miss Savage Builds, staring our friend Adam Savage right after BattleBots. ... See MoreSee Less
Very Excited! We have been wondering when we get to see Bronco back in action.
This is going to be an amazing match! I can hardly wait till tonight!!! I can’t even pick a winner for this match, I like them both equally. 😎
I hope Bronco was able to protect those damn wheels this match!
My kid loves bronco, to the point we had all of the videos I could find on YouTube looping through a projector at his birthday party. And had Dairy Queen put a picture in the cake.
I love the tension they built up with this one, explaning everything very clearly.
Did the episode on Wednesday not air? I remember reading something about how it wouldn’t, but I thought that was last week. Time Means nothing to me, so I don’t keep track.
I can’t wait! BRONCO!!!!
What a hype video! Whoever is editing these video packages are doing are brilliant job.
Ughhhh nooooooo. We've got a storm coming in and now we've lost our satellite signal 5 minutes before showtime. Bronco is my favorite and I was waiting all season for him! 😠 Edit: Well, I got my signal back and caught plenty of bot action, including watching my fave Bronco absolutely failing tonight. It guts me when he fails. I miss those epic flips. 😒
Waiting for 🤪unexpected surprises.
This is a great fight in the making
BattleBots: would love to see the judges’ scoring breakdowns on decisions, with at least a brief analysis. Could you post the scoring system under plot outline under “about”—for quick reference? Great to have that handy without having to dig through a link. (I know, I should have it memorized. 🤓)
I can't wait to see this fight!
It is an honor to face Bronco!
My 2 cents on the main event. Soon as Bronco raised its flipper at the wrong time, Bite Force chewed the end off and that was it. Am I surprised at the result? Not really. At this point, it may be a show down between Bite Force and Tombstone.
This is probably the most hyped I am for a match
Ooh. Not sure who my money is on in this one. The best flipper in the competition against last year’s champ. I think I’m going to bet on Biteforce by decision (with the stipulation that IF Bronco puts Paul Ventimiglia’s bot up into the lighting grid, the fight is over: Bronco wins...) Either way, going to be a great fight.
Can't walt for this match. This could be epic!
I fear for Broncos wheels. But if they stay on the whole time he has this fight I think.
Put it back on regular Hulu!!!!!!
Bronco needs the first hit. If he is able to flip Bite Force and possibly getting him on his back, Bronco stands a good chance of getting Bite Force out of the arena. If Bite Force is able to get the first hit, then they’re gonna keep hitting and pushing Bronco all over the box and win with either a 1:30 knockout or a unanimous decision.
If Bronco wins I fully expect the boys to pound all hell out the lexan like the time they beat Hazard 😎💪
