The ultimate robot-fighting series returns for an all-new metal crunching season, premiering Thursday, December 3 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel in the US.
After production was halted earlier this year due to COVID-19, BATTLEBOTS is back for a brand-new season. Sixty teams from across the globe converged for the hardest hitting, unremitting, steel splitting tournament in combat robotics. Unproven rookies, up-and-coming stars and legends in the game throw their fearsome fighting machines into the BattleBox for a chance to walk away with the preeminent prize in robotic sport: The Giant Nut.
The Season Premiere includes an epic Main Event clash: former world champion Ray Billings with his lethal bot Tombstone faces Jack Barker’s End Game from New Zealand. Jack has been looking forward to facing Tombstone’s deadly blade since his first appearance as a rookie in 2018 – this will be his moment of truth. Other stars include Whiplash and SawBlaze, both with championship aspirations, Captain Shrederator, hoping to spin its way to a win against Lock-Jaw, and Bloodsport, who will be out for blood against Skorpios.
Filming with cast, crew and bot builders was carried out under the strictest health and safety protocols, with constant supervision and regular testing, and without a live audience. Instead, the spectators were the teams themselves, watching all the action (and their competitors) from specially constructed “opera boxes” placed around the giant BattleBox arena.
In this season the youngest competitor is just 11 years old and the lineup includes the first ever 500 lb. walking robot.
The show premieres on Discovery Channel (US) and is also scheduled to run in parallel on Discovery Canada. The whole season is being distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal.
Trey Roski, creator of BattleBots, said: “This new season is our most exciting ever, with constant surprises, upsets, and technical innovations. We discover new heroes, a few legends are felled, and newbies emerge as BattleBots stars. We’re delighted that, despite COVID-19, we were able to film such an amazing new season for our millions of BattleBots fans around the world.”
The wait is over. Let the bot battles begin!

BattleBots 2020 Episode 10 (Discovery)
1 day ago
From our friends at Robot Wars Shuntposting… ... See MoreSee Less
Best episode in a while! A few awesome fights
last episodes the fights were really good...none were boring, the judges judged fairly.....but this fight topped the cake!!
This was one of the best matches I've ever seen. Hands down.
A awesome battle!! That whole battlebots fight card was GREAT!!!!
Probably the best fight I've ever seen on BattleBots
I've seen all kinds of craziness in the Battlebox over the years, especially since it came back to TV...but I NEVER though THIS could happen...😱
It made for great TV, but there have been other equally destructive hits in the past. Ice wave broke robots in to two pieces, others have been ripped apart in one or two hits. Amazing fight either way.
This fight was off the charts good. That explosion was awesome.
“BattleBots” has always my favorite show. Watching scrap metal fly, robots getting destroyed, etc. But after last week, that explosion rocked the world. Uppercut is a force to be reckoned with.
Uppercut is a beast this season. Wow it was brilliant
uppercut is a BEAST.
Really glad to see Uppercut doing so well, because their design is rather unique and definitely worthy. I do believe that they can take on the toughest competition and win it all. All they need to do is make sure they can win the ground game!
That's a crazy fight between those 2 great bots.
For all ive seen while watching robot wars and battlebots ive never seen an explosion like this
I've decided, I'm going to wait a week to watch each episode so I can only watch the 30 minutes of fights, and skip the hour of commercials. Its ridiculous.
Happened right in front of Dr. Inferno Jr.'s builder too! Funny how that works, huh?
Jackpot is looking TOUGH and I want to see them go up against Huge.
Was an amazing fire ball!!
I was impressed by uppercut would love to see him with minotaur.
Student sets his mentor on fire. Very Kurosawa.
A great fight between people that respect each other. Valkyrie and Rotator was a good fight also.
Are we not getting the next Bounty Hunters until next Monday?
THAT was an awesome thing to see!!!
Even surprised Uppercut driver too, watch when the camera pans to him after that hit. It was a good chuckle.
One of the craziest things I’ve ever seen in the box!
Great work! But I think Go choked uncharacteristically. I saw he exposed the flank and was screaming. As it turns out 'cut exploited the gift fully and delivered an almost knockout punch.
Uppercut looks very dominant this year! Very strong team to be in the finals and possible champions this year!!
That bot is a beast and the Kid is super modest. Great fight against Sawblaze
That was an amazing fight.👏👏👍
This bot is already a killer but it needs a better stability. Really amazing fight 💪
They have a really good chance at winning the giant nut this year
Quite impressed by the weapon theory Jenny went through in episode 3(?) If Uppercut could verse any bot whether vintage or other fighting competition, who would it be to be their master piece fight?
Love this gracious team and their scary impressive bot!!
That vertical spinner makes it difficult to turn right but easier to turn left. Saw blaze tried to dogde right. Don't know why
You go! Great win over Sawblaze!
If they end up on opposite sides of the bracket, I'm making the call now for Uppercut and BloodSport to meet in the finals.
omg this fight was AMAZING
Kenny Florian left this weapon off of his top ten list 🤣🤣🤣
That explosion was EPIC!!
Uppercut is brutal.
Love the bot. The weapon will always remind me of this.
Team Uppercut, congratulations on your win against SawBlaze. That explosion scared the hell out of me. 2-0. Who are you going after next?
Serge Ranger you're favorite!!
Went down with a KABOOM!
Uppercut will destroy everyone in 5 seconds
You guys got a really good bot.
Awesome bot how many episodes are there hopefully be in the final
Nice job, kids!
Uppercut is definitely a powerhouse this season, and I hope they can build on their success this season if they fall short. That fight with Saw Blaze is definitely a memorable one, especially with that explosion. It has the potential to be the next Bite Force, IMHO. However, I could see this team having some trouble against some more experienced drivers like Jake Ewert and Hydra, though I have to say I'm not too crazy about Team Whyachi these days.
Going to Win the Nut!!!!
Fantastic fight for Matt! It had me on the edge of my seat. 🙂
This was a very good fight on one hand I'm glad that Kraken one I like their robot but on the other hand I really like witch doctor and they was last year's runner-up for the giant nut and it don't even look like they're going to make the tournament this year
I'm going to be honest, I preferred this fight to Rotator Vs. Valkyrie, because seeing two different robots fight is more interesting than seeing two similar ones go toe-to-toe. I love seeing non-spinners win against robots with spinning weapons...
Awesome fight among friends! Love both teams and love the support they give each other❤️❤️
I was for witch doctor hoping they would have won.
i think witchdoctor had an issue thats why it was wobbling around giving kraken an upper hand..
Will Kraken and Quantum ever face off? Who has the better bite?
Wonder if we will ever see a crush bot end a fight from an actual bite. Would be cool to see. A bite that pierces the armor and just kills the other bot.
Kraken's driving was 🔥!
Dammit,, who won !!. (I would say Kraken)
Thought Witch Doctor won that one. Completely destroyed the mini bot, Ripped Kraken's armor to pieces and only suffered damage to the one disc. Kraken just never does enough to damage to impress me I guess.
Not gonna announce the winner smh
Not just a great fight, but awesome sportsmanship between two great competitors! My two favorite teams!
Super battlebots! Go witch doctor
Imagine if Kraken actually had solid armor too
I think team WD should seriously go back to the drawing board after these last two fights.
When is this weeks fight card released??
Does anyone know when the next 4 episodes of BattleBots Bounty Hunters are coming out?
Tzach SakalAsaf NaamanOren EliyasovRoy Waldman
I am in love with this bot wrestling 😭😭❤❤
Why pretty much every single modern robot looks the same? Even rhe same green paint.
Curious.. How can Kraken win Huge or Mammoth...... Hahahah
Wonder if WD ran into a batch of bad steel. Second drum busted in as many fights?
Isn't kraken supposed to be an octopus?

Kenny was showing Chris some of his MMA moves when he exploded.
He went inside for a minute and he sees that his dinner is in flames so he grabbed the fire extinguisher 🧯.
Just tending to the garden of flaming robot parts and dead hopes and dreams
They took his stapler and he wanted to burn down the building......then had a change of heart
Judges decisions have been so bad they decided to try a smoke screen to make the judges decide strictly by sound.
This year, they have a little tunnel for when the robot is coming out of the locker room. This is the answer to dry ice and sometimes there is someone holding a bunch of sparklers for a pyrotechnic flair.
Smothering a contestant for yet again not firing their primary weapon.
What do you mean "you're legally a robot, and want to fight in battlebots"? "Hold my beer." *guy rushes out of office and steals fire extinguisher off of wall*

The battlebots clown fireworks trick went horribly wrong and now he's sad.
A BattleBot be came self aware and realized it can live with its primary objective of killing its own kind. And self destructed.

Every bot builder starts somewhere! They likely will not make it much further but it was a learning experience & hopefully, we'll see them again next year when they make some much needed improvements. I mean, Chomp is a good example. I *reeeally* didn't like the prior configurations of the bot & did not enjoy their matches, but this season is their best showing IMHO.
They cant drive it, it doesnt respond well. It comes apart. They were lucky to be snee
How many of you have competed in the box? Pain Train are rookies. They are learning. Was that a great fight? Absolutely not. But they did perform much better than their first. And seeing how their weapon failed I am sure they learned a whole lot about their bearings and retainers. If you think any bot was perfect in their first iteration, you are sorely mistaken. Even Tombstone had predecessors, most notably Last Rights.
When PT took the fiest weapon off of Smeeeee, we figured they woukd get the win, but when they lost their weapon, i figured it would go to Smeeeee. This was a mild surprise, but im ok with the outcome.
Love seeing new engineers and their bots of destruction. Thank you Pain Train!
Hope to see them bring the pain again in the next season! It seems like there's some issues getting traction to be able to comfortably move across the floor. If they can get that sorted they could be a force to contend with. The fight with Smeeeeeee I feel like Smeeeeeee knew they only had to slip up and let PT get round the side or back and get one hit on them and they would be toast...
I would have voted for Smeeeeee, as they still had 1 working weapon at the end, and they were still rolling. Lots of damage on both sides, but Smeeeee won IMO.
Pain Train is definitely not one of the better designed or better engineered bots this season. Their win against Smeeee was of luck; however this one is definitely among the lemons of this season, like 2018's Battle Royale with Cheese or 2019's Nelly the Ellybot. They would need blind luck if they were up against someone like Tombstone, Hydra, or Uppercut. I could actually see them beating Witch Doctor though, considering how much of a disappointment WD has been this season. I think this team should seriously go back to the drawing board.
Terrible driving! Very unstable bot!
I love the team's enthusiasm for the sport. Hopefully they get some kinks ironed out.
I hope it wasn't anything too big to fix from your fight with SMEEEEEE...
I was pretty appalled when that thing coughed up it's weapon, lol.
I like seeing the newer designs. I really want to see Smeeeeee fight huge.
don't see how they won
How the heck did the weapon break off?
Aptly named. They were a pain to watch.
I fell asleep during the fight.. who won? 😴🥱😏
First question: how did y’all win that fight? 0% control
Lots of crappy designs botz this year! But some good ones likeUpper cutt is gonna sweep! N win all! B the GOAT of Battlebutz! 🏆🥊 PS look out for cheap 5k built Jackpot
I wanna see you guys spend 10k on a bot and put yourself on national TV
Pain Train's weapon is barely exposed. It has to get extremely close to make contact. It's poor design, in my opinion. Smeee is stupid too. I just want to see it get shredded by the likes of a tombstone.
Pain train got mangled. Good fight
All aboard the Pain Train!
Sorry. Really bad match with 2 crap robots.
That was a fight, head on.. unlike building a contraption to avoid being hit😏
The first fight and the last fight were epic tonight! Love Battlebots!
One of the best episodes to date!! Uppercut is on a roll. I cannot believe he exploded sawblaze like that!! Insanity!!
Great fight between Rotator and Valkyrie. I hate to see either get a loss for that fight!
Rotator and Valkyrie fight was one of the best ever. The uppercut fight was a close second!
Tonight's episode was amazing!! Probably the best, or at least one of them, episode I've ever seen!
A lot of filler tonight but that uppercut fight was epic!
That Valkyrie vs Rotator was one hell of a way to kick of my favorite night of the week. Great match. Tough break for Jamison at the end, crazy impressed with uppercut
Dude what a great flip by slapbot not to mention being roasted on the inside
That was a great fight. BOTH bots did fabulous. Loved the sportsmanship, too.
Another great fight... 🙂. To bad it's Skarko's last season.
Rotator may have had it till those last big hits by Valkyre
The main event has to be ranked in top 5 battles of all time. That was wicked.
Omg that was a main event, poor Sawblaze though that has to be the seasons most brutal beat down. After that I think Tombstone is safer to fight than Uppercut lol
What awesome fights between Valkyrie and rotator and sharkie and slapshot !! Love it !!
Just saw Valkyrie and Rotator throw down, what an epic fight! We’re just getting started.
Best opening fight ever. Pain Train needs to figure out how to drive in that arena...it's 'pain'ful to watch him drive. Uppercut needs to fight Tombstone asap and either one of those needs to fight Hydra...and BRING BACK BITE FORCE !!!
Amazing episode, and I can't wait for the Uppercut vs. Hydra matchup...it has to happen right! I hope it did... 😀
That Valkyrie vs Rotator match was freaking classic!!! One of the best ever!!! OMG! I actually clapped...
Rotator vs Valkyrie was awesome.
This bot won't just will win the giant nut, but also utterly destroy all other bots.. Kudos to the kids for designing such a marvel..
It isn't showing on Discovery Go.... only Ep.5
Uppercut was a killer! So surprising from such a young guy. I think he surprised himself!
This genuinely scares me. Hitting, I fear hitting the lexan wall would crack it open
What a great line up last night of innovative robots, wow, the battles were excellent and the real plus was not having to stomach Ray Billings and his RC brush hog.
You got this Victor! Gonna be a fun match tonight!
Excellent fight night...can’t wait for next week!
Damn good show tonight! Holy crap!
What would it take to convert bot to a helicopter, or at least a hover drone, using that spinning disk? 😆
I've never seen a ref have to warn someone before. Poor sportsmanship.
well and also if you want some news regarding a season 6, batllebots said next year willful non-use of a weapon will be penalized
As some of the fights were just jaw dropping crazy... gotta tip my hat for slapbox with the flaming sueplex!
I wish someone would build a bot with a clamp and a cutting torch
isn't this just a Radio Controlled toy? When will they be "smart"? Now if they drove themselves, that would be very cool
Ready to record! I just hope that there's clean decisions
my day just got better~!!!!!!!!!
Correction. Clean and FAIR decisions! No more screwing bots unless it's Hydra. #Hugegotscrewed
best 15 minutes on TV. Thank you Discovery
I think at the of a battle, robots should return to their square. Bots failing would lose or at least have a point taken away in judging.
Valkyrie vs Rotator. THAT IS BATTLEBOTS! Holy crap! THAT is why I need to get in this! So made up for last weeks debacle. Vic, Fred, you guys left it all on the floor and I thank you both for it! Good luck rebuilding and can't wait to see you all again!
Geeze best fight of the year!
Boards don't hit back. Bruce Lee
Wow! Maybe the best fight night ever!
1) Hydra 2) Uppercut 3) Tombstone
How can a family watch?

It was awesome!!! I've rewatched it 3 times already!
Best fight you’ve ever seen? Multiple 30- foot flights across the arena? Unbridled savagery and carnage? I. Can’t. Wait!
Totally agree, best fight I've seen.
This was a great fight. I thought Rotator would win.
That was an AMAZING fight between Rotator and Valkyrie! To the point the judges had to get up, go in, and take a closer look at the bots. That was just fun to watch that whole fight.
It's robot Fighting time... 8 o'clock tonight. Michigan time Discovery Channel
Aww, spoilers, we were excited to find out which fight was the best... but now I guess we already know. 🥲
Rotator vs Valkyrie has to be a contending for best fight of the year amazing!!!
Should be pretty evenly matched, but my pick is the big spinny boi RotatoR.
Go Team Valkyrie. I'm tired of Team Rotator's drama already. Make them 0-2.
The best fight I've seen. Both were amazing!
WHAT A FIGHT!!! CLASH OF THE TITANS!!!
I really like both bots. Rotator has proven more reliable than Valkyrie so far, but I hope that isn’t what decides this fight! Should be a fun one.
WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THE MAD CATTER RUNS WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILD ON YOU BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROTHER!
Better duck and cover, ‘cause mayhem is about to enter the battle box.
You gotta love spinner on spinner violence
When sparks fly robots die
BattleBots , can not watch this on tv 😔. Is only for US.
I’m surprised that there aren’t more walkers ,,, BTW, what happened to the floor saws?
What's the time in India and which channel broadcast it.
That was EPIC!! GREAT BATTLE!!
Wait wait wait... we’ve already seen fires, upsets, and mass destruction - and THIS will be the best fight yet? ICANTWAIT!!!!
Isn't it already streaming on Discovery+? The episodes go up at like 2am on there for some reason.
No spoilers or anything, but this fight card contains some of the best fights in BattleBots' history. Let's just say Valkyrie vs. Rotator could provide enough light for a small metropolitan city or township. DO NOT MISS BattleBots: Fight Night - Thursday 8pm ET on Discovery or streaming on discovery+ ... See MoreSee Less
Valkyrie JD Gigabyte KO Slap Box JD Mad Catter KO (this sounds awesome) Tantrum JD SMEEEEEEEEEEEEE JD SawBlaze KO (but I can see Uppercut taking the upset) Mad Catter’s fight sounds amazing more SMEEEEEEEEEEEEE is great, and SawBlaze is back! Hyped af! 🤘🏻🔥
w00t! Starting out strong with RotatoR vs Valkyrie. I'm excited for the battle of the undercutters!
10 spinners, 1 horizontal vs horizontal match, I vertical vs vertical match, a very explosive main event, oh and Smeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees back.
Uppercut is my darkhorse to win this thing.
I will watch, but so far I'm not too thrilled with this season. Boring, and some sketchy decisions. Get it together Battlebots. You're losing your audience with these boring matches.
Do we have new judges as well? That would be awesome. or maybe some common sense in the way we score things.
which match will someone be robbed of a “W”? Seems like there is one each week.
This will be interesting. I could see Rotator and Valkyrie being evenly matched, being what they are. As with Extinguisher and Gigabyte, I'm favoring Extinguisher, primarily because full body spinners haven't had much success these days, not to mention Gigabyte's SECOND decapitation. Slap Box and Sharko...not sure about that one. Madcatter vs. Malice should be interesting. I'm more leaning toward Malice on that one, but the wind has been blowing in unusual directions this year. I'd favor Tantrum over Atom #94, considering the latter's performance in the last fight - that one seems like a lemon. Pain Train and Smeeeeee seems to be a headscratcher. Uppercut so far has been a bot with quite a bit of promise. For the moment - and I stress those three words because a lot can change my opinion after tomorrow night - Uppercut strikes me as being the next Bite Force.
OK my takeaways from from this: I agree that was one nasty match-up between Rotator and Valkyrie. While Gigabyte won in a knockout, I believe it went up against a robot it could win against. I can't really see this robot going far. Not much that Slap Box and Sharko. I have to say, Madcatter got lucky as heck against Malice. And sometimes luck prevails; Tombstone lost to Bombshell in the tournament in 2018. Atom #94 well - I think that team needs to go back to the drawing board. That bot is a lemon. On the same token, so are Pain Train and Smeeeeee - though one had to win. Now Uppercut has really solidified itself as being promising here with that win against Sawblaze. I could see this team go all the way and give some of the bigger folks (Hydra, Tombstone, etc.) a run for their money.
Patrick, I absolutely love this program AND I always think of you when watching it. When and if you and your dad retire from "car" racing this would be something you might consider. (You could call on your boys to assist the electronics side if it!)
I cant wait for a rule change next year. It's called BATTLE BOTS not Push your opponent around the arena bots. I get it if you weapons stop during a match. But to come out and NEVER fire your weapon 1 time and still some how get a win, that's a crock of doo doo
A great night, 14 real robots fighting it out with no Ray Billings and his RC brush hog. Love the sport when real robots are fighting!!
My favorite show! Line up looks great!
Uppercut is a beast
Going with Rotator, Gigabyte, Slap Box, Mad Catter, Tantrum, SMEEEEEEEEEEEE and Saw Blaze for the wins.
That's good, because it's going to take a lot to erase the stench of the "fight" Hydra gave us last week.
Huge design oversight by Malice!!! The totally flat back did them in!
No new bots? Have we seriously seen everyone already, this early into the tournament?
Mad Catter is the hour 1 main event! WHATCHA GONNA DO, THEN THE MAD CATTER RUNS WILD ON YOU BROTHER?!
Valkyrie (Who I met in Hartford with shatter, ribbon, and huge) and rotator both have the lower spinning disc. Since Valkyrie may be too low for rotator’s upper disc, I expect rotator to go with the upper wedge design. Then the two robots are very similar (barring weapon wright, etc). I think it will come down to some weapon on weapon stuff. But, probably something like Valkyrie loses a tire or rotator loses a belt or something.
The scoring system is fine the way it is. You cant have no agression or control and win the fight.
Hopefully, neither one uses a bicycle rack attached.
Just make Madcatter and Malice the main event and have the first hour and a half of Bunny and Martin trash talking.
my husband just asked me which fight are the judges gonna fuck up this week....i couldn't help but laugh
I’d love to see Madcatter Sharko & Tantrum do well this season . Smeeeeeeeeee’s design & tactic is flawed & annoying . Someone total that mess please
Please team with a company and bring us a real triple A game, that allows us to build our own bots and climb through the ranking gaining sponsors to get better metals, motors, ECT.. team with your builders to come up with a realistic side to this. And of course online. Honestly I think the makers of rocket league would be a great dev team for this.
This Battle on paper could possibly the best match of this season, can’t wait to see who wins this one.
A punch up vs a hammer down. Should be a great fight! Tough call though. Itll probably come down to driving
Watched on D+, absolutely awesome episode..
This is a tough one to predict but I'm going with Uppercut this time.
More SawBlaze, happy already! But Uppercut could take the upset here
Rooting for my boys in Sawblaze but I think Uppercut might have the.... upper hand given the design of their wedge vs Sawblaze’s . Sawblaze needs more weight up front or an extra set of wheels to stabilize.
I just hope both teams have fun.
I just finished watching the episode on discovery, and I was blown away indeed.
SawBlaze is going to be more mobile than Uppercut, and pretty sure SawBlaze wins the low ground here as well. Unless Uppercut gets a lucky shot, Jason will be driving circles around them and shoving them around how he do.
Where’s Duck!! I wanna see Duck and Bronco
Whoever wins this, wins the season. That’s my bold prediction.
I wanna see what uppercut can do, but I'm leaning towards sawblaze
Dust Pan for the win
Let's go uppercut!!
Where I can see full episodes???
I’m rooting for Uppercut... just like his design. Sorry Jamison
thank you for the dreamy fight night. that was epic
Hoping for Uppercut but it will likely be Sawblaze. Can't wait for this match.
Two top 16 bots from last year that look like they're a lot better this year. Uppercut looks like it hits really hard. SawBlaze finally has the one thing it's been missing:a weapon with knock-out power. I see SawBlaze using that dustpan front to get Uppercut off balance and KOing it with the hammer saw. But Uppercut could get a quick KO if it can get the right shot.
Tough call for this main event. But I’m going with SawBlaze winning.
Guys but this year there isn’t BiteForce?
LOVE ME SOME BATTLEBOTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAY..
Jamison has superhuman driving skills. Should be a fun match!

BattleBots When does the new episodes of bounty hunters go live each week?
Technical T-Rex FTW!
Check it out, it really is a aewsome episode
Change the rules or get better judges. 😡😡😡 Running from your opponent for three minutes is not a battle.
Maybe put spinner bots in a category by itself and the bots that have weapons that need to be fired as a division by itself.
I love this!
crybabies stfu. hydra had a perfect strategy. it was a UNANIMOUS DECISION. BLAME the judges if you dont like the result
1 week ago
For folks asking for proof that Hydra’s weapon was working see video. It was 100% working. Also, this match illustrates some problems with our rules that need to be updated (and that we apologize for). But first, This post is NOT to throw shade on Team Whyachi. They were smart, found a loophole and went for it. That’s always going to happen in a sport with exceptionally smart engineers like Jake and his family. If anyone is at fault and deserves blame it’s BattleBots—not Jake, not Team Whyachi, not the Ref, not the Judges. We will be updating the Tournament Rules and Judging Guidelines, but we want fans to know that we want our rules and guidelines to allow bots of different designs and novel attack strategies to have a path to victory, but not at the expense of NEVER using a functional/perfectly working active weapon. There is a lot to deconstruct here and we are reading and appreciating all of your comments. The rule committee will be meeting in the off season to conduct a full review of all the controversial matches and making the appropriate updates. This will be done with much consideration and with Bot Builder input. Fans need to know that BattleBots takes this very seriously. We are not, and never will be, a fake reality show. BattleBots is a young, evolving sport that we care deeply about, and will always endeavor to improve upon. This match caught us off guard and it's clear we need to update a few things. Let us finally say that there are some AMAZING matches to come. Next week’s fight card has two of the best matches in our history. Please keep watching and we deeply appreciate your support!
And PLEASE, during the only 3-minute match, stop taking the camera off of the match to show the reactions of the announcers, or of the people operating the remotes. It is highly distracting and interrupts the flow of the event. Thank you.
In my opinion, I dont think either team expected the match to go the way it did. My 8yr old son and I love the sport and the show. I'm convinced that Team Hydra (who are not the villains ) was expecting a more exciting match. It is what it is and no complaints will change the outcome of the match. My only issue is....with the big bar on Hydra, it put there bot in a bad spot because they eliminated their own weapon. With the bar on the bot, the flipper (Hydras only weapon) would never even be able to touch Huge. So in my opinion, if your primary weapon unable to either be used or doesnt/cant make contact with the other bot, the modification shouldn't be allowed. Boring match but at least it went the full time limit.
That Hydra/Huge fight made me so mad. What’s the point of fighting robots if they don’t have to fight? Lame af
Love that he's willing to take on the villain role lol. Go Hydra!
That fight killed all excitement for the season it's just sad, all because he didn't want his bot to take damage 🙄
The only thing worse than Hydra’s rack would have been if it had a Discovery + banner across it.
No thanks. They are my least favorite teams. Poor sportsmanship, cocky, don't think the rules apply to them. I thought Beta was bad but they are below Beta.
The win was legit. It was a smart play and the rules allow it. I think they should be changed but I also think it was an ingenious plan to deal with an otherwise difficult opponent.
The only way to fix this horrible performance being referred to as a "fight" is to either rematch them without the rack OR match up Hydra with Tombstone.
Everyone's favorite "good old boys" who seem dumber than a box of rocks and have won exactly nothing
When all your fellow competitors boo you, you screwed up.
Lost all my respect for Hydra and Jake
I have an awesome idea for an anti hydra weapon... I bet they would bitch like crazy if it got used.
The hydra strategy worked on huge but it was a colossal deuche bag stunt! But this is what I've come to expect from this team.
The second he back-talked the referee, was warned by the referee and responded with "he can back up", and then backed off for less than a second before doing exactly the same thing he should have been disqualified. That was infuriating and disrespectful to watch.

Gona pass on that. A whole family of poor sports answering questions is a hard no from me.
Ban Hydra and Jake Ewart from next season. Arguing with the refs is not allowed.
great team and love hydras last fight vs huge. did everything right!
They need to regulate and implement a rule to what atachments robots can use by registering them BEFORE entering the tournament so they dont make sudden changes out of nowhere. Also having a main weapon turned off counts as not working or disabled.
I'm fine with it, rooting for hydra, he saw the bronco fight, why repeat history, any other fight it's back to the flipper, if someone is creative enough to craft a mod for every robot, power to them, he saw a flaw and exploited it, change the rules if this isn't allowed
Was it smart strategy? Yes. Was it a way to win and keep the boy healthy for the tournament? Yes. Was it legal? Yes. Was it lame AF? Yes. Should a rule be put into place to keep that from becoming the norm? Yes.
Sorry...not watching. My son is autistic and loves this show. He was really affected by the poor sportsmanship of this team. I had to explain to him why they were acting like that and why it wasn’t right. I don’t care if anyone agrees with me...but my son needs a positive role model. So disappointed.
Huge got robbed, big time. Surprised that battlebots did not address this on the broadcast
