WE'RE BACK! BattleBots World Championship VII Coming to Discovery January 5th! Save the date! ... See MoreSee Less
YAAASSSSSS!!! So... when does the BB site update the Meet the Bots tab with Season 7 pics?
Awesome news! Unfortunately, this will be the first season after my dad (who was a huge fan and a nerd for robot fighting and had been watching since early CC days) passed away. He and I designed a robot that seems impossible to do but on paper is cool as hell. I will be watching with my daughter and hoping she will fell in love with the show like my dad did with me with CC Battlebots.
Where can we stream it? Discovery Plus?
Used to love watching battlebots till judges well ruined it all for me
Kathryn Denningtón 🥰🥰🥰
How many episodes will this be?
Don’t know, be hard without Tombstone, you should have made Ray a judge this season
Best show on TV today. And those 3 dudes are great
Awesome now I can quit watching reruns of BattleBots. But it's good to go back and see how much the Box have evolved season after season that's pretty cool.
IT’S ROBOT FIGHTING TIME!!! Starting the 2023 year with a bang by sparks flying, metal flying, and of course robots will die!
Can't wait. Love this. When is the next season starting 😃😃❤️❤️ excited to see new bots as well
Finally. Our family stops and watched this show have for years. We fantasize about being there all the time even thought about building one printed up the ropes and we don’t have money to do it
Can't wait. Love the BattleBots crew as much as the bots!
Woohoo! Ready for the carnage!
BattleBots Awesome! Good to know! I miss seeing battlebots on the Discovery channel
Lost track of all the episodes last season, hopefully this season I can get it right 😁
Can't wait & can't wait to watch my favorite ref #johnremar
Would love to see this in person one day
Mary Carole Worth - Look!!!! Best birthday present ever!!!!!!
Any idea about when next years taping will be in Vegas? Want to make sure I make it next year.
Looking forward to it!
Thank goodness! Thursday night tv sucks without Battlebots! 🙏
Finally!!! Now waiting for team pics of all the teams that battled.
I can't wait I was in Vegas to see tge first 32

I have a feeling everybody’s gonna be asking the same question of “Wen Re:Mars?” during the panel. I know they plan to put them up by the end of the year, but Season 7 is approaching… fast!
I really hope they put the season 7 bots on the website after this
Would love for them to be at RI Comic Con
Still waiting for the full Season 7 field reveal.
When will the Season 7 Field reveal BattleBots
I would like to see tombstone 🥺
This is the way
You really need to change a rule if a Bot is getting counted out and the other bot hits them then the count should stop and get reset at 10.
Martin Mason!? Ooooooooh yeeeeeaaaaahhhh!!
Madcatter's little wedgelets look MEAN now! That thing is gonna give me nightmares for weeks
Happy Black Friday BotFans. Please enjoy savings across the BattleBots Store website! ... See MoreSee Less
The BattleBots World Championship VII TV shoot was incredible! New TV season coming early next year. Nightly BattleBots Destruct-A-Thon live show starts in February! ... See MoreSee Less
Bots FC you guys clearly made for some good pictures
Any news on the 2022 reMars fights being uploaded on YouTube yet (or maybe for FB supporters first and then publicly on YouTube) since you guys plan on putting them up this year?
Can’t wait to watch the destruction and see who wins the Giant Nut! So much fun to experience as a fan at home too!
One of our favorite shows on TV..... can't wait till it's on again.
I’ve watched battlebots back in the early 2000’s. I still enjoy it but I’m getting tired of the spinner meta. It literally is “spin to win”. We need more flipper and hammer bots.
Oh I cannot wait! I've seen every episode and am ready for more. My notification tone is even "robots activate"
You teases, Battlebots! The fights pictured sound great
Maybe this time we can skip the YouTube exclusive fights and either put all the fights in the show or on Discovery +?
Oh, frag! I am looking forward to that. And there's HUGE!, one of my favorite bots.
Can hardly wait - especially for the live show. Sure there’s a lot to look forward to there.
Y’all lined up Shatter to take on HUGE in Champions and it didn’t happen, so y’all just make it happen in the regular season. lol
I wonder which robots will be in the live nightly show?!?!
NEED MORE BATTLEBOTS ON TV
Looking forward to streaming and binge watching the season, gonna miss Tombstone, I wish ray a speedy recovery, they should have made him a judge this season.
Is it only if you buy discovery+ you can watch this?
So great!!!! Thankful I got to be apart of it!!! ❤️❤️
Love this show, waiting for the next one to be on TV
So wanted to go to the live event but had surgery. Next year definitely!
Can't wait tell the new season
"Hehehe, me HUGE!", "Ah shut up". Shatter took down Mammoth twice (before BattleBots, Shatter faced Mammoth as "Blue" in Orlando Maker Faire 2018), but it helps that Mammoth has no lethal weaponry, & a more reachable back. Mammoth beat HUGE thanks to its superior range (really, HUGE's forward reach is not decent, since it relies on being very close, almost on top of its foe, to strike). Now, Shatter has lesser advantages against HUGE. As they say, there is, to a degree, a rock-paper-scissors aspect in BattleBots (though not always the case). Usually, the process of fusion is greater than emulsification. But given the track record of this nuclear reactor, that may not be the case this time. What better way to roast a pizza than to call on the hottest flamethrowers in the field? Then again, this pizza bites back, & if it is indeed anything like Uppercut (it is made by some of the same people), RipPeroni is going to blow a flamethrower up into yet another massive fireball in the arena.
Please make the full season available to watch in the UK 🇬🇧🙏
Can’t wait to watch!
What kind of creations do you guys have? I know you're interested to even be reading these comments.
What channel, Discovery+ or HBOMax?
BattleBots when will the Field of Season 7 be revealed? I can’t wait to see the newcomers! 😋
"The show is a smash even before its premiere!"
BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON! Tickets for the first 4 months on sale from November 14th.

DESTRUCT-A-THON full press release here - battlebots.com/tickets/
Will it be recorded for people who can’t make it to Vegas for any sessions?
Looks like no one can watch it live
From my reading of the release, this will be a daily show, featuring some of the battlebots we all know and love. They say the action will be real, not faked. And that bots such as Witch Doctor and Hypershock will participate. But it doesn't say that the people behind those bots will actually be there and driving them. I suspect not. I also suspect the bots might not adhere to official Battlebots specs, perhaps to make them more robust. Still, this is probably the only show that could ever get me to go back to Vegas.
Also, what does a "VIP bundle" include?
If you thought 2022 was gonna be the Year of BattleBots, 2023 is gonna extend farther than ever
I'm confused when it says the first 4 months? I thought it was just a three day event in February
I hope battlebots is around for many more years so I can take my sons when they are older to a live taping! <3
Have also been waiting for this for quite a while, lol.
Oh wow, daily? That's full time jobs and more for the teams involved. Not even starting about the money (and time) needed for spares.
Will it be streamed somewhere? Could be nice to see it live like Norwalk
Andi Bassman wann gemma Vegas? 🤖
Will the big name bots in this be watered-down, mass produced versions that are nowhere near as good as the genuine article? I can only image you'd have to do something like this to keep it cheap enough to make sense. Also clearly going to use hired talent to actually be stand-ins for the actual teams as they all have lives and jobs and couldn't possibly dedicate their time to this. Very bizarre development, IMO. I fear this might be Battlebots jumping the shark though.
Heran gak ngapa2in dapet lencana 😭

Of course it's a "smash"!
Now about the actor part whats the deal with that and you guys hiring?😁
... See MoreSee Less
I had to Google this to see what it even is. Interesting that there's going to be a permanent Battlebots show in Vegas, but since I live a few states away I won't really be able to go see it. The thing that upsets me though is the actors pretending to drive the robots. That seems a bit unnecessary?
Colour me unsold on the idea
A new logo! I wonder what I will do with it😎
Hiring actors to pretend to drive or own the bots is the lamest thing Battlebots has ever done. And somehow they still aren’t paying builders after all these years. FAIL.
I’ve enjoyed Battlebots because it’s been special. Weekly the specialness will be gone. I doubt I’ll watch it. Sorta like I don’t watch basketball until the sweet 16.
Sadly they’re hiring actors to pretend to be driving the robots while the actual people are off screen, I don’t understand who thinks of these ideas
Destruct-A-Thon that's sounds promising
Fake battles get my no vote. Hope it doesn't ruin things for the real drivers and teams
Is this the latest name for the bounty hunter tournament? Hopefully there will be such a tournament occurring with season 7.
Time to go back to local college robot battles
waiting for the next series to start
I want a shirt with that logo so I can wear it every time I poop
What is this
What r the dates
What is this? 🤔
Hussein Al Fahad
Adam H 👀
So it's like a musical then? I still dont fully get it
BattleBots is that gonna be the Amazon Re:Mars fights?
Okay BattleBots after this fails you can DM me to so I can explain how to take BattleBots to the next level. I have a pretty good idea on how to grow and expand the robotics sport. This will not work. I wish it would but this is a bad idea. My plan to grow the brand will work.
Can't still believe this
Is this seriously
Our first BattleBots Baby!
Baby Ren was born on October 19th at 3:36am to Mama and Papa @leitorres_ & @jorgiec21. Mama’s water broke during the taping of World Championship VII, and our production team got her off to the hospital stat! Everyone is now home and healthy and we wish Baby Ren a Happy Birthday! ... See MoreSee Less
Congrats to the parents! That's gonna make a hell of a story for the parents.
Tiffany Dalsing coulda been you 😄
Congratulations! Now it's up to BattleBots to ensure that Ren gets to celebrate their birthday in style every year!
Season 6 was airing exactly nine months ago. I offer no further commentary. 🙂
Baby Ren..... how about maybe Baby HUGE! or Baby Death Roll...... is the ink on the birth certificate dry... maybe there is still time... someone make sure the parents know all of their options....
That’s so cool I think BattleBots should give Ren free tickets to the tapeings for life
Welcome to Planet Earth, Baby Ren! Happy birthday!
Congrats ! I could have helped if needed since I was there and a retired L& D nurse.
So awesome Congratulations to all
Precious! Congratulations to the proud parents!
Faruq Tauheed should have the coolest introduction for baby ren!!!!
Congratulations to the family🤗
Many blessings to them all. The baby is adorable!!
She’s beautiful! Congratulations!
I hope that baby dont get WHIPLASH you might have to see the WITCH DOCTOR cus if that cute baby ends up with a TOMBSTONE im gonna have a HUGE TANTRUM
Congratulations to all. Ren is a beautiful name for a beautiful baby x
Congratulations that's awesome.
Crazyyyy! We were at that taping! CONGRATULATIONS!🎉
New wrinkle for Season 7: BunnyBots ... See MoreSee Less
Spoiler alert: it’s cute but the mouth is a flamethrower and the tail is a vert. 😉
…I’m here for this. Bring it!
IT'S RABBIT FIGHTING TIME!
Fight between the rabbit Black Dragon's duck, and a Rusty plushie!
We need an exhibition match where all bots wear a stuffed animal. Or maybe not. They'd be pulling stuffing out of the box for weeks.
Here’s a good wrinkle, how about changing the judges?
Instead of a smooth floor, throw some loose nuts out there. Mad Max meets Battlebots.
I was in Vegas for 5 days and left on the 18th and wasn’t able to see a show 😢😢
Too bad Hal Rucker retired DUCK! or else we would’ve have a Malice vs DUCK! fight
Show sucks maybe this year they'll fire the judges. No need for them. Or maybe the committee will just award the giant nut to the runner ups last year
white rabbit!! bray wyatt in battlebots confirmed!!!
GIVE ME BUNNY GUNDAMS
A hopbot would be interesting.
When does the next season start? I never know.
Are these like badge bunnies?
Must be Rabbit Season this year
What's up doc? I knew I should have taken a left at Albuquerque.
For death awaits you all with nasty big pointy teeth!
What's the thread diameter and pitch of that thing?
Release the new Kraken! ... See MoreSee Less
Looking great Matt! I’m glad to see you back so soon!
I was so afraid we’d seen the last of Kraken! So glad that’s not the case! ❤️
I don’t know why….but one of my favorite teams
Neat concept. Spinner like most of the other bots, and if for any reason the weapon goes down, Kraken can still be a control bot and use the arena hazards. Will be interesting to watch this year.
Now this Kraken looks like it means business! I think the best improvement has to be that spinner weapon - that could be a game changer right there - it could do what the jaws couldn't do in the previous version. Now that being said, we have yet to see how it performs. Are we looking at a contender here, a lemon, or somewhere in between?
I’ve always liked Kraken, I just felt it needed something different. Looks great and good luck I’ll be cheering for you!
Good luck Kraken! You are always fun to watch and cheer for!
Jumping for joy to see your new bot!!! Cannot wait to see it in action! Love, love, love the new design, and I know you will bring your A game!!
Not that’s a improvement right there just it’s durable and more effective then fangs teeth wasn’t it this absolutely let’s see how it do
you have to paint it green, do not put things on it, because when they hit it, they fly away, it seems that parts of the robot come out, it seems that they destroy it more,
Yes! Release the Kraken! 👍🏻
So glad Kraken is back and ready to battle. Can't wait!
Amazing thanks for sharing, whoever designed the look of it it’s awesome
That’s a lot of serious pieces in this new version that’s looks like it’s going to destroy, we shall see.
Kraken 2.0 looks just plain evil
I am glad to see you back and this version looks good. I can't wait to see it battle. First opponent RUSTY haha
Kraken had a weapon now.
Hopefully the old Kraken durability is still there. If so this can be a mean machine
Looks fantastic! Glad to see you back.
Most anything will be a improvement from their old record of 6-16
Still get knocked out by Minotaur in the 1st round! 🤣🤣
Nice job, great improvement!
Oh boy I’m exciting see this in action!
Can’t wait to see it in action
