Welcome to a very special BattleBots Beat vignette for Halloween. For your enjoyment, but hopefully not for your pleasure, because eww, we bring you this tale of a plucky underdog doing anything and everything to try and shock the world. We call this story, "Conquering the Reaper."*
"6… 5… 4… 3…"
Welcome to the second [DFO] BattleBots Awards! With the rebranding this season of the BattleBots Beat, we (I) decided that we needed something cleverer than the generic "BattleBots Awards." But all the good fasteners were taken (the Giant Nut and Bolt by BattleBots, the Giant Screw was a thing that
Hey everyone, and for the last time this year, welcome back to the Beat! Last time we covered the right side of the BattleBots championship bracket, where Bite Force dominated and Whiplash drove daringly. They joined Lock-Jaw and Minotaur in the semifinals, the final four fearsome, uh, fighters, I guess,
Evening, lizard people. I'm hijacking the Friday evening open thread tonight because tonight's gonna be a fun night of sports. Well, for me. Well, if I didn't have dress rehearsal for a concert tomorrow night.
(It's 27 minutes. And 25 of those minutes you're waiting for a cadence. Also we will
Hey everyone, and welcome back to the Beat! Last week, we saw Tombstone's frame finally give up the chain, Bombshell doing what it seemed to be its only purpose in life, and Minotaur be Minotaur. This week the other side of the bracket comes into play as we see who
Hey there, and welcome back to the Beat! Last time, we had our hexadectet of hexadecimal destruction. Not to be confused with HexaDecimator. (That would be Hexy D to his friends, by the way.) Anyway, let's look at that bracket again:
Week 1 of the tournament covered the left side of
Welcome back to the Beat! For the couples of peoples who might have read this on other sites, welcome to our humble abode. Right here, right now, it's now or never, do or die, all the other clichés. It's the last chance for robots to make their cases to get
Welcome back to the Beat! For those new to the site or returning for the first time in a while (we survived the off-season!), this is the BattleBots Beat, a weekly recap of the most recent episode of BattleBots. Yes, BattleBots is a thing again. As a matter of fact,
Welcome back to the Beat! Last time out, we had Tombstone and Bronco join Bite Force in the lofty realm of 4-0 robots. We had Warhead's longtime spinning dome break. The same dome that did this! (Fight starts at 3:45)
And that fight, due to the damage to Nightmare, led to
Welcome back to the Beat! This week, we have what Kenny Florian calls a "minefield of explosive robots." There are THREE robots currently sitting at 3-0, and at least one of them will go to 4-0, as Bronco and SawBlaze face off. We have the unstoppable force against the immovable
Good morning, and welcome back to the Beat! Last time, Chomp got outchomped, Tombstone had a tough but not that tough fight against Whiplash, and we got some clarity about who's in, who's out, and who's on that bubble. If this right here is Episode 13, then by my math there
Welcome back to the Beat! Last time out, the Desperado Flash Tournament rolled through and Lock-Jaw became the first robot to punch their ticket to the BattleBots World Championship. Oh, and somewhere along the way we made the sidebar, so that's cool too. This week, we've got some legitimate bracket-making
