Get your popcorn ready. It's robot fighting time!
Here's how it'll go down:
First 5 Episodes: Sin City Slugfest
In the first five episodes, bots will compete in qualifiers, also known as the Sin City Slugfest. Each night starts with eight teams that will battle it out. The finalist that makes it through that night's bracket will then have to face a BattleBots Legend. And it doesn’t end there.
Whichever bot reigns supreme, whether it’s the BattleBots Legend or the Slugfest finalist, secures a spot in The Golden Bolt Tournament.
Final Episode: Golden Bolt Tournament
Victorious bots from the first five episodes will join three Giant Nut winners to duke it out in the final episode's Golden Bolt Tournament of Champions.
The winner will raise the first-ever Golden Bolt trophy.
