Plot Synopsis

BATTLEBOTS: BOUNTY HUNTERS brings the top robots from all over America to battle it in the ultimate robot combat out against a BATTLEBOTS legend, including Tombstone, Bronco, Witch Doctor, Son of Whyachi, Beta and Icewave. Each of the them have many knockouts and have smashed countless competitors before them. In each episode, challengers compete for the right to become the Bounty Hunter and fight a Legend. The prize: a unique place in BATTLEBOTS history, and the major share of a $25,000 cash prize payout in every episode. Like in the regular BATTLEBOTS series, each episode highlights the design and build of the competing robots and profiles the teams behind them. Competitors come from all types of backgrounds -- from families to university students and everything in between. Every machine is homemade and constructed from a variety of materials with custom-built weaponry to destroy the competition. The first four episodes of BATTLEBOTS: BOUNTY HUNTERS debuted on Monday, January 4, 2021 on discovery+, the same day the streaming service launched:

"Bronco's Back!": Bounty hunting season is here, and eight teams are facing off in a new style of BATTLEBOTS tournament. Heavy hitters Captain Shrederator, Madchatter, Chomp, Rotator, and more face off for a shot at Bronco, the greatest flipper-bot of all time.

"Predator Becomes Prey": The Bounty Tournament semi-finals bracket is set and the final four contenders are locked, loaded and ready to take down the most celebrated launcher bot in history. There's no time to rest, and failure is not an option if they want a shot at immortality.

"Cold as Ice": Eight brave challengers face off for a chance to become the Bounty Hunter and get a shot at the legendary horizontal spinner bot Icewave. A $25,000 purse is at stake and both veterans and newcomers are prepared to do whatever it takes to go the distance.

"Hunt Or Be Hunted": The four remaining teams ramp up their strategies in their bid to claim a piece of the $25,000 prize and a shot at Icewave. Tires are torn, bots are brutalized, and tears are shed as the journey to the dangerous horizontal spinner bot intensifies.

After a three-week break, BATTLEBOTS: BOUNTY HUNTERS returned with two new episodes on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT on discovery+:

"WITCHHUNTING": There's a huge cash bounty on the head of Witch Doctor, and eight hopefuls are determined to win it. But first they must defeat each other. Valkyrie, Huge, Subzero, and Malice are among the stars setting out on the quest for glory.

"The Doctor Is In": Four teams died, four survived. Only one will become the Bounty Hunter and earn the right to face the legend that is Witch Doctor. The prize is more than the huge cash sum at stake -- it's the chance to cut down a BattleBots icon.
BATTLEBOTS: BOUNTY HUNTERS made its linear television debut on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
