Plot Synopsis

Each week, eight deadly bots face off in a "Sin City Slugfest" to win the right to compete in the ultimate Vegas showdown. In the first five episodes, bots compete in qualifiers, also known as the Sin City Slugfest. Each night starts with eight teams that battle it out. The finalist that makes it through that night's bracket 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. Victorious bots from the first five episodes join three Giant Nut winners in the final episode -- a winner-takes-all beat down called the Golden Bolt Tournament of Champions. The winner will raise the first-ever Golden Bolt trophy. The BATTLEBOTS crew -- Chris Rose, Kenny Florian, Pete "The Bot Whisperer" Abrahamson, and Faruq Tauheed -- are back for this series of six, two-hour episodes. In the season opener, "Let the Slugfest Begin," a new tournament kicks off in the fight capital of the world for robotic combat's hottest trophy: The Golden Bolt. But first the robots must face the toughest battle ever seen in Vegas: the Sin City Slugfest. Starring: Gigabyte.
