Watched a few episodes and I was hooked.  This is much better than a Pacquiao fight.

I love this show.  It's like MMA without the bloodshed but with lots of destruction.  :)

Season 5 was full of surprises. Those expected to be the winner did not make. Hydra though hated was expected to that it pero natalo.

Witch Doctor is my favorite.  Hyoershock sucks but probably one of the best looking bots. While Biteforce is still the bot to beat imho.

Not the best bot but perhaps the one with the best driving skills-Whiplash!

I like tombstone. Simple design but very destructive.

Minotaur is my favorite - small but terrible.  I liked how it ate up the much larger Bronco one wheel at a time.

Most fun to watch is Beta (hammer-time!) and Tombstone for sheer destructive mayhem.

Sampler:  Minotaur vs Blacksmith.  Listen for the hum as Minotaur spools up its drum for high kinetic energy impacts.

Yeah, that's what I do, specially when they changed formats when the episodes where 1.5 hours long.  First 2 seasons had shorter episodes, and the co-hosts were eye-candy (Molly McGrath and Samantha Ponder).  :P

Naiinip na ako sa bago season. Got hooked with BB many years ago kaya nasundan ko every year ang seasons via YT. After the live episodes wala pa yata 8 hours meron na sa YT. Sayang wala last year si Biteforce kayang kaya sana mag back to back.

Outside of Youtube, where do you guys watch Battlebots?  Netflix only as the 1st 2 seasons.

From the newer bots, I like Sawblaze (fast and a really powerful hammer saw - magaling yung driver na Asian) and Shatter with it's steel-puncturing main weapon.

Sa suki ako nanonood.  Wala pa rin kasi sa Discovery+ dito. 

Impressive debut rin from Sawblaze doing a shocking demolition of Minotaur (one of my fave bots).

And looks to me like teams have figured out how to defeat Tombstone...

Yung mga bots with horizontally rotating mass main weapon like Tombstone and Gigabyte, you can make their main weapon work against them by merely pushing said weapon against a wall and the hit will send said bot flying.  Also weakness ni Tombstone are its exposed wheels.
