Tonight’s Battlebots episode is a special one for me as this will be the first time I can predict who might win each battle. Battlebots in seasons past has never showed the brackets for the upcoming episodes so you are usually informed who’s fighting who a minute before the match starts.
And now that we have seen (mostly) all the robots in action we can predict who might beat who! So, using my historical Battlebots knowledge and my impression for each of the fighters, here are my predictions.
Stinger vs. Warhead-Stinger Wins by Judges Decision
Warhead fought Bite Force in the previous round and lost to it by judges decision. Stinger actually won its battle against a full body spinner and came out almost unscathed. Stinger will push Warhead around, probably get knocked around a bit by the spinning drum but will ultimately be the stronger, more sturdy contender.
Bronco vs. Plan X-Bronco wins by KO in about a minute and half
Bronco has a fast and strong flipping arm while Plan X is a one sided (aka can’t work on its back) robot. The minibots might distract Bronco but it fought Witch Doctor in the last round and still won. Plan X also got dismantled hard by Wrecks which makes me think it’s not a sturdy robot. All Bronco has to do is come in behind and get the flip. Might take a few tries but it will get it.
Warrior Clan vs. Ghost Raptor-Warrior Clan wins by KO in a minute
Ghost Raptor did not impress in the previous round (even not counting the entanglement). Warrior Clan was able to flip Nightmare and it will do it again for Ghost Raptor. The minibots will distract Ghost Raptor and Warrior Clan will slide on in and give it a nice good flip. Easy KO. And I might be wrong but I don’t think the spinning blade is low enough to hit Warrior Clan but we’ll see.
Icewave vs. Chomp-Icewave wins by Judges Decision
Icewave is certainly a sturdy robot has shown in its battle against Razorback but I’m willing to bet that Chomp will be able to tank the hits and keep on coming. Truth be told, this battle I’m most unsure about who will win as I can easily imagine Chomp tanking Icewaves hits, grab onto it and take it for a ride. I can also imagine Icewave’s blade incapacitated after one too many bad hits. Regardless, I still lean towards Icewave as I can imagine it to do enough damage to win the Judges over.
Can’t wait for tonight!
