DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, March 2021) All good things must come to an end. It's coming up on the final blowout of the hit Discovery series BATTLEBOTS. This season, 60 teams from across the globe converged for the hard-hitting, steel splitting tournament in combat robotics. But only the top can survive and walk away with the preeminent prize in robotic sport: The Giant Nut. The competition is down to the final eight bots and it's an all-out robotic battle royale for the BattleBots World Championship. The season finale of BATTLEBOTS airs Thursday, March 11 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. It could be anyone's game as this year's tournament winds down. Each of the final matches will consist of two remote-controlled robots competing in a single, three-minute round with the goal to destroy or disable their opponent. If there is no knockout during the battle, a panel of judges will declare a victor. The World Championship tournament is a single elimination competition that culminates in the award of The Giant Nut.
