  Tonight, the round of 16 concludes. Who will join Bombshell, Poison Arrow, Minotaur, and Bronco?
 
#1 Tombstone
Roboteer: Ray Billings
Folsom, CA
#16 Brutus
Roboteer: Adam Bercu
Somerville, MA

The last time Tombstone was in the Battlebox, it only took 45 seconds to get the job done. They've been looking forward to this match. It's going to be the heaviest weapon against an aggressive wheel all up in your face.

WINNER BY KO: Tombstone. He awaits the winner of this match...

#25 Nightmare
Roboteer: Jim Smentowski
Bradenton, FL
#9 BETA
Roboteer:
John Reid
Oxford, OXON

This is the first time we're going to see the legendary spinner in action in a full match, and it's up against BETA's hammer. Death Roll has three sections: a self-righting tail, a heavy body, and a spinner at the head. Captain Shrederator is a full-body spinner that lost its first round last year. In the battle.. There goes the tail... and there goes the head!

WINNER BY KO: ... by the skin of its shrapnel, BETA

Lucky
Roboteer: Gary Gin
Ottawa
Beta
Roboteer:
John Reid
Oxford, OXON

It will be Beta's British hammer vs. Lucky's Canadian flipper. So far, it's a draw... but then the flipper is stuck... and then unstuck. This is going to the judges to be assessed on control, damage, strategy, and aggression. Joining Fon and Jessica at the table: our guest judge Mythbuster & roboteer from the old school Adam Savage.

WINNER BY JUDGES' UNANIMOUS DECISION: Beta

#28 Mega Tento
Roboteer: Lisa Winter
Berkeley, CA
#12 Yeti
Roboteer: Greg Gibson
Wasilla, AK

It's the matchup of the dueling spinners. Can the big bug pull the big upset?

WINNER BY KO: Yeti. He gets the winner of our final match.

#4 Bite Force
Roboteer: Paul Ventimiglia
Mountain View, CA
#13 Chomp
Roboteer: ZoŽ Stephenson
Los Angeles

Last year, Bite Force was the big winner. While it's been quietly munching up the competition, we've seen nothing but action from Chomp's side. It's spinner vs. hammer, and heavy vs. heavy. This one will go to the panel. Joining Alison and Fon on the panel: YouTuber Michael Stevens.

WINNER BY UNANIMOUS JUDGES' DECISION: Chomp!

The changing of the guard is complete! Next time, we crown a new champion.
