Pitbull pushed it into the flames, where Sump Thing was immobilised. Pitbull could not bite it, but Sergeant Bash used its cutters and almost cut Sump Thing in half! Sir Killalot picked it up and put it in the pit. Winner: Pitbull Fight 2: Abaddon Vs Technophobic Before this battle Abaddon had to replace the ball in its tail with a lighter castor. This significantly reduced its maneuverability. At the start of the battle it was picked up by Technophobic, but Technophobic could not flip it. Abaddon used its rotavator blades to rip off some of Technophobic's armour. Technophobic responded by ripping off Abaddon's castor and pushed the robot onto the flame pit. Abaddon was stuck on the grille of the flame pit because its tail was trapped in the mesh. Meanwhile Shunt attacked Technophobic, and then lifted Abaddon out of the flame pit. Techonphobic then pushed it into Sir Killalot. The match went to a judge's decision, which was rightly given to Technophobic. Fight 3: General Carnage Vs Robocow This match started slowly with both robots spinning around each other. General Carnage slowly picked up Robocow, and pulled it near the pit. Robocow escaped but was then attacked by Matilda's chainsaw. General Carnage then pushed Robocow into Sergeant Bash. Matilda drove in and broke Robocow's tail off! Sir Killalot then picked up Robocow and flipped it. Winner: General Carnage Fight 4: Shark Attack Vs Behemoth (Seated 6) In this short battle Behemoth drove into Shark Attack's side twice, but could not flip it. This was not the case the third time, where it lifted up Shark Attacked and turned it over. Another one of Behemoth's classic short battles. Winner: Behemoth Round 2 Fight 1: Technophobic Vs Pitbull In this battle Pitbull started better and pushed Technophobic into the edge of the arena. Both robots moved around each other before Technophobic lifted Pitbull up. Unfortunately it could not turn it over. Pitbull came charging back and drove at the edge of the arena, where its jaws got clamped to the railway sleeper at the side. It was finally freed when it was hit by Dead Metal and Sergeant Bash. Pitbull escaped and pushed Technophobic onto the flame pit. The flames reached the petrol engine and Technophobic caught fire. Winner: Pitbull Fight 2: General Carnage Vs Behemoth Both robots manoeuvred round each other before Behemoth lifted up General Carnage and tipped it over. It then attacked it with the rear axes. Dead Metal then attacked General Carnage, and Behemoth attacked the house robot. Shunt tipped General Carnage back over, but it was then lifted up by Sir Killalot and put in the pit. At the end of the battle Dead Metal went for revenge attack on Behemoth, slicing through him with his new saw. However, cease was called and the fight ended. Winner: Behemoth Heat Final: Pitbull Vs Behemoth This was a controversial battle. At the start Behemoth immediately flipped Pitbull, to reveal the 'PTO' written on the bottom. The house robots then turned Pitbull the correct way up. Both robots pushed each other and Behemoth was escaping from Sir Killalot when a giant spike came up from the arena floor and knocked Behemoth on its side. Pitbull drove over some smaller spikes next to it, but just bounced up and down comically instead of being flipped. Sir Killalot and Dead Metal attacked Behemoth. At the end of the battle, Behemoth was flipped by another part of the arena floor that lifted up and threw it across the arena. Amazingly it was still running, but the 'cease' command had already been given. Winner: Pitbull (Curse the House Robots!)moreless
