AIRED:
The UK champs of the 2nd Wars, Panic Attack, are back and ready for action! We all know Panic Attack has been in Robot Wars longer than anyone else has, and it's getting very old. Now with a new panel attachment on its back end and being seated 8th for the second time, Panic Attack may have another chance to win, but there's a lot of good robots out there. Will Panic Attack win? We'll find out!

Team Captain: Jason Snow With: Farren White and Alec Dick Fight 1: Panic Attack Vs Mega Morg Vs Edgehog Vs Spin Doctor House Robots: Mr. Psycho and Cassius Chrome Panic Attack slammed into Spin Doctor, nearly flipping them. Edgehog axed Mega Morg. Panic Attack then pushed Spin Doctor into the Pit Button and flipped them over. Spin Doctor couldn't recover. The Welsh boys then ganged up on Edgehog as Refbot counted Spin Doctor out. Edgehog started axing away at the yellow robots. Mr. Psycho then started hammering Spin Doctor and then carried the robot to the floor flipper, but then Panic Attack got in the way. Spin Doctor escaped...sort of. The House Bots surrounded Spin Doctor and Mr. Psycho was finally able to place Spin Doctor onto the floor flipper and launch them through the air. Mega Morg and Panic Attack then shoved Edgehog down the Pit. The Welsh boys, Panic Attack and Mega Morg go through! Fight 2: Tough As Nails Vs BOD Vs Disc-O-Inferno Vs Robochicken House Robots: Shunt and Matilda Tough As Nails, the Dutch robot looked awesome. And it showed. Tough As Nails pressed the Pit Button, grabbed hold of Disc-O-Inferno and immediately pitted them right at the start of the match! Tough As Nails then started choking Robochicken (in theory), but Robochicken kept using their flipper to get out of Tough As Nails' grasp. Eventually, Tough As Nails got a grip on them and pushed Robochicken into the Pit as well! However, Robochicken automatically advances, because they had flipped BOD over and they were immobilized. The audience were beginning to love Tough As Nails. So the Dutch robot placed BOD onto the Drop Zone, where some bowling bowls came falling out of a box onto BOD. Tough As Nails then tried to pit BOD, but there was no room! Tough As Nails moves on along with Robochicken. Special Event: Featherweight Melee: Micromute Vs Rampage 2 Vs Gianto Vs Whipper House Robots: Matilda and Sir Killalot Rampage and Whipper started ramming each other. That's it...just ramming. Meanwhile, Micromute was stuck in Killalot's CPZ and was nearly crushed by the 616 pound bot. Gianto didn't seem to be doing much either. Micromute got out of the CPZ and ran right into Matilda, driving right underneath her. I bet Micromute's getting a great view of the action under there! Or maybe not. Whipper became immobile when their power link popped out. Rampage 2 pushed them around the arena. Micromute was counted out by Refbot since they seemed to be immobilized. Sir Killalot then picked Micromute up and placedf Micromute right over Matilda's flywheel. The robot that took the team 3 months to build was destroyed. Adam, the Micromute captain, walked out of the box, shaking his head. Oh dear. Micromute was dropped into the Pit. But it turns out all the other Featherweights were immobile. Refbot counted out Gianto because he had a feeling Gianto was immobilized first, so Rampage and Whipper move on the Featherweight Championship. Fight 3: Panic Attack Vs Tough As Nails House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Mr. Psycho Panic Attack could not get a grip on Tough As Nails. They were too big to lift up. Tough As Nails kept grabbing onto Panic Attack and pushing them around the arena. When they tried to push the UK champion onto the flame pit, Mr. Psycho hammered the robot like a Nail that is Tough. Eventually, all the pushing caused Panic Attack's forklift to break. Tough As Nails pushed Panic Attack into the CPZ where Sgt. Bash grabbed hold of them and shot flames at them. Mr. Psycho then hammered Panic Attack, but they escaped. Panic Attack tried to push Tough As Nails down the Pit, but then time ran out. Tough As Nails won on a judges' decision. Fight 4: Robochicken Vs Mega Morg House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Mr. Psycho These two teams shared a hangover at a bar the night before the competition. In the battle, these two teams were so drunk, that Mega Morg drove right into the arena wall. Robochicken's glove-head fell off, but then Robochicken got underneath Mega Morg and flipped them. Mega Morg could not self-right. Robochicken started ripping Mega Morg up with the spinning disc. Mega Morg were then counted out. Psycho hammered Mega Morg once the clock reached 10. Mega Morg was then placed onto the Drop Zone where a washing machine fell down on top of them and fell apart. Sgt. Bash tried to pit Mega Morg, but then the washing machine fell into the Pit and there was no room! Robochicken moves on to the Heat Final for the first time! Heat Final: Tough As Nails Vs Robochicken House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt Robochicken got several BIG flips on Tough As Nails. Tough As Nails was invertible, but the anttena was underneath the robot, causing Tough As Nails to lose the signal to the controller. Robochicken tried to get Tough As Nails out of the arena, but they were running low on Co2. Tough As Nails hit the Pit Button and the chicken nearly drove in! Tough As Nails was finally able to grab hold of Robochicken and push them around the arena for a bit. Robochicken's spinning disc scratched Tough As Nails' nice blue paint. Tough As Nails grabbed hold of Robochicken again and pushed them around the arena just as time ran out. CEASE! It was close, but the Dutch boys, Tough As Nails won the judges' decison. Tough As Nails goes through to the Series Semi-Finals!moreless
