BattleBots You Should Watch Out For
With the Round of 16 finalized, we take a look at the three robots they should watch out for since they can surely bring some trouble
Unlike other BattleBots, Black Dragon doesn't have a big size. In fact, it is a small robot that has a very lowered design. This means that this machine is very hard to lift or toss around. It has already taken down some big machines such as Captain Shrederator, Bloodsport, Minotaur, War Hawk, and more.
Hydra has a very amazing record. It has four matches that it won through knockouts. It is considered a veteran flipper since it can easily toss or flip around its enemy bots. Previously, Hydra was able to defeat bronco, another efficient bot-flipper in the popular American series.
On the other hand, Ribbot is a very unusual bot since it doesn't have a metallic look. Instead, it has a frog-like appearance, which is why it is called "Ribbot." Its favorite tool is called "Torque Wrench," which is used for more than two years now.
