The following 4 competitors took part in the heat
|Merlin (Seeded 6th)|
Merlin (6) Vs HannibalEdit
Hannibal tried to flip Merlin missing, but flipped it in the 2nd attempt. Merlin self-righted and fought back turning the Belgian machine over but it self righted and carried on. Merlin then turned Hannibal over again where it was unable to self-right due to it being low on gas, Merlin took advantage of this by flipping it out the arena.
Hammerhead 3 Vs DisconstructorEdit
Disconstructor started off slowly getting its disc up to speed and Hammerhead 3 approached it cautiously before hitting Disconstructors disc recieving no damage and flipping it in the air. Disconstructor went head-on into Hammerhead 3s flipper again but still didn't cause any damage and was flipped up in the air. After the fight ended, it went to a judges decision and Hammerhead 3 was the winner.
Winner: Hammerhead 3
Merlin (6) Vs DisconstructorEdit
Both robots were off, Disconstructor got its disc up to speed, but Merlin got round its side flipping it but failing to turn it over due to the gyroscopic affect of the opponents disc. Disconstructor struggled to get any hits on Merlin with its disc as Merlin kept flipping it around the arena failing to turn it over. Merlin eventually flipped Disconstructor against the arena wall where it had no way of getting off and was counted out.
Hannibal Vs Hammerhead 3Edit
Hammerhead 3 got the first flip in on Hannibal nearly getting the Belgian robot out the arena, but it landed back on its wheels and carried on. Hannibal managed to retaliate getting around the side of Hammerhead 3 getting a flip on it, but it rolled back on its wheels only to be thrown high by Hammerhead 3 having nearly been thrown out the arena. Hannibal tried to self-right, but was unable to due to the arena wall being in the way.
Winner: Hammerhead 3
Merlin (6) Vs Hammerhead 3Edit
As activate was called, both robots were off and Merlin immediatly flipped Hammerhead 3 over where it tried to self-right but couldn't.
