General Instructions

To get started please follow these steps:

  1. Download and read the BattleBots Design and Tournament Rules
  2. Download the "How to get on BattleBots" PDF
  3. Login or create an account
  4. Read ALL application instruction and questions thoroughly.
  5. Create a New Robot, and populate ALL FIELDS (you may save your work over multiple sessions)
  6. View the Submission Checklist tab on your Robot Dashboard page. It will describe all steps necessary for your robot to be considered.
  7. When your application is complete and you have completed all steps on the Submission Checklist tab, submit it for consideration and blow us away with your robot design.
  8. We'll review your application, and if acceptable we will mark it as "Cleared to Continued"
  9. Once you have been Cleared to Contunue you may then set your availability for upcoming Proving Ground dates for which you'd like to fight and/or upcoming Touraments like the World Championship.
  10. Look for an email from us if your robot is selected for battle!
  11. Any questions email us

Please note that we’re asking applicants to design a robot, not build a robot. As building a robot is dangerous, time consuming and expensive, you should only start building if you are notified by BattleBots that your application has been accepted, and you have completed other entry procedures that will be required by our broadcast partners. If you decided to build before this, you do so at your own risk.

BattleBots Inc. and its affiliates reserve the right to reject any application for any reason and without explanation.

Good luck!
