All four robots started slowly, Flensburger Power started to take on Ansgar while Golem and Nasty Warrior came together. Nasty Warrior led Golem to the arena wall where Golem then shoved Nasty Warrior against an angle grinder. Golem then reversed into Matilda's CPZ, where Matilda repeatedly lifted the rear end of Golem up and down using her tusks. Meanwhile Nasty Warrior took on Ansgar, both robots' weapons acting to no great effect.
- "I don't know if Ansgar's actually moving, but at least they're trying to use the weapon and get the others going"
- — Jonathan Pearce
Flensburger Power had fled from the heat of the battle and lingered by the arena wall until the dying moments of the fight.
Shunt and Matilda worked together to flip Golem. Having not moved too far since running into the CPZ, Refbot proceeded to counting Golem out, the pit release was then pressed with Golem already near it. The three remaining robots met in the centre of the arena, Ansgar's weaponry flicking ferociously, while Nasty Warrior started smoking. Flensburger Power, having done very little throughout the whole battle, was pushed towards the pit by Ansgar witnessing Golem's demise, pitted by Nasty Warrior. The battle ended there but with three robots still mobile, it went to the Judges.
With next to no damage to report on, the win was awarded to Ansgar on aggression.
