The fifth BattleBots tournament continued the partnership with the Comedy Central cable network. BattleBots season 3.0 was filmed May 22 - 28, 2001 at Treasure Island - San Francisco, California.

This was the first BattleBots event in which veteran ranked competitors were allowed gain an advantage by sitting out the early rounds of the tournament, generally entering at the 'round of 32'. This practice would become quite controversial. Later tournaments had a majority of late-round slots reserved for ranked 'bots.
