BattleBots Season 5.0 heavyweight tournament tree

The seventh BattleBots tournament was to be the final event in the partnership with the Comedy Central cable network. BattleBots season 5.0 was filmed May 22 - 27, 2002 at Treasure Island - San Francisco, California. Comedy Central replaced BattleBots in their programming schedule with a puppet show.

This event expanded on the practice of allowing veteran ranked competitors to gain an advantage by sitting out the early rounds of the tournament. A scant 8 or 9 slots were available in each 'round of 32' for unranked 'bots.
