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.
