War Machine carries One Tin Soldier across the arena.

War Machine's first bout was against One Tin Soldier. Both robots drove out and One Tin Soldier hit War Machine with its spikes, doing no damage. War Machine then utterly dominated One Tin Soldier, slamming it into the wall, pushing it into the killsaws and the pulverizer, and just driving One Tin Soldier around. Eventually, One Tin Soldier lost drive power in one wheel, and then time ran out. War Machine won a unanimous 45-0 judges' decision to advance to the second round.

War Machine vs. Snake

It kept ramming Snake as Snake tried to attack, and smoke started coming out of Snake. Eventually, Snake gave up and attempted to attack the pulverizer as it was counted out. War Machine won the fight by KO and advanced to the quarter-finals.
