Bot Fighting is an underground robot fighting sport in which contestants build small remote-controlled robots and have them battle for supremacy.
The rules are that the players uses their robot to fight and that the winner would keep the money from both sides once his or her bot has defeated the opponent's bot. The robot that wins a round will keep fighting until all other bots are destroyed or it is destroyed. To play a round the players must pay in cash and hand it over to the ringleader for safe keeping until the round is over, and the paid money is handed over to the winner.
While a popular sport in San Fransokyo, betting on bot fights are illegal and could result in imprisonment. The sport is inspired by real-world robot combat style games.
