Psychokiller met Dreadnaut in the first round. Dreadnaut drove in first, but the robots rarely did damage to each other. Psychokiller began circling the flame pit before driving into Sir Killalot, who snapped off its axe. Dreadnaut then pushed Psychokiller back over the flame pit, immobilizing it before the house robots attacked. Shunt cleaved a number of holes in its bodywork, and used its scoop along with Sir Killalot's lance to flip Psychokiller over, with Jonathan Pearce noting visible damage on both sides, before causing more damage to the underbelly of Psychokiller.
