Aggrobot managed to escape and attacked Razer again. Razer tried to retaliate, but at this point, the crushing arm malfunctioned and raised to its maximum height, whereby the rear spike lifted its wheels off the ground. Unable to move, Razer was pushed into the CPZ by Aggrobot, where both robots took damage.
