We at Hexbug HQ have been receiving a lot of questions about the HEXBUG BattleBots Arena. It is one of our most popular products and tons of fun, but we want to make sure all your questions are answered for the best gameplay possible.
To start, if you didn’t know, HEXBUG BattleBots were designed after the television series that fans know and love. You can tune in to all-new episodes of BattleBots on the Discovery Channel (Friday nights at 8 pm ET) and the Science Channel (Wednesday night 9 pm ET). It’s robot fighting time!
In the comfort of your own home, you can watch action-packed matches unfold inside your very own arena. This set includes a fold-out game board, realistic protective walls, two push activated pulverizing hammers and two battle-worn infrared remote control BattleBots (Witch Doctor and Tombstone). Batteries are included (two AG13/LR44 batteries for the remote and three AAA for the BattleBot). This product is recommended for children 8 years of age and up.

How To HEXBUG: BattleBots Arena
Below we feature a new How-To HEXBUG “Hexbug BattleBots Arena”. In the video, we will show you how to assemble the arena, demo some BattleBots gameplay, and let you see the fun in action!
When assembling the arena, make sure to secure the outer walls into the slots of the gameboard. Then, slide the plastic panels onto the tops of the walls. If you have any issues with the board not laying flat, we suggest laying a few heavy books on top of the board and letting it sit overnight.
Pairing your remote, follow the steps below:
1.) Select your channel. On each remote, you will see four different channels. Make sure you pick a channel different from the other players.
2.) Turn on your robots one at a time. Press the hex power button on the bottom of the robot to activate.
3.) ISOLATE your robot from other controllers in the area when pairing.
4.) Then press any button on the controller. The first remote to signal the robot will be the first to connect with it.
5.) Turn robot off/on to reset pairing if necessary.
There are two buttons on the front of the remote that help you steer left to right and forward and backward. The button on the top of the remote activates your weapon.
You may need more help pairing your remotes. If so, below is a great instructional video.

In conclusion, you now have all the tips ready to make you a BattleBots fighting pro!
