Season 3.0

Iron Soldier's Season 3.0 appearance.

iron Soldier's first ever match was against Malvolio. The two robots collided near the center of the BattleBox, and the collision bent Malvolio's spinning hammers. Iron Soldier moved behind Malvolio and Malvolio tried to ram Iron Soldier with its spikes, but one side of its drive was immobile and it only turned. Malvolio managed to hit Iron Soldier after this, but after the hit Malvolio bounced off and went under the spikestrip. At that point the drive gave out and although Malvolio couldn't move, the fight went to the judges, who turned in a 41-4 decision for Iron Soldier.

Iron Soldier then had Huggy Bear to fight. Huggy Bear won on a 32-13 judge's decision and Iron Soldier was eliminated.

Season 4.0

Iron Soldier's Season 4.0 appearance.

During the match against Outlaw, both bots had troubles and neither showed much control. Iron Soldier got stuck under the spikes, but managed to free itself. Then Iron Soldier got stuck again, this time, though Outlaw rammed it free. But Iron Soldier got stuck a third time, and when Outlaw rammed it free, it stopped dead. Outlaw was still not much control, but when its opponent was sitting there immobile and it could line up a shot, it was very strong. All this helped Outlaw score a 43-2 victory.
