Zugzwang's only match in BattleBots was against Destructobot. Destructobot went straight at Zugzwang, who seems to be circling around in its square. As Destructobot makes its way across the BattleBox, it suddenly turns back and was caught on the killsaws. The killsaws rips off one of Destructobot's side axe weapons and was still moving from the impact. Zugzwang stopped moving and was counted out. Destructobot won by KO without touching its opponent and Zugzwang was eliminated from the tournament.
As of 2015, it is unknown if Zugzwang participated the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
