This put ARTILLERIA PESADA into the quarterfinals where it faced feared drum spinner Touro. This fight started with both robots spinning up, ARTILLERIA PESADA managed to get the first attack in, popping Touro, however Touro then managed to get to the side of ARTILLERIA PESADA, and deliver a pop. This did nothing however, and ARTILLERIA PESADA skillfully dodged away from Touro, which then managed to get it cornered near the side wall. However a missed attack by Touro then allowed ARTILLERIA PESADA to throw the Brazilian menace back a few feet, and allow ARTILLERIA PESADA to get away. ARTILLERIA PESADA then gave chase to Touro, however whilst trying to outmanouver the Brazilian drum spinner ARTILLERIA PESADA turned too tightly, and flipped itself. Although invertible ARTILLERIA PESADA now had a great deal of exposed ground clearance, and was less maneuverable as well. This allowed Touro to come in, and first deliver a hit that peeled up the bottom armor of ARTILLERIA PESADA, and then follow that up by delivering a massive hit that sent ARTILLERIA PESADA flying, dislodging its weapon belt as well. Touro then came back in, and delivered another hit to its wounded opponent before ARTILLERIA PESADA tapped out.
