Best of the BestAired on May 29, 2013
Many have fallen short of the title; now sixteen All-Stars compete to become the next Top Shot. In the first challenge, marksmen climb ropes to fire the SVT 40, shimmy up a pole to shoot the Larue Tactical OBR and balance on an unstable platform with the FAL ISS. Two face elimination, where the fierce M32 Grenade Launcher threatens to knock a player out of the running. Colby Donaldson returns as host.
Tricks of the TradeAired on Jun 05, 2013
For the first time in Top Shot history, trick shots will determine who stays and who goes. Reminiscent of a Wild West Show, three teams of five perform the Annie Oakley shot; knock back bowling pins, and shoot pipes out of mannequins’ mouths. Showy shots challenge two marksmen sent to elimination, where only one will progress while the other is sent packing.
Pick Your PoisonAired on Jun 12, 2013
Fourteen remaining marksmen face an old challenge with a new twist. Players must pick a rival to shoot against in a head to head, high-speed showdown featuring the Sig Sauer P229. However, when two buddies head to the elimination round, friendships are put to the test. Nothing short of perfection will allow them to edge out their competition and guarantee their futures.

Shooting DiceAired on Jun 26, 2013
The fate of twelve rests on a roll of the dice. The competitors break into squads for a fierce side-by-side shoot out with the 1875 Remington Pistol. But fortune doesn’t favor two, who must fire against the clock with the Ruger 1022 Rifle in an old-fashioned shooting gallery challenge. One will fall short and one will continue on to battle it out for the ultimate prize.
The Mile ShotAired on Jul 10, 2013
Long-range sniper shots are a Top Shot staple, but a challenge of this magnitude has yet to be seen. Marksmen are put to the test with the Barrett M-Rad. But the wind sends their bullets astray and two flunk out, forced to face elimination. Credited with killing off the Wooly Mammoth, the prehistoric Atlatl will lead one competitor’s future to extinction.
Thread the NeedleAired on Jul 17, 2013
A returning challenge receives a daring makeover, literally throwing contestants for a loop. The spin of a wheel determines their bodies’ angle as they aim with the Rutgers Security Six Revolver. But two veteran marksmen do not deliver, sending them to the elimination round where they must cleanly fire a bullet through a narrow tube. Failing to shoot on the straight and narrow will unseat one and preserve his opponent for another day.
