In Rapid React, alliances of three teams scramble to load cargo into the hub as fast as possible to prepare for launch. Teams can score on either high or low goals, with the high goal counting as double the points of the low goal. Nearing the end of each match, teams can try to climb the rungs of the hanger to score even more points. The higher a robot climbs, the more points that alliance will score. At the end of the game, judges tally up the scores to see which alliance won the match!
