Background Information

What's special about it?
Its gun is unique.
How competitive is it?
In the top 100 of RoboRumble General 1v1.


How does it move?
It uses Raiko's movement.
How does it fire?
It uses a Self-Organizing Observation Log gun. When a wave hits, the Log records how far and in what direction the enemy has travelled since firing the wave. Along with that Observation, a number of situational parameters are stored. The Log is ordered in such a way that similar Observations will become neighbours. When aiming, the Log searches for such a neighbourhood of Observations and uses these to calculate the most likely future position of the enemy.
How does it dodge bullets?
Well...ehm... ask Jamougha :-)
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
Melee? What's that?
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between matches: Nothing. Between rounds: the SOOL.
