- What's special about it?
- Its gun is unique.
- How competitive is it?

- 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.

- Between matches: Nothing. Between rounds: the SOOL.
