Background Information

What's special about it?
MyFirstRobot is a Sample Bot that is very similar to the default code (located in robocode/templates/newrobot.tpt) when creating a new robot through the Robot Editor. The only differences are the contents of the onHitByBullet() and onHitWall() event handlers.
How competitive is it?
It is the fifth-best sample bot in MeleeRumble (after Walls, Crazy, SpinBot, and MyFirstJuniorRobot). It ranks at #379 out of 399.


How does it move?
It moves in an oscillating "seesaw" pattern. It moves forward 100 units, then backward 100 units.
How does it fire?
It attempts to fire a 1.0-power bullet whenever it scans an enemy.
How does it dodge bullets?
When hit by a bullet, it turns perpendicular to the bullet. This logic is quite bad, as the angle-to-turn is not normalized, and the robot stays in the same spot while turning.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
No difference.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Nothing and nothing.

Additional Information
