How competitive is it?
Not very, 33rd in nano melee rumble.


Strategy

How does it move?
I call it random because it doesn't fit in any other categories, but it doesn't use that many calls to Math.random(). Basically just moves around turning left and right, in roughly circular shapes.
How does it fire?
Linear Targeting
How does it pick a target in Melee?
Takes the closest one, or if it scans one 10 pixels closer it switches to that one, to prevent thrashing between targets. After it shoots, it switches to the nearest target.
