Background Information

What's special about it?
It's my first competitive NanoBot.
How competitive is it?
It was once the NanoBot 1v1 champ - now it's around #16.


How does it move?
Splinter uses Stop And Go movement, but switches to Random Movement if it gets hit a lot in the first couple of rounds. It tries to keep a distance of about 220 from the other robot.
How does it fire?
It switches randomly between Linear Targeting with the other robot's velocity and Linear Targeting with a randomly determined velocity.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Splinter saves its movement mode and the total fire power it has been hit with between rounds.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
A splinter is tiny and painful.
Can I use your code?
I guess, as long as you don't copy-paste it. The code is under the terms of the RWPCL.
Does it have any White Whales?
Splinter has some trouble with nano Pattern Matchers, but its biggest Problem Bot is Mer (-40 PBI) :P.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
The nano linear cannon is used in tons of NanoBots. The movement is sort of a super-shrunk version of Puzzle's. I got the idea of calling onHitWall(null) for reversing from WeekendObsession, but I don't feel too guilty about it because WeekendObsession uses some of Splinter's ideas.
