The third targeting challenge, which was established in 2007 in an attempt to achieve better preformance, by testing against certain reference bots.


  1. The Challenger must remain stationary all the time.
  2. The Challenger is only allowed to feed the fire() method(s) the constant 3.
    • This often results in at least one bullet per round fired with energy lower than 3 though.
    • Which means no energy management whatsoever.
  3. There are 10 Reference Bots, none of which fire, few of which do any ramming.
  4. The Challenger meets each reference bot in battle over 500 rounds.
  5. The Challenger's score against each reference bot is calculated like "challenger_bullet_damage / rounds".
    • Average the scores against each reference bot to get the total score.

Fast Learning

Same rules as above, except:

  1. The Challenger must not save any data between battles.
  2. The Challenger meets each reference bot over 15 seasons of 35 rounds each.
