BattleEdit

Its only attack is a simple physical blow, so it is no threat. It is weak to electricity. Machine Gun (as well as Laser Cannon) starts the battle as invisible, meaning it cannot be targeted, but its AI script will still run as normal. Once Warning Board has signaled its warning, it will declare WBGroup:Active = 1 (see Warning Board's AI script for more details). Whichever out of the Machine Gun and the Laser Cannon gets to their turn first, that will be the first weapon to appear out of the Warning Board. Once either weapon retreats, it is no longer determined by which weapon's turn comes first for them to appear, but rather the AI of the weapon in question; if the Machine Gun retreated, there is a 50% chance of it reappearing on the next turn, and a 50% chance of the Laser Cannon appearing on its next turn (assuming it is still alive).

StrategyEdit

Bolt magic is effective, but hardly necessary as regular attacks can finish off its low HP.
