Databank Entry[]

A long-ranged bioengineered weapon, capable of launching a serrated "disc" which pierces through hostiles but bounces off surfaces. Even though the weapon does no targeting of its own, the creators have left its eyes and parts of its brains intact. This seems to indicate that they have some functionality that could not be automated on a cellular level. Cruelty as motivation is possible although unlikely based on current evidence. By holding [UNKNOWN ERROR], the projectile can be charged, even though the feedback from this may limit the suit's capacitors, lowering movement speed.

Based on the evidence of teeth-like protrusions and their proximity [UNKNOWN PARAMETER] the disc itself appears to be salival accretion. The rapid process that must be involved [DATABASE MISMATCH] from similar known species. Divergence in this case seems related to instincts that prioritise personal survival above all other concerns.
