Motto: "I make them eat lead or eat the dirt!"
With close to twenty years in the Army, REPEATER never got any higher in rank than Staff Sergeant. His performance in the field was always top-notch but he could never hack it in the garrison. He's not a barracks soldier and not officer material. But send him out in the bush beyond the furthest base camp, and you'll find that he's the one the other grunts want to soldier with. They know he's the one who's going to bring them back in one piece!
As a S.A.W.* machine gunner, REPEATER has to draw enemy fire while his unit moves into their offensive or defensive positions. His automatic weapon allows him to maintain a sustained volume of fire with a combination of subdued tracer and ball cartridge ammunition. He follows the tracer-on-target (TOT) observation method, and can fire from the shoulder, hip, or underarm, as well as from the ground in the bipod-steadied position, if needed. It often comes down to one versatile man and his weapon being the only things keeping COBRA forces pinned down long enough for the team to make their extraction point.
