The Founder: Excellent. Our controls are fully functional.

However, one of the Ohm bots has been infected by a Novus Electronic Virus and starts firing at 29-11 or other nearby Ohm bots.

Novus Comms Officer: Alert! Logic fault has detected in infantry staging area!

The Founder: Identify the cause!
