A gun with two modes of function. It belches flame when it fires. First trigger shoots projectiles from bullets, second trigger shoots napalm grenades.

HmmÉperhaps this refers to a kind of Halo player who stays close to walls? This would seem to be a disadvantage, though, but perhaps it's something along those lines?

She's trapped on the Halo, obviously. Either that, or busy fighting off aliens she found with SETI.

Does this have anything to do with the Marine being a Jjaro, as I keep asserting? (Not surprising me, as I suspected this long ago. But, don't worry, I'm probably wrong. ;) )
