Hikaru was more than a little surprised when, after adjusting the ZAKU Warrior Light Armor's parameters, he was thrown straight into a battle. He had no idea that there was an online multiplayer to this system. Perhaps it was something added later? Still, it seemed oddly implemented. He wasn't even given the option to decline. Hikaru would have minded were it his main GBN machine or one of his other builds, but this particular one? "Ah well, maybe it'll be fun."
He took note of the terrain, quickly noting that the land surrounding the city was too exposed to serve as cover. It reminded him of the ancient UCGO computer game. The ZAKU have to use the city which it found itself in for cover. He initially sought out an overpass or something but found this to be a city much like those in Europe - ancient enough for roads to be forced to conform to the terrain and old buildings rather than the other way around. Roundabouts were present, though the inclusion of traffic lights at them indicated an American touch. It was a noncommittal mix of old and new. The pilot guided his machine into the shadow of a taller building, careful to turn down the light of his optical sensor to reduce visibility. Getting trapped between buildings was a bad idea since he would need to retain his mobility, so he stayed near some of the wider roads.

Noting the beginning of the encounter and Shield and Beam Machine Gun at the ready, he decided to wait. It wouldn't be long before he saw a DINN take to the air in the distance, and he clicked his teeth. An aerial unit had an advantage with its ranged armaments. Though he could use cover to his advantage, it wouldn't be ideal. No, he needed to be careful with this. The pilot took one of his machine's grenades and tossed it into the distance from his cover. In a more constrained area between several buildings, one which the DINN might be able to corner a hypothetical enemy, the flash grenade went off.
"Come on. Fall for it. Use up your missiles, be drawn in closer, something..." Hikaru uttered, hoping his enemy had an itchy trigger finger.
