I noticed recently that the AI card for some units allows them to take equipment which is not allowed in Battle Mode. For example, the Psycho AI card says that they have fragmentation grenades, but in the Battle Mode Force List they can only take Molotov Cocktails. Similarly, the Knight Patrol Blade has a Laser Rifle on their AI card, but in battle mode isn’t even allowed to carry rifles. Is this intentional?
Battlemode is a tournament mode and therefore AI would normally not be used with it, that being said just because players can’t use items that are off their lists does not mean npc’s have same limits
