Compete with another hacker to steal files before they can.
"To win this battle you must grab files as they spawn in the central hosts and bring them back to your host. Reading the #FILE register will tell you the ID of the most recently created file currently in that host. Gain one point for every file your bring back to your host. Lose one point every time one of your EXAs executes a KILL instruction."
- The pattern by which new files are spawned is haphazard, but predictable.
- Your NPC opponent, deadlock, uses a control EXA to spawn multiple EXAs to collect files from the hosts. Killing the control EXA will allow you to defeat him quite easily; you will lose a few points for trying, but once it is dead, you can claim files at will.
