|"Seems [Mother] has intercepted a transmission of unknown origin."
A "Splattergun" is a type of shotgun that earned its nickname due to its effectiveness to unarmored targets at a close range.
In 2192, the Bionational Corporation sent one of its top men, Massey, on an intercept mission to stop competition from the Terran Government on acquiring a bio weapon that the company already possessed, Xenomorphs. The agent, Massey; armed EXP-Series combat androids with Splatterguns when dealing with United States Colonial Marine Corps resistance on the target vessel, The Benedict. It was very effective in subduing resisting Marines in the assault.
