The ICM-Gunner is a conventional 'bot that has been modified. It's arms have been replaced with military 'gun arms' where the lower arms and hand actuators have been replaced with conventional autocannons.

The biggest difference between the ICM-Gunner and any other gun bot is that the Gunner repeats first person shooter trashtalk while engaging foes.
