Kr'Gag took careful aim. The gun would compensate for atmospheric disturbance, all it had to do was pull the trigger.

The railgun whined briefly before the flechette exploded the air, and the target's head.

"Ha ha! Kr'Gag wins!" It shouted, before a confused expression painted its face. "What? Why aren't you lying down?" It said to the bipeds that now surrounded it.

"I killed your lead mind. Drones should fall down."

"E're! Sarge. Bug fink's we're a 'ive mind."

"Can it Jenkins. Grab the weapon."

Utterly stunned by the revelation that humans were individuals, Kr'Gag handed over the rifle quietly.

    Haha! Sometimes I do wonder if certain humans really are mere drones. Thinking of sport hooliganism for one. But glad to be an individual, I think.🤔

    There are SOO many drones. We're a really crap species. Competent at most things, master of none. Except killing. We're very good at that.
