Splinter only appears in easy and normal difficulties. He is not encountered in other difficulties.
Splinter's skill type is fair, which means he is 25% accurate when firing, has a reaction time of 0.4 seconds, and can detect footsteps. When facing an enemy target, he will hold fire for one second to aim.
Splinter buys a Scout when he has money greater than $2750. If unaffordable, he will buy a random weapon depending on the amount of money he has. He prefers to use the Glock rather than purchasing other pistols. He uses the Scout for long and medium ranges and the Glock for close battle.
Splinter is a quite passive bot. In hostage rescue maps, he likes to camp near the hostages. When facing more than one Counter-Terrorist, he will switch to his Glock and run away. However, if there are teammates with him, he is more willing to confront assailants.
Splinter is a member of the Sweden Arctic Avengers.
