Halo is a fork of Iron Bot.
- Bayesian Bandit‡
- Continual Online Evolution Planning (COEP)
- Potential Field
- On SSCAIT, Halo is named "Hao Pan" playing as Terran and "Fresh Meat" playing as Zerg (currently disabled).
- Some consulting by Nathan Roth.
Playing as Terran
Halo utilizes an array of strategies for each matchup, ranging from rush to macro ones. Notable ones include:

Playing as Zerg
Halo plays as Zerg under the name Fresh Meat. The initial development was based on Iron bot. However, it turned out that its crash rate was too high on BASIL (around 20%) which discouraged further development and resulted the author disabling it. Starting from 2019/05/30, a new Fresh Meat is enabled on SSCAIT and it is based on author's Zerg bot for AITT S2. It's quite simple at this time, as it only utilizes a few techniques such as Bayesian Bandit and COEP. Its performance on BASIL will be closely monitored and will serve for benchmark purposes.
