Every Thursday, the Hero’s Duty characters have a secret competition between themselves. Throughout the day, their death-counts are tallied by Calhoun during gameplay, and for every time they die, they have to take a shot at Tapper’s that night once the arcade closes. The first to go down has to foot the bill. Markowski is never good at this contest, which is why he was the only one still in Tapper’s that night.
Being the guide for the First-Person Shooter, Calhoun is unable to be killed by the Cybugs. To them, she doesn’t seem as appetizing, so only the weak ones go after her because there’s no competition for the food. This is why she never partakes in the contest and only tallies because her nature gives her an unfair advantage.
