Paul Kline won this round by a clear 15 points with his SnowDust, which was the only submitted warrior to take advantage of the known boot distances of all the warriors. David Moore's third successive second place stretches his advantage at the top of the leaderboard by another three points.

Bomb dodgers were by far the most popular strategy this round, with Moore, Ian Oversby, Ilmari Karonen, John K Wilkinson and Beppe Bezzi all using them in one form or another.
