Thanks for your reminder. I rewatched the episode and
you are right - the GM Sniper ventured out of the Big
Tray and sniped a target from behind, in the woods -
with the cooling and refueling hosts and cables

I've watched it run up the hills (that side shots),
and get ready inside a pit. During that period it has
no cables or hosts attached, because they are not long
enough to reach that far.

I've updated NA's GM Sniper page, added 3 extra photos
on this issue. Check it out:
