When a gamer reaches the Mystery Weapon Box and press the button, the computer inside the box will change the weapon emulation. Likewise, when set to Mystery Armor Box the gamer can get a new armor emulation.
And it could be any of the weapon emulations that are included in SATR.
When activated, the gamer’s gaming gun’s current weapon emulation will change to a random one. This process takes a few seconds. The gamer cannot re-use the Mystery Box for 90 seconds.
The fascination with the Mystery Box is what you think you might get, perhaps a better weapon, compared to what you really get.
Battlefield operators can also set the mystery box to change the weapon emulation within a gun class. For example, if a gamer is using a gaming gun which is set as one of SATR's 12 hand-gun emulations when the gamer presses the mystery box button the computer will change its emulation another hand-gun emulation.
So with a press of a button, the gamer's emulation can go from an Enfield Revolver with 6 bullets and 18 spare magazines over to a Beretta 92FS (also known as a M9 Pistol) which has 15 bullets with 11 spare magazines.
A gamer might get an emulation upgrade. But a gamer might also get a downgrade!

"SATR programming is working great. We particularly like the Master Controller's ability to change gun classes and indoor/outdoor (since we do both). Our gamers really like the ability to randomize the gaming guns with the Mystery Box. It enables us to change up a traditional game – keeping it fresh. We discovered that the new mission moves everyone back to the original class and weapon setting – which was a brilliant programming decision! Thanks"Jim Makowske from Michigan, USA
