Gordon McSweeney was an American soldier who fought in WWI. McSweeney was raised in a devout Presbyterian family. During his time in the war, McSweeney was armed with a flamethrower.
McSweeney thought he was doing the work of God by fighting the Confederates and a Mormon insurrection in Utah. He was known for being exceedingly pious, never swearing or even reading anything except the Bible, viewing newspapers were corrupt. McSweeney viewed the Presbyterianism as the one true branch of Christianity and believed most people around him, especially the enemy, were bound for eternal hellfire.
McSweeney pulled off a number of feats of combat prowess, including destroying a Confederate barrel by firing his flamethrower into the viewing ports and later destroyed a river gunboat with explosives.

Battle vs. Minene Uryū (by SPARTAN 119)
Gordon McSweeney looked around the abandoned factory he had walked into. Little did he know, when he entered the building, he had been transported through space and time. McSweeney turned the corner around a rusting machine to face a mysterious woman with one eye and her hair a purple color that didn't seem natural.
Minene Uryuu turned to the soldier armed with the flamethrower, and assumed he must be a "diary holder", so she opened fire with her MP5 submachine gun, but missed, the shots flying over McSweeney's head.
"In the name of the Lord and the United States of America, I shall strike thee down!", McSweeney said as he fired his flamethrower.
Minene dodged the streak of fire, and said "Bringing pain and death in the name of God. I'LL KILL YOU FOR YOUR CRIMES!"
Minene turned the corner and fired her MP5, hitting the fuel hose, but not detonating it. McSweeney threw off the damaged Flamethrower and drew his Colt M1911, shooting the MP5 out of Minene's hand.
Minene took cover behind a now silent conveyor belt and drew her SIG Sauer P230, as a Mk I grenade landed next to her. Minene picked up the active grenade and threw it back. The grenade landed near McSweeney, but he took cover behind a machine and avoided the blast.
Minene climbed onto a catwalk and fired her pistol at McSweeney, grazing his shoulder. McSweeney moved from cover to cover and placed a TNT charge on a support of the catwalk.
Minene jumped off the catwalk as Gordon detonated the charge. As she jumped, she tossed an M67 grenade at McSweeney, but the grenade landed far short of him and detonated without harming McSweeney.
Minene felt something strike the side of her head hard, and turned to see that McSweeney had struck her with the brass knuckes of his trench knife. Minene blocked Gordon's slash with her combat knife, and, with her other hand, placed a remote C4 charge in the chest pocket of McSweeney's uniform.
Minene than kicked McSweeney between the legs, dazing him, before she ran to a safe distance and detonated the charges. McSweeney's upper body was vaporized by the explosion, a red mist filling the air.
Minene retrieved her MP5 and left the scene of carnage.
WINNER: Minene Uryuu
Minene took this for multiple reasons. For one, she took most of the edges where they mattered, in mid and explosive only missing out on the handgun edge. She dominated the x-factors with a better mental health and agility. Gordon was the type of guy that Minene was motivated to kill due to his religion and her pure hatred of it.To see the original battle, weapons and votes, click here.

Battle vs. Azaka Kokutou (by SPARTAN 119)
The mortar round flew in above Gordon McSweeney and exploded in a ball of flames. McSweeney saw a flash of light and appeared in a building that looked like a church.
"Am I in heaven?", McSweeney asked.
A girl walked into the church and spoke in a language McSweeney didn't understand. It sounded like Japanese.
"But the Japanese were pagan infidels", McSweeney thought, "Why would they be in heaven?"
McSweeney examined the mysterious girl closer, she was wearing what looked like some kind of school uniform with a long skirt. She appeared to have a rosary beads around her next.
"A Japanese Catholic?", McSweeney thought, "Unusual, but hell bound all the same."
"Who are you", Azaka Kokutou asked the mysterious foreigner in the army uniform, who had appeared in the chapel of Reien Spiritual Academy, "Do you speak Japanese? Hold on, I'll get the English teacher."
The girl turned around and exited the door. "Hold on, papist", McSweeney said as he aimed his flamethrower at the girl, "I order you to tell me where I am at once, lest I give you a preview of the fate that awaits you after death!"
Azaka stared from threatening face of mysterious gaijin to the flamethrower in his hands. Azaka realized the man intended to kill her. She had to defend herself.
"FoLLte", Azaka said, speaking a musical notation she used to shorten her incantations as she swung her hand at McSweeney. Azaka missed, setting fire to the pews behind her.
"This...", McSweeney thought, "Must be a test from God."
"Prepare to return to from whence you came, demon", McSweeney yelled, firing his flamethrower at Azaka.
Azaka Kokutou jumped through the door and rolled to her side, avoiding the stream of flames, though her skirt was set on fire. Azaka screamed in pain as the flames burned her leg, and immediately rolled on the ground to extinguish the flames.
Bystanders screamed as fled as they saw McSweeney walk out of the burning chapel, flamethrower in hand. McSweeney saw Azaka rolling on the ground and drew his trench knife and walked over to her.
After Azaka extinguished the flames, rolling her burning dress on the dewy grass, she got up and found herself staring at McSweeney, who now held a trench knife in hand. McSweeney struck Azaka with the brass knuckles attached to the hilt, disorienting her.
McSweeney thrust the blade at Azaka's heart, but instead, the blade got stuck in her hand. Azaka said "AzoLto" as she made an uppercut with her other hand, her fist coated in flames.
The flaming fist did not detonate the flamethrower's tank, but it did burn McSweeney's face, buying Azaka time to run away.
McSweeney shot a jet of flame after her, but missed. McSweeney advanced and fired again, missing another shot.
Azaka turned around, near the maximum range of his flamethrower.
"MezoFoLLte!", Azaka yelled.
Flames erupted on McSweeney's fuel tanks, and seconds later, McSweeeney exploded in huge ball of flames. At that moment, Gordon McSweeney found out if what he believed about the afterlife was true.
Azaka walked away from the fireball, limping on her burned leg. She would have to get help, but how to explain what had just happened.
WINNER: Azaka Kokutou
Azaka had better agility and psychological health. She was able to avoid Gordon's attacks long enough to use her own powers, and her better mental state allowed her to avoid making mistakes that Gordon was more likely to make.
