For unknown reasons, static and its upgrades are known to chain to and hit the shooter occasionally. This can especially happen when they are near their target with no nearby enemy tank to chain to. However, this has also been observed to happen even if there are more available enemies to chain to, resulting in unnecessary damage and the loss of the ability of hitting an extra enemy. Oddly enough, static will never attempt to chain off of teammates and only the shooter themselves is vulnerable to this erratic behavior.
