An infantry man in the UK has been punished under military law for turning his gun on his comrades during a desktop simulation.

The soldier, from 3rd Battalion, the Rifles, apparently grew bored after two week's of the Army's Unit-based Virtual Training, and decided to kill his mates instead, the Daily Mail reports.

The griefing squaddie was in charge of a vehicle in the simulation, and used its weapons to destroy other vehicles and force them off the road, ‘killing' a number of his colleagues.

While his fellow soldiers, who were reported to be fed up after a long stint of virtual training on laptops, thought the PvP action was funny, his commanders did not, and charged him with disobeying orders.

The soldier was punished with a weekend of guard duty.
