Default is this how a AU Tarantula would pursuit after human target?

I found this fight scene between Batman VS Spider military robot!

and after seeing the robot spider being so very persistence on persecuting and fighting Batman, I was wondering if the AU Tarantula robot from ROS would behave in the same way or even far more stubborn persistence on hunting after a human target?

PS:

if there is a rule that prohibit to post YouTube video links in this forum, i apologize and you can delete this thread if you want because I broke such rule, again I'm very sorry if I broke a rule of "not post youtube links".

there is a wikia dedicated to the DC animated series where this robot spider appeared that give all the information of this 3 special episodes.

My impression is that Tarantulas are stealthier than that, and better at psychological warfare, but this could vary widely between individuals.

i think the reason the robot spider was not hunting Batman in a more stealthier fashion is because Batman was already aware of its present and star fighting back and run and then fighting again with all the gadgets weapons Batman have.

in the scenes were Batman tied up shut with his special strong string the metal doors and then the robot spider easily open tear apart those doors and then another second metal doors with its pointed legs, my question is, can the Tarantula AU unit do that if I too close shut a metal door and put something on it to keep it shut so to have more time to run away from the Tarantula Exterminator?

It has ST 25 and Monowire Talons, which add up to 6d-1 cutting with an armour divisor of 10. It will get through any plausible metal door, but the time that takes depends on the thickness (p. B558). It will be through a quarter-inch thickness steel door in 3 seconds, or 2 with good damage rolls, an inch-thick door will take 4-5 seconds.

and the scene were batman manage to lock or trap the robot spider's leg on the news paper big printer machine, could a human try to do that trap trick to a AU Tarantula Unit too?

I think the biggest differences here are that the Tarantula carries around a ranged weapon, and that they tend to be more clever than relentless... though that will vary. But I'd expect more subtlety in a Tarantula fight.

found another exterminator robot from Black Mirror tv Netflix series from Metalhead episode called them "dogs"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDP9jA6k_UE

these medium small sizes exterminator robots seems to behave more clever than the robot spider that was after Batman.
these Dogs robot can even do some things that i think Tarantula exterminator can't do like hack and driving a car to go after its targets and can recharge its battery with the sun when run out of them and can hack open electronic doors of abandoned houses and grab hand weapons, etc...

i think the Tarantula exterminator have and shoot bullets just like the Dog exterminator robot.
