A Bit More Explanation

Hopefully this can be updated for the games short description, but just as a bit of explanation for Baktun 13, each form the boss generates is dependent on the forms that preceded it. When a form is defeated, the next form keeps the best pieces (even going so far as keeping their exact locations for pieces that performed exceptionally well) and removes the worst. New pieces are then added at random with random appendages and gun types depending on the wave number. In short, each time Baktun 13 is played will be different than the session before it.
