Ōji decides to target Oki and Chika, forcing Ikoma Unit to have to defend its sniper. Osamu has wires set up where Ikoma Unit will gather themselves, and plans on meeting up with Chika. Oki and Chika begin running towards their respective teammates, and Kashio pursues her. Chika uses Lead Bullet Hound albeit to no effect, and Kashio counters this with a preconceived strategy where he bombards her with bullets, causing her to use her shield, and in effect, unable to use Hound. He comes to a sudden stop when Chika hops to make it seems like there are wires around. Osamu uses this hesitation to shield Chika, allowing Chika to hit Kashio with Lead Bullet Hound. Osamu uses Thruster to cut down Kashio, taking out Kashio. Oki manages to shoot off Yūma's arm while Ōji manages to find Osamu.
- In the tankōbon version of the chapter, when Mizukami said ‘Asteroid’ but was actually shooting Meteora, Yūma’s eyes have now been fixed to show that his Side Effect did pick up on Mizukami’s lie. Also, Osamu's Bagworm is on the verge of disappearing in the tankōbon version to adhere better to the two triggers at a time rule.
