An All-Rounder (万能手(オールラウンダー) Ōruraundā?, lit. Universal User) is a Border agent who excels in the use of both Attacker and Gunner Triggers.

SpecificsEdit

The All-Rounder position is one of the 9 official positions available to Border agents, one of the 7 directly involved in combat, and one of the 3 a C-Rank trainee cannot work towards.[1] All-Rounders must have at least 6000 individual points with both an Attacker and a Gunner Trigger.[2] This definition extends to Attackers who can also fight as Shooters.[3] A combatant that uses different types of Triggers, such as an Attacker who uses Sniper Triggers, is not considered an All-Rounder.[4]

Prominent sub-classes are Close-Range and Middle-Range All-Rounders, depending on the All-Rounder's preferred fighting style and weapons.[5] An All-Rounder who reaches the 6000 point mark with at least one Attacker, one Gunner and one Sniper Trigger earns the title of Perfect All-Rounder (完璧(パーフェクト)万能手(オールラウンダー) Pāfekuto Ōruraundā?, lit. Perfect Universal User).[6]

OverviewEdit

All-Rounders are renowned for their versatility and reliable fighting style. They can fight at multiple ranges, peppering the enemy with bullets from a safe distance or breaking their defenses with Attacker Triggers at close quarters, without any glaring weaknesses to speak of. Their flexibility however comes with a great deal of responsibility, and an All-Rounder is required to possess an outstanding eye for tactics and a cool head in battle, making it a position reserved for ditinguished agents.[5]

List of All-RoundersEdit

Currently, there are 15 known All-Rounders in Border, corresponding to those who participate in Rank Battles. Out of them, only 3 utilize Gunner Triggers as Shooters.[1] Reiji Kizaki is the only Perfect All-Rounder in Border.[6] Tetsuji Arafune, who has reached Master Class with both an Attacker and a Sniper Trigger, is striving to become the second.[6] Tsukihiko Amō was an All-Rounder prior to obtaining a Black Trigger.[7]

TriviaEdit

  • Due to the average level of Border agents increasing, some have advanced the suggestion that the All-Rounder threshold be raised to 8000 points.[2]
  • All-Rounders seem to be ranked as both Attackers and Gunners/Shooters.[8]
  • All-Rounders are the only combat-oriented position not to have a dedicated class of Triggers, with the possible exception of Spotters.
  • In the databook, Reiji is listed as a Perfect All-Rounder instead of simply an All-Rounder.[9]

  2. 2.0 2.1 Daisuke Ashihara: An All-Rounder is ‘an agent who has earned more than 6000 solo points in both Attacker and Gunner Triggers respectively’. Right now Border’s overall level is on the rise and there are those who say it should be raised to above 8000.
