|-||High muzzle velocity|
Egret is a rifle with a black stock and forestock, and a stop front sight on top of the muzzle. The scope has a target dot reticle.
Egret has the best range of all Sniper Triggers. In extraordinarily capable hands, it could hit a target from 1 kilometer away. Furthermore, the higher the trion levels of the user, the more its range can be increased. Egret also boasts optimal bullet speed, power and accuracy. Reacting to an Egret shot after it has been fired is regarded as a commendable feat. Since very few individuals are capable of it, predicting the exact target, timing and direction of an Egret shot is considered the only way to reliably protect oneself. In fact, Egret can easily break a Shield with a single bullet, unless there's a significant discrepancy in trion capacity, and although a focused Shield can stop it, it needs to be sufficiently concentrated, or it will be ineffective. Full Guard is also capable of withstanding an Egret shot.
According to Reiji Kizaki, Border Sniper Triggers are very well made, so if the wielder has good aim, they will not miss. This was proven true when Isami Tōma and Tōru Narasaka managed to hit the small, shifting interstices in Hairein's defense.
|Twin Snipe (ツイン狙撃 Tsuin Sunaipu?)||The user activates two Egrets, one through the main and one through the sub, and, after taking aim with one eye per scope, fires them simultaneously. This technique can be used against two different targets, or against only one for increased firepower. Its only user is Ken Satori.|
|Acrobatic Twin Snipe (アクロバティックツイン狙撃 Akurobatikku Tsuin Sunaipu?)||An alternative version of Twin Snipe performed while the user is in motion and out of balance. Ken Satori, its sole user, was capable of killing a Trion Warrior with it while falling head-first, without using the scopes.|
See also: Egret Users
Egret has 18 current users, including the Gunner Takaaki Katagiri. In fact, all users of Sniper Triggers from B-rank and above have had Egret in their Trigger set at some point. The only Sniper who currently lacks one in her Trigger set is Chika Amatori, who has recently replaced it with Hound. This list excludes those members of branches who do not participate in rank battles as well as the All-Rounder Reiji Kizaki. However, all 135 Snipers in Border are given an Egret to practice during joint training, including C-ranks.
The Egret user with the most Solo Usage Points is Isami Tōma, the no. 1 Sniper and no. 4 solo combatant. Another notable user is Tōru Narasaka, the no. 2 Sniper. However, despite the gap in points, both were allegedly outmatched by former Sniper Mirai Hatohara with this Trigger.
