|Type||Normal (Composite Bullet)|
|Classification||Gunner ( + )|
Hornet looks identical to Hound mid-flight, but it can be distinguished from it thanks to its superior homing ability, which, depending on the movements of the target, could lead to a more varied flight path.
Hornet strengthens Hound's homing factor, allowing it to curve at sharper angles as it pursues the target. Bullets from one same cube can be given different settings to be made more difficult to block or avoid. Since they look identical to Hound, the target may be lured into resorting to evasive maneuvers which are unsuited to Hound's enhanced homing factor. Like other composite bullets, it is capable of damaging a trion body and cause moderate damage to constructs not made out of trion.
Hornet can be utilized in trion cube form or fired through a Gun Trigger. In the latter case, the only known specific is that the firearm is set to shoot exclusively Hornet; in the former, the user conjures two Hound cubes, one from the Main and one from the Sub, and merges them into a single Hornet cube. The process lasts between one minute for inexperienced agents and two seconds for Shooters of Izumi's caliber, during which the user is vulnerable to attack; for this reason, Hornet cannot be used uniformly in this configuration.
- Like many other Gunner Triggers, Hornet may be named after a missile, the AGM-64 Hornet, commonly known simply as Hornet.
- Alternatively, it may be derived from the homonymous insect.
