The four units begin fighting each other in the mall.
Yuitsuka asks Arashiyama why a dark map was chosen. Arashiyama explains that this forces the operator to have to constantly turn visual assistance on and off when switching from dark to lit areas, which can become difficult for large teams. Osamu orders Chika to leave the mall. He has Yūma and Hyuse unite and then get as many points together as possible. Azuma Unit decides to enter the mall. Kitazoe encounters Murakami, and Kuruma rush to back him up. Inukai finds it hard to believe that Suzunari First would have wanted all the groups to converge in the mall, but Arashiyama points out that this makes things harder for snipers. Betsuyaku heads to the lower floors, away from the fighting, baffling the commentators. Yuitsuka reasons that he is doing this to keep the operators on edge. As a firefight between Kitazoe and Kuruma Unit ensues, Osamu is noticed by Okudera, and this draws the attention of the rest of Azuma Unit. Murakami reveals a Black Kogetsu.
