Taichi Betsuyaku is a moderately good Sniper. During training he ranked 13th at least once, while practicing stealth and target acquisition, which speaks for a certain degree of skill at hiding.[1] His role in the team is generally to support the ace, but when separated from him, Betsuyaku joins forces with his captain and fights at mid-range,[2] a strategy that seems to be unique to Suzunari First. The two have come up with multiple offensive and defensive collaborative tactics.[2] When on his own, he is prone to getting carried away and being reckless in combat.[3] Nonetheless, he can be surprisingly observant, noticing that Rei Nasu's Viper bullets were slower than usual.[4] His unique way of thinking can on occasion be an asset to his team, which he demonstrated when he came up with a strategy to blind their opponents by turning on and off the lights in a mall at night, a plan that was reputed to be both unpredictable[5] and extremely effective.[6] Like Murakami, Betsuyaku will prioritize Kuruma's survival over his own even if it goes aganst the interest of the team.[7]
