Izumi is able to create Tomahawk in only 2 seconds. By exploiting its ability to travel along preset routes, like Viper, Izumi can bombard the enemy without giving away his exact position by curving the trajectory of the bullets. Thanks to the radius of the blasts, they can be effective in combat without direct lines of sight, just by guessing the general location of the opponent.
Nasu can fuse Viper and Meteora cubes in a short amount of time to create Tomahawk. She used it with tremendous skill since the first attempt in Rank Battles, thanks to her ability to freely set Viper's trajectories and to guess how the target will move, despite this composite bullet being extremely difficult to control. As her most used offensive Trigger is Viper, the target may not notice she is using Tomahawk at first, increasing the chances her attack will be successful. The wide explosion radius and modifiable patterns of this composite bullet enable her to shoot it without a direct line of sight, and thus without exposing herself to enemy fire. She first used it in chapter 102 (episode 46 in the anime).
