“. . . . . .Hey, hey, this must be a lie, right?”

Actor Hiraizumi, leading the Intensive Hunting Club’s troop, was bewildered by the All-Rounder he saw through his telescope.

“You guys, don’t mess with the Actanoid in the swamp.”

“We won’t. It’s too suspicious.”

What seemed to be a rental All-Rounder was nonchalantly climbing up the swamp.

It was too defenseless. No, having a rental All-Rounder in this place was too unnatural.

If that thing stands out, it will be scrapped in an instant. There won’t even be a base left; it would be riddled with holes.

That’s because the swamp is currently in the middle of the battlefield between their 『Intensive Hunting Club』 Hiraizumi’s team and the Kaien Heavy Industries-affiliated clan 『Kaien Squad』.

This battle revolving around the Order-series Actanoid 『Renegade Warrior』 has become a standoff across the swamp, with both sides preserving their main forces.

If they go down to the swamp and try to climb the opposite mountain, they will be sniped, so both are hiding Actanoids in the middle of the mountain.

The Intensive Hunting Club, true to its name, mainly hunts, so it has the advantage in mountain warfare. They have many members who can snipe across the swamp without AI assistance.

On the other hand, Kaien Squad, backed by Kaien Heavy Industries, has well-equipped machines and weapons. They are expected to snipe accurately with AI assistance.

Both sides are lying in wait, looking for each other’s openings, in a touch-and-go situation, scouting with Lannoids, etc.

In the middle of such a situation, a defenseless All-Rounder, harmlessly climbing the swamp.

It made no sense.

“Well, it’s probably a decoy.”

Hiraizumi muttered as he watched the All-Rounder’s movements.

It was a rental machine, so the affiliation was unknown. But, if it’s a cheap and slow All-Rounder, a large company like Kaien Heavy Industries wouldn’t mind if it’s destroyed.

“If we shoot it, our position will be pinpointed, and something like a suicide drone will come rushing in.”

“But still, that All-Rounder is so defenseless. It’s like an Actor, seriously.”

“If only the Renegade Warrior would be lured by it, things would be quicker.”

Rango, the Actor leading Kaien Heavy Industries’ troop, confirmed the All-Rounder climbing the swamp reported by his subordinate and frowned.

“. . . . . .What’s that?”

“Is it a decoy set by the Intensive Hunting Club?”

Circumstantial evidence confirmed it as a decoy.

But Rango was not convinced.

“The Hunting Club is a civilian Actor clan. Even if it’s a slow machine, it’s too expensive to use as a decoy. Is there an organization backing them financially. . . . . . ?”

“In my opinion, we should deal with it as a decoy.”

Rango nodded to his subordinate’s advice.

“Yes, that’s right. Shooting it and having our position identified isn’t worth it.”

Their opponents were the Intensive Hunting Club. A clan that ranks among the top three in Japan in terms of combat ability.

Fortunately, or not, Fizū, the representative of the Intensive Hunting Club, was nowhere to be seen. Probably a second-tier unit.

Even so, Rango’s true feelings were that he wanted to strike first.

A subordinate muttered in disbelief.

“Even so, it’s annoying to think that we would bite on such bait. I’m not Trigger Happy, hm, maybe. . .”

While saying this, a subordinate who realized the possibility becomes speechless, and Rango and the others shudder.

『Trigger Happy』, a nickname for a mecha that exists in the Order-series Actanoid.

Just recently, Mecha Mecha Guidance Commander, the representative of the private clan 『Order Actor』, who declared the extermination of 『Renegade Warrior』 along with Kaien Heavy Industries, controls it, an Actanoid that is currently classified as the most powerful and cannot be classified.

A dangerous gun maniac who shoots both heavy machine guns freely and unhesitatingly screams, “The sound of gunfire is ASMR.” That person won’t miss that target, the only visible All-Rounder.

Rango immediately orders his subordinates.

“Expand the search range! Put off the mountain across from us where the Intensive Hunting Club lurks, and check if Order Actor is there!”

If 『Trigger Happy』 is here, capturing it could be a greater achievement than 『Renegade Warrior』.

After all, they’re staring at each other while sensing each other’s true identity but without revealing affiliation, unable to face the 『Intensive Hunting Club』 directly. 『Trigger Happy』 might be incapacitated by a stray bullet, and the situation is such that it could be captured without blame.

Rango thinks. If it were him, he would definitely move to capture 『Trigger Happy』. The 『Intensive Hunting Club』 would probably do the same.

So, that All-Rounder is not for them, but bait to lure out Trigger Happy.

“. . . . . .How did they know that Trigger Happy was approaching?”

It’s enough to deploy an All-Rounder as bait. They must have known from the start that Trigger Happy was coming here.

Preparations were made, but Rango still didn’t feel confident in the assumption that Trigger Happy was lurking nearby.

To begin with, he can’t even think that the secondary team of the Intensive Hunting Club would fight and win against Trigger Happy.

Is there something else overlooked? Or are they trying to involve them in the Trigger Happy battle and aim for the fisherman’s profit?

Various possibilities run through his mind when a gunshot rings out.

A thunderous noise like thunder had struck. Bullets fired in quick succession rain down on the All-Rounder climbing the swamp.

The quiet swamp turns into a hellish kiln that echoes with gunfire.

The identity of the thunderous noise was immediately understood by Rango, who has a long history as an Actor.

“It’s Trigger Happy! He’s really here!”
