Reghindetz attempts to distract Border's forces by a feigning an attack on the city, but to no avail. Meanwhile, the fight between Gatlin and Ratarikov, and Border's top 4 Attackers continues, with the end drawing near.
Karasuma and Kizaki use their Triggers to eliminate the swarm of Idras heading their way. Ninomiya orders Inukai to support them after they've run out of Trion, when he detects the enemy shifting. It is revealed to be Reghindetz, who is heading towards the town. Yomi reminds him that it was against the captain's orders, but Reghindetz states that he has no intentions of attacking; rather, he would get Border to spread its defenses, and attack at the weak spot. However, several Border agents realize that it's probably a distraction tactic, and Arashiyama reasons that since Jin did not predict any civilian casualties, it most likely is. Fuyushima mentions that he can teleport agents to the town if need be. Reghindetz is angered when no agents come after him.
Tachikawa and Konami continue their battle with Gatlin, while Kazama fights Ratarikov. Kazama teleports, and Ratarikov informs Gatlin of this. It does not prevent Konami from successfully employing the same tactic, and uses it to launch a surprise Meteora attack and distract Gatlin. Tachikawa attempts to use Senkū, but Gatlin throws a piece of debris at him. At the same time, Ratarikov attacks Kazama while both are in mid-air. As Kazama blocked the attack, Ratarikov deduces that Kazama could not teleport in air. Tachikawa uses Senkū once more, and Murakami attacks him from behind. Konami uses Meteora again to augment the attack. It is to no avail, as Gatlin comes out unscathed. Konami says that they would be unable to beat him head on. Gatlin analyzes each of the Attackers and their role; Konami uses powerful attacks to leave openings for others, Murakami foremost defends the ship and sometimes comes into attack; Tachikawa uses attacks between the attacks of the other two, controls the battle, and uses long-range attacks too; and Kazama supresses Ratarikov. Tachikawa predicts that Gatlin will get serious as his two of his comrades were defeated. Kazama prioritizes being the sole opponent of Ratarikov. Gatlin decides to use a certain attack to end the battle.
