Lightning (ライトニング Raitoningu? ) is a Sniper Trigger.

AppearanceEdit

Lightning is light in color, except for the barrel and the pistol grip. Overall, it has a futuristic design, with a squared off forestock extending well past the muzzle and matched by a similar protrusion on top of the barrel, making it vaguely similar to a railgun, Lampyris's in particular. Unlike the other Sniper Triggers, it has a digital scope located on the left side which automatically frames the target in a hexagon, in addition to displaying other information.[2]

OverviewEdit

Since Haruaki Azuma was Border's first Sniper,[3] this Trigger could not have existed until four years prior to Yūma's enlistment.[4]

AbilitiesEdit

Lightning is the fastest Sniper Trigger, boasting excellent muzzle velocity, with average, but good, range, rate of fire and lightness, but lacking bullet power.[5] Consequently, it is the only sniper rifle that can be stopped with a normal Shield,[5] and in fact its shots have been effortlessly blocked with Shields with a much wider surface[6] than that necessary to deflect Egret.[7] It is primarily used to chip away at the enemy.[1] This is made possible by its relatively high rate of fire, which is the highest among Sniper Triggers,[5] and which allows the user to fire multiple shots in rapid succession, enabling them to injure even on guarding opponents[8] and to provide cover fire,[9] even at the range of a Gunner.[10] Exceptionally skilled Snipers are capable of feats such as hitting multiple Meteora projectiles shot with a grenade launcher before they reached the ground.[11]

According to Reiji Kizaki, Border Sniper Triggers are very well made, so if the wielder has good aim, they will not miss.[12] In particular, Lightning is known to be easy to hit with thanks to its muzzle velocity.[5] When used by someone with high trion levels, its bullet speed is increased even further.[13] Weather conditions that impair Egret's effectiveness, such as low visibility preventing long-range sniping, are not as meaningful when using Lightning.[14] As the lightest and wieldiest sniper rifle, it can be used to shoot while on the move.[15]

UsersEdit

See also: Lightning Users

Lightning has 12 users among official agents,[16] excluding those members of branches who do not participate in Rank Battles.[17] Among them Chika Amatori is notable for combining Lightning with Lead Bullet,[18] a tactic only she, thanks to her masive amount of trion, is able to utilize in combat.[19]

TriviaEdit

  • Excluding Chelidon's arm cannon form, Lightning is the only firearm Trigger in the series not to have a real life counterpart.
