What Happened & Our Opinion
Kirito Searches for Death Gun
Kirito is no longer paralyzed by fear. He starts checking the list of BoB contestants, trying to identify who Death Gun really is. However, Kirito is unsure if he'd recognize Death Gun's real name, even if he saw it. He questions Sinon, asking her if any of the contestants listed are new,considering Death Gun only appeared recently.
She says that 3 are, narrowing his list of suspects down from 30. She becomes more interested in Kirito's story, but doesn't press for more information.
The Main Tournament Begins
When the tournament begins, all participants are deposited on a map in random locations. While tracking two different opponents, Kirito and Sinon are brought together, but Kirito catches Sinon unawares. Pinning her down, he asks her to remain quiet so they can observe a fight beneath their location.
She agrees, and he tells her that he was able to remain undetected by swimming deeply during a satellite scan. She makes a mental note of the tactic, and the two watch as their prey fight each other.
Kirito and Sinon find Death Gun
While watching their prey fight, one man dies and the other is immobilized by a third, unseen enemy. Perplexed, the two try to make sense of what they just saw. From nowhere, Death Gun appears, carrying a sniper rifle called the "Silent Assasin". He slowly walks over to the immobilized man and pulls out his handgun, when Kirito urgently asks Sinon to shoot.
