└ It is necessary to note the direction of the projectile
- Can easily attach & detach mine thrower

The Last Skull At The End Of Bonus Time Is A Bit Difficult to Hit

The Front Part During The Bonus Time Is Difficult

Some of the targets stack and can be shot in a linear pattern with penetration effect. If you can remember when the targets stack, it is recommended to move to the possible location and shoot where you can utilize the penetration effect.

The Bolt Thrower can shoot the targets even at the far side. If you are not used to this weapon, practice its usage so you can see how far the direction of the bolts can reach.

Note When & Where To Shoot With Mine Thrower

Mine is an excellent weapon that can destroy multiple targets simultaneously but it is very important where & when to use it as you can only use 4 shots at max. It has a delay so practice and get used to its performance.


Bonus Time Requirement
Defeat all Burglars

Pure Skill For Aiming & Shooting Is Needed

This is the last stage for shooting range and it requires great sense for aiming & shooting. The targets are all rushing and it might be difficult to shoot the right targets even during bonus time. It might take time for you to achieve an S rank in this stage.

Familiarize With The Recoil Of Each Weapon

You can use 4 weapons: Blacktail, Stingray, Striker, & TMP but the recoil is different for each. If you're capable of managing the recoil, the score will change considerably given that the same weapon is frequently fired in quick succession.
