Booby Trap (ブービートラップ, Būbī Torappu?) is the eighth episode of the Sword Art Online Alternative "Gun Gale Online" anime adaptation, as well as the third episode of the 2nd Squad Jam story. It aired on June 2, 2018.
With the beginning of the Second Squad Jam tournament, Fukaziroh and LLENN found themselves in a residential area in the north-western corner of the battlefield. After examining the map of the battlefield, the two decided to establish a safe position in the area and wait for the first satellite scan to find Pitohui's location and assess their surroundings.
Ten minutes into the tournament, the first scan began, revealing that the favourites of the tournament were intentionally placed in the four corners of the map to prevent them from clashing prematurely. As various teams used the results of the scan to formulate their strategies, LLENN was shocked by the revelation that Pitohui's team was positioned at the exact opposite corner of the battlefield. After being comforted by Fukaziroh, LLENN decided that their team would head south-east, eliminating any enemies that obstructed their path.
Several minutes later, LLENN detected six players in a circular formation in the middle of the road. As the players had yet to notice their presence, Fukaziroh began moving into a position to assault their targets with a grenade attack. However, the girl accidentally triggered a grenade wire trap while en route, causing an explosion that robbed her of her legs. With her comrade now incapacitated for the following two minutes, LLENN dragged the injured girl to a nearby house for cover.
Ignoring her partner's request to abandon her, the pink girl assaulted the enemies that were drawn to the scene by the explosion. Using her speed, and the corpse of a fallen enemy as an impenetrable shield, LLENN quickly dispatched five of the assailants. As the girl dodged the attacks of her last opponent, Fukaziroh joined the battle, using one of her MGL-140 grenades at close range to kill the player without causing an explosion.
While multiple battles were underway throughout the battlefield, Pitohui was disappointed in the lack of action on her team's side. Despite her incessant complaints, M maintained the order to hold position on the mountain and avoid trivial battles, claiming that it was part of his plan. Reluctantly, Pitohui agreed to follow the order, reassured that M would let her enjoy the formidable opponents, such as LLENN. Meanwhile, with Fukaziroh's legs returned to their original state, the two members of LF observed the following satellite scan.
As another team had taken positions at a nearby railroad, LLENN decided to focus on them next. At that moment, in order to atone for her blunder, Fukaziroh proposed a strategy that would allow them to eliminate the enemy team without engaging them directly. Minutes later, Fukaziroh began firing grenades at their latest target. While the first grenade missed its target, the girl was able to adjust the trajectory of the following shots based on feedback from LLENN, who informed her how far the grenades had landed from their target by observing the situation from a vantage point. Due to their joint effort, the two girls were able to easily dispatch their foes.
Having regrouped at the train station, LF observed the following satellite scan, learning that seven teams near Pitohui's position were close to each other without engaging in battle. LLENN quickly deduced that the squads had formed an alliance, sending their main force against PM4 while the leaders remained at the base of the mountain to conceal the position of the other members. As various teams reacted to the revelation of this tactic in their own ways, LLENN began rushing to the dome to the southeast of the station in an effort to come to Pitohui's aid; however, she soon realised that she would be unable to reach PM4 in time. Meanwhile, Pitohui herself was overjoyed with the news of an alliance being formed against her team, deciding to ambush and massacre all of the assailants on the mountain.
