Raiden ignores Shinei’s orders and decides to help him by taking out the other Legion units around Shourei’s. Maneuvering through enemy fire, Shinei reaches his late brother’s unit but soon finds out he can’t destroy it with the weapons he has on his juggernaut.
Suddenly, the sky above the battlefield opens up with a rain of artillery fire. It is revealed that Lena disobeyed her orders and somehow gained entry into Republic’s artillery system. The bombardment destroys most of Legion’s unit. Meanwhile, Shourei’s unit grabs Shinei’s Juggernaut with liquid metal arms and throws it away. The force of his juggernaut’s impact against the ground makes Shinei lose his consciousness. As Shourei’s unit approaches Shin, Lena hits it with dud rounds, giving Shinei enough time to regain consciousness and destroy his opponent, finally putting his dead brother to rest.
It is revealed that Lena figured out that Shinei and Shourei were Annette’s neighbors during their childhood. She told Annette this and convinced her to help her save Shinei and his crew. After the battle, the survivors say goodbye to Lena, making her realize that they are leaving the Republic without her.
