Bazalt Joe, is a top GGO (Gun Gale Online) rank player who likes the protagonist’s ArFa-sys (Artificial Financial Adviser System). This humanoid is equipped with a particularly rare, “Type-X” artificial intelligence and can think, take action on its own, and provide a variety of support. Joe is also cheerful and popular among the squadron members. He is persistent and never complains about the result of the game. In case of victory, he provides valuable information and gives good items.

With the Gun and Sword Special equipment released when players clean a certain event with Kirito, they will be able to deal with any situation from short to long range! Furthermore exclusive skills for this Gun and Sword Special equipment will also delight the fans!
