Of course Juno had to get the one subset of Melee weapon with which he was unfamiliar. He had seen polearms be used, yes, especially by his mother. But Juno had never fought with one himself. The fact that he had already handed Phi off to Malina meant he was going blind. No advice, no help in finding openings... yeah... Not to mention that fate continued to laugh in his face with his opponent. Acero Walker was not only a fourth year, but also rather powerful on his own. Sure, he was also hindered with the inability to use his enhancements, but he was still a threatening foe.

Shifting the spear given to him into its sniper rifle form offered Juno a bit of security. He could do guns, and had fired snipers before. As he shouldered the weapon, Juno looked over his opponent and put up his guard, awaiting their first move.

Acero cringed at the choice of weapons at his disposal. They were meant for a sneaky, lightweight trickster, while he himself was was a somewhat heavy brawler. "Grappling hooks and bombs, huh? I got a bad feeling about this..." he said to himself. Acero's sense of chivalry demanded that he could not battle someone without at least introducing himself.

In a proud tone, he yelled, "Hello, my name's Acero! Hopefully this battle will be fun for the both of us!", and bowed in respect.

With introductions out of way, Acero threw out a couple of Earth bombs, covering a good portion of the arena in sand. Acero moved into the cloud, using his cybernetic eye to look around, and threw a fire and ice bomb towards Juno.

Juno had fought in sandstorms before, against users of multiple kinds of dust. However, he hadn't done that while fighting with an unfamiliar weapon. The second the sandstorm went up, Juno started moving, converting the sniper back into its spear form. Maybe he could use that as a defensive measu-

That thought quickly ended when the fire bomb impacted the spear's shaft, separating the polearm from its user and sending Juno into the ground. Eyes darting to the weapon, Juno scrambled for the spear... only for an ice grenade to freeze it in place.

Fucking. Brilliant.

An agitated sigh escaped Juno's lips as he stood up and faced his opponent, sizing them up as he circled his opponent. He had no weapon. That was going to make things tricky, yes, but at least he was good with hand to hand. Midway through his stride, Juno planted his foot into the ground and focused his aura to his legs, sending him shooting forward as he went for a lunging punch to his opponent's face.

Acero barely had any time to react to the punch that was coming right for his face. In a last ditch effort to reduce the amount of damage, Acero met the punch to his face by going with it, rather than against it. It still hurt like hell though. To counter this, Acero sent an cybernetic punch of his own flying towards the first year's stomach in an effort to try and knock the wind out of him. Acero used his other arm to protect his face, like a boxer.

Juno hadn't anticipated such quick retaliation, but did his best to adjust accordingly as he stepped back, only to take the punch square in the chest, knocking him onto his back. As Juno felt the ground impact this back, he rolled back, scrambling to his feet. He should have really seen Acero's retaliation coming, and he himself couldn't engage at close range... He needed the spear.

His priorities now set, Juno darted for the weapon, shattering the already melting ice with a punch and shifting it into its rifle form. He likely wouldn't hit the first shot with an unfamiliar gun, but he might as well try. His grip steady and his aim passable, the huntsman in training opened fire, his breath hitching as the recoil of the rifle forced him back a few inches. "That... That's a powerful gun."

If Acero could use is semblance, he would've been able to dodge the incoming rifle round, no problem. However, this match did not allow semblances, so Acero was forced to take a rifle round square to the chest, blowing him back a few meters.

After skipping on the ground once or twice, Acero fired his grappling hooks towards his foe, letting them impact into the floor. After that, Acero pulled himself towards Juno, and got ready to kick him in the face with both of his legs.

As Acero flew back, Juno chambered another round, watching his opponent through the scope of the weapon, a slight smirk playing at his lips as the young man tumbled across the field. However, that smile faded once he heard the distinct sound of metal on metal, eyes narrowing as his opponent was dragged through the air using the force of the grappling hooks. Juno had used that move himself on occasion, and was quick to sidestep the incoming kick, diving for the line and ripping it out of the ground before wrapping it around his hand. Once he had gotten to his feet, Juno took a low stance, keeping his center of gravity low to better anchor himself to the ground as he motioned toward himself with two fingers.

Acero was a little surprised to see Juno dodge the kick with such relative ease. As Acero got on his feet and aught his breath, he saw Juno taunting him to attack--holding one of the lines. Acero had a sneaking suspicion as to what could happen if he attacked, so, instead of rushing forward, he took out 4 bombs, one of each type.

First, Acero covered his right eye and dropped a sand bomb on the ground beneath him. After that, he threw the other bombs in Juno's general direction. He held the line that Juno was holding, stamped his foot down onto it. "Like hell I'd fall for a trick like that! Don't think that because you landed a few good hits means that you can defeat me!"

Ice Bomb = 5%, Chance to freeze

Thanks in part to Juno's more grounded stance, Acero's sudden tug had little to no effect as Juno held firm. However, he had not anticipated the onslaught of bombs, and barely had enough time to release the line before the fire bomb exploded at his feet, sending him flying backward and once again separating him from his-er... Vermillion's weapon. Scrambling back to his feet, Juno analyzed the situation, placing both hands, one atop the other, at his hip... only to remember that he had handed off Phi and the generator to Malina. Brilliant.

Seeing as how he needed to get into a close enough engagement range, Juno circled around his opponent, trying to use the sandstorm he had incurred as cover as he darted to the side, moving for a sliding kick, and transitioning into an uppercut when he got within range.

Acero barely had anytime to react when Juno came sliding in through the sandstorm, narrowly dodging the slide kick. The spinning uppercut however, caught Acero off guard, and forced him at least 2 feet off the ground. Acero hit the ground with a loud thud, metal clashing against the floor.

After getting up and seeing that his opponent was separated from his weapon, Acero decided to throw an ice bomb towards it, and charged Juno with a shoulder tackle, which would be followed by an overhead smash when he was on the ground.

Juno had no way of reacting to the tackle that wouldn't have required his semblance, and soon found himself flat on his back with his opponent's hands raised high above his head. With what little time he had, Juno rolled to the side, scrambling to his feet as he felt the ground crack through the sheer force of the whiffed attack. Acero was strong, no doubts about it. Smart too, given how he had frozen the spear back into the ground, leaving the only accessible engagement to melee range. Very well then.

Taking a second to analyze the situation. Now was the time to test the waters, no need for anything fancy. As this was the case, Juno threw out a jab toward his opponent's stomach, quickly transitioning into a low kick before returning to his standing position.

Acero got into his usual boxer stance and deflected the jab with left arm, however, doing that left him open to his opponent's low-kick, which he took to his left leg. Seeing an opportunity to counter-attack, Acero grabbed his opponent's leg and started spinning and spinning, getting ready to throw his opponent. Soon, he let go and let his opponent fly to one side of the arena, panting heavily.

The throw was far from expected, catching Juno far off guard as he collided hard with the ground. It took him a moment to get back up, but by then, he realized that not only was he far away from his weapon, but he was also far outside his effective range. Brilliant. Getting to his feet, Juno steadied himself, popping his neck as he beckoned his opponent. There was no way he was getting back into range on his own, so he'd just have to bait the cyborg.

As soon as Acero saw his opponent start taunting, he started getting seriously ticked off. He then let out a loud yell as looked up at the arena ceiling, all of his muscles flexed. After he was done, he looked at Juno with a fire in his eyes.

"Ugh, I thought we went over this! I'm not falling for your taunts!" Acero said this as he threw 3 electrical bombs towards Juno, and then a sand bomb towards the middle of the arena quickly after.
