All those bats you've skillfully dodged better look out, as now you can shoot them down. Kill an enemy and it'll drop yellow triangles which level up the gun you wield when picking them up. Collecting enough will increase the level of your gun, but be careful, getting hit will make you lose some experience from your active gun!

Misery will make off with Toroko, and you'll be left with Balrog who asks if you planned on trying to fight him. Say yes, and he'll start trying to charge and jump at you. Dodge his patterns and he's extremely easy. Or you could say no, and he'd just leave.
