When he was informed of what the team wanted, Jack told them that he would need minerals to make the bullets, leading the team collect the necessary minerals for Jack to make the bullets.

Later, Jack came back to the station saying that Olivier ran away from the workshop, saying that he didn't need Major to find out what he was up to. However before they could do anything else, they heard gunshots coming from the town square, indicating that the gang war had begun.

Like Fighting Snakes

Jack was sent away by Chief Ernest after the gang war had begun, so Jack would not be harmed.

Let's Drink to Death
