Shock! Second Gear! is the twenty-ninth episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on January 26, 2019.
Both use their Wild Blasts, and as Arashi attacks with King of the Claw, the Hunter Wolf responds with speed, it easily dodges the attack and out manoeuvres the Wild Liger. Arashi, however, has trained against speed, and uses the King of Claw Spiral. This takes Salt off-guard, but he still manages to dodge.
Arashi is amazed by Salt's skill, and genuinely happy about their fight. Abruptly, Salt disengages and leaves. It turns out, that in the past, Salt had met Bacon. Arashi's actions had reminded Salt of Bacon.
Elsewhere, Drake heads to their location at high speed. Eventually, the others make camp along with and at daybreak Drake arrives (just after Salt leaves). Drake uses surprise to disable all but the Liger. The ground is unstable and as Arashi and Drake fight, Arashi is left at a disadvantage. Salt returns and helps fight Drake. At this point Drake mentions that Bacon is dead. This causes Salt to activate his "Second Gear" and does another Wild Blast technique. The pack on the Wolf's back fires beams in all directions, and wins the fight.
Drake, bleeding from the mouth, tries to get back on his GilRaptor, but it refuses. Its own force of will disengages the Death Blast and the Zoid shuts down. The others escape.
At the end of the episode, Arashi gives Salt a Freedom badge.
Post-credits is a short bit with Foiegras.
