Since he was from another dimension, Longshot could not contract the mutant plague making him an ideal chose. Arriving in Hammer Bay, the X-Men dispersed from the Blackbird and engaged the Press Gang. This provided a distraction so Longshot could sneak into the lower levels to rescue the others from their cells.
He took out some Magistrates until he ran into some resistance in the form of Rictor, who blasted a vibrational shock at the ground causing an earthquake but Longshot flipped over the rummage and threw some paralytic tipped blades at Rictor which rendered him unconscious, which allowed him to free the others.
Finding out the discovery that Cameron Hodge was brought back to life. Longshot ran straight at him while throwing his knives hoping that it would put Hodge down, but he started to fire optical blasts at Longshot but he easily dodged it with his enhanced agility.
During the fray, Havok, Wolfsbane, and Bombshell sacrificed themselves by flying the Blackbird straight into Hodge as Bombshell and Havok used their abilities to create a huge explosion killing Hodge once more. Longshot was with everyone as they mourned the death of their comrades.
