Salz is introduced as the co-leader of the Longhorn Brother's Gang. While News battles, Salz usually stands by and plays his guitar which can also grant News more power. They attacked Carlitoville but was nearly stopped by Bull Borgnine. News lost to Bull in their first match, then he revealed his third eye and unlocked his deeper powers with the help of Salz. With this dark power he easily defeated Bull and destroyed his B-Daman "Helio Breaker". Grey challenges the Longhorn brothers and are next seen ransacking a shack of moving field mines.
One week passes and the Longhorn Gang storms Cowtune. Their first wave of bandits are easily defeated by Grey Michael Vincent and Terry McScotty, but then News stepped in and knocked out Terry with battle mines. Once Grey and Yamato receive Cobalt Saber and Chrome Raven, News has trouble holding them back even losing a round to Grey, forcing him to call Salz for help. News and Salz cheat by holding the captured villagers hostage, but after Yamato nearly defeats them, News suggests that they run away causing Marda B to appear. Marda B grants News and Salz even more power by turning them into monsters to capture Cobalt Saber. But with the help of Wen Yong Fa, Li Yong Fa, Berkhart, Sigma and even Enjyu they are defeated with a combined strike shot from them all (not including Enjyu).
