Virial equation second coefficient derivation

Main Question or Discussion Point

I've been stuck over this integral for around an hour while studying the derivation of the second coefficient of the virial equation:
∫∫dx1d x2 γ(x1,x2) where γ(x1,x2) is 1 when x1 - x2 < constant.
= V∫ dx2 γ(x1,x2) where V is the integral of dx1.
Given: periodic boundary condition: x1 + V = x1
How do you justify this step?
