Only 2 minutes later, the team was driven away. Although the team was not eliminated, it suffered irreversible casualties. The entire team dropped 4 bloody keys and 4 dog tags. Such gains greatly eased the previously hostile atmosphere in the team.
After all, victory was the best relationship lubricant.
After approaching the peculiar scarlet box, Fang Linyan knew why the previous team had been guarding the box beside. A prompt appeared after his hand touched the surface of the box,
“You touched the Bloody Case, but you stay next to the Bloody Case (within five meters) for less than 15 minutes and you can’t let the Bloody Case recognize your breath, so you can’t open it.”
Fang Linyan took another look at this box, which was bigger than the bathtub, and he naturally shit talked in his mind. This thing is actually called a case, and the one-foot-square thing summoned by the bloody key is actually a box… Space, are you sure you really understand the difference between a box and a case?
After a brief discussion, they decided to let Sean and Goat, who were good at defense, stay within 5 meters of the Bloody Case. Shania and Fang Linyan were still staying a little farther away to offer fire support in the dark. Wild Cat was maneuvering around; he was a typical assassin character. He focused on making a surprise attack to 1 hit kill the enemy. If he was found out at the very first moment, it would be a failure for him.
During this waiting time, Sean distributed the spoils.
As a member who could provide both a helpful scout and a certain combat effectiveness, Fang Linyan had a high status in the team. He was ranked 2nd in the selection of trophies by Sean.
Fang Linyan also unceremoniously chose the dog tag, and now he had 3 dog tags, which was considered to have completed the basic mission.
Then, Sean used all the bloody keys and almost chose the option of drawing 3 items. Those who didn’t get a dog tag could choose the items first. In the end, there was no good item from the bloody boxes. The best thing was a roll of medical bandage. This item could be used 5 times. The cooldown interval was 5 minutes. After use, it could restore 14 HP within 7 seconds, but the user couldn’t move within 7 seconds, let alone being attacked.
However, because dog tags were a stable benefit; the contestants that were killed at this time were obviously not strong, so the chance of dropping good items from the bloody keys was not high, so the item value was not as high as the dog tags, so Fang Linyan’s turn to choose item was rather late. He chose 2 grenades very casually.
The next 15 minutes were not calm. The team that was beaten back was unwilling, so they came back again. Unfortunately, their whereabouts were discovered early by [Drone], then Fang Linyan and Shania killed 1 from the distance and Wild Cat took advantage of the chaos to kill 1. Thus, this originally low morale team immediately collapsed.
At this time, Fang Linyan also had to admit that Wild Cat did have the ability to be arrogant. Once he emerged from the darkness, he would almost certainly be able to harvest a life. This efficiency was indeed amazing.
Soon, 15 minutes passed, Sean opened the Bloody Case, then he got the item inside… Everyone was kinda stunned by it because this thing didn’t like a map at all. It looked more like a glass ball. Yes, it was the toy when Fang Linyan was still a little kid, the colored glass ball.
Shania even looked at the inside of the Scarlet Box to see if anything was left in there. Unfortunately, the big box of the Bloody Case was clearly empty!
At this time, [Drone]’s screen showed that 2 more teams arrived at the scene. Obviously, they would definitely team up to fight Sean’s team that obtained the map. Therefore, without hesitation, Goat threw out 2 smoke grenades to cover the retreat, then Shania took down 1 enemy who was out of position. They quickly escaped from there and disappeared into the buildings in Yangfan City.
After finding an unmanned house to rest, Sean calmly handed the bloody map to everyone to watch. After touching it, they realized that only the team leader could use the thing, so Sean had to keep it.
At this time, Shania and Wild Cat must be very depressed. If they had known that the team leader had so many privileges, the 2 must have tried their best to get the title. As a result, they were really restrained now.
Soon, Sean also understood the use of the bloody map. It turned out that 1,000 common points were needed to activate the bloody map once. When the map was activated, this small ball would directly fly up and project the overview map within a radius of 2 kilometers. They could see many yellow dots, 5 green dots and 2 red dots.
Obviously, the red dots were contestants, while the 5 green dots were their own team, The yellow dots were neutral aborigines.
At the same time, after the bloody map was activated, the map could appear directly on their retinas like Fang Linyan’s [Drone] vision. This was convenient and fast, and the map could also shield friendly allies from being detected.
However, the most damn fact about this was that they had to pay to use this main function! 1000 common points could only activate it for 20 minutes. Activating it for an hour needed 3000 common points. 10 hours were 30,000 common points. Such a consumption rate was enough to make people crash.
While the map was on, everyone agreed that the 1,000 points could not be wasted, so they set off directly and took advantage of the remaining time to kill the 2 red dot contestants.
Although Fang Linyan felt a little cruel, after all, the 2 sides had no grievances and no enmity, but after thinking about it carefully, it was actually like soldiers in a war. They had no hatred at all, but they had to fight to each other’s death. They were really helpless against it.
Killing these 2 red dot contestants was smooth, although in Fang Linyan’s opinion, the strength of these 2 men was quite impressive. Sean, who charged in first, was shot in the left chest. Even Shania was shot directly in the left arm. Wild Cat even got a headshot! But after all, this was a 5v2 match, and the contestant’s digitalized body wouldn’t lose combat power after taking 1 shot like in the real world.
In this case, they died in grievances.
Although the 2 people died without leaving a corpse, they had apparently been hiding in the house for at least 3 days. From some living habits as well as booby traps, Sean recognized that these 2 people should be sent by the largest power in his world, and they were still very elite special forces. Their task was to infiltrate the mysterious space.
Hearing what Sean said, Fang Linyan was even taken aback. Then there was a hint of ecstasy in his heart. He never thought that he could kill the special forces… After all, the word in his dictionary belonged to a very distant and high existence.
After killing the 2 contestants, they found that the hiding place chosen by the special forces was quite good. It was secretive, easy to defend and hard to attack, and there were ready-made booby mines and traps that could be used, so they simply took over the nest and rested here.
Not only that, but the strong resistance of these 2 contestants before their deaths also made everyone -especially Wild Cat- realized that they maybe some weaklings who survived until today, but most of them were tough opponents.
Therefore, the next goal in the team was now very clear, that was, try to avoid head-to-head confrontation with the other teams with a large number of people. Instead, they relied on the advantage of getting the bloody map to attack those lone contestants.
At the same time, all the bloody keys obtained from the killings would be used to select the third option, then they kept all the healing items and sold the rest for the activation cost of the bloody map.
Why didn’t they choose the first option to get 50% of the remaining potential points and common points before the contestant died? The reason was very simple. The contestants themselves were rookies, so it was impossible to store too many potential points and common points. Not only that, before entering the final stage of joint trial, they also had sufficient time to exchange common points into immediate combat power…….
After the team reached a conclusion, everyone began to recover from their injuries. For ordinary people, the injuries they received were fatal. But for the contestants, even the most injured Wild Cat with a headshot, after using the bandage dropped from the bloody key, he was completely recovered after half an hour.
For the next 7 hours, the entire team followed the fighting for the loot to sustain the following fights. They searched for the lone contestant through the bloody map, then they launched an assault with a number advantage.
It was night at this time, and the power of the firearms was greatly reduced, and Fang Linyan’s [Drone] could take the lead in scouting, so the team was actually quite efficient. They launched assaults 7 times in the past few hours.
On 2 occasions, they felt that the opponents’ resistance was very strong. They would have heavy casualties if they kept fighting, so they chose to retreat immediately for one time. For the other time, although they successfully defeated them, the opponents ran in all directions. 2 got away. They killed 9 contestants in total, and 11 dog tags were dropped.
During this period, they also ran into several random missions. Some asked them to send medicine to a certain place, some asked them to save people, and there was even a team mission that was to break into the circle of mechanical creatures outside and kill 1 of the mechanical creature leaders.
There were ghost face dog tags in the rewards of these missions, but they weren’t worth the effort. Especially the team mission, the chance of survival was 0, so they all gave up.
TL: After all the weak teams died, would they choose to hunt down other rather powerful teams?
