Of course, Fang Linyan didn’t know that a prank he had done before directly caused Wild Cat to almost lose all his valuables.
But even if Fang Linyan knew it, it was nothing more than adding another man who laughed crazily.
He intended to just lean against the wall for a little rest, but this “little” was almost 2 hours. Fang Linyan wanted to wake up several times in the middle, but the feeling of extreme fatigue made him continue to lean on. Fortunately, the speed of mana’s recovery in the non-combat state was also good, allowing him to keep summoning [Drone] in a warning state, otherwise Fang Linyan really did not dare to rest so confidently and boldly.
As a result, [Drone] did not warn, but a prompt came from the Space instead… Fang Linyan initially sensed the familiar fluctuations from the Space, and he woke up in shock, thinking that the 3rd sudden event had occurred! That would be terrible.
However, it wasn’t the case. What appeared on Fang Linyan’s retinas was not the font that seemed to be written in bright blood in the sudden event, but a line of blue font,
“Area Mission: Strange Parts is triggered.”
“Mission Content: 3 special mechanical creatures broke into the area. They are a kind of war machine newly researched by Tiphon. They were named Predator (Experimental), and their identity is a special observer sent to this combat area. During the manufacturing process, the latest model of technology was applied. This technology is installed on the 2 black steel parts in their cores.”
“Mission Objective: Obtain the black steel parts from Predator (Experimental).”
“Mission Reward: Each black steel part can be exchanged for 3 ghost face dog tags.”
“Mission Reward: Once a Predator (Experimental) is killed, all contestants that have caused damage to it will get a merit point.”
“Mission Hint: Predator (Experimental) has amazing strength, so contestants are forbidden to attack each other while fighting it.”
“Any contestant/contractor will get a peace mark after getting close to Predator (Experimental). The peace mark lasts for 20 minutes. The countdown starts after 100 meters away from Predator (Experimental). Those who have the peace mark will be immune to the attack of the other contestant/contractor. Of course, this person’s attack is also invalid to the other contestant/contractor.”
“Mission Hint: This mission is not a mandatory mission. Even if it fails, there will be no punishment. However, Predator (Experimental) will leave after collecting enough information (stay in Yangfan City for up to 60 minutes). Once all Predators leave safely, Tiphon will learn about the empty situation in Yangfan City and will shrink the encirclement in advance and occupy Yangfan City.”
After seeing the mission in this area, Fang Linyan was stunned, then he immediately realized that although the mission was clearly not mandatory, in fact, once it failed, all contestants could not bear the consequences, that was, the all-out invasion of the mechanical creature! In the face of the vast number of mechanical creatures, even if all the contestants unite, they would probably be overwhelmed within a minute.
At this time, Fang Linyan controlled the [Drone] on the roof to fly a few meters higher, then he saw a total of 3 rapidly moving blue light beams were quickly approaching Yangfan City!
After entering Yangfan City, the 3 blue light beams went their separate ways and moved in different directions. Obviously, under the blue light beam, there were Predators (Experimental). One was coming toward Fang Linyan.
Soon, the sound of gunfire came out, but Fang Linyan was not in a hurry to go forward. He continued to close his eyes to rest because he knew that it wasn’t a first come first serve, but he just had to appear on the right timing.
After waiting for about 5 minutes, the gunfire became more and more intense. Fang Linyan opened his eyes and frowned slightly. The fighting outside seemed to be beyond his expectations! Such a mechanical creature that requires the power of everyone to deal with should be very difficult to deal with.
Therefore, he simply got out of the building, then he controlled [Drone] to let it fly quickly toward the nearest blue beam of light.
It only took less than 5 minutes before the invading Predator (Experimental) appeared in front of Fang Linyan. Its shape was a giant mechanical panther in steel armor that looked very mighty and vigorous. It had eyes shining with blue lights. Its size was almost the size of a bus. At this time, 1 of its legs was emitting black smoke, and there were sparks in it. Obviously, it was about to break down.
If a cat or dog broke a leg, its jumping and running would be affected, but it was not too obvious.
However, Predator (Experimental) obviously had a very poor coping mechanism to this broken leg condition. It should be a problem with the preset emergency plan, so its movement speed had been reduced by at least half. Especially in urban ruins, the collapsed walls and houses could very well hinder its movement, so its movement could only be described as sluggish.
Not only that, but the objective of this Predator (Experimental) seemed to be scouting and advancing, so its characteristic was fast speed (which slowed down after 1 of its legs crippled) and sturdy. This caused it to lack offensive ability. Except the sharp alloy steel claws, there were only 2 turrets installed on both sides. They were equipped with K5 machine guns that were commonly used on Reaper. Ordinary bullet vests could effectively absorb damage…
At this time, almost 8 contestants, who had arrived after hearing the news, were attacking it. Among them, a woman who seemed very ordinary made Fang Linyan look at it twice.
This girl looked ordinary with gray clothes, gray hair and gray frame glasses. If she was on the subway in the central business district, she could perfectly blend with the temperament there. Even if one stared carefully, he wouldn’t have much of an impression of her.
However, Fang Linyan noticed a very important thing. She seemed to be at a constant distance from the Predator (Experimental), neither more nor less than 1cm.
It was almost like there was always an invisible pole between her and the Predator (Experimental), always letting her maintain a certain distance between the Predator (Experimental).
But how could there be such a thing as an invisible pole?
This could only show that she has fully understood the situation of the Predator (Experimental), and she could accurately predict its patterns of behavior! At the same time, she also had a very high degree of control over herself.
The Predator (Experimental) roared angrily. Its turrets were activated, and its sharp claws were easily breaking the houses nearby.
But unfortunately, no matter how powerful an attack was, it was useless if it couldn’t hit the enemy. After the contestants discovered that this thing just looked strong on appearance, they began to jump and shoot excitedly among the ruined ruins. Even though their attacks did very low damage to the Predator (Experimental), it could still munch down its defense. It was the typical example of ants killing the elephant
Needless to say, Fang Linyan also joined the attack naturally. Although more people meant that he might not be able to grab the black steel parts of the Predator (Experimental), as long as he could cause damage to it, he could definitely get some merit point. This was like a free gift.
After attacking for about a dozen minutes, this Predator (Experimental) finally made a series of roaring explosions in its body, then it stopped and collapsed to the ground. Flames started to burn its body, then it exploded after a dozen seconds.
The last explosion was so powerful that it exploded a large pit of almost 10 square meters in size. After the smoke cleared, there were 2 sparkling parts that looked like black diamonds lying near the explosion area. They were quite eye-catching; they must be the black steel parts of the mission objective. Even though Fang Linyan’s reaction was quick, his luck was very bad as the parts were far away. In the end, he could only watch 2 black steel parts snatched away by others.
But for him, he wasn’t short of ghost face dog tags at this time. He just wanted to get some merit points. The key was that he discovered another thing. 1 of the black steel parts was also snatched by the gray-haired flat-chested glasses woman. Was this a coincidence or a deliberate act…
After killing this Predator (Experimental), Fang Linyan always felt that something was wrong. This Predator (Experimental) seemed to be very powerful, but in fact, it had obvious shortcomings, or to put it bluntly, it could be seen as a gift from the Space.
Then the problem was here. This was a joint trial, not a reward trial or a welfare trial!
Just a moment ago, the Space was still trying its best to let contestants fight against each other, but then it immediately gave such a welfare mission. He somehow had a strong sense of strangeness.
Fang Linyan just stunned for a while, then he saw that the surrounding contestants were almost gone, and the direction they were going was the direction of another Predator (Experimental) Fang Linyan immediately followed up directly.
By the time Fang Linyan came to another Predator (Experimental), this thing had already been smoking. Fang Linyan only had time to attack for about 3 minutes before it exploded directly. This time Fang Although Linyan was prepared to snatch the black steel parts, the surrounding competitors had reached 15 people. What’s more, the drop locations of the black steel parts were random, so he still didn’t get them.
TL: Is this Space’s response to Gai Qiushan’s plan? Or there is a trap behind this mission?
