Indeed, his data according to [Reconnaissance] showed that he was fragile and that his HP was “merely” 300 points. Taking into account the 50% damage reduction between contractors, it also represented Del’s ability to withstand damage was equivalent to a contractor with 150HP.
Team Jaws expressed that there were at least 4 of them that had more than 150HP. Wasn’t it just a matter of minutes to kill this plot weakling?
It was just that Del made 1 thing clear very quickly. While people usually used the words squishy to weakling, Master Del was low HP but not weak!
The moment he was attacked, Del shook his body, and he suddenly entered a translucent state.
This was his signature ability, to escape into the demi-plane.
On the surface, it seemed like he was still in this world when in fact, only a shadow remained. In the next 2 seconds, Team Jaws launched their first attack, which of course was the most violent wave of attacks, but it hit nothing.
More than a dozen explosive bombs, star bombs, magic missiles, and rockets directly penetrated through Del’s translucent figure as if they hit nothing.
Right now it was undoubtedly that Team Jaws was having the expression ???. It was the same reasoning as five players in LOL focus on 1 target, but the target used the Zhonya’s Hourglass to evade all attacks.
The counterattack came in the next second. At the first moment Del escaped from the demi-plane, his whole body kept flashing and multiplying one after another until there were 8 phantoms. At the same time, they pounced on everyone who attacked before. The key factor was that these phantoms released the most basic black magic spell: [Corrosive Shot].
Although this skill wasn’t fatal after getting hit once or twice, the pain was still unbearable to be splashed with sulfuric acid.
Theoretically speaking, these 8 phantoms should pop like a soap bubble when they were touched, but one of them must contain the real body. Team Jaws obviously thought of that too, so under the leader’s command, they still fought the phantoms…
What a pity. Master Del expressed inwardly: I’ve already predicted the way you scumbags would think. All the phantoms are fake…
Del wouldn’t put himself at risk at all. He had already disguised as a shaking passer-by, and he had been chanting behind them
Soon, the situation began to become completely chaotic.
By now, Fang Linyan had already controlled Finx to transform into its human form and put on a cloak to prepare for the next step in his plan.
That was to hunt!!
His first target was Doctor because he knew very well that the conflict between them wouldn’t be resolved. So, he would use this opportunity to get rid of him.
However, Doctor showed a very strong ability for sensing danger. By the time Del successfully dodged Team Jaws’ focus fire, he already sensed an ominous aura and slipped away.
Fang Linyan also couldn’t waste any time searching for him, so he focused on the next person…
— That Benji with foul mouth.
This guy was puckering his butt hiding behind a house. He was using a dual-wielding Sand Eagle. You could see that his strength and stamina were pretty good. Otherwise, a normal person wouldn’t be able to use such a special firearm like the Sand Eagle even if they could dual-wield.
The Finx controlled by Fang Linyan slowly approached Benji from behind. It looked like a cheetah aimed at its target, ready to hunt. When it was closing in within a few meters away, every action it made seemed to be replayed in slow-motion. Every step was separated into small sections, approaching him little by little.
But it must be admitted that even though Benji had a foul mouth, he had some potential. When Finx got within 10 meters, Benji turned around without any sign, then he aimed and fired immediately!
However, just as Benji turned around, the Finx controlled by Fang Linyan had already displayed the strength it possessed as a terrifying biological weapon. Its wings fluttered and its thick locust legs pedaled on the ground. The combination of these 2 actions allowed the Finx to lunge forward at an astonishing speed. It was only the blink of an eye for it to close a 10 meters gap.
As soon as Benji pulled the trigger, he saw the man in a black robe pouncing toward him, almost parallel to the ground. The Sand Eagle on his left hand hit Finx, and green mucus sprayed out from the wound, but the Sand Eagle on his right hand missed all the attacks.
Unlike the other shooters, Benji wasn’t afraid of close combat. His strength allowed him to pull out a baseball bat and hit the opponent with a homerun!
It was just that when he was still formulating his counterattack in his mind, a flash of light appeared!
The robe of the man in a black robe fluttered without wind, then Benji felt that he couldn’t use his right hand anymore.
Deformed Foot Knife!
He looked down and felt disheartening as he realized immediately that there was a long wound along with his right hand. His flesh was rolled over, and even his bone had a deep mark. Fresh blood was spurting out, staining Benji’s vision with blood.
“Ahhh!!” Benji screamed frantically.
There was a chill down his spine. Under such a dire situation, Benji didn’t lose his sanity, but instead, adrenaline was secreted rapidly through his body. He took out a baseball bat from his space and struck the head of the man in a black robe.
But the man in a black robe simply bent down and swooped over, dodging Benji’s vicious blow.
Then his black robe fluttered left and right again. All Benji’s eyes could catch was a grey-colored object flickering, then his HP was depleting quickly. 2 long wounds appeared on his chest.
By now, Benji lost his fighting spirit in an instant. What could he use to fight against the enemy when he couldn’t even see the enemy’s attacks?
He chugged down a bottle of healing potion. The baseball bat in his left hand had already disappeared, replaced by a TK Stick Grenade. The 1 second stun effect on the enemy was crucial because it was enough for Benji to recover and successfully counter-kill his enemy.
But what Benji didn’t know was that the man in a black robe was his similar kind! Therefore, Fang Linyan had calculated his next step.
When Benji took out the TK Stick Grenade, the man in a black robe bumped against him. Benji felt goosebumps after the collision because he could feel the hardness and ragged texture of the man in a black robe’s body. It was completely different from a human’s torso!
Moreover, the man in a black robe’s attack was from an unexpected angle. At the same time the collision occurred, a thin leg tore through the black robe and heavily kicked on Benji’s arm.
With this kick, Benji could no longer use the TK Stick Grenade. It fell on the flood before he could even pull the pin.
Immediately afterward, Fang Linyan manipulated Finx to draw its 2 deformed foot knives again, one slashed across Benji’s eyes and the other across Benji’s neck!
Immediately after, Finx rolled forward and instantly switched to a posture where it laid on its back. This action looked strange because it would expose the Finx’s extremely fragile abdomen.
But in the next second, 2 thick and long mutated legs kicked out violently. These powerful hind legs of a locust had 8 times stronger pedaling force than a human’s, which was almost 2 and a half tons!
What does that mean? If a human being had such a pedaling force, he could jump on top of a 10 meters high building on the spot.
Therefore, the lethality of these 2 legs could be imagined.
Benji’s chest collapsed in an instant. He flew out with a 45-degree parabola, and his blood spurted out like an arrow, then he was dead after landing.
This was bad luck on his part because the Finx that Fang Linyan controlled wasn’t considered a contestant or contractor. Otherwise, its damage would have been forcibly weakened by 50%. He wouldn’t be dead in just a few seconds.
Additionally, there was also a rule in this world that when the contractors attacked each other, they wouldn’t be able to kill each other in 1 blow. Instead, they would knock their opponent into the dying state. They needed to make another attack to harvest the kill.
This rule was set because some team skills could only be activated in the dying state. At the same time, it also further suppressed the power of long-ranged powerful weapons such as sniper rifles.
For example, if a person was shot into the dying state, in between the shots, his teammates could help rescue the dying person. Or more precisely, they could put him into a covered position.
But evidently, Mr. Benji paid a heavy price for his foul mouth. He didn’t even have the chance to enter the dying state before he just died.
In reality, if there was no conflict between the two, Fang Linyan would have started by targeting Team Jaws’ long-ranged attackers instead. Why would he target the weakling that was easy to kill with no ability to counterattack at a close distance?
The way Fang Linyan controlled the Finx to battle was clearly spectated by Victor Frankenstein and Archbishop Molegni.
The 2 of them were shocked to their core at the time.
Previously when the biological weapon Finx was controlled by Father Turks, they always felt that something was wrong, but they couldn’t pinpoint the specific problem. At one point, Dr. Victor Frankenstein even doubted whether there was a flaw in his design…
TL: Now that he showed his excellent pilot skill, they won’t let him go easily anymore…
