Therefore, he decisively spent 2 potential points and 3000 common points to upgrade Basic Melee to LV5. In this way, his Basic Melee level had reached a world-class seed player, which was equivalent to being able to compete with those who earned gold medals in the Olympic Games.
Not only that, Fang Linyan even discovered that when he made Casting Materials: Mechanical Core in this world, he had an inspiration and optimized a certain circuit.
He didn’t know what kind of changes this optimization would bring.
As a result, he discovered in the actual combat that the actual effect was that elite mechanical warrant officer‘s own maximum HP was reduced by 200 points, but the [Steel Impact] it launched had an additional feature. After successfully hitting the enemy, it could stun the enemy for 1 second.
After getting this conclusion, Fang Linyan chose to temporarily deactivate the elite mechanical warrant officer and continued debugging.
He found that if this optimization was made to the extreme, the maximum [Steel Impact]’s stun time of the elite mechanical warrant officer could reach 2.5 seconds, but at the cost of reducing the defense by 10 and maximum HP by 200, and it required 2 seconds to charge.
However, it was obviously not cost-effective to do so.
In the end, Fang Linyan weighed the pros and cons, then the result of the final optimization was that the [Steel Impact] could stun the enemy for 2 seconds, and it will not knock the enemy back; but its own defense was reduced by 5, its maximum HP was reduced by 200 points, and the cooldown time was also extended by 1/3.
After resting for about 10 minutes, Fang Linyan was at his optimum state. He came back to the water source again and found that the mutated mud wasp was still eating.
The pair of tentacles on its head actually turned bright red. After sucking the blood, it turned into a shape similar to the moth. It could be that it was excited or this was actually its true look.
Burwell really wronged Fang Linyan by saying that he lied to him. To be honest, Fang Linyan really didn’t see that this creature was a mutated killer bee.
At this time, Fang Linyan began to slowly approach the mutated mud wasp. When he got closer to 30 meters did he realize that there were layers of bristles on its two hind legs, which seemed to be full of toughness. When both its legs closed, they formed a wonderful net pocket that looked like a shopping cart basket in a supermarket.
The mutated mud wasp spat out most of the meat pieces into the net pocket on its hind legs.
After seeing this scene, Fang Linyan was moved. He immediately put away his thoughts of attacking immediately, then he released [Drone] to wait and see.
Soon, this mutated mud wasp flew crookedly. It was not known for its long-distance flight ability, not to mention that it was carrying about 20 kilograms of flesh. After flying a few hundred meters away, it would stop slightly. This was convenient for Fang Linyan easier to track.
As a result, it only flew about one kilometer, and the mutated mud wasp entered a deep trench.
Fang Linyan was overjoyed. He immediately followed up, and he found that on the wall in the deep trench, a mud hole was dug by this mud wasp. It had successfully laid eggs in it, and 2 larvae had hatched and were munching on the flesh.
“The meteorite fell 10 days ago…” Fang Linyan calculated in his mind.
“It would be too absurd to say that this mutated mud wasp found another mutated species within 10 days, and quickly completed the process of registration/marital inspection/marriage/prenatal education/buying school district housing, so there is only 1 truth. This mutated mud wasp was infected and mutated during pregnancy.”
As he was thinking, his hands were not idle. He raised the tranquilizer gun in his hand, and then quickly switched to the grenade mode, aimed at the nest and pulled the trigger.
A muffled “bang” sounded as if the stopper had been pulled out of the bottle. A smoking tear gas projectile was shot into the wasp’s nest.
At the same time, Fang Linyan also deliberately made [Drone] buzz around the nest.
Although it was a tear gas, it was urgently modified by the Duckland Company. The smoke that came out actually contained a strong tranquilizing effect.
If it were in the rest of the place, if the female mutated mud wasp faced such a bad situation, it could immediately fly out to attack Fang Linyan or escape.
However, it absolutely wouldn’t do it in its own lair, because the [Drone] released by Fang Linyan made it feel threatened. Once it leaves to attack the enemy, it cannot protect its own eggs.
Therefore, it chose to resist in the nest.
This scene was exactly what Fang Linyan liked to see, so he threw a tranquilizer grenade into the nest every few minutes to keep the high concentration of anesthetic in the nest.
After 10 minutes, he let the [Drone] fly in to check it out, realizing that the mutated mud wasp and the hatched larvae in the nest were not moving. They fell into a state of deep anesthesia.
Then Fang Linyan started taking photos and videos. These shooting processes had very strict requirements. For example, the shooting distance couldn’t exceed a certain distance; the photos must include long-range and close-up shots. In short, it was like the procedure of claiming insurance after a car accident.
Then he uploaded these first-hand data to the designated online safe, and there would be more than 5 people to screen, create files, and register. These processes seemed cumbersome, but they were actually specified by the Duckland Company.
First, it was to collect as much data as possible on mutated creatures.
Second, it was to avoid such vicious incidents as disputes and greed for merit.
For example, a mutated creature was caught by several people, then everyone had the reason to claim that he caught it.
So sorry, everything was based on the time of uploading the data. Whoever submitted this first-hand original data first would get the credit.
There were more than 5 people who were responsible for screening the stored data, belonging to 3 different departments, so the chance of cheating was extremely small.
The data uploaded by Fang Linyan quickly got attention. After 10 minutes, someone started to contact him actively, then they asked him to give the specific location and prepare to set off the special firework to coordinate the position.
20 minutes later, a “Chinook” helicopter flew over, then 6 very professional staffs jumped down and quickly transported the mutated mud wasps and larvae away. Not only that, they even collected the surrounding soil.
Then, a man in a white coat jumped down from above and praised Fang Linyan,
“Well done, I didn’t expect you to find such a discovery just after you arrived last night!”
Fang Linyan smiled and said,
“I’m just lucky.”
The man smiled slightly,
“I never believed in luck…. are you going with us?”
Fang Linyan shrugged and said,
“Yes, I’m still fine now, but the anesthetic ammo is exhausted. So even if I discover anything next, I can only stare blankly unless I plan to kill a mutated creature… or get killed by it.”
The man nodded and invited Fang Linyan to get on the plane, then he asked the helicopter pilot to stop at the temporary camp.
Fang Linyan chatted with this man a few times on the plane, only then did he know that his name was Delto. Judging from the respectful attitude of those around him, he should be someone important.
However, the helicopter arrived at the temporary camp quickly soon. It seemed that Delto hada good impression of Fang Linyan, which could be the effect of the siren’s egg.
When Fang Linyan got off the helicopter, he found that Eisen and Tana were already there to greet him, but they were obviously coming for Delto. Delto just waved his hand lightly and left.
After seeing Fang Linyan, Tana no longer showed a long face. After all, those who were capable were welcomed everywhere. He patted him on the shoulder encouragingly,
“Well done, I just received the news that the mutated creature captured by your team this time is worth 3 stars. So far, it is the most valuable prey captured in this operation.”
Fang Linyan sighed and said,
“After arriving last night, I ordered the rest of the team to set off with me overnight, but unfortunately, no one cares about my words, so this action is my own credit and has nothing to do with them.”
Tana showed a vicious look,
“Very well, I got it.”
Fang Linyan’s timing for the complaint was also very timely. If he complained that his subordinates did not obey his orders without valid achievements, then it would give people the impression of “incompetence”; this time, he returned with merit, so the superior would of course punish those disobedient subordinates to appease him.
After making the complaint, Fang Linyan put forward a request that he had been working very hard last night, so he requested for supplies.
Tana immediately told Eisen to give Fang Linyan the priority to resupply and to provide the most advanced equipment to him.
Although Eisen disliked Fang Linyan because of the fight, now he could only obey his boss’ order. He brought Fang Linyan to a modified RV that had just arrived. It had the most recent supplies.
After entering the supply vehicle, Fang Linyan was like a mouse falling into the rice vat. He needed everything like smoke grenades/tranquilizer grenades/explosive grenades/special grenades. Anyway, he was now promoted to Staff Sergeant, so his personal space was much bigger.
This guy stayed in the supply RV for 20 minutes before coming out contentedly. The contented expression on his face looked very wretched. If he lit another cigarette at this time, the passersby would really think this was a cigarette after sex.
After resupplying, Fang Linyan wanted to find someone to inquire about the latest situation, but he found that most of the people left the camp at dawn, so there was almost no one here except the staffs.
So he went to the temporary headquarters to report and prepared to go on another mission, but was stopped by Eisen and took him to another special RV.
