Volume 3 Chapter 3: Astonishing progress


PA! PA!

Foul blood streamed along the thick skin of the horned boar’s neck, dripping onto the dust filled highway. The horned boar had a crazed look in its eyes, and as it howled deeply, it madly rushed at Luo Feng again and again like lightning. The hooves, horn, and tail: all three kinds of attacks kept coming unrelentlessly.

“After its head injury, the flexibility in its head turning has clearly decreased by a lot”. Luo Feng dodged agilely.

In the fighter combat exam, he fought seven H level monsters at the same time to train himself. Even though the concentrated attacks of seven H level monsters are a bit below the level of the F level horned boar, the difference wasn’t large.

WHOOSH!

Luo Feng didn’t retreat. With an elegant dodge to the side, the horned boar’s horn missed Luo Feng’s body by just three centimeters. However, these three centimeters acted like a barrier, so the horned boar couldn’t harm Luo Feng at all.

“Attack!”

The ghost blade in Luo Feng’s hand came crashing down! It brought an ear piercing sound, and the horned boar immediately howled out in rage. It used all of its might on its four hooves to try and avoid Luo Feng’s blade. But….. Luo Feng’s blade was too fast, and only the sound of the blade entering its flesh was heard.

CHI——

Another strike to the neck. Even though it wasn’t in the same location as before, this one cut into a depth of 8 cm!

“Hmph, with its last injury, the muscles of its neck couldn’t exert a hundred percent of its force to block the attack. Next time I attack, its neck’s defense will be even weaker”. Right when Luo Feng slashed into the neck, he immediately retreated, easily avoiding the crazed counter attack from the enraged horned boar. After that, Luo Feng closed the distance again!

[ROAR~~ ROAR~~] The horned boar let out an enraged howl.

“Last time!”

Luo Feng swayed for three steps, causing an illusion, and then once again dodged the horned boar’s attack. What followed those agile steps was Luo Feng’s sharp blade!”

“PU-CHI”

At first, it was quite difficult to slash into, but after cutting into a depth of 12 cm, the resistance rapidly decreased. After Luo Feng’s ghost blade cut into two thirds of the horned boar’s neck, he pulled out his blade and rapidly retreated!

Blood flowed like a fountain from that gigantic wound!

[Ao~~~]came a shrill. The horned boar’s entire body was twitching, and its hooves were stomping unconsciously. The asphalt of the highway was cracking under the stomping. After that, the unconscious boar threw itself around and crashed against the curved railing at the side of the highway, breaking it and falling down.

Its noise got weaker, and then it stopped.

Luo Feng stood beside the broken highway railing, looking down on the horned boar’s corpse whose head was about to fall off. Blood rapidly stopped flowing, since almost all of it has flowed out already. There was probably at least a barrels worth of blood that flowed out.

“Dead!” Luo Feng leaped down and, using his ghost blade, cut off the horn.

The most important part of the horned boar’s body is just this one horn!

※※※

The five members of the fire hammer squad couldn’t help but to let out a breathe as they watched from afar.

“Abnormal!”

“Monster!”

These two words came from the Wei Jia brothers’ mouths.

“How is he, I made a good recommendation, haven’t I” bragged Chen Gu. If we say the five of them were surprised before, then now they are completely shocked and stunned.

“Incredible” Zhang Ke couldn’t help but to say.

Captain Twin Hammer “Gao Feng” stared at Luo Feng as he cut off the horn: “How is Luo Feng’s technique so good? The horned boar is above him in pure speed by a bit, but his consecutive dodges were light and smooth. Every dodge was like a cloud or a flowing river! If he can do this technique hundreds of thousands of times, then that’ll be the Ru-Wei class!”

“He’s only 18, if he’s Ru-Wei class! He should be sent to the world headquarters’ dojo to undergo special training” The older sibling of the Wei Jia brothers, ‘Wei Tie’, couldn’t help but to say.

Ru-Wei class…..

Is a perfect dodge by using the smallest amount of power possible to delicately avoid the attack! This kind of dodge is extremely difficult, and an average fighter can only pull it off once or twice. However, if you can do it a hundred times or a thousand times, then that means you’re truly Ru-Wei class!

“We’ve obtained a gem!” Gao Feng let out a smile.

The younger sibling, ‘Wei Qing’, surprisingly nodded too: “Hm, after some nurturing, our fire hammer squad will have another capable member”.

“Me and Wei Qing will teach him” said Wei Tie.

Chen Gu and Zhang Ke laughed. As veterans who have walked on the border of life and death countless times, it was clear to them. Some geniuses have amazing body fitness levels, but when they actually have to fight a monster, they can’t even bring out a tenth of their strength. Because of this, Chen Gu and Zhang Ke usually look down on these so called geniuses.

A true professional has to go through countless dangerous battles!

And Luo Feng was able to show such skill in his first battle. Clearly, he was a powerful fighter.

“Captain” Luo Feng ran over, “This horn…..”

“You killed it, so of course this horn belongs to you” said Gao Feng.

Luo Feng nodded, and accepted it.

There isn’t much on a soldier level monster’s body that’s worth money, because all of the soldier level monsters can be killed by heated weapons….. Even a beginner warrior, with a machine gun and good shooting technique, could easily kill many soldier level monsters. So solider level monsters aren’t worth money!

“If you sell this horn to the dojo, you’ll probably get three thousand dollars and some contribution points. If you sell it to the underground alliance, you can probably get five thousand” laughed Chen Gu.

Only the material on the body is worth money.

And important material on a “commander level monster” is worth a crazy amount of money!

“Luo Feng, with your performance just now, you barely pass” said the older sibling of the Wei Jia brothers, ‘Wei Tie’, as he pouted.

“Brother Tie?” Luo Feng looked over, “Please guide me, brother Tie”.

“Your basics are good, but your efficiency is much too low” said Wei Tie coldly, “wait a bit and watch how I kill a F level monster”.

……

What Luo Feng killed was a monster nearing the F level. After they departed, they quickly encountered a F rank cat family ‘Ocelot monster’. This ocelot had some stripes on it and was as tough as a bull. It was superior to the horned boar in flexibility and savageness by far.

“Watch me” said Wei Tie coldly.

WHOOSH!

With the shield in his left hand and scimitar in his right, he charged straight towards the ocelot in a straight line!

“Brother Tie is in the advanced warrior class, so his body fitness level is similar to this F level ocelot” Luo Feng watched carefully. He only observed that Wei Tie wasn’t trying to dodge anything and just crashed into the ocelot. No, actually, right when the ocelot was about to crash into Wei Tie…

Wei Tie’s body moved sideways and his shield crashed into the ocelot at an angle.

Crashing at this angle knocked the ocelot off balance, causing it to stagger to the side.

“PU-CHI!”

A sinister cold light made an arc against the shield. It flashed across the exposed throat of the ocelot due to it being knocked off balance. Soon after, fresh blood sprayed out like a fountain, and Wei Tie retreated quickly. He coldly looked at the ocelot monster howling in pain until it slowly fell over and lost its breath.

Wei Tie cut off the ocelot’s tail and took out an almost transparent tendon. He put it in his bag and walked back.

“Did you see that? My technique wasn’t better than yours, and my power didn’t exceed yours. However, I was able to kill it in one hit” Wei Tie looked at Luo Feng.

Luo Feng fell into shock.

The battle just now was finished in a flash. But for his battle, he had to dodge so many attacks and attack the neck of the horned boar over and over again. It took him quite a bit of energy to kill it. And that horned boar was clearly weaker than this ocelot monster.

“Think about it deeply” Wei Tie didn’t explain anything and let Luo Feng think about it himself.

Luo Feng was completely shocked.

Wei Tie’s speed and technique weren’t anything out of the ordinary, and yet he produced such amazing results!

“The best way to kill a monster is to aim for its weak points!”. The younger sibling of the Wei Jia brothers, ‘Wei Qing’, said indifferently, “Usually for mammals, their weak points are their eyes, throat, and mouth. One stage below that would be their soft abdomen….. one stage below that would be the neck you were slashing into!”

Luo Feng nodded, he knew this. But the monsters move so quickly, so stabbing their eyes is difficult! And for the horned boar and the ocelot who always lower their heads so much, hitting the throat is hard too. Even the abdomen is hard to hit, so attacking the neck was the simplest way.

“There won’t be many chances to attack the monster’s weak points. The monsters aren’t stupid, they’ll protect their weak points properly”

“However, if there aren’t any chances, then you can make them!”

“For example, my brother crashed into the ocelot at an angle with his shield, causing it to lose its balance. This made the ocelot expose its throat for a split second. He used his scimitar to slash it from the bottom of his shield and into the throat, which killed the ocelot in an instant” Wei Qing said coldly, “This was the last attack my brother did, and it was from the bottom of his shield, so the monster couldn’t react at all!”

Luo Feng nodded.

“Remember, learn how to use your strong points” said Wei Qing, “You have to use them efficiently and cleanly! Your technique is good, but you don’t have to flash your technique around every time to kill the monster. Always move towards the most efficient way to kill the monster”

“Understood” Luo Feng nodded.

Wei Qing let out a rare smile.

“Let’s go” laughed Gao Feng as he waved.

……

The fire hammer squad clearly wanted Luo Feng to become a capable member in the future, so they trained him seriously. On the road, Wei Qing and Wei Tie took turns fighting the monsters that appeared, and sometimes let Luo Feng deal with them too. They taught him with words and techniques, and let Luo Feng get some real experience. Luo Feng’s rate of improvement was also just as astonishing.

Even the warlord level Gao Feng fought a few times, guiding Luo Feng in the process.

Luo Feng knew, that you have to make each attack bring out all of its strength to kill a monster. And when he was fighting the horned boar before, his beautiful dodges were, in fact, useless! Luo Feng’s attacks slowly became more sharp, direct, and effective!

Three days later

Dawn, on the broken city ring road, the six members of the fire hammer squad were moving forward.

“There are two F level mastiff lions, Luo Feng, go” commanded captain Gao Feng.

“Yes, captain”

Luo Feng laughed and grinned, and headed towards the mastiff lions at an average speed.

“HOWL~~” “HOWL~~” the mastiff lions roared at the incoming Luo Feng with bloodthirsty madness in their eyes. They didn’t care much for this human in front of them, but when they got really near each other— —Luo Feng let out a smile on his face

WHOOSH!

His speed accelerated rapidly! Both of the mastiff lion monster’s hairs all stood up.

Luo Feng closed the distance in an instant. The four abnormal steps he did was the 《Nine Stage Thunder Blade》technique ‘Flowing Light’. He baited the claws of the mastiff lions, and with a twist of his body, accurately dodged their claws. As their bodies moved across each other, the ghost blade slashed sinisterly in an instant!

PU! Slashed right in the throat.

Luo Feng charged forwards and turned his head towards the other mastiff lion monster.

“HOWL~~” when the mastiff lion monster saw fresh blood spraying from its comrade’s throat, it howled and retreated swiftly.

Chen Gu, Gao Feng, and the other members of the fire hammer squad let out a smile as they watched.

Even though Luo Feng isn’t as experienced as the Wei Jia brothers, but because of his technique, Luo Feng’s killing power is not worse than either the older or younger sibling of the Wei Jia family.

“Luo Feng, let’s go, hurry and enter the town! The mastiff lions are gregarious. The mastiff lion that ran away will soon bring a whole pack of them over here” laughed Chen Gu. Luo Feng laughed as they all united. The six members of the fire hammer squad finally reached their destination——0201 country level city.

Volume 3 Chapter 4: Key Position

The fire hammer squad quietly entered the suburban part of the #0201 country level city.
“Luo Feng, we ran along the highway these past three days, which belongs to the desolate area.” as they walked, Chen Gu kept his voice low and said, “most of the monsters live in the city and in the built-up areas! Places like the counties and urban areas are the truly dangerous locations!”

“Understood, brother Chen” nodded Luo Feng.

Luo Feng already read about the common habits of monsters in the posts.

In the long war between monsters and humans, monsters found that if they live in relatively empty areas, the human army and fighters could lock-on to them from far away. Without anything to hide behind, the humans could use “heavy sniper rifles” and missiles to conduct long distance attacks!

But in the city, there were tons of skyscrapers.

As long as the monsters hid in the urban areas, snipers will rarely have a chance, unless they go inside the city! And right when the human army enters the city, they’ll have to fight with the monsters on the streets, where the monsters will have an overwhelming advantage. Urban areas are the monsters’ heaven!

“Naturally, the target for our fire hammer squad is a commander level monster! However…..” reminded Chen Gu in a small voice, “A commander level monster is intelligent, around the level of a human. The commander level monster will command large amounts of soldier level monsters to surround it. Virtually every commander level monster will be surrounded by large amounts of soldier level monsters, so it’s very difficult to kill a commander level monster”.

Luo Feng nodded.

A soldier and a commander not only have a large difference in strength, but also——intelligence!

To protect their lives, a commander level monster will naturally summon large amounts of soldier level monsters to protect it. Other than the extremely rare monsters that like to be independent, most commanders will be surrounded by soldiers.

“Everybody be careful, there’s a steel clad bull lair up ahead” said Gao Feng suddenly, “The head of this steel clad bull lair is probably a high level commander, and there are large amounts of steel clad bulls in this lair. Let’s go around it! Chen Gu, don’t shoot. If a steel clad bull attacks, remember, kill it instantly. Don’t let the steel clad bull call its comrades”.

“Yes, captain”

The other five all nodded.

Unlike the deserted areas outside, the city and the suburbs are much more dangerous.

The six members of the fire hammer squad carefully moved forward along a narrow path.

“Halt” the older sibling of the Wei Jia family, ‘Wei Tie’, who was in front, raised his hand. He stared seriously in front of him, where a gigantic iron fur boar was lying far away. Beside the boar were two mastiff tiger monsters who had their heads lowered and were feasting on large bites of flesh. Suddenly, the mastiff tiger monster rose its head and looked at the fire hammer squad from far away and became much more cautious.

“We’ll go around, don’t do anything” said Gao Feng in a small voice.

On the deserted highway, Luo Feng and the others were relaxed; they could kill monsters whenever they felt like it. However, it’s different in the city.

……

After treading carefully on the way, taking at least ten detours, and killing eight regular soldier level monsters instantly, Luo Feng and the others finally arrived at their first destination——a small sector in the #0201 country level city, ‘Blue Sky Sector’. The reason why the blue sky sector was the fire hammer squad’s first target was because there were three residential apartments that were 21 stories high.

“Go, to the roof”

“Everyone be careful, a monster might pop out of who knows where in the building”

“Don’t make too much noise”

The six members of the fire hammer squad went along the staircase.

“Howl~~~” a low pitched howl emanated within the building, which made the six members of the fire hammer squad frown. Wei Tie, who was furthest in front, said in a small voice: “It should be upstairs, everybody be careful”. Everybody had their weapon in hand and were prepared to strike. And Chen Gu, who used heated weapons, was being protected in the center.

They went forward one step at a time.

“Hm?” Luo Feng saw a two meter tall lion mastiff monster suddenly appear from the corner in front. It’s fur was long and it looked like a gigantic military SUV. When the lion mastiff monster saw the them, it immediately howled, sending a blood scented wind at them.

The fire hammer squad was going upstairs and the lion mastiff monster dived at them with the energy gained from its gigantic body.

WHOOSH! WHOOSH!

Wei Tie and Wei Qing in the front had almost identical movements. With a shield in one hand and a scimitar in the other, they charged forward at the same time and barely grazed the lion mastiff monster’s body. As their bodies grazed past each other, the scimitars drew curved lines that passed through the joints of the lion mastiff’s front claws.

The brothers Wei Tie and Wei Qing used the exact same technique!

This caused the front two claws of the lion mastiff monster to stagger and fall onto the stairs. At this time, spear ‘Zhang Ke’, who was behind Wei Tie and Wei Qing, instantly moved forward. His alloyed spear carried a metallic sound with it as he pierced the lion mastiff monster’s head.

PU-CHI! The spear instantly pierced through the lion mastiff monster’s eyes and went through its head!

“ROAR~~” The lion mastiff monster unconsciously stepped forward twice and then fell powerlessly.

The cooperation between Wei Qing, Wei Tie, and Zhang Ke was indeed marvelous! The first two took care of the lion mastiff’s front limbs to make it lose its balance, which was immediately followed up by Zhang Ke’s spear for a one hit kill! Zhang ke was horrifyingly accurate with his spear, he actually pierced right through the eye.

……

In the process of climbing up the staircase, the fire hammer squad encountered three monsters, which was considered quite lucky. Out of these three monsters, one of them actually charged up from the ground level. At that time, Luo Feng and Gao Feng were at the back of the team, so naturally it was Luo Feng who had to cleanly kill the G level monster.

※※※

After exiting the staircase, the six members of the fire hammer squad arrived at the rooftop of the 21 story residential apartment.

“Shut the door to the staircase, shut it completely freaking tight!” commanded Gao Feng, “Stop any monsters from running up here to the rooftop”.

“Yes’.

Luo Feng and Zhang Ke went to close the steel doors of the staircase, and found a steel rod to jam the door.

“Phew, we can finally loosen up a bit” a rare smile appeared on Zhang Ke’s face. He directly sat on his bottom on the roof and took out some high carb food and water.

“Everyone brought their binoculars right” said Gao Feng, “Everyone take out their binoculars and look down from the roof and try to find a commander level monster! Remember, don’t expose your body too much; it’ll be a bit troublesome if a monster discovers you!”. However, it was actually very safe on the rooftop.

The residential apartment was 21 stories high, so most of the monsters couldn’t climb up from the outside anyway.

Even if a commander level monster commands the monsters to slaughter their way up, how wide is the staircase? The threat wasn’t large. The fire hammer squad has enough time to completely escape.

“Start searching for a commander level monster”

“Yo guys, time to start finding some monsters”

Luo Feng also took out his binoculars from his bag, and some supporting tools like screws. Everyone brought them, since they weren’t heavy.

He squatted onto the side of the roof and looked down onto the street. There were large amounts of monsters everywhere he looked: “The city area has at least ten or a hundred times more monsters”. And on one of the streets, one glance showed that there were at least hundreds of monsters walking forward.

Even a warlord level fighter has a slim chance of escaping alive from hundreds of normal monsters.

“Captain, these are all soldier level monsters”

“I don’t see any commander level monsters here either”

Five of the members, including the captain, were all holding their binoculars and looking down from the roof at different spots. Only when standing on a high location could you see far. On the roof of a 21 story residential apartment, you can see really far, and also see many monsters.

“KA!” a steel case opened. The only member of the fire hammer squad who wasn’t using a binocular, Chen Gu, opened the steel case. Other than large amounts of ammunition, there was another long, rectangular shaped wooden case in the steel case. In the wooden case, there were a few mechanical parts, which Chen Gu swiftly assembled.

A moment later——

A silverish gray heavy sniper rifle that was nearly two meters long was assembled. It’s optical aimer device and other things were also completely assembled.

Chen Gu put special bullets into the clip, for a total of ten bullets.

“Captain, notify me if you find a commander level monster” said Chen Gu.

“Yup, you can first sleep for a bit and rest yourself. Leave the search for the commander level monster to us” nodded Gao Feng, while at the same time commanding the others, “Guys, focus and don’t miss anything”. This was the easiest way to hunt for a commander level monster in the city. Staying at a high location lets you see farther.

This is ten to a hundred times faster than searching for a commander level monster on the streets, and also much safer.

Luo Feng, Zhang Ke, the Wei Jia brothers and Gao Feng, the five of them held their binoculars and carefully looked below, while Chen Gu narrowed his eyes and went to sleep while holding his heavy sniper rifle.

Volume 3 Chapter 5: Commander Level Monster

When the six members of the fire hammer squad were searching for a commander level monster and hiding on the rooftop of the blue sky sector’s residential hall…. Around 30 km away from the #0201 country level city on the ruined highway was a six-man elite fighter group rushing towards the #0201 country level city.

All six of them had a tiger shaped medal on their left breast pocket of their battle uniform.

This was the famous “Tiger Fang Squad” of Jiang-Nan city. There were six people in the tiger fang squad: two of them used heated weapons, and the other four used cold weapons. Two of the four that used cold weapons were warlord level fighters, and the other two were advanced warrior level fighters! And the two that used heated weapons were also warlord level!

Actually, as long as you have enough talent, experience, and time, it’s quite easy to reach the warlord level using heated weapons.

Because they rely on their guns and bullets!

“Old Han, have you found that old guy’s position yet?” asked Zhang Ze Hu in a small voice. This Zhang Ze Hu was indeed one of the six members of the tiger fang squad, and was an advanced warrior level fighter. In terms of strength, the tiger fang squad was extremely powerful. The weakest members were both advanced warrior level fighters, and these two were barely away from the warlord level.

“According to the signal flare I left on that old guy, it’s probably 40 km away from us. According to me, I’d think it’s in the #0201 country level city ahead!” said the guy who was holding and looking at a compass-like instrument.

“Finally confirmed the position”

“If we can hunt down this old guy this time, we brothers are gonna be rich”.

The people of the tiger fang squad laughed.

When they were hunting for monsters before, they found the wolf type monster, ‘Hunter’, by chance. There were lots of different classifications for the monsters today. Before the Grand Nirvana period, there were mostly pigs, dogs, cats, cows, and sheep in society. So most of the monsters today are mostly pig type, dog type, cat type, cow type, sheep type, snake type, etc. Monsters like foxes, monkeys, scorpions, wolves, tigers, and jaguars are rarer.

Wolves, tigers, and jaguars were already strong, so after a mutation, they’d become beyond horrifying.

Of course, since there are so many regular monsters, some of them become horrifying existences.

For example, one of the cat type monsters is a legendary existence——Nine Lives Demon Cat!

The Nine Lives Demon Cat is the most frightening monster within the cat type monster category. It has nine tails, and it’s strength surpasses a horde leader! On the entire earth, it’s considered as one of the scariest monsters in the rankings.

……

Since the wolf type monsters have a high reproduction ability, fighters could often encounter a few wolf type monsters this past decade.

And the ‘Hunter’ is one of the most horrifying mutations within the wolf type monster category. They’re also called the king of the wolves——’Silver Moon Wolf’, each silver moon wolf is practically independent, and they love hunting other monsters and fighters. As they’re also sly and cruel, they got the name of ‘Hunter’.

As of now, the weakest known silver moon wolf is a ‘medium commander level monster’, so a head of a silver moon wolf is worth a fortune.

“This hunter we’re chasing is probably a “high commander level”, practically nearing the horde leader level! Thankfully, this hunter was already wounded when we engaged before, so we were able to give it another heavy wound” said the captain of the tiger fang squad, a dark skinned, thin, short man in a small voice, “As of now, we’ve already healed up and regained our strength! This time, we have to grab our chance and hunt down this ‘Hunter’ whose strength has declined greatly”.

“Yes, captain”

The six members of the tiger fang squad were full of fighting spirit! One dead hunter is practically worth more than one or two years of their income.

※※※※※

On the rooftop of one of the 21 story high residential hall in the blue sky sector.

Five members of the fire hammer squad had their binoculars pointed down and were looking carefully. Luo Feng held his binocular with his left hand and his water bottle with his right. He drank a little bit of water, put the binoculars down, tightened up the cap of the water bottle and put it into his back. Only after that did he continue looking downwards with his binoculars again.

“Captain, do we just foolishly wait here?” asked Luo Feng.

“What do you understand?” Gao Feng laughed as he put down his binoculars, “In this area, a 21 story high residential apartment is already pretty high. From the rooftop, we can scan a radius of 5 km with our binoculars. How big is a country level city? Of course, because some of the buildings are blocking, our efficiency isn’t that high. However——this efficiency is already immensely high. Everybody can rest and find monsters. It’s the best way.”

Luo Feng nodded.

“Captain, you guys come look here” shouted Zhang Ke suddenly as he pointed down in a certain direction.

WHOOSH!

The other four ran there, each of them holding their binoculars and looking downwards. Luo Feng also looked towards the direction Zhang ke was pointing at, and through the binoculars he saw that there were horned boars and iron fur boars appearing in some of the streets in the north west direction. There was probably a total of a couple hundred boars, and the number of boars were still increasing in his field of view.

“Hm?” Luo Feng’s eyes flashed. On one of the streets, there was a peculiar monster that was moving slowly and calling upon more pig type monsters. It was completely red and looked like a tank.

“This is the Bloodthirsty Tank?” said Luo Feng out of shock.

Out of the pig type monsters, they are ranked at #2——Bloodthirsty Tank herd. It’s called a bloodthirsty tank, but they’re also a pig type monster. They have a large amount of scales on them and their defense is amazing. At a glance, it resembles an armored tank, and its defense and attack isn’t inferior to a real tank at all.

“It’s a bloodthirsty tank!”

“Man it’s a big catch”

“Captain, according to the color of its scales, it should be around a ‘low commander level monster’. Maybe nearing ‘medium commander level'”.

Some of the fire hammer squad members started arguing.

“Hm”Hm, the price of a bloodthirsty tank is quite high” laughed captain Gao Feng, “even though it’s only a low commander level monster, its price is comparable to medium commander level monsters. This is a great catch! Everybody cheer up”

“Old Chen”

“Chen Gu”

The captain’s voice caused Chen Gu to finally open his eyes. Chen Gu laughed as he stood up, “Yo guys, found a commander level monster?”

“Come and look” laughed Gao Feng.

Chen Gu sprinted over and looked through the binoculars. He was astonished as he said: “Damn, its the bloodthirsty tank that’s ranked second in the pig type monsters. This guy’s defense is crazy; the armor piercing bullets I brought probably wouldn’t even be able to pierce through its scales! Looks like it’s time to use my precious ones”.

“Hurry, bullets aren’t worth that much” persuaded Gao Feng.

Chen Gu was quick; he immediately sprinted to the steel case, took out three blood-red colored bullets, and changed the bullets in the sniper rifle.

“PU!”

Chen Gu laid on the roof and set up his silverish gray heavy sniper rifle. The barrel of the gun reflected the light from the sun. And Chen Gu stuck out his hand to get a feel for the direction, and started doing detailed calculations as he calibrated his optical aimer device. The other five members of the fire hammer squad didn’t dare make a sound.

Suddenly——

“PENG!” a deep sound full of force rang.

In practically an instant, the bullet went through the air and shot through. Not only was the power of this alloyed armor piercing bullet destructively high, but its speed was also a couple times higher than the speed of sound. Because it was faster than the speed of sound, the sonic boom it causes is behind the bullet, which means that the sound won’t reach the monster until after it has been hit by the bullet.

The bloodthirsty tank walked slowly on the street, commanding large amounts of monsters.

“PU!”

The scales between the back of the ear and the neck instantaneously combusted, dramatically blowing up a hole as the bullet forced its way through.

“AO~~” the bloodthirsty tank wailed in pain as it started staggering and swaying around. After it regained its balance, the bloodthirsty tank immediately howled in rage and bitterness over and over. In an instant, the large amounts of pig type monsters that were spread out immediately rushed towards it, and the spot where the bloodthirsty tank was hit started bleeding. It kept howling over and over, but it wasn’t able to determine where the bullet was shot from.

……

On the roof, Chen Gu slightly raised his head and moved the optical aimer device away from his eye as he said confidently: “My luck was pretty good, I hit its vital spot. This bloodthirsty boar didn’t die instantly because its life force is strong, but it’ll fall for sure within 5 minutes”. The first shot is the most effective shot in long ranged sniping because the commander level monster isn’t prepared for it.

However, if the first bullet fails to strike a vital point, then there’ll be trouble.

And a commander level monster has extremely high defense, so its pretty good if a bullet could just pierce through its armor. Because of that, bullets usually concentrate on high penetration powered ‘armor piercing bullets’ and not some of the destructive explosion bullets. If you can’t even get through the armor, then what’s the point of being destructive?

“Nice shooting” laughed Zhang Ke as he gave a thumbs up.

“The skull of a bloodthirsty tank is extremely hard. Even if you get through the scales, the bloodthirsty tank isn’t affected much” laughed Gao Feng, “Chen Gu, this gun is fantastic”. If Chen Gu failed, then they would have to kill all of the monsters guarding the bloodthirsty tank, which is too difficult!

“Don’t praise me too much”

Chen Gu laughed: “Now you guys have to think of a way to get the corpse of that bloodthirsty tank. There are hundreds of monsters surrounding it. And if we’re too slow….. another fighter squad might steal our loot”.

“Don’t jinx it, there are probably at most two or three fighter squads in this country level city”. Gao Feng laughed, “Alright guys, let’s tidy up and depart, to get the corpse down there”.
