Chapter 1063: Decoy Trap
After Feng Zi ordered the Type-VI Hunting Robot to send everyone flying, she removed the obstacles in the middle of the road to allow Zhang Heng’s car to pass by. Then, she charged the robot to move forward again.
With the massive droid ahead of him, clearing the way like a snowplow, Zhang Heng rushed through four sentry posts in one go. Finally, he was getting closer and closer to the white signal tower. However, this was also the furthest he could go. After passing the fourth checkpoint, the excavator directly cut off the road in front of him.
Zhang Heng stopped the car and alighted with all his equipment.
A little further ahead, the Type-VI Feng Zi was controlling was already engaged in a battle with the guards. The sound of gunfire and the shouts of some people could be heard. Soon, nonetheless, everything returned to normal.
Qiu Ming followed closely behind with a gun in his hand. He got up and ran with Zhang Heng, ducking in and out and to the left and right through the road that had been dug out, keeping a lookout for their surroundings.
So far, everything was going smoothly. With the modified Type-VI, the two of them didn’t encounter much trouble. All that said, the situation wouldn’t be so optimistic in the future.
In fact, Qiu Ming had already seen a destroyed Type-VI. In order to kill this robot, Mr. G’s side had obviously invested a lot of money. They used an unknown amount of explosives to directly blow up a massive 10-meter-crater into the ground. Other than the robot in the center being directly blown up, many human corpses were also strewn around the surroundings. It seemed that they were unlucky ones who didn’t make it to safety in time, buried together with the machine.
At this moment, the two heard the sound of an explosion in front of them. It wasn’t that terrifying, though, and should indicate that the Type-VI Feng Zi was controlling had got hit by a rocket launcher or something. Fortunately, with the droid’s defensive and self-healing abilities, there shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Sure enough, not long after that, the sound of the explosion quickly disappeared.
Feng Zi, who was 30 kilometers away, was now in her complete bloodthirst mode. She sat cross-legged in an underground warehouse, surrounded by all kinds of cheap pirated dolls. Beside her feet was a bottle of coke she bought from the vending machine, but because she had been fighting, she didn’t have time to drink it.
Admittedly, Feng Zi had been cautious when she first took over the robot. More than once, she would subconsciously give the order to dodge an attack, and as time passed, and she experienced more and more battles, she finally understood what Zhang Heng meant when he said, “Don’t worry, just focus on the attack and not the defense.”.
Because of the Type-VI Hunting Robot’s exceeding robustness, Feng Zi realized that normal attacks would cause it to suffer little or no damage. Even if it took a rocket launcher hit, the deformed metal shell would quickly recover.
Feng Zi couldn’t be blamed for being overly cautious. She had seen Zhang Heng fight the Type-VI before, and from the looks of it, Zhang Heng had only used a knife to cut the robot into pieces. Thus, she had some doubts about the robot’s strength in the beginning.
She was, however, experiencing a completely different thing now. She felt like a brave warrior who had picked up a god’s equipment in a game, gone from being a noob in the beginner village to a ruthless experience harvester. This excited her completely—the commands were becoming more and more unrestrained, and she had unknowingly pulled away from Zhang Heng and Qiu Ming.
As Feng Zi continued to drive the Type-VI Hunting Robot on a test run, Zhang Heng and Qiu Ming finally encountered their first battle. As they walked, Zhang Heng suddenly opened his mouth and said to Qiu Ming, “Squat.”
Although the latter did not know why Zhang Heng said that, Qiu Ming, unlike Feng Zi, clearly understood Zhang Heng’s strength. Therefore, as soon as Zhang Heng opened his mouth, he immediately squatted without hesitation.
The next moment, a sniper round landed on the concrete road behind him.
Qiu Ming had already found some cover and crawled into it without needing Zhang Heng to remind him. On the other side, Zhang Heng was also hiding behind a stone slab.
“Do we need to recall the robot?” Qiu Ming asked.
“No need. We can solve this small problem ourselves.” Zhang Heng shook his head. Then, he took out Lego blocks from his bag and spent two minutes assembling them into a sniper rifle. Upon inserting the Infinite Building Block, he completed the last step of its materialization.
Qiu Ming’s eyes almost popped out of their sockets when he saw this. He didn’t know what words to use to describe his feelings anymore. He was already beyond shocked to see Mr. G’s men drill a hole in the second floor, but at least he knew how the other party did it. Zhang Heng’s building block turning into a sniper was the real wild card. He had no idea how it worked.
With a gun in his hand, Zhang Heng immediately set a simple trap. He took off his coat, put it on the barrel of the gun, and pushed it out of his hiding spot. About three seconds later, a bullet pierced the coat and left a hole in it.
Zhang Heng had roughly figured out the other party’s position from the hole and the previous shot. He then gave Qiu Ming a look, asking the latter to help him attract attention.
Therefore, Qiu Ming extended his gun-wielding hand out of cover and fired wildly in the direction of the bullets. This time, the sniper from afar did not fall for the decoy. He ignored Qiu Ming, who was shooting away happily. Instead, he turned the muzzle to the area Zhang Heng was hiding and held his breath.
In the end, his efforts paid off. In the next moment, he saw a figure jump out from behind the stone slab.
“Got you!” The sniper’s eyes flashed with joy as he pulled the trigger in his hand.
However, when the bullet from the gun’s barrel hit the target, the sniper was shocked to realize that it was still just a coat. There was no one underneath it.
For a moment there, he felt smug, thinking he had seen through Zhang Heng’s tactic. He did not expect to trip over the same stone twice in the next moment. Furthermore, this trip would actually prove fatal.
After the gunshot, Zhang Heng had already dashed out from the opposite direction. He spent a second and a half locking onto the target in the distance, and another half a second to adjust his posture and breathing.
Then, he pulled the trigger.
Zhang Heng aimed at the sniper’s arm, but because of the terrifying kinetic energy the bullet generated, not only could the sniper not shoot again, but he could also lose his entire arm. If he was sent to the hospital late, he might even die from excessive blood loss.
However, considering how he hadn’t been polite with his previous three shots, Zhang Heng had already shown mercy on account of Miss F.
