There was a sudden explosion at the frontlines .
A Tiger II was lifted to the sky by a dark green flash .
20 soldiers hidden in the darkness suddenly snuck out as they launched a surprise attack on the northwest corner of the circle formed by NAC . They continued to push forward while they fired simultaneously . The raindrops exposed their outlines, but their outlines were still unclear in the darkness .
Suddenly, two fist-sized crystals flew out from the darkness . They cast an eerie light before they exploded at the NAC infantry's backlines .
Jiang Chen's pupils contracted as he gazed at the explosions in the distance .
He knew exactly what they were .
The ability to explode crystals .
These people belonged to the Dusk!
The soldiers at the northwest corner immediately responded as they started firing at the unknown force .
"It's an optical illusion! Bring out your EMPs!" A soldier shouted while ripping off his earpiece . He threw an EMP grenade .
The soldiers nearby all followed as they targeted the area with EMP bombardment . The static noise began to diffuse to the surrounding area and revealed the soldiers in black standing in a triangular formation .
Their black kinetic skeletons looked like full-body jumpers and their fluid rifles had a blue light . Judging by the quietness of their shooting, they were using Gauss rifles powered by electromagnetic acceleration .
Just from the details, their equipment definitely wasn't from wasteland factories made with crude techniques; they were probably manufactured before the war!
And they were the elites of the Dusk Church – the Apostles!
The bullets left waves and ripples on the energy shield . After being exposed, the Apostles didn't panic as they searched for cover and scattered around the destroyed Tiger II while engaging in battle with the First Corps soldiers .
The EMP didn't affect their Gauss rifles as their working principle was based on high power currents accelerating metal projectiles; the effect of EMP on the flow of currents was almost negligible . The penetration power of the Gauss rifle posed a great threat to the soldiers even though the T-3 power armor was enough to defend against the projectiles of the Gauss rifle…
But it was futile .
Faced with the Wanderer Tank, everything was futile .
While the Apostles pushed forward to the Sports Center, putting their lives on the line, the sound of an engine humming appeared from behind them .
The concrete wall collapsed under the impact . The Wanderer tank previously leading the charge circled behind them .
The particle cannon fired and a blue ball of light exploded in the middle of the Apostles' formation . The scattered high energy particles instantly penetrated through their energy shield . At the same time, the coaxial electrostatic cannon started to unleash its power .
The 2 kg shells swept through at a rapid speed which caused a series of blasts in the rain . The cannon forced the Apostles to remain in their position before they were shredded . Faced with the Wanderer tank, their advantage of stealth was no longer existent .
Their fate was determined . The mutated humans and the Dusk had no more fighting chances .
The mutated soldiers at the Sports Center began to retreat while the NAC soldiers at the periphery of the building rushed in .
But then, a green light sparkled and an explosion filled the battlefield again .
The explosion was at the front of the Sports Center gate . The eight soldiers rushing in were blown a street away .
Jiang Chen narrowed his eyes to see the clouds of dust drifting apart as a figure walked out .
Red dots locked onto that person's body .
Without a doubt, if he dared to make any moves, he would become a sieve in the next second .
What made Jiang Chen uncertain was the still, calm look on his face .
The rain dampened his clothes, the fur on his collar had been turned into a few muddled strands, and his hands were in his pockets .
"I want to see your boss . "
It was the first thing he said .
"Capture him . " That was Cheng Weiguo's response .
Two soldiers walked up with rifles in hand and pointed straight at his head while marching forward .
"Kneel on the ground and put your hands above your head!"
The person sighed .
"Is this how you worship a god?"
As the voice died, the scene suddenly took a turn .
As if they were being directed by an invisible hand, two steel beams on the ground rose . Before the two soldiers could realize what happened, they were penetrated by the soaring beams .
Even Jiang Chen was shocked by the scene .
"Kill him!" Cheng Weiguo shouted .
The shocked soldiers turned angry as they immediately pressed their triggers .
Their bullets flew, but they all stopped in front of the stranger like flies stuck in a spider web . Like a scene from the Matrix, Jiang Chen's expression turned solemn .
[What kind of technology is this?]
Seeing as the bullets were useless, Cheng Weiguo waved his hand .
With his command, the Tiger II rushed in and targeted the Type-50 electromagnetic cannon at the gate .
The person smiled at the sight and opened his jacket .
The shining gems dangling inside his jacket reflected an eerie dark red .
When Jiang Chen saw this, his pupils instantly shrunk .
Jiang Chen ordered .
Cheng Weiguo looked at Jiang Chen in shock as he didn't understand the decision .
The person smiled with pleasure and raised the flashing red ring on his hand .
"Jiang Chen, I know you're here . Come out! Don't you want to chat with me?"
Blood crystal was a substance with the same structure as crystal but possessed a thousand times the energy . Just a thumb-sized piece could create energy equivalent to one kilogram of tritium going through nuclear fusion .
Jiang Chen heard Lin Lin say that Klein particles in the third dimension was only the tip of the iceberg in terms of its actual energy . Because of this, when Sun Xiaorou tried to assassinate him, just a few small crystals managed to create destructive power similar to a bomb .
The ability to explode the crystals worked by releasing all the energy of the Klein particles . Therefore, once he blew up the blood crystal, the energy released would be far greater than the energy released through one kilogram of tritium in nuclear fusion .
Therefore, for each of the blood crystals in his lap, each of them had power comparable to a hydrogen bomb .
Jiang Chen counted . Including the ring on his finger, he had a total of 121 blood crystals .
Cheng Weiguo saw Jiang Chen walking forward and immediately grabbed him .
"General! You can't-"
Jiang Chen shook his head, signaling Cheng Weiguo not to worry . He insisted on moving forward .
Watching Jiang Chen walk to him, the person smiled joyfully .
"Of course you know your stuff . "
Cheng Weiguo watched Jiang Chen walking to the stranger without any protection . He gulped with uneasiness then signaled the sniper beside him . The sniper understood and raised his sniper rifle cautiously .
Jiang Chen glanced at the bodies penetrated by the beams then looked at the person .
"Introduce yourself . "
Seeing as Jiang Chen wasn't scared at all, the person's smile became brighter and brighter .
"Bo Yu - Yu for space . Or you can call me pope or God . "
