Chapter 71

Chapter 71 – The Power of Ranged Weapons

Outside the city .

Tang Yu held a telescope and observed the city gate from the roof of a small building .

The mercenaries were placed and mixed with the army’s infantry phalanx . The armored phalanx was slowly advancing forward .

A shrieking sound was heard from the distance .

Tang Yu froze and looked at the source .

A few small black spot appeared in the sky .

The black spot moved very fast, a flame trail dragged from its tail . He just saw it rising from the shelter, in the blink of an eye, the black spot reached above Maple Leaf Town .




A brilliant fire blooms .

Smoke and dust rose into the sky .

Houses collapsed as the ground trembled .

A smoke cloud rose up in the sky like a blooming flower . The smoke enveloped the entire Maple Leaf Town area .

Tang Yu held his breath .

That was the power of the ranged weapons . The damage was devastating like a nuclear bomb .

No matter how tenacious they were, most demonic beast couldn’t survive from such a devastating explosion .

Especially in the densely populated area like the area around the crack of the abyss, the explosion cleared off a huge amount of demonic beasts .

On the walls, the mercenaries were stunned .

Even the people who had seen great scene during the last day was stunned . For most people, this was the first time they saw such a scene .

Shortly after, their expression changed from shock into ecstasy .

This wave of missiles must’ve wiped out most of the demonic beast . Maybe now there’s not many demonic beast left around the crack . So, they only needed to clean out the leftover demonic beast .

Getting point rewards was too easy .

General Lu Jianjun looked at the screen . It showed the vehicles movement .

The picture wasn’t clear because the signal lost from time to times . The screen showed the explosions in Maple Leaf Town .

Compared to the delighted mercenaries, his face was solemn .

It was hard to locate the missile due to the signal jamming after the doomsday . But because the close distance between the shelter and Maple Leaf Town and the dense amount of demonic beasts, they didn’t really need accuracy .

As the missiles continued firing, General Lu Jiajun was felt distressed .

Their inventory was running low .

It’s impossible to manufacture the missiles . Not just technical issues, but the materials needed were also scarce . Before the doomsday, raw materials and part came from all over the world to produce a high-tech product . But now, even communication was impossible . Not to mention getting materials .

Aside missiles, even Lindong currently couldn’t produce tanks and helicopters .

At least they still could do some repair .

“General, should we enter Maple Leaf Town?”

An officer asked .

Lu Jianjun hesitated . “We shouldn’t underestimate demonic beast . First, send an investigation team to Maple Leaf Town . ”

The officer saluted and turned to leave .

Lu Jianjun’s word stopped the officer, “Tell them to be careful and return alive . ”

Alive .

A single word .

But the weight was very heavy .

They lacked of investigation method after the doomsday so they had to send an investigation team . That’s why the scouts fighting on the front line were often the most severely injured .

Lu Jianjun already knew .

But he had no choice .

He had to get the bigger image of the scene .

It would be great if the Academy of Sciences could develop a new methods for remote investigations .

After their sacrifices, news soon came back to the shelter .

As expected, most of the demonic beast in Maple Leaf Town died in the explosion, leaving only a small part . Although the leftover demonic beast was still a lot, but they had at least reduced the threat .

Or so they thought .

“Prepare to enter Maple Leaf Town . Proceed cautiously . Do not hesitate to open fire on demonic beast . ”

The rumbling steel torrent moved forward . Crushing everything on its path .

The loud movement attracted the leftover demonic beast . The muzzle of the tank aimed forward and fired, destroying the demonic beast in front of them . They needed to eliminate everything, even if it was a fourth of fifth awakened demonic beast .

On the outskirt of Maple Leaf Town .

Buildings around here weren’t destroyed by the explosion . Most of them remained intact but moss covered the walls, leaving quite a historical scenery .

From time to time, demonic beast swarmed from the buildings to the street .

Da da da!

Gunshots sound kept ringing .

Some demonic beasts that rushed towards the steel torrent were quickly slained by the mercenaries .

Human and demonic beasts, fought for survival .

Occasionally, some mercenaries were injured and died from the attack . That was expected . The convoy slowly advanced forward to the crack of the abyss .

……… .

Maple Leaf Town, on top of a building .

Tang Yu held a telescope in his hand . He was observing silently .

He wasn’t looking at the battle, instead, he was looking for some time .

The official team of Lindong, with the Chinese military as the main force and other top-rank teams on their side .

Tang Yu was looking for Lin Wei’s team .

“Found him!”

He found the most suitable team met the requirements from the information gathered by Gray Blade .

That team was strong, most of them were hunters . They could easily push away the obstacles that were blocking the road . Even they could easily kill some powerful demonic beasts with their teamwork .

After thinking for a while, Tang Yu took out a mirror-like item from the space backpack .

[Detection Lens: It can detect an enemy’s strength from a long distance and mark the enemy . The marking duration is one week]

This was one of the items Tang Yu bought after refreshing the market items .

This consumable item suits his need right now .

It’s effective and cheap . Well, the later point was the most important .

In addition to investigation, this item also had a mark function .

Tang Yu guessed that after solving the crack of the abyss, Lin Wei would eventually find the territory .

Most likely he would arrive at the doorstep .

But hey, he could monitor him .

“Elaine, your senses are the most highest among us . Do it . ”

Elaine nodded and took the lens .

Her eyes turned ice blue . Her long mage robe moved without any wind . Her hood fell, showing her sky-blue hair fluttered in the air .

The lens in her hand shone bright .

Tang Yu stood beside her, looking downward just to see her delicate collarbone under her neck . In front of her chest, she held the detection lens on her hands .

On the mirror surface of the lens, a picture slowly appeared .

The lens zoomed to the distance, as if they were looking from a camera from above . Lin Wei’s team was visible in the mirror .

Although they were not an army, they had heavy weapons and equipment such as tanks and artillery . There also a second-rate teams equipped with armored vehicle and heavy machine guns .

Most of them are well-equipped hunters . One by one, their strength was recorded by the lens .

From the bird’s eye view, the lens finally fixed on a middle-aged man .

Tang Yu was almost sure that man was Lin Wei himself .

At this moment, Lin Wei wasn’t on the armored car . But instead, he walked slowly, surrounded by several guards .

The guards’ strength shown on the lens were incredibly high .

And Lin Wei was hidden among them .

He observed closely .

The team was advancing slowly not because the demonic beast attacks, but Lin Wei intentionally maintained a slow speed .

From this alone, Tang Yu could see Lin Wei’s selfishness .

However, that’s not important . His point was to observe Lin Wei’s strength .

It’s a pity they didn’t have an ultra-long-range attack method . Otherwise, discreet assassination also great .

Direct attack definitely wouldn’t work .

No matter how confident Tang Yu was, he was certain the three of them couldn’t win against Lin Wei’s team .

For now, it’s better to observe quietly .
