Chapter 85: Powerful S2
TL: Niku; Delivery Man
On the second day, early in the morning, Yue Zhong quickly lead a party including Chi Yang, Liu Yan, and Wang Shuang out to the arsenal. Ji Qingwu remained to guard the household this time.
When they were in eye-shot of the arsenal, they stopped and got out of their vehicles.
Yue Zhong left behind Chi Yang and the men to defend the vehicles while he stealthily made for the arsenal.
He spotted the corpses of the three mutated dogs and felt relief. If they hadn't been eaten, that meant that there were no other large beasts around.
Yue Zhong continued to carefully move forward.
He observed the camp from every angle looking for any mutated beasts. When he found none, he continued on towards the camp.
Yue Zhong stopped around one hundred meters from the entrance. He took the 81 type rifle he was carrying, aimed it at a zombie over a hundred meters away, then pulled the trigger.
A thunderous gunshot rang out, the zombie's head gained a new bloody hole and collapsed to the ground. After learning the Firearms Control skill, Yue Zhong was comparable to a veteran soldier who had gone through several years of rigorous training.
Attracted by the sound, dozens of zombies wearing military clothes immediately started to wobble towards Yue Zhong from within the camp .
Holding the 81 type rifle, Yue Zhong shot and retreated at the same time.
One by one the bullets pierced through the bodies of the zombies. Moving targets were much harder to headshot. Yue Zhong fired off twenty bullets, but only three were headshots. The remaining bullets all hit the zombies in other places.
By studying the firearms control skill, Yue Zhong still hadn't reached the level of hitting continuous headshots. He still needed to continually practice his shooting ability.
After being strengthened by the God and Devil System, he grasped several combat skills, but using up mighty and powerful skills consumed a large amount of stamina and spirit. In addition firearms are plenty powerful. He must master this skill to be able to survive in various situations. It allowed him to kill without expending too much energy.
After shooting twenty bullets, Yue Zhong pulled out his Imitation Tang Sword. He rushed into the zombies like an arrow. He flurried like thunder - beheading the small group of zombies.
When the sword flashed, the small group of zombies heads were sent flying. Filthy blood sprayed everywhere. They were slaughtered by Yue Zhong until there was almost nothing left.
Yue Zhong gathered up the twenty or so life coins dropped by the zombies, and he walked with White Bones to the military camp.
When Yue Zhong had just entered the military camp, a blue-green phantom shot from the side towards him like a laser.
Yue Zhong was greatly startled, only able to slightly lean his body, the shadow step skill hadn't been able to be used before the phantom had already begun to claw at his heart.
Under the claws of the blue-green phantom, Yue Zhong's defensive clothing started to change shape, a portion from the place in contact bubbled up in Yue Zhong's mental abyss. Clearly the strength of the claw was extremely terrifying, if it weren't for Yue Zhong's level three defensive clothing, his heart would have been ripped out while still alive
At this time, White Bones who was standing at Yue Zhong's side ruthlessly chopped his axe through the air towards the blue-green phantom.
The blue-green phantom was like a gust of wind, slightly shifting towards the side. After avoiding White Bone's formidable hatchet, it continued to claw at Yue Zhong's body.
Yue Zhong painfully resisted and initiated the skill shadow step. His speed finally managed to catch up with the blue-green phantom. His body slightly leaned, his leg fiercely kicked, booming into the phantom's body.
The blue-green phantom was immediately sent flying dozens of meters like an artillery shell.
Yue Zhong finally saw clearly the image of the monster that nearly had his life.
Its stature was a little smaller than an ordinary person, it had a layer of blue-green skin, its legs were large and powerful, and its body wasn't rotting anywhere. Its eyes were both filled with blood.
"Level 30 type II, agility evolution infected S2. Possesses ghostly speed. Possesses skill virus infection, able to turn living organisms into the infected."
"Damn, turns out it is a type II zombie. Zombie evolution is so fast, how are humans supposed to stay alive!" Yue Zhong lowered his voice and scolded. He raised the stinger towards the S2 and fired a shot.
As soon as Yue Zhong fired, the S2 kicked, speedily flashing to the side.
Sounding like thunder, the Stinger bullet boomed into a building on the military camp, exploding a fist sized hole in the wall.
The S2's image flashed, zig-zaging like lightning bolts towards Yue Zhong. The S2's agility was extremely high. Even though Yue Zhong's shooting skill was similar to an elite soldier, he was completely unable to hit the opponent.
Yue Zhong thought of something while looking upon the S2 which was fast like lightning, and he started a defensive technique.
White Bones, who was always protecting at Yue Zhong's side, changed into a flowing light falling onto Yue Zhong's body. It condensed into a bone armor covering his whole body. The middle of the chest armor had a skull, and his elbows and knees extended out with ten centimeter bone spikes. His most critical area, the head, was also covered by bone. There were only two openings for his eyes and a space for breathing.
In the blink of an eye, the S2 already appeared behind Yue Zhong, a claw stuck onto Yue Zhong's head.
The astonishing transformation of White Bones counteracted a large majority of the S2's attack. Yue Zhong resisted with great difficulty the pain booming from his head, and he fiercely thrusted the thorn from his elbow towards the S2.
Yue Zhong was only barely a thread slower than the S2 while in the Shadow Step state, and after learning the Agility Solidification skill. His elbow spike struck like a clap of thunder into the S2's abdomen. The sharp bone spike penetrated through the S2's body.
The S2 felt no pain, and continued to claw at Yue Zhong's skull. It slashed five or six times creating a scratch on Yue Zhong's bone armor.
Yue Zhong used the spike that was pierced through the S2 and flung it into the ground. Using his foot, he pressed onto the S2's body. No matter how much it struggled, he forcefully held it under his foot. Pulling at the imitation tang sword at his waist, Yue Zhong decapitated the S2.
The S2's skull tumbled from its body. A large experience orb flooded into Yue Zhong's body. At the same time the S2's body also released a skill book, a blue treasure box, two white treasure boxes, and four hundred life coins.
"You leveled up to 19, please distribute two stat points."
"You leveled up to 20, please distribute two stat points and one skill point!"
The sweet level up noise sounded in Yue Zhong's mind.
