Chapter 201: Fearsome Beast!
Yue Zhong continued to look ahead, only to see that on both sides of the path, there were all sorts of different bullet holes scattered around. There were even massive craters that had been created by explosions.
In front, the wreckage of the Dong Feng warrior vehicle loaded with machine guns was scattered everywhere. However, the thing that creeped Yue Zhong out the most was that 2 IFVs had actually been overturned onto the roadside and pulverized by an unknown force into something similar to discus.
In addition, after a careful observation, Yue Zhong discovered that almost every military vehicle had traces of being penetrated through by a sharp object.
All the signs indicated that reaching the arsenal lying ahead obviously wouldn’t be smooth sailing- rather, the dangers would be numerous and there was even a terrifying existence that could easily destroy a killing machine like an IFV.
“Retreat! All of you retreat outside of this area. Wait for orders!” Yue Zhong immediately ordered as he carefully observed the surrounding environment.
On this lane, two IFVs had already been overturned; even if those two IFVs had joined his fleet, they still might not be of great use.
Bear in mind that these two IFVs were Yue Zhong’s treasures: at the very last battle with the zombie hordes at Qing Yuan County, had there not been four IFVs leading a large number of heavy-duty trucks to grind up those normal zombies, then even if Yue Zhong could bring his men to wipe them out, it wouldn’t have been that easy.
Upon receiving Yue Zhong’s orders and seeing the wreckages of military vehicles strewn all over the ground, Liu Yan also realised the seriousness of the matter and he immediately turned back around with his men.
Right at this time, one after another, giant boars up to 3m tall that resembled miniature tanks appeared before the eyes of various people from one side of the arsenal. They had long, sharp tusks and they were covered in a layer of black scales.
[Level 43 Mutant Beast: Black-Scaled Ferocious Boar! It is a ferocious mutant beast that has both strong defense and attack. Their tusks can easily pierce through everything blocking their way.]
Those Black-Scaled Ferocious Boars obviously didn’t come out to greet Yue Zhong and his men. As soon as they appeared, their eyes all turned crimson and they charged towards Yue Zhong and his men.
After Yue Zhong got into the rear of the Hummer, he took out a Type QJZ89 12.7mm machine gun and crazily opened fire at those Black-Scaled Ferocious Boars charging towards him.
The large-caliber heavy machine gun bullets that could even tear through a Dong Feng warrior vehicle bombarded the bodies of those tank-like Black-scaled Ferocious Boars, making sparks fly off as the bullets were repelled; the bullets had no way of even leaving a mark on those Black-scaled Ferocious Boars.
“Damn! What an abnormal defense!” Upon seeing this scene, Yue Zhong couldn’t help but swear. 12.7mm large-caliber bullets could even pass through the scales of a Mutant Water Snake or the skull of an L2, yet it actually had no effect on these Black-scaled Ferocious Boars.
Evidently, they had extremely abnormal defense and at the very least, their defense was on the same level of existence as the Mutant Rat King’s leather.
In the midst of the fleet, the Type ZPT90 25mm Cannons on top of the 2 IFVs swivelled around and terrifying flames instantly began surging out crazily from them.
Proclaimed by Yue Zhong to be killing machines, the Type ZPT90 25mm Cannons displayed their incomparably mighty firepower. The extremely intense cannon shells exploded on the Black-scaled Ferocious Boars one after another, ripping through that layer of scales with astonishing defense. The explosion made flowers of blood blossom everywhere.
After the cannons had crazily opened fire, a Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s gigantic head was battered into a sieve with fresh blood constantly gushing out. Powerlessly, it collapsed onto the ground.
Seeing that one of its own had fallen to the ground, a clear hint of wariness flashed through the eyes of the other Black-scaled Ferocious Boars. They stared fiercely at Yue Zhong and his men, then raised their heads up to the sky and emitted a huge, pig-like cry.
The next moment, amid the dense forests, countless birds were startled and flew off. One after another, the towering trees toppled over. A gigantic wild boar that was 7m tall and 30m long leapt out from the dense forests and stared coldly at Yue Zhong. Its body was covered in black scales and its eyes flashed with a violent red light; the gigantic wild boar seemed almost indomitable.
[Level 65 Mutant Beast: Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar.]
Upon seeing that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar, Yue Zhong inhaled a mouthful of cold air. That Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar was so huge that Yue Zhong’s 2 IFVs seemed like toys in front of it. He finally understood what thing had crushed the Dong Feng warrior vehicles one after another into discuses.
Even if that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar simply stood quietly in place, it would still give people a sort of heavy, pressurising feeling, as if a powerful aura was billowing around it.
That normal Black-scaled Ferocious Boar already had very abnormal defense, but Yue Zhong still didn’t know how abnormal that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s defense would be.
Naturally, that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar didn’t come out to greet Yue Zhong and then leave; rather, its hooves moved in unison and it leapt up, shuttling through its 23 little brothers like thunder. Very quickly, it rushed to the front of the horde of boars and led the 23 Black-scaled Ferocious Boars to launch an assault on Yue Zhong’s fleet.
The Type ZPT90 25mm Cannons on top of the IFVs crazily spewed out flames and countless terrifying cannon shells bombarded the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s body.
However, the outcome that everyone feared the most occurred. When those 25mm cannon shells that could easily tear through an LAV (light armored vehicle) bombarded the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s body, they actually all bounced off it.
Yue Zhong saw that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar and finally understood how those 2 IFVs had been overturned and trampled into pieces.
“Damn! No wonder the two IFVs were both finished by these monsters. It turned out that there was an abnormal fellow like this!”
Yue Zhong activated the Encompassing Body Armor SKill once again and leapt out of the Hummer. If he didn’t take action, the main battalion that he painstakingly managed would be crushed into pieces by that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar and its little brothers.
As soon as he landed, Yue Zhong immediately pulled out the Type 40 RPG Launcher, the strongest weapon in his possession. He fired at the rampaging Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar with a ‘boom’.
That rocket grenade turned into a streak of light that bombarded the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s massive, chubby face and with a ‘boom’, it exploded.
After the smoke and dust had dispersed, a fist-sized wound was revealed on the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s chubby face.
That Type 40 RPG Launcher had finally torn through that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s defense. However, to a 7m tall Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar that was akin to a building, that fist-sized wound was almost negligible.
Instead, that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar was angered by Yue Zhong’s attack: after it had evolved to Type 2, it had become this area’s overlord-level creature. There simply wasn’t anyone who dared to provoke it, yet right now, there was actually a tiny ant that had bitten him. Evidently, the injury wasn’t heavy, but that still made it exceptionally angry.
That Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar cast aside the fleet, which in its opinion was an existence not even comparable to ants. It leapt up onto a hill and in doing so, it completely crushed a dozen tall trees and the surrounding ground shook.
The Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar had set its eyes on Yue Zhong and charged towards him like a tank; along the way, the trees blocking its charge were all crushed and they collapsed onto the ground. Nothing could stop its charge.
Those 23 little brothers also tightly followed behind their boss and were in hot pursuit of Yue Zhong.
After Yue Zhong launched a rocket grenade, he immediately fled into the depths of the forest without looking back. Even if he had dozens of Type 40 RPG ammunition, he wasn’t certain if he could get rid of that massive, building-like Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar, not to mention that right now, the amount of Type 40 RPG ammunition in his hands wasn’t even five.
Every time that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar took a step, it was equivalent to Yue Zhong taking 5 or 6 steps. SImilarly, in addition to its extremely high agility, the distance between the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar and Yue Zhong crazily decreased.
“What should I do?” Yue Zhong constantly sprinted at a crazy pace, using the support of the bone spears to quickly leap onto a tall tree.
It was just that the Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar actually kept on stubbornly using brute force to snap the trees one after another, its piggy eyes flashing fiercely with a frightening light. Its appearance showed that it wouldn’t stop until it had trampled Yue Zhong into meat paste.
That Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar crushed countless trees that were blocking its way and fiercely collided into the tall tree that Yue Zhong had just jumped up, making it snap.
“Fight!” Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with a hint of a strange light and a bone spear instantly erupted out of his right hand, pushing against that tall tree. Using the reaction force, Yue Zhong was propelled onto that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s body.
When Yue Zhong landed on it, he used both of his hands like hooks to hug it tightly, without daring to let go in the slightest. As soon as Yue Zhong let go, he would be trampled into meat paste by those crazy Black-scaled Ferocious Boars.
That Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar felt that there was someone on its body and constantly shook itself whilst pelting through the forest at high speed.
Lying on the body of that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar, Yue Zhong felt as if he were lying upon a high-speed race car travelling at a speed over 200km/h, and that high-speed race car was constantly changing directions and turning around corners as well. That huge force of drag made both of Yue Zhong’s hands shake until they were sore. If his strength hadn’t already reached 51 points, Yue Zhong would’ve been shaken off much earlier.
Yue Zhong wasn’t able to do anything as he lay on that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar moving at high speed; he could only tightly cling onto its back and he simply didn’t dare to move in the slightest. The slightest movement would result in him being shaken off and sent flying like an artillery shell.
That Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar dashed for sometime before discovering that there was no way to shake off Yue Zhong, who was on its back. It immediately changed tactics and used all of its strength to spring up, reaching 7m into the air before landing.
After it landed, the surrounding ground shook with a huge ‘bang’. Yue Zhong, who was clinging tightly onto its back, also felt as if he had gone into freefall from 7m in mid-air and received the huge impact. Even though the impact on that Type 2 Black-scaled Ferocious Boar’s back had decreased by a lot, it still shook his internal organs, causing him endless pain. If the toughness of Yue Zhong’s body hadn’t reached 38 points, this could’ve given him severe injuries.
