Fatal Shot Book 3 Chapter 171
Moreover, they were two Suicide Bombeetle that reached Level 30!
If one were to have asked Feng Luo which, among the seven types of beetles, he did not want to see incubated, the Suicide Bombeetle would definitely have ranked at number one.
Although this sort of one-time consumable beetlewhich required one entire beetle egg and a lot of effort to level upcould deal a lot of damage in that one hit, the total effort invested and the end result was quite disproportionate. After all, it was a one-time attack, so it could only exert its full potential when it had a significant advantage.
For example, if over a dozen Suicide Bombeetles exploded, even if the defended player were a fully equipped Heavy Armor Warrior, only death awaited. However, if the number was low, then it wouldn't have too many applications. After all, this sort of Suicide Bombeetle could be easily destroyed in midair.
However, after reviewing detailed information about the Suicide Bombeetle's stats, Feng Luo discovered that the Suicide Bombeetles weren't as bad as he'd initially imagined. As one of the seven beetles, the Suicide Bombeetle actually possessed two positive traits that the other beetles did not have.
The first was that the bomb target would be infected with a special scent. This scent made it a target of pursuit for the other beetles, which meant that after the Suicide Bombeetle exploded and hit its target, at the very least, until the scent disappeared, it would be extremely difficult for the target to evade Feng Luo's pursuit.
The second was its explosion. The explosion had extremely powerful destructive effects against energy shields and other shield-type skills. However, the prerequisite was that it would have to coordinate with the Spray Beetle for the effect to be maximized! That was because the spot on the energy shield hit by the "spit" of the Spray Beetle would constantly be weakened, resulting in energy fluctuation. If the target were to be hit by the Suicide Bombeetle at that moment, then the damage would be much greater than a normal direct suicide bomb attack. The ability would also have the same effect on the shield and heavy armor of Heavy Armor Warriors!
It was because of this that Feng Luo incubated two of the Suicide Bombeetles that had looked like liabilities, and had even painstakingly brought them up to a pretty high level: Level 30!
Clearly, now was the time to use them!
Apart from that, after the two Suicide Bombeetles crawled out, one dark crimson "scythe" that looked like a blade also crawled out of the wormhole. Compared to the others of its same species, it was a size larger. The Level-35 dark-red Elite-grade Bladed Beetle started to crawl quickly out of the wormhole.
Bladed Beetle, Spray Beetle, and Suicide Bombeetle! The "Beetle Squad" that Feng Luo had incubated for all this time finally began their first co-op battle!
Feng Luo, who had his Eye of the Thunder rifle raised, shot at the Desert Rock Lizard Commander charging toward him while running to avoid the sharp, difficult-to-defend-against Earth Spike of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander.
The bullet drew a light blue trail through the air. Even as Feng Luo kept running, his bullets never missed their mark. All of them hit the energy shield of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander that was around 100 meters away. This sort of marksmanship might have been impossible for him before. However, Feng Luo felt that his accuracy had been improving day-by-day ever since he'd woken up after integrating with the Evolution Virus on the ship in Gray Water.
After half a month, he could even execute such a "dazzling" combat method. However, this sort of shooting was not easy in the slightest. Sweat kept appearing on Feng Luo's forehead.
It was not only because moving at high speed under such intense heat of over 40 degrees was very stamina and endurance-consuming; it was also because the Earth Spike attack of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander was very hard to defend against.
Earth Spike was a basic skill of Earth Manipulators, and, it was the only basic skill that could reach its intended target with obstacles in between. However, the Earth Spikes cast by players would have a short delay before they shot out from the ground. The ground might even change color, in most instances.
As for the Earth Spike of this Desert Rock Lizard, there was no warning, and the attack was also incredibly high!
It was important to note that skill attacks that could trigger Feng Luo's Death Sense were skills that could instantly kill him. With the equipment he had right now, paired with his level up, his HP now exceeded 4,000. For an Earth Spike to be enough to instantly kill him, it showed just how powerful this Commander monster was, even with a simple attack method.
However, it was also a good thing that the attack of the Earth Spike was high enough to insta-kill Feng Luo, since that meant he could rely on the passive skill, Death Sense, to avoid the fatal strike that came from the ground at such extreme times!
In just over a dozen of seconds, the Desert Rock Lizard Commander had charged within 50 meters of Feng Luo.
However, by that time, the two gray Suicide Bombeetles flying in the air had already reached an area above the Desert Rock Lizard Commander's head. The entire belly of one of the Suicide Bombeetles flying above the Desert Rock Lizard Commander started to flush red, but it accelerated suddenly, doubling its speed as it charged downward toward a spot on the energy shield that still had remnants of the corroding poison liquid.
The Suicide Bombeetle succeded in tackling the yellow energy shield of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander. Then it exploded into red and black flames.
Under Feng Luo's continuous shield-breaking energy bullet attacks, the energy shield's color, which had already become lighter, could no longer withstand the impact. It shook violently.
At the same time, Feng Luo seized this opportunity. One shield-breaking energy Bullet reached the energy shield at almost the same time as the collision of the Suicide Bombeetle, crashing into the violently fluctuating energy shield.
The energy shield that was on the brink of shattering finally vanished into thin air after Feng Luo's strike. The huge, three-meter body of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander appeared clearly again in Feng Luo's sights at last.
However, at that time, something happened that surprised Feng Luo.
Due to the success of its partner, the Suicide Bombeetle that Feng Luo had intentionally left behind was ordered, through 24K by Feng Luo, to immediately retreat. He did not want to waste and sacrifice the Suicide Bombeetle that he had painstakingly trained to Level 30 to initiate an attack.
Unexpectedly, at that time, the Desert Rock Lizard Commander suddenly raised its head. A bluish-green forked tongue that was almost as long as its body shot out of its mouth at lightning speed. Then, before Feng Luo could react, the Desert Rock Lizard Commander wrapped up the Suicide Bombeetle that was still in the air and quickly pulled it into its mouth.
"What!?" Feng Luo looked shocked. "Devouring a Suicide Bombeetle, eh?"
But after thinking about it and digesting the situation, Feng Luo could not help but laugh.
As expected, as the Desert Rock Lizard Commander closed its mouth, a huge and muffled exploding sound came from within its mouth. It had eaten something it shouldn't have eaten, and the consequences were beyond dire!
The mouth of the Desert Rock Lizard Commander was forced open by the powerful impact from the Suicide Bombeetle. From Feng Luo's angle, he could see dark smoke rising from the Desert Rock Lizard Commander's mouth. The long, agile, bluish-green tongue was torn in half by the explosion. If Feng Luo were to move closer, he would be able to smell roast meat.
Over its head, there was also a high damage value of almost 8,000!
The Desert Rock Lizard Commander became quite muddled by the explosion in its mouth, and what came after was excruciating pain inside its mouth. In the single eye that it had left, it displayed rage that far surpassed the anger it had felt when its left eye had been taken out.
The only thing was there were no Suicide Bombeetles left in the sky, so its target could only be the 10 dark-red Bladed Beetles on top of the sandhill not far away, which were jumping and running toward it.
At that time, the last Bladed Beetle crawled out of the wormhole, making a total of 10 Bladed Beetles above Level 20, with five of them even exceeding Level 30. With six limbs jumping and running on the sandhill, they charged toward the Desert Rock Lizard not far away.
If one were to have looked down from the sky, the situation would have looked like a group of hunting dogs charging toward a huge tiger.
