Ace Of The Dragon Division Chapter 588
Chapter 588 This Opponent Is Beyond Our Assessment
Update 2 months ago
Correct. Xu Cheng would never let them inside to see what was going on exactly, so he had to come out early.
The headquarters realized the live feed had suddenly been cut off.
The technician shouted out in horror, "Oh no! He destroyed the drone. He was actually able to hit it and at such a high altitude no less!"
The commanders immediately said to Casey and the others on the scene, "Evacuate immediately and stop the attack for now. We cant give you an exact view as the drone has been destroyed. Youre now in a blind spot."
Casey: "So how did he see us?"
HQ: "I dont know."
Caset: "Was it just luck?"
HQ: "Dont kid yourself, how could he hit the only weak spot from just a guess?"
Casey: "Isnt he only one person? We know how to kill him!"
Having said that, Casey turned around and said to his comrade, "Pique, youre in charge of that sniper 1 km away in the 45-degree direction."
Pique nodded, grabbed a dagger and a pistol as he rolled out of the car, and raced in that direction.
He was fast and used the sand as cover; he was confident that he was perfectly fast enough to avoid the bullets.
Bang! He had run out for less than a minute.
Casey and the others were hiding behind the car, and when they heard the gunshot, they didnt know if it had hit Pique or not. So Casey tapped on his headset and said, "Pique, do you copy? Respond."
There was no response from Pique.
Casey panicked. "Pique!"
Still no response.
Casey growled at the headquarters, "I need a new drone to take a look at the whole situation. Pique isnt answering, can you guys see if hes okay or not."
Pique had actually been taken out by a single shot and had died.
The commanders were also a bit anxious. "It will take five minutes for the nearest drone to fly to your area."
When the drones from the other areas finally flew close, their live feeds were suddenly cut off just as they reached where Casey and the team was.
"FUK, its been hit again, what the fck is this?" The commanders were furious as this was the fourth drone that had been destroyed.
"The drone got destroyed again. Theres no way to see if Pique is okay or not, one of you needs to go over for support."
Casey looked at his other comrades. "Bruce, you go check it out. Ill cover you."
Casey fired a shot at the other mine areas, exploding a mine and causing the sand and dust to rage even more so it would interfere with that snipers vision.
Bruce took the opportunity and charged towards the direction that Pique had headed towards to check on him.
He ran across about two-hundred meters when he saw Piques dead body with a shot through his nose bridge.
Same lethal spot. Bruce could feel the goosebumps all over his body as he quickly reported to everyone. "Listen, this sniper is not simple. The three shots hes fired so far have all been hits, and he seems to know where our armors weak points are. Hes a tough opponent and Pique was killed with the same shot through his face"
The sound of a gunshot was heard in the open space before Bruce could finish his words.
The shot could be heard by the commanders as well as the sound of his voice that got cut off.
Casey asked in a somewhat tentative manner, "Bruce?"
Cassey was worried. "Bruce? Dont you f*cking play with me, answer if you can hear me!"
The commanders sighed on the other side. "He probably died!"
Casey and the rest of the team were in rage.
"Sh*t!" The group of soldiers were furious.
They havent executed any of their plans yet and four of their comrades had been killed within the blink of an eye, especially that they died without a word. They didnt even see the enemy clearly and only knew that there was a sniper. Yet the most hateful and infuriating thing was knowing where he was and what gun he was using, but there was no way to go over and kill him.
Recalling that gesture where he raised his hand at the drone, it was total provocation!
The commanders seemed to sense the opponents instincts and knew that he was a master with extreme skills. So far, he had fired four shots and four soldiers had been killed; and, puzzlingly, it didnt seem like his vision was affected by the sand and wind.
"Casey, listen. This opponent is far beyond our initial assessment, and you need to retreat immediately. This area may not be a big fish but rather a big shark!" the commander shouted to the remaining twenty-four soldiers on the scene.
"Sir, we havent even seen their basecamp yet and weve lost four men. Youre telling us to retreat? Do you want us to lose our dignity? To have our nations dignity become a joke for others, allowing our M Nations special forces to be mocked for being unable to even wipe out the weakest District 7?" Casey said, "Im the captain, Ill take command of this battle."
The commanders didnt actually want to call off the attack in such a mess either. "Then you guys be careful, Ill bring in drones from other areas as soon as I can to help you from above."
Casey temporarily turned off his headset and commanded, "Listen guys, this sniper might just be a sharpshooter, lets get in the truck and take him out."
"But we would step on mines. We havent completely cleared the mines in front of us yet, and its dangerous to drive the car over. If hes waiting for us at that place, there must be a mine in between."
He had a reasonable prediction.
Sweat broke out on Caseys forehead as he pondered how to take out the sniper first.
"In that case, well creep forward and put our helmets in front to protect our heads and faces from showing. Bring the minesweeper and well get over these mines."
The others felt the plan would work.
Using the creeping method with their physique, they could easily reach 1 km within a short amount of time, especially since they didnt need to crawl all the way to the other side; they just needed to spot Xu Cheng first so their snipers could accurately take him out.
Having thought that, the twenty-four soldiers crawled away from the vehicle and scattered as they all headed towards Xu Chengs direction.
The commanders said to the technician immediately, "Transfer the other areas drones to this battlefield immediately. Fast! Head there with the fastest flying speed!"
"I will need fifteen minutes according to the direction and speed."
Fifteen minutes later, the technician said, "Sir, this time Ive taken the drone to its maximum altitude. I can see that our soldiers have crossed the area filled with sandy wind."
"Do you see the sniper?"
"Yes, hes still at the same spot."
The commanders immediately picked up the headset and said to Casey, "The sniper is still there. Be careful. Weve got our eyes again, so we can see his movements."
"Good, he cant hurt us now at all even if he could hit us. You guys continue to monitor him."
Xu Cheng looked through his lens at the group of soldiers who were actually holding their helmets in front of themselves so his bullet wouldnt be able to penetrate through. It would be a little painful if he hits their shoulders, but that pain was perfectly bearable for this group of well-trained and powerful soldiers.
"Want to cross the minefield? Did you ask me?" Xu Cheng smiled slightly.
