Part 35: Some Dam Mission (Deluge)Part 35: Some Dam Mission (Deluge)
With the completion of the Elerium Generator, were going to start preparing for the Psionic Testing Labs, commissioning a few SHIV upgrades, and some more toys for the troops Now, lets see how everyones doing.
Ehhh I guess not everyone is as open-minded as XCOM. My grandma threatened to cut my parents out of the will if they, themselves, did not disown me. *sigh*
What? Ahh, hell, Im so sorry!
Something about no alien contamination, but I bet they wouldnt be bringing it up if I wasnt suddenly black.
That is grade-A bullshit. You ever need another family, girl, mines got plenty of room.
Thats really sweet of you, Mr. Van Doorn, but dont worry Im tougher than I used to be. A lot tougher.
No, you have to rotate your shoulder just a bit to the left to get to the sleeve to open for the lubricant there!
Ah! I see. Thank you. This means so much to me.
Hey, women of steel have to stick together. I hope we can afford two MEC suits soon, itd be kickass if we could deploy together.
Ah, great! My rifle. I really missed this, I felt naked without it.
You were naked without it.
Shut up, Zin! You know what I mean.
And Ive learned a few new tricks to go with it, too. Park me somewhere high and they die.
Hugo, what the hell are you mixing into your smoke grenades?
Incense! Hey, its legal. Ask Dr. Vahlen if you dont believe me!
I think I oops, Councilmans calling!
Commander. Intelligence provided by the first and only EXALT operative you captured in France has lead to the identification of a vehicle believed to contain something classified as a living weapon. However, we only became aware of the vehicle due to aliens targeting it attempting to steal it back from EXALT. You must act quickly.
Crap! Okay, I want my heaviest-hitters on the mission.
Team, youre being outfitted with multiple arc throwers because a sub-objective is capturing as many live aliens as you can, particularly Mutons. Their guns explode unless we capture them nonlethally, and since were learning their secrets, its much easier and less expensive to capture weapons than make our own. Plus, they might come in handy against that living weapon.
Ive got a new invisibility grenade that might come in handy against the aliens, too.
Were ready. Lets do this!
Bad news, everyone. The aliens stopped the truck on a dam, and the firefight damaged the structure. The entire thing is cracking apart. This mission will require speed and power.
Shit. I cant swim in this thing!
Theres a lot of blood all over here.
I can feel the dam ground shaking. Isnt there a dam safety valve somewhere to relieve the dam pressure?
Yeah, theres one over here!
Pretty high, that tower would make a good dam sniping position. Hilda, get set up over there!
Shit! Theyre beaming mutons down on top of us!
I see a UFO overhead! Its a dam invasion!
Kill one and weaken the other so I can stun it!
Muton 1 down!
Muton 2 damaged!
Alright, here I go!
Got him! Thats one more free plasma rifle for us. General, Queen, get to the valves.
Good, this ought to give us a few more dam minutes
Phew, look at all that dam water go!
Stop doing that!
Hssk! XCOM, you cannot interfere with our dam mission!
Got one in my sights. Consider him dead.
More coming down, ack!
Eva, lay into that mectoid!
R-right! My lasers customized for anti-armor. *inhale*
Great work, Eva, Ill finish him off.
Van Doorn, shock that Sectoid next to you.
YOU LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT! HOLD STILL OR ILL RIP OFF YOUR ARMS AND MELD THEM BACK ON BACKWARDS!
Another Mectoid! AAAH!
Cancel that, Mectoid down. Got a lucky headshot when I double-tapped em.
We still have to keep moving up. And keep throwing more safety valves.
SHIT! Where the hell were you hiding!?
About halfway there, team.
Why didnt the pilot land us on the other side of the dam? Jesus!
More of them!
Dont have a good shot, theyre hiding back there somewhere.
Yeah? Well, they cant hit what they cant see.
Whoah! I I can see through myself!
Well just camp here for the next 30 seconds, wait for him to make the next move. Were all fine.
OW! FUUUCK! Leroy, I wasnt invisible!
Oh, shit! Sorry, Cam!
Dammit! Almost burned right through my armor!
Lets see how you like it, asshole!
More dam Mutons! Hit em, girl!
Great job! One down, one left.
Thats the last of the dam valves. We cant relieve any more dam pressure after this. shit, now Im doing it!
Wounded the guy on the truck! Queen!
Everyone push forward and reload.
These bodies arent civilians, theyre EXALT! We must be getting close to the truck.
SHIT! Two mechs at once!
How many dam aliens are there?!
What do we do?!
Uh Hilda, disable one of the Mechtoids. The rest, kill as many targets as you can and huddle under the ghost grenade if we need to. And this time dont leave me hanging if you do!
AAAH! Guns dry!
Last dam sectoid down, finally!
Got the first one! Hold on, I can hit the other one with my disabling shot
Got him, his guns are broken, rush him!
It worked, his interception fire didnt kick in.
You like shoving green shit down peoples throats, dont you, you overcompensating little fucker? Try some of mine!
Mimi, finish him!
YeeeeAAAAH! IM CRUSHING YOUR HEAD!
Whew. Didnt even need the second ghost grenade but good plan, Cam.
Hey, you gotta have a backup plan or people die. Im just lucky Hildas learned how to shoot faster
Sorry for not ghosting you earlier. Let me patch your armor up.
Too many dam cracks, this place is going down fast! Get up to that truck so we can see what the big dam deal is!
Whatevers in here, it was something dozens of EXALT guys were willing to throw their lives away on be careful!
Careful, somethings rattling around in there.
Ill get the door.
Dead EXALT guy
Hello? Anyone else in th-
*huff huff huff*
Hey! Hold it right there!
Turn around slowly, please. Were not here to hurt you, but
Please. You dont understand! You have to stop them! They killed everyone!
DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY KILLED!?
Shit, not again, aiiie
Sorry! Sorry. I do that sometimes. I
You did all this? You can kill them?!
Honey, we slaughter them.
Its not that hard. You just shoot em.
Please, take me with you!
That was the idea! Lets go!
Mission complete, team. Grab that lady and extract immediately. Obviously, shes something special a human with minor psychic abilities like the aliens.
Shes lucky I didnt make her head explode with my brain spikes.
Great job, team. Your skills are continuing to sharpen.
I was afraid nobody would believe me
You wouldnt believe the things weve done. Ive seen shit that would turn you white.
Or various other colors, for that matter
Theres more test subjects still out there oog. Im going to need therapy for years after this.
Hey, you can be therapy buddies with Yoko! Where is she, anyway?
Melding. She volunteered for a special mission, but needed modification first. Youll know more soon
To Be Continued!
