Fatal Shot - Chapter 562
Chapter 562: Commander Grade Combat Beetle
A group of adult Level 35 Mutant Wild Boars were lying lazily on the ground enjoying beams of sunlight shining through the leaves of the primitive jungle.
The Mutant Wild Boars were a lot more muscular than the ones on Earth. In particular, the Wild Boar King in the middle of the group was over five meters in size. Its boar tusks were more like two enlarged spears.
Suddenly, at the edge of the group, a seemingly thinner and weaker Mutant Wild Boar’s ears twitched as if it had heard something.
The Mutant Wild Boar’s grey eyes opened. It got up from the hot mound that was dug up to help with cooling the ground.
Its front hoofs stomped on the ground a few times. It was probably feeling irritated that it was disturbed from a pleasant dream. After, it moved towards the source of the sound.
As the lowest level and lowest-ranked adult male boar of the group, it was assigned the task of patrolling the outer area.
If it did not go, it might be exiled from the group by the leader.
Although all the female boars were taken by the leader, staying in the group was the only way to be guaranteed survival.
As the weak and thin boar snorted, it used its snout to fumble about the location where it heard the noise earlier. It did not detect the smell of any odd creatures.
However, just as it prepared to go back to its nap…
A sound suddenly came from the tree above. A dark red shadow descended upon it at an unprecedented speed.
Bright red damage numbers popped up above the Mutant Wild Boar’s head. Its body was directly split in half by a Sickle
The Mutant Wild Boar let out an agonizing shriek. Although it was the weakest Wild Boar of the group, it was only in relative terms.
In reality, for a Level Mutant Wild Boar, it was about two meters long. In terms of its size, it was not weaker than a normal tiger.
As a Wild Boar, although it did not have a lot of attack methods, due to its daily activity of scratching its skin on rocks and a thick layer of fat, its defense was not inferior to the armor of humans.
However, the defense was still easily destroyed by the enemy that it had failed to even see clearly.
However, the Mutant Wild Boar’s cry only lasted for a brief moment.
A tail with a retractable reverse hook had pierced into its heart the moment the Wild Boar started to shriek, emptying the Wild Boar’s quite emptied HP bar. While the tail with a sharp end was covered in a dark red shell, it was incredibly flexible as if it was boneless.
The entire process did not take more than half a second.
The cry of the weaker Wild Boar before its death still managed to wake up the rest of the Wild Boars.
One after another, the Mutant Wild Boars quickly got up from their mounds. They shook their hoofs and charged toward the dark red creature standing beside the corpse of their guard boar. The creature was half the size of the dead wild boar; however, it had a pair of large sickle-like weapons that did not fit its body size.
Although they sensed from the creature that they had never seen before an aura of superiority. Their minds were simple and they were extremely irritable. Once they were enraged, these Mutant Wild Boars would charge straight at a Boss Grade monster, so they were definitely not intimidated by this enemy’s aura.
“Roar, roar, roar…”
Five male Wild Boars, which were larger than three meters in size, let out angry roars. Their hoofs galloped on the ground, leaving dust in the air as they thrust their spear-like tusks towards the enemy’s position.
“Rumble, rumble, rumble…”
However, by the time they reached the monster with the dark red sickle, the “sickle monster” suddenly leaped into the air. With a speed that the Wild Boars could not react to, the monster landed behind them.
The male Wild Boars that were impatiently charging forward slammed into surrounding trees since they could not react in time.
While they broke off large parts of the trees, their tusks also pierced deep into the wide tree trunks. After being stunned by the powerful impact, damage numbers in the thousands popped up above their heads.
High-pitched shrieks of female boars and young boars came from behind them.
The dark red monster had jumped into the group of female boars and young boars behind them. As it leaped between locations, it transformed into a dark red shadow.
Fresh blood splattered and filled the space that it passed through. The female and young Wild Boars did not have the strength to resist.
The male wild boars roared angrily. They pulled with all their strength as they struggled to pull their tusks deeply entrenched into the tree trunks. They turned around and galloped as they charged to save their mates.
However, at that moment, their vision turned dark suddenly as a ball of dark green liquid suddenly fell in front of them.
The moment the ball of green liquid landed on the rotten dried leaves on the ground, a dark green mist instantly rose up into the air. The green mist spread and quickly enveloped their bodies and sight.
“-685, -767, -655…”
Damage numbers of several hundred per second popped up above the heads of the Wild Boars that were enveloped in the green mist. Their thick skin’s physical defense was completely useless against the attack of the poisonous gas.
The young boars that were lower than Level 20 twitched and dropped on the ground one by one.
At that moment, a thundering roar rang in the air. The Wild Boar King, that did not move until then, stood up.
Streams of air could be seen exiting the angry King Boar’s nostrils. The gush of air sent the dried leaves on the ground flying. The green mist also dissipated from the airflow.
However, its eyes did not stare at its concubines and offspring. Instead, it turned around and stared towards the location where the green liquid came from.
There was a large black beetle-shaped creature that was slightly larger than the Wild Boar standing in that location.
On top of the creature was a creature with a snake-like head that was two meters in length, and had green keratin scales. This was the creature that was spitting out all the green liquids that were damaging its subordinates.
The Wild Boar King moved its hoofs and charged its body that was as big as a one-story building with its spear-like white tusks toward the large black beetle-like creature.
It wanted to turn the black creature along with the creature on top of it into minced meat.
However, it seemed like the Wild Boar King had miscalculated. When it slammed into the beetle that was bigger than it, its tough tusks that could smash boulders into pieces and could break trees over a dozen meters tall failed to pierce through the slick and smooth shell of the beetle. It was bounced back a certain distance.
Additionally, the powerful impact that accompanied its charge had also failed to push the beetle back at all.
The Wild Boar King let out another roar.
As a Level 39 Commander Grade monster, apart from the Quasi-Boss Grade Cave Spider Queen residing in the valley, it was considered one of the kings of the region. Due to its size and strength, even tigers and bears did not dare to face it head-on.
However, right now, it was at a disadvantage in that head-to-head collision.
The irritable and stubborn personality of the Wild Boar King showed and it stopped caring about its concubines and subordinates anymore. It backed off a few steps before charging at the black large beetle once more.
At the same time, a light mud-yellow layer appeared over it.
Two large creatures slammed into each other.
The result was one of the hard and tough tusks of the Level 39 Wild Boar King, that could crush rocks and smash boulders, broke from the root. Fresh blood flowed like a river from the wound.
The large black beetle’s shell was also covered in a layer of mud-yellow substance. Moreover, the yellow of the beetle was a few times darker and thicker than the Wild Boar.
Around ten meters above the battlefield, a thumb-sized transparent beetle floated in the air. Its outer appearance was exactly the same as normal Scout Beetles.
