Vol 15 Chapter 6-1

Team China was strong.

Zheng firmly believed in this. The team’s strength wasn’t merely their cooperation, nor their believes or anything. They had really become strong and that was the fact.

Perhaps this team China was nothing more than a bunch of bugs in the eyes of the saints who created God’s realm, but as they struggled between the line of life and death, as their enhancements increased, their strength had surpassed the concept of powerful in the real world.

Zero’s sniping skills when working with the Eyes of Death Perception and the power of the Gauss sniper rifle could take on even Zheng with the dragonshard in long range. The magic to the Eyes was their ability to locate fatal points. Despite the fact it only had a duration of half a second, Zero could shatter barriers if he could hit a fatal point in that short time.

Zheng realized the problem when he faced the super defense from team South America and the exoskeleton of the bodyguard bugs in the last movie. He remembered a theory Xuan once said that as swords became sharper, shields would become tougher. That was why he wished to obtain a sword technique. Unfortunately, his wallet wasn’t fat enough to exchange the one he wanted. He would have to wait and see if he was lucky enough to get the AA technique in the future.

Zero’s skills were outstanding. There didn’t seem to be anything in this world that could withstand a shot from the Gauss sniper rifle. Even the OverTechnology armor of the Valkyrie wouldn’t be able to take a hit if Zero were to use the Eyes of Death Perception. The end result would be an explosion if he hit a fatal point.

Of course, his excellence was limited to sniping. He couldn’t take on dozens of armed helicopters. Even if he were to shoot down half the helicopters, the enemies just needed a single shot to hit and he would be dead. Taking on a large number of high tech weapons was the task of Gando. The Valkyrie’s effectiveness was maximized at fighting high tech armed vehicles.

WangXia’s detonation and his future enhancement might become a powerful AOE user that could control bio bombs.

Kampa had fire support and the possible tactical nukes they might get.

Yinkong had assassination and close combat.

Heng had his arrow techniques for long range.

ChengXiao had his medical skills and Gu.

Lan had psyche force abilities and mind control.

Team China was strong. Even though they might still be lacking in some ways compared to team Devil and team Celestial, this gap would close in as they grew. They would surpass these two teams at the end!

“That was what I had been thinking about.” Zheng muttered in his mind. “I approximately get the reasons Xuan wanted to come to this world for the prototype T virus in such a hurry. I at least get the gist of it after simulating HongLu. One of the reasons is to improve individual member’s strength. I think you know that the prototype T virus unlocks the first stage of the unlocked mode. Kampa and WangXia still haven’t unlocked the genetic restraint yet. Though this isn’t actually a pressing matter. Zheng’s true intention is rather nefarious.”

Zheng smiled bitterly. “Killing an unlocked member in team battles has a big difference compared to killing a normal member. The difference is almost heaven and earth. He made two mistakes in the last movie during the end. One, he didn’t consider team South America would communicate through Soul Link and hid the fact they had the revival crosses. As a result, everyone in our team lost 4000 points. Two, we didn’t get their storage item and that meant we indirectly lost a lot of points and rewards. That was why he said points and rewards aren’t too useful. I was actually quite happy when I heard it. It means he had begun to understand human nature. He isn’t thinking like a complete machine anymore. So he wished to make up for the team’s lost and the best method he came up with was to make every person we kill in future team battles unlocked members.”

Lan was shocked and replied. “How is that possible? Not even team Devil had a full team of unlocked members when we fought them. Are you saying?”

Zheng confirmed her. “Correct. That’s what I meant. He saw that the next movie is a team battle so he wanted to obtain the prototype T virus first. That would increase our team member’s survivability but the real intention is to inject enemy team members with the virus. So that every person we kill will be an unlocked member. The amount of points and rewards we can get will be unimaginable.”

Lan shivered. Xuan’s mind was frightening when they came to understand it. Every action he took had an underlying reason deep down. He even included people he hadn’t seen in his calculations and furthermore, his calculations were nefarious.

“Ok. Don’t over think it. No matter what his plans are, I believe that he has become a real member of the team after so much we have been through. Team China wouldn’t be the same without him. If I am the heart of the team, he’s the brain, and everyone else are the bones and flesh. As long as we stay united, and only if we stay united, will we be able to defeat team Devil. Because we possess what they don’t have.”

Zheng walked along with a crowd to a building in the center of the city. This was the headquarter of the Umbrella Corporation, a silver and tall building. The silver glass formed the shape of the umbrella logo. It was announcing that this was their headquarter.

Zheng casually walked into the building. Lan’s psyche scan showed him the distribution of the security guards and cameras in the building and also the special locations inside.

“No biological weapons like zombies and lickers. The securities in the first thirty floors are normal. But the number of security guards increased above that. There are no elevators to floor between thirty-nine and forty. That in between floor is a bullet proof glass corridor. There are heavy firearms at both ends of the hall. Forty and above are various weapon laboratories. There are also human size robots.”

Zheng headed toward the elevator as he looked over the map in his mind and listened to Lan. “Send these images to Xuan and connect our minds.”

Lan complied. Ten seconds later, Zheng entered the elevator and pressed 29.

Xuan’s voice also came through. “I have seen the scan. What are you thinking?”

Zheng replied. “You can see that the building is heavily guarded at floor thirty and beyond. The security cameras are going to capture me if I go in without an identity. I might even get into conflict with the guards. Can I intercept the passwords you wanted in the lower floors?”

Xuan thought for a moment then said. “Probably not. You have to know that I need the passwords to their internal network. I used the device to capture a section of their firewall when I invaded them. You can start below floor thirty. If the interception is successful, the lights will turn green. If it fails, they will turn yellow. If you are discovered, they will turn red. I suggest you try a floor below thirty, then between thirty and thirty-nine, and if that fails, go above floor forty.”

Zheng said. “Floor forty? Please. You see the scan? Do you think I can get through that transparent corridor without triggering the guards? I can if I force my way through.”

“There’s a way.” Xuan replied with certainty.

  1. Zheng is falling into that trap again. Every time he says his team is strong something happens. I don’t get this thing where they go on and on about how powerful they are, but they only barely survive dangers. They are talking about this mission as if it will be to just steal it from there and fight a few helicopters. If this is a BB or A tier mission like Xuan once said it was it can’t be simple at all.

    Why does Lan think not ever member of Team Devil is unlocked? All the fighters were unlocked, the sniper was unlocked, the male Psyche Force User said that the girl one had the same level as Lan but less than him, so they should be both unlocked. Just who wasn’t? The guy with the odd name?

    Zheng thinks too highly of Zero. Zheng could avoid his snipes long as he knows he’s being targeted and uses Explosion. Also, the barrier shouldn’t be visible to Zero till they are activated, so he shouldn’t be able to kill any one with a barrier at first. The strength of a barrier should make it harder for him to find the weak point as well.

    I’m doubtful about the plan to turn others into Unlocked members. Like, the Dragon Blood that only increases 4 stats by 100 causes a cancer. From what we’ve heard this virus is safe, but there could be side effects if the person has enhancements because of two conflicting mutations. It might only have value on humans who have not received enhancements from God, so it can only be used on Newbies. It could also take a long time to take effect. Maybe days or weeks since this isn’t a enhancement from God. Maybe more than one dose is needed. Not all mission last that long. Also, God shouldn’t allow them to farm points. Even if this was a S tier Bonus Mission the ability to tun ally and enemy team members into Unlocked members, the value is way too high. I’ll only accept it is each dose cost 10,000 Points to make. Anything else breaks the balance.

    1. Both Xuan and Zheng have a bizarre view on how the other teams are. Any teams led by someone with 3rd Stage unlocked more than likely have almost all members unlocked as well as 2/3 members with 2nd stage unlocked, as getting to 3rd Stage usually means getting into constant extreme danger and thus having a team where everyone gets rewards, and so they wouldn’t be “one good everyone else sucks” team, especially as most of them didn’t get the whole Jie thing.

    2. I guess the virus is to be used against other teams other than team Devil (since people in this team have been cloned from other teams and it’s highly likely they’ve already unlocked the 1st constraint)…and maybe team Celestial

    3. Devil Team vs Calestial Team isn’t known for team china, how the hell they know what “strong” means?
      they only know 1/3 Full power of team devil, and that power almost too high for them at that time and become dumbfounded.

      Zheng Pov : Devil team full power 1000 our full power only 300, they only use 500 power to wipe our as*

      Devil zheng pov : Devil Team full power 10,000 coz calestial team we nearly wipe out and become 3000. team china 300, use 500 power, use the “Newbie”

  2. Zheng is so overconfident, his clone had already unlocked the 4th stage when they fought, that time he probably didn’t even use a quarter of his power to wipe the floor with Zheng. Due to the the fact that he has explosion and destruction he thinks that he’ll be a match for his clone, not a chance in hell. The last time Zheng fought the semi powerful opponents in team South America he struggled to kill them even while in explosion and I don’t think these people had even unlocked the 2nd stage. Team Devil was already as powerful as they were when they met team China, who knows how far they have grown now? They already had powerful equipment likely exceeding that of team South America in addition, they have a Xuan clone!

    1. Agree, but Clone Zheng didn’t even go into the First Stage to deal with Zheng 3ven fighting alongside ONE, so it’s probably closer to at most 5% of his full power. Team South America’s leader had gotten to the Second Stage. The author made the other guy First Stage for the heck of it despite not having the skills of a first stage user. Still, I wouldn’t make fun of a team that only has first stagers except for leader because that’s Team China too. About Team Devil’s equipment I don’t think so. Judging by how the last battle went I suspect that they prioritize enhancements over gear. A few might have self created powers though the next they meet.

    2. Zheng’s opinion that they are “truly strong” is nothing short of irking. It wasn’t long ago that they were completely wiped out, and Zheng had to face a reality in which they are insufferably weak, and have to work hard to better themselves. He trained day and night, and at the end of Jurassic Park, he pretty much stopped, and returned to his lolly-gagging, carefree ways.
      One step ahead, one step backwards. Nothing in particular was gained, other than Zheng’s special techniques. The story feels like it just returned to the same status-quo. It’s strange how the author rolled back the mentality he was going for like that.

      And just an addendum to my rant, it’s remarkable how Zheng thinks he needs a sword-technique, when the narrative made it obvious that his sword is pretty much useless. When he fought against the bugs, Xuan told him it’d make a lot more sense for Zheng to just use his hands to kill them, but what was Zheng’s argument against that claim? “No, I already have a sword, so I am forced to use it, even if it’s useless.”
      And then we’re told he also needs to invest double A ranked rewards to actually make use of his sword? wat? Why not just further his own bloodline enhancements, and just dump the sword (or actually just practice his sword techniques)?

      Regardless of everyone else’s progress, Zheng’s path to power seems to be needlessly complicated. It’s also not clear why he seems to prefer sword-techniques over enhancing his control over his Blood energy. Weapons come after you can control your mojo, not before.
