Green pyramids. Feels like Cydonia. Of course, Cydonia didn't have these. Jack killed it but BloodEagle softened it up.
The_Force took a shot, but missed. Jack killed this Sectoid.
And...ah frak it's the brains with the tentacles again. A number of MC attacks landed but nothing stuck, this time. LordMelvin retaliates for the efforts to **** with people's heads.
Incoming fire has the right of way. Tasoths missed the tank and LordMelvin. BlueFlames and MP-Ryan get shown up by still fairly junior The E after they both miss the Tasoth that shot at LordMelvin. On the other front, The_Force gets a kill after BloodEagle spots a Sectoid and a Tasoth standing next to each other. The Tasoth succumbs to the vengeance of Spoon. Nobody shoots at a Tiger Shark and lives.
BloodEagle spotted and killed another Sectoid. We're not getting as much resistance as I expected, though half the damn team just panicked. The rookies actually seem to be handling the MC-spam better than most of the vets, excepting Jack and MP-Ryan. Speaking of which...
Spam that. Courtesy of MP-Ryan.
One of the Tasoth is hiding in there, so LordMelvin threw a grenade into the entrance. The Tasoth is now presumably injured. We know he's flipping out, considering you can hear him screaming, and we've spotted him moving about.
And Spoon hunted down a lone Sectoid and killed it.
The team seems to have pulled themselves together now. We've killed eleven aliens, most of them are probably dead. The injured Tasoth is still panicking, and Spoon found another one.
A couple of shots took care of the problem.
BlueFlames drops the injured Tasoth so it will stop screaming conspiracy theory crap in languages we don't understand. A Sectoid was lurking right next to the deployment area but didn't have a gun so he couldn't do anything.
The E puts him out of his misery.
This guy never panicked, why the crap did he drop his gun? Oh well, easy kill.
One last alien, which Spoon finds and destroys.
This...isn't like Cydonia at all. It honestly looks pretty, well, human.
MP-Ryan killed this one as it came down a lift.
And another for MP-Ryan.
Sectoids and Tasoth, same as the surface. Probably some more of the tentacle monsters, too. MP-Ryan is hogging all the kills, as he gets another Tasoth. So far only deathfun has gotten a kill of anything else.
Really, though, it looks really human.
Oh yeah, floating brain dudes. Spoon, do your thing. Also, the walls in this room are some kind of light-devouring void. What the hell?
(Having an SWS to soak up the tenteculats is kind of nice; I don't usually have a Displacer when this mission happens.)
And...what the crap, where'd he come from?! He's got a stun weapon, so rather than risk reaction fire BlueFlames and deathfun prod it with stun rods until it drops.
The ability to zombify people is insignificant next to the power of
a Spoonzer VI.
More Sectoids. This is only the second we've seen on this level, but they weren't thick on the ground up top either.
This guy had the drop on BlueFlames...admittedly only with a stun weapon, but he did. Instead, he flipped out, dropped his gun, and ran towards him. Then away again. Then towards, running in little circles until he ran out of TU.
BlueFlames celebrates his good fortune by...missing an aimed shot. Dammit!
What the christ is THAT?
Whatever it is it just ate a Sonic Cannon shot and didn't act too bothered.
Jack, demonstrating considerably more courage than sanity, went in with a stun rod and prodded the giant jellyfish until it stopped moving.
BlueFlames managed to miss three consecutive aimed shots at the panicking Tasoth, so deathfun had to kill it.
(check out the cool green shot trail; you get those underwater, but not land)
BloodEagle, determined to be even more ballsy and yet dumber than Jack, takes on a tentaclebrain with his stun rod. He won, too.
But then he has to have the tank save him from another one.
And that's it. We've killed them all. We win.
Mother of god, do we win. That's as much as half of our score for last month! (The extra corpses again; this time I didn't carry any. I have no idea what happened.)
We made 6.1mil off selling misc. junk, excess weapons and Aqua Plastics, and alien corpses. On this mission alone.
