Chapter 82: The Tragic Siege
Taking a giant leap, Han jumped into the abyss that was A-19 relic’s entrance.
“Super Sense pills, three!”
“Hyper-nuclear energy pills, three!”
“Super-ghost pills, five!” While Han was in the air, he gave orders to the fully automatic drug kit.
The kit opened and the drugs Han needed were ejected directly into his mouth, directly getting absorbed by his zero-degree region, nervous system, and his muscles.
Supposedly if someone was beside Han, they would be scared to death after hearing how many illegal drugs Han took all at once. Of the tens of thousands types of illegal drugs, the ones preceded by the word “super” or “hyper” were usually extremely enhanced drugs.
In simple terms, just one pill of an extremely enhanced drug could make most soldiers go crazy, as well as being very likely to leave behind after-effects. Other than the times people needed to fight for their lives, no one would willingly take these types of drugs.
But Han’s body was very special. The addition of the Heart of Darkness made Han immune to toxins, and thus, he could take many pills of terrifying drugs all at once.
Super sense was the triple enhanced version of the normal type, used to enhance the senses of soldiers. After taking it, soldiers will become extremely sensitive to the surrounding environment to the point where one could even sense the air turbulence of an ant moving.
Hyper-nuclear energy was the enhanced version of the source energy strengthening drug, and after taking it, the Power Source index will drastically increase. As a by-product, it also increases the attack power of soldiers.
As for the super-ghost pill, it was a type of speed and agility strengthening drug, which is pretty self-explanatory.
Han still remembered clearly the words of that strange old man Pathless, “First, get a hold of yourself firmly on the ground, then observe the surrounding and act accordingly. Don’t believe the bullshit that the Milky Way Alliance told you, those misguided idiots will be the death of you! Once you get into the extinction domain, run immediately! Run like your life depends on it, because it does depend on it! Where does not matter, as long as you just run out of the crowd!”
That’s why Han took a particularly large amount of super ghosts, 5 full pills, capable of at least tripling or quadrupling Han’s movement and agility. It was all in order to run faster.
With his right hand behind his specially modified backpack, he would be able to press a button that caused the things inside the backpack to drop downward into Han’s hands, allowing for easy access.
The surrounding became darker and darker. Han could already hear people around him breathing heavily but can’t see their figures.
Gently touching his right eye, Eye of Darkness, activate!
When Han opened his right eye again, it had completely turned black!
The strength that came with the Heart of Darkness was great. When concentrated into his arm, Han could use Dark fist! When concentrated on his eye, it allowed him to acquire unparalleled sight in the dark.
Under the Eye of Darkness, all the soldiers beside Han became like diagrams. Red lines represented blood vessels, white lines were the source energy flow paths, and the brightest region inside the brain was their zero-degree brain region.
Without question, the Eye of Darkness was an excellent ability and under its vision, whoever had a higher level, their zero-degree brain region would appear brighter. Their body also emitting stronger light than others.
Maybe he was approaching the bottom but Han felt a strange power slowing down his drop speed. It was as if the surrounding air became a lot denser.
Han never experienced close contact with an extinction domain yet, not to mention the high level A-class ones, so he looked down curiously. That curious look he took almost made all the pores in his body explode!
He only saw that at the bottom of the abyss, a crazy massacre was in progress. In the darkness, the pairs of evil eyes should be the dark beasts. Their number could not be counted, like the ocean, and the soldiers that landed on the ground were just like landing into the ocean, instantly drowned by the dark beasts’ herd.
Screams echoed in his ears, and all the soldiers still falling with Han felt scared. Only a few of them carried night-vision equipment or had special vision, and only they knew what was truly going on down there. The majority of the soldiers didn’t know at all that they were actually getting infinitely close to hell!
Although the strange power was slowing down Han’s fall, but his speed was still very fast. From noticing something wrong to landing on the ground, it was just around 2 seconds.
Han noticed that it felt a bit sticky under his foot, and then he realized that he stepped on the fresh blood of the already dead soldiers. The A-19 relic, since the moment it got activated, has been carrying out giant massacres! And there was no signs of the end, just more tragedies!
A few dark beasts nearby that were waiting for prey immediately charged at Han. Han didn’t make a sound and started running immediately! Aiming for the head of the dark beast right in front of him, he gathered dark energy and threw out his fist!
Dark descent, punch!
Han’s punch landed right on the fangs of that beast, directly tearing apart its mouth followed by its entire body!
Han did not dare to slow down, and ran like crazy towards the front, using his dark fist whenever he met a dark beast, not considering saving his energy at all!
At the same time, several screams came from behind Han. They belonged to the soldiers that landed at the same time as him. They were besieged and their lives were at stake.
In comparison, there was a big difference between Han and them, and that was how Han had already prepared.
Because of the 1 billion GC bounty on his head, Han knew very clear, the moment he entered the relic he would be attacked by everyone, whether they were humans or beasts. That was why Han took the drugs in the air, prepared a few tricks to escape and also used his darkness vision and carefully observed the surroundings.
So the moment Han landed he started to run nonstop, run desperately and disregarding everything else!
But the majority of the soldiers did not expect the extinction domain exploration even to begin with such tragic start, so they died right away!
Pathless once said, once inside the relic, it is necessary to fight with 100% of the effort!
Unfortunately, that old monster Pathless didn’t know how cruel the exploration event this time is!
Within minutes, there were already more than 10 thousand soldiers killed!
One must know, these were carefully selected elite espers of the entire Milky Way galaxy! Elites! Elites out of the elites! Such a death rate was too outrageous!
Fight to kill! Hit every punch! Trade an eye with an eye! Only surrender in death!
Capable of destroying 9 Layers of Hell! Easily able to annihilate the 6 paths of reincarnation!
The forbidden art of the Six Paths of the Void was thoroughly displayed by Han!
The Six Paths of Void was also known as the demon strike, which meant that when used, it was like a mad frontal onslaught by the hands of a demon!
And coincidently, the situation Han was in right now was where if he doesn’t become a mad demon, then he won’t be able to live!
Too many, the number of dark beasts were way too many! Overwhelmed, Han has no way to run, no way to retreat, and the only chance was to blaze a new trail of blood!
Han fully activated his power of darkness.
Not just Han’s right eye and fist, under the desperate muster of strength, Han’s entire right arm had turned pitch black!
Every time, dark fist strike consumed a significant amount of Han’s energy, but he had no choice, and he must desperately continue to use it!
The surprising number of dark beasts was like a dark tide, Han didn’t even have time to see what they actually look like, but wherever Han went, there were all open mouths rushing to bite him!
The Dark fist again displayed its power, dealing a crushing blow to two dark beasts in front of Han in one punch!
Han felt like he went head first into a deep cluster of thorny vines blocking off all paths, and no matter which direction he took, Han needed to desperately wave his axe and cleave a bloody way out.
What was more troublesome was that although Han’s Dark fist had terrifying strength that was capable of destroying the dark beasts in his path, these monsters weren’t afraid of death at all, and every second there would be more beasts leaping towards Han.
Han’s physical energy was depleting at an unimaginable rate and he knew that it was not a way out to just kill the beasts, because he could kill 100 dark beasts, 1000 dark beasts, but he could never kill the ferocious enemies whose units were measured in millions!
Eye of Darkness!
During the fight, Han looked around.
He just saw a palace inside the darkness, an area of dozens of square kilometers, surrounded by a lot of forks in the road that lead to unknown destinations.
On Han’s right hand side, there was a group of powerful soldiers, they slaughtered a bloody way out, and a lot of soldiers were following them and cooperating. Although suffering heavy casualties, they seem to have gradually withstood the dark beasts’ attacks.
In addition, there were also a few espers with special powers that have also found a way to diffuse the danger. For instance, some could become invisible, some could fly or teleport, and some could cover up their scent. They were all dispersed and trying to escape.
According to the current situation, it seemed like Han should go follow that group of strong espers. After all, they had the obvious advantage of being in a group. Among them, there were dozens of pinnacle five-star espers, and even six star espers, significantly amplifying their offense and defense as a group, forming an effect of one plus one is larger than two. (TL: basically, the author is saying that their strength together is larger than if you would just add their individual powers together, because the result is amplified due to group cooperation and synergy).
“No, that’s not the direction I want to go.” Han thought to himself.
In the extinction domains, humans were the worst enemy, and Han will always keep that in mind.
He didn’t choose to follow others but opted for a more difficult plan: rely on his own strength and follow his own path!
In the relic, only people that were always careful and paranoid will survive, and the paranoid Han chose to be on his own, would it be the right choice?
Han didn’t know, but he had no time to think!
Using his last bit of strength, Han used his Dark Fist over and over!
The automatic drug kit ejected pills after pills of forbidden drugs. Han pressed all the buttons under his backpack and started using all the tricks he had, whatever magic ball, Falcon vine, snake’s poisonous kiss, he just threw them all towards his back!
This time, he’s going to give it his all!
