God and Devil World - Chapter 381-390
Chapter 381: Appearance of the Entire Marine Biology!
All sorts of Mutant Sea Lions, Seals, Sea Centipedes, Sea Lice, Sandworms and various other Mutant Beasts with the 8 colossal Type 4 in the centre made their way towards shore.
“That’s terrifying!” Yue Zhong looked at them and his heart shook. Mutant Beasts possessed crazy armor, and their life force was strong. A Type 2 Mutant Beast was more than enough to decimate a company of soldiers that lacked heavy weapons.
By now, the Type 2 Mutant Beasts were barely above the rest of the ordinary Mutant Beasts, as they marched on in their swarms. There were over thousands of them. This was a number that was more than enough to annihilate an army of more than 100,000.
Greenie flapped its wings and caused a great gust of wind to rise, as it landed gracefully on the building Bai Xiao Sheng and the rest were on. At this time, the building was being surrounded by the Mutant Beasts.
Yue Zhong immediately leaped towards Bai Xiao Sheng and the rest.
Currently, the entire place looked right out of hell, there were the dismembered corpses of Mutant Beasts lying everywhere as Bai Xiao Sheng and his team fought off the Mutant Beasts with all their might.
Yue Zhong had just arrived by their side when 8 Mutant Beasts with bass heads, bodies full of scales, with fins, gills and claws opened their jaws and fired numerous bubbles. This pressurized bubbles blasted towards 2 Evolvers, sending them flying against a wall. The 2 unfortunate Evolvers spat out a mouthful of blood and it was evident that they had suffered grievous injuries.
Yue Zhong shot through his troops and waved his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade 8 times quickly, chopping those 8 beasts into 2.
“Boss, you’ve finally made it!”
Bai Xiao Sheng grinned at Yue Zhong and shot out from beside Miya Aiko, waving his Dark Magic Blade as he weaved in about the swarm of Mutant Beasts, slicing numerous beasts in 2.
Yue Zhong eyed the surroundings and noted that Fukui Honten, Kazuki Nobuhiko and the Miya sisters had not yet died. The rest of the fishing folk and survivors had lost about 7 or 8 of their people.
Had Yue Zhong been slightly later, other than Bai Xiao Sheng, the rest would likely have perished.
Yue Zhong ordered deeply: “Retreat to the roof!”
“Yes!” 6 Evolvers replied and swiftly brought their injured comrades in the direction of the roof.
All of a sudden, there was the sound of glass breaking. A huge snakehead broke through a window, and opened its jaws to snap at Yue Zhong.
“Level 65 Strange Beast: Type 2 Mutant Sea Snake. Ferocious and violent creature.”
Yue Zhong’s gaze turned cold and he activated his Devil Flame, causing a fireball to shoot towards the mouth of the Type 2 Mutant Sea Snake.
With a huge explosion, the head of the Mutant Sea Snake was instantly blasted into pieces. Bits and pieces of brain and flesh rained from the skies, at the same time a skill book burst out.
Yue Zhong picked up the dropped skill book and quickly shot back. Although the entire body of the Type 2 Mutant Sea Snake was a treasure, he could not spare the time to slowly take it apart.
Kuang lang, kuang lang.
Following the sounds of glass breaking, a number of strange beasts with the heads,scales and fins of fish but standing upright on their legs that had evolved, climbed in from the windows.
“Level 23 Strange Beasts: Low-intelligence warriors of the sea. Possess a constitution 5 times that of normal humans. Their natures are bloodthirsty and violent.”
Yue Zhong looked at the sea warriors and a look of shock flashed past his eyes: “Marine Clan!! Marine Clan lifeforms. Shit, even the Mutant Beasts have evolved to an intelligent stage? If they continued like this, will humans even have a chance?!”
Since the world changed, there were zombies and Mutant Beasts everywhere, and humanity was slowly forced to seek refuge in various corners. They could hold their own mainly because of the treasuries and legacies left behind before the apocalypse, at the same time, the zombies and Mutant Beasts were driven by their bestial instincts, rather than intelligence.
The moment zombies and Mutant Beasts developed intelligence, then with their advantage in numbers and constitution, humanity would most likely lose out.
Especially for those of the sea, earth had twice as much water as land. Furthermore, there were over 100 more times the diversity of life. Should the terrifying Type 5 Overlords of the sea get on land, only nuclear and guided missiles might have the possibility of destroying them. Beyond those, all tanks and armored vehicles were likely to be toyed around with.
A fierce glint appeared in the beady eyes of those sea warriors as they pounced towards Yue Zhong.
“Trash! Fucking beasts, you won’t stand a chance!” Yue Zhong shot towards them and with a single blade beam, he took out 6 sea warriors instantly.
Having disposed of them, Yue Zhong retreated back towards the roof.
Kuang lang, kuang lang. The sounds of glass shattering travelled throughout the building.
One sea warrior managed to charge towards a fisherman, and its claws pierce his back, before it ripped him violently. A huge chunk of flesh was torn from the fisherman’s back and fresh blood splattered.
“Ah!! Save me!! Save me!!” The Japanese fisherman screamed out in agony. He had just shouted twice when another sea warrior had jumped in front of him and chomped down on his throat.
3 others surrounded the poor fisherman and used their sharp claws to rip his body apart.
Seeing this bloody scene, the rest of the fishing folk felt their hearts turn cold and they quickly rushed towards the roof.
Yue Zhong swiftly rushed back with Bai Xiao Sheng as they cleared the various sea warriors from the back.
With the protection of the 2 experts, the rest managed to climb onto Greenie’s back.
Greenie flapped its mighty wings and soared to the skies amidst roaring winds.
In the sky, Yue Zhong looked down and saw the Mutant Sea Warriors swarming all over the building like ants. Compared to those numbers, the ones that they had just killed seemed like a single hair of 9 oxens.
While these Mutant Sea Warriors did not possess similar combat strength compared to the Mutant Beasts, their numbers were simply uncountable. From the skies, it just seemed like the entire place had been overrun by those Sea Warriors.
They were strange in appearance, some had swordfish heads, others had octopus heads. Their bodies were scales, some had shark heads and their bodies were all burly.
The numerous sea warriors and the ferocious Mutant Beasts did not get in each other way, nor did they engage in any conflict. This caused Yue Zhong’s heart to sink.
He patted Greenie lightly, and it began to fly towards the mothership.
Since the defences of the base had been resolved, Yue Zhong planned to obtain the mothership and leave the place quickly. The zombies and Mutant Beasts horde wasn’t something their small party could handle at this point, after all, their numbers were really too huge.
Greenie landed on the mothership and the party leaped down from its back.
On the deck, the wandering zombies began to shuffle towards Yue Zhong and his party.
Seeing the state of the bodies of those American troops, the Miya sisters as well as Alice felt fearful and backed a few steps towards Yue Zhong.
In this world, there were people who constantly fought on the frontlines against zombies, while others hid behind for safety. The Miya sisters had survived like that for so long, and hence, their price was like that of goods, traded around as gifts.
Yue Zhong eyed the incoming zombies and ordered Tenpyo Saka: “Eliminate them!”
She was after all a Demon-level existence within Takama-ga-hara, her battle strength high. In a flash, she shot towards the zombies and decapitated all of them.
In 20 seconds, all the zombies had been wiped out by her.
After dealing with that minor disturbance, Yue Zhong and his party continued further into the mothership.
Yue Zhong turned on his flashlight and under the guidance of Graham, they began to walk towards the control room.
Along the way, many zombies would appear and try to attack them, however, before they got too close, Yue Zhong had taken them out easily. They managed to proceed smoothly into the control room of the mothership.
The 8 Evolvers that had followed Yue Zhong immediately stepped forwards to get accustomed to the controls. They had the Vehicle Operational Specialization and with that, even without any prior experience in controlling, they soon caused the mothership to move.
One of them came up to Yue Zhong and spoke excitedly: “Leader, we have already gained control of the mothership, we’re awaiting your next orders.”
Mothership!! It was something that many Chinese longed for. It was the pinnacle of power on the seas, without it, a country was of no threat.
Since the beginning of the apocalypse, China only owned one, and the one they had could not compare to the current U.S Navy’s.
Yue Zhong frowned slightly, looking at the distance, before saying: “Go, bring the mothership towards Shizuoka Prefecture.”
Chapter 382: Escape the Base!
The Evolver immediately replied: “Roger! Leader!”
The 8 Evolvers immediately got into action, and they begun to operate the controls as though they had been part of the crew for years. Under their deft control, the ship began to light up, and following the sounds of whirring, the huge carrier left its port and started to move.
Yue Zhong looked at Tenpyo Saka: “Tenpyo Saka, I’ll leave the zombies on the ship to you.”
She was after all an assassin that walked in the dark, and with the Night Vision ability as well, she was more than enough to handle the zombies within the mothership.
She glanced at Yue Zhong before turning around to go hunt down the zombies.
A single aircraft carrier mothership was the product of human ingenuity prior to the apocalypse, and its size was even larger than most Type 4 Mutant Beasts. Its movements caused waves to ripple out.
Many of the sea warriors and Mutant Beasts were attracted by the movement and begun to swim over.
The powerful defense systems of the mothership were activated and began firing at the surrounding Mutant Beasts and sea warriors. The resulting blasts tore the enemies apart. Blood dyed the sea red, and the corpses of numerous Mutant Beasts and sea warriors floated on the water.
Yue Zhong stood on the deck and brought out a single 12.7mm heavy machine gun, and begun to fire it at the sea warriors that survived.
On the other side, Sharkie drew close, and opened its jaws to suck in all the sea warriors. Its sharp jaws then closed tight, tearing the sea warriors into bits and their blood splattered everywhere. The speed at which Sharkie was slaughtering the sea warriors was even faster than Yue Zhong.
All of a sudden, a large tentacle rose up from the sea, and made to grab at Yue Zhong.
His face fell slightly as he dodged to the side, pulling out his Black Tooth Blade as he slashed out. The tentacle was sliced in two, and the owner retracted the remainder of its tentacle in pain.
As the water churned, a huge Type 3 Mutant Octopus of over a 100m in length appeared, and it stretched out all its tentacles to grab at Sharkie.
A monstrous Type 3 Sea Snake swam over hurriedly, accompanied by a Type 3 Mutant Swordfish with a sharp spike of 10m as they prepared to attack Sharkie.
The spike of the Type 3 Mutant Swordfish was really sharp, if Sharkie was really pierced by it, even if it escaped death, it would be at the very least heavily injured.
From the skies, Greenie shot down and grabbed at the Type 3 Mutant Sea Snake, and brought it out of the water.
The Green Eagles were natural fishing birds, and they perfectly countered snakes as well. Their speed was fast, and in a single swoop, Greenie easily pierced the body of the similar-level Mutant Sea Snake.
With a single move, Greenie had disposed of one enemy. The Type 3 Mutant Swordfish rammed into Sharkie, its sharp spike piercing the defensive layer of Sharkie, injuring it greatly.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with a chill as he immediately conjured a Devil Flame Spear expending 20 points of Spirit, and fired it at the Type 3 Mutant Swordfish.
The Devil Flame entered the water and caused steam to billow upwards, however, by the time it reached the body of the Mutant Swordfish, it had lost much of its power, not injuring it in the slightest.
The Devil Flame was terrifying on land, even able to cook an L4 that a rocket could not possibly damage. However, the moment it met water, it was basically useless.
In truth, most abilities were less effective in the water. Only body constitutions would not be affected.
The Type 4 Mutant Swordfish shot Yue Zhong a cold glare, and twisted its body, causing the sharp spike to gouge a huge wound out of Sharkie, fresh blood dying the sea red.
Sharkie bore its pain and reached out with one of its evolved claws to tear the tentacles restricting it, before it turned around to chomp down on the body of the Type 3 Mutant Swordfish. Its violent attack also caused the Type 3 Mutant Swordfish to suffer greatly.
The mothership continued to traverse forward, as the Mutant Beasts and sea warriors continued to pursue. The moment they caught up, the swarm would become a huge nightmare for Yue Zhong and his party.
Sharkie and the Type 3 Mutant Swordfish continued to engage each other, tearing and ripping into each other.
Right at this time, Greenie suddenly swooped down again, and pecked once violently at the head of the Mutant Swordfish, causing a huge gaping hole. The Type 3 Mutant Swordfish was killed instantly.
Sharkie swam forwards and bit down on the head of the dead Type 3 Mutant Swordfish ferociously, gobbling up the brain together with the nuclei.
After Sharkie absorbed the nuclei and brain into its body, it quickly swam for the depths of the sea. Many Type 2 Mutant Beasts swam over, attracted by the scent of fresh blood.
The flesh and blood as well as the nuclei of Type 3 Mutant Beasts were enticing to most ordinary and Type 2 Mutant Beasts. Since Sharkie was heavily injured, many of these beasts were naturally unwilling to let go of such a big piece of meat.
With Sharkie leaving, it naturally helped divert the attention of a huge number of the Mutant Beasts, decreasing the pressure on the human party.
Yue Zhong raised his 12.7mm machine gun and continued to fire it at the heads of the sea warriors. His body continued to flash about on the deck of the mothership, causing any member of the sea warriors that got too close to be killed immediately.
After 20 minutes, the sea warriors were left behind by the speed of the mothership.
The sea warriors were 5 times stronger than most ordinary humans. In a short span of time, it was possible for them to burst with speed exceeding that of the mothership. However, it was a short acceleration. Over time, it was impossible for them to maintain that speed. After all, they were biological lifeforms, and not machines.
After being on the sea for 30 minutes, there was a strange movement amongst the pursuing beasts. The Type 3 and Type 2 Mutant Beasts begun to attack the weaker Mutant Beasts, killing many of them.
Numerous weaker life forms were consumed by the larger ones, while others escaped, and in a short span of time, the entire Mutant Beast army seemed to fall apart.
“We’re safe for now!” Yue Zhong saw the sudden collapse of the Mutant Beast army and he heaved a sigh of relief.
In the seas, the law of the jungle always ruled, the strong preyed on the weak, and they would often kill each other. This time, the organization of such forces was definitely due to some beast possessing the strength.
However, even absolute strength would have a limit, and in this case, it was the radius at which the control was present. It seemed that the moment those Mutant Beasts got out of range, they immediately fell apart.
Watching the fall of the Mutant Beast horde, everyone on the mothership heaved a sigh of relief.
The pressure from those Mutant Beasts and sea warriors had been too exhausting, not even the self-defence systems on the mothership could fully keep them at bay.
Furthermore, while the might of the weapons were terrifying, the expenditure of ammo was likewise as shocking. Yue Zhong had not yet obtained the resources from the base itself.
He directly asked an Evolver: “Xian Yu Ming! How many people is needed to run this mothership?”
Xian Yu Ming was one of Chinese that had followed Yue Zhong and was already a Level 44 Strength-based Evolver. He was also one of the pilots of the Thunder Fighters, possessing the Vehicle Manoeuvre Specialization ability, and he was the captain of the small elite group of the 8 Evolvers that had come on this operation.
Xian Yu Ming thought for a while before replying: “4. It will require 4 to navigate it and control the defence systems.”
This was mainly thanks to the advanced development of the US, allowing for much of the ship to be automated. Due to this, the ship just required 4 well-versed crew members.
Yue Zhong gazed at them and said: “Good! I need just 3 of you to go command it. Who amongst you are willing to follow me to go get the flagship of the 7th fleet?”
“Leader!! I’m willing!!”
“Leader! I’m willing!! Chen Yi Fei is injured, let him rest. I’ll follow you!!”
Hearing his order, the subordinates clamoured with excitement. They had already obtained the awe-inspiring mothership, if they could even obtain the 7th fleet’s flagship, then it would be an honourable matter.
Together with the mothership, the flagship was also a terrifying war-machine. With these 2, they would be near invincible in the waters of China. As long as they didn’t encounter any Type 4 or Type 5 Mutant Beasts, they were practically invincible.
Xian Yu Ming shot them a glare and barked: “Pipe down!”
The moment he opened his mouth, the rest kept quiet and looked at him in anticipation. Xian Yu Ming’s position in the army was high, and since Yue Zhong enforced military rule, the lower ranked soldiers adhered vehemently to authority.
Xian Yu Ming then issued the order: “Zhao Tian Gang, Qiao Xing, Li Shu. The 3 of you shall accompany Leader.”
Although Xian Yu Ming himself wanted very badly to go, he knows that the mothership was even more important to Yue Zhong. As the captain of this small unit, he had to stay on board to guard and command the ship.
Chapter 383: Mer-people!
The 3 of them cheered when they were selected as they went to get on Greenie’s back.
The rest of them who weren’t selected had envious expressions as they watched Greenie fly off with Yue Zhong and his team.
Greenie’s speed could exceed the sound barrier, reaching Mach 1.2 which was even quicker than the Type 3 Lightning. Zhao Tian Gang and the rest were all Evolvers, but Greenie held back, in order not to injure them. Even so, it was still fast, and they reached the skies above Yokosuka Base in a matter of minutes.
Yue Zhong looked down from his position, and saw the zombies and Mutant Beasts already engaged in an all out slaughter.
Ordinary zombies were not a match for the Mutant Beasts and sea warriors. They were torn and ripped into pieces when they clashed, and the zombies were at a disadvantage.
The 8 Type 4 behemoths were like mystical beasts right out of myths and legends, squashing large number of zombies in their path. With every casual step, they would stomp at least a few dozens of zombies. It was even more gruesome than the Godzilla of Japanese film fame.
Yue Zhong looked at the 8 monstrous Type 4 Mutant Beasts and felt a headache. They had incredibly tough flesh and immense strength, coupled with gigantic bodies. This made their bodies practically impervious to even rockets.
If there were a barrage of rockets and missiles launched at the same time, then there was a possibility of blasting them to oblivion. However, even Type 2 Mutant Beasts had their own innate abilities, it would be wishful thinking to hope that the Type 4 Mutants Beasts would lack any, or not employ their abilities. If they did use their abilities, Yue Zhong guessed that not even rockets could damage them.
If there were any weak points of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, it would be that their speed wasn’t fast enough. Compared to the Flame Bird that had a speed of Mach 2, the speed of these 8 Type 4 Mutant Beasts was pathetic. Even Yue Zhong’s movement was many times faster.
After all, they belonged to the sea. On land, their speed would suffer.
As the countless Mutant Beasts and sea warriors slaughtered the zombies, a number of Evolved S-Types suddenly launched an assault.
One tank-like L4 smashed out with a powerful fist, shattering the skull of a Type 2 Mutant Beast. The might of an L4 was not to be taken lightly, as it was comparable to the peak of Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
The speed of the S4s also exceeded that of a Type 2 Lightning. They became fast shadows that weaved in and out of the battlefield, slashing the throats of the sea warriors.
In the chaos, there were still the Devourers, whose strength far surpassed the S4s, and their speed surpassing the L4s. They could easily crush a sea warrior in their jaws, dismembering the bodies with their claws.
With 6 L4s leading the charge, countless sea warriors and weaker Mutant Beasts were ripped apart. 7 to 8 huge Type 2 Mutant Beasts had their skulls utterly crushed by the L4s. As the sea warriors and Mutant Beasts were taken out, the zombie horde surged forwards again, consuming all that was on the ground.
Swallowing the meat of those sea warriors and Mutant Beasts, many ordinary zombies began to evolve, their bones strengthening, their flesh hardening. Some even evolved to possessing claws and powerful thighs and legs.
On the other side, the Mutant Beasts were also evolving, having consumed such a large number of zombies. The virus within the zombies was also something vital to their evolution. However, the majority that evolved were low-level beasts. The higher level ones needed a larger volume to evolve.
As Yue Zhong watched both sides battle it out, he thought: “No matter the outcome of this battle, the victor would gain an unshakeable position here. Seems like Japan is in trouble.”
The victor of this all-out clash would reap the corpses and flesh of the opponent. Consuming those would grant the victor more opportunities to evolve. Should there be over a thousand L4s evolved within the Kanagawa Prefecture, it was enough to sweep the entire Japan region.
Even someone as strong as Yue Zhong could only defeat a dozen or so L4s, facing a hundred at one time would force him to retreat. He would have to find other means, there was no way he could handle a frontal assault.
“Ah! What is that? Mermaid?” Yue Zhong looked down, and suddenly saw something strange.
Within the group of sea warriors, there was another group of fish-heads that were over 8m long, and their bodies full of rippling muscles, there was a group of top half-human, bottom half-fishes, the males were handsome, the females exceptionally beautiful. At their feet, or where there feet would be, there were waves flowing, making it seem as though these mermaids were riding the waves.
“Level 73 Strange Beast: Killer Whale Fighters. Powerful warriors of the Sea Clan.”
“Mermen. Biological lifeforms with high intelligence.”
“What’s going on? Could they really be similar to us humans, with intelligence?” Yue Zhong’s mood sunk further.
After the world had changed, Yue Zhong had used his Eyes of Perception to get information even on Type 5 Mutant Beasts. The only times when he could not get the levels were on ordinary beasts that did not mutate or other humans. The information on these mermaids and mermen were actually withheld from Yue Zhong’s Eyes of Perception, and he was strongly suspicious.
At the same time, a huge sense of pressure weighed down on Yue Zhong. The number of humans were decreasing since the apocalypse, after all, they had only been able to survive so far in the midst of zombies and Mutant Beasts was because of their advantage in intelligence. If a high-intelligence being evolved among the zombies or Mutant Beasts, then they would definitely pose a greater danger to humanity. Not to mention an entire race of intelligent beings.
It was unclear how the merpeople could control the masses of sea warriors on top of the Mutant Beasts. This strength caused one to be fearful.
Yue Zhong was a top-level expert that could control 3 Type 3 Mutant Beasts, but the horde that was attacking the Yokosuka Base had over hundreds of them, and 8 of those seemingly invincible Type 4 Mutant Beasts. Compared to them, Yue Zhong’s might was pitifully weak.
Yue Zhong pointed to one Type 3 Mutant Sea Snake in the battlefield and said: “Go kill that fellow.”
As Greenie flapped its wings, the wind gathered around it, before it shot towards the Type 3 Sea Snake like a sharp sword. Its sharp claws pierced the head of the Type 3 Sea Snake and grabbed it as it flew into the sky.
With the additional weight of over a few tonnes, Greenie’s speed slowed down substantially. However, it was still more than enough as by the time the low level Mutant Beasts around reacted, Greenie was gone.
Greenie dragged the huge Sea Snake before it landed on a tall building.
Yue Zhong then swiftly removed the brain, blood essence and blood, throwing the nuclei to Greenie to swallow. He then leaped back onto its back and they continued to search for opportunities to hunt other Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
The Type 3 Mutant Beasts were not easy to hunt and kill, and as Yue Zhong commanded Greenie to soar above the battlefield, they would usually look for the stranded Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes. They were Greenie’s natural prey, and was easier to handle as compared to others.
Under Yue Zhong’s lead, Greenie flew about and they managed to hunt down another 2 more Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes.
The Type 3 Mutant Beasts were still a high-ranking beast among the horde, and after Greenie had killed 3, the rest of the Type 3 Mutant Sea Snakes quickly gathered towards the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
The Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake chased Greenie, enraged, as it dragged that body of over 200m with it.
As it moved, the Mutant Beasts, zombies and even abandoned vehicles that were in its path was entirely obliterated by its humongous body. The smaller Mutant Beasts quickly got out of its way, making a path for it.
“Towards there!” Yue Zhong saw the enraged Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, and pointed to a direction of the zombie horde.
Greenie flapped its wings and flew towards the where Yue Zhong had directed.
Led by Greenie, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake slithered all the way towards the huge zombie army.
6 L4s immediately charged up to the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake when they saw it approach, and punched out viciously.
This time, the powerful fists that could destroy a Type 2 Mutant Beast’s head in a blow was ineffective, as the scales of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake retracted slightly, before it struck out with its body, and the L4s to be knocked back.
The blows of the L4s still caused the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake to feel some pain, and it stared at one L4, opening its huge jaws to swallow it.
The moment the L4 was gobbled up, dozens of S4s charged up the body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake like ants, and they used their incredibly sharp claws to tear off the scales on the Sea Snake.
Although the S4s did not have the strength of the L4s, nor the defences, they had extremely sharp claws for weapons, which could pierce even the tough scales of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
Chapter 384: Corpse Amaterasu!
The S3s and S2s were like ants that crawled all over the massive body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake. They used their claws and jaws to tear into the meat of the behemoth.
Every one of these evolved zombies could cause a little harm to the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, if the damage was accumulated over time, then even an invincible being like it would succumb to its injuries and die.
Facing the combined assault of the evolved zombies, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake opened its huge mouth to release large amounts of poisonous gas.
The huge poison cloud surrounded the zombies, which continued to climb all around the huge Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake and bite it. Many of them inhaled the gas and some changes began to happen, as they grew some lesions on their backs.
The innate ability of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake was poison, and the poison it spat out was strong enough to even poison other Type 4 Mutant Beasts to death. If Greenie were to come in contact with just a little, it will definitely die of poison and drop out of the sky. However, the poison that this Type 4 Mutant Snake released was not the dissolving type, hence it was ineffective against the zombies that were basically carrying a deadly virus on themselves as well.
When the wind blew, the poisonous gas was dissipated outwards, and with the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake in the centre, every single Mutant Beast within a 1km radius crumpled to the ground, their faces turning black.
Within that radius, one Type 3 Mutant Lobster and Type 3 Mutant Red-back Crab died instantly. Many of these Mutant Beasts had powerful resistance towards poison and viruses, but the poison from the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake was on a whole different level.
When the zombies consumed the innate ability of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, they begun to ravage the body of the behemoth with renewed vigor.
In its pain, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake thrashed about, hoping to shake the little critters off. With every twist of its massive body, the zombies would be sent flying, and at the same time, the zombies that were around were crushed beneath.
Even without its innate ability, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake possessed a terrifying strength. Its huge body contained a strength that not even Evolvers were capable of withstanding.
As the Type 4 Mutant Snake continued to swing about, most of the zombies were sent flying, only those S4s continued to grab on tightly with their claws embedded in the body of the Sea Snake.
The S4s were like ants to the gargantuan Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, and it was able to ignore the remaining S4s on its body.
Instead, it turned its attention towards a L4 and opened its huge jaws to swallow it. When it was done, it opened its jaws again to suck in, and a powerful suction caused many of the evolved zombies around to be sucked into its jaws.
As it continued to suck in the hundreds of smaller evolved zombies like a vacuum cleaner, only the L4s, L3s and Devourers were able to withstand. The rest were all sucked into its body.
When the Mutant Sea Snake was done sucking in hundreds of evolved zombies, it then closed its jaws and coiled its body, causing the zombies within its body to be crushed into bits and pieces.
Seeing that, Yue Zhong immediately felt his heart turn cold and he abandoned the idea of fighting his way out from within if he was ever caught. The moment the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake twisted its body, he would definitely be crushed to death.
A number of the S4s which were still on the body of the Mutant Sea Snake quickly climbed along its body. The moment they moved, the sensitive Mutant Sea Snake discovered them and once again, it began its violent thrashing in a bid to shake them off.
Right at this time, a white line shot out from within the zombie horde, piercing a hole directly in the body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
The Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake had not been injured too greatly by the surrounding zombies earlier, but this single blow dealt a huge blow to it.
A single young man stepped out from the horde, his hair long and flowing down his shoulders. He wore a kimono, and his looks were extremely handsome. His muscles were ripped and lean, but his eyes were entirely blood-red, and he was covered in a layer of bone armor.
“Corpse, a different evolution of the virus infection. Possesses terrifying strength and intelligence that do not lose out to humans. A being with high-intelligence.”
Yue Zhong’s Eyes of Perception kicked in when he glanced at that corpse, and the notification shocked him.
Looking at that corpse, his heart was filled with killing intent: “Damn it, there’s such a freak. I need to eliminate it, right here! This sort of life form cannot be allowed to live on this earth!”
After the world had changed, there was less than 1 in 10 humans who survived, and yet the zombies population was at least a hundred times of that. Any single large city would be occupied by at least a million zombies now. Yue Zhong had been able to obtain victory in the past was because the zombies were stupid. Even the Z-types could not compare to humans in terms of intelligence.
However, the fact that there was a evolved being that had high intelligence, this was definitely the nightmare for humanity. Even if it was just one smart high school student that could control all the zombies, he or she would be able to wipe out all the factions on earth.
As of now, the Kingdom of God was the strongest faction that Yue Zhong had come across, but he knew that if they were surrounded by a billion zombies, they would also collapse. Nuclear bombs might not necessarily annihilate a billion zombies.
The corpse was like an emperor that had control of the world, as it pointed to the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, and 4 sharp bone spikes came out from its body to pierce the body of the Type 4 Mutant Snake. The spikes that begun to drill furiously, causing 4 huge gaping holes as copious amount of the precious Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake’s blood flowed out.
The corpse then begun to suck, absorbing the blood of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake into its body.
Having been injured, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake became even more violent, as it twisted towards the corpse in a frenzy.
The blood-red eyes of the corpse flashed with scorn. The bone spikes beneath its feet sent it retreating backward speedily, its speed faster than the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake by over 2 times.
As the corpse retreated, it continued to use huge bone spikes to pierce the body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, aggravating its injuries, and continued to absorb its blood.
The Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake opened its huge mouth to spit out a large amount of poisonous gas towards the corpse, enveloping the entire area.
The corpse did not panic, instead, it shot out a huge bone towards the brain of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, intending to pierce its brain.
Peng! At this moment, as the corpse was about to seize victory, a powerful sniper bullet shot towards the heart of the corpse.
At that instant, the corpse twisted its body slightly, and the bullet blasted its left shoulder, causing the bone armor to shatter into pieces. Its figure was also sent staggering a few steps backwards due to the force of the bullet.
As the corpse was hit, another powerful spear made of flames shot past it, piercing the brain of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, exploding and burning the brains of the behemoth into ashes.
Having lost its scales that could withstand even water, fire and bullets, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake was no longer invincible and Yue Zhong took the opportunity to steal the kill.
“Congratulations on achieving Level 80, you’ve gained 2 attribute points to be allocated.”
“Congratulations on achieving Level 80, you’ve gained 1 skill point.”
After killing the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake sneakily, the notifications rang out in his mind.
At the same time, a blue box appeared beside the corpse of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
When he caught sight of the blue box, Yue Zhong’s expression almost turned green, and he activated his Bone Encompassing Armor and leaped down from the height of over 200m.
He reached out towards the ground, and shot a bone spike into the ground, before pulling himself towards the corpse quickly.
The corpse that was forced to stagger backward by Yue Zhong had a look of fury in its eyes, as it waved its hands, 4 of the bone spikes that could pierce even the defences of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake shot towards Yue Zhong.
Facing those sharp spikes, Yue Zhong did not dare dally. He activated his Shadow Steps, pushing his Agility to the limits, before he pulled out his Black Tooth Blade to hack at the incoming spikes. He then made use of the recoil to send himself towards the ground.
He immediately grabbed the blue box, depositing it into his storage ring, and instantly activated his Second Order Stealth skill, routing around the corpse of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake to hide himself.
The fact that the corpse could hunt the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, it was because it could counter the innate ability of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, from this, it was apparent how powerful this corpse was.
The corpse glanced around, laughing maniacally in Japanese: “Distorting Perception, interesting! Human, in front of you is the great Amaterasu that will rule the world! In front of a god, you are all ants. There’s only death even if you try to run!”
Chapter 385: War between Zombie Horde and Sea Clan!
The corpse that referred to itself as Amaterasu waved its hand, and a dark red blood liquid came out of its body, as it swept across the general area towards Yue Zhong.
An overwhelming sense of danger arose in Yue Zhong’s heart, and he immediately conjured a dragon with his Devil Flame and fired it at the incoming blood river.
When the Devil Flame dragon came in contact with the blood river, there was a sizzling sound as the blood was burnt upon contact, turning into a bloody fog that dispersed into the sky.
The corpse saw its own blood river being incinerated by Yue Zhong’s Devil Flame and its eyes flashed with unhappiness: “A fire user! Damn it!”
The dark blood river was a special skill that amounted from the corpse’s absorption of blood from living things. Under its control, the river could change size and shape, and the moment it congealed, it could even pierce the scales of a Type 4 Mutant Beast. It was the own blood essence of the corpse as well, the moment it was destroyed, the corpse would suffer a backlash, and become weak.
The corpse had consumed an indeterminate amount of blood from numerous people and Mutant Beasts, and the blood river was as equally as dominating as it was. However, it happened to be countered by Yue Zhong’s Devil Flame.
As the Devil Flame died down, and the smelly bloody fog had lifted, Yue Zhong had disappeared from his position.
Amaterasu looked at where Yue Zhong had disappeared from and laughed out loud: “Have you escaped? Humans are indeed crafty. The moment you think you’re no longer my opponent, you ran! What a trash! From today onwards, the earth will belong to me, Amaterasu! Hahaha!!”
The grating laughter rang out through the night sky.
Amaterasu then turned to look at the corpse of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake and walked over. “After swallowing this Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, my strength will evolve once more. By then, there will be no one who’s my match.”
To zombies and corpses, the flesh and blood of a Type 4 Mutant Beast was a potent ingredient for evolution. The flesh of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake held great allure over zombies, and Amaterasu was no different.
It was just walking towards the body of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake when all of a sudden, a lightning bolt struck down on it, causing its body to be charred black, its hair to be singed, giving off a burnt smell.
From afar, a huge Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was leading a swarm of jellyfish towards the direction of Amaterasu. Their innate ability was electricity, and they caused a number of lightning bolts to assault Amaterasu.
The Type 4 Sea Jellyfish led the attacks by casting huge and powerful lightning strikes towards Amaterasu, electrocuting it. While Amaterasu was impervious to poison, it had no way of defending against the lightning attacks fully.
Receiving that continuous onslaught of electricity, Amaterasu began to launch its own counterattack, as sharp bone spikes as well as a layer of blood congealed to form a mighty shield. The shield absorbed the incoming lightning attacks, causing part of the wall to sizzle and turn into a bloody mist.
The innate ability of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was frightening, as it continued to drift forwards while casting its ability, before it came in front of the blood shield and smacked down on it viciously. The blood shield instantly disintegrated.
The shield of blood had collapsed into nothing, but by then, the corpse Amaterasu had disappeared from behind. As a being with high-intelligence, survival was always the first priority. If it were zombies, even if the enemy was way out of their league, they would just continue to fight until they themselves were exterminated. As for the corpse, the different line of evolution had caused them to develop thinking and to possess feelings and intelligence equal to that of humans.
Amaterasu was extremely clear the it would not be easy to defeat the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish, hence, it decided to escape in another direction.
Amaterasu could defeat the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake was because it was unafraid of the Sea Snake’s innate ability. If it were other experts, they might have long been poisoned to death. It was only because the corpse had evolved from the virus strain that made it invulnerable to the poison.
However, facing the group of Sea Jellyfish that were electrical in nature, Amaterasu had no natural defence, and if things continued on, it would suffer an electrocuting end.
After chasing the corpse Amaterasu away, the Type 4 Mutant Sea Jellyfish reached out with its countless tentacles, bringing the evolved zombies around it into its mouth, and it bit through them, grinding their bodies down.
After swallowing a large number of zombies, the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish then reached out to flip the corpse of the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake, piercing its head to obtain the nucleus.
The Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was still probing the forehead of the dead Sea Snake when Yue Zhong suddenly burst out from the forehead, covered in snake blood. He waved his hands and fired a Devil Flame tornado towards the head of the Jellyfish.
The Sea Jellyfish wasn’t too slow in its response as well, quickly raising numerous tentacles to defend itself.
When the Devil Flame tornado blasted onto the tentacles, a number of the tentacles which consisted mostly of water instantly turned into ash. In just a few breaths, the Sea Jellyfish was able to regenerate out another few tentacles. Type 4 Mutant Beasts possessed terrifying regenerative abilities, and this was one of their advantages.
Yue Zhong was not so overconfident to think that he could take care of the Jellyfish that easily. After firing that flame ball, he immediately dashed behind a building and activated his Second Order Stealth.
When the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish saw the person that injured it had disappeared, it went into a rage, and released multiple electrical charges outwards. The rampage caused many zombies to be instantly electrocuted to death, and the region where it was had turned into a nightmare of electricity. Over thousands of zombies were instantly wiped out.
“Damn it! These Overlords are sure hard to deal with.” Amaterasu watched as the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish continued to consume the evolved zombies around it, and it quickly gave an order to the evolved zombies to retreat. To Amaterasu, the death of the countless ordinary zombies would not cause it much ache, but any evolved zombie of Type 2 and above were elite soldiers, and had consumed a large number of people and Mutant Beasts to get to where they were. They were its cards to use in conquering the world.
A large number of evolved zombies began to retreat, while ordinary zombies surged forwards, swallowed up by those Mutant Sea Jellyfishes.
The corpse Amaterasu might be wild and crazy, but its intelligence wasn’t low, as he thought of the crux of the problem: “The Sea Clan! Those merpeople are the cause of this. As long as I wipe them out, these Mutant Beasts would naturally collapse!”
Many of the Mutant Beasts followed the law of the jungle, where the strong preyed on the weak. Larger fishes consumed the smaller ones, while the smaller ones consumed prawns and the smaller life forms. It was a cruel world. If it wasn’t for the strange power that held control over them, then they couldn’t possibly co-exist or even gather together for this joint assault. If the power controlling them was done in, then these beasts would naturally fall.
The moment Amaterasu came to this conclusion, it closed its eyes and started to sense for the existences of the Sea Clan. It had a mystical ability, in that within a 50 km radius, it could get information from the zombies. Even for ordinary zombies that had no eyesight, it could make use of their undamaged eyes to look on the battlefield. Of course, it was an ability that required all of its concentration. Furthermore, beyond the radius, it could only make use of the various Z-Types to control the troops.
Under its command, over a thousand S2s began to charge towards the direction of the Sea Clan.
A vast majority of those S2s were directly killed by the Mutant Beasts and the sea warriors, however, a portion managed to breach the defences, and entered the inner circle of the Sea Clan.
The closer they got, the tighter the defences. With the suicidal charge of those S2s, only a few managed to reach the region that was guarded by those burly whale-head soldiers. Only then did they catch sight of the intelligent merpeople guarded heavily.
Those S2s had just seen the merpeople when the whale-head warriors immediately shot forwards and smashed those S2s into meat paste.
Right before the moment the S2s were turned into meat paste, the corpse Amaterasu opened its eyes with delight, and a savage smile broke out on its face: “I’ve got you! Damn merpeople, you can all die for me. The land belongs to me the god Amaterasu.”
Since it had discovered the traces of the merpeople, Amaterasu quickly issued out a number of commands.
The zombies all around Yokosuka Base stirred and made their way towards the Sea Clan and Mutant Beasts, as fighting and killing broke out everywhere.
The evolved zombies of Type 2 and above were split into 8 troops, avoiding the 7 invincible Type 4 Mutant Beasts, and launched a ferocious attack on the Sea Clan from 4 different directions.
Each troop was headed by 8 L4s, their strength exceeding even those of Type 3 Mutant Beasts. Furthermore, there were Devourers and S4s supporting them, and huge number of the sea warriors and lesser Mutant Beasts were torn apart.
The ordinary zombies might not be able to cause much damage, but that was not to say they were useless. The Mutant Beasts would get distracted while attacking the ordinary zombies, leaving them vulnerable to the evolved ones. At the same time, with the large number of zombie pressing forward, and squeezing all the parties together, it was easier for the L2s and L3s to pummel them into mush.
The 7 Type 4 Mutant Beasts turned their attention to the 8 different groups and chased after them.
Amaterasu had somehow picked up on tactics by itself, and under its command, the 8 separate forces did not engage the Type 4 behemoths, only escaping further into the sea of zombies.
The 7 Type 4 Mutant Beasts charged into the midst of the horde, and flattened countless zombies into meat paste. Each of them was the size of a large cruise, and in their path, corpses laid strewn all over the ground, in varying degrees of flattened flesh and splattered blood. It seemed as though nothing could pose a threat to those Type 4 Mutant Beasts.
Chapter 386: Tyrannical Corpse Amaterasu!
When the attention of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts was on the zombie horde, every single action of theirs caused the surrounding zombies to be flattened into meat paste. With every passing second, there were over thousands of zombies being taken out of commission. That was the problem with the zombies, their densely packed formation caused them to suffer as an entire bunch.
Yue Zhong had no way of killing over tens of thousands of zombies in one blow, but the 7 Type 4 Mutant Beasts could easily trample over them as long as they were willing to.
With the 7 behemoths lured away, 300-over L4s, a thousand over S4s, and 500 Devourers led a huge horde of Type 2 & 3 zombies numbering at least in the dozens of thousands out from one shelter.
This huge horde that could easily decimate any human troops quickly reached the centre of the sea warriors, and began their clash against the Mutant Beasts.
This huge army of zombies with the L4s leading the charge were the elite zombies under the control of Amaterasu. It had gathered most of the Type 4 evolved and Type 3 evolved, before launching this sudden assault. Its intelligence wasn’t low, and it had already learnt how to implement tactics.
Those L4s were like tanks as they charged into the battlefield, and any unfortunate sea warrior that stood in their way were obliterated like ants.
There were many Type 3 Mutant Beasts within the army of the Sea Clan, however, they were ripped apart easily by the joint assault of those L4s, S4s and Devourers. The Type 3 Mutant Beasts might be large, but the Type 4 evolved zombies and Devourers possessed enough might to threaten their existence. Surrounded by those zombies, they could only succumb to the onslaught. Of course, many Type 4 evolved zombies were also devoured by the other Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
Facing the attack of the evolved zombies, the elite of the Sea Clan finally made their move. Those killer whale-heads and tiger shark-warriors which were at least 7m in height stepped forwards. Even the merpeople they were guarding started to act.
With the killer whales and tiger sharks warriors stepping in the fray, and the powerful large bones from unknown creatures they wielded, every strike or smash would kill dozens of evolved zombies. Even the strong L3s were knocked back quite a distance when hit.
The beautiful merpeople were not sitting idly by as well. They activated their own abilities, causing the waves below them to rise up in towering levels, before forming sharp ice spikes to shoot down towards the evolved zombies.
These merpeople then raised their hands again, and the water beneath them became powerful pressurized cannons that blasted those frozen zombies struck by the previous ice shards. Due to the high pressure, the water blasts caused those ice statues to be disintegrated, including the zombies frozen within.
One L4 was currently engaging a Killer Whale warrior in combat. Both had thick skin for defences that would not lose to tanks. The Killer Whale warrior might be stronger in its offence, but due to the defence of the L4, victory was not certain in the short period of time.
At this time, a sharp ice shard shot out from the middle of the battlefield, piercing the right hand of the L4, and it immediately broke apart to freeze the entire right arm of the L4.
The Killer Whale warrior took the chance to hammer down on the head of the L4. The mighty blow instantly smashed the brain of the L4, causing it to ooze out of the orifices.
After dealing with the L4 with that explosive blow, the Killer Whale warrior then swung its powerful bone weapon around, smashing the dozens of S-types back before it charged towards another area.
It was at this time when countless H1 appeared in one high-rise building. They opened their huge mouths, and fired multiple fireballs on the Sea Clan down below.
In a blink of an eye, the sea warriors were bombarded by the rain of fireballs. The lower-level sea warriors were either instantly killed or suffered heavy injuries. As for the Killer Whales and Tiger Shark warriors, they were protected by the thick scales on their bodies.
Under the protection of those powerful guards of the Sea Clan, the merpeople caused the waves beneath them to rise into the sky, forming a water barrier. When the fireballs landed on that water protection, they were smothered.
“Hahaha! Go to hell!” Just then, Amaterasu shot through, turning into flash of light covered by the rain of fireballs. He fired out multiple blood-covered bones, and pierced through the bodies of 2 mermen.
Having killed 2 merpeople explosively, he then fired out 4 other sharp spikes, and pierced another 2 mermen and 2 mermaids.
6 merpeople died just like that. This caused the rest of the merpeople to be enraged. This time, the total number of merpeople that had come up shore numbered about a hundred, with 6 of them dead, that represented almost 10% of their forces. In the eyes of these merpeople, the deaths of the low-level sea warriors and Mutant Beasts weren’t important, however, every member of their merpeople race was important.
The positions of each merperson suddenly began to churn with seawater, as multiple ice shards formed and shot towards Amaterasu.
Facing that scale of attack that even blocked out the sun, Amaterasu retracted the blood chain connecting it with a nearby building. It managed to dodge a large number of the ice shards and pressurized water cannons. It shot towards the roof of the building like a bullet, and only 7 or 8 ice shards managed to land on it, causing its right arm to be encased in ice.
Amaterasu flung its arm casually, causing the ice to break away. It then tugged at its blood chain, pulling itself towards another building.
At that next instant, an endless chill enveloped the building it was on previously, shattering all the glass windows and wrapping the entire building.
Amaterasu had just evaded that powerful joint attack from the merpeople, and quickly escaped to another location, before he suddenly launched a sneak attack from there and killed another 4 merpeople. He then disappeared.
Yue Zhong watched the corpse Amaterasu hunting the merpeople with its guerilla tactics and shock filled his eyes: “What a terrifying fellow.”
Each time it appeared in the midst of the merpeople, one or 2 would die at its hands. Whereas the merpeople could not do anything to it other than react.
Amaterasu might be arrogant, but it truly possessed the strength to do so. It continued to support the sea of zombies through its command, while launching its own attacks on the merpeople. It wasn’t too far off to say that it was already a top existence of the food chain.
Watching their comrades being killed by Amaterasu, the mermaids began to sing out loud in their bewitching voices.
The song of the merpeople was more melodious and enchanting than any song in the world before the apocalypse. When Yue Zhong heard the song, his killing intent and combat state started to dissipate.
The 7 Type 4 Mutant Beasts were already filled with bloodlust and their eyes were red after slaughtering such a large number of zombies. These evolved zombies were all delicacies to them. After all, being Overlords in their own parts of the ocean, it was hard for the merpeople to fully control them. Therefore, when the song resounded across the battlefield, the Type 4 Mutant Beasts which had almost lost control began to calm down, slowly retreating and moving towards the merpeople.
Amaterasu’s eyes were bloodshot as well, and it let out a shrill shriek. The countless ordinary zombies immediately followed the charge of dozens of thousands of Type 2 zombies to launch a kamikaze attack on the Type 4 Mutant Beasts.
The H1s that were all hiding in various buildings opened their mouths and began to spit out fireballs after fireballs on the Type 4 Mutant Beasts. The rain of fireballs fell on the scales of the Type 4 behemoths, exploding on their scales.
Among the 7 of them, the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was the weakest. It could control electricity and generate powerful lightning charges, with huge potential for destruction, considerably high among the 7 of them. However, its defences were the weakest, and the fireballs from the H1s could damage it.
Facing the hail of fireballs, the Sea Jellyfish could not help but stop and covered its head with its tentacles. When the dense barrage of fireballs exploded on its tentacles, they were blasted apart, mucus and slime splashing everywhere.
However, it was still a Type 4 Mutant Beast in the end, with powerful regenerative abilities. Each time it lost a tentacle, it would quickly grow back one. That was not to say that the attack was ineffective though, as the pain was enough to cause the mighty Sea Jellyfish to scream out in pain.
As the H1s were focused on assaulting the Sea Jellyfish, the thousands of S2s shot towards it, using their sharp claws to tear into its skin, causing its slime and mucus to ooze out from the wounds.
The Sea Jellyfish endured the pain and began to channel its innate ability, as thousands of lightning charges fire out from it, enveloping the zombies all around it, and instantly frying over thousands of the Type 2 evolved zombies.
Under the command of Amaterasu, the evolved zombies continued to launch their attacks of the Sea Jellyfish.
The H1s atop the buildings also began to concentrate their firing on the Sea Jellyfish, suppressing it at its location. Facing the swarm of zombies, the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish had no choice but to continue and fire its innate ability, as lightning charges continued to electrocute thousands of Type 2 zombies into charred beings.
The Type 4 Sea Jellyfish had countless subordinates, but they were likewise being held up by the other zombie groups, unable to render their leader any help.
Chapter 387: Mer-people Royal Family!
The Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was surrounded like by the countless zombies, and it could neither advance nor retreat, its strength whittled away slowly.
The remaining 6 Type 4 Mutant Beasts were being assaulted on all sides by the sea of zombies as well, it was just that they had tough and resilient scales. The fireballs of the H1s were only mildly painful to them, and could not actually damage them.
However, there were about 50 Devourers amidst the sea of zombies attacking the 6 Type 4 Mutant Beasts, and as these Devourers possessed high offense and combat ability, they were stronger than ordinary zombies by countless times.
The 50 Devourers did not engage the 6 Type 4 Mutant Beasts in direct combat, instead, they leaped about from building to building, from time to time, firing their toxic bile at the behemoths.
As long as the toxic bile hits any of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, countless zombies would rush over and try to tear into the scales of that Type 4 Mutant Beast.
Under the co-ordination of the corpse Amaterasu, the zombies were able to exhibit a terrifying combat strength. Although it wasn’t enough to instantly kill a Type 4 Mutant Beast, it was enough to suppress them, and caused them have difficulty sweeping or killing the zombies.
Each blow or strike from those behemoths could easily obliterate thousands of zombies, but by minimizing their movement, it was an effective tactic.
The horde of zombies managed to keep the Type 4 Mutant Beasts at bay, preventing them from providing aid to the merpeople. Amaterasu then went all out, waving its right hand, and sending 4 blood-like bone spikes to pierce the heads of 4 singing mermaids. It then twisted the bone spikes, sucking up the life force of the mermaids, turning them into shrivelled mummies.
The merpeople roared out in rage, and sent yet another mighty wave of ice shards shooting towards Amaterasu.
Amaterasu did not try to dodge or escape to another area, instead, its blood river appeared once again, pouring out of its body, and surrounding itself. The blood river became some sort of a protection, and Amaterasu then continued its charge into the group of merpeople.
The countless ice shards and the incredible cold enveloped the blood shield, and the powerful freezing ability turned the blood rock-solid.
Seeing the shield of blood being frozen, delight flashed past the eyes of the merpeople. The corpse Amaterasu was simply too overbearing, and it was more threatening than even the Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
With a loud crack, the frozen blood river burst open, and a pale-faced Amaterasu leaped out, jumping into the middle of the group of merpeople.
As it stood on a piece of frozen blood shard on the waves, its right hand shot out a 100m-long sharp bone blade, and it slashed outwards at the merpeople.
The faces of the merpeople fell, and some controlled their waves to send themselves into the sky. Some retreated into the waves, while others controlled the waves to turn into ice shields to block the incoming assault.
With a single slash, Amaterasu caused 6 beautiful merpeople to be sliced into two. It then took the chance to shoot out bone spikes and pierce the bodies of 4 others, before it started absorbing their blood essence, leaving them empty and void of blood.
After absorbing the blood essence of those 4 merpeople, Amaterasu regained a little of its life force, and its pale face regained some color: “The blood essence of you merpeople is not bad! Give me your knowledge and intelligence!!”
Amaterasu laughed savagely, before it shot in front of a beautiful mermaid with an incredible body, and suddenly opened its mouth beyond what was normally capable, and covered the head of the mermaid. It then bit it off in one bite, chewing gruesomely.
Although the corpse Amaterasu looked like a human on the surface, it was a terrible existence. It had the ability to absorb intelligence and knowledge by ingesting the brain of certain life forms, hence, gaining and growing its own capabilities and intelligence.
Amaterasu laughed savagely, and appeared behind another member of the Sea Clan, before piercing its body and absorbing its blood essence: “The language of the Sea Clan! I’m a genius! Haha!”
It became even more courageous and its momentum built up the more it killed and absorbed. Finally, it became a sort of blood-red flash. Every time the blood figure flashed by a mermaid or merman, an emaciated corpse would be all that remained floating on the sea.
After continuously absorbing the blood essence of dozens of merpeople, Amaterasu caught sight of a 1.45m little mermaid, looking about 12 or 13, wearing a crown with a mysterious pattern and inlaid with a number of crystals. The little lady was childish-looking, but she had an exceptional aura to her, and her figure was explosive, and Amaterasu immediately roared in excitement: “Mermaid Queen! It’s you! Become part of me!!”
It then turned into a flash of light and shot towards the little mermaid. The 8 personal guards around the little mermaid roared out in rage and activated their abilities as countless ice shards fired at Amaterasu.
The countless ice picks rained down on the blood-red flash, but was instantly shattered, as Amaterasu appeared in front of the little mermaid. 4 bones with a tinge of blood pierced 4 of the female guards, and sucked them dry.
After absorbing them fully and breaking their defences, Amaterasu reached out and grabbed towards the little mermaid’s heart.
The little mermaid stared back at the ferocious looking corpse, and a strange rune flashed brightly on her chest, as she opened her little mouth and blew out a dense and powerful mist that enveloped Amaterasu.
The white fog instantly turned Amaterasu into an ice sculpture.
After she had casted that ice fog over Amaterasu, the little mermaid turned incredibly pale, and her hands clutched her chest as she took ragged breaths. It was evident that the ability earlier took a large toll on her.
With a ‘kacha’, the huge ice sculpture broke apart, and Amaterasu stepped out, as he laughed savagely: “What a powerful ice ability. However, if you want to seal me, it’s still slightly lacking.”
Seeing the unharmed Amaterasu, all the merpeople had expressions of despair.
At this time, the Type 4 Dragon Beast that looked like a diplodocus opened its huge mouth from afar and fired its innate ability, as a huge white beam of icy energy shot over, blasting the body of Amaterasu, encasing it in a huge pillar of ice over 10m tall.
When they saw this, the mermaids all erupted in cheers. The Type 4 Mutant Dragon Beast’s innate ability was the manipulation of ice, and when it fired its ice energy, it could even seal up fellow Type 4 Mutant Beasts.
As the merpeople were celebrating, Yue Zhong suddenly shot out from a small alley with lightning speed, reaching the Mermaid Queen and grabbing her neck. A thin spider silk shot out from his left hand, wrapping around her body, and began absorbing her Stamina.
Once he captured her, he didn’t even spare a look back and ducked back into the dark alleyway. He had no interest in fighting it out with the merpeople.
Yokosuka Base was destined to fall. It would either be overrun by zombies, or conquered by the Sea Clan. All Yue Zhong could do was to try and get as many benefits as he could before running away.
When the Mermaid Queen was captured by Yue Zhong, she let out a sharp scream, at the same time using an unrecognizable language. Yue Zhong could not understand it, and did not know what she was shouting about.
She was evidently an important member though, as the moment she was captured, the rest of the merpeople immediately mobilized and chased after Yue Zhong with a terrifying chill.
Facing the powerful ice shards coming his way, he raised the body of the Mermaid Queen in front of him, acting as a shield.
When they saw this, the rest of the merpeople became shocked and furious and controlled the ice shards to change trajectory.
Yue Zhong then tugged at his spider silk, and he instantly leaped up to the roof of a building.
A powerful gust of wind blew, and Greenie came soaring through the skies, descending on the roof. Yue Zhong hugged the little mermaid close to him before jumping onto Greenie’s back.
Greenie flapped its wings once and soared into the skies.
After they were airborne, Yue Zhong heaved a sigh of relief. The center of the battlefield had been too dangerous, any single Type 4 Mutant Beast could have heavily injured him, if not kill him.
The defences of the Sea Clan were also strong, if it weren’t for the corpse Amaterasu punching a huge hole into their defence, Yue Zhong would not have been able to capture the little mermaid.
Zhao Tian Gang saw Yue Zhong carrying the little mermaid and could not help but sigh: “This is a mermaid? So beautiful… I’d never have thought that I could see one from the legends.”
The little mermaid continued to struggle in Yue Zhong’s clutches, however she was already tied up tight in those spider silk, hence she looked pitiful yet adorable at the same time.
Qiao Xing could not help but ask: “Leader, you’ve caught a mermaid. When will we be obtaining the cruiser of the 7th Fleet?”
The 7th Fleet of the U.S. Navy was not just a huge cruiser, it also possessed powerful combat capabilities. It was the symbol of strength, and prior to the apocalypse, it was a famous icon in Southeast Asia. Qiao Xing wanted to get his hands on it badly, and to drive it around.
Chapter 388: Hitting Corpse Amaterasu Hard!
The corpse Amaterasu possessed intelligence, and was a variant mutation of the zombie virus. In addition to its intelligence, it was insanely strong. If it continued to grow, it might take over the whole of Japan, after which, it might launch assault other areas with Japan as its base.
The moment Yue Zhong imagined Amaterasu commanding over millions of zombies to launch an assault on him, his heart turned cold.
Previously, he had led his army to destroy millions of zombies, and each time, it was mainly due to killing the Z2 that he was able to achieve his objectives. However, it was never once a case of killing the zombies themselves. With his current strength, if he were to meet Amaterasu commanding millions and billions of zombies on the battlefield, he would definitely perish.
Zhao Tian Gang and the rest saw Yue Zhong’s serious expression and their hearts sank, not saying anything.
Yue Zhong tied the little mermaid securely onto Greenie’s back, before looking back down. He was hoping that Amaterasu would die in the battle below. However, his gut feeling told him that it would not be as simple as he imagined.
The merpeople had watched helplessly as Yue Zhong kidnapped their queen, and their hearts were filled with rage. 2 9m-tall Whale Shark warriors wielded their large Mutant Beasts bones and swung it viciously at the ice sculpture containing Amaterasu, hoping to smash it into smithereens.
Suddenly, things took a different turn. The ice sculpture blasted apart, and the handsome Amaterasu stepped out, its face incredibly pale. Its right shoulder had been gravely injured, and there were many areas where its bones were showing. Even its chest had a large hole. However, there was no blood seeping out from its wounds.
If an ordinary person were to suffer such injuries, they would have long perished. However, Amaterasu just turned into a beam of bloody light and shot deep into the horde.
The innate abilities of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts were too fearsome, it had expended all its energy to escape from that icy prison. If it had to take on another blow from any of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, it might really succumb to its injuries.
The 2 9m-tall Whale Shark warriors quickly chased after Amaterasu, smashing it amidst a rain of shattered bones and blood.
Amaterasu let out a pitiful scream and hurried towards a building before disappearing.
The 2 Whale Shark warriors continued their pursuit, only to discover an empty location. With their speed, they weren’t a match for Amaterasu, and there was only a chance to injure Amaterasu if they had the opportunity to get close.
They bellowed in rage and cursed in their Sea Clan tongue, but it was useless.
When Amaterasu escaped into a building, a powerful fiery blade slashed out from the dark, slicing its body and combusting it in a burst of flames.
The resulting explosion lit up the entire area, revealing Yue Zhong’s determined face. He had tied the little mermaid to Greenie, before activating his Second Order Stealth and predicting the best escape route for Amaterasu. He had waited patiently, till Amaterasu appeared, and finally launched his fearsome attack, hitting Amaterasu hard once more.
Amaterasu roared out again in agony, before shooting out 4 sharp bone spikes towards Yue Zhong.
The Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade in Yue Zhong’s arms flashed and shot out a few blade beams to counter Amaterasu’s bone spikes, but was forced a few steps backwards from the might of the clash.
“It’s you, human?!” The heavily injured Amaterasu stared hatefully at Yue Zhong, spitting out: “The mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind! You have already snatched the Type 4 Mutant Beast and the Mermaid Queen from my hands, and now you want to kill me?”
A cold glint flashed in Yue Zhong’s eyes, as he activated his Shadow Steps and Devil Flame, covering the Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade with the powerful flames, slashing towards Amaterasu: “That’s right! Submit to me, and pledge your allegiance to me. Otherwise, today shall be the day you die!”
Amaterasu brought up its own blood-colored bone blade to parry Yue Zhong’s attack, as a bloody fog began to steam from the blade. Its eyes flashed with an arrogant look: “Human, even if I am heavily injured, I will not be humiliated by you lowly scum. Human, I’m appreciative of your cunning and strength. Submit to me, become my subordinate, and work for me. I can grant you power, status, riches and beautiful virgins. There’re over 70,000 humans here in Yokosuka Base. As long as you work for me, you can become their leader. Their lives and deaths will be yours to control.”
When Yue Zhong heard it, his face seemingly twitched as he lowered his blade: “Really?”
The corners of Amaterasu’s mouth lifted slightly: “Of course! There’s an absolutely beautiful pair of twins in the 5th Bunker. As long as you work for me, they are yours.”
Having swallowed a large number of human brains, Amaterasu had an understanding of human nature. To men, power, status, riches and women were the things they wanted the most. Hence, it wanted to try to entice Yue Zhong with these promises.
Yue Zhong nodded lightly, and he stepped forwards: “Alright! I’ll go with you!”
Amaterasu grinned, pleased, and produced a dark red drop of blood in its palms. It then spoke somewhat alluringly: “This is my blood essence. If you promise to be loyal, swallow this. Once you swallow this, you’ll be the leader of all the humans in Yokosuka Base. When I control Japan, you’ll be Japan’s king. When I control the world, you’ll be the human king by my side that I trust. Many people would look up to you in reverence, and tremble at your prestige and might. The only price is your loyalty to me.”
The position of a king was pretty enticing to any man. Many ambitious people before the apocalypse would have thought of ruling at once. However, most had failed. In the past, it was an unattainable goal. But now, it might be possible.
“Let me see!” Yue Zhong eyed the blood essence with an expression of pondering as he walked forwards.
All of a sudden, he swung his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade covered in Devil Flames, slashing Amaterasu across its chest. The fiery flames combusted and caused a large hole on Amaterasu’s body, as its blood essence was burnt and sizzled into the air.
“YOU DARE TRICK ME!” Amaterasu roared in rage and pain, and fired out 4 sharp bone spikes at Yue Zhong.
In response, Yue Zhong swung out and parried the incoming bone spikes, before casting his Gravity Manipulation, as a two-fold gravitational force weighed down on Amaterasu, causing it to sink and lose its balance.
Yue Zhong then grabbed the chance to swing once more, slashing out at Amaterasu’s body, and burning more of its blood.
Amaterasu roared out again, shooting a dense wave of blood that was shrouded in evil energy. If Yue Zhong came into contact with this move, he would definitely be sucked dry of his blood.
Yue Zhong fired his Devil Flames again, sending it to burn the evil blood energy into fumes.
When Amaterasu saw its blood essence being burned, it immediately turned tail and tried to escape out in a blood-red flash.
By now, Amaterasu was at its weakest, having been assaulted over and over, it had lost all of its fighting will, and desperately wanted to escape.
Yue Zhong fired out a beam of Devil Flame, enveloping the flash of light that Amaterasu had become, as the flames burned brightly and fiercely. Endless amount of bloody fumes continued to rise into the sky.
Under the merciless burning of the Devil Flame, a crystal-clear bead of blood dropped out from the beam of light that was Amaterasu.
Yue Zhong shot forward, however, he suddenly felt an overwhelming sense of danger and he quickly retreated, before 2 sharp bone spikes smashed apart a nearby wall, chasing after him.
Yue Zhong hurriedly swung his blade and broke apart one bone spike, but unfortunately, the other bone spike managed to pierce his body. It tore apart the Bone Encompassing Armor he had activated, piercing the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, before it was forcefully stopped by the Level 4 Protective Vest.
Yue Zhong felt some cold sweat, if he hadn’t dodge in time, he would been pierced. If it were any other Mutant Beast it wouldn’t be so bad, however, this was Amaterasu he was facing. It was simply a freak of nature that carried the deadly zombie virus, and if he was pierced, he might have become a zombie as well.
Even Evolvers and Enhancers had no means of defending against the virus. Only the Mutant Beasts were somewhat invulnerable, as they were affected early on and had mutated themselves.
Taking the chance when Yue Zhong was distracted and stopped by the bone spikes, Amaterasu hurriedly charged out once again, before disappearing into the night.
When Amaterasu had gained intelligence, it had also learned the fear of death. In fact, it still possessed some strength to contend against Yue hong. However, it wasn’t willing to bet its life, and just wanted to escape into the horde to recuperate. At that time, it could come back and deal with Yue Zhong as it wished.
Yue Zhong looked in the direction which Amaterasu had disappeared with, sighing with regret: “Shit, it still managed to escape.”
This time, Yue Zhong had made use of the opportunity of Amaterasu being ambushed by the Type 4 Mutant Beasts to attack it. If it were based on their actual strength, Amaterasu could even injure and kill a Type 4 Mutant Beast, hence it was definitely stronger than Yue Zhong.
Chapter 389: Killing the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish!
“What is this?” Yue Zhong came up to the blood red crystal-like bead, and used the Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade to poke it gingerly. Nothing happened. He hesitated a little before reaching out for it.
The blood-red crystal-like bead was as smooth as jade, and it radiated a brilliant red colour, as though it was capable of drawing any gaze that was cast upon it.
Yue Zhong held it, and could feel a warm flow of energy circulating into his body. His blood essence seemed to quicken, and his muscles seemed to strengthen as well.
As he held it for 20 seconds, a notification sounded in his mind: “Congratulations, you have gained an enhancement of +1 in Strength.”
When he heard that, delight flashed in his eyes: “This is a treasure! Definitely a good treasure!”
Yue Zhong’s body was enhanced to a terrifying degree at this point. Most ordinary treasures were ineffective to him. The meat of a Type 4 Mutant Beast was extremely nutritious and could boost vitality. If it were to be given to an ordinary person after training, their bodies could be strengthened to about three or even four times of their original state. However, for Yue Zhong, it would at most enhance his stats by a little, because his body was simply too strong. The vitality of mutant beast meat can no longer enhance him.
The higher a biological life form evolved, the harder it would be to take the next step. It was true for the Mutant Beasts, and it was true for humans as well.
The blood bead that dropped from Amaterasu’s body was some unknown treasure. From the way it could strengthen Yue Zhong by just holding onto it for 20 seconds, it was apparently something very god.
With a thought, he kept the blood red bead back into his storage ring. Upon seeing it enter successfully, he heaved a sigh of relief.
The storage ring could not accommodate living things, and if the bead had been a biological thing, it would be impossible to store it in the ring.
After hesitating for a moment, he did not wear the blood red bead, and instead chose to open up the blue box that had dropped upon killing the Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake.
“Level 7 Treasure: Sea Mask. Wearing this allows the user to breathe freely underwater. Swimming speed will be boosted, and the mask also negates the resistance and pressure of water. The mask can withstand damage from 25mm caliber bullets and below. Accompanying skill: Water Jet. Description of skill: Fires a high-powered torrent of water so that the user can travel in a straight line at high speeds. Lasts for 10 minutes.”
The Sea Mask was a sky-blue colored mask that was engraved with countless runes, and it seemed capable of covering a person’s face. There were holes where the eyes, nose and mouth were supposed to be, and it was enveloped by a layer of transparent film.
He took it and thought while eyeing it: “This is a treasure for sea combat.”
This Sea Mask was like some diving gear, except that it was much stronger and better. However, it didn’t add much to ordinary battles.
He kept the Sea Mask into his ring, and activated the Second Order Stealth, carefully making his way back into the battlefield.
At the center, countless Mutant Beasts were engaged in an all-out slaughter with the zombies. There were corpses of both sides littered everywhere.
He relied on his Stealth to slowly carve and dig out all the Blood Essence and Nuclei from the various high level Mutant Beasts corpses, before keeping them.
Within the Yokosuka Base, there was a large number of Type 2 Mutant Beasts and a decent number of Type 3 Mutant BEasts. Even these powerful life forms were being killed by the Type 4 zombies.
Soon, Yue Zhong managed to gather about 20 nuclei and blood essences from the Type 2 Mutant Beasts, and about 4 nuclei and blood essences from Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
“My chance is here!” His eyes suddenly lit up, as he charged towards the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish.
At this time, the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was dragging its large body backwards, and the surrounding electrical charges were dimming. Behind it, there were plenty of charred corpses, over 50,000 zombies had been electrocuted to death by it.
Countless fireballs blasted multiple wounds on the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish’s body. The ant-like S2s were crawling all over it while tearing and ripping its body, causing more injuries.
A number of Devourers continued to fire corrosive bile at the Mutant Sea Jellyfish, corroding large gaping holes in its body. The Mutant Sea Jellyfish might be able to regenerate from the wounds caused by the S2s and H1s, but the corrosive damage from the Devourers prevented any form of healing, furthermore, there was an intense stench that was being emitted b the wounds.
Evolved zombies were like ants to the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish, and it could easily flatten or crush any them. But even it would suffer under their swarm and continuous onslaught.
It reached out with its massive tentacles to either slap away or bring some s2s into its mouth, as it attempted to make its way to the sea. It had no more strength to activate its innate ability, and it wanted to escape badly to recover.
However, it was as though the zombies could feel the vulnerability of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish, as many of them rushed over to surround and attack it.
Countless zombies were blocking the rest of the Mutant Beasts from providing any assistance, and both sides were thus locked in battle.
The tentacles of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish flew about, smashing numerous S2s and S3s into smithereens. However, more S-Types continued to crawl all over it, tearing into its body. They even dug into the exposed wounds, further threatening the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish. In response, it would emit out some electrical charges from time to time, lighting up the area and charring any unfortunate zombies within a kilometer of it.
As the storm died down, the charred black corpses of the S-Types fell from the body of the Sea Jellyfish. However, the Sea Jellyfish was in no better shape, it slumped to the ground, and seemed to be out of energy.
The Sea Jellyfish’s innate ability was one of the strongest offensive abilities among the 8 Type 4 Mutant Beasts, but it also was one of the most energy consuming abilities. The Type 4 Sea Jellyfish made its final charge before slumping to the ground, exhausted.
Countless evolved zombies rushed towards the Sea Jellyfish. It didn’t matter what level the zombies were, the flesh and blood of a Type 4 Mutant Beast were extremely tempting.
Just then, from within the horde of zombies, Yue Zhong with his body wrapped in bone armor reached out with his right hand, and a sharp bone spike shot out and supported him all the way to the head of the Sea Jellyfish.
The H1s that had been hiding in the various buildings fired their fireballs at Yue Zhong. They were afraid that he would steal the precious blood essence and nuclei.
A bright shield appeared in front of Yue Zhong, blocking those incoming fireballs.
Yue Zhong wielded his Black Tooth Blade and slashed down viciously at the head of the Sea Jellyfish. With a Strength of over 10 times a normal person, the strike caused a large gaping wound, and mucus started to flow out.
Yue Zhong then swiftly put on the Sea Mask that he had just obtained, and burrowed directly into the body of the Sea Jellyfish.
It was a mask that allowed the user to breathe freely in liquid, hence Yue Zhong was able to dive inside the body of the Sea Jellyfish that was 95% water. He then pulled out his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade and slashed about randomly, tearing flesh and nerves.
As he continued to wreak havoc in the body of the Sea Jellyfish, he noticed a blue nucleus, as well as a bright red blood essence. They were surrounded by a number of white pearls amidst the nerves and tissues.
Yue Zhong reached out to grab the 2 of them, before pulling hard. He then used his blade to severe the different nerves and muscles, causing the brain of the Sea Jellyfish to immediately shutdown.
“Congratulations on achieving Level 81, you’ve gained 2 attribute points to be allocated.” The moment the brain of the Sea Jellyfish was mutilated by Yue Zhong, he received a large orb of experience, directly causing him to level up.
“These should be all precious treasures, I shall keep them for now.” Yue Zhong eyed the mass of white pearls, and encased them in a glass container before keeping it into his ring.
Even the flesh and blood of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish was a hard-to-come-by delicacy, Yue Zhong quickly sliced some off, and kept them into his ring, before hurriedly burrowing out.
He had just emerged from the body of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish when a gust of wind blew towards him, as a sharp claw made grab at his body. It was an S4 that had just climbed onto the body of the Sea Jellyfish and was intending to attack him.
Yue Zhong swung his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade, slashing the S4 was directly sliced into two, and a Skill Book dropped out.
Yue Zhong looked down and saw the sea of zombies crawling all over the body of the Type 4 Sea Jellyfish, devouring its body.
The blue colored box had landed in the sea of zombies.
Since anything that dropped out of a Type 4 Beast was bound to be a treasure, Yue Zhong took one look at the box, and leaped down after it.
Chapter 390: Electromagnetic Gun
The horde of zombies looked at Yue Zhong leaping down and immediately reached out with their claws to swipe at him. It was like a hell of demented souls reaching for him.
As he landed, Yue Zhong fired out numerous bone blades from his Bone Encompassing Armor, before he twisted on the spot. In an instant, his whirlwind tactic caused the zombies within a 20m radius of him to be ground into slices. Body parts and blood splattered and flew everywhere.
Yue Zhong reached for the blue box, and the storage ring flashed, drawing the blue box in. He then shot out a sharp bone spike into the ground, propelling him towards a high building.
Even a Type 4 Mutant Beast could fall under the continuous attacks of the zombies, Yue Zhong was not stupid to think he could withstand their onslaught.
All of a sudden, a number of L4s and L3s grabbed the zombies beside them and flung towards Yue Zhong. A rain of zombies shot towards Yue Zhong like cannonballs.
The L-Types had bad aim, and most of them landed a distance away. There were a few who had slammed into walls and burst apart due to the impact.
Even so, 2 managed to hurtle towards Yue Zhong, flung viciously by the L4s.
Right as they were about to hit Yue Zhong, a white shield appeared again. The 2 zombies smashed into the shield and their bodies broke in various places. The shield also dimmed, falling back in Yue Zhong’s arms.
Yue Zhong dared not delay longer, and quickly rushed to the roof before releasing a long and sharp howl.
Hearing his summons, Greenie immediately swooped down, picking him up and soared back into the skies. Yue Zhong settled himself in, and looked down again for another chance to kill a Type 4 Mutant Beast.
If he was facing a Type 4 Mutant Beast at its tiptop condition, Yue Zhong would find it incredibly difficult to kill it. However, with the horde of zombies unwittingly assisting him, there might be a chance.
There were still 6 of the Type 4 behemoths. Everyone of them had incredibly thick armors, their defences astonishing. The H1s’ fireballs could not do anything, the L4s were helpless as well. Only the sharp claws of the S4s as well as the corrosive bile of the Devourers could do some damage to those thick scales.
Yue Zhong observed for some time, noting that there was no opportunity. He then signaled for Greenie to fly towards the 7th Fleet in the Yokosuka Base.
Currently, on the deck of the 7th Fleet, there were countless 1m-long Mutant Sea Lice with sharp teeth and their bodies covered with tentacles assaulting the American zombies.
The powerful tentacles of the Mutant Sea Lice propelled them like cannons, latching on to the different American Navy zombies, taking huge bites out of their brains.
Greenie descended and dropped Yue Zhong on the deck, and their attention swivelled towards him.
Facing the hundreds of Mutant Sea Lice, Greenie flapped its wings powerfully, its innate tornado ability blasting out, sending the little critters flying away.
Yue Zhong covered Zhao Tian Gang and the rest as they made their way to the control room, and they quickly got to wait.
Following the whirring of engines and the lighting up of some buttons, the cruiser began to come to life, and quickly made its way towards the sea.
There were over 70,000 survivors in the Yokosuka base, but the place was swarmed with Mutant Beasts and zombies fighting each other. It was hard for Yue Zhong to attempt a rescue. Furthermore, they weren’t Chinese, and he didn’t feel particularly bad about leaving them behind.
The moment the cruiser moved, a number of Mutant Beasts started to chase. However, because the cruiser was made for battle, unless the Type 3 or Type 4 Mutant Beasts made a move, the rest of the Mutant Beasts could not possibly block them.
However, the Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts were all locked in a crazy fight with the zombies, and the ordinary beasts could do nothing to hinder the 7th Fleet cruiser.
After breaking out of the surrounding of the Mutant Beasts, Yue Zhong heaved a long sigh of relief. Although he didn’t manage to obtain the entire Yokosuka Base, earning a mothership and cruiser was decent enough.
Especially since the mothership had a number of advanced fighter jets, once Yue Zhong gained full control of the mothership, he would have gained a huge boost in might.
The Kingdom of God might have the powerful Thunder Fighters, but these were all assault helicopters that were weaker against the fighter jets that were more superior in the air. After all, fighter jets were focused on aerial combat, as compared to the Thunder Fighters that focused on land.
After the apocalypse, Yue Zhong could use the Devil Flame to easily melt an assault helicopter, but it would be hard for him to destroy a fighter jet. This was because the speed of the fighter jets reached mach speed. Furthermore, their altitude was too high, it exceeded the range of what Yue Zhong was capable of.
Yue Zhong had started mass producing ammunition in the Yan Zhou City base, however, manufacturing fighter jets were impossible. Even with the advancement in technology over the next 10 years, it would be practically impossible to create the highly advanced fighter jets. After all, it was hard for China to have manufactured even before the apocalypse, needless to say the current situation.
Yue Zhong felt slightly more at ease, and opened the blue treasure box. With a flash of light, a strange gun appeared, its muzzle about 40mm wide, the body flashing with a black metallic lustre, and a number of gold lines wrapped around the body, converging around the muzzle like a spiral. The golden lines continued into a clear empty box below the muzzle, which contained even more of the golden metallic lines, and it looked extremely sci-fi.
“Level 7 Treasure: Single Light 40mm Caliber Electromagnetic Gun (I-Type). It fires a powerful electromagnetic pulse, everyday generating one bullet automatically. If user inputs nuclei, the Gun can use the nuclei as ammunition.”
Yue Zhong flipped the Electromagnetic Gun about in his hands, his eyes lit with excitement: “Good treasure!”
It was currently the most powerful assault rifle in his arsenal, with it, his destructive potential increased yet again.
As for nuclei, with the millions of citizens under him, and his promise of rewards to hunters, they could gather enough Mutant Beast nuclei to exchange at the government’s office, and the nuclei was free for Yue Zhong to use.
Ordinary humans could not make use of the nuclei from the Mutant BEasts, and only the Energy Converter, the Biological Armor, as well as the recent Electromagnetic Gun could utilize those. These treasures were all dropped from the rare Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts, and were hard to come by for most ordinary people.
The cruiser was speeding along in the sea, when suddenly, the surface of the sea started to churn and a number of Mutant Flying Fishes that were 3m long and sharp spikes all over their backs jumped out of the water, smashing into the cruiser.
Following the sounds of metals being struck, the countless Mutant Flying Fish continued to slam into the cruiser. The sea was rippling madly, as though there were many horrors awaiting to break through the surface.
Yue Zhong frowned as he thought anxiously: “What’s going on? Most of the high-level Mutant Beasts should be engaged in the battle at Yokosuka Base.”
When Yue Zhong had led his men to manoeuvre the mothership out of the base, there hadn’t been much disturbance from the Mutant Beast horde. However, this time, the cruiser had not even left for quite awhile and there was such a heavy onslaught. Something was not right.
“Could it be due to her?”
A thought arose in Yue Zhong’s mind, and he swiftly ran towards the control room.
The little mermaid’s mouth was open as she seemed to be continually singing something. Strange runes flashed on her chest. The moment she saw Yue Zhong, she became flustered, and stopped moving out of fear. The runes also died down.
“So it really is her.” Yue Zhong came to a swift judgment. He walked up to her and grabbed her, carrying her towards the observation window. True enough, the waves had settled down, and the crazy onslaught of the Mutant Flying Fishes had stopped.
He stared at the little mermaid and growled menacingly: “I know it was you. Little rascal, I don’t want this to happen again. If it happens again, don’t blame me for killing you.”
The pretty little mermaid kept her mouth shut, as she stared at Yue Zhong with a hint of fear, not saying a single word.
He could not do anything, since the language barrier was an issue. He was not like the corpse Amaterasu, swallowing the life force of other biological lives would enable him to learn all there was to learn about the race or species.
Yue Zhong suddenly felt excited as he looked at the adorable little mermaid. He felt as though it was possible for an endless number of Mutant Beasts lining up for his subordinates to kill: “This Mermaid Queen should be able to summon multiple Mutant Beasts. If used properly, we should be able to procure a large amount of sea-based products, and gain a large number of nuclei as well.”
All of sudden, a sharp scream that could send shivers down one’s spine resounded from a distance, and it caused everyone on the cruiser to tremble with fear.
