Ishizawa smashed the creatures scrawny limb repeatedly, but the creature seemed to be covered in some sort of exoskeletal armour because his strikes bounced off harmlessly. "Help me out here guys" he shouted back to Mongo and Monks who came running down to help Jonsson and Ishizawa freeing O'brien from the iron grip. O'briend started panicking and only with the marines united efforts they managed to pull him clear - A short burst from Ishizawa through the fence struck the creature square in the chest and it crumpled up and fell, completely limp into the darkness below. Ishizwa kicked the fence down into the shaft to get a better firing solution on the aliens that climbed the walls up towards them. He was joined with Mongo together they started firing down the shaft. Mongo scored two consecutive kills, hitting both creatures in the head with short bursts - Their heads exploding like eggs. "Yeah, get some!" he shouted excitedly and flashed a grin towards Ishizawa.

Kurosaki, Quinn and Lippa worked quickly and placed the charges behind firing positions I and II. "Charges set, get the fuck out!" he shouted. The Marines withdrew slowly, all while firing supressive fire down the corridors. Heart fired his smartgun from the hip, sending sweeping arcs of death down the corridor. He killed one, two, three but they kept coming. Two dashed towards him, he fired at the first one sending a burst square into its chest killing it instantly. The targetting system changed targets and he felt the machinegun tug to the right - He squeezed the firing trigger again. Two rounds came out of the gun then it stopped. Automatically he quickly pulled the charging handle and fired again. The gun clicked again he then grabbed for a new drum of ammunition, releasing the old one with a deft twitch of his thumb. The creature charged closer. "RELOADING!" he shouted. He slammed the new drum in, pulled the charging handle and then the creature was upon him. The alien slammed the barrel to the right with a furious slash the barrel banging in the wall and crashed into Heart who hell heavily square on his back. The creature was immensly heavy and hard, it felt like having a truckload of large rocks poured unto his chest. Heart feebly tried to grab after his backup weapon, but his arms where pinned. He looked up and time almost stopped. He creature opened it's mouth, saliva dripping i large strings onto his face. The aliens tongue shot out and entered his skull with a resounding crack, his left eye popped out from the impact and blood gushed over his face. His body squirmed and rattled in cramps as he died.

Steiner raised his weapon and let go a long burst, engulfing the Alien killing it instantly. Steiner grabbed Hearts dead, now smoking, body with one hand, holding his incinerator with one hand. "Cover me!" he shouted to Dugan and Patch who had advanced further back in the corridor. "Hurry!" Patch screamed, glancing at the set charges on the walls. Suddenly several aliens charged down the corridor towards Steiner. He fired a long burst with the incinerator, but the aliens was out of reach and when he fired again his weapon sputtered a few times and died. He threw it to the side, ducking down as Dugan and Patch fired their weapons in unison. Dugan scored a hit instantly, severly wounding his Alien before striking it in the chest again killing it. Patch missed his first burst, hitting with his second and bringing down an alien, striking it in the chest and left arm. The 10mm rounds exploding inside it, ripping it's armored skeleton to pieces.

Steiner now freed from the weight of the incinerator grabbed Hearts body with both hands and started backpedalling quickly. Dugan reloaded and Patch fired at the two remaining Aliens more or less over Steiners head. Patch killed the left alien after hitting it several times all over, the creature almost refusing to die fell to the floor screaming and twisting violently. Behind the lone alien, whom lost three of it's hivemates in seconds, more came dashing. Steiner was just a few meters away now, but so was the Alien. Patch couldn't fire and just as Dugan slammed in his new magazine the Alien crashed into Steiner showing its spiked tail straight through his thigh. Steiner screamed piercingly and Dugan fired his pulse rifle in two short bursts. "Brrrrt-brrrrt" the rounds sawed the creature almost in half, it's guts spilling onto Steiners chest and face. But Steiner had already stopped screaming, his thigh bone shattered he was already unconscious from blood loss and pain. Luckily he didn't feel his face melt off him like a cheese thrown into a crematory oven.

Dugan threw a glance over his shoulder and he saw Morse, Stormhurst, Honeysett and Pitt scramble back from their firing position. He then saw the grey wall of aliens pouring towards him in the corridor. "Blow the charges Kurosaki!"

Moments later an almost impossibly loud explosion ripped through the air, the marines fell to the floor from the enormous shockwave. A rumbling of the roof collapsing and filling the tunnel with tons upon tons of debris was heard instantly, the round itself rocked. A split second later a prolonged panicked scream of anguish pierced the intercom which was cut short moments later. "Fuck! Mongo fell into the shaft!" Ishizawa screamed in shock, but were still holding together as he was heard continuing firing down the shaft with his gun.

"It worked, the tunnels have collapsed" Kurosaki concluded. "Lets go!" Dugan quickly lead the way into the air shaft, followed closely by Patch and Pitts squad.

Kurosaki denonated the bombs himself, feeling an intense satisfaction that he had not felt before. The tunnels collapse, blocking most of the horde from the squad's position. Alas, they had three casualties: Squad leader of first squad, the German of first squad, and the funny-talkative guy of the third.

"It worked, the tunnels have collapsed" Kurosaki concluded. Dugan gave the order to go up the air shaft.
"Second squad, lets get out of here! Quinn, you go first, I'll go in the middle, and Lippa will go last."

Ishizawa smashed the creatures scrawny limb repeatedly, but the creature seemed to be covered in some sort of exoskeletal armour because his strikes bounced off harmlessly. "Help me out here guys" he shouted back to Mongo and Monks who came running down to help Johnson and Ishizawa freeing O'Brien from the iron grip. O'Brien started panicking and only with the marines united efforts they managed to pull him clear - A short burst from Ishizawa through the fence struck the creature square in the chest and it crumpled up and fell, completely limp into the darkness below.
With one final effort to break from his fellow Marines, O'Brien found himself flying forward and face planting himself into the floor at a great rate of speed. Looking up he saw CPL Ishizawa standing over him and firing his pulse rifle through the safety fence and blowing away the alien that had him pinned. 

"WAY TO GO CPL!  NAIL THAT FUCKER!!!"  O'Brien shouted with a manic grin splitting his face. 

  CPL Ishizawa

Reloading his VP-70 with a fresh mag, he reholstered it as he picked up his fallen M42A.  Seeing that his ghille suit was torn to shreds at the back and hanging in piecies he quickly whipped out his M24 Tactical Knife and a few quick slashes across the remaining seams and joins, Obi ripped the rest of it off and cast it aside.   Looking around quickly he saw his favourite floppy bush hat on the floor.    Alright!  That bastard didn't get it after all! 

Just as O'Brien was reaching down to get it, a sudden thunderclap of a loud explosion quickly followed by a pressure wave resounded down the passageway.  The concussion slammed him to the floor once again as a piercing scream cried out and just as quickly ended.  Gingerly picking himself up he looked around at the other Marines in his squad as they struggled to their feet.  Wait, wheres Mongo?  Realisation quickly sunk in.  "Oh fuck, Mongo's down, Mongo is down."



Getting up on a knee and rifle into his shoulder O'Brien went to rapid fire as much as a sniper rifle could as those things where still coming up the lift shaft.  Keeping the covering fire up he addressed the remainder of 3rd Sqd,  " I really think its time we got the hell out of Dodge guys!"

O'brien fired three shots in rapid succession down the shaft - The Aliens where too close to use his scope effectively so he aimed over the barrel. The result was disappointing and his rounds missed the crawling, jumping and climbing creatures. More and more came from the darkness below - With a shiver he tought of Mongo who had fell into that crawling, snaking pit of death below.

"Fall back! Fall back! Get to the shaft. Move it Marines!" Dirk shouted as the hord of creatures advanced.


Fireing his pulse rifle in short controled bursts Dirk half ran half stumbled as quickly as he could. As he fired into the hord he could hear the high pitched screams come from them as they fell.

The charges exploded, bringing the tunnel down and blocking the creatures advance. Spitting the grit that had gotten into his mouth he looked at his squad with a grin. Then seeing the fallen Marines his face went hard again.

"Ok 4th. We've made it this far. Lets keep it together and the first rounds on me when we get out of here. Follow me." He said.


Dirk made his way to the shaft, watching in all directions for movement.

Simovic lead the way into the airshaft still feeling waves of regret for the death of Steiner. Though he knew if he hadn't fired the marine would have been torn to pieces anyway. He angled his shoulder torch forward and also pulled down his eyepiece. He flicked on the platoon comms "Stay focused marines, we ain't out of this yet, if those things keep coming up the elevator shaft fire some grenades down there, providing you won't blow yourself up in the process".



He then tried to access Lt Andersons channel. "Anderson can you bring up some floor plans to the base, tell us where we're heading? Also what are Mongo's vital signs, is he still alive, over?"



He hoped so, the marine was like the platoon joker and had been a lucky charm to them since he arrived, if he was dead maybe their good luck had also died with him..

Morse's mouth was dry. He knew what was going on around him, and he was still keeping a level head... to an extent. He wasn't sure exactly what was going on with the other squads, but on the technicality that wasn't his problem, since he was with "4th Support" so unless they were ordered to give assistance then it wasn't his problem. They'd blown the hallway and were now in some air shaft and Morse was the rear guard again.

Where the hell are we going Sergeant?! Morse yelled. His M41A was at 66 rounds.  He was moving in reverse in the air vent and was seriously thinking that they had no idea where they were going this time.

patch knew he had been lucky, very fucking lucky, those things were god damn killing machines, only multiple direct hits brought them down.
as he scurried into the air duct behind the sarge he pulled out his motion tracker again and proceeded to scan the tunnels ahead.

"can anyone upload me a god damn schematic of this place? we gotta find a way back to the surface for fucks sake!" patch yelled over all the noise and gunfire.

Kurosaki slung his rifle and jumped into the shaft. He began to crawl on his hands and knees towards safety.

A layer of cold sweat lay over Jacob's body - caused by the heady mix of adrenaline and fear. As he crawled along in the airshaft.

'If they find us in here then we're dead men' he thought to himself over and over again - it wasnt helping things.

Still, he was grimly plodding forward, hearing Morse's question he commed back

"Way I see it - we follow the person at the front of this line and hope for the best, we're losing marines quickly - I think hope is all we have at the moment."

He knew it was a part of his job to build morale, but his men weren't stupid - they knew that bad stuff was going down - why play them for idiots? Still, maybe he didnt need to be so negative...

"However, we're marines - we're trained, resourceful, tough as nails and I'm damn sure that we can hold these weird bastards off. So when I say hope is all we have, I have a LOT of hope in me marine."

Feeling satisfied that he'd redeemed his negative outlook a bit, Jacob set his eyes forward...and crawled - it was all he good do, along with keep an eye and an ear open for the enemy.

Erik followed his Cpl in the air shaft. The air was cold and he couldn't see but the glow shining around from each marine's shoulder lamps. He had unhook the Smartgun and the supporting arm as they would have been hard to fit and manuever with in the air shaft. It would have slowed his squad down to much. He had kept the armored targetting vest tho for some protection and as a little comfort to his mind.

He had drawn his VP-70 and was scurrying on his hands and knees, with it in his right hand. It hardness giving him some assurance. He had checked the chamber and had a full load in the mag. With the little gun he thought it would take a whole mag to stop just one of those things.

With his left he held the tracker and every so often he would swing it in a big sweep.

"Cpl Pitt, Do we have any backup up on top? Maybe they should secure the top of the elevator shaft. Set up claymores and demo charges before everyone gets into hot water, what you think? Also anyone have a spare shoulder weapon?"

A split second later a prolonged panicked scream of anguish pierced the intercom which was cut short moments later. "Fuck! Mongo fell into the shaft!" Ishizawa screamed in shock, but were still holding together as he was heard continuing firing down the shaft with his gun.
These news brought to Johnson a new wave of fear and adrenaline. Coupled with the death of Heart and Steiner, Johnson stopped firing for a brief moment. But almost instantly with trembling hands he raised his Pulse Rifle and opened up on the monsters crawling up the tunnel and screaming every sort of profanity at them. "Die you mother fuckers! Eat this! Kill my friends! I kill you!" He screamed over and over at them. His '41 was smoking and the barrel began to glow from the constant heat. "Go back to Hell and stay there!"

Shaking his head in digust at his shooting, Obi emptied the rest of his magazine down the shaft.  He hit the mag release letting it drop to the floor and quickly slammed another one home into the rifle.  Taking position next to Johnson he settled down and started to pick his targets with care and began squeezing off deliberate shots.




He smiled grimly as Johnson maintained his murderous barrage next to him while calling the aliens all the fuckers under the sun.  "Thats right you unholy sons of bitches take that!"  Obi taunted the creatures as he lined up his Optic sight and squeezed the trigger.  Breathe, line up, take up the trigger pressure, squeeze, bang, shift targets. 

As the two Marines continued to hold the line, O'Brien realised that the things were still trying to come up. Fuck, we can't hold out here forever.  "CPL Ishizawa, what are your orders?  Those things are still coming!

Morse kept his back petal pacing as he listened to the sergeants moral boosting attempt. Unfortunately he was probably talking to the only marine that didn't give a damn about that "heart of the volunteer" crap. He rolled his eyes as he heard it.
"I'm damn sure we can hold him"
That part got to him. He had a bit of a sarcastic laugh as he thought "Cus that's been workin so well. Holdin back a flood a bugs." "Good enough i figure" Morse said stumbling a bit in his backward stepping. He caught himself and continued

< Tag Apachetear

He then directed to Erik, he couldn't tell where he was since he was the one in back, but he figured Erik was somewhere in the middle. And who do you figure's gonna do that, the lieutenant, the lawyer, or the science consultant? Your in "4th Support" Morse saying again, making reference to the nickname he had given to his squad given their usual assignments. "We are the back up, and now we're doin just that.... backin up." Morse said, laughing a bit afterward.

< Tag Raider

He was a realist, and he remembered that they went in with 4 squads and the only people who could help them up there, would be outside and not know how to do a damn thing. He just kept his light panning down the back.

"Alright Morse, I see your point. Just get me back up there and a new Smartgun then" Erik replied.


He kept following the Marine in front of him.
Checking his motion tracker every couple of steps.
He was a good shot with his pistol and in the cramped quarters he could bring it to bear quickly. It was just slightly under powered when compared to the M41A pulse rifle or Smartgun. Under powered and lacking in alot of rounds, he'd have to take good aim instead of just spraying the target. He'd have to look for vulnerable spots and be darn quick about it too.

"Hey anyone remember any weak spots they fired on them things that quick killed any of them"?
