Geosynchronous orbit.

36000 kilometers away from the surface of the earth was a zone devoid of life.

Steel, plastic, and unexploded rockets floated around in the quiet space. Among the debris was an aircraft carrier-sized space station.

The God's Cane.

It was completed in 2025 and was continually refined throughout the century to become the massive giant it was today. It turned from a sky-based weapon satellite to a sky-based weapon platform.

The dodecagon metal rings kept the tungsten rods in place while they quietly floated beside the space station just like a loaded revolver. An electromagnetic push would allow the tungsten rods weighing several tons to fall at speeds faster than meteors with a horrifying amount of kinetic energy.

Other than the tungsten rods, there were laser arrays and an HPM weapon in front. In the back were wireless electricity receivers powered by the nuclear fusion power plant built on the moon. When power from the moon wasn't available, it could use its foldable solar panel to generate electricity. The eight engines located on the space station could allow the weapon platform to move between the geosynchronous and low-earth orbits to alter its target area.

It was like the Sword of Damocles hovering over the CCCP and PAC's heads.

But ironically, the "suppressive weapon" that cost generations of taxpayer money was conquered by PAC's fearless Space Special Forces with their undying battle spirit at the beginning of the war.

"Power system repaired." Lin Chaoen grinned before he wiped his forehead although he didn't sweat and there was no point in speaking in a vacuum.

It had taken him a month's time and a lot of energy to repair this. Bodies floated in the space station because of the lack of gravity, and all the bodies still looked the same as when they died. Outside of the cockpit, he met a sentry robot still with power. But with his laser sword, he quickly resolved the problem.

"Tungsten rod launch device: functional… This is so troublesome. Whatever, it's fine if I only use it once." Lin Chaoen stared at the warning symbols on the screen and clapped his hands with satisfaction.

There was only one tungsten rod left. The few remaining ones either flew out of the geosynchronous orbit or crashed into the ocean when the space station had fallen. Others were floating in orbit thousands of kilometers away.

The sky-based weapon platform was completely destroyed. When PAC gained control of the platform, the NATO commander immediately initiated self-destruction to turn the space station into a land of death. The sprint to sacrifice wasn't any country's specialty - on the brink of collapse, any creature would subconsciously make the "correct choice."

But unfortunately, the right choice was often made after a series of "wrong choices."

Therefore, creatures are troublesome.

Lin Chaoen shook his head and pressed a few buttons on the touchscreen.

He was fortunate to obtain some of the blueprints of the sky-based weapon to make some of the parts on the ground. While most of the God's Cane was destroyed, it could still perform simple firing actions.

"It can only fire now?"

Lin Chaoen scanned a map of Wanghai City as he looked at the screen with a smile.

In the picture, NAC soldiers were firing at zombies and mutants. Afterward, countless combustion rockets littered the battlefield and engulfed the mutants and zombies at the airport in a blaze.

"Nice fireworks. They already established order… Then could I consider them naturals?"

...

As he watched the flames on the screen with a smile, flickers of images were reflected in his pupils.

The screen moved with the crosshairs targeted at the artillery grounds. Jiang Chen, on the target screen, was pointing at his tablet.

"And you are Harmony."

The screen was focused in the city center onto the giant tree floating in the water. The rumbling meat chuck seemed to possess a tremendous amount of energy.

[Which threat's bigger?]

There was only one bullet in the revolver.

Lin Chaoen watched the battle with a God-eye view as he fell into deep thought.



From the cleansing courtesy of the combustion rockets, the First and Third Corps didn't encounter any resistance before converging at the airstrip in Wanghai Airport.

Although the airstrip was bombed into jagged patches and was now burned pitch-black as a result, it would still be usable after some repairs. Jiang Chen ordered Fallout Shelter 027 to research fighter jet technology earlier and they came up with some initial results.

Wanghai airport was perfect as a base for the NAC fighter jets.

After some restocking, the converged divisions once again headed out. With the support of the soaring rockets, they continued to push towards the city center.

Along the way, they encountered a Thrower, Death Claw, and even a horrific Bug Vehicle, but they didn't stop marching forward.

They pushed forward while destroying mutant nests along the way. When they met a Bug Vehicle or Roshan, electromagnetic cannons took care of the problem. When the mutants swarmed together, they called on support from the artillery. When they found mutant nests hidden among the ruins, they sent the infantry to clear out the area.

They destroyed a total of 91 mutant nests, encountered 371 reproducing mutants and cleared out all irregular life signals from the map.

When they approached the forbidden zone, the radiation level gradually climbed. The soldiers took out their protective suits from the trucks and put on breathing masks to push forward.

Tatata-

Sparks emerged and shells dropped. Feng Yu pulled on the trigger calmly while moving forward under the cover fire of the armored vehicle.

"What's this?"

A soldier stared at the luminescent lake among the ruins in the far distance.

"It's a nuclear crater - I think it's where Death Claw gives birth?" Another soldier's machine gun bullets swept across the zombies while he responded.

"It doesn't look like one - there's water in the crater. I think Death Claw gives birth on land… Fu*k, what is that?"

The mountain made of chunks of red meat was in the middle of the luminescent lake. The dense veins on the surface crossed the meat blob and moved rhythmically with the flow of blood. The bottom was infused into the lake surface just like a massive tree rooted into the ground.

A meat bulb that could light up was hung by a tentacle.

It was just like a light bulb.

"This is team E. We identified an unknown creature, requesting artillery support. I repeat…"

Feng Yu immediately raised his EP. Not letting his guard down, he reported the situation on the frontlines to the command office.

A large amount of static noise filled the radio as a strong interference entered the area. Even the EP, known for its stability, started to blur.

"Signal interference? Or is there still an EMP generator in the area?" The soldier beside Feng Yu reloaded his clip while he muttered.

In the distance, rockets appeared again.

Flames instantly engulfed the meat mountain. The rockets covering the sky not only cleansed the nuclear crater, but they even burned out an isolation zone to the east of the city center made of flames.

But when the smoke began to fade, Feng Yu's eyes widened as he looked at the meat chunks in disbelief. He was so stunned that he forgot to press the trigger.

The mutants all died, but the meat chunks…

They were unscathed.

How could that be possible!

Before he could shout out, the meat chunks began to move.

The light bulb on top began to turn red as it flashed an ominous light. The unknown particles moved restlessly in the air and concentrated together into a crimson ray. Even a cloud began to spread out due to the force the bulb was creating.

It seemed prepared to shoot something!

Almost at the same time, all the electronic equipment in Wanghai experienceced interferencec to some extent.

"Not working anymore?"

Jiang Chen looked sternly at the tablet in his hands as the screen turned into a sparkling white. The connection to the frontlines was suddenly cut off and he didn't even know if the meat mountain was destroyed.

Suddenly, he felt like he was someone's target.

Jiang Chen immediately raised his head and looked in the sky.

A blinding white light flashed in the sky.

Something was dropping down.

36000 kilometers in distance disappeared instantly. The blinding white light dropped down and crashed to the city center's location.

Jiang Chen raised his eyebrows before his eyes widened in disbelief.

For some reason, a word suddenly popped into his head along with an image that seemed familiar.

The weapon that existed in virtual reality.

The God's Cane!
