- Weapon: Energo-Sword
Within Cybertron’s Underworld
Darkwing and Dreadwind continued to hammer away at one of the demons with their guns. They had successfully mangled the creature’s legs but still it clawed after them. Finally Dreadwind simply snapped and charged at the creature, bringing his guns right up to its head. “Why do you want to kill me so badly? What did I do to deserve this?!?” The creature’s cranium was quickly reduced to molten slag under the point blank assault from the Decepticon.
Darkwing had to pull his partner away from the smoldering corpse to get him to stop firing. “Alright Dread, I think you got him. Now we just have to worry about the other monsters coming to eat us.” The two fliers backed up against the tunnel wall and began pouring fire into another of the creatures as it stalked closer to them.
Thunderwing slammed his fist into the face of the monster that had initially attacked him. It was a solid hit on the beast and knocked its head back against the wall, hard, but it didn’t seem to do any real damage to it. It lashed back out at him with its razor sharp claws, but his carapace was able to absorb or deflect most of the blow. He moved quickly to grab its wrists before it could lash out at him again.
The two mechs struggled with each other for a few seconds, pushing back and forth against each other. Finally Thunderwing lashed out with the corrosive laser mounted on his head, aiming for the other being’s optics. The beam briefly touched one of the optics, drawing its attention away from the back and forth between himself and the Decepticon. It was enough for Thunderwing to gain an edge over the monster and fling him up and over himself, slamming the demon face first into the ground. Drawing his laser rifle he fired a handful of rounds into the monster’s head to put it down for good.
His attention was drawn to the cry of pain from Blackwind. He looked over to see one closing in on her, along with other creatures attempting to cut the fliers off from Skullcruncher and himself. A blast from his cyclone cannon sent the demon staggering back as he charged forward. He stopped in front of Blackwind, one hand pushing her back while the other continued firing. “Fliers, get between Skullcruncher and myself. They are attempting to break us up into smaller groups that can be overwhelmed by numbers.” Darkwing and Dreadwind began slinking along the wall to join the other Decepticons, a barrage of fire covering their retreat.
The Decepticon frowned at Wierdwolf’s reply to his message. He would have to make sure he remained closer to the main group in the future. Thunderwing had been reluctant to unleash Soundwave’s minions. While Beastbox and Overkill were skilled fighters neither of them was known for subtlety or precision. He would rather not suffer from a cave in or alerting others to their presence here, but it seemed he had little choice at this point. “Skullcruncher, unleash Beastbox and Overkill. With their help we may be able to put a quick end to this battle.
