Chapter 215 Awesome! (Part one)
On the battlefield, Huang He was dumbfounded . He had been hit in the leg and fell; it wasn’t a fatal wound and didn’t get him eliminated, but then he got hit with a headshot on his helmet . When the system reminded him that he was eliminated, he was in a daze . Then he yelled at his comrades, “Run!”
Seeing he was eliminated, his teammates had to run, or they would be wiped out .
Toward the direction of the sniper Xu Cheng, Huang He gave a thumbs-up in admiration!
After the clip was played back, it showed Huang He was running behind the tight shield made up of his teammates, giving Xu Cheng no chance to hit him; but in the video, Huang He fell with one shot and then his head was shot right after .
Commander Xie watched it over and over for a long while with narrowed eyes and then asked the technician, “Did Xu Cheng shoot him?”
The technician nodded . “Yes . From Xu Cheng’s screen, I saw him fire twice . ”
Commander Xie, Old Biao, and Commander Zhou asked immediately, “Did the camera catch the details?”
The technician said, “It’s difficult . Our cameras are not so advanced that they can capture the bullet trail . But I can do a simulation analysis . ”
The three commanders waited .
Then the technician shook his head . “I think it’s a bit ridiculous but it’s the only explanation . ”
Commander Xie said, “Speak your mind . Show us your expertise . ”
The technician nodded . “If it happened as I describe, then no one would dare to claim first place if Xu Cheng is second place in marksmanship . ”
Commander Zhou said, “Get to the point . Tell us how Huang He fell . ”
The technician said, “Here’s what I think happened . The tall soldiers Zhou Long, Wang Qi, Zhang Lu, and Mo Lei was shielding Huang He . They are about 6 feet, which is tall enough to cover Huang He who is about 5 feet 6 inches, but not completely . ”
Pointing at the big screen, he said, “Look, Huang He fell because he was shot in the leg . According to my analysis, Xu Cheng did it on purpose; I think he was trying to show us his terrifying marksmanship skills . The four taller soldiers could cover Huang He’s top half but not his legs . The taller soldiers have longer legs and thus cover more ground with each step, and Huang He has to move his legs more frequently to catch up with them . As the four taller soldiers took nine steps, Huang He had to take eleven steps to remain behind them . So, even though the five of them remained together, Huang He had to take two more steps than the others, thus showing his legs from behind the legs of the taller soldiers . That was the biggest hole in their defense!”
The three commanders blurted out, “That’s impossible!”
The technician said, “This is what I think happened . It can explain why Huang He got shot in his calf . It means that Xu Cheng had purposely aimed at the calf that was exposed from behind the longer legs of the taller soldiers . When Huang He fell, the other four couldn’t stop running immediately and thus left Huang He on the ground exposed to the sniper who then shot his head . ”
The three commanders were stunned .
Commander Zhou shook his head . “This is absolutely impossible . How much concentration would he need to make that shot? Don’t forget that they were running at full speed, making it more difficult to aim than flash sniping Ah’Pao . Within the dense movements of the four pairs of legs, to find Huang He’s legs, he had to move his scope as fast as the running speed; meanwhile, he had to concentrate and predict the next moves of their steps . It’s no less difficult than grabbing chestnuts from fire or finding bacteria with a pair of reading glasses . It’s impossible . ”

Old Biao also nodded . “He just got lucky . ”
Commander Xie said, “I think so, too . ”
The technician smiled . “Commanders, you neglected one point . ”
When they looked up at him in puzzlement, the technician said, “Why didn’t Xu Cheng fire the first moment they dashed out? The speed of his fingers could have taken them out just as he did with Ah’Pao . But he didn’t fire, which meant that his target wasn’t the four taller soldiers . With his marksmanship, he could have eliminated one tall soldier in two seconds and thus eliminated all the taller soldiers blocking his scope in eight seconds . But he had been aiming and waiting for a chance to get Huang He . It shows he was confident that he could do what I had just described, and he did it . Do you still think it was a lucky shot?”
The three commanders’ jaws fell as their minds tried to process this unthinkable fact .
The technician was right; Xu Cheng had indeed done what the technician described because he got the rhythm caught by the ultrasonic wave .
He had been waiting for Huang He’s leg to leave the cover of the the longer legs of his four teammates . As a shorter guy, Huang He had to take more steps to cover the same distance that a taller guy covered with 20 steps . With more frequent movements of his legs than his teammates, it gave Xu Cheng a chance to shoot at him .
It was why Huang He gave him the thumbs-up when he was eliminated; he admitted defeat with admiration for his enemy!
As he lay on the ground waiting for the staff to take him away through the underground passage, he saw the soldiers from the 13th MR dash over . They were about to shoot at him but then they stopped as they saw he had torn off the badge from his sleeve, which meant he had been eliminated . They looked around to see if anyone else were left in the area .
At this moment, lying on the ground, Huang He heard five sniper shots . After that, the soldiers of the 13rd MR fell into an uproar as five of their soldiers dropped from headshots .
The captain of the 13th MR yelled at his team, “Snipers! Take cover!”
The ten soldiers scrambled to take cover behind big trees, just as Huang He and his team had done . Huang He hoped the staff would let him witness more terrifying shots of the sniper before they took him away; he wanted to see if the sniper had just been lucky or was truly a terrifying shooter .
Leaning on a big tree, the captain of the 13th MR saw Huang He grin at him from the ground and found his smile very creepy .
“Captain, even Huang He was eliminated . I’m sure there is a team from one of the top 10 MRs around us,” one of the 13th MR soldiers said to their captain .
The captain didn’t reply but looked at Huang He who lay dead in the distance; he found Huang He’s smile very disturbing . Soon, some staff came out from underground to take away the eliminated soldiers . Huang He said to them before he was taken away, “Please wait a minute here; I think some of these guys will be eliminated soon . Just wait underground and you’ll see . ”
Hearing his words, the captain of the 13th MR became angry; he asked his comrades, “Who has a smoke grenade? Toss it out and block the sniper’s vision so that we can run . ”
The soldier who had a smoke grenade on him nodded and tossed it toward the clearing in the direction of the sniper . Soon, the forest was filled with smoke and no one could see anything around him .
The captain of the 13th MR waved his hand . “Go!”
But, the moment he stepped out, Xu Cheng fired .
In the smoke, Huang He saw a figure falling to the ground, who he recognized to be the captain of the 13th MR . Huang He only blurted out one word, “Awesome!”
