You hurry back, and get as far as the herbal room.
You try some first aid on your fallen squadmate. Your feat fails, and private Scratch dies permanently
Enraged, you draw your OTC and try to rush into a corridor, but you find your path is obstructed.
"We're finishing off the remaining hostiles and will support your squad once we're done here, general Alonso."
Private Falk (Engineer)
The creature is still moving! You shoot its body, but your rifle doesn't appear powerful enough.
You pick op Scratch's heavy laser and OTC and cover your commander's back.
Private Zupponn (Berserker)
You chase after the creature, but apparently it's faster than you.
Private Silverdream (Flamer)
You make sure nothing is stalking up to private lawmaster.
The lab vermin keep swarming the infected pilot, but he stands his ground.
At least, until the special ops trooper shoots him in the face.
The creature tries to charge past commander Thesson, but falls to the OTC.
The other is still alive!
With a feat of inhuman strength, he bashes straight through the door...
The heavy doesn't hesitate, holding him back but not quite destroying his enemy with a hail of minigun fire.
The final Assyrian decides to die like one and runs out of the trenches, opening fire. A heavy gets it.
Cythe tries to take out the Assyrian, but damage fails him.
You try to take out the mecha pilot, which isn't such a bad idea. It's a difficult shot though, and you miss.
The best cover you can find and reach is this tree.
The heavy keeps shooting the mutated trooper in the face, but he just doesn't go down.
Alonso and the heavy get to cover behind the Hyena.
"Requesting immediate back-up! I've lost my frame and the infidels are fast upon us, we require armour!"
"Very well, reinforcements inbound. Look to the skies, commander."
The pilot climbs out of the hatch.
The inquistadore secures two burst missiles before getting into cover. He knows how to set them off, so he can use them in a similar fashion to grenades.
The special ops sprints to the side of the field with inhuman speed.
It puts him in range of the heavy blasting his pal, who he proceeds to shoot in the back of the head.
The rest of the squad advance. The Panzerfausts attempt to blast the fallen Hyena frame while a Zerreiser laser rifle is aimed at the sniper.
Kalvinator is saved by his cover, but the tree is destroyed.
The Panzerfausts blow up the Hyena's legs.
Then, the Schattenläufer takes his turn.
A combination of good accuracy and wicked damage rolls rips apart both Cythe as Kalvin
The dice left no room for interpretation.
This also means the mech is now close enough for Alonso and his men to try and avenge them, however.
The final heavy's head is ripped off by a Zerreiser on response duty before he can get the shot off. Alonso's blaster is of course not fitted to shoot armour.
The pilot gets a perfect throw! The explosion is somehow too weak to kill her, but it sends the pilot flying out of the hatch.
She takes the falling damage...
And then gets crushed to a pulp by the uncontrolled mech.
From the skies, the promised armoured support is dropped in. (reinforcement for Silent)
