The Trembling World - Chapter 186
The Trembling World Chapter 186
While residing on this island for these few days, Martial Thunder found his niche within the laboratory and had started modifying the equipment. Martial Thunder was modifying the bony outer shell taken from the Carapace Spitter Variant Zombie. He was able to create four sets of breastplates and six sets of shields with varying sizes.
The breastplate contained a front and back part using rope to tie it together. It was a perfect fit for protecting the chest and the back. Surprisingly, the breastplate was very lightweight. Even wearing clothes underneath the armor, wouldn’t hinder mobility. It protected the most important parts of the chest region so that there wouldn’t be any life-threatening situation when struck.
The four sets of breastplate were obviously given to Liu Gan, Zhang ShengLi, Wang DeCheng, and Han GuangMing. Then those four were also given a shield. The remaining two shields were left to Zhang Hua and Martial Thunder. One of the shields was given to Zhang Hua since he had earned merit in assisting in killing the Carapace Spitter Variant Zombie.
“NinJing City’s police force or riot police group, shouldn’t they have a gun?” Liu Gan asked Zhang Hua.
Compared to these cold weapons like the fire ax, if Liu Gan could find a handgun or assault rifle then that would significantly improve the group’s strength. Even the players that haven’t advanced to level 5 could be useful with a firearm.
“Gun? No gun. Our Cathay country has banned the use of guns. Only the patrolling air and sea amphibious forces possess a handgun. In police stations, you can find tasers. As for real handguns, you wouldn’t find it at any police stations in this country.” Zhang Hua replied.
“The air and sea amphibious forces. Those are the troops that could operate planes flying in the sky and also manage airships that can travel on the ocean right?” Liu Gan asked again. He had a premonition. Within The Trembling World, finding a handgun in this city would be very difficult since the gun had the highest killing power.
“Yes, you are correct.” Zhang Hua nodded.
“Our country has a strict control on guns. So owning a private handgun is a serious crime. If they were discovered, it was the death penalty. No one dares to own a private handgun for that reason,” HuJun and Zhou JingJing added.
After confirming that fact with the local survivors, Liu Gan gave up on the idea of searching for a handgun at the police station by the river shore. The tasers and tranquilizer guns had very limited potential and power so it wasn’t quite worth the risk.
Living on the island these two days had been comfortable and easy, there had been plenty to eat and drink, and even a delicious seafood feast. However, Liu Gan had no plans to stay on the island for too long. The secret in the laboratory had already been uncovered and thoroughly searched through. To continue staying on the island was meaningless as it would burn through their supplies.
If The Trembling World was the real world, there were some aspects that were similar to a game. Just like how San Xing Corporation had a secret laboratory with features that were one-time use. So if other local survivors or players had found it first, then Liu Gan would have lost the opportunity to use it for himself.
Hence, he had no reason to continue living a comfortable and easy life here. He could only continue to push ahead and readily improve his abilities. That way the BUG with his alloy limbs could maintain superiority over others.
The moment Liu Gan announced his plan on leaving the island, almost every member showed a different expression. There were several members that didn’t want to leave the island; the local survivors wanted to stay on the island for at least several more days before departing.
There was too much disorder in in this chaotic world, dangerous situations and traps could occur without warning. Just like the time when they had been chased by the large-scale corpse tide, trapped on the large bridge or ambushed by the tornado. With only a brief moment of respite on the island, they dreaded going back to the nomadic lifestyle of running from place to place.
Aside from that, a large portion of the team members chose to obey Liu Gan’s arrangement and decided to leave the island with him. There were a few members that had wanted to stay behind, but they didn’t voice it out. They realize that if they chose to stay behind on the island, they would be trapped forever.
