I wrote this quite a while ago when i got bored and posted it under another name on the wiki, (CorporalWright). Decided i might post it here since i would like to see what people think of it and get some feedback if possible.
Note: This fanfic is based on the map ‘dys_assemble’
Assault on Assemble
//Destroy or Capture Corporate Data-Stores in Plant Assmeble
//Assault Group Advised
//Corporal Wright to Take Command of Operation
“Ok, here’s the new contract. We’ve got an anonymous payer wanting the Corporations data stores destroyed or ‘copied’; to get to them we have to first shut down the production line then use the built in laser to destroy their bulkhead and grant us access to the data stores. If you want out I advise you go now.” Grunted Corporal Wright., there was no emotion in his voice as he spoke, yet it was enough to make people think twice before answering back.,
Wright was wearing the bulky armour commonly associated with those in the heavy class. The assault group of 16 soldiers around him were a mixture of the classes, with several other heavies and the rest either lights with cyberdecks and stealth armour or mediums with mediplants. The group didn’t waver at Wrights’ speech, they had volunteered for this mission for the payment and were hardly going to back down now, and it didn’t help that Wrights Ion Cannon was fully charged and aiming at their feet.
“Alright ladies, classic assault technique, Xion, take Alpha Squad and head off to the far left flank; wait until the shooting starts before opening fire.” Four Mediums all wielding MK Rifles sprinted away from the group. “Squad Bravo will be headed by Marcus, they’ll take the right flank and Squad Charlie will be headed by Dreadnought.” Turning to another heavy hefting a Basilisk, he continued, “You’ll take the left flank.” Squad Delta will be following me, we’ll take the center route, luckily the Corp’s haven’t been paying attention and we’ve managed to open the doors without them realising.”
Without pausing, the remaining group split up into smaller groups of four each headed by at least one heavy. Walking across the steel grates that covered the floor, Wright and his squad split off from Marcus’s squad and jumped down the ladder, landing heavily with a loud thud. Two Lights and a Medium followed suit and landed next to the Corporal. As they entered the anti-chamber and huddled round the door Wright activated the radio built into his suit, “Squads Bravo and Charlie, open fire when you hear the explosion. Sniper’s, wait several seconds before letting rip”“
Raising his fist Wright activated a built in slot on his suit and a Spider-Grenade in its ball form slid out into his hand. “Remember, Heavies go first and the Rest spread out behind. Watch your fire and keep your scopes clean.”
The suit’s the Punk’s were wearing consisted of a helmet with a Head’s up Display (HUD) and several of the soldiers had activated a TAC scanner, which received the signals of the IFF of all soldiers within its range. To Wright’s luck, there was only a small contingent of twelve soldiers guarding the JIP for the production line. And a group of 5 of them had gathered not too far from the door that Wright and his squad were hiding behind.
Wright nodded to a Medium in front of holding an EMP grenade with the Assault Rifle slung over his back. “Specter, open the door, wait till the Spider his moving before priming and throw it after the explosion.” Specter nodded and crouched opening the door into the large hall. Before the doors had even fully opened Wright launched the Spider which unfurled in mid-air and landed neatly on the ground, quickly spinning it locked onto the enemy’s IFF and scuttled through the door.
What happened next only lasted a dozen seconds or so. Specter primed the grenade as Wright flicked on the Thermal Vision implanted into his suit, the red light giving his eyes a sinister look. A clearly audible “What the Hec-” sounded from the hall as the Spider exploded, sending shrapnel flying in all directions and severely injuring most of the group. Milliseconds after that Specters EMP grenade flew through the door and detonated in mid air causing all suits caught within the blast radius to shutdown temporarily, adding to the confusion.
Following Specters grenade was Wright who charged forward with his Ion Cannon, expertly he aimed and fired, taking two soldiers out at the same time, their bodies disintegrating when the energy beam hit them. Specter followed suit firing in short bursts and taking the last three out in quick head shots.
While this was happening Flak’s squad filtered from the right flank, taking the high route nad jumping down to stick next the far right wall, Flak’s Minigun let rip, showering a stunned heavy in bullets, quickly polished off by a well placed grenade fired by a Grenade Launcher from a Medium in his squad. Dreadnought’s group came from the left flank, Dreadnought wielding a Basilisk, firing shrapnel at the last Heavy and Medium. From his position he was able to make sure he didn’t accidentally hit the two lights in his group who charged forwards stealthed. Nearing the heavies they quickly split up and launched several double-barrelled blasts into the faces of the Corps, obliterating the helmets and the heads they failed to protect.
Unfortunately the Medium Corp had a Cortex Bomb built into his suit and it activated as he fell, the beeping it emitted sounding the drums of doom. “Get Clear!” yelled Dreadnought through his radio as he saw the Heavy outlined in a flashing yellow square, warning of a active Cortex Bomb. Within seconds the fallen Heavy’s body exploded sending the two lights unfortunate to be in proximity to it flying. In the resulting confusion the Alpha Squad had taken the chance to quickly take out the four remaining Medium Corporates.
“I want Mediplant’s ASAP,” barked Wright as he moved into a position to guard the access ramp from where the rest of the Corps could access the hall, “Xion, get the hell down here and shut down the production line! Flak, Your squads with mine, cover the access ramp; Xion get your squad around the JIP and protect Xion, and get those Lights healed up, I don’t want any deaths in this mission. The Lights had survived the explosion but barely, moving into a position around the JIP they allowed several Mediums to use their Mediplants to patch them up.
As expected, the Corp’s reinforcements quickly arrived and started charging up the ramp. Stealth and Cold suits were useless, as the waiting Squad’s showered the ramp with bullets and grenades, slaughtering the half a dozen reinforcements. “Xion, how much longer is it going to take?” Said Flak as he moved into cover, reloading his minigun.
“Just Decrypting it now Sir.” Said Xion, quickly followed by the flickering of the lights and a grinding noise from below the floor. “Dreadnought, your squad’s too stay behind and guard the JIP in case someone skips past us.”
As Conners’ squad took positions around the JIP the rest of the Assault group moved down the ramp and moved into the Laser room. “Xion take your squad and position around the inside of the room, shoot down anyone climbing up. Flak, your squads top position themselves on the stairs, my group will take the JIP.”
It wasn’t long before the Corps tried climbing the stairs to take out the JIP at the top of the stairs, however they were quickly taken out by the Snipers, those that made it past had to deal with a minigun or several Grenade launchers and Tesla rifles.
Specter was watching as a Light rushed through cyberspace and into a fire-walled room; flicking up a Ice – Breaker program he attempted to take the Ice wall down. However he suddenly fell back, “You OK Victor?” asked Specter, helping him to his feet.
“Bloody Green-Ice,” grunted Victor.
“I’ll take over, get your strength back and join the others.”
Shortly after entering Cyberspace Specter noticed a Corp Decker inspecting the Ice-Wall; it wasn’t too much trouble for Specter as he launched himself through the air/space and fired off several Hitscan attacks, quickly taking the Corporate out. Moving close to the Ice-Wall, but making sure not to touch it, Specter quickly activated a Scanning program, which deactivated the Green-Ice effect. Next activating a Wedge Program since they wouldn’t need to protect it once activated Specter pushed through the Ice-Wall and, after decrypting the laser controls, activated it.
Several seconds later the Laser in the center of the room lowered and levelled at the wall, firing and disintegrating a path for the Punks and obliterating a Corp unfortunate enough to be standing in-front of the laser as it fired.
“Conner, the path is clear, you and your squad catch up and regroup with us in the tunnel.” Said Wright into the radio.
“Roger that, we’re moving up now,” came the reply.
The three squads moved from the top of the laser room down to the far bottom and moved into the tunnel created by the laser. Once they had regrouped in the tunnel and let those injured be healed by those with Mediplants, they advanced as a single unit; Heavies in-front with Lights and Mediums behind them.
“Ok, good job on the Laser but we’ve still got the hardest part yet to do.” Said Wright as he addressed them, “Ok, I want this to be nice and simple; Specter, you’re our best decker, I want you to get into the JIP and open up the data-stores, we’ll destroy them then EVAC. Ok, similar plan to the first one, Sniper Squad take the balcony and lay down covering fire. Flak take your squad left flank, Dreadnought yours to take the Right flank. I’ll take my squad and jump down from the balcony. I want this to be fast and quick, any sustained firefight will be very dangerous.”
Once again Wright primed a Spider grenade and lobbed it over the balcony, using its detonation to confuse the enemy and synchronise their attacks. The Spider quickly locked onto a Heavy’s IFF and scuttled towards it, exploding on contact.
Wrights group jumped over the balcony and charged forwards at the sound of the explosion, Wrights’ Ion Cannon firing and vaporising the stunned Heavy. Flak’s and Conner’s squads simultaneously appeared round the corners and charged up the stairs, firing on the few remaining guards.
Within seconds the room was clear of hostile forces, “Not putting up much of a fight are they?” joked Specter as he entered the JIP and started to work on opening the data-stores. “No they aren’t are they…” said Wright as he stopped moving and something dawned on him.
“All squads, prepare for heavy incoming!” Yelled Wright as he charged to the front. The glass screen protecting them wasn’t much use if they used grenade launchers or rockets, and almost as if they had read his mind, three heavies suddenly appeared, all three of them wielding Rocket Launchers.
“Everyone Down!” The unit quickly ducked behind the glass screen to cover from the three rockets that were fired around the sides. In a way Wright and Flak both saved the Light and Medium’s lives; they had both taken each side and therefore took most of the damage, sparing what would have been fatal damage to the others. “Sniper’s, take them out,” grunted Wright heavily as he fell against the wall, bleeding heavily.
“Sir, all data-stores are now open,” said Specter over the radio as the three enemy heavies fell down dead. “Good, concentrate on destroying those data-stores, me and Flak will be fine for now.”
“Yeah, I’ll be fine,” said Flak who moved next to Wright to allow Specter who had just come out of the JIP to heal their wounds.
Lining up along the sides of the massive room the Punks levelled their weapons and opened fire on the now exposed Data-Stores, systematically destroying them one by one. As the last Data-Store collapsed the Corporate soldiers that had just arrived on the scene immediately took flight; their job was to protect the Data-Stores and since they had been destroyed they didn’t want to hang around to get killed by the escaping Punks or punished by their bosses for failing them.
“Objective complete Sir, data-stores have been destroyed.” Said Specter, helping Wright and Flak to their feet.
“Good,” replied Wright, flexing his arm that had been dislocated by the explosion, “Contract complete, good job boys, now lets get the hell out of here.”
