As the shockwave from the Desperation Attack dispersed, a deep purple sniper hiding amidst an abandoned construction site stepped out of his cover. Aiming directly at the Unival Champion he flicked on the matching colored laser on his rifle and smirked.
“Thanks for standing still, chump!” Royal Ranger said under his breath. The Champion was soon given a bright red highlight making him visible to everyone and indicating he was now an Acquired Target. "He’s marked! Light him up!" Royal yelled as he and everyone available opened fire. This boss had given them a hell of a time, but at this moment they had him dead to rights. At least, that’s what the Crusader Marksman though. Yet even with the increase in damage The Champion still remained around 70% health. They weren’t even able to focus on him for long as he soon released another wave of drones to harass them. All the while their numbers continued to drop drastically. A quick sweep of the field showed that nearly half of their fighting force was gone!
“Come to Bunkuko. We’ll get together. Have a big raid.” The ranger growled as he moved back into cover to reload his weapon. Of course they were losing. Most of the people here were under leveled, they had no information on this boss prior, and their deputy wasn’t exactly coming up with a strategy. As he ripped the depleted battery pack from his rifle, he began questioning why none of the captains had bothered to show. Was this fight truly beneath them? Or had they realized even they couldn’t defeat this foe? No matter the answer it would have been preferable for them to have at least said something. The more he realized the futility of the situation, the more his frustrations continued to build. His hands began to tremble as he loaded the fresh battery pack into his rifle. He had to calm down. A sniper without a steady aim is practically useless. Knowing his position wasn’t compromised, Royal decided to take a moment to clear his head. They had to come up with something before they got wiped.
”Okay. Everything he does is triggered in someway making his attack pattern pretty simple, but his endurance allows for him to be predictable. Even when we hit him with all we got it does almost nothing, yet he can frag us with a single hit. If only we could redirect that power at him… Hang on.
“Hey, Saff!” Royal called out to the deputy over the team chat. With an idea in his head a renewed focus put the sniper right back in the game. Simultaneously he leaned out of cover to take out the drones as instructed while running his idea passed her. “Do you think there’s a way we can use this guy’s aggro against him? Maybe get him to call an orbital strike on himself or trigger a drone to blind him? Two on South side.” With of pull of the trigger he the drones he had just called out to pieces.
“It’s gotta be worth a shot, right? I mean what’s the worst that could happen? We die faster? Two going to healer.” Royal let off another shot bringing down another pair of black drone as it attempted to ambush one of the few healers left.
