The tram shuddered to a halt at the ruins. "First floor, lingerie, hats and giant bug monsters." Ivix grumbled, pulling his shotgun from beneath his coat. "Alright everyone, we're headed underground. Get your stuff together and let's get moving.

Draining his water, Ilste primed his weapon and affixed his enviro-suit's mask. "I don't suppose there's a food court is there?" Ilste quipped, scanning the surrounding terrain for any possible threats. Seeing nothing, he began leading the group to the nearest tunnel entrance. Heat was shimmering off of the sandstone walls around them, providing the illusion of sudden movement to further the groups paranoia.
Ilste (Sal). Coffee Status: Low. Expect mild withdrawal symptoms.

Hats?  I want a hat!  I think we would look dashing in a hat!
I like hats!
He was being sarcastic, idiot.  Not to mention I don't think anyone produces an actual hat that would fit our head.  Geth at not known for their fashion sense.
I think I just thought of a million credit idea!  Geth fashion wear!
I would be your first customer.
You are him you moron.  Now shut up you two, remember, bugs to kill?

"When we find the leader of this bug hive, I am turning their carapace into a hat."  Juggernaut said as he lumbered off the tram and onto the platform.  He quickly switched to hunter vision, scanning the immediate area for any potential threats that may have been lurking behind walls or in ventilation shafts nearby.  "Come out come out wherever you are."

Tobias followed behind the pack, his heart racing a mile a second.  "Is that thing always so eager to kill everything in sight?"

Grinning at the pirate's discomfort, Ilste whispers into Tobias' ear, "Hope so. Would be a problem elsewhere. Here? Survival trait."

The Devourer watched from the top of a building. The prey had definitely grown in strength.

Good. Came the Lifegiver's voice. Strong prey will only serve to strengthen the hive. Ready your brothers, cull the weak. Herd them to the feeding grounds.

Sending acknowledgement through the Mind, the devourer took off, readying itself for the incoming feast.


"Anyone get the feeling we're being watched?" one of the soldiers asked, fear in his voice.

"Stow it Mendez!" A Turian barked. "Keep your mouth shut and cover the civvies. We have a Giant Geth, a SPECTRE, AND a Krogan. This is a bug hunt, nothing more."

"We are being watched," Flanagan said nodding at the cameras back at the tram, "A good portion of the ruins is covered by the cameras so we could keep an eye on things back inside.  The girls we left behind will still be able to see us for a bit."

"I do not think that was what the frightened meatbag was referring to."  Juggernaut began as Flanagan pointed out the cameras.  "His pheromone levels indicate that he is, as you humans say, "scared like a little b!tch.""

Sick burn!
Perhaps we should bring him back to the Trafalgar for third degree treatment.
The core of the star Sol burns at over 15 million kelvin.

(Tis a sad day when I have to resort to these tactics to use profane language.)

Mendez flinched as some stones fell from the top of a building. He yelled as he fired madly at the noise.

"Mendez! Stop that ****!" Ivix yelled, his eyes darting from side to side. "We're not alone here. I just picked something up on my motion tracker."



The Devourers filled the air with the low buzz of their wings as they swooped down towards the group. Their carapaces were thinner to allow flight, but their speed still made them difficult to hit. They released a high pitched roar as they swooped down, slicing several soldiers into pieces and carrying off a few more.

"Open fire!" yelled the Quarian at the head of the group.

Juggernaut saw the fliers before they even entered the room.  And so his minigun was primed to attack.

'Bout damn time!
Their primitive weapons will be ineffective against our armor, but their speed is impressive.
Good thing we bought a friggen anti aircraft gun!  Hey stupid!  Full power to the targeting systems!
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...There they are a standing in a.....Oh fine, optimizing targeting protocols.

"Try not to defecate yourselves, meatbags."  Juggernaut shouted as he snapped back on the trigger of his weapon.  The barrel revved up, and a moment later the air was blanketed in super heated plasma rounds.  The bugs may have been moving fast enough to give his targeting systems trouble, but with the sheer amount of ammunition he was spewing into the air, that hardly mattered.  Their thin carapaces shredded like tissue paper, provided they were unfortunate enough to be in the path of his bullets.

Tobias took a different route.  The bugs were too fast for him to hit with Kara.  Biotics were the wisest choice.  He flung a singularity into the air, drawing in a mass of 6 or so of the flying insects, then detonated it with a warp field that sent them crashing into the walls and ceilings with enough force to reduce them to goo.  He could only hope that the fight ended soon, as he could not sustain this level of biotic usage for long.

"Son of a biтch!" South exclaimed as the fliers swooped down. The others in the group seemed to be handling most of them, but that didn't stop him from being completely terrified. Doing the only logical thing that came to mind, he rolled onto his back and fired his shotgun into any flier that came close. At the moment, his plan seemed to be working as he fired into a flier as it swooped by.

Ilste activated his Inferno module, casting flame as often as it could fire. Numerous creatures shrieked in pain, falling out of the sky as their membranous wings dried and **** under the heat.

Ivix began firing his shotgun at the fliers, and loosing all the biotic energy he could spare, but it was doubtful they could hold against such a large swarm. To his left, he spied what may have once been an ancient transport tunnel, like the subways on Earth.

Prime was having a rip-roaring good time, the drum on his shotgun spinning like a catherine wheel. "Haaa ha ha ha ha!" He roared. "Come on you bastards! Millenium and a half and you bug bastards still got nothing on me!" He grabbed one that flew too low and jumped, the creature's wings lifting him almost 15 feet off the ground. "Wheee!" he yelled as he punched clean through it's belly, dropping from the sky like a rock, crushing three more bugs beneath his mass.

"Everyone! Get belowground!" He heard Ivix yell. "We can't hold out here forever!"

As reluctant as he was to stop dishing out the pain, Prime reluctantly agreed. "The man's right!" He barked as the remaining few marines took the excuse to run for their lives. "Everyone belowground!"

Flanagan fired as deliberately and carefully as he could, but the mass of bugs was damaging his composure.  He heard the order to go below ground, "Ye'll have  no argument from me...but I got questions once we're below ground."

The Mattock ejected a thermal clip, and Flanagan reloaded as quickly as he could, desperately wish he'd had more practice on the gunnery range.  Shooting in a sterile environment was one thing, out here was a completely different matter.  His hands were shaking and every instinct was telling him to run.  Luckily, this time, he could allow himself to listen to it.

"I would have to agree with our Quarian friend here!"  Tobias said as he unleashed a biotic shockwave point blank into the face of a swooping bug.  The force of the blast split the carapace of the insect in two and sent it splattering across the ground.  He began to fight his way into the tunnel.



KILL ALL THE THINGS!
Weapon temperatures are exceeding maximum threshold.  If we do not stop now we are going to warp the barrel.
Hehe...warp is a funny word.  Wwwwwwaaaarrrrp.  Warp.  It's like the sound a fart makes.

Juggernaut stopped firing his mammoth cannon, wafts of heat emanating from its glowing hot barrels.  He extended his forearm towards a mass of bugs, and in an instant, his omnitool glowed an intense white, spewing forth a siege pulse at the insects.  The ball of electricity slammed into the first bug, unleashing a monumental explosion that shredded the surrounding 9 into charred bits of meat and chitin.  Juggernaut moved towards the mouth of the tunnel and stood by the entrance.

"I suggest the squishiest of you go first."

"Yeah! Get going mammals! Me and Tinman will be right behind you!" Prime yelled out, still firing his shotgun. He biotically charged at another bug that was chewing on a marine's corpse, splattering it. "Unless his joints are going to need oiling!" he laughed.

"You heard the big motherfuckers!" Ivix yelled, "Move move move!" He started running for the tunnel, firing at any bug that got too close.
