Chapter 267 Taking the Lead
After absorbing the blood until they could no longer increase their skill experience points, the Lickers quickly ended Kevin’s life and turned their attention toward the remaining vampire corpse heterozygotes in the hall.
Other than being able to fly, the other attributes of the vampire corpse heterozygotes were far inferior to the Lickers!
Their most powerful infection skill was also ineffective against the Lickers.
This was in addition to Fang Heng’s personal attribute bonus.
It was a one-sided massacre!
A critical hit from the Licker was enough to finish off a vampire corpse heterozygote.
In the blink of an eye, the situation had reversed!

The Lickers had become the hunters. They climbed along the walls and frantically hunted down the fleeing vampire corpse heterozygotes.
Not far away, Chen Yu, who was hiding behind the cover, looked at Zhang Zhe who was beside him.
What a terrifying combat ability…
Just as they had guessed earlier.
Fang Heng did have the ability to control a large number of zombies!
And that included controlling the Lickers!!
They had a feeling that Fang Heng had a similar ability, but they did not expect the latter’s ability to be so powerful!
A high-level creature such as the vampire corpse heterozygote was easily killed by the Lickers.
Even though there were only twelve Lickers. In an elementary game, possessing such an ability was extremely terrifying!
Seeing it with his own eyes, Chen Yu felt extremely shocked.
The Lickers were hunting aggressively for their prey and wiped out the vampire corpse heterozygotes within a short period.
The entire room was filled with sizzling sounds.
After inheriting Fang Heng’s vampire bloodline passive skills, the Lickers and the zombie team were strongly attracted to blood.
They surrounded the corpses of the vampire corpse heterozygotes and kept feeding on them.
This strange scene made Chen Yu, who had been on the battlefield for a long time, feel his scalp go numb.
He suddenly felt that the zombie team controlled by Fang Heng was much more terrifying than the heterozygotes found here.
Fang Heng made a safe hand gesture to the crowd.
He felt that it was a pity.
These vampire corpse heterozygotes were too fragile. They were hit by the Licker’s claws and were either half-dead or half-injured.
Otherwise, he would have the opportunity to bring back a living body for research purposes.
After the crisis was over, Chen Yu and the others heaved a sigh of relief and walked out from behind the cover.
While thinking, Fang Heng controlled the vine zombies to move the rocks at the entrance while he walked to the manual valve at the corner and continued to turn the valve.
The iron chain was pulled up again.
Zhang Zhe walked to the centre of the cave, lowered his head and shone his flashlight downward.
As the platform was gradually pulled up, Zhang Zhe’s face became more and more ghastly.
A loud noise was heard.
The platform was pulled to its limit and snapped into the groove.
“What’s going on?”
Mo Jiawei, who was standing in front of the pit, shouted.
“Where’s the first-generation meteorite?”
Hearing this, Fang Heng’s heart skipped a beat and he quickly walked up to check.
The platform was empty.
Zhang Zhe jumped onto the platform with a sullen face.
He squatted down as if searching for something
Fang Heng noticed that Zhang Zhe picked up a piece of gravel from the ground.
After checking the gravel, Zhang Zhe’s face became even gloomier.
Fang Heng also jumped onto the platform and picked up the gravel at his feet.
It was thumb-sized brown gravel.
(Hint: You have obtained an item-first-generation meteorite fragment.)
Item: First-generation meteorite fragment.
Description: This item has extremely strong radiation, but its interior has been destroyed and lost its vitality.
Chen Yu also realized that the situation was not good and asked, “Captain Zhang, how is
Zhang Zhe’s expression was very ugly. He gritted his teeth and spat out a few words.
“It’s Night Owl!”
“He arrived here earlier than us and destroyed the first-generation meteorite.”
Chen Yu’s face was filled with disbelief, “How is that possible?”
Zhang Zhe did not explain. His face was dark as he put away the rubble, “This is a serious matter. I need to report this to my superiors immediately.”
“No, that’s it?”
Mo Jiawei stood outside the platform and listened to what the two of them were saying. He could not understand it at all.
How could a perfectly good main storyline mission be cut off in advance after achieving this step?
“How did Night Owl do it? We followed the mission line step by step to get here. How did they find the first-generation meteorite earlier than us?”
Fang Heng stuffed the damaged meteorite into his backpack and looked at Zhang Zhe.
From the very beginning to the discovery of the traces of vampires in the cave, the meteorite had already been destroyed.
Night Owl was way ahead of them!
“Dr Kevin went missing six months ago, and the equipment here stopped working six months ago. All the signs indicate that he was killed at that time. Does this mean that Night Owl was six months ahead of us?”
Mo Jiawei also reacted at this time.
“No matter how you calculate it, it’s not right. Even if Night Owl came here after Dr Kevin died, the mercenary group only found traces of the vampire corpse heterozygote here three months ago, so Night Owl should have come here at least three months ago.”
“After all, there’s no sign of Server 8 three months ago. How did they manage to enter the game ahead of time?”
Faced with Mo Jiawei’s questioning, Zhang Zhe’s face was livid. He only said, “It involves Federation secrets. I can only say that Night Owl has the ability to do this, and they’ve already succeeded.”
“In short, our Federation will handle this matter. There’s no need for you to worry about the follow-up.”
After saying that, Zhang Zhe nodded at Chen Yu and took the lead to leave the cave.
Chen Yu scratched his head. He gestured to Fang Heng to contact him again and quickly followed.
Seeing the two of them leave, Mo Jiawei was extremely displeased.
After busying himself for half a day, not only did the mission disappear, but he was also met with a rebuff from the Federation.
“This is the reason why I hate the Federation. They were able to come here because of us. Now that we are of no use to them, they’re running away.”
Fang Heng asked, “Lucia, what are your thoughts?”
“This is also the first time I’ve heard of the Night Owl’s name. We only learned about Paradise Island through encrypted intelligence messages. Someone was three months ahead of us. Could it be someone from the Meteorite Company…” “It shouldn’t be. The Meteorite Company has no connection with the vampires.”
Fang Heng pondered for a moment.
He found that the game mission was still there. It was still focused on finding the first-generation meteorite so they did not fail.
There should be another way.
“The first-generation meteorite has been destroyed. Do the Dark Knights have the ability to repair it?”
“It’s very difficult.” Lucia was worried and said, “We can only try to bring the fragments back to try. The internal structure of the first-generation meteorite has been destroyed. The probability of recovery is very small…”
“Alright, let’s collect the fragments first.”
Fang Heng was also a little unhappy.
The rewards for the main storyline ring mission had always been very generous. If one part was not done well enough, it was not to the extent that all the previous efforts were in vain. However, they would not be able to earn anything bigger in the future.
(Hint: Your survival radio station has received two urgent messages.]
Chen Yu: “Fang Heng, from what Zhang Zhe said, this incident is very serious. Entering the game before the server opens will consume a lot of energy. It is also very difficult for the Federation to do such a thing at the moment. It is also quite unlikely for Night Owl to do so based on his current strength. He suspects that Night Owl might have the support of a higher power backing him.”
Chen Yu: “In addition, our server’s main storyline mission might be cut off by Night Owl. Server 8 might very well become an ownerless land. If there is more information, I will contact you again.”
