Mech: Shattering of the Galaxy - Chapter 29
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
The yellow and white lights on the floor started to light up, dim, and light up again in a counterclockwise pattern.
Mu Fan’s breathing became heavier, and he closed his eyes as he wanted to push himself further and see where his limits were!
Mu Fan’s ears twitched.
Puff! The sound of an object piercing through the air sounded from behind him.
Mu Fan suddenly opened his eyes and jumped away, avoiding the attack from behind. He focused and saw that it was a tiny white ball about the size of his pinky fingernail, and it rolled into a hole in the floor after hitting the ground. It was a rubber bullet!
Again, Mu Fan moved sideways immediately, and an air current went across his abdomen, hitting the ground.
Even under 2.3X gravitational force, Mu Fan still didn’t feel any discomfort. After taking those few deep breaths, he could clearly feel that his body had already adjusted in this environment, and his adaptation was faster than he imagined.
His leg, waist, and arm muscles started to contract, and he could feel them becoming tighter when he tried to exert force. He was about one centimeter off from his expectations when he jumped to dodge the rubber bullets; it was within the acceptable range!
Interesting! Mu Fan’s lips curled.
Puff! Mu Fan backflipped as another rubber bullet shot in his direction and skimmed past his head, waist, and lower legs. However, it didn’t even touch his clothes at all.
“Level-26!” Mu Fan shouted out loud.
A total of 2.6X gravitational force! The sounds of objects piercing through air came from three directions, and they were clearly faster than before. The lights on the floor started to light up and dim at a faster pace, making it seem like light was encircling the room. The atmosphere in the gravity room started to tumble.
The three rubber bullets came at Mu Fan from peculiar angles and didn’t give him any time to prepare. Mu Fan felt his heart tighten as his body twisted into a strange position, and the three rubber bullets missed him and hit the walls before the energy in them was absorbed, and they slowly rolled into the hole in the floor.
It was only now that Mu Fan felt something strange about his body; it wasn’t that his body was out of his control but rather errors were made in his judgment and reaction. The force that his muscles generated according to the instructions given by his mind was not enough to achieve his goal under this gravitational force. He calmed down and tried to readjust his control of his muscles.
His breathing started to become heavy as all the cells in his body sensed this heaviness.
There weren’t even two seconds of rest time! Bam! Bam! Bam! Three more rubber bullets were shot at Mu Fan again. His left leg adjusted its strength as he leaped upwards onto the wall before side flipping, dodging the bullets once again.
His heart contracted forcefully and expanded as Mu Fan’s eyes started to redden.
This feeling is here… again!
Pump, pump, pump! Mu Fan could hear the sound of his heart contracting and expanding harder under the high pressure. As a result, more strength rushed into his body.
Yes, it is this feeling! Rubber bullets shot out from a hidden barrel in the wall to Mu Fan’s four o’clock direction, and the round bullets dashed straight at his right shoulder.
Mu Fan controlled his muscles and twisted away, dodging it perfectly!
The three rubber bullets every attack couldn’t block Mu Fan’s dodging routes.
After successfully avoiding ten rounds of attacks, sweat dripped down Mu Fan’s forehead silently and was swung onto the ground as he shook his head.
Another three rubber bullets shot at Mu Fan in a triangular shape, and they were less than three meters away.
Veins bulged on Mu Fan’s forehead, and he bent his straight body toward the right while his left leg was lifted from the ground; it looked like a peacock fanning its feathers as he kicked one bullet on the side with his instep.
Within less than a second, Mu Fan kicked away the two bullets on the top as the last bullet went across the place where his left ankle was at a moment ago.
Using momentum, he pushed against the ground with his arm and flipped proficiently sideways in the 2.6X gravity. His body drew a smooth arc in the air.
His movement was agile like a leaping leopard and light-footed like an antelope that left no trace.
He was able to mimic this movement that originated from the PO Battle Network to 100%!
It is way easier compared to the poisonous stingers that those head stinger beasts in the wilderness shoot out. Mu Fan smirked as he had many encounters with those stinger beasts when he tried to hunt for smaller prey. Those beasts had a strong sense of territory. The stingers that they shot were fast and poisonous; he had developed ulcers for more than a week when a stinger accidentally pierced his skin.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Under the pressure of life and death, Mu Fan had entered his zone as his body reflexes had fully adapted to the situation. He was going to challenge the Gladiator tomorrow, and if he didn’t succeed this time, then he would try a second time. If he didn’t succeed the second time, then he would try ten more times. He wouldn’t die from it, so what more could he ask for!
Mu Fan was panting harder as his emotions were affected.
Pia! The moment that he lost his focus, a rubber bullet hit Mu Fan’s shoulder hard, making it swell and redden in an instant.
Mu Fan’s heart started to contract harder, and the sound of his heartbeat was like a drumstick striking a davul.
The red mark left by the bullet that was supposed to swell got tightly pressed into his flesh as his heart pumped and skin tightened
Mu Fan was going berserk!
Shoot the rubber bullets! I’ll move even faster than you. Mu Fan took a sidestep and spun around before sliced the incoming bullets with his right hand.
Mu Fan wasn’t dodging the bullets anymore as he decided that he was going to struck all of them down.
One bullet was about to hit the wall. Mu Fan leaped with both legs and stomped the wall; he was squatting almost perpendicularly before he pushed himself towards that bullet. He charged at it like a cannonball and turned his body 180 degrees before doing a split while striking downwards.
Pia! That rubber bullet was struck down by Mu Fan’s foot before it even reached the wall. Mu Fan caught up with a flying bullet!
The average speed for humans in UGF was 10 m/s. If the instructors from the four big military academies were here to watch this, they would have easily confirmed that Mu Fan’s explosive speed at that moment was over 30 m/s. It meant that he was way more than average; he would be seen as a superhuman.
The military academies only wanted elites! And superhumans were the top of the elites.
How could they be so sure? The move that Mu Fan had just done to strike down the bullet was named Li’s Vertical Split, an A-level military move.
Was that easy to do?
First, the move should look somewhat similar. Then, the standard gravity would need to be above 2.5X, and the speed of the leg striking down would need to exceed the traveling speed of the bullet which was 30m/s. Lastly, under the power analysis of the leg, the explosive power would need to be over level-15 in physique level, which would be equivalent to 2,350KG of force.
It was known that Mu Fan had reached level-15, but if he satisfied the first two requirements, then the last one was only a matter of time!
A loud thud sounded as Mu Fan’s leg slammed the ground like an iron club, but it seemed like he didn’t feel any pain as he rolled backwards and stood up by propping himself up with his arms.
“Ha, that’s it?” Mu Fan got excited as he struck down every single bullet.
“System has detected that the user’s heart rate is abnormally fast, and the blood flow speed is too quick. Do you wish to terminate the training session?”
Mu Fan was in position and got ready for the next round of bullets, but no bullets came out. Then, he heard the System’s voice, and he rejected it without a doubt.
Mu Fan’s heart was beating with strength, and he felt like something within his body had been unlocked under the high gravitational force. The fast speed of his blood flow wasn’t making his vessels expand, and his heart could pump blood throughout his body tirelessly.
“Level-29!” 2.9X gravitational force!
Six rubber bullets came towards Mu Fan at the same time. Whoosh! Mu Fan dashed across the room, striking down three of them. Then, he pushed his hands forward, making the last three to slide down his arms.
“Level-32!” He sounded as if he couldn’t wait any longer. There was excitement, confidence, impatience, and a little bit of craziness in his voice.
It was only five seconds later when his voice echoed in the gravitational room again!
