That skywarp was a tough gun of a glitch RipRaw thought to himself. But as the seeker issued his challenge, the Autobot inwardly grinned. "FRAG YEAH!!" RipRaw roared. He knew he was taking far too much punishment, but as this was a sim, he decided he just didn't care.
RipRaw gunned his rocketpack and closed the distance to the purple jerkacon. He brought both axes down in a double diagonal slash, leaving broken pieces of his own armour and leaking oil in his exaust plumes.
He wasn't exactly bringing a knife to a gun fight, but there were better ways of dogfighting he knew. But they were not as fun.
Skywarp was sure he was going to take out this Autobot right here and now. He figured his opponent would try to run but he didn't expect this. As he watched his assault do damage, he was then stunned as RipRaw's swords hit his gun and slash it apart. With no time to react, Skywarp collided with RipRaw and began to grapple with the Autobot.
(OOC: "leaving broken pieces of his own armour and leaking oil in his exaust plumes." Is that the damage RipRaw is suffering from Skywarp's assault? Just curious as I have a cold and I'm not feeling very keen at the moment.)
And RipRaw was sure he was going to hack and slash this Opponent right here and now. Funny how plans never quite work out. Skywarp reacted fast enough to block with his gun. RipRaw felt the satisfying crunch as his axes tore through it. He went to swing again as the seeker started to grapple him. That was unexpected for RipRaw, it was also effective, getting inside the range and sweep of the melee weapons. As the two fliers wrassled, RipRaw tried to angle one of his axes for Skywarp’s neck and lever the edge some good ol decapitation.
(OOC: Yes it was RipRaw taking the damage from the assault)
Skywarp saw the blade coming and grabbed RipRaw's forearm, fighting to hold it back but RipRaw was far stronger then he was. As the two fell towards the ground and RipRaw's blade started to touch the Decepticon's neck, Skywarp activated his teleportation power again, taking both robots at the same time.
RipRaw found himself smashing through the top of a building with Skywarp. The Seeker needed something to slow down there fall and the roof top of one of the surrounding structures would be prove to be 'softer' the then the ground. Rip Raw fell through about 5 floors before he finally stopped. Covered in scrap metal, RipRaw would be able to unbury him, but at the moment Skywarp was no where to be seen.
RipRaw definitely did not see that coming, he had no idea Skywarp could warp others too. He was powerless to do anything about crashing through the floor of a building. What he did mange was to hold onto both axes and curl up enough to let his left side take the brunt rather than his softer back.
The hunter’s systems registered massive sustained damage through out, but nothing immediately fatal. It was almost more than he could do to haul himself from the wreckage. Gingerly, RipRaw tested his limbs and found his left arm partially unresponsive. He put one axe away. The side of his rocketpack was also badly indented and would limit his flying too. Still, he had a bit more fight left in him. But what to do?
All three seekers would know his location and likely condition if Skywarp was able to radio the others. Even right now there could be more missiles. Most likely RipRaw surmised, they would be engaging WildSpark, or circling like vultures. RipRaw began to scout the building, peering through windows and holes in wall without being seen himself. He figured his best bet was to engage at range with every round left in his X24 gattling laser.
RipRaw then heard the shifting of gears as someone close by transformed, Then the roar of engines were heard as Skywarp came about on the outside of the building, furtherest away from where RipRaw was. But Skywarp had the Autbot's position and began to open fire, sending a flurry of bullets through the buildings walls and windows, headed for RipRaw.
He didn’t know which damnable opponent was shooting at him now but RipRaw had had enough, and subtlety was never his own strong point. If he was going to go out, he would go out in a blaze of glory. With little left to lose, he transformed with a painful grind of gears and plates, and returned fire. He charged forward into the fray, X24 spewing the promise of death. He busted through perforated walls and doors and whoever was outside was going to get the pointy end of a gatling laser. RipRaw did all this slightly askew, his right side armour helping to absorb the punishment and spare his severely weakened frontal armour.
Skywarp's wing was hit by RipRaw's swift and precise counter-attack, making him spinning around in mid-air and lose balance for a moment. As Skywarp came back around, RipRaw came through the wall, guns blazing and finding his target. Skywarp's body was riddle with bullets, pushing him back and to break apart. As his internal systems began to report all the damage he was suffering, small explosion followed, erupting all over his body in a chain-reaction that was too much for his laser core to handle. As RipRaw poured on the assault, Skywarp's body then exploded with a quick bang, shooting flaming shrapnel that was once the Seeker's body in all directions.
But before any celebration could take place, RipRaw heard the approach of another pair of jet engines, sounding like they belonged to that of one of the other Seekers. Thrust, blazing his engines as loud as he could to put the fear into the Autobot, was coming up fast and fired another pair of homing rockets at RipRaw.
RipRaw’s celebration at having finally beaten the pesky purple jet was short lived. At the sound of another approaching jet, he spun around and reopened fire. He aimed for the rockets and the jet beyond. At this rate, he would not have enough fire power left for a third attacker.
He wasn’t about to be scared off by anything short of Megatronus Prime himself.
As much as Thrust's engines had warned Ripraw of his approach, the rockets were almost on him! As he zeroed in on one rocket, causing it the explode, the second narrowly escaped and was only 50 feet away. As RipRaw tried to blast the deadly projectile on of the air, the missile blew up when it was about 20 feet from RipRaw. The red hot explosion was bright and blinding, forcing the Autobot away form the direction he had been headed in, showering him in flames.
Thrust flew over head, expecting to see the Autobot crashing down to his demise. When he saw that RipRaw was still function, he headed downwards towards the top of the nearest structure. His intention was to land and ready his Chaos-Rift Combustor to deal with RipRaw if he was still in the air.
Considering that RipRaw was close to 20 feet in length anyway, having a rocket explode 20 feet away meant that it exploded in his face. The blast wave and shrapnel tore away much of his remaining armoured skin, fractured internal structures, and ruptured fuel line. It also blasted him backwards and sent him tumbling to he ground.
All but overcome with the pain, RipRaw managed to orientate on Thrust and reopen fire with his remaining ammo. Five seconds later, stasis lock overcame the hunter, the match over for him.
Thurst watched as RipRaw fell to the ground and cheered. He then leapt over the side, transformed and hovered down to the ground and reverted back to robot-mode as he landed next to RipRaw and began to yell. "I win! I always win! Take that Autobot!"
As the simulated form of Thrust danced for joy, up above in the battle sims control room, fellow security officer Rook had watched the hold thing in the presence of Red Alert. However before RipRaw's defeat, Red Alert stepped away as something was in need of his attention, leaving Rook alone to watch his buddy RipRaw lose. Rook looked to see if anyone was watching and the sneakily hit the RESPAWN button for RipRaw, bringing him 'back to life' to finish the fight.
RipRaw was the sort of mech who grabbed life by the throat, and shook it down for lunch money. The sudden reprieve from simulated death was entirely unexpected, but RipRaw was nonetheless quick to take advantage. Still in his alt form, his X24 was already swivelling and firing before he had even cleared the ground. At this point blank range, the gatling laser was sure to chew any resistance. Resistance was in fact, quite futile thought RipRaw.
“RipRaw’s Revengence Slag Suckers!” He roared in defiance at Thrust.
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
