Roadtrain smiled to himself when he heard Tomboy's message.
+++COMM+++ "Looks like things are going to get a little heated. Everyone get ready, don't know what might happen." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain continued moving towards Stingers. Stinger's goon approached him and stuck his arm out and placed it on Roadtrain's chest in an attempt to stop him. It failed. Roadtrain grabbed the goon's wrist, twisted it and places his other hand on the back of the goon's head while kicking his legs out and driving him face-first into the ground. The entire maneuver happened surprisingly quickly. Roadtrain left the goon on the floor and picked up his pace moving towards Stinger.

And just as Onix finished his statement, he saw who Stinger was waving to. 5 more robots with Omega symbols on their bodies. Making their way towards Stinger, they quicken their pace as soon as they saw what Roadtrain did. Stinger stood his group, still out of site for Driveby to shoot him and cause a simple non-fatal injury.
-- "I see five more headed in on you. Should I engage? I can distract them while you take care of stinger." --
Onix gripped his blaster tighter and grabbed the front grip holding the blaster down towards the ground but ready to take a shot as soon as he got the go ahead or if things got hot fast. Then he saw they quickened their pace.
-- "They are moving quicker. Someone jump the gun?" --

Driveby re-adjusted again, unfortunately from where he was and the other guys still blocking his view he could only get one out of the two, unless he zero'd back in quickly and managed to take the other guy out. Once again he lined the bot up in his sights.. Incendius had said to bring Stinger in alive but nothing about the guards...
As the small red cross marked the one of the guys head, Driveby wasted no time and shot at the temple in his head, as the others reacted he swung the barrel over to the right but kept his composure and zero'd in on the second guy aiming right between the eyes....
A shot bellowed out as Drive shot at the upper-leg area, some of the market people and those looking to buy weapons stared to panic now and run in all directions. Driveby stood up, pulled the resting arm and barrel off and jumped over the market stall headed towards Stinger. As he ran he put his sniper away and reached around to the panel in his back and pulled out his blaster and fired of some safety disabling shots at Stinger.
Roadtrain drew his rifle, smashing another of Stinger's goons in the back with it as he saw Driveby take a couple of shots at Stinger. He fired a small burst in the direction of Stinger. He was still much closer than any of the other Renegades, aside from Tomboy. Roadtrain finally got a clear aim at Stinger.
"You! Hold it right there!"
+++COMM+++ "Everyone better get their tail-pipes in motion and get over here!" +++COMM+++
Roadtrain hung back from Stinger, making sure he kept his rifle pointing directly at him.
Onix leaped onto a table and then up onto a crate. He raised his blaster to his optic so he could see down the sight. He aimed for the lead of the five bots rushing Tomboy and Stingers position. Aiming for the center mass of the atlas thug, he squeezed off five consecutive shots in rapid succession. He didn't wait to see if they connected or not before jumping down off of the crates.
-- "I'm going to rig some stalls by our exit to give us cover to make out retreat. Grab Stinger and bring him my way. It should cover us pretty well" --
Onix ran up to a stall and pointed his blaster at the vendor
"Get out of here or I blow your head off"
He pulled out a charge from the specialized compartment on the side of his leg. As the charge came out another moved forward to take its place. If he hadn't just pulled one charge out, no one would know that the inconspicuous design on the side of his leg was an explosive. Onix pressed two sides of the charge in towards the middle of the circular device and the light on it showed red to let him know it was primed and ready for the detonation signal. He stuck it under the edge of the stall and moved on to the next.

Incendius broke into a sprint. Roadtrain was in there without him and it was time for action. No comm orders were coming out now- he was totally focused on his angle of the plan. Closing in on the disengaged second flank, he took advantage of the commotion Roadtrain was causing among Stinger's guards to ram his blade through the unprotected back of one of the Omega Company. The blade ignited on contact and burned fiercely for a few seconds, before he wrenched it out and shoved the mech savagely forwards into another guard. He shouted over to Roadtrain on the other flank. "Train! Need a little help?" He pulled up his arm cannon and pointed it at Stinger, keeping one eye on the mark and the other on the approaching five members of the Omega Company...
Roadtrain heard Incendius and swung Old Painless around to point at the 5 Omega Company goons moving towards him. Roadtrain aimed at one near the back of the group and fired his flak cannon and then pumped in a new round. The pellets from the flak cannon tore into the goon he aimed at, it wasn't a fatal shot, but the goon as out of the fight. Roadtrain then fired a couple of quick bursts at the Omega goons.

Incendius saw one of the 5 robots rushing them fall, due to Onix taking him down. With all of the 8 original mech down, except for Stinger, it was only the four from the other group that seemed to be a threat. The four remaining Omega mechs ducked for cover and began to open fire at Incendius, Roadtrain and Onix.
As Driveby ran in, it seemed that none of the Omega thugs realized that he was involved. He saw that Tomboy had her weapons focused in Stinger's direction. Stinger had laid low for the entire time, avoiding any serious injuries. It seemed that they would be able to grab him.
But before anyone could get a hand on Stinger, from behind Stinger out came a dealer with a massive rpg. 'You'll never take me back to jail!'
***COM***'Slag it! The dealer must think were after him!'***COM*** Wasting no more time, Tomboy used her magnetic powers to latch on to the rpg and pull it from the dealer's hands. Stinger then grabbed the dealer and brought out a blaster, using the dealer as a hostage. 'I don't know who you punks are, but your not taking me down!'
Stinger fired at the rpg that Tomboy was holding. It began to overload. Tomboy used her magnetic powers once more and threw the rpg as far as she could into the air. The rocket inside the rpg blew up before it reached the safest distance, resulting in the blast pushing mostly everyone down.
Stinger used the distraction to his advantage. He lost the hostage and transformed into his car mode, smashing through tables to get away.
And as if thing couldn't get worse, Incendius' comlink beeped. ***COM***'Omnitron calling in, progress report.'***COM***
The explosion from the RPG forced Roadtrain down onto on knee. He recovered just in time to be able to fire off a couple of shots at Stinger. He couldn't tell if any of them hit. He cursed, action needed to be taken and quickly. He was probably going to over-step his mark with what he needed to say, but Incendius was probably about to say it. "Driveby, Tomboy, you two are the fastest. Follow Stinger and try to take him down. Incendius, Onix and I will try to head him off." He barked.
Onix planted one more charge when the RPG sent him crashing into the stall he had planted the charge into. He got up and dusted himself off only to here all the commotion. he ran over to some cover, 2 charges would have to do for their exit strategy, and checked himself real quick. There were a few abrasions and he may have been shot once, but it only grazed his armor for what he could tell. He peered around the cover where the few remaining goons where all taking cover. He wasn't the best shot in this kind of situation, so he did what he was best at. Onix pulled out a charge again, this time opening a small panel on the front and setting the timer for 5 seconds then he closed the panel, squeezed the 2 sides in to prime the charge and flung in out into the middle of the goons. He hoped that there weren't any other people there besides the atlas goons, but then, it was a black market full of thieves, thugs and murderers.

Incendius rolled as the lasers streaked past him. Most missed him, but one struck him square in the chest, sending a shudder through his body as his torso went into spasm. He crawled to a nearby table and ran diagnostic. The damage wasn't bad, but just enough to hurt alot. He felt the heat of the RPG explosion, and turned to see Stinger driving through tables. He nodded across to Roadtrain, then activated his comm yet again. ++COMM++ "Driveby, Tomboy, do as Roadtrain says and subdue Stinger. If he's some kind of leader to them, then we can use him as bargaining tool! HURRY! We're running out of time!" ++END COMM++ He gritted his teeth to suppress the pain. It was time to pull out the heavy guns. Converting to incendiary blast and activating rapid fire, he swung his arm cannon up from cover and fired a few well placed sprays of explosives around the four Omegas that were firing on him and the others. It was then he picked up Omnitron's transmission. Groaning with frustration, he replied. ++COMM++ "Progress... being made, sir. We're under heavy fire from a group of Stinger's friends wearing some kind of insignia, and I've got some of the team subduing the mark. Nothing else to report. Over and out." ++END COMM++

....and BAM!! The chargers went off, killing all fours thugs. Any Renegade that looked towards the explosion would see the thugs were now out of the way and that almost everyone, dealer and customer were gone out of the area, if not hiding among turned over tables and other objects. However, the blast must have spooked Stinger for he was off in another direction away from where the explosion happened and towards an exit that lead to where some heavy construction was taking place.
Tomboy dug herself out of a pile of broken tables and weapons as she heard Roadtrain's orders. She shook her head and checked herself over. She was ok but the blast left her a bit dizzy. None the less she transformed to go after Stinger. 'Where the frak did he go?'
