Onix stood and looked at the carnage. He smiled under his face plate.
"Damn, I'm good."
Onix's hud showed Incindius behind cover down the row of stalls the thugs had been in. He ran over to him, his face plate opening up. He knelt down beside Incindius and slapped the back of his hand against his shoulder
Driveby stood up from being blown down by the force of the explosion, "Get a grip Incendius, I didn't need telling twice", growled the bot and looked to the ground, seeing the tyre tracks made by Stinger. Transforming, Driveby kicked up the dirst and skidded off.
"Tomboy, follow Driveby. He's picked up Stinger's trail." Roadtrain called out.
He quickly made his way over to Incendius and Onix. He knelt down next Incendius.
"Good work with that explosive, Onix. You two ready to move out? We're going to need to move quickly. We'll need to cut through some alleys to try and cut off Stinger's escape route. Do either of you have any way of tracking him?"

As Driveby drove after him, for a second he lost sight of Stinger. Then seeing a commotion where a group of black market dealer's were shouting, he heard a car driving away. Tomboy was driving up behind Driveby and took a left down a another street. She saw the same commotion. 'Driveby, I'm on your 9. I think I see the target to my 2. Going to engage.'
***COM***'Team, I think the target is headed towards the construction site close to the Boltarmar city hall!'***COM***
Don't go doing anything stupid rookie. Be careful. And this isn't concern I just don't want to be shovelling your remains of the floor and have to explain to the commanding officer what in the frell you are about to do. Understood?"
+++ COMMS +++
The words may have seemed slightly harsh or to the point but Driveby wasn't about to let a dumb rookie make a mistake and get smeared all over the floor. Taking a sharp turn Driveby followed Tomyboy, flooring the speed as best he could now as they headed towards the construction site...

+++COM+++'I'll give you something to shovel, you recall!'+++COM+++
Tomboy and Driveby torn though the narrow streets after Stinger. Citizens watched in awe and fright as the transformers tore through with reckless abandon and no concern for who they might hit.
Tomboy and Driveby began to catch up to Stinger, only to watch as rocket booster came out from his rear and activate, putting some distance between him and the Renegades. Just as they lost sight of Stinger, Computic's voice came over the comlinks of all Renegades in the area. +++COM+++'Driveby, Tomboy! Target has entered a building. Sending coordinates to you and the team.'+++COM+++
(ooc: Description of the area now, lots of low building, nothing more then 3 stories high. Very old and run down part of town, a virtual maze in a ghetto like setting. Some open areas used for selling and dealing. Area occupied by poor, lower class citizens and criminals)
Pull outside, rookie. Do not enter, repeat do not enter without back up!
+++ COMMS +++
Driveby pulled up near the building and Tomboy and immediately transformed, wasting no time drawing his thermo sword. Carefully he backed against the wall just back from the door entrance and thumbed for Tomboy to do the same, motioning her to "hug the wall" as it were.

With both Renegades flanking the wall, they both heard Computic over their comlinks.
+++COM+++'Scans are unable to pick up target's location inside the building. The structure is made from steel to dense to get a reading. The others are on their way, ETA 2 astro-minutes. +++COM+++
'In two astro-minutes he'll find a way out. Driveby, cover my 'rookie' can!'
Tomboy ran in through the door way and right away the shots whipped past her. She dived for a pile of crates that was closest and remained unharmed. She popped her head over the crates as fast as she could and dove back down before more laser bolts could render her a memory. She had spotted Stinger as he made his way up a flight of stairs, armed with two blasters. She activated her internal, low range scanners (standard military equipment in all Autobot/Renegade soldiers) and she picked up movement going away from her position. Properly robots escaping the building.
"Stupid cadet!", thought Driveby to himself and sheathed his thermo sword, pulling out his blaster instead. Driveby swing through the door firing of an entire clip as covering fire as he ran over to the crates into a kneeling position.
"If a job's not worth risking - don't risk it!", muttered the bot, "Don't you ever listen?!"
OOC: metallic stairs/ catwalk esq stairs? I.E. He can be seen through them - or soild?

ooc: For you, see through
Tomboy winked at Driveby. 'Is that how you talk to your superior?'
More laser fire hit the boxes the two Renegade hid behind. 'What's your beef with me? You some rival gang? I know you ain't Autobots. Autobots follow rules. How about I just pay you a little something for your troubles and you losers leave me alone and I'll forget that this ever happened, ok? What do ya say?'
Stinger was hiding behind a box the same as the two Renegades, but his feet and lower legs were rather exposed through the stairs.

Incendius was running hard. The co-ordinates had popped up on his HUD and he wasn't about to stick around to enjoy the scenery. He took one last look at the burning carnage behind him, and then made for the building Stinger was hiding in. He heard the shots and Stinger's voice, flattening himself against the outside wall when he did. He re-assesed, then commed his allies. ++COMM++ "Roadtrain, Onix, hold up. Don't enter yet. We'll cut of his escape and go in if it gets tough on Driveby and Tomboy. Understood?" ++END COMM++ He placed his ear against the wall, hugging the wall as he moved slowly towards the entrance. He had a feeling this was going to be a tricky manouver...
