+++COM+++'Bring him down!'+++COM+++
Funcrusher was fired upon by Stinger as the robot climbed higher. Stinger then shot at a couple of constructibot who didn't get off the metal frame in time while still talking on his comlink. Funcrusher flew around trying to draw his fire. +++COM+++'Umm, someone might want to get this guy, I can't keep this up forever ya know!'+++COM+++
Roadtrain didn't need telling twice. He transformed and sped off towards the construction site.
+++COMM to Funcrusher+++ "I'm en route to the construction sight, you and D-Stroy keep Stinger busy." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain blared his horn as he entered the construction site, making some constructibots move out of the way. He quickly transformed and connected with his trailer. He had his rifle and began to climb the metal frame work, his large size both a blessing and a curse, allowing him to easily reach the next level, but not giving him much room between fully-laid floors.

As Onix finished his transmission, he saw a few more constructibots on the building trying to get away from Stinger. Funcrusher radioed in. +++COM+++'Let me and D-stroy get those robot off the building, then go ahead with... aww slag! Negative Onix, Roadtrain is making his way up the building.'+++COM+++
Funcrusher continued to distract Stinger while D-Stroy started getting constructibots off the metal frames. But then Stinger saw Roadtrain approaching. 'Blast it! I'll have to call you back, these slag heads down know when to give up!' Said Stinger in to his comlink just before it closed up on his arm.
Roadtrain reached the level Stinger was on. He drew his weapon has he approached.
"Looks like we've got a repeat of what happened in the market. Either give up and we do this the easy way, or do it the hard way. And I guarantee, you'll be in bad shape if you choose the hard way." Roadtrain said as he got closer, slowly towering over Stinger.

Springer looked down at Roadtrain. 'While part of me wants to know who you are, the other doesn't care! Clearly you are not Autobots but all the same....'
Springer fired up at a bunch of piles that were all tied together and hanging off the side of the building. 'You'll die for trying to catch me.' The piles came down around Roadtrain, smacking off his armor as Springer boosted up another level despite his rocket pack was failing.

(ooc: just so you guys know how far up Stinger is at this moment, he's about 10 stories up and climbing. He's using his damaged rocket pack to jump up a story or two with each burst and the pain from his damaged leg is slowing him down. I put Roadtrain up around the 4th of 5th atm)
Roadtrain was slightly shaken after the piles hit him. He dusted himself off and started climbing again. Stinger was really starting to annoy him now.
+++COMM+++ "Negative, Onix. Bringing the building down is too risky. It might hurt any bystanders, or it could kill Stinger. Orders are to bring him in alive. Funcrusher, D-Stroy, strafe Stinger's position with gunfire a couple of times to slow him down. Don't aim directly at him, just close enough to distract him." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain grunted as he continued climbing, nearing the 7th floor, still a few floors below Stinger.
-- "I disagree. It is too risky to follow him up there. He has every advantage. Height, smaller foot print to ensure sound footing. He isn't going down without a fight, and he's probably not for being taken alive. At least the higher he is in the building the less there is to fall on him." --

Incendius watched Roadtrain's progress as he made his way up the building after Stinger. "Where are you going, Stinger? Where are you trying to get to?" A thought struck him. "What if he's getting to an extraction point?!" He cursed as he ran for the construction site, comming Roadtrain. ++COMM++ Keep going, Roadtrain! You've nearly got him! Funcrusher, D-Stroy, keep up the cover fire! Target that damned rocket pack!" ++END COMM++ He aimed carefully with his arm cannon, and began shooting at Stinger's unprotected back.

Stinger caught a blast to his back, damaging the rocket pack further. He was around the 14th floor and began to travel deep towards the middle of the structure to get away form the barrage of laser bolts being fired at him.
Tomboy then arrived on the scene after her head had cleared up and saw Roadtrain up the building, the air support rescuing the last of the constructibots and then flying about to find Stinger. She turned to Incendius. 'Why not have air support drop pick some of us up and drop us on to the building?'
Driveby followed Roadtrain, arriving just as the Renegade was being covered in piles. Transforming he saw the bot hake them off and go after stinger, who was still climbing higher and higher and getting every advantage, Carefully he drew his sniper rifle out and attached the barrel and tried to get a shot in but Stinger disappeared from sight as he headed in towards the center of the building. He couldn't risk Roadtrain and he certainly wasn't going to go climbing like the others.
Transforming back he skidded round and tried to follow in vehicle mode where Stinger was headed..
Roadtrain continued climbing, letting out an almost constant stream of curse words. He was starting to think he was getting too old for this sort of thing. He was getting closer, but he was still a few floors behind.
D-Fib arrived shortly after everyone else and saw the spectacle of Roadtrain climbing the building while Funcrusher and D-Stroy circled.
"Wow! This is getting intense! Should we take bets on which of those three gets the target?"
