"Watch where your stepping, you wouldn't want to trip over some dark energon or something, hehe."
"Very funny. Wait a minute, eew whats that?"
"What? You've never seen a space slug kid?"
"I thought those things were suppose to be huge?"
"Naah, thats only in legend."
"Quiet. Were here."
After being dropped off a few miles outside of Omega City, Roadtrain lead his team through the underground tunnels to enter the city indetected. Soon they came to one of the safe houses that were stocked for them, full of EMP weapons and their regular weapons. With the exception of explosives much to Onix's disappointment.
Incendius and Tomboy soon left the safe house to head to the other safe house while Onix and D-Fib did the same. Roadtrain, Driveby and Hyperstrike took postion inside of there safe house and got themselves ready.
Tomboy, who couldn't help but to have the handsome Incendius by her side in on this mission, was quite happy about the situation. Plus having one of her best friend's leading the team helped too.
But soon, her thought became professional as he powers of observation began to focus on something the Renegade weren't expecting. 'Hey Incendius is it me, or does everyone around here look depressed?'
All about, visible on the road and from the safehouses, the Renegades could see the population of Omega City looking sad and depressed, walking around as if they had no life to them or as if they were low on energy.
Onix went through the stocks at the safe house him and D-Fib had gone too, then when satisfied that he knew what they had at their disposal he went to one of the abandoned warehouses windows and looked out, waiting for the orders to begin the mission.
"Damn, this place makes the back alleys of Polyhex look like the safest place on Cybertron."
D-Fib hummed to herself as she went through an inventory check.
"You want danger, try MacAddam City at closing time. Things get preeeetty rough then."
She then looked out of one of the windows.
"Wow. Everyone looks so.....Miserable. It's got to be something more than long hours and lousy pay."
Roadtrain was making a last minute check of his rifle. He'd stripped and cleaned it, and was now putting it back together.
"You two ready for this?" He asked, not looking up from his rifle.
Roadtrain finished assembling the rifle, stood and slung it over his shoulder. He moved over to a table full of equipment and opened a metal case. Inside was Stinger's head, with a tag attached saying "Don't lose your HEAD, keep your cool."
+++COMM to Onix and D-Fib+++ "Let us all know when you two are in position and ready to create a blackout." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain closed the metal case and picked it up.
"Before Onix and D-Fib hit the lights, Driveby, I want you in position on a rooftop. Optics open, watch our backs. Hypershot, I want you on ground level with me. The statue of Atlas is in the middle of an open square. We both enter from the same point, but head in different directions. When the lights go out, keep watch for anyone approaching me while I drop off our little 'present' for Atlas. Once that's done, we bug out, head back here, then prepare to move on to our next objective."

"My optics are always open", replied Driveby lowly as he attached his silencer, then flicked his scope to night vision for the impending blackout. "I better get moving to get to that rooftop, Good fortune, and good hunting..."

Incendius subconsciously did a self inventory, running his fingers over the EMP grenades at his hip, the blade strapped to his leg, and the twin arm cannons hooked up to his forearms. The time for planning was long gone- now, it was the time for action. Time to put thoughts of home, Phasmatis, and Eraser at the back of his mind, and get into position and cause some blackouts. He had no worries about executing the plan- Tomboy was good soldier, he'd seen her in action. And not to sound arrogant, but he was confident of his own abilities as well. He slipped back out of his thoughts just in time to catch Tomboy's observation. "The people are probably destitute and starving, Tomboy- reason enough, I think, for seeming 'depressed'. There's probably a massive economic deficit. A big company like the Atlas Agency is a constant drain on nearby resources, and doesn't generally put what it's taken back... one second. ++COMM-ROADTRAIN++ Roger that, Leader-1. Moving to first target, the Communications Relay. Over and out. ++END COMM++ ...Shall we get going?" Incendius idly flicked at a nanofly buzzing around his head. He was anxious to be away, and put to the plan in motion.
Driveby got up and stomped down the rest of the tunnel until he reached one of the mannny ladders leading up to a huge grill plate to above.. Storing his weapon, he scaled the ladder and when at the top used one arm to slid the plate across and grow through.
Cautiously he popped hi head and shoulders up using then to prop himself through the hole as he reached for his regular blaster from his back compartment. Raising his arms up against his chest he poked his weapon through the hole upright, and then his arms, carefully scanning the area with his drawn weapon, as much as the confines of the hole would let him, making sure noone was about. It a quick astrosecond, with weapons still in one hand, he pulled himself through the hole to the outside and cupped the weapon again scanning the area 360 on his hunches as he remained kneeled. All was safe.
Silently replacing the cover he saw escape rungs on the side of the building and scoped his way towards them, making sure at all times he wasn't watched. When all was clear, he clambered up the ladder and continued scoping with his drawn blaster. It certainly was a good view for it.
+++INTERNAL COMMS+++"This is Driveby, all is clear and I'm in about to take my marker position, "+++INTERNAL COMMS+++
informed the bot keeping crouched as he moved with his weapon, but still being careful.

As Onix and D-Fib reached the end of the alley, they spied a power box off in the distance, just what they needed. It would knock out a large part of the grid.
All around them, more and more citizens walked about as if they were in some low-powered state. It was as if the citizens were apart of a ghetto besides all the new structures around them.
Then, a squad of OCF cars rolled up. Transforming, they began to engage the crowd. 'All right, new shift and you know the drill. I need sections 4 to 7 to fall in. Come on!'
Tomboy and Incendius reached their safe house and got inside. Their they could grab all they needed. Tomboy was still bothered by what she saw. 'Something ain't right. These people are not on any pay roll. They're not being paid off or living the dream. There workers, and in the worst way.'
Driveby saw that he was well hidden. But then he spied something from above, flyers. OFC police flyers.
Roadtrain and Hypershot could see a few police troops about their position and the same type of people that the other Renegades were seeing; depressed Cybertronians.
Then Roadtrain and Hypershot saw something else. A OCF officer walked over to a small, defenceless robot and began to push him around.
"Stay hidden. We don't want them spotting us. We will move when they clear out."
Onix backed away into the alley, out of sight from the road. He opened his com-channel to Roadtrain and Incindius
--"We've hit a bit of a hold up. OCF rounding up civies for work detail. I don't think these civies are here on their own free will. Think they are from those corporations Atlas bought where all the employees just vanished?"--
+++COMM+++ "Copy that. Me and Hypershot are seeing something similar here. What about you Driveby, seeing what I'm seeing. OCF appear to be a bunch of bullies. Onix, D-Fib, wait for Incendius and Tomboy to get into position before cutting the lights." +++COMM+++
D-Fib continued watching the OCF bully the civillians into place. She made sure her mission recorder picked up some close-up images of the workers and the OCF.
"I'm pretty sure Hoist and Latyrx7 will want to see this when we get back to base, especially if they are the missing workers." She whispered to Onix.

Incendius nodded slowly at Tomboy's comments. "Perhaps so. Slave labour has not been uncommon amongst corrupt organisations in the past. But now is not the time to judge, comrade. Soon, we'll call Atlas to account for his crimes. But first, we have a job to do, so let's stay focused for the time being. Stick close, keep your weapon in reach, and let's pull that gag around Atlas' mouth." He smiled at the fem, armed his weapon, and began walking briskly across the alleyways of Omega City. The communications relay was little more than a click from the safehouse, and before long, he was closing in on the target with Tomboy...
Hypershot was not[/i] enjoying watching the small bot getting bullied. In fact. He was feeling pretty angry about it. Though it didn't look like the little guy was getting hurt at all so that factor only just prevented him from walking over to the officer and punching him in the face. He longed to do just that but instead he stared intently at the officer from behind his visor.
