+++COMM+++ "Listen up team. Driveby pointed out a statue earlier, a statue dedicated to the Guardian Robots. I've just realised why they have that statue. This city is where Crystal City once stood, the one guarded by Omega Supreme. I'm not sure if that has any significance to our mission, but if you see anything related to the Guardian Robots, make a log of it and let me know." +++COMM+++
Roadtrain thought to himself for a moment while waiting for Driveby.
"Omega City.....Guardian Robots....Omega Supreme.....Atlas.....Omega City.....Omega Supreme....Omega....? No....That can't be possible, can it?" He looked up at Hypershot and Xjar. "It can't be a coincidence that this very city is named after the Guardian Robot who once guarded it, can it? I find it hard Atlas would name the city after Omega Supreme instead of himself if there wasn't a damn good reason for it."
After spotting Pointblank was on his knees, then both legs taking the silencer of his sniper rifle as he ran to the edge of the roof, the way he'd come. Storing his weapon he climbed back down the building and transformed, accelerating away fast as the tyres tore up hot gravel like sparks from a welding unit.
+++ COMM+++ "I'm on my way Roadtrain, but the OFC flyers that flew over were joined by another one, not like th others, but I'd know that configuration from the data-files anywhere.. It was Pointblank.." +++ COMM+++

As d-Fib was being pulled out of the manhole, she heard another sound echoing through the tunnels. This time is sounded like a generator winding up and then stopping, followed by what could of been a burst of steam.
Roadtrain then noticed a squad of OCF's making their way towards the place where he left Stinger's head. Xjar then spoke to the two Renegades. 'I can help! I can take you any where you want to go I know many alley ways and the safest routes. Come, I show you!'
As Driveby sped to meet the others, he turned a corner and came face to face with a large group of citizens being herded towards a large green truck, no doubt a large Cybertronian in truck mode. From behind him came more citizens, again being herded and all around OCF officers where using their arm attachments to stun the body's of the Omega population to make them move faster.
Tomboy and Incendius made for their next spot in vehicle mode and barely got through. Again Tomboy used her magnetic powers to float the EMP device towards another power box Wasting no time, once the EMP was connected to the box, she actived it and knocked out more of the power grid of Omega City. '***IC***'Roadtrain, deed in done. What mission impossible do you have for your girl to do next?'***IC*** Said Tomboy in her usual cocky tone.
+++COMM+++ "Good work Tomboy. You two need to evade capture now. And for the love of Primus, keep me posted on anything you find out about the Guardian Robots. Onix, D-Fib, take out that transport terminal. Driveby, for Spark's sake, where are you?! Everyone, keep an eye out for Atlas's goon, Pointblank. Do not engage unless you have no choice." +++COMM+++
Deadbolt turned to Hypershot and Xjar.
"The moment Driveby gets here, we leave and take out that surveilance station. Xjar, you can show us the quickest way there."
+++COMM+++ "Roadtrain. Me and Onix are at the terminal, ready to proceed. As I was climbing out of one of the tunnels, I heard another noise. Sounded like a generator being powered up then shut off. Also sounded like steam. Think it was a back-up circuit for the power grid?" +++COMM+++
+++COMM+++ "Ok, thanks D-Fib. I'm not sure what it could be. I hope it is just a back-up generator." +++COMM+++
D-Fib looked at Onix as they got closer to the terminal.

Once again, D-Fib and Onix heard what sounded like more steam and the humming of perhaps a generator or could it be flowing energon? It was clear where the noise was now coming from and now, the two found some pipes that lead in the same direction that the noise was coming from.
Tomboy and Incendius made their way through the darkness. As they did they watched as the OCF moved more and more citizens into the closest buildings around. The police now began to form squads and marched through the streets, looking for anything out of the ordinary. ***IC***'Team. Incendius and I are watching as the OCF really starting to form up and proceed to find out what's going on. They're forming squads and locking up the citizens into the closest buildings around. Advise, what do you want me and Incendius to do before I answer the urge to test how strong OCF armor is.'***COM***
Ajar lead Hypershot and Roadtrain out of the garage and through an alley way towards their next destination. 'I can take you almost anywhere you want to go in Omega city. Except out or under. Under ground, lots of mystery happens. And I can't take you to Atlas' tower. Too guarded. Somethings, we here like to think Primus is striking out at Atlas for all his evil with the static storms. The when the tower was finished, the storms started and many times it seems the lighting is attacking the tower. One day I hope to see it fall! Maybe you are here to do that? Ha! Maybe Primus sent you!'
Over head, the sound of a jet was heard flying over. Pointblank, one of Atlas' right handed mechs, announced his arrival and spoke out loud for all to hear. 'Attention! This is Pointblank! Atlas has ordered that any and all slaves who resist, to end their existence! And anyone rebels found will be made an example of!'
Roadtrain again heard more static come through his comlink, as did Hypershot, Tomboy and Incendius.
+++COMM+++ "Roadtrain, me and Onix are checking out the noise we heard in the tunnels. The noise might be flowing energon." +++COMM+++
+++COMM+++ "Ok. Incendius, I want you and Tomboy to join up with Onix and D-Fib and find out what's going on down there. Be careful don there. Me and Hypershot have met up with a local, says there is alot of mystery down there. Driveby, we're on the move, catch up with us. Is anyone else getting static on their COMM links?" +++COMM+++

***IC***'Roger that on the static Leader-1. Just got some feedback a second ago. Any ideas on what it could be? Possibly the science team trying to make contact or Hardstrike and Incognito?'***IC***
As Incendius spoke to Roadtrain, Tomboy grabbed his arm and pulled him to the side of a building to hide. Their area was getting tighter and tighter with OCF troops. ***IC***'Leader-1! Me and Tomboy got to stay put for a second, surrounded by OCF but they haven't seen us, over''***IC***
Ajar stopped as something ahead of him scared him. Just ahead, Pointblank had landed not to far from them and in the place they were headed too. The Omega city thug began to give orders with his targetmaster partner Blastmaster beside him. 'If this is another attempt at the rebels causing trouble, not only will they be killed but I might just slaughter some of you punks as well! I ordered a full purge off all rebels the last time they caused trouble and I was told all of them were located and exterminated!'
'Yeah yeah you tell'em boss! I can't wait to sink some laserbolts in to a few slaves again! Their optics get all wide and stuff, it's the funniest thing ever!'
As Pointblank was about to give more orders, a explosion was seen up in the air and in the distance. 'What in the smelting pool was that? I don't care if communications is out, I want to know what that was! Get me a communication bot now! Get me surveillance now! I want to see what that was and if its more slaves messing around with rocket packs again, I'm using some body's chassis for target practice!'
--"No static on our coms, just you guys topside. Incindius, I'm pinging my location so you can Tomboy will be able to locate us. We have some pipes headed in the same direction we are going to investigate so we are following them."--
Onix quickened up a little following the pipes
"We are getting close. Let's recon before backup arrives."
+++COMM+++ "Be advised everyone, Pointblank is at the surveillance station. Sounds like he's not too happy about what we've been up to. Sounds like he might start killing any time soon. What was that explosion?" +++COMM+++
+++COMM to Hypershot and Driveby+++ "Driveby, do you have a shot on Pointblank or his little buddy? Hypershot, get ready. We're taking that punk down. Don't fire until I launch an EMP grenade. We might be able to provoke Atlas a little more if we take out another of his top goons." +++COMM+++
