Metalingus began to use his claws to crawl faster across the floor and hid behind some cover. He took a moment and found his center. He clipped his guns back to his forearms and listened to laser fire heading his teams way. He waited for an opening and stood quickly raising his arms and firing towards the guards before heading back down for cover.
Deadbolt swore loudly and began pouring fire into the OCF that were on the other side of the door he'd just blown open. He kept shifting his aim and shooting back at the OCF who had been chasing them. Deadbolt was aiming for kill-shots, this was no time to incapacitate, it was combat.
+++COMM+++ "For the love of Primus! Hardstrike, things are getting pretty rough up here! We sure could use a hand right about now!" +++COMM+++
Deadbolt cursed again as his weapon started to overheat. He stopped firing to allow it to cool down. He got to his feet and sprinted for better cover, skidding behind a large metal sculpture.
Uplink fired shots at any random OCF she could see. But her aim was off due to her previous dagger attacks and she was trying to catch her breath.
***IC*** Reasonably I suppose. But these bots just won't let up. We've got to move faster if we want to stay alive because at this rate I don't think we're going to make it out of the building. ***IC***

Icognito looked at Hardstrike in disbelief after way he said about Deadbolt but refrained from saying anything. 'Umm Yeah ok, so what are we gonna do about our current problem?'
With the group of OCF guards surrounding the two Renegades in the hanger, there was a stand off. The Renegades were outgunned but hiding behind fuel tanks, no one dared to open fire on them. But it was only a matter of time before the Renegades had to surrender.
Incognito had an idea. He quickly turned invisible and kicked out the fuel tank that was in front of him. As the fuel rolled out and got close to the OCFs, Incognito fired on it and then jumped at Hardstrike to knock him down. The fuel tank blew up, knocking down several OCF troops.
Incognito became visible. 'Lets transform and motivate!'
Computic yelled at Quickshot as more laserbolts came flying pass too close for comfort at the Renegades. 'Quickshot! Can you call your trailer to you?'
"Awww slag, I knew you'd get us into trouble!", quipped Hardstrike making a run for it. "let's get out of here before everything else in this hangar explodes!", exclaimed Hardstrike and transformed to his vehicle mode hitting the gas hard and fast, not even bothering to look back to see if the OCF guards were recovering...
Deadbolt moved to a better piece of cover. He'd had a couple of close calls on the way.
+++IC+++ "Right, I could use a distraction. Take the focus off me. I've got a plan. I'm getting into that factory using my invisibility, but if I get too close to those OCF by the factory, they might see a trace of me." +++IC+++
With that, Deadbolt activated his invisibility and faded from sight. He stood, and in a crouching run, made his way closer to the factory door.

'Give him the cover he needs! Use your EMP grenades!' Computic threw two EMPs in the direction they had come from before randomly firing at the OCFs troops chasing after them.
Incognito transformed and drove after Hardstrike as more laser fire followed the pair. 'Maybe they wouldn't have discovered us in the first place if you weren't whining like a GOBOT!'
Atlas finally caught up to the OCFs that had chased down the escaping Renegades. He stood their, watching from a distance, over looking the fire fight even at the risk to himself getting shot by a stray blast. Neuroblade came to his side. 'Master! Come away from the fight before you are injuried!'
'No one! No One! NO ONE COMES IN TO MY TOWER AND ASSAULTS ME! I am ruler of my domain and these fools and their allies outside shall know my might! These ones shall be the first to feel the king's strength that I wield! Activate the Omega Guard!'

As Quickshot's trailer left the ship, it sped through the hanger, the same hanger that Hardstrike and Incognito were escaping, passing some very confused OCF troops.
Hardstrike and Incognito, driving down the hallway came to a left and right passage way. Hardstrike turned left and Incognito turned right to take cover from the explosion. Both transformed and waited
The fuel tank that Incognito caused to explode caused other fuel tanks to ignite and erupt. Quickshot's trailer exited the hanger, leaving behind the sudden eruption of fuel.
Hardstrike and Incognito looked down the hall and saw Quickshot's trailer coming down at them. The trailer passed them by, leaving the two Renegade with no other option but to exchange expressions of confusion and shrugged shoulders. They then saw the Renegade sign on the back of the trailer.
'Follow it'! Said the pair in unison as the trailer entered a large cargo lift (that would take it up to the factory) The two Renegades transformed into their alternate forms and caught the lift just in time to ride with the trailer.
Deadbolt managed to sneak past the three OCF that were blocking the factory door. He was about to slip into the factory when he grinned rather menacingly, had anyone been able to see him. He turned to face the OCF and noticed the one in the middle was further back than the others. In a flash, Deadbolt reached out and grabbed the thug's head and twisted it hard, with all his strength, snapping all kinds of vital componants. Deadbolt turned to his right and kicked the OCF in the left knee joint, snapping it. He then fired a number of shots point blank, taking out the OCF and shorting out his invisibility. Deadbolt spun to his left and brought his rifle to bear on the remaining OCF, who was now turning his attention to Deadbolt.
Deadbolt was quicker. He fired another three explosive darts as the OCF fired. Deadbolt's shots all connected with the OCF's chest as his opponant's shot grazed his side. After a very short delay, the three darts detonated, removing a large chunk of the OCF. Deadbolt cringed as his armour had charred.
Before any of the other OCF could make their move, Deadbolt quickly entered the factory and began searching for a control panel to shut down the machinery.

Deadbolt could see several panel. Each of them turned on, lite up and each with a various about of screens provide a graphic read out of their function.
Computic saw that Deadbolt had taken down the OCFs that were blocking there path into the factory. 'Lets go!' With that, the communication officer threw the last of his EMP grenades for cover, transformed into his jet mode and flew for the doors. Landing on the outside, he provided cover for the rest. 'Deadbolt! Find something heavy to put across this door way to buy us some time!'
Close to where Deadbolt was, a engine for what could be for a small space shuttle laid close by. He would be able to pull it towards the door.
As the rest of the Renegades made their way in, all the panels that Deadbolt had looked at before began to shut down and the sound of machines powering down could be heard through out the factory.
Enduring the elevator music and lack of space inside the elevator, due to the Quickshot's trailer. Hardstrike and Incognito tried to get a bearing on where the others could be. 'Computic isn't responding. I guess we just follow this thing once the doors open?'
Deadbolt spotted the engine after Computic instructed him to block the doors. He positioned himself so the engine was between him and the door. He took a small run-up and slammed into the engine, pushing it with all his might. There was a loud screeching as the engine started to slide into place. Deadbolt could feel his gears straining as he pushed. After a short while, the engine was in place.
Deadbolt stepped away from the engine and held his rifle, ready to bring it into action if needed.
"That should buy us some time. What now?"
