Maverick raced up to the front along with the rest of the team, eager to see some action as he had been hiding out here for ages, waiting for the Raiders to show up.
Once in position, he looked through the scope of his Photon Burst Rifle in the direction of the signals. There was no visible targets and nothing was moving. "Why aren't they attacking?" He wondered out loud as a general question and then took another look at his orbital beacon relay.
Torque's shot didn't produce any results. No one came running out and no return shots were fired.
*com*"It has to be cloakers, just not the kind the simulation threw at us. All the signals could be a ruse. We had only a few signals before we were attacked, but now they might as well be invisible to both our orbital beacon and to our optics."*com*[
Quickshot kept an eye out for another flash
*com*"What if me an Torque tried flanking that position. We can move easier than you guys while cloaked."*com*

When Max Convoy heard Valkyrie say Aqualec was down, he began to stir. "Aqualec... no. Aww slag, no!"
Ratchet began to protest when Max Convoy began to get to his feet, but the Raider leader just waved him off dispite his injuries. *com*"Quickshot... make your move. If that sniper is still active when we engage the group ahead of us, we have no chance for survival. Once you and Torque have dealt with them, head back and attack the group of signals from the rear."*com*
Max Convoy began to join the others up head. Maverick looked over and saw their leader looking down at Aqualec's body. With the usually strict commander doing away with com name, Maverick knew that Max was in a bad place right now.
Max Convoy then looked at his troops. "All right, follow me." The injuried leader, moving slow due to his wounds, began to move forward to take lead.
Quickshot transformed his battle pistol away and commed directly to Torque
*com*"Lets make like ghosts, and haunt some Decepticons"*com*
Quickshot made his way off of his perch carefully, not wanting to reveal himself to any lurking Decepticons playing the same game he was playing. He moved across the open area between cover swiftly, but taking care again not to make any noticeable disturbances to give away his movement. He moved silently around a pile of debris to hide him from the sniper position.

As Torque and Quickshot moved in, they could see the weapon that took down Aqualec.
From a pile of trash, the long barrel of a rifle stuck out. It remained still, as it wasn't moving about trying to track any targets. Upon a closer inspection, it would be seen that the rifle barrel was old and tarnished as if it hadn't been cared for in years. It was no Nuller ray that a sniper would used, but none the less it was an older weapon of destructive capabilities.
+++COMM+++ "Raider 5 to Raider Leader. We've found the enemy sniper's weapon. Its old. Very old. Some kind of musket from the looks of it. And it hasn't been cared for in years from the looks of it." +++COMM+++
Torque edged closer, taking a better look at the weapon, the caution crept into his mind.
"Better not get too close to it, it might be booby-trapped." He whispered to Quickshot.

The barrel of the sniper rifle then moved. Not to take aim, but more of an arkward twitch as if it was bumped. It did it again then remained still.
Ahead of the group, the orbital signal began to pick up very slow movement. The mass of what appeared to be bodies still remained close together, hardly getting into position to attack the smaller group of Raiders.

The mine flew out and entered the opening. An explosion was heard and the barrel of the sniper broke in half and rolled down the hill of scrap. Smoke was now seen and nothing else. No retaliation from any Decepticons.
The signals ahead of the team hardly moved even when the explosion went off. No attacks or any signs of aggressive moment towards the Raiders.

"No movement from any of those signals and Quickshot and Torque took made a move on the snipers. I don't like it." Commented Maverick.
"Well what would you like? I say we make a move, I wan to empty my scrapmaker into some Decepticons." Replied Powerplay.
Hearing Powerplay's comment, a feeling of dread came over Max Convoy. "Raiders stand by and cover me. I have an feeling I know who's hiding. Torque and Quickshot, comfirm your kill."
Max Convoy slowly moved towards the hill make of scrap where the signals were coming from. As silently as the large mech come move, Max crept in and took a chance at getting a look at who was hiding. He got his answer -
- as soon as he came face to face with about a hundred Emptys. All damaged and in need of energon.
