Oh My God! Earthlings are Insane! - Chapter 437
As for the invaders, they could be easily arranged. Agricultural University had a lot of monster domestication and artificial breeding projects. Unfortunately, not all monsters could be successfully tamed and become pets or cattle, especially creatures with low intelligence, like pests. No matter how they tried to modify them, it was just too easy for them to regain their wild nature.
Through his connections with Gu Jianbo and Ning Shewo, Meng Chao managed to get a bunch of monsters that could not be domesticated.
Then, he got a few Nightmarish Beasts from the monster research center. They had gone through unknown mutations during the modification process and could not be controlled by humans. They were brought in as the “boss” monsters.
This “monster invasion” was definitely stronger than the most intense invasion Blessed Heavenly Garden had ever faced.
Since they believed in the principle of everything needing to be tested through actual combat, the residents all stayed in their apartments and made preparations for war.
This was related to their families and their lives. Besides, they had their defenses modified and upgraded as an example. The residents did not have to spend a lot of money for it, and all of them were very grateful to Meng Chao, which was why they were willing to pay their full attention to ensure that the monsters witnessed the strength of Blessed Heavenly Garden’s new defenses.
For safety’s sake, Meng Chao also invited his tutor and tutoress, Gu Jianbo and Li Yingzi, to come to his apartment to eat as well as observe the practical test.
He also invited a group of members from the Broken Star Club and Blue Home to be guests in Blessed Heavenly Garden.
And with himself and Zhao Feixuan, who were both in Heaven Realm, they could ensure that not a single monster would hurt any of the residents.
The practical test officially started at 09:00.
The first batch of monsters released was a dense wave of Black Beetles.
This was a black insect swarm with sharp mouth parts and mandibles. Some of them could even spit fire. They rushed fiercely at the apartments.
The apartments had long since been fortified. The windows and doors were shut by alloy armor.
But it was different from the past. The sides of the roads also had a lot of erected steel plates. There were a few gaps intentionally left between them to lead the insects into the traps that the humans had long since set up.
Those were all huge traps.
Usually, they were pits sealed shut with steel plates, and when the residents stood on them, they could be used as squares for cultivation. In battle, the steel plates would be removed, and the residents would then place the food the pests loved the most in the pits. Then, lights would flicker at a rapid pace, infrasounds that could not be heard with the human ear would sound, and interference from special magnetic fields would lure the inferior creatures into the traps.
When a large number of Black Beetles jumped into the pits, the pipes hidden above the pits immediately activated, and a large amount of sparkling adhesive liquid gushed out.
When this adhesive liquid came into contact with air, its adhesive properties instantly increased by several degrees. Then, in just a few minutes, it coagulated and glued a large number of Black Beetles until they looked like conjoined twins. No matter what, they could not be separated.
While monsters were evolving, humans were also evolving. With the power of science, they evolved at one hundred times the speed of monsters.
The adhesive liquid was a superglue made artificially by a bioweapon company after they researched the Stone Statue Fungus from the underground caves. It was much more suitable to fight against large amounts of insect swarms and rat hordes compared to any other weapon.
The Black Beetles that were stuck together started struggling fiercely. Their shells scratched together, causing metallic screeches. Even so, they could not get away.
A few times, really strong Black Beetles managed to tear apart their companion or their shell with one vicious pull, but before it could climb out of the pit, it was already partially dead.
In the end, some of the Black Beetles managed to break free of the superglue, but what awaited them was a huge net made of superalloy. It came charging at them from every angle.
Once all the Black Beetles were captured, the second round of superglue was fired.
Now, all the Black Beetles were stuck together and rooted to the spot like rocks. Not a single one of them could even dream about running.
This method not only allowed them to save up on ammunition, but also ensured the quality of the Black Beetles. It maximized the number of materials they could harvest from them.
When the testers saw that the Black Beetles had already fallen into the trap, they immediately released the second wave—a monster horde consisting of Demonic Halberd Pigs and Iron-armored Rhinoceroses.
These giants were more than five meters long, and their skins were covered in osteoma or spikes. They were not normal wild monsters.
Instead, they were monster armies developed by Agricultural University’s biochemical course and the monster research center through gene modification. They had chips implanted in their heads because humans hoped that they could use them to fight.
As long as someone controlled their chips remotely and sent electric currents at special frequencies to the central nervous system, they could control them to carry out simple tasks.
The intelligence of mammals was naturally much higher than that of insect-type monsters.
They completely ignored the traps the humans opened up for them and marched into the depths of Blessed Heavenly Garden without even looking around.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
When the monster horde charged forward with a swagger, more than one hundred disc-like objects shot out of the ground and started spinning at a high speed four to five meters above ground.
Bright light flashed and deafening booms rose. The discs shattered, and countless fine shards with sharp edges stabbed into the Demonic Halberd Pigs and Iron-armored Rhinoceroses’ at a speed faster than bullets. They left multiple holes in their bodies, and in an instant, the monsters were covered in blood.
These were anti-monster mines modified based on anti-tank mines.
They only activated when a really huge weight was applied on them.
They were buried in the main roads of the residential area, but no matter how much the children jumped around on them, there was no worry of them detonating.
Demonic Halberd Pigs and Iron-armored Rhinoceroses were all strength-type monsters with tough skins and high defenses, so even if their skins were torn and thousands of wounds appeared on them, it would not affect their fighting strength. Instead, it would push them into an even more frenzied state.
However, Zhao Feixuan added a lot of crystals that were like glass powder and metal powder into the anti-monster mines. He also added military-grade alkaloids made of materials from chili and other solanaceae-type plants. The materials were refined so many times that they were so spicy that they had a Scoville unit of two million.
Take this as a reference, the level of spiciness a normal human could tolerate was around 30,000 Scoville units.
This powder was mixed with super capsaicin and was really light and sharp. With the power of the impact, all of it blew into the Iron-armored Rhinoceroses and Demonic Halberd Pigs’ eyes, nostrils, and ear canals.
In an instant, blood poured out of the monsters’ eyes and nostrils. The burn was so strong that they felt like dying.
Even Nightmarish Beasts had a hard time making their corneas and nasal mucosa as strong as metal.
The monsters’ vision and smell were impaired, and most of their fighting strength was gone.
When the super spicy alkaloid invaded their brains, it even caused them to lose their ability to fight. No matter how the chips stimulated them, they could not group together to advance forward. They even started attacking each other instead.
At that moment, the heavy weapons defense systems hidden in the residential area rose up at a calm pace. They then revealed their savage fangs at the hideous monsters.
The high-voltage electrical towers released deep purple electrical arcs. Each flash of electricity was an attack from a fierce whip. It left bloody wounds on Demonic Halberd Pigs and Iron-armored Rhinoceros. They were so deep that ghastly white bones could be seen.
Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!
The second-hand anti-aircraft guns were modified into automatic gun fortresses. They mercilessly fired a bullet storm and stirred up multiple waves of blood.
In the past, since they had to protect their areas alone and only had limited resources, Dragon Citizens believed firmly in the principle of “one shot, one kill” and even the principle of “bullets are for cowards, you’re only a real man if you use knives.”
But now, once they gained full victory in the northern offense and all sorts of crystal mines and metal mines were developed, the problem of ammunition and replenishment was slowly getting solved. Now, the harsh days where each citizen could only get from three to five cartridges in each battle were long gone and would never return.
Dragon Citizens could finally use their ammunition lavishly to let the monsters understand the true meaning of the name steel army.
Only a small handful of Demonic Halberd Pigs and Iron-armored Rhinoceroses managed to break through the barrage of bullets.
When they dragged their severely wounded bodies that were almost empty of blood and staggered in front of the residents’ apartments, they became the best dummies for the residents to practice their shooting accuracy. The men and women inside their apartment had been waiting for them for a long time.
Laymen watched the fight for the fun, while those who understood what was going on watched for the secrets behind the defenses.
The normal residents could only see that the firepower of their residential area had increased by several levels compared to the past.
But Meng Chao and Meng Yishan, who was a retired soldier, could clearly sense that due to Zhao Feixuan’s careful construction, the firing spots in the residential area, the trenches, forts, the distribution of squares that could allow the enemies to temporarily gather together, and the routes that would allow the enemies to advance had all been optimized through the most scientific methods.
This was to ensure that the attackers would unknowingly be led around by the nose. They would have to walk through the longest possible offensive route set up by the defenders, in which they would also be exposed to the most number of guns. This was the amazing quality of defensive matrices.
As bone-chilling howls rose, three black figures soared into the air outside the residential area.
They were the three Nightmarish Beasts that served as the “boss” monsters.
Meng Chao could not help but break out in cold sweat for his neighbors.
If he attacked, he could definitely easily kill those Nightmarish Beasts.
But he could not always arrive on time whenever the monsters attacked the area.
This was especially so when super zombies and the undead appeared on a large scale. Superhumans had to move between various battlefields, while normal humans had to hold their sabers tightly to defend their homes and their destinies.
‘Will they… be able to protect themselves?’ Meng Chao wondered in his heart.
Soon, he learned the answer.
“Careful! Rocket launcher!”
His little sister’s scream came from the apartment next to his.
It was a weekend, so Bai Jiacao was at home. She insisted on joining the practical test and using a rocket launcher that had just been distributed to each apartment.
Since she was already part of the experimental class of the best high school in the city and had ranked in second place in the whole city during the end-of-term test, as a reward, his father decided to let her use a rocket launcher with ten projectiles.
The rocket launcher had been modified. It was specifically made for indoor use and had smaller flames coming out of the nuzzle.
Even so, the blast caused the door to rattle.
Along with a deafening boom, a rocket dragging a long trail of flames behind it shot at one of the Nightmarish Beasts flying in the air.
That rocket did not rush at the Nightmarish Beast alone.
Almost at the same time, the hundreds of other windows sent out hundreds of rockets to form a murderous formation that was as dense as a meteor shower. They all went at the Nightmarish Beasts from all angles.
This was something Dragon Citizens would do once they had enough resources. After all, all of them had terminal “I don’t have enough firepower” disease.
Usually, firearms would have a hard time killing Nightmarish Beasts, but quantity could have a qualitative change.
There was nothing one hundred rockets could not solve.
If there was, then they just had to use another one hundred of them.
