The mech crashed through the trees. Splintered wood, branches and trunks scattering everywhere.

"Where is it?"

"I'm sorry barnes, the trees are interfering with the scanner."

"Godammit! If she gets a lock on us we're screwed!"

Lucy was eyeballing this one. She powered up the railgun, stabilising pylons shooting into the ground beneath her feet.

The radio hissed in Barnes' helmet. "Duck."

The mech span to face the signal source as Lucy fired... It exploded in a shower of metal shards as the supersonic flechettes tore through the mechs' armour.

"Got you. It ain't called a boomgun for nothing Barnes."
