Chapter 1497 – Weapons Dealer
It was also after he saw this that Zhao Hai understood why the Fireweavers were able to be so coordinated when using rifles but were a mess when using their fire techniques.
Although they also studied this technique, and it included a lot of variations, the Fireweavers didn’t use them much. They were mainly using their rifles during the battle.
Rifles were much more convenient to use. As long as it has bullets, it could kill people. It didn’t even warrant a large amount of spiritual qi and spiritual force. The only thing they needed to have was enough bullets and the rifles would be lethal. Because of this, the Fireweavers began to rely on their rifles and not on their fire control.
Zhao Hai doesn’t object to using the rifles. But he himself wouldn’t use it. The rifles were very strong, but it’s not good to rely on them too much. This wasn’t like Earth where the limits of humans made guns extremely terrifying. In here, once you become strong enough, the rifles would seem like fire sticks.
Zhao Hai wasn’t worried about the same thing happening to him. After all, his rifles would only be used by the Undead. The Undead would practice normally and wouldn’t have to use the rifles. And if Zhao Hai wanted them to cultivate, they would obey, unlike the Fireweavers.
Zhao Hai carefully looked through the fire techniques of the Fireweaver Race. There’s no need to mention how unique it was. First, they would find a flame and then absorb it into their body. Then they would use their spiritual qi to nourish the flame. When they go to battle, they would use these flames and shape them into what they want.
It must be said that this technique needed very strong fire control on behalf of the user. And once the flames were shaped, formations needed to be attached to it so that it could be used as a proper weapon.
Because their flame was nurtured by spiritual qi, it was very flexible and eternally changing. It’s might was also extraordinary.
But it could also be seen from this that the technique wasn’t easy to practice. First, one would need to find a flame, which was difficult. Then they would need to learn how to control the flame. There were many cultivators who use fire-attribute artifacts, but only a small number of them could control fire itself.
And to use it as a weapon, another tedious task needed to be done. After all, the user needs to transform the flame into a tangible form. The formations used needed to be meticulously researched. Mistake wasn’t permitted in using the formations. Therefore, practicing the entire technique wasn’t something that most could do.
For Zhao Hai, this method had some weaknesses. He has Liquid Silver who can transform into whatever he thinks of. It also had its strong point. It could make a barrier outside the Hell King’s Ship that was much better than the flame barrier from before. Because of this, Zhao Hai deemed it worthCai’while to practice the technique.
While practicing, Zhao Hai made a small flame and controlled it on his own. And since he knew how to compress before, it wasn’t difficult to do it to the flame. The difficulty was in controlling the flame. Although the writing was clear, it was difficult in practice. It took about an hour before Zhao Hai could compress the flame and then another five hours in order to control it.
Just as Zhao Hai completed this, Laura and the others were studying the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship and preparing to install cannons on it.
Seeing their appearance, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile. At this time, Cai’er appeared next to Zhao Hai with a rifle in her hand as she handed it over and said, “Young Master, take a look. This is the rifle we managed to make.”
Zhao Hai received the rifle and was stunned. This was because this rifle looked very familiar. It was shorter than the Fireweaver Rifles, but it had a larger magazine. As he looked at it more and more, Zhao Hai felt that he had seen it somewhere else.
He looked at the rifle a couple of times before he could remember! This rifle looked like a Type-81 Rifle! The image became clearer and clearer as he thought of it. Zhao Hai turned to Cai’er and said, “Cai’er, why does this rifle look like a Type-81 Rifle?”
Cai’er smiled and said, “This isn’t a Type-81 rifle, it just came to be like one.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “Alright, you’re free to experiment. Use whatever you want to make them. Even if you draw a cat on the rifles, I wouldn’t care.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Cai’er and the others couldn’t help but chuckle. Zhao Hai looked at her and said, “Right, are Tang Jie’s rifles prepared?”
Cai’er nodded and said, “They’re prepared, rest assured.” Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Then I’ll go out take a look at what’s happening. I’ll pick you up when I see an opportunity.”
Everyone nodded, then Zhao Hai walked out of the Space. But just as he left, he heard Cai’er, “Young Master, come back quick. Mo Sheng woke up.” Zhao Hai stared, then he returned to the Space.
Upon entering the villa, Zhao Hai saw Mo Sheng absentmindedly walking out of his room. It’s clear that he had slept for too long, his mind was still lagging behind.
Naturally, this wasn’t what attracted Zhao Hai’s attention. Zhao Hai discovered that Mo Sheng had gotten stronger. His strength has increased from Nascent Soul to Transcending Tribulation.
But since Mo Sheng broke through inside the Space, there was no lightning tribulation coming for him. Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he waved his hand and washed Mo Sheng’s body with lightning. Jolted by the lightning, Mo Sheng’s mind cleared up. He also received the lightning, making him a true Transcending Tribulation Expert.
Mo Sheng didn’t think so much about his promotion as he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Big Brother, I’m hungry.”
Hearing this, black lines appeared on Zhao Hai’s forehead. With a chuckle, he answered, “Alright, go eat since you’re hungry. Take what you need and return with me.” Mo Sheng immediately turned around and took a cooked chicken from the kitchen and ran back to Zhao Hai’s side. After saying goodbye once more to the laughing women, Zhao Hai flashed out of the Space.
Mo Sheng began eating the chicken when they got out. Looking at Mo Sheng, Zhao Hai understood that this kid was born lucky. Cultivation to Mo Sheng was eating. No wonder he wanted to eat all the time. In any case, the food inside the Space was beneficial. It would be good for Mo Sheng if he reached the Immortal Stage just by eating.
When Zhao Hai came out of his residence, he spotted two people from the Hundred Treasures Realm guarding the entrance. He knew these people, they were quite strong. When the two saw Zhao Hai, one of them immediately said, “Mister, Captain Tang Jie asked for you to see him as soon as you come out.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he smiled and said, “Thanks. I’ve troubled the two of you.”
The two didn’t think much of it as one of them smiled and said, “It’s nothing. Being able to defend Mister’s residence is already an honor.”
Zhao Hai laughed, then he turned his hand and took out two jugs of liquor. Then he handed it over to the two as he said, “I don’t have anything good to give you, so let these two jugs express my thanks. Have a taste.”
The two hastily received the jugs and thanked Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai smiled faintly then flew towards Tang Jie’s residence. Before long, Zhao Hai arrived and saw Tang Jie standing by the door, probably waiting for someone.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but ask, “Brother Tang? What are you doing? Is Big Brother Mu back?”
Tang Jie gave him a bitter look and said, “I’ve been waiting for you. Come in quick. How is it?”
Hearing Tang Jie, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but chuckle as he said, “So it’s that. Don’t worry, it went well. Take a look!” Then he waved his hand and a rifle appeared. When Zhao Hai saw the rifle in his hand, a corner of his mouth couldn’t help but twitch. He just asked Cai’er if the fake rifles were ready, but he didn’t see what they looked like. Now that he saw it, he couldn’t help but bitterly smile. This was because the rifle looked exactly like a type 5 rifle. It made him feel like he went to another country in order to sell weapons.
Although he knew that this was Cai’er’s pranks, he didn’t say anything as he handed the rifle over to Tang Jie. Tang Jie looked at the rifle and saw that it looked different. Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This is the rifle I made in reference. Look here, this is where you put the magazine for the bullets. I only made 50 of these rifles since I lack materials. The bullets used for this rifle are the same as the ones the Fireweavers use. We can use the bullets we got from the Fireweavers for these rifles.”
Tang Jie held the rifle with fascination. Actually, it was different from type 5 rifles. There were no bolts on the rifles, which just suits the environment of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie and said, “You can try it out. There’s a bullet inside it already. Make sure that you don’t hit anybody.”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Tang Jie couldn’t help but laugh. He recalled the form of the Fireweavers as he aimed and took a shot. The bullet shot out and flew a very long distance. Zhao Hai calculated the effective range of the rifle to be 20 thousand meters. Without relying on any treasures and only using a barrier, Transcending Tribulation Experts would die within 15 thousand meters. And if they were within 10 thousand meters, treasures would be broken through.
Shortly after the rifle was fired, the bullet fell back into Tang Jie’s hand. Looking at the bright yellow bullet in his hand, Tang Jie gave a satisfied nod as he said, “With these rifles, we would no longer need to fear the Fireweavers.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Besides the 50 rifles, we also obtained 2000 rifles from the Fireweavers we killed. The only problem we have is the lack of bullets.”
After he said that, Zhao Hai took out a book and handed it over to Tang Jie. Then he said, “This is the method of making the rifles and bullets. Brother Tang can give it to the refiners.”
Tang Jie received the book, then he nodded and said, “Little Hai, thank you. This is another great contribution towards the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Zhao Hai forced a smile and said, “There’s no need to talk about how easy to use these rifles are. But refining them wouldn’t be easy. The rifles have a lot of small components. You need to prepare for it.”
Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai with a strange expression before he laughed and said, “Little Hai, you’re clever, but you can be muddle headed at times. Did you forget what the Hundred Treasures Realm specialize in? The other realms might have trouble making small components, but the Hundred Treasures Realm will find it easy. Hahaha. Rest assured, there won’t be any problem.”
When he heard this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but pat his head. To be honest, he truly forgot about it. The Hundred Treasures Realm was famed for using small artifacts. Naturally, they were skilled in refining small things. He was actually worried about this. He chuckled as he replied, “Brother Tang, I just want to remind you that the rifles are only supporting artifacts. You cannot be too attached to these things. I’ve asked the Fireweaver Undead and learned that they’re very skilled in fire control. Once mastered, it’s much more formidable compared to the rifles. But because the rifles are easy to use, they began to depend on it more and more. They no longer tried to master their fire control. If the Hundred Treasures Realm depend on the rifles too much, it would lose its roots. This gain wouldn’t be worth the loss.”
Tang Jie stared, then his expression turned more and more solemn. After a while, he raised his head and looked at Zhao Hai as he said, “What you said is correct. The rifles might be convenient, but we cannot forget our roots. I will tell the realm about this as soon as possible. But I’ll have to accept these things for now. Big Brother Mu will be back soon.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Actually, I’m thinking of making these rifles bigger and turn them into cannons with large bullets. If I succeed, we’ll have more aces up our sleeves.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Tang Jie’s eyes turn bright as he said, “That would be great. When will it be done?”
Zhao Hai forced a smile and replied, “Brother Tang, this is just an idea for now. This research will take a long time. Moreover, I will need more materials. I lack materials currently to make any progress.”
Tang Jie smiled and said, “Don’t worry about the materials, we’ll prepare them for you. Right, you can go look for the refiners. We need to start on researching these cannons as soon as possible.” Zhao Hai gave him a nod.
