Chapter 1515 – Bullet Sliding
Tang Yaoen sat inside the hall with a bitter expression. Meanwhile Mu Yao was sitting next to him with a smile. Both were looking at Zhao Hai not far away.
Mu Yao was very satisfied with Zhao Hai. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai to block Zhu Gui and also wash out the entire Fireweaver alliance army.
However, even if the situation was perfectly dealt with, Mu Yao still couldn’t help but feel terrified. If it weren’t for Zhao Hai’s instincts to send Mu Yao and the others back first, and if he failed to block Zhu Gui, then what would have happened? If Zhu Gui succeeded in wreaking havoc inside the headquarters then the Hundred Treasures Realm would be finished.
“We’ve been careless!”, Mu Yao couldn’t help but think deep inside. “If it weren’t for Zhao Hai, things would have been dangerous.”
Mu Yao looked at Zhao Hai and then said, “Little Hai, good job. This is another major contribution. Tell me, what reward do you want this time? But please don’t ask me for resources, I don’t have much on me.”
Everyone inside the room couldn’t help but laugh. Zhao Hai smiled and said, “This time, this Junior doesn’t want materials. I just want somebody.”
Mu Yao stared, he raised his eyebrow and asked, “Someone? Did some miss from somewhere attract you? With your status, which woman would neglect you? You can flatter them yourself.”
This caused another round of laughs inside the room. Zhao Hai laughed as well, then he said, “It’s not a woman I want. I want the person Elder Tang Yaoen killed. I want Zhu Gui’s corpse.”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Mu Yao couldn’t help but hesitate for a moment before asking, “You want to turn him into your Undead?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Right, I want to turn him into an Undead and ask him how he managed to make his bullets curve.”
Mu Yao nodded and said, “I initially didn’t plan to give you Zhu Gui’s body. In any case, he’s an Immortal Expert. His dignity has to be preserved. But since you specifically asked for it, then I’ll leave him to you. If you get the method to curve bullets, make sure to give us a copy.”
Zhao Hai nodded. Mu Yao turned his head to Tang Yaoen who was still fuming. Tang Yaoen snorted and said, “If he dared show his face next time, I’ll make sure to kill him right away. What? Little Hai wants Zhu Gui’s body? Give it to him.”
Tang Yaoen harrumphed and said, “He’s buried in the back mountain, you dig him up yourself.”
Zhao Hai smiled and didn’t mind Tang Yaoen’s anger. He nodded and said, “Elder Mu, if there’s nothing else, I’ll be in Yan Planet. If something happens, just send me a message.”
Mu Yu nodded and said, “Then we won’t be disturbing you. We still have to wait for the enemy’s response. If they don’t send a lot of troops, then we can deal with it on our own. But if they do send a lot, we’ll call you over.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he gave Mu Yao and the others a salute before turning around and leaving. Mu Yu followed behind Zhao Hai. After leaving the hall, Mu Yu turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, you can make your own personal artifacts while in Yan Planet. In any case, the materials there can no longer be used by the world. By the way, how did you escape from Zhu Gui this time?”
Zhao Hai forced a smile and said, “Why would I escape. That fellow got terrified upon seeing my Faith Power. I reckon it wouldn’t be long before everyone in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield would know that I have Faith Power. Trouble might come for me.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu also sighed and said, “Rest assured, I’ll talk to Master about this. You are a hero of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Master can cover for you. Don’t worry much about it. Having Faith Power here in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield isn’t that strange.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright, then I’m leaving. If you have something to say, just send me a message. As soon as I return to Yan Planet, I’ll continue recycling materials and making rifles. Then I’ll equip my Undead with them.”
When Mu Yu heard Zhao Hai, his eyes lit up as he said, “That’s a good idea. You have so many Undead. If they are equipped with rifles, then your combat power would increase.”
Zhao Hai smiled before waving goodbye to Mu Yu. Then he went to the back mountain and soon found Zhu Gui’s grave. Fortunately, it hasn’t been long since Zhu Gui. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to turn him into a useful Undead. What surprised Zhao Hai was the fact that Zhu Gui was buried along with his rifle.
There’s no need to mention that Zhu Gui’s rifle was a treasure. It was much better than the rifles used by Zhao Hai right now. However, Tang Yaoen and the others actually didn’t keep it and instead buried it alongside Zhu Gui. It seems like Immortal Experts really do respect the dignity of their peers.
However, Zhao Hai wasn’t as polite as them. He immediately turned Zhu Gui into an Undead and sent him to the Space. The rifle was also taken away. Fortunately, Tang Yaoen also didn’t take the bullets. These things would be very useful for Zhao Hai.
After dealing with Zhu Gui, Zhao Hai went to the transmission formation to be sent to Yan Planet. The person operating the Transmission Formation was a Severed Soul Expert, but he was still very polite to Zhao Hai. The two had small talk before Zhao Hai was teleported to Yan Planet.
White light flashed before Zhao Hai appeared on Yan Planet. Along with Zhao Hai, Laura and the others also went out of the Space. Zhao Hai smiled and said, “How is it? Didn’t you want to go out? Let’s explore Yan Planet together.”
When they heard Zhao Hai, Laura and the others were stunned. They looked at him in surprise. Then Laura looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Brother Hai, can this work? What if we get found out?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s fine. I can just say that I met you all back in the World of Cultivation and then came to pick you up.”
Laura looked at Zhao Hai and said, “But we still need to interrogate Zhu Gui and also research his weapon.”
Zhao Hai knew that Laura was nervous, so she said this. It has been too long since they went out of the Space. This caused Zhao Hai to be sad. He couldn’t help but blame himself for not taking them out earlier.
Zhao Hai took a deep breath and said, “It’s fine, we can do all these things outside. We can also have Cai’er take care of everything else. Let’s go see the junk mountains.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Laura and the other smiled. Then they nodded and followed Zhao Hai to explore Yan Planet.
To be honest, Yan Planet didn’t have the best environment. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have become a dumping ground. However, this doesn’t have any effect on Zhao Hai. Although Laura and the others didn’t focus too much on their cultivation, they still ate rich foods from the Space. They had already reached the Nascent Soul Stage. Climates like the one in Yan Plant no longer affect them.
Together with Laura and the others was Mo Sheng. This young man had been following Zhao Hai practically all the time. But in the previous battle, Zhao Hai returned him to the Space because of how dangerous it was.
Although the environment wasn’t very good, Laura and the others were still very happy to stroll outside. It was only Cai’er who was left to manage things inside the Space. But this wasn’t a problem for her.
Zhao Hai didn’t accompany the women and just let them play on their own. He was currently recycling the trash materials for the Space.
Cai’er interrogated Zhu Gui about the method to curve bullets. As it turns out, in addition to his technique, the modifications to his rifle also contributed to curving the bullets.
In order to increase the firing distance and accuracy of Zhao Hai’s rifles, its barrel needed to have rifling inside. The rifling would allow the bullet to spin. Not only would this increase the travel distance of the bullet, it would also increase its accuracy. Additionally, bullets fired through this barrel would be more lethal.
On the other hand, the rifling on Zhu Gui’s rifle was somewhat special. Ordinary rifles would have rifling from the beginning of the barrel to the end. Meanwhile, Zhu Gui’s rifle only had rifling on the back half of the barrel. There’s no rifling on the front half.
Since only the first half had rifling on it, when the bullet is shot out, the user could move the rifle accordingly in order to curve it. Naturally, to successfully curve a bullet, countless hours of practice would be needed. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be very useful to curve a bullet if it doesn’t hit the target.
Besides the different rifling on the barrel, the bullet used was also different. The powder inside the bullet was made to combust slower but still pack a lot of strength. But at the same time, in order to ignite this powder, more energy needed to be used. In this case, the trigger of the rifle was also modified. Not only was it made of better materials, its force transmission is also special. Normally, the force used to pull the trigger doesn’t affect how hard the bullet would be hit. After all, it was the hammer connected to a spring that would hit the bullet, not the trigger.
However, on the modified rifle, the force of the trigger reflects on the force applied on the bullet. The greater the pressure applied to the trigger, the greater the force on the bullet. A normal Severed Soul Expert wouldn’t have the strength to ignite the primer on Zhu Gui’s bullet. So even if this idea gets revealed, Severed Soul Experts wouldn’t be able to make use of it.
The method of curving bullets was named Bullet Sliding by the Fireweavers. This method included the barrel design, trigger design, the powder compound, rifle techniques, levels of strength, and many others. All of them were collectively referred to as Bullet Sliding.
Zhao Hai was astounded by the sophistication the Fireweavers did to their rifles. At the same time, Zhao Hai didn’t bother transferring this information into a jade slip. He believed that even if Mu Yao and the others got a hold of this method, they wouldn’t let the people of the Hundred Treasures Realm practice it. This was because it would take too much time to master.
At this time, the Hundred Treasures Realm were still novices when it came to rifles. They never fully understood the rifles, so it would be impossible for them to study Bullet Sliding. As for the compound used for the bullets, they can still use it, but only as artillery shells.
For Zhao Hai, the formula of the powder was very useful. With this new formula, the ability of his cannons would increase.
As for Bullet Sliding, Zhao Hai didn’t intend to learn it. He wasn’t planning on using the rifles in the long term. As for giving this method to the Undead, he thought of it. But without the special powder, the efficacy of the technique would plummet. Moreover, this technique was only meant to be used once; to catch the enemy off-guard, making it very hard for them to defend.
This type of technique wasn’t useful for the Undead. The Undead relied on their numbers in order to win. They would go out in several hundred thousand and overwhelm the enemy. With this much bullets flying in the air, there really wasn’t any use for curved bullets.
It can be said that Bullet Sliding wasn’t very useful for Zhao Hai. It wasn’t as good as acquiring Zhu Gui outright. Zhu Gui was an Immortal Expert, so he would be a huge asset for the battlefield. With Zhu Gui in hand, Zhao Hai has gained yet another ace in his sleeve. Moreover, Zhao Hai discovered that Zhu Gui was giving him a much denser Faith Power compared to Severed Soul-level Undead.
As for Zhu Gui’s experiences in attaining Immortality, Zhao Hai didn’t bother to ask. In any case, he has Faith Power, so his path ahead was extremely free. The biggest gain to Zhao Hai was Zhu Gui himself. The things Zhu Gui knew were practically of no use to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai felt very content. After receiving Zhu Gui, he had his Undead refine their rifle technique by themselves. In addition to cultivating, Zhao Hai also continued to recycle the trash materials and ended up receiving new metal plants. Although these metal plants were of a different kind, the Space wasn’t able to analyze them just yet. Zhao Hai didn’t mull over it for long as he just planted metal plants and moved on.
As the waste materials decreased, Zhao Hai discovered less and less new ore. However, Zhao Hai didn’t stop and kept working to recycle the materials. Naturally, the materials he received in the Space was a lot. This would be reserved for future use. Although it was possible to use the ores inside the Space, Zhao Hai still stockpiles some resources. This was because he felt that using the resources grown by the Space was akin to destroying it. And that was the last thing he wanted to do.
Laura and the others explored the planet before returning to Zhao Hai’s side. They chatted amongst themselves clearly enjoying the experience.
Zhao Hai didn’t say anything as he just gave the women a smile. Zhao Hai liked seeing them like this. In his mind, they didn’t deserve being cooped up inside the Space all the time.
