I just got shot in the head for my can o' beans.
Well, there may have been a little bit more to it.
I worked my way into the southern airfield. Three dead players were around the helo (quite a few mods on this server) and I passed two dead in the field. As my truck passed the little bird, I started taking fire. I had it floored and the hangar was but a few yards away. Two zombies were in the hangar and I thought I ran them down, but I still had two by the door when I got turned around. The incoming hostile fire stopped. My new friend wasn't in the field, at least. Maybe he had run out of ammo.
I did a loot-n-scoot gaining a can of beans, a can of beans & franks, and a soda. I started in the back of the hangar to have max speed with my truck. He hadn't run out of ammo.
I tried running the zombies over. Couldn't tell the outcome.
I drove around the hangars but saw no one, taking fire the entire time. The truck was shot (tires were gone, body was showing a fair amount of damage) and I ran down the last side. I like the peek function (Q and E) for looking around corners. No ping, ping, ping.
. I risked a run to the little bird without stopping to loot the bodies. I got in the chopper and saw that the engine was shot (literally?) and it was out of gas.
Great. Got to the choppa. Gonna die.
I got out and ran for the wall. No fire. I flee to the other end of the airfield where a tall building stands. I catch a glimpse of another human in the bushes, but we're moving in opposite directions. Was that him? Had he been shooting from the tower? Maybe, but he hadn't shot at me in the bushes.
When I got to the tower I came upon a scene of slaughter (38 out of 50 on a server). Three dead were in the door. One in the room beyond. I heard nor saw anyone living. My health, hunger, bloodlevel, and thirst all sated on the loot just left behind, I began to move upstairs. Blood leaked from the ceiling (glitch, but kinda dramatic at the time). I don't know how long you bleed in this game. Only one of three bodies were still bleeding. M4 with ACOG and one mag, another bloodbag. One more level to go.
It's empty. Some ammo, and a can of beans is on the floor and I scoop them up. Inventory full.
I have the ammo, so I decide to top off my hunger as I hate to waste food. Then I'll pick up that other can of beans and GTFO.
Movement out of the corner of my eye. Someone is on the ladder outside the window. He goes right past without noticing my still form...I thought.
When he reaches the roof of the level below, he opens fire. I'm prone and far enough back that remain unhurt.
He has friends. The text I'm reading tells me that they just got here. Someone sniped one of them. The massacre below me was unbelievable.
And, Oh, we have the bastard trapped upstairs.
Wasn't me. Not that they're going to believe me.
Some more texting and someone runs up the stairs and opens up on me.
Then he walks behind me and shoots me some more.
And then that last can of beans disappears off the floor.
