“Sound can do such a thing?”
“Yes, if you look at it when it explodes, you’ll be blinded and you’ll hear a deafening sound that. Both of these combined will disorient.”
The thing I was going to use was a special hand grenade called an “M84 Stun grenade[*1]” also known as a flashbang. For my basic loadout, I always carry two of these, but until now there hasn’t really been a situation where I could use it since every battle had been in the open. This time though, the enemies were in a big room, so I thought I would try using this to see if they would effect monsters.
The Flashbang is meant to temporarily stun the opponent’s sight with the flash and hearing with the bang, which is around 175 decibels. Because of the MMO’s P.v.P had gear such as head googles and earpads, it wouldn’t affect the player very much unless their character didn’t wear those, but this would be considered PvE or Player vs enemy. So of course, they’re not wearing any sort of protection for their eyes and ears so that should make it quite effective against them.
Ashley and I approached the entrance to the room while I explained the flashbang to her. I could hear a kind of bizarre voice coming from the room and with the entrance to the room on the right side of the pathway, Ashley had to wait behind me as I took cover right next to the entranceway.
“1.. 2.. 3.. 11 monsters. Appears that they’re all ordinary goblins “
In my head, I confirmed the number of monsters that were in the room; cross-referencing it with the number of red dots on my Map’s Display. I peeked inside and saw that they all were huddled close to one of the walls, resting. They appeared to be socializing, but I couldn’t understand what they were saying. Since I confirmed my targets, I had Ashley cover her ears while I put on my earpads and took a flashbang from my grenade pouch on my belt.
Doubled checked that Ashley had covered her ears then I pulled the pin from the top of the grenade and threw it into the room aiming for the center of the group of goblins. There were many types of grenades in the MMO, but most of them would explode after around three seconds. Bang~!. I heard it explode and could see a faint flash from the entranceway so I rushed in, quickly taking aim. When the goblins came into sight, some were standing up and some were huddled on the floor, but all of them had their hands covered their ears and their eyes closed
The mouths were open like they were screaming, but no voices came out. As I didn’t know how long they would be stunned, I pulled the trigger, dispatching them one by one with the P90. Because I was afraid that one would lash out, I kept my distance at the expense of accuracy. Because of that, I spent the fifty rounds in the box-magazine and switched to my Five-SeveN sidearm, finishing off the goblins I hadn’t killed yet.
” I’ve never seen magic like that could that… I felt the air tremble and I still heard the explosion even though I covered my ears. To be able to deal with so many monsters, so quickly…”
Ashley, who came in after I killed all the goblins, said towards me. One by one the fallen goblins dissipated, leaving behind their mana stones. After I collected all of them I turned to Ashley
“Well, it’s that I came up with a Plan of Attack as soon as I had enough information. I simply made small adjustments to my plan of attack to suit the situation I found my enemies in, thus allowing me to do this alone.”
“Well… Yes, but please do be careful.”
“Yes, I will. Well, let us go on.”
With that, we continued on and made our way to the second level. We continued the same plan. Detecting the monsters first, let them come to us and then dispatch them quickly before they can reach us. Thus after finishing up this labyrinth, we walked back to the surface. After today, it would take a while for monsters to respawn so we didn’t encounter anymore after we cleared it.
