Chapter 982: Gustav Takes Command
Author's Note: Unedited Chapters
"Two hundred thousand?"
"Are you sure you're not mistaken?"
"We're only around ten thousand on this wall,"
Voices of panic could he heard all around.
Gustav only voiced it out low but it had already spread across the wall quickly from the others who were exclaiming in shock.
At the same moment Gustav leaped into the air with his hands outstretched.
A milky colored glow appeared on his arm as he stretched them out.
Thooom! Thooom! Thooom!
b.a.l.l.s of milky colored light shot out across the place and landed on the ground up ahead.
The instant the landed on the ground, they expanded intensely disintegrating the surroundings and everything they touched.
The corpses that were about to rise were disintegrated as these b.a.l.l.s of light expanded and even got rid of the trees and vegetation across a radius of three thousand feet.
The officers who were standing on the wall were hyped up by this sudden attack of Gustav that had just practically incinerated the environment.
"Focus on destroying them completely and leaving no body parts left!" Gustav yelled out as wings sprouted out from his back.
The others on the walls let out a battle cry as attacks began to fly forward.
Those who had fire based abilities or practically any bloodlines with abilities similar to disintegration began working on making sure the beaten down corpses of the infected were gotten rid of.
They had began sending attacks out before the infected even arrived hundreds of feet before the wall.
Gustav flew forward as a reddish hilted katana with electrifying arcs swimming around it, appeared in his grasp.
The infected were still rus.h.i.+ng forward with speed and some were now around five hundred feet away from the walls.
Gustav raised the katana as he arrived at a particular spot in the air and swung downwards with intensity.
A ma.s.sive red arc travelled downwards with intensity and left a gigantic gash in the ground upon making contact.
The ground trembled intensely as cracks appeared all over the ground began sinking in even more.
A deep gash like pit had been left in the ground from this attack, that covered a distance of more than four thousand feet.
This pit created from Gustav's attack was at least one hundred and fifty feet deep and it had surrounded this part of the wall, around five hundred feet ahead.
The infected who were rus.h.i.+ng forward without thinking began to fall into the pit Gustav's attack had created.
"Aim your attacks towards the pit!" Gustav yelled out.
The officers on the walls let out a battle cry again in response as they began firing attacks at the pit ahead.
Gustav didn't stop there. He flew towards the west side and performed the same action again, leaving very wide gash like pits on the ground several hundred feet before the wall.
He yelled for the officers to aim their attacks there as the infected began to fall in.
This slowed the infected down by a whole lot as the ones with normal human size fell in.
While they kept falling in, numerous attacks ranging from fireb.a.l.l.s to blueish energy b.a.l.l.s, to lightning bolts to dark energy strikes, landed in the hole making all sorts of explosions to ring out.
Some of the other infected who had mutated to the point where they were even more ma.s.sive than a tree were able to scale over.
A ma.s.sive ash colored hand suddenly phased past Gustav's left as he moved to the side to dodge in mid air.
Gustav slashed the katana upwards in response causing the immensely long arm to get cleaved in two.
It let out a toxic ashy colored gas at the area Gustav cut off, causing him to dive upwards with speed..
Numerous more hands were flying upwards from below causing Gustav to dodge repeatedly as he tried to escape the toxins.
'Using energy discharge would be good in this situation but it would affect the wall too... I can only use attacks that don't cover a large radius,' Gustav thought internally as he peeked downwards.
He spotted the infected which had no less than twenty seven arms protruding from his body. He flipped repeatedly in the air as he dodged more of the arms before diving downwards with speed.
Gustav swung his katana towards the right as he descended to a point.
Another reddish arch slashed forward, ripping the tree sized infected in two and even destroying tens of infected behind.
Greenish b.a.l.l.s of Toxin began flying towards Gustav before he could dash upwards again.

Gustav suddenly stretched his left hand towards the side, causing the green b.a.l.l.s of toxin to start flying back in the direction it came from.
It blasted through multiple infected as it arrived back in the mouth of the infected who spat it out.
The head of the infected got blasted to pieces.
Gustav landed on the ground and looked forward.
The entire vicinity was crowded with infected to the point that he couldn't even see s.p.a.ces in between them as they hurried forward with blood shot eyes.
Bang! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Explosions rang out across the place as the attacks from the officers atop the walls kept landing and destroying hundred of infected.
However even with the number of infected they were destroying by the second, it still looked as if the swarm of infected were unaffected.
The sheer numbers that were left made it look like their efforts were in vain.
Gustav hand tightened around the katana as blood flowed down his right hand.
'Might be the best time to make use of that temporary energy doubling card,' Gustav said internally.
The system wasted no time in in using one of the cards Gustav had gotten as a reward according to his will.

'I'll have to keep the katana back in my storage device after this attack,'
