Jerome took advantage of the chaotic enemy and ordered his recon drone to enter the drop ships open door.  At the very least, if it took the door gunners aim high, there would be time to fire himself.

Its powersupply would burst equal to a flash-bang. Not enough to injure, but could really spook the pilot...

Jerome cursed at the high volume of fire the thrill killers laid down, but they didn't have a monopoly on that.  The gun barrels would be glowing nicely in infrared, so he fired a burst of heat-seeking 20mm rockets from his gun, fired blind over the rock.  The small rockets flew down range, fanning out and then switching to seek mode.

the three mini rockets found their targets with ease, homing in on glowing laser emitters. Two struck the barrels of the guns they were locked in on, exploding impressively, killing three of the thrill killers and wounded two others with shrapnel. The third came just short of it's target and hit a boulder near the third shooter, shattering the rock and filling the area with dust. The man behind the rock went down with severe injuries, and several others were take out of fighting as they choked on the dust and smoke from the explosions.

Those not incapacitated or otherwise injured decided to go for reinforcements, at the same time. The remaining four would be weekend assassins fled on foot for the approaching dropship. A single person in light armor was at the door of the dropship, manning a mounted weapon and was spraying across the gulley with it, in an attempt to lay down suppressing fire. His own people scattered, and one of the four went down in a burst of blood.

Obutsu's job was tedious, but that was what happened when you had your merc rating wrecked by EUdAS agents for working for a Nipponese zaibatsu. His target was a regular arco jerk-off, a suit who ended up on the wrong ship at the wrong time. He was looking for one Mx Adaeze, a gene spliced 7 foot tall Nigerian born woman with a class 3 neko splice, who happened to be the Director of Internal Affairs for the Kampala Arcoplex, and the Terragenesis Complex.

He didn't have the resources to have his own craft, which meant that he had to get a seat on a junker mag-rail and run north along the coast of the Sea of Victoria and try to triangulate the location of her downed shuttle. There was no rhyme or reason as to why a woman (most likely a woman) of such standing and importance would be on a low grade cargo ship on an unauthorized trajectory for Old Cairo, and for her to have been literally shot down by Kampalan aerospace fighters.

It was a s**tty job, and it stank to high heaven, but the alternative was sitting in the Hiring Hall outside Kampala, watching his merc rating continue to fall and his bank account creep closer and closer to negative numbers.

The pilot of the rail tramp told Obutsu that he had picked up energy spikes in their path, likely laser fire, and he wasnt getting paid to go into a hot zone, so either Obutsu could bail and take one of the leg suits from the cargo hatch and carry on on foot, or he could stay on until they reached the first stop, and then he could find passage to the Salt Pan from their himself, but that would take him a good 20 kilometers away from the target

Blue's rifle made quick and terrible work of the horses. The streams never get laser injuries right, they show the beam of light and then the people falling over, or things bursting in a spray of pyrotechnic sparks. In real life, it was much worse, there is carbonizing and vaporization of the flesh. Pockets of water flash boil, and explode. In the case of the handful of horses and camels, this was flash boiled blood, exploding sinus cavities, and bursting eyeballs. The ones who were shot in the head slumped to the ground as their skulls burst and boiled. Those were the lucky ones. The thrill killers were greatly disturbed by this turn of events, and quickly lose their swagger.

Those not already dismounted did so, and drew their weapons to attempt to lay down suppressing fire. They were not military, so their movements were not coordinated, and they were not accurate, luckily indicating none of them had SmartGuns. They still put up a wall of firepower that forced Blue and the others to either seek cover, or risk being hit by a random shot from a gyrojet rifle, magnetic coil gun, or hyper-velocity kinetic rifle.

Pew Pew, indeed.

One, a man, shouted something into his wrist, and the distant dropship started moving forward, either with reinforcements, or with back up for the hapless wanna be weekend murderers

What about dynamic IP ranges in which IP addresses can be assigned to different people at different times?

This was more an issue when we had users creating multiple accounts to carry out personal vendettas against other members, acting in a disruptive manner.
