Magicless Extra: The Villain’s Survival Method – Chapter 22

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟐: 𝐅𝐮𝐥𝐥-𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞 (2)

It was a complete disaster. First off, Oswald was unranked. This meant his rank had yet to be measured, which was also because his suspension period had been quite long.

As a result, the only unranked person in the situation. . . . . .

Oswald can’t help it. . . Natasha was serious.

‘𝘐𝘳𝘰𝘯 𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘬. . . . . .’

Even as support, it could be said that he wasn’t much help.

‘𝘈𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘢 𝘪𝘴 𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘷𝘦𝘳. . . . . .’

Alicia had good firepower but lacked stamina, because she was young and her total magic power was low.

‘𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘴𝘰, 𝘪𝘵’𝘴 𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘵𝘰 𝘬𝘦𝘦𝘱 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘎𝘪𝘭𝘨𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘴𝘩 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘪𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘣𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘢𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘦.’

In a word, it means that her firepower is at the gold rank level.

‘𝘌𝘭𝘴𝘢. . . 𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘷𝘦𝘳, 𝘙𝘰𝘺𝘮𝘢𝘯. . . 𝘣𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘻𝘦. . . 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘴 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘭𝘥.’

Because the rank gap is caused by whether or not they use shadow assassination techniques, it would be enough to think of them as potential gold ranks.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵 𝘱𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘥𝘶𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘰𝘯. . . 𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘵 𝘴𝘬𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘯?’

They were monsters suitable as the first practice target for students because they were the most fertile and intelligent. They were also guys whose difficulty level varied greatly depending on the weapon they played with.

However. . . if there was a drawback, it was that they were like rats and it could be difficult to deal with them if you hated rats. Like Elsa right now.

Elsa, who shivered as if she would get goosebumps at the word skaven dungeon.

“Tsk. . . . . .”

There was nothing to do but click his tongue, and Elsa pretended to be okay out of pride because she heard Oswald clicking his tongue.

As they entered the dungeon, they saw a vast jungle. . .

It had to be a jungle. Skaven in a jungle like this. . . I’ll be ambushed from a very remote place. Moreover, skaven were intelligent monsters. If they hadn’t eaten people, they would have been classified as a superior species with outstanding intelligence, so they tend to target the weakest.

For example. . . people like Natasha.

The goal is to find and collect flags scattered throughout the jungle. Each flag was awarded 10 points, and the team that collected the most points took the most points.

Of course, killing a skaven also gives you 1 point.

So, it means that you only have to do one of the two: collect a lot of flags within the time limit. . . or wipe out the skaven.

Thud. . . . . . Thud. . . . . .

Thanks to his well-developed sensory organs, Oswald could sense the presence of skaven by sound, smell, and sight.

From the grass that moved slightly differently to the sound of grasshoppers that could no longer be heard at any moment. . . . Despite this situation, it seemed that no one had noticed anything yet.

Only Oswald prepared to pull the trigger at any time to prepare for them.

Click.

‘𝘐𝘵’𝘴 𝘢 𝘣𝘰𝘸.’

The sound of pulling the bowstring. . . . . . It was pulled very slowly and carefully so as not to make a sound. . . but for Oswald with his superior sensory level, it was like hearing it right next to him.

‘𝘞𝘩𝘦𝘸. . . . . .’

Oswald, who was breathing evenly and preparing to get out of the water at any time. . . right at the moment when their bowstring reached the critical point! Oswald moved first.

Bang! Clank. Bang! Clank. Bang!

“What are you doing?”

At the sudden gunfire, Elsa looked back at Oswald with an expression like,”What the hell is going on?”. . . but soon, the arrows hit the helmet she was wearing and the shield she was holding, making a swoosh. Swoosh. Kang! Kang! and she realized that the skaven had appeared.

Oswald could have taken care of the guys targeting Elsa, but he didn’t. Somehow, he didn’t feel like helping her. Thanks to this, her head was dizzy and she couldn’t control her body properly because she was in a stun state.

“Alicia, burn everything in front of you!”

Oswald immediately gave instructions to Alicia. This was because a large number of skaven troops were detected running from the front.

Alicia, unlike Elsa, didn’t say a word and prepared a powerful magic spell.

Soon, intense flames rose around Alicia’s body and gathered in her two hands, and as soon as she aimed high at the sky. . . a red magic circle formed from the palm of her hand and a fireball shot high into the sky.

“Double Explosion!!”

Then, the sphere of flame that had soared high into the sky fell towards its target.

As the fireball fell, two magic circles were created vertically towards the drop point, and each time the fireball passed through the magic circle, its power increased, and when it hit the ground, it caused a huge explosion and swept everything in front of it.

Kaboom!

Kyaaaaa! Kiaaaaa!

More than twenty skaven were swept away.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘱𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘵𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘪𝘤 𝘣𝘶𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘪𝘴 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘩𝘶𝘨𝘦. . . . . .’

It showed that the same explosion was a different dimension whether it was shot with a magic bullet or unfolded with magic. Especially since it showed twice the firepower. . . . . .

At this point, it was like the power of an A10 thunderbolt exploding napalm.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘰 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘯𝘵. . . . . .’

Oswald began to clean up the enemy assassins approaching from the flank.

Bang! Clank. Bang! Clank. Bang!

Oswald, who had used up all eight rounds of ammunition in an instant, immediately took out regular rounds from his magic pouch and loaded them at a rapid pace.

‘𝘐𝘴𝘯’𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢 𝘧𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘰𝘢𝘥?’

If you increase your gun skills, your reload speed will increase. . . but it was not the speed Oswald was thinking of. Oswald thinks that it should be at least two to three times faster than it is now. So he opened the Fate Shop and looked around for anything suitable.

‘𝘖𝘩.’

There was something to fit. First, ‘Dexterity’. It was a stat that helped with all skills done by hand. Whether it’s swordsmanship, archery, gunmanship, or martial arts. . . it was a stat that increased the proficiency of everything that could be done with your hands.

The next skill was ‘Nimble Movement’. It was a skill influenced by the Agility stat, and like Dexterity, it was a skill that influenced other skills.

‘𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘐 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘍𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘗𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘭𝘦𝘧𝘵. . . . . .’

He wondered if he had spent too much, but. . . he comforted himself by saying that he had needed them at the time.

Anyway, the thought was for a moment. . . Oswald raised his muzzle at the skaven who were starting to move again and pulled the trigger.

After a while, the battle subsided. . . and the crew decided to take a break. Meanwhile, Oswald used his magic watch to check the score.

Score.

[𝐄𝐥𝐬𝐚 𝐍𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤𝐞𝐫: 𝟎 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐀𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐧: 𝟒𝟕 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐎𝐬𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐝 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫: 𝟏𝟖 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐑𝐨𝐲𝐦𝐚𝐧: 𝟐 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚: 𝟒 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

Supports receive half the points for killing monsters with their own auxiliary magic or their own auxiliary. The same goes for tanks. One point is earned per monster that draws aggro.

Nevertheless, 0 points. . . means that she was less helpful than Natasha. Will she, who has a lot of pride, stay still when she sees this situation?

‘𝘛𝘴𝘬. . . . . .’

It was a moment when he couldn’t help but click his tongue.

A long time after they started moving again after the break, Elsa forgot her position and ran to get points when she saw the flag. But it was a trap set by the skaven, and it fell into a pit trap that had been nicely made on the floor.

The team members were left defenseless as the tank disappeared. . .

Oswald used the explosion magic bullet to subdue the skaven as much as possible.

As Oswald bought time with his great performance, Alicia immediately prepared magic, and Natasha cast magic power enhancement and magic power recovery magic on such Alicia. Then, Alicia, who had completed the magic, immediately cast the magic. . . . . .

“Multiple Magic Missiles!!”

Thirty magic missiles were created around her and flew away, targeting each skaven.

Pewpewpewpewpewpewpew!

Oswald’s group, who repelled the skaven ambush with her great performance. Oswald then gave the flag to Royman.

[𝐄𝐥𝐬𝐚 𝐍𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤𝐞𝐫: -𝟏𝟎 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐀𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐧: 𝟕𝟕 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐎𝐬𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐝 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫: 𝟑𝟏 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐑𝐨𝐲𝐦𝐚𝐧: 𝟏𝟐 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚: 𝟏𝟗 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

“. . . . . .”

Elsa, who achieved -10 points by herself. She lost -5 points for forgetting her position and putting her teammates in danger, and -5 points for falling into a trap that the enemy had dug, not knowing if she had even won a flag.

She was trembling at the fact that even Oswald had 31 points and Natasha had 19 points.

“This is about the price of a single flag.”

When Oswald teased her about her current situation with a sarcastic remark. . . she could only grumble and say nothing.

There was an hour left. . . In that time, they had to either hunt as much as a single flag was worth, or collect more flags.

Oswald checked the scores of the other crew members with his magic watch.

[𝐀𝐳𝐞𝐥 𝐒𝐨𝐥𝐜𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐝: 𝟔𝟏 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐆𝐢𝐥𝐠𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐡 𝐀𝐫𝐤𝐚𝐝: 𝟏𝟑𝟐 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐘𝐮𝐢𝐡𝐚𝐧: 𝟗𝟐 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐌𝐢𝐠𝐮𝐞𝐥 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫: 𝟖𝟖 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

[𝐋𝐞𝐢𝐤𝐚 𝐆𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬: 𝟓𝟎 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬]

‘𝘐𝘵’𝘴 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨. . . . . .’

Perhaps they would be able to quickly find skavens without any trouble and collect flags while sweeping them away. Of course, if Oswald acted alone, he would be able to catch Gilgamesh, but. . . he didn’t think it was necessary to reveal his abilities and attract attention.

‘𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘪𝘴𝘯’𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘵𝘢𝘭 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘰𝘧 300 𝘱𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘵𝘰𝘰 𝘮𝘶𝘤𝘩?’

Even the other teams had earned over 200 points by covering each other’s backs. The difference between them and this team was that they didn’t have a leader yet.

In other words, it means the difference between those who move in unison under the command of the leader and those who just go as they please without a leader.

‘𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰 𝘮𝘺 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵. . . 𝘰𝘳 𝘐’𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦 𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳.’

“From now on, I’ll take the lead as the leader. Anyone have any objections?”

“I agree!”

Alicia exclaimed her approval right away, and Royman nodded in agreement. Only Natasha glanced at Elsa. . . but she had no choice but to agree because she understood their current situation better than anyone else.

“I. . . I will agree.”

“I. . . . . .”

Elsa, who was the only one who was upset with Oswald, was about to complain. . . . . .

“People with negative scores have no say or vote. Since the majority has already agreed, I will start giving orders.”

“What!”

“If you have a problem, you can go solo. You’re useless anyway.”

“. . . . . .”

Elsa felt like she was going crazy from the bombardment of facts.

Oswald spread his senses as much as possible, leaving Elsa behind, and soon detected the location where the skavens were gathered. Judging by their position, they were ambushed with the flag in the center.

“I’ll take the vanguard. The rest of you, follow me as quickly as you can.”

Oswald quickly started running after he had sheathed his greatsword. Royman, Alicia, and Natasha followed him.

Elsa was left alone. . . . . .

“Who says I can’t go solo? I’d rather go solo than follow the orders of a criminal! It’s a hundred, a thousand times better!”

In the end, she couldn’t break her pride and started acting alone. However, as soon as she started acting alone. . . her score dropped by another -5 points.

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

Hecaton’s Headquarters.

“The liberal revolutionaries have been attacked at the underground slave market?”

“Yes, Deputy Director.”

“Hmm. . . . . . Who do you think did that?”

“A demon hunter visited the slave market at the time.”

“A demon hunter? Against the liberal revolutionaries? That’s nonsense. No matter how crazy the liberal revolutionaries are, they don’t join hands with the demons.”

Not yet. . . . . .

“It could be the Dark Brotherhood.”

Dark Brotherhood.

A secret organization that despised all the evil in the world and wanted to eradicate it from this world. It was a fearsome organization rumored to be made up of knights of the Diamond class. Those who do not hesitate to assassinate them, even if the evil is the king of a country. . . . . .

“Tsk. . . . . . does this mean our operation has failed?”

“There are still some of their bases all over the system.”

“But they’re not stupid enough to attack without weapons.”

“What if we supply them with weapons?”

“Don’t you know that the second Deputy Director, a pacifist, is watching me?”

“. . . . . .”

“Looks like we’ll have to go with the second plan.”

“But. . . wouldn’t that be too dangerous?”

“It’s a part that I had a conversation with His Majesty the Emperor.”

“Then who. . . . . .”

“Of course, it would be appropriate for a lowly bastard to do so.”
