Outside, a host of 'sploderats - spaced out far enough to make picking them off a one-by-one the only option - became visible as they crossed the roadway between the drop site and the mountain. They were heading toward Taylor and team. HC soldiers advanced to positions of cover, but there are not enough of them to make a big perimeter. The soldiers started to pick the rats off, but it seemed likely that they would miss some.
Inside the base, the clock was ticking. A blast of superheated steam was pounding up the new corrodor very fast - fast enough to blow molten rock ahead of it. "You have three minutes to get out of the way," Google said. "The blowback will kill you all." The howling, scorching wind from the glowing tunnel added urgency to its words. The HCs were also under attack. Rats and humanoid killer robots - just call them Terminators, ok? - pushed in from the main gun. The battle was intense, but the HCs were able to partially collapse the tunnel from the gun to this part of the base. The rats were not able to blow up the rubble to make a passage - at least not immediately.
The position Sutton and crew are in is not a killbox yet - but it will be very soon.
Note: the infinity bullets happen next, which is a reshuffling of events as they occurred in the game.
