Sword Art Online:Volume 5 Chapter 5
After the browser opened, it automatically accessed the site with the start-up URL. Many double-layered windows were displayed.
They were all related to Gun Gale Online, in particular, a collection of information focused on «Death Gun».
«He» used his right index finger to operate the 3D mouse, making the current most relevant site active. On the front page with the words «death gun information summary site», only the words 'Death Gun' were red.
Looking at the history first, it seemed the administrator hadn't made any new updates tonight. He then moved to the message board. Some new ones were written since last night's check, and the status tree was flashing «NEW» icon here and there. He read them in sequence.
—Those two, Zekushiido and Tarako haven't appeared. Has it been one month? Maybe their accounts were irresponsibly disconnected? Someone who can contact them in the real world, if you have any information share it PLZ.
—Told you there wasn't any. It was said no one in their squadron knows how to contact them in real life. Also, whoever discloses personal information in GGO is a fool.
—Since we know the day and time that Death Gun shot them, if those two really died, will we know if we can find any VRMMO player that died around that time?
—Don't loop the topic, read the past log. For a person living alone, no one will notice if they die. We already checked that, asking the police won't get any answers. Incidentally, if you ask Zasker with an English mail, they will send the standard response related to user's personal information.
—As I thought it could be that Zeku-tan and Tarako-tan wanted some excitement for their retirement commemoration. You two, if you don't come out and expose the truth soon, the impact will be lost.
—After all, someone has to use his body as a test, I think. In this case, tomorrow at 2330 I will wear a red rose at my chest and wait in front of the Gurokken central bank's front. Death Gun-san please shoot me.
—Hero debut! But if you don't expose your real name and address before you die, it would be meaningless.
—Or rather please use a Net Cafe for a public dive.
«He» clicked his tongue in annoyance. He moved the mouse wheel to make the next window active. However, no matter which message board or information site, he could not find the desired article or written message.
Originally he envisioned, after two people had died, "Is «Death Gun»'s power real?" That kind of rumor would spread around the net, with GGO players wondering in fear if they were the next target, having people retire from the game— that was what was supposed to happen.
However right now, the foolish net gamers still had not realized «Death Gun»'s real terror, and ended it with talk of jokes. The total number of GGO user accounts had hardly been reduced.
Also, that the real world death of «Zekushiido» and «Usujio Tarako» had not been reported was beyond his calculation. It seemed there was a large number of strange death incidents in the city every day, and if it wasn't a clear crime case, it won't be on the news.
Of course, the hearts of two people «He» shot were definitely stopped in the real world, and he knew they died. That was «Death Gun»'s power.
«He» had a strong temptation to write that information on the summary site's message board. However, it would be hard for him to provide a concrete source for his information, and if he did that then it would weaken the legend of «Death Gun». «Death Gun» will be the first and last absolute warrior to descend on that wilderness, suppressing the management company's power, a real god of death.
«He» took a deep breath to calm down.
Soon the third «Bullet of Bullets» will be held. «Death Gun» will take part in the tournament, again kill two, if possible three people, that is the plan. Of course he has to pass the preliminary without using that gun. For that day, if he logs in 20 hours a day to train his stats, it will certainly be possible.
BoB is subject to a great degree of attention. «MMO Stream» will broadcast it in real time, and not only GGO but other VRMMO players will be watching it as well. He will not only reign on that large stage in name and reality as strongest, but if the people he shot with that gun disappeared from the net, then there won't be any foolish people who would doubt «Death Gun»'s power.
If he obtains that degree of attention, he wouldn't be able to use his current account anymore, but that doesn't matter. As long as he has that gun, a new «Death Gun» can easily descend into the wilderness.
Then continue to kill. In the plan, the sacrifices will rise up to seven people. At that time there should be players constantly retiring, then the Gun Gale Online title would have been put on a death sentence.
«Death Gun» would become legend.
It won't be comparable to that cursed death game «Sword Art Online» in the number of deaths, that was simply a crazy person cooking the users' brains with a microwave oven.
«Death Gun»'s power isn't of that low dimension. The bullet released in the virtual world will stop the heart in the real world. The only other person who knows the secret is «his» other half. That is why «Death Gun» is the strongest person. He won't become a questionable rumor like the «Black Swordsman» who cleared SAO. The time that he will become the top player of all VRMMOs will soon come.
Absolute power— Legendary devil— The strongest— The strongest— The strongest—...
«He» noticed that without him knowing, his right hand was holding the mouse tightly, he relaxed his shoulders while breathing raggedly.
He was looking forward to that day. If he obtains that legend, then he has no more use for this stupid world. «He» will forever bid farewell to those annoying stupid people.
After closing all the open double windows in the browser, «He» opened a new local HTML file.
Seven portraits in a column— made from cropping GGO screenshots, to the right of each is their name, equipment, and other information. The top picture, «Zekushiido», and the one below it, «Usujio Tarako», pictures were darkened, with a blood red X mark through them.
This is «Death Gun»'s target list, put in another way, this is the number of «Death Bullets» in that gun's magazine. All seven were famous, strong players in GGO.
«He» slowly scrolled down the file, placing the bottom most picture in the center of the screen. The only female player in the seven.
The screen shot was taken from a right side angle. Her pale blue short hair was tied on either side of her face as it came down, hiding half of her cheek lines. It's a shame her mouth could not be seen with the deeply wound sand-yellow muffler around it, but her deep blue eyes that seem like a cat's eyes shone with enough charm.
The name displayed on the right was «Sinon». Main weapon is the anti-materiel rifle «Ultima Ratio Hecate II».
«He» had seen her many times in the game directly. When she was shopping at the Gurokken market street, sitting in a park bench eating a hot dog from a food stand, and sprinting in the battle field with that huge rifle on her back— All of them full of coquettish charm that stirred his desire to possess her. He had almost never seen her smile, her eyes were usually filled with sorrow, but that attracted him even more.
«He» had some hesitation about this girl named Sinon being «Death Gun»'s target. If not only in game, her body and heart in the real world as well became his—
But «His» other half, «Death Gun»'s other arm, probably wished for her death. Sinon was a cold sniper in GGO, there was almost no one who didn't recognize her as a famous player known as the goddess of the underworld. There was no one more suitable than her to be offered as a flower for «Death Gun»'s legend.
«He» stretched out his right hand, fingers stroking the photo of Sinon.
In the touch of the slippy polished screen, «He» really felt the real girl's softness and warmth.
