Update 11
Spoiler:
Image
With the Mods still recovering from their attack to take Coldfront, BLU and RED troops move in to destroy their defenses before they can fortify and completely take over the base. The battle so far had been easy for BLU and RED, and soon they had half the area secured. However, they reached a standstill at BLU base when the Mods finally put together a strong defense and began pushing the Users back.
Spoiler:
Image
Sentries pinned down a group of veteran users who had tried to storm the base after taking control of mid. Snipers also lined up towards the back, using the choke point for easy headshots, making a frontal assault nearly impossible given the equipment they had to work with.
Spoiler:
Image
"Grr..." Wyatt mumbled, reloading his rocket launcher and glancing back to Leaf. "How are you holding up?" he asked the wounded User.

Leaf rubbed his arm and nodded. "I'll be fine, don't worry. Dammit, these sentries are blocking us from getting out of here though! What do we do?"
Spoiler:
Image
A sniper shot rang out and a newbie User taunted in happiness. "That was for ChaoAreMyFavorite!" they shouted.
Spoiler:
Image
On the other side though was a group of Heavies pushing through the choke point towards the Users on the other side.
Spoiler:
Image
"Ahh it's no use. We can't attack them or they'll uber, and my uber is only at 75% so I can't counter..." Xeno bit his lip and scratched his head, unsure of what to do.

Marnex tried to come up with a plan but realized they were doomed unless some backup came along to save them all.
Spoiler:
Image
A new User cowered in fear. "I don't want to die...." he repeated, over and over.

"Oh calm yourself you fool, we aren't going to die. Blasphemy has come with her backup, we'll be out of this in no time," Minty said, unsure himself if that would be enough to push the Mods back.
Spoiler:
Image
"Alright listen up. You are all skilled Soldiers that have been in the war for years, even if your appearances say otherwise." Blasphemy stated, glancing at each Soldier carefully.
Spoiler:
Image
"Alpha team, your job will be to disable those sentries using the high road and allowing our vets on the ground to advance and eliminate the opposition that controls the choke point. Those sentries, while tough, are slow to turn around and take a look at you. Use this to your advantage and you'll have no problems taking out those guns."
Spoiler:
Image
"Bravo team, your job is similar to Alpha's in many ways. You will take the high road in order to allow the ground vets to take control of the choke point. However, your job is to take out those Medics in one shot. If any of you are late or early in the attack, the Medics will pop uber and destroy us. If that happens, we'll more than likely be forced to retreat, giving them more time to repair and set up more defenses. We need to get into that base NOW!"
Spoiler:
Image
"Alright any questions? No? Move out!" Blasphemy ordered, ushering the Soldiers out of the house and into their positions. "I hope this works..."
Spoiler:
Image
Alpha team rocket jumped up to their position and awaited for Blasphemy's go to take the sentry nests.
Spoiler:
Image
Bravo team also positioned itself using rocket jumping and awaited further orders. The radio buzzed with orders. "Wait until the Medics are directly below you. Remember, do not miss this shot or we're all screwed."
Spoiler:
Image
The Medic Heavy group moved forward and prepared to destroy the Users waiting on the other side in one fell swoop. "Now!" Blasphemy shouted.
Spoiler:
Image
The team blasted the Medics to bits, having them both drop uber. "We got them, the uber has been dropped," Bravo leader said.
Spoiler:
Image
Spinning around, the heavies were shocked to see their medics suddenly dead where they once stood. They glanced up and prepared to fire on the Soldiers.
Spoiler:
Image
Taking advantage of the distraction, Marnex and Xeno jumped out and ubered. "Ahahaha!" Marnex yelled, pumping the mods with bullets.
Spoiler:
Image
All the Heavies fell dead in seconds, their robot parts clanging and smashing against each other. "Move up," Xeno said, following Marnex.

Blasphemy radioed in to Alpha team after the defense of mid was taken care of, saying, "Move in and take out those sentries. That uber won't last long enough to destroy both of them."
Spoiler:
Image
Alpha team popped out from behind the corner and prepared to fire on the sentry gun.
Spoiler:
Image
While the sentry was fast, it wasn't fast enough to react to the group of soldiers sudden appearance and take care of it.
Spoiler:
Image
The Engineer and his sentry were blown to pieces, sending the Mod flying down with a loud CLANG.
Spoiler:
Image
"Amazing! They took out the sentry keeping us down!" Leaf shouted, grinning a little. The two vets ran into the choke point, Wyatt distracting the Snipers while Leaf shot stickys at the sentry gun that was aiming for the group of Soldiers.
Spoiler:
Image
Metal bones shattered as each rocket blew them away and destroyed their circuits for good. Wyatt smiled, his aim always being dead on.
Spoiler:
Image
"Uh oh..." The Mod quietly beeped, staring at the explosives all around his feet.
Spoiler:
Image
An earth shattering boom blew apart the sentry and sent the Mod sprawled across the floor, rendering it out of service forever.
Spoiler:
Image
With the last of the uber, the two vets finished off the Snipers that ran away from them and secured the area for BLU and RED.
Spoiler:
Image
One Sniper managed to escape though, preparing to warn the rest of the incoming Users.
Spoiler:
Image
Back at Mid, Linds met up with Blasphemy. "Ah yes, it appears everything is going well. You're a damn fine commander Blasphemy."
Spoiler:
Image
"Thank you. It's a shame I can't keep all my troops alive though..." Blasphemy mumbled, sadness filling her voice.
Spoiler:
Image
"Hm? What happened?" Linds asked, taking out another cigarette from her case.
Spoiler:
Image
Blasphemy sighed and spun the clip of her grenade launcher. "We lost a good amount of Users, both new and vet while trying to take over mid. It's my fault, as I was simply charging my army headfirst into danger. Turns out their commander was there and coordinated a devastating attack that took out a chunk of the Users attacking. Once we got ourselves together, it was easy to push them back but... ugh." Blasphemy closed her eyes and clenched her fist, anger building up inside her.

Linds rubbed her chin slowly before answering. "If their commander was there, I highly doubt it would've been any better had you taken it slow. In fact, it was because you charged in that was made it this far. It is a shame that a lot of people had to die to get this far, but we all knew what we signed up for when we agreed to take on Coldfront. Don't let this get to you Blasphemy, you're a great commander."

Nothing but silence followed for a while before Blasphemy finally thanked Linds, patted her on the shoulder, and walked away. Linds bit her lip and placed her hands on her hips. Right now she had some other troops to organize and couldn't afford to stand here. RED base wasn't yet fully secured, but they were very close.
Spoiler:
Image
Aidan ran up the choke point at RED base. He had received orders to stay at HQ and recover from his earlier mission, but decided he'd rather help the Users push forward. Besides, he felt more than fine and could handle himself out there.
Spoiler:
Image
Something horrifying stopped him in his tracks though. "No... Jesus Christ no..."
Spoiler:
Image
Against the wall with a shovel through his chest was Vince. One of Aidan's best friends was dead and lying in a pool of blood and alcohol. He used his remaining time on earth to drink one last beer before he died. God dammit, that was sure like him. Aidan formed a fist and held back tears. Never in his wildest dreams would he have imagined Vince being the first User from their group of six to die (At least not like this, he suspected his addiction to booze may be the end of him). He looked at the shovel handle and a rage grew inside him.
Spoiler:
Image
Renae was etched into the handle. "Renae... When I find you..."
Spoiler:
Image
"I WILL KILL YOU!"

Great update Fox!
Only complaint is that there was no reference to the main/original 6, aside from a few frames of you and Roivas...

That Roivas bit was actually genius though

(You also made a typo which was supposed to be "imagined" (I think) somewhere in there)

JmT, I'm starting to think you only made Fox a mod for him to be turned into a mod in the story.

It actually ends with a giant ubered robot war, Titanfall style.
Except you couldn't make pictures of this in GMod. Sorry everyone.

Aidan killing off everyone who leaves Chao Island for one reason or another. First Sable, now Vince. It's kind of surprising tbh.
It all adds up. The bleeding, the bleeding... He never bleeds. Have you noticed that?

I thought I could still do it even with school but I guess not...

Though don't think I've completely abandoned this. I recently had to delete my gmod addons because they were just taking up too much space, so now I'm left with a lot of stuff to download again.

As soon as I do, and as soon as I get time, I'm gonna update eventually.

Meanwhile
Spoiler:
Image
"Okay you dumb pile of bolts, what do you want from me? Do you think it's fun to impersonate and cause grief? What's your deal?!" Mana exclaims in frustration, tired of being messed around and impersonated inappropriately, yet somehow still acting cool.
Spoiler:
Image
"You can leave the easy way, or leave in a bucket... a bucket of bolts. HEH." Mana jokes.
The lead robot responds. "You see, we cannot leave until the entire island is destroyed, that's what we were created for. We'll drive some users away, and those who are dumb enough to stay will get to enjoy the fireworks show"
Spoiler:
Image
"I'll give you one last chance before your circuitry becomes wall art, you hear me you dumb bot?!? LEAVE NOW!"
Acting sarcastically, the lead robot pretends to shudder in fear. "First of all, we're bulletproof, you thick flesh pile. Secondly, you think you can take down every last one of us?! There's hundreds of us across the island! You'll never get to us on time... the bomb is being planted as we speak. Good luck with that."

Another side-quest update coming soon. Update is Fox Boy™ approved.

Spoiler:

"What are we supposed to do with this? We aren't Heavy bots!" The robot on the left speaks. It crackles like it's coming through a small speaker.
Spoiler:
Image
"You think the boss doesn't know that? You idiot." The other robot snarls a response, occasionally making a beeping noise.
The first robot responds awkwardly. "Err. Is there anything in the manual about arming this thing? Or how we can transport it without blowing our metal butts off?"
Spoiler:
Image
"If my scan brought up any results, don't you think I would have made it clear long ago? Damn boss, I don't think he even has a clue about what he's doing!"

"...Don't know what I'm doing?!"

Well Fox, I finally got around to reading this Mann vs Mod. story after a year and half of it being out and I gotta say...it's pretty damn impressive.

Don't get me wrong, The reason I never read this was due to not really understanding the premise of it, but after playing a bit of TF2 with you and getting into it more and more, this story actually started to interest me bit by bit, and I have to say this is very very good. The characters you've used stick to personalities they have on the site, there is humour in there to keep it funny, the plots are interesting, characters can die meaning no one is safe, keeping people watching and even with the still images there is a feel of action throughout.

I apologise for not reading this all the way through sooner, and I really do hope you update this soon. It is very good and very interesting.

Don't leave us hanging, homeslice.

Chapter where Retro + Patrick save the day through detective skills when?
