Chapter 403: Zhuge Repeating Crossbow

“Ding! You have bought 5000 crossbows. 500 Acting Tough Points have been deducted.” The notification of the System rang in his mind.
Xu Que had also bought two books—’King of Wushu’ and ‘Dragon Subduing Palms’—with 30 Acting Tough Points.
Both books concerned the practice of martial arts—or in other words, Yellow Stage Martial Arts.
If Xu Que were in a world of swordsmen, the two types of martial arts would be very helpful. But he was at that moment in the Cultivation World, where the two types of martial arts were not a big deal at all.
However, since no one could use their True Core Strength here, he felt no better than a mortal in that moment.
‘King of Wushu’, in fact, was a type of martial art that required the exertion of a great internal force. It was very masculine and ferocious. If an ordinary man learned how to perform it, his internal force would be greatly enhanced. Zhang Wuji was an example of this.
The King of Wushu technique was compatible with the Dragon Subduing Palm technique. Performing the two in conjunction would allow one to achieve a very good effect.
“Vice Battalion Commander, Come over here!” Xu Que pointed to a random soldier near him.
That soldier was stunned and said, “Sorry, I am not the Vice Battalion Commander…”
“Never mind that, from now on, you are the Vice Battalion Commander. Tell the others to throw their damned bows and arrows away and use the Zhuge Repeating Crossbow.” Xu Que retrieved all the Zhuge Repeating Crossbows from his system storage.
Suddenly, 5000 Zhuge Repeating Crossbows appeared on the ground.
Seeing this, everyone around him was shocked.
“What is this? It looks so strange.”
“Hero Zhuge just said that this is the Zhuge Repeating Crossbow. Is this something he made himself?”
The soldiers had no idea how to use this crossbow.
After all, in the Cultivation World, cultivators were accustomed to using cultivation techniques and magic weapons. As for gunpowder, it had been invented by the cultivators by accident. Later, it was humans who had made cannons out of the gunpowder.
Compared with those items, the Zhuge Repeating Crossbow seemed a bit shabby. But in their current situation where no one could use their True Core Strength and there was no gunpowder at all, the Zhuge Repeating Crossbow seemed to be a good second choice.
“Repeat after me. Yes, right! First, target the enemy, put one hand on the switch, pull the device on the top with your other hand, then shoot!”
In the blink of an eye, a thin but sharp arrow quickly flew from the weapon and pierced on the chest of a soldier of the Ice Troops.
Seeing this, everyone on the city wall took a deep breath.
“How amazing! It does not even take him much strength to shoot the arrow. The arrow flies so fast as well!”
The soldiers of the Ice Troops were also stunned. They stared at the city wall, trying to find out where the arrows had come from.
“They really are shameless! They are even using hidden weapons!”
“Fire first, then hidden weapons…”
The General’s face turned gloomy. “Never mind,” he said. “The hidden weapons will not affect us. Shoot! Hurry up! Kill them all!”
Seeing this scene, Xu Que sneered and targeted the marching soldiers.
“Everyone, watch carefully now. I am going to show you how powerful the Zhuge Repeating Crossbow really is!” Xu Que shouted.
“Didn’t we already see it just now?” one soldier said.
Xu Que pressed the switch. In the next moment, a thin arrow flew out. Then he quickly moved his finger, and the device on the crossbow continued moving forward and backward at a rapid pace.
Bang! Bang! Bang!…
In the blink of an eye, countless arrows were flying out one after another.
All the soldiers on the city wall were speechless.
“What the f*ck! So many arrows with just one shot?”
“The soldiers of the Ice Troops are doomed this time!”
“We have got five thousand crossbows. Just one is already this powerful…”
“Hero Zhuge is really powerful, and he has got so many weapons! It is lucky that he is on our side…”
Xu Que said, “See? Now, everyone take a crossbow and let’s shoot them to death.”
Hearing this, everyone got excited and hurriedly picked up a crossbow. They could not wait to test the crossbows themselves.
Situ also took a crossbow.
“Good, you guys take care of the soldiers. I will go and kill their bowmen and that General!” Xu Que stepped forward onto the edge of the city wall, about to jump down.
“Hero Zhuge, do not do that, it is dangerous!”
“Do not forget, we cannot use our True Core Strength!”
“Are you unhappy? Tell us about it! We can help you!”
“I will be fine…” Xu Que said.
“I will go with you,” Situ said, holding her weapon, Fang Tian Ji, in her hand.
“You should stay here and help them. I am the protagonist of the upcoming show!” Xu Que touched his chest and smiled.
“I know that you are powerful. But how are you planning to get down there in the first place? It is too high! We haven’t got any fabric wings here either, unless you make another set…” Situ said.
“I will just jump down. Have you ever heard of the Chinese Qinggong? If not, let me show you!”
