    >>9412083 continued.

    Blasticlaw, the usurper shrimp and traitor to Crustacea, is trapped! He is firing wildly, killing your men in droves. He managed to open up a passageway in your troops, and is trying to escape!

    The hell he is! Charge into that gap and meet him in battle! The troops will funnel him right to us!

    We'll tear through that hollow shell of his!

    You hold fast, your powerful claws (CQC!) are too much for his pitiful appendages, and he remains immobile! You hold onto his claws and bite at his soft shell! A satisfying crunch announces his first mortal wound! Blood gushes from his shell, and in a fearful tantrum he attempts to shoot you again!

    He knocks you upside the shell and fires point-blank at you, dealing a massive 40 damage! He turns to flee through the knotty kelp field, but your troops move to intercept! One mantis shrimp by the name of Gumbo leaps forth and deals a massive blow to Blasticlaw's face!
