You pull the hummer closer to the building. Caius throws the masked man into the backseat and heads inside.

Fuse sets the cyborg's beard on fire. It's not much, but it throws his aim off just enough, and gives Michelle just enough time to grab one of the nearby waste barrels. The man fires his shotgun, and Michelle blocks the shot with the metal barrel. You drop your bloodied bandages from the bridge above, entangling them on the man's face, further obscuring his aim as Caius approaches from behind, grabbing the man and trying to wrestle the gun from his grasp.

The man is extraordinarily strong, likely due to his mechanical augmentations. Caius can only hold him off for a moment, forcing the man to fire another missed shot, before he elbows Caius with enough force to send him to the floor. As the man turns to try and shoot at Caius, however, Michelle hurls her metal barrel. It slams into the back of the augmented man, stunning him long enough for Caius to get back to his feet. Caius resumes trying to take the man's shotgun, while Michelle fires her pistol into the man's back--one shot, two shots, three shots, but they don't seem to be slowing him down any. You tell Michelle which parts of the man are flesh and which parts are probably metal, and the bullets sink in, but pain is not enough of a deterrent while he's being controlled.

He slams the end of his shotgun into Caius' face, but Caius doesn't relent, refusing to give the man enough time to fire the gun.

"Somebody's coming," Fuse mutters. "From downstairs. Sounds like it might be a bunch of people."

have Caius get the door while Michelle throws the barrel at the discount terminator. Time to bug out.

Leave, and torch building more on way out.

Shove him off the edge. Also after this we are getting another gun like the one Michelle had back in the hospital or better. We clearly do not have enough firepower.

Flipping heckadoodle.

Painkiller Caius' poor face? Since Caius has him grappled to prevent shooting properly, maybe we can shift the bloody bandages down to entangle RoboHobo's legs for now and force him down just long enough to disarm him and run for the hummer.

If rushing our armoured vehicle through the doors won't wreck it, maybe we could do that to cause distraction enough to disarm the guy properly.

Weird question - could Fuse set the end of the shotgun barrel "on fire", but really just melt it so the barrel end is blocked? >_>a

can we turn all our blood in his body into a clot in his heart while bashing him really hard with another barrel, and hope that's enough for us to be able to get around him and get out? if we can get him on the ground, we can get over him and get the fuck out the door

Yup, dump acid on robohobo. Proceed to run away screaming.

Correction: jam acid barrel on Robohobos head, THEN run away.

Michelle, Caius. Tag team the fucker and toss him over the edge.

I don't know if anyone else noticed this yet, but look at the bridge where Mr. Cyborg is standing. It's buckling from when he landed so hard on it. :o Caius might not be able to overpower his raw strength, but he could use his fighting skills to take advantage of the fact that the guy is standing on shaky terrain and maybe leg sweep him to the ground?
