In the second game, the US team’s lineup was a charger, two assaulters, a scout, and a sniper. Among them, the sniper Venus was the captain of the US team and a famous world-class sniper. Coach Asta replaced a player with the captain because he obviously wanted to win the second game.
On the Chinese team’s side, everyone focused their attention on Pei Feng’s selection as a free person. What position would he play in this round? Viewers around the world were speculating.
Soon, Pei Feng chose his weapons for this game. The main weapon was the ‘Supernova Double Guns.’ They had a gun body sprayed with a technological blue pattern. The secondary weapon was the Sand Eagle-Judgment. The third weapon he chose was smoke bombs.
The commentators analyzed it. “It seems that Fred is playing a scout in this round. This way, the Chinese team will have a lineup of three scouts and two medics!”
“The output of this lineup obviously isn’t enough. Fortunately, it is flexible and light. It has a relatively high fault tolerance rate. However, if the US team groups up then it will be difficult for scouts to fight in close combat, right?”
“Yes, scouts are suitable for solo killing, but it isn’t suitable for team battles. It is because during team battles, assaulters and chargers can shoot a large number of bullets in a short period of time to form firepower suppression. Scouts rely on pistols, and the firepower can’t keep up. The US team has an advantage in 5V5 fights.”
“We still have a chance in guerrilla warfare! This game is likely to be directed by Fred. The game is about to begin. Let’s look forward to the wonderful performance of the Chinese team in the second map, City of Ice.”
The map loaded, and the game officially began.
City of Ice was the fastest paced of all maps.
On normal maps, if players switched to the lightest weapon, then they could only move forward around one meter per second. However, in City of Ice, there was the acceleration effect of the ice surface, and they could move forward two meters per second. This was double the distance. If they encountered a downhill section, they could even move forward five meters in one second, just like riding on a slide.
If they moved too quickly, the bullets fired by the players would deviate. If they lost their balance when turning, they might fall over. City of Ice wasn’t a key tactical map for the US team, but the players often practiced positioning on this map. Their basic skills were very solid.
In order to ensure the fairness of the game, the map was designed into a very symmetrical square. The birth points of both sides were on the east and west sides. The entire map had a total of four resurrection points in the northeast, southeast, northwest, and southwest.
The moment the game started, the five members of the US team quickly dispersed in a 1-3-1 formation. The scout and sniper acted alone while the other three melee positions rushed together to quickly sneak into the center of the city.
Verus ordered in a low voice, “The scout is to find Fred first. Start searching from the southwest corner. I will guard the southeast. Everyone else, search along the middle of the map. Kill every person you see and widen the heads gap as soon as possible.”
The teammates said in unison, “I got it.”
The Chinese team collectively changed into white clothes in this game. This was also a skill that Old Chang taught them. Wearing white clothes on ice and snow maps could minimize their presence and blend into the environment, making it difficult for opponents to find them.
Everyone thought that Fred was commanding this game.
Only the people of the Chinese team knew that this game was actually commanded by Ye Qingming.
As the captain of the YY team, he had excellent commanding abilities!
Ye Qingming’s voice was filled with a smile. “Xueyao, first look for the enemy sniper. The others should spread out in four directions. Don’t rush to fight when you encounter the enemy. Just run. All of you, run for me.”
He made a mark on the map. “Lead them over there.”
The Chinese team’s system of three scouts and two medics in this game seemed to have insufficient firepower. However, firepower depended on the hit rate. Compared to an assaulter who fired 10 bullets to kill a person, it was better for a scout to shoot the head directly with one bullet.
If it was an open map such as a square or a forest where both sides were fighting head-on, the scout firing slowly and in bursts would definitely suffer compared to the chargers firing across a wide area. Meanwhile, on the acceleration map, it was difficult for the bullets fired to hit the opponent, so it wasn’t certain who would suffer!
30 seconds into the game, the US team was surprised to find that the entire map was completely white, and they couldn’t see where the people of the Chinese team were.
It wasn’t just because the Chinese team wore white clothes and blended in with the ice and snow environment. There was a more critical reason—there were many ice sculptures and forked roads in City of Ice. All members of the Chinese team lurked and started playing hide-and-seek again!
The US team’s scout, Simil, failed to find Pei Feng, but Qin Xueyao found Venus first.
Xueyao was good at moving quickly on various maps. In this game, she held the Ice Blade dagger and slid quickly on the ice, her movements as light and flexible as a skater.
“At 10 o’clock, a sniper was found behind the ice sculpture.,” Qin Xueyao reported the position on the team channel.
At this time, Pei Feng had reached the middle area of the map. The two medics, Shi Xiaobin and Shu Chen, were hiding behind the ice sculpture not far from Pei Feng. Ye Qingming glanced at the positions of his teammates on the mini-map and said, “Xueyao, go and lure away the sniper. Come on, Xiao Pei. Seduce them.”
Pei Feng and Qin Xueyao acted at the same time.
Qin Xueyao jumped to reveal her whereabouts. After all, Venus was an experienced sniper in the competition. The enemy dangled in front of his eyes, and he shot reflexively.
The marksmanship of a world-class sniper was very accurate. Even if Qin Xueyao only appeared for 0.1 seconds, she was shot dead by Venus. This showed how fast his reaction ability was.

Xueyao became the first victim.
At the same time, Pei Feng appeared in the middle area of the map.
The US team had three people in the middle area. They were a charger and two assaulters. The moment Pei Feng appeared, the three people fired frantically like hunters who had caught their prey.
Deafening gunshots rang out in the center of the city. No matter how fast he moved, Pei Feng couldn’t resist the gunfire of three people. In the blink of an eye, he was swept into a hornet’s nest and fell into a pool of blood.

The heads ratio was 2:0. The US team gained the advantage after the opening of the game.
The domestic audience members found it incomprehensible and were puzzled.
[Xueyao and Pei Feng sent heads at the same time? There was no more than a second between them.]
[I can’t understand the positioning of the Chinese team.]
[It is a mess. What type of tactic is this? Everyone is playing their own game?]
From a god’s perspective, the Chinese team was indeed in disarray.
Shi Xiaobin and Shu Chen could’ve saved Pei Feng, but they didn’t do so. Ye Qingming continued, “Medics, move to the left and right and lead the three melee combatants of the US team to Point A.”
The moment Shi Xiaobin and Shu Chen received the instructions, they immediately ran quickly to the left and right.
The members of the US team heard footsteps and the three people split up to pursue the enemies separately. The assaulter Ernest chased Shi Xiaobin while the other two chased Shu Chen.
Using the help of the ice acceleration, Shi Xiaobin and Shu Chen ran quickly like they were on roller skates!
Several people from the US team were unable to catch up for a while. The viewers in the live stream room couldn’t help laughing when they saw this. Was this a ‘you chase and I run’ parkour game?
Unknowingly, Shi Xiaobin and Shu Chen led the three members of the US team to Point A designated by Ye Qingming.
This was an area similar to a small maze. There were a large number of ice sculptures and many downhill sections. They could take a ‘slide’ and experience the feeling of flying.
Shi Xiaobin quickly hid behind an ice sculpture. Ernest, the assaulter of the US team, was about to turn around and kill Shi Xiaobin when a clear gunshot suddenly sounded behind him—bang!
[’CHN-Leaf’ has used the Sand Eagle-Black Dragon to kill ‘USA-Nest’ with a headshot!]
Ye Qingming, who had been waiting in ambush here for a long time, suddenly sat on a slide from a high place and slid all the way down. He was as fast as lightning and shot the enemy on the side while sliding down.
Under the influence of such a fast speed, Ye Qingming’s marksmanship was still very accurate. He looked cool and relaxed as he took away Ernest’s head in one shot.
After killing Ernest, Ye Qingming used the acceleration of the slide to make a light and flexible turn at the end of the slide. He slid right behind the other two close-combat players of the US team.
The two of them were chasing Shu Chen when they saw Shu Chen suddenly stop and put up a bulletproof light panel.
Stay and Rich were teammates from the same club. The two of them cooperated very well. They fired fiercely from the left and right, so that Shu Chen couldn’t avoid it.
However, Shu Chen and Ye Qingming used to be teammates!
Shu Chen couldn’t only save people. He could also kill people. Seeing that Yezi was in place, Shu Chen emerged from behind the bulletproof light panel and fired at the same time as Yezi.
Gunshots rang out one after the other.
[’CHN-Leaf’ has used the Sand Eagle-Black Dragon to kill ‘USA-Rich’ with a headshot!]
[’CHN-Leaf’ has used the Red Cross Double Guns to kill ‘USA-Stay’ with a headshot!]
Shu Chen and Ye Qingming tacitly cooperated with each other and got a double kill!
Domestic audience members were excited to see this.
[Yezi was moving so quickly that my eyes couldn’t see it?]
[This is a flying leaf!]
[Sit on the slide from a high place and shoot while sliding. It is really cool!]
[Captain Ye is getting excited~]
[I used to think that Yezi is very crooked. Why do I suddenly think he is a bit happy?]
This wave of killing people on the slide was really full of pressure.
Riding on a slide, under such rapid acceleration, it wasn’t easy to shoot the enemy’s head. It could be seen that Ye Qingming was really trying his best in order to not write a self-criticism.
At the same time, Pei Feng and Qin Xueyao, who had just been killed, resurrected in the southwest corner. Once the two of them were resurrected, they glided quietly and quickly over the ice, circling behind Venus, the sniper of the US team.
This time, Qin Xueyao moved more cautiously. The moment she appeared, she used the ‘flashback’ technique to dodge and hide behind a statue as quickly as possible. Venus, the sniper of the US team, opened the scope to kill her. The moment he opened the scope, Pei Feng calmly pulled the trigger from the side.
[‘CHN-Fred’ has used the Supernova Double Guns to kill ‘USA-Venus’ with a headshot!]
This wave of rapid guerrilla warfare dazzled netizens.
The death notifications on the big screen continued to flash. Ye Qingming sat on the slide and killed two people from the US team. Shu Chen killed one person, and Pei Feng killed another person after being resurrected. The time it took was less than three seconds apart.
The audience’s eyes were dazzled!
The on-site director had a splitting headache and couldn’t switch the camera perspective fast enough. This speed was too fast, right?
In the blink of an eye, the US team’s 2:0 head start advantage was reversed by the Chinese team to 4:2. The three people chasing in the middle of the map didn’t even realize what was happening.
They suddenly died while chasing.
Venus took a deep breath and said, “Resurrect in the northeast corner. They are engaged in accelerated guerrilla warfare and are deliberately disrupting our rhythm. Don’t worry.”
The tactic of the Chinese team wasn’t difficult to understand. Qin Xueyao first sacrificed her life to lure away the US team’s sniper so that the sniper couldn’t support his teammates with long-range firepower. Then they let Pei Feng die, and the medics appear to lure away the US team’s melee combatants. The scout’s ambush solved the close combat players. At the same time, the resurrected Pei Feng and Qin Xueyao went around to attack Venus.
It was a clever strategy to use a quick guerrilla battle to defeat them separating, using the time difference to launch sneak attacks.
