The Blue Eagle

Okay, firstoff, this is my first fanfiction and im only 15, so sorry if you felt like you wasted your time with this. but I hope you enjoy


The world has plunged into darkness. The zone has expanded to the point where there is no start to the zone and no end. Factions control whole desolated cities, whole countries have been anihilated. The militaries of the world have banded together to defend the surviving citizens. Much of the global population has been largely wiped out. The original chernobyl exclusion zone, however, is still the centre. Many people still have gathered there to try and make a living, or to just survive, including the mercenaries

18 Nov. 2015 6AM

The young merc woke up to his commander yelling at him,
"Knight, KNIGHT!!! Wake up! You have a job."
Knight lifted his head to the familiar sight of the Blue eagle head on the boxes in north Army warehouses. It was a grey morning as usual, with the zone going haywire it was a rare sight to see good weather. He quickly got out of his sleeping bag and rolled it up. The commander pointed over to 8 G36's lying in some boxes next to a rusty old shopping trolley with aproximately 360 5.56mm rounds already loaded inside it.
"Freedom is running low on supplies and weapons. I want you to take those to the base southeast of here. They are paying us good money for these so make sure they get there safely and on time"
Knight lifted each rifle carefully into the trolley, wondering why a mercenary would be getting such a humiliating job. As he started wheeling he moved his SIG550 to his front, the trolley grinding as he pushed. The commander had one last piece of advice
"knight," he looked back "watch for the bloodsucker village, willya?"
"yes sir," he grunted back

6:30 AM

Knight slowly trudged the trolley up the hill of the freedom base entrance, trolley in one hand, bolts in the other, looking around for signs of hostility. He came just within sight of the freedomers when he was immidiately halted
"HAL-... hey you're a little far away from a shopping mall, arn't ya?" said a snickering freedom guard.
"Very funny. I need to get these to your leader." he shot back, emotionlessly as a merc should be.
"Cmon man, thats not the attitude to have 'round here. Did you hear about the last guy that had not sense of humor round here? we sent him on a naked walk in the..."
"Shut it." Knight cut the freedomer off. " just point me in the right direction, and i'll be on my way"
"Fine. Just no funny business. It may all be fun, games and weed 'round here, but those snipers arn't stupid. You should go talk to skinflint. HE is the trader/armourer."

Knight walked along the bridge to the Freedom HQ. He chambered a round into his SIG, knowing that with these peoples unserious attitudes against his he might have a better chance in the 'suckers village.
A Moustached man with thick rimmed glasses walked out of the HQ
"Oh, you must be knight. We have been waiting for you. Come, quick. we have to get these rifles to my workshop. Just need to make a few checks. Oh, I'm skinflint by the way, pleasure to meet you,"
Skinflint stuck out a hand to shake, Knight relunctantly shook his hand.

Both men started lifting boxes out of the trolley and into Skinflints workshop, as Knight walked past a room he noticed something perculiar. Two men in US army gear were lying in the beds that were layed out. They looked alive, but in bad shape. A lone Freedomer stood at their side with an aggrivated look on his face.
"What the...?" Knight said, perplexed.
The freedomer looked up " You must be the merc. Hmmm..."
"What are they doing here?"
"These two came with another Stalker from a foreign land," he gulped "we found them in pripyat. They say that they lost contact with the third man, but they told me of his motive, I told the others but they dont care."
"about what?" Knight asked, more intrigued
"This man, is going to try to destroy the zone... Thats where you come in..."

Continued (still wonder if anyones actually following it)

"Who is he?" knight asked
"those two americans say he is one of the last remnants of the almost completely anihilated Australian military. His name is shadow, he is very stealthy and is a very good marksman. Kill him and ill pay you dearl-"
Knight cut him off "Australian? Thats not a good idea... I mean, freedom killing someone allied to Nato probably isnt going to be healty to your relationship with them, even if they don't do it directly."
"Well it's not from Freedom then. It's from Freedoms ideas, yes, but lukash wont do jack shit about it." The Freedomer paused "When the zone expanded we rejoiced, people died, but we could finally acheive true freedom, but then Lukash changed. He stopped caring about the survival of the zone, only the survival of others. He betrayed Freedom, but no-one else saw it."
"I..." Knight stopped. "I don't see how this is going to change my mind on this. Freedom is our only ally in the zone. We are backed by nato. you piss of nato, they will sever all ties, which means us."
"Then tell your superiors this order came from me, Grigov, as a stalker, not from Freedom. I have another source of money. This is not funded by freedom and I will pay you better than the other mercs you are assigned with. Now do you agree?"
"Okay then, umm... Grigov. By the way, my name is Knight." the merc finally agreed.
"Just remember, Don't you dare tell upstairs, Lukash is supporting shadow, and watch out. He is said to be the best marksmen many of these men have seen. AND one more thing, He is with the STRELOK, The one that attempted to destroy the zone first. He has more experience than most of Duty and freedom combined"

19th Nov. 2015 Aprox. 5AM Red Forest

Knight was assigned with 2 other mercs. They were all waiting on the hill just before pripayat. Knight had his binoculars out combing the area for a man in light green Camo.
"Knight, This is Grigov, do you copy?" sounded Knights scratchy radio
"loud and clear, over."
"Shadow and strelok were seen going past the army warehouses at 4 this morning, they should arrive in a few minutes. Get ready"
"Don't worry, he shouldnt be expecting thi-"
suddenly, one of the two mercs with Knight falls over in a pool of blood
"SHIT! HES HERE!"
Knight looks around with his binoculars for a PDA signal. He sights a man with the popular Stalker suit armed with an AK74, sure enough, to the right of him, a man in light green camo with a silenced SR25 slung around his back with an M4A1 in his arms, sprinting up to their location about 300 meters away, dodging anomolies as they walked along the road. Knight lifts his SIG550 to fire at the pair when he hears not-so distant gunfire. He turns to see a small squad of monolith soldiers closing in. Him and the other merc turn to fire on the approaching squad, taking cover by an old car.
"Come on, Keep fir- AGHHHH!!!" The other merc died. Knight paniced. Even though he led the expedition he was the least experienced. He looked at the monolith Stalkers as they fired countless rounds into the car he took cover, thinking how they got that powerful. In just 5 years they went from ruling the uninhabited, to almost total decline and, in the last 2 years, became a ruling worldwide cult, attempting to take the ruins of australia, then he thought, maybe thats what shadow is trying to do. Slowly the firing stopped, The monolithians started being picked off one by one in silenced shots. Knight felt a 7.62x51mm round hit the metal next to him. He looked up. Shadow was approaching
"Oi, You!" said an Australian voice "I better not catch you again. I know your movements. I know some mercs. They have been telling me these things."
Knight just said nothing as the two stalkers passed onward to pripyat.
"You better go after those two. I am not paying you untill the deed is done. If you don't, Ill hunt you down."

Continued...

Knight just stood there, amazed at what he saw.An Australian sniper around the same age as knight, just confidently talking to someone who was trying to kill him. Knight pulled out a bottle of water, he needed the energy and vodka would just make him tired. He had to think of a new plan, looking at the corpses of the freshly-dropped monolith, he spotted a VSS vintorez among the abandoned weapons. He picks it up and partially dissassembles the rifle to check if all the parts were working and searches the bodies for ammo. Sure enough, he found 30 SP-5 and 10 SP-6 rounds. It didnt matter though, he only needed one. Knight may not have been as good a marksman as shadow, but he was still sufficient enough to get one shot, one kill.

He pulled out his SIG and started heading west, towards pripyat.
"Base, This is Knight, we lost 1 merc to target and the other to a Monolith raid. Im remaining. Going forward with mission, over"
"Knight, i suggest you pull back. You are only young, you have potential. Don't waist your life for someones selfish beliefs."
Knight gulped. someone actually cared
"If I don't do it, Ill have an army of fundamentalist freedomers down my throat. Its Damned if I do, Damned if I don't"
"Its up to you, be safe, we can't afford to lose another one after the 2 we just lost today. over"
"roger, over and out."
Knight chuckled at the irony that the commander was worried about losing 3 mercs when he saw in the loss records for 2012, the Nato-zone mercenaries had lost more people in 3 months due to strelok than anyother year.

19 nov. 10pm

"knight, I have a Merc Blackhawk coming to pick you up, looks like this Grigov guy is serious about this job."
Knight looked around, The faint sound of rotor blades could be heard,
"Roger that, sir"
"They will drop you off near the neutral territory near Pripyat(Editors note: Im using the So-called "neutral territory" thats apparantly going to be in Call of Pripyat ). Its the only place Duty and Freedom dont fight it out, but that means no funny business"
"okay."

The Blue-Grey helicopter landed in a whirlwind of leaves and used-wrappings, the Familar Blue Eagle head on the markings. Knight walked towards it, a man in a blue-grey uniform leaned out to pull him up.
"Good to see you. Don't worry about the Lone stalkers, duty or freedom. Us mercs arn't in any wars with any of them" The merc yelled
"Will Shadow and strelok see us?"
"Doesnt matter, this blackhawk makes regular passes over pripy. We provide security for this part of the zone at the moment."
Knight got in and put some headphones from an ipod he had in his ears and switched to the band Dream theater. It was going to be a short flight but he had to make the most of the time he had.

10 minutes later the helicopter stopped moving forward and hovered, slowly lowering. Knight pulled out his rifle, The vintorez still on his back. He looked around as the Helicopter took off again. They had landed near a small building, with a tower.
"Knight, they are about 10 minutes from your position. Get to cover before shadow see's you."
Perfect. Knight put on his nightvision and put away his sig and pulled out his VSS Vintorez. It was a clear night, but it was dark. He climbed to the top of the tower, the moon so bright it shimmered of the vintorez's integral silencer. He had a better plan, it should work this time. He had the true element of surprise this time. he could see the two about 500 metres away, just out of range. Knight switched the rifle to single fire as they got closer, there will be australian blood on the zone ground tonight.

300 metres, knight put his finger to the trigger, in about 150 metres, he will pull the trigger. about 200 metres away, Shadow stopped, pulled up his PDA and ran left, leaving strelok alone. Knight had a dillema, just abandon- or kill shadows guide. That sounded like a good idea. without strelok, shadow would surely get lost and die, not to mention all the brave mercenaries that were slaughtered by the fabled "Gunslinger" would finally get avenged, but then he thought again...
Even though he didn't succeed in destroying the zone, his attempt was legendary throughout all the factions, killing him would only bring down the morale throughout the whole zone, not to mention make him an enemy of EVERYONE. He lowered his vintorez, thinking he will try later when suddely he saw the Glint of a knife come just in front of his throat,
"Bloody persistant, arn't we, Mate?"

p.s. sorry about the delay to all those that followed it. just left it for a while


Knight looked at the blade as It shone In the moonlight. All his endevours, his past, his accomplishments and failures suddenly drifted into his thoughts
I failed her...
The ground shook a bit, Knight didnt know if it was him... or...
"Look mate, I may be australian but I'm not stupid. I know you have been tailing me for the past day." the sky started getting lighter, It was still 0200 so it couldnt have been daylight "I have an important job to do, you are probably being paid by some prick to take me out, so my job is obviously more important. so piss o-"
"shadow! get to cover, the blowout is starting!"
Knight could feel Shadows arm going limp, and shadow passed out. Not knowing what to do, Knight climbed back down the ladder and closed the hatch, leaving shadow at the top. Looking up, Knight could hear light footsteps....
WHACK! He fell down with a thud.

A few minutes later he came to, only to be picked up by a huge figure.
"Where is he?"
Knight stared into the barrel of a Desert Eagle, which looked normal sized in Steloks hands
"I... I left him up there..."
strelok positioned his head upwards, towards the now opened hatch.
"I checked."
Knight gulped, but then realised that he may be getting his pay after all... if strelok doesnt kill him first.
"Why do you care? I'm a merc, I know it sucks to miss out on pay, but, I mean, at least you're alive, right?"
Strelok threw him on the ground and fired right next to his head, the loud .44 magnum round bang echoing around the abondoned building.
"Bloody mercs, always thinking alike. Give me one good reason Why I shouldn't shoot you dead like I've done to hundreds of other mercs, mate".
Knight was puzzled.
"Bloody, mate?"
"when you spend the last week guiding an australian you are bound to pick things up. Anyway, as I was saying, I'm doing this job to try again what I thought at first I succeeded, but failed. I know its not impossible. Maybe if we cant destroy the zone we can just push it back here. However, the monolith have been interested in him for a while. He has some good combat talents. We have to find him."
Knight considered for a second.
"no."
