Parodies and Spoofs Fanfiction: Deadliest Warrior, Season X - 13. ARC Troopers Vs Predators
AN: To those who don’t know, ARC Stands for Advanced Recon Commandos, they are clone troopers who are advanced, like Cody and Rex from the Star Wars Clone Wars Saga.
The ARC Trooper
Elite soldiers of the Clone Wars, whose skills were only matched by Jango Fett.
Hunter’s whose culture is based on nothing but hunting.
Who is Deadliest?
Bren turned from his seat and chuckled a bit
“This is a match up a lot of people have been waiting to see. Two elite warriors who both used powerful tech in combat.” Bren said
Rommel was looking over the table of weapons
“Guns, guns, and even more guns. Lets face it, this is one gun fight that will be a bloody showdown” Rommel said
Both sides are known to bring a powerful arsenal of weaponry
For the ARC Troopers they bring to the fight
WESTAR-M5 blaster rifle
DC-17 hand blaster
Z-6 rotary blaster cannon
The Predator’s bring to the fight
To test the weapons for the ARC Troopers, the team brought in a Veteran of the Clone Wars, Clone Trooper CC-2224 also known as Cody. A master weapon’s smith and commander, he knows the right ways to lead a team.
To test for the Predators, they brought in one who goes by Scar, a predator who hunted in the Antarctic region and took down a Xenomorph Queen.
“Both of these warriors are powerful, but to be honest, I got to give my edge to the ARC Trooper’s, they have skills in hand to hand combat and firearms, and lets face it, seeing one lone ARC Trooper take down a whole base of droids on his own is most certainly impressive” Rommel said
“The Predators are hunters, skilled in stealth, hand to hand combat, and they are honor bound to the hunt. You can’t look at them and not respect them. That’s where my edge is going” Bren said
For the first weapon they went over to the firing range to test out a wicked long rang rifle.
Cody was standing out in his clone armor, minus the helmet as he held his rifle in his hands.
“This is the Westar- M5. A Powerful rifle that can be full auto, semi auto or just plain one bullet laser at a time. This one I’m holding is the same one I came out of the tanks in” Cody said as Bren and Rommel looked over the weapon
“Very impressive, and I assume it is powerful against organics” Bren said
“These are mostly to take out clankers but the laser has enough force to kill an organic, so I assume with the target you put out in the field, you want me to shoot it down” Cody said
“Of course” Rommel said pointing far out into the field where they could see a pig carcass hanging, ready to be shot.
“How many shots you think it will take to hit it?” Russell asked
“One” Cody said taking aim and he pulled the trigger, the gun fired the laser bolt and it hit the pig dead on right in the chest.
“Let’s take a look at the damages” Bren said and they went over to the pig which had a small hole in the side coming right out of the other end
“Wow, I can see right though the pig that is a clean shot, if this hit a vital organ, it would be cooked and so would the victim” Russell said
“Lets see what Scar has to say” Bren said turning to the large Predator who was mask less, he was typing on his wrist band and words came on, onto Bren’s laptop
“He says, his plasma caster will turn the target into ash” Bren said reading it out loud
“Alright then, let’s see how he does” Cody said as Scar took aim with his shoulder mounted cannon. The cannon’s laser sight aimed the three small dots onto the target and he fired a bolt of plasma which turned the pig into ash
“Ok I don’t even need to know that one hit equals death” Russell said
“So its easy to tell that the plasma caster is better in terms of accuracy with the laser sight, the power is beyond the rifle, not so much in terms of ammo, but it goes without saying that the Predators get the edge” Bren said
“We also have added the data from the previous testing of the DC-17 pistol to the data, but still looking in terms of combat skills, the predator with his plasma caster, they still have the ability to switch between guns but let’s face it, and the plasma caster will do more damage then the both off them. Edge Predator” Rommel said
“But we still have one more firearm to test for the ARC Troopers, and that is something I find very impressive” Rommel said looking at Cody who held his Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon
“So this is modeled after a portable Gattling gun” Bren said, “I like it”
“Yes, many Clones enjoy it too, I prefer rifles because this is a tad on the heavy side” Cody said taking aim at the 10 targets on small bots
“Alright, I’m gonna give you 30 seconds to take out as many moving targets, think you can do this?” Bren asked
“Do it, I was cloned for this” Cody said as the Blaster Cannon began to warm up and spin.
“Fire” Bren called out and Cody set out a spray of lasers onto the targets and it was obvious that one of these can take out a whole battalion of troops on its own.
The 30 seconds passed and all of the targets had laser burns and holes.
“Yikes. Not one target missed, I got to say that is impressive” Bren said
“I try” Cody said
“Comparing the blaster cannon and the plasma caster, its no contest, the blaster cannon can take out multiple opponents quickly and in deadly force, edge ARC Troopers” Russell said
Edge: ARC Troopers
Cody held up his thermal detonator and smirked a bit
“All Clones carry one of these, all ARC Troopers; carry three in all combat situations. One of these could take out a small building” Cody said
“Yeah we have experience with them, and let me just say, I enjoy seeing them in action, so why not throw that into that target house we got, just to prove how lethal they are” Bren said
Cody pressed the button on top and threw it into the building, a moment later the explosion took it out leaving nothing but scarred earth and some debris.
Bren was laughing and Rommel had a grin on his face
“That never gets old does it Rommel” Bren said
“No it does not” Rommel said
Scar held up his smart disk and pointed at five gel torsos that were set up ahead of them
“I don’t need to read out any message to know he means business” Bren said as Scar threw the disk which opened up blades on it as it spun. The disk cut up all the heads in a graceful fashion and the blades retracted as Scar grabbed it in midflight.
Everyone clapped in approval, even Cody did.
“Alright looking at both weapons, I like the spinning disk but comparing it to a thermal detonator, lets face it the disk just won’t be able to kill as much as a grenade, edge ARC Troopers” Bren said
Edge: ARC Troopers
Scar held up his spear like staff and his wrist bands opened up some claw blades
“The Combistaff and wrist blades, very wicked looking weapons” Bren said as Scar nodded his head in agreement
Rommel pointed to 5 gel torsos set up ahead of them
“right, show us what these can do in combat” Rommel said and Scar roared and ran to the targets, he first slammed the spear into the first dummy and pulled it out just as quickly as it went in, and then threw it into the head of the next dummy impaling the head.
The third dummy was cut through the neck by the wrist blades and the forth was slammed in the left side by a bladed punch. The last target was slammed down onto the ground and impaled through the top of the skull. When the carnage was over Scar let out a roar of victory
“Alright, remind me not to piss off Crabface, because I really don’t want to end up like them” Russell said pointing at the now cut up gel torsos
“Right through the brain on the first target, that spear went though the bone like it was nothing while the second target was impaled like Vlad’s victims. The third one’s neck was cut open and the arteries were cut wide open. The skull in both the fourth and fifth one, completely shattered, instant death and if they didn’t die instantly it would be less then five seconds of pure pain” Russell said
Cody drew his vibrosword and nodded
“I admit, I have a lot to work against, but lets see how much I can do” He said as he ran at his targets decapitating the heads right off the necks, in no time at all, the targets were beheaded
“Not bad, nothing but clean cuts, not as brutal as the Predator’s weapons but nevertheless a good tool” Russell said
“Alright looking at the melee weapons, I like the sword, but the wrist blades and combistaff is nothing but pure carnage waiting to happen, Edge Predators” Bren said
“So before we can continue we also have to check out one more tool the predator’s have, it’s their Bio Mask. First off it’s got infrared sensors, it can scan for targets, and its used for using the Plasma caster” Bren said, “It even lets them cloak to blend in the surroundings”
“It isn’t a weapon per say, but it is needed for the simulation” Russell said
Before the simulation can begin, they must look at one more factor that can not be tested in the lab. An X Factor.
The ARC Trooper’s X Factor is the clone process. All clones are programmed to be loyal to the republic yet allow them to think like an individual. In order to create powerful commandos, Jango Fett, the original being to be cloned, trains the ARC Trooper’s in his own personal skills giving each ARC Trooper skills to be a one man killing machine.
The Predator’s X Factor is Honor. In their culture, they hunt for honor. The greater the trophy the more honor they achieve, the ones with the most respect and honor are given great prizes of leadership, weapons, and history.
“Between the two, I want to say the ARC Troopers have the better X Factor, they are trained by the man who essentially gave birth to them; being clones as well they have a brotherhood with each other as well. Honor is well and good but the clones stand by each other to the end” Rommel said
Edge: ARC Troopers
Now Bren will impute all the data into a state of the art simulation program. As both sides operate in small cells, Bren will set the simulator to simulate a 4 on 4 squad battle. To make sure the battle isn’t won by a lucky blow, Bren will simulate the battle 1000 times to declare a winner.
Who will win?
It shows a lot of clones in a mess hall eating together
It shows the Predator’s without masks on their ship, looking down on Earth from a window
It shows a Predator who is cloaked ready to ambush a couple of marines
Vs Powerful Strikes
It shows an ARC Trooper duel wielding two pistols shooting and taking down multiple droids on his own
It shows an ARC Trooper giving a mission briefing to a squad of clones
It shows a Predator holding his combistaff as a Xenomorph faces off against him
“Lets start this one up” Bren said hitting the last key
The Simulation opens up outside an Abandoned Mining facility; Four Predators walk out of a nearby Jungle and survey the landscape on top of a large hill
On the other side a Squad of 4 ARC Troopers step out and look around the area. One held a Blaster Cannon, while the held two small blasters and a sheathed sword, the other two carried an M5 blaster each.
The Predators turned on their cloaking device and went their separate ways. 1 went down near the clones; the other two went off inside of the large power plant nearby. The Last one, who was the leader stood back and watched what was going to unfold.
The clone leader looked around, thinking he heard something when out of the blue came the flying disk which hit the neck of one of the M5 carrying Clone troopers.
“Open Fire!” The Leader called out and the Blaster Cannon wielding trooper fired in the direction of where the disk came out and the laser blasts hit their mark. The predator’s cloaking device stopped working and the clones looked at the alien.
“Check the power plant, there may be more” The Leader said and the other clones nodded and ran inside. The leader stood outside waiting for someone to come out. Little knowing he was being watched by a cloaked Predator
The two clones looked around the area wondering what it was that attacked them.
It cuts to a thermal view of a Predator who’s targeting reticule was aiming right at the clone with the Blaster Cannon
The plasma bolt fired from the shoulder hitting the clone dead on
The companion open fired in the direction of the bolt and retreated back into a corridor where he waited for what ever it was to come to him.
“Come on, I got a present for you” The trooper muttered as he held his M5 up ready for the Predator.
He waited and then he heard the tell tale clicking sound of the alien and he turned around and fired.
The Predator’s cloaking device turned off and he chuckled to himself
“Too easy” He said
Outside the ARC Leader sat down on a nearby rock setting one of the blaster’s down, he removed his helmet wiping his brow
“Damn hot out here” He muttered, the cloaked figure that was the Predator leader slowly made his way down the hill
Back inside of the plant the Trooper noticed he was in the generator room, or at least near one of the generators. He walked past a sign that said, “Caution, Flammable”
Out of the blue a combistaff flew right at the clone hitting him in the leg
“Damn it my leg” He called out and he saw the predator walking towards him as his cloaking field dissipated
“So you want a fight eh, take this” He called out pulling out his rifle but the predator was too fast and grabbed the clone by his neck and the clone began to gasp for air.
The Predator’s wrist blades popped out and he was ready to cut up the ARC Trooper when it heard a sound, it looked down to see in the clone’s right hand, the activated thermal detonator
The predator roared in anger as the grenade went off setting off the flammable gas and causing a large explosion which took out the plant.
The ARC Leader got up and was surprised
“What happened!” He called out picking up his pistols and about to put his helmet back on when he noticed in front of the fire a small bit of movement
He fired at it and it groaned a bit. The Predator’s cloaking field dissipated and it snarled as it drew its combistaff and its wrist claws came out
“So you want a fight huh” The Clone said drawing his sword, “Then bring it on”
The Predator threw his staff at the clone who side stepped just in time to then swing at the alien but the predator’s claw’s blocked the sword and the other one went into the clone’s chest causing him to cough up blood.
The Predator slammed the clone off and then the last thing the dying ARC Trooper saw was the Predator picking up his combistaff and then slamming it into his neck.
The Predator roared in triumph.
“Out of 1000 battles the Predator won 710 times against the clones 290 victories, this was mostly due to the stealth skills that they had along with the powerful weapons” Bren explained
Plasma Caster: 243
Wrist Blades: 124
Smart Disk: 167
WESTAR-M5 blaster rifle: 68
DC-17 hand blaster: 57
Z-6 rotary blaster cannon: 72
Thermal Detonator: 67
“The better man, er species won this fight, I salute their power and I have learned many new things today myself” Cody said saluting to the camera
The final Scene shows the Predator taking the helmet of the ARC Leader back with him as he walked up the hill.
