The First Battle of the Field was the first battle of the Hicks War, that occurred in Fort Munhall Military District in the Republic of Ultamiya, on May 16th, 2011. The battle was fought during one of David Salapa's evening trips to Fort Munhall, but did not really start until A. Hicks appeared in the district.

Background

At about 5:20 PM, Salapa left for Fort Munhall, taking with him three weapons, the XRanger 2000, a Maverick REV-6, and a shortsword. He found three siblings playing basketball, but at first ignored them and took his place on top of the Fort. When they came over to investigate his weapons, he started discussion with them, and eventually they allowed him to test the XRanger with them.

Entrance of the Insurgency

About 20 minutes following the initial entry, Hicks entered the district and the other three directed Salapa's fire towards him. He then grabbed a stick. C., the youngest of the three Petermens, also grabbed a stick and fought with him at the Open Field while Salapa kept up covering fire. Taunted by Hicks, he, G. and B. made their way to the Field also. Soon he was chased out of the gate facing the road to the Capital District.

Fight back in

Hicks appeared to retreat, however when Salapa and C. checked over, he was found to be hiding on the ground. He retreated further, though to always come back. Eventually he was trapped behind a car with Salapa's XRanger being held at him. He then made a surprise maneuver, going around to the front gate and up into the Fort. He was chased up, but then fell back down.

"Around and trapped"

Hicks then spent well into the 6:00 PM hour just going around the fort, dodging Maverick and Ranger fire. One shock came when G. fell down a circular staircase, bruising her ankle. She later appeared to be fine.

Continuing to circle the fort, Hicks was hit twice with the Ranger; once in the head and once in the chest. At 6:30 PM, he finally attempted to storm up the fort, only to be greeted with stick and Ranger fire. He then climbed in the tallest slide and firing ceased about 2 minutes later.

  • XRanger 2000 (Note that this is the first time the Ranger has been used in real battle)
