One of the older traders tosses Jack an old, beaten-up laser pistol. "No charge, kid. We get out of this alive, consider it hazard pay."
Jeremiah thinks he could probably jury-rig a connection to the suit's radio system though some of the damaged systems (usually this would be impossible, as the radio is integrated with the suit's internal systems, but the damage it has taken has granted access to systems otherwise unavailable). It shouldn't even take that long.
Of course, the only vertibird the base had is now sitting in pieces about a click away. The chance of the Brotherhood getting backup to the outpost in time is virtually nil.
Justin shifts his aim. The battle around Jason is chaotic and wild, and only through years of honed training is Justin able to hit a Legionnaire without hitting his cousin. The Legionnaire pulls away from Jason (who is busy trading blows with his comrade anyway, neither making much headway) and charges towards the Keyestone line.
Meanwhile, Michael sweeps an arm, ordering the Knights from the outpost forward. He rises from his firing position to follow the surging Knights forward when, rather suddenly, his head explodes. The thundercrack sound of a high-powered rifle follows the explosion, reaching the ears of the Brotherhood heartbeats after the bullet strikes down the Knight.
One of the outpost Knights yells out, "SNIPER!" and the Brothers quickly take cover.
