While on a peril-laden mission to track a missing team of soldiers, the hard-as-nails U.S. Army Ranger, Captain Natalie Artemis, and her elite brothers-in-arms find themselves transported to an alternate universe. There, trapped in a barren desert-world rife with formidable adversaries and subterranean sand-dwelling beasts, for the first time, Captain Artemis and her squad are shocked to discover that their otherwise destructive military weaponry is now entirely inadequate to take down the enemy. But, unexpectedly, in their desperate battle for survival, the team stumbles upon a mysterious local huntsman, whose superior combat skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the mighty creatures. Is there an escape from the prison realm? Above all, what does it take to become a fearless monster hunter? Written by Nick Riganas

The cyclic rate of the XM196/GAU-17 Minigun is between 2000-6000 rounds per minute. The sound from the vehicle mounted gun is substantially slower, sounding more like an M249 SAW or similar. It should be almost a buzz of sound by comparison. See more »


Hunter: Bitch!.
Artemis: Bait? You're funny.
