During a Hunting session, Artyomich was bringing back his game to his truck, only to then see an object slam into the field next to him with smoke emitting out of it, turning out to be a helicopter. He then heads over to see if anyone were to survive, only to find one person attack him in a violent, uncontrollable manner, causing him to grab a nearby rifle unknown to him and shoot the man. He stood there, confused and shaken up by what he just saw. He then see's a huge group of people running at him, screaming at the top of their lungs, and so he drops the rifle and heads back to his truck, driving away in panic...
