Story : Hell's minions have overrun
the world. Citizens have banded
together into Militias to fight the
onslaught, but their every effort is
hampered by a human traitor called
the Rakehell. Your job is to hunt
down and kill every Rakehell. Only
Rakehells count toward your kill
total. They move fast and use
railguns, so watch your health and
know when to withdraw.
