Synopsis:
Ever have one of those days? The jeep you're driving stalls while in enemy territory during a rainstorm.
Your machine gun and rifle don't work because they got wet during the rain. The enemy burp gun you capture
has an empty clip. But then, the enemy potato masher thrown at you turns out to be a dud. Yeah, we've all had the kind of day where you have to take out the enemy with nothing but your fists, because nothing works.
