There’s an NPC in Alma by the name of Auntie, who gives a quest to kill
Bloodcats, that have a den, that is two sectors to the east (right) of Alma. She
says the Bloodcats have been killing children in the town, and wants it to stop.
So it’s your mission to ﬁnd and kill these wild creatures. After you kill them
all, in order to complete the Bloodcats quest, you must return to Alma and
talk to Auntie again. The same is true of some other quests. Completing this
quest improves Alma loyalty and consequently the mine output. It’s a pretty
fun mission, if you rip the Bloodcats up with mortars and assault weapons. But
if you prefer to kill them using guns, you should use HP ammo, which is more
eﬀective against the Bloodcats. It’s also the ammo of choice against the Bugs if
you’re in Sci-Fi mode. . . Beware! They appear in other several places attacking
you, when you travel outside cities at night.
