    Top of the ship with the captain "ok, drop the anchor I guess...boringest part of this" total silence while the crew mates wait. Where the anchor is: A fucking warzone "ITS TIME TEAM LETS GO, OPEN THE HATCH!!!" Opens giant metal doors to the violent cold open sea "RELEASE THE CHAIN, CAREFUL MEN HOLD ON" Two guys tied to the wall as one holds the balance of the other, whose hammering down a lock the size of a baby elephant using a mallet the size of him. "ALRIGHT, Time for the most exiting part of working a ship, DROP THE ANCHOR!!!" As they let go of a 100 ton mile long chain holding a hunk of metal the size of a car, as it falls the chain hitting the floor and sounding like a mechine gun of tanks is shooting a hundred rounds a second in one single room as the team in said room right next to this explosion of pure metal while holding for dear life and trying not to get hit by this massive chain or fall into an endless bottomless sea of blackness and death. Just imagine the trailer for Battlefield One happening in a single room.
