The Joe team travels to Trans-Carpathia to assault the Silent Castle. Stalker, Wild Bill, Hawk, Duke, and Gung Ho are in a Tomahawk, and Snake Eyes and Scarlett in an A.W.E. Striker. Wild Bill takes out the guns blocking Snake Eyes' way.
Destro meets Snake Eyes and Scarlett at the castle doors, using his wrist rockets to destroy the A.W.E. Striker. Wild Bill is able to maneuver to retrieve Scarlett, but Snake Eyes is left behind, seemingly unconscious.
Destro tells Billy, Storm Shadow and the Baroness to prepare for battle. Storm Shadow informs Dr. Mindbender that Snake Eyes is able to stop his own heartbeat and appear lifeless.
A squad of Vipers attempts to throw Snake Eyes into an incinerator, but Snake Eyes revives himself and defeats the Vipers. Destro, Cobra Commander, and Storm Shadow arrive to find the defeated Vipers, and Cobra Commander realizes that Snake Eyes is after the satellite control module.
Wild Bill eludes some Cobra Mambas and then circles back to the castle. Snake Eyes uses one cannon to eliminate another giving Wild Bill a clear path. Scarlett goes to help Snake Eyes, and they are able to defeat Storm Shadow. Duke gets a hold of the control module as Cobra has Scarlett and Snake Eyes surrounded.
