In Broca Beach, Bullet-Proof leads the Drug Elimination Force (DEF) in a raid on Headman's drug operation. The DEF consists of Bullet-Proof, Cutter, Shockwave, Mutt, and Junkyard. Headman and his Headhunters fire on the DEF and flee. Fred LXV's wife attacks Headman, but he guns her down as he gunned down her husband. She dies in Bullet-Proof's arms, as Cutter notices her weapon was built on Cobra Island. Mutt and Shockwave chase Headman into a funhouse, where he and his Headhunters have set up an ambush.
In the Gulf of Mexico, Flint leads the Eco-Warriors in an assault on a Cobra Toxo-Lab. Flint is shot down by a Sludge Viper, but the Joes are able to surround Cesspool. Cesspool gains the upper hand by shooting holes in the Plasmatox tanks, so the Eco-Warriors have to contain that. Cesspool is able to capture Flint and Clean-Sweep, but Flint will not give any information besides name and serial number.
In Trans-Carpathia, Snake Eyes holds the Red Master hostage as Ninja Force is in a standoff with Slice, Dice, and the Red Ninjas. Slice throws a sword that impales the Red Master, ending the hostage situation. In order to minimize losses, Slice proposes a one on one match between himself and Snake Eyes. Snake Eyes gains the upper hand, but the Red Master returns and reveals his identity to the two groups.
