Using information gained from Firefly and a new radar shielding device, Cobra Commander begins his assault on the Pit. Spirit takes out a few of the Cobras with a grenade and escapes underground.
Spirit gives Duke a report on the attackers, and Duke prepares the team for the assault and seals all entrances. Airtight and Barbecue fend off a squad of Laser Vipers, but retreat when the B.A.T.s are deployed. The B.A.T.s break through the blast doors and prepare to invade the Pit.
On Cobra Island, Firefly is trapped in the freighter. Firefly activates the brainwashed Ninja Force to free him. He also activates Slice and Dice who prepare a squad of the original B.A.T.s. When Cesspool and Zarana send a team to deal with Firefly, they are ambushed by the B.A.T.s.
