What starts as a desert survival exercise for the Joes turns into a fight for survival, with Cobra soldiers sent to find the Pit. Unarmed and out of communication, Cover Girl, Downtown, and Tripwire must outwit, outlast, and outkill Cobra's best if they want to stay alive and prevent the disclosure of the Pit's secret location.
