|Synopsis1={{Picsneeded}}
 
In a highway in the desert, the Joes provide escort to a truck carrying an experimental laser core. Despite the high level of security, Cobra, nonetheless, makes a daring attempt to take the laser core from the team. Cobra Commander himself leads the ambush. A series of well-hidden attack points cut the joes off from the truck carrying the laser core. A Cobra transport helicopter hovers over the truck's trailer and several Cobra Troopers take the laser core out of the trailer. Duke uses the JUMP jet pack and goes on top of the trailer in the hope of delaying the Cobras long enough for the other Joes to reach him. Snake-Eyes soon joins him and despite their best efforts, they are themselves caught in the netting carrying the core away from the trailer. In the ensuing chaos, Cobra Commander falls of the trailer and into the hands of Gung-Ho. The Joes have the Commander but Cobra escapes with the laser core. With Duke gone, Flint takes command of the Joe Team and organizes a pursuit group.

Down in the Pit of Chaos, Flint actually managed to survive the windy ordeal. Night has fallen and he can't find his two other comrades. As if things couldn't get any worse, rain starts falling. The creeper vines start growing and he is caught in its coils.
