*A past event unfolds in the form of a flashback, hinting at a little mystery regarding Van and Vanessa’s involvement in helping Claudia form Warbeast Battlefront.*
On a former nazi-occupied plane, Vanessa is working under pressure to reassemble a mounted MG-42 from within a half-destroyed home. Far in front of her is an abandoned nazi-bannered 5-storey building about to be engulfed by a toxic cloud of black gas resembling a pyroclastic flow. Running away from it and making their way through the building is her brother Van carrying an injured Claudia, who Vanessa is preparing to provide cover for after they fell behind. Between Vanessa and the building are up to 100 entrenched German soldiers and mortar teams above her, all preparing to delay the advancing Xikaeda infantry.
Plasma beams and heat ray are being blind-fired by the Xikaeda through the cloud of gas, missing and impacting various points near Vanessa’s location, burning and reducing unlucky soldiers into a bloody mess upon impact. Mortars bombard the inside of the approaching gas, lighting up the smoke in fiery flashes indicating the destruction of the Xikaeda machines that were shooting in Vanessa’s direction. Shortly after Van makes it out of the abandoned building a swarm of injured and burning Xikaeda infantry emerge from the smoke. Every soldier emerges from the trench to charge the incoming Xikaeda to keep them away from Van and Claudia, assisted by Vanessa who fixes the MG-42 and opens fire on the swarm.
Amid the running & gunning, bayonet charges, exploding bodies and tearing of throats, feral Xikaeda creatures spawn into the battle from what appears to be ball-lighting. Vanessa riddles one of them with bullets shortly after it spawns behind Van. After Vanessa saves them, the entire nazi-bannered building explodes into a fiery inferno, incinerating many remaining soldiers close by. Towering over the burning ruins, emerging from the black gas, a three-legged Xikaeda war machine reveals itself before them.
Van makes it closer to Vanessa’s MG nest, who notices a burning allied fighter plane about to crash into the building that she’s in after losing a dogfight against a Xikaeda fighter. The Xikaeda fighter emits a deafening rumbling noise while flying and Van equips himself and Claudia with a gas mask upon hearing this. Vanessa abandons the overheating MG and dives to cover to avoid the fire and shrapnel of the plane crashing near her, followed by the Xikaeda fighter flying over her while emitting a trail of toxic black gas like a crop duster. Van reaches his sister just in time to to cover her face with another gas mask.
Some time later, on the coast of France, thousands of British, German and French soldiers are boarding ships to be evacuated. Van, Vanessa and Claudia are among them.
Claudia has become well enough to walk on her own again but with her head wrapped in a bandage to hide some sort of head injury. Van and Vanessa appear to be escorting her onboard.
