With Baby Magnum, Snow Quake, and Active Sledge disabled, City Slicker proceeds to lead his seven Objects to destroy a nearby immigrant city. Granny, fearing for her family that is living in the city, abandons her post to try and rescue them. Meanwhile, Qwenthur deduces that City Slicker’s sick extra Objects are actually decoys, with inferior armor and run by an AI. Before he and Havia can do anything, they are captured by the Battlefield Cleaning Service, a Capitalist Enterprise private military company who are trapped on Victoria Island due to a failed operation. Qwenthur uses a stash of diamonds he stole from the Kamchatka mines to hire the Battlefield Cleaning Service to assist him in stopping City Slicker. They then contact Granny and tell her to return to her post and repair Baby Magnum, as they will handle the defense of the city.
