Hundreds of reporters arrive in the area, hoping to provide an unprecedented scoop to their viewers / readers. Unfortunately for them, one of these reporters discovers that something else is produced at the “Baby Milk Factory”. The reporter is captured, along with his colleagues, who learn that the General is setting up a army of mutants and nuclear weapons.
It's up to the Doomsday Squad, made up of Captain Carnage and Major Mayhem, to invade the Akhboob base, eliminate the soldiers, destroy the mutants and save all the hostages, eventually capturing Akhboob himself. When he loses a life, the player receives a rapid-fire pistol, instead of the standard one.
