"Take out the Big Gun sounded simple enough, except the Strogg were waiting. You, and a few marines like you, are the lucky ones. You've made it down in one piece and are still able to contact the fleet. The Gravity Well, the Strogg's newest weapon in its arsenal against mankind, is operational. With the fleet around Stroggos, 5% of ground forces surviving, and that number dwindling by the second, your orders have change: free your comrades. Destroy the Gravity Well."


The Gravity Well has trapped the Earth Fleet in orbit above the planet. One of the marines who managed to land must now make his way to the Gravity Well to destroy it and free the fleet above and disable the entire defenses of the planet.
