With the revelation that Eddie Riggs is the son of Riggnarok, Rima and the Zaulia join forces with Ironheade to defeat the Drowning Doom and liberate humanity. Lita explains to Eddie that his father was the only one from the Black Tear Rebellion to resist the temptation of the Sea of Black Tears. In order to reach the Sea, they must first pass through the Swamp.
Unlike most Tour Bus escort missions, the player is prompted to ride a Metal Beast instead of the Deuce. Kill Master will opt to stay outside the bus, saying he likes the damp air as it is "good for my complexion."
If Rima is injured, the player can double team with her and ride close to the Thunderhog. Within the Swamp, the player will encounter large groups of Grave Diggers. This is meant as an introduction to the Metal Beast's anti-infantry tactics, which is perfectly suited to large groups of weaker, less resilient enemies.
Along the way the player will encounter a group of Broods, an enemy against which the Metal Beast is less suited. For these enemies, it is recommended that they be killed on foot. The player will eventually reach the Black Tears region, in which they will confront Frightwigs and Brides.Eventually, Mangus will drive into the Dry Ice Mines, at which point he cannot turn around. In the mines, Ironheade finds relative safety, but the ominous threat of an enemy sneak attack looms.
This mission will fail if:
- The player dies.
- Rima dies.
- The Tour Bus is destroyed.
- The player ventures too far ahead of the bus.
- Diary of a Madman -- Ozzy Osbourne
- If the player waits long enough before clearing a path, Mangus will say "Maybe you have to burn the rope?" to which Eddie will respond "It's not that simple!" This is a reference to the flash game "You Have To Burn The Rope", an extremely short and simple platformer.
