Rico Esperanzo was one of the best student from the academy who dreamt to become the greatest revolutionist from the history book but he had a lot to learn about his responsibility, heeded by his family and he understand this. After the discussion with his parents, Rico was enlisted to the military where he'll be trained by strict, rude, and arrogant drill sergeant. There he also met his fellow recruits, Diego Mantisedo, Josefina Mantiza, Jugo and Jingo Selvaraña. After their training at the military base, they were trained outside of the base to push their limits into the ultimate test.
After their ultimate test, however, Rico became a little beaten when he pushed too much over his limits and challenged his drill sergeant which he was defeated in a fist fight until they received the distress signal coming from the village nearby and overheard that the Toxic Army have destroyed Rico's home city when he heard the terrible news. Rico wants revenge but he was rejected while others were forcefully joined their sergeant as they've formed into a ill-prepared special forces unit and sent into the battle against the Toxic Troopers. However, Rico doesn't give up as he followed them far behind to the battle where this so-called ill-prepared unit holding the Toxic Troopers off from the civilians which they did as Rico helped them and then helping his drill sergeant then his captain but he died in nobel death but Rico tried to saved him until his Aura was unlocked and used his newfound powers to defeat the Toxic Troopers and their super tank in one blow. After the Toxic Troopers are defeated, Rico is appointed as the new captain by his predecessor to lead his unit and made his right decisions: helping civilians and collect the corpses to count the dead.
After securing the village, Captain Rico and his unit decided to go deep into the jungles of Toxiconia where he will start the revolution with guerrilla tactics by the books as he taught and trained them.
For three months, Captain Rico's unit have carried out their own missions to help the resistance against the Toxic Troopers and their evil allies throughout Toxiconia and the occupied territories like ambushes, sabotages, raids on military base and occupied villages, and averting executions from the jungle to the streets. Along the way, more members from special forces units have joined their ranks and continue their battle against the Toxic Troopers as well to survive.
On the next day, Captain Rico and his unit entered the small town where the Toxic Troopers and their evil allies stationed there and raided stealthy. They've cleared each district and saved the civilians as well freeing the prisoners of war. Then, they've fought and battled the massive forces of Toxic Army at the base nearby then suddenly a friendly unit of three, led by the legendary Commander Francisco Chaves, appeared out of nowhere and assisted them to capture the enemy base and liberated the small town. After the battle is over, Captain Rico and his unit are relieved that they were founded by them while he was amazed to meet with once a legendary revolutionist now the commanding officer. But before they returned to the base, they heard the agony screams of the remaining Toxic Troopers and explosion and they rushed to investigate and found someone who cause the noises but also killing the remaining hostile forces: Hernandes Zorthanchez, the ex-soldier of the Toxic Army who have escaped from his prison cell and killing all remaining Toxic Troopers in cold blood, making the big pile of corpses. Captain Rico tried to restrain him but Commander Chaves intervene politely and successfully restrained him diplomatically and Hernandes gladly joined the unit.

After the celebration and the mission briefing, Captain Rico and his unit were sent back into Toxiconia to stop General Toxic from launching his biological missile on Insectonia in his secret base but they've to find it first as they've carried out their missions as they've rescued the hostages, disrupted their supply line to the Toxic Troopers, and intercepted the convoy carrying with chemical agents for the missile, leading to General Toxic's secret base. After their missions is complete and the information about General Toxic's secret base, the anti-biohazard unit found the location of the missile and infiltrated the base to delay their countdown of the missile launch but then the Insectonian Military Forces have assaulted their base and they have no choice but to fight their way to reach the missile. As they've reached the launch tower and heading to the top of the tower via the elevator, they were encountered by General Toxic's lieutenant, Lieutenant Anthrax, and Captain Rico fought his rival and defeated him in a fierce fight. As they've reached the top of the tower, they encountered their nemesis, General Toxic himself, and they have to stop them before he launched the missiles but not before they took out his elites as Captain Rico goes after him while his fellow allies hold them off and shutting it down. As he have reached on the top of the missile, Captain Rico battled General Toxic in a intensive sword fight. Captain Rico was about to fall off by General Toxic but he managed to kick him off from the missile but he was pulled off by his nemesis and fall into their deaths. Fortunately, Captain Rico managed to escape, grabbed General Toxic alive, and placed the Semtex plastique bomb on the missile before it launched into the airspace. As the missile launched away from the secret base into airspace, Captain Rico detonated the missile before reaching onto Insectonian airspace, averting his evil plan once and for all and ending the war effectively.
With General Toxic and his lieutenant and his evil army are defeated, they've completed the mission and the world is finally at last in peace. Captain Rico and his unit earned their rest but they will called once again if General Toxic and his evil allies from the Warlords threaten the world with their Weapons of Mass Destruction.
