December 12, 2021, Vulcan Specter fights and kills FauxFace after it attacks the city of Santiago, Chile.[5]

In one of several missions with Striker Eureka, Vulcan Spector is deployed against the Category IV Kaiju, Spinejackal. Spinejackal uses its panoramic vision to avoid or deflect most of the attacks from Specter before its beheaded by Striker Eureka.[6]

In 2024, Vulcan Specter and Striker Eureka are deployed into the city of Medellin, Columbia to fight the Kaiju Vermin.[4] Specter is able to kill Vermin using its Atomic Drill to tear through Vermin's head. However, parasites living within the Kaiju emerged and attack the city. The Parasite are eventually killed by Vulcan Spector and Striker Eureka.[4]
