  • Wiz: Before there was Red vs. Blue, there was Project Freelancer.

  • The Freelancers were highly-trained soldiers with experimental weaponry and a mission so secret, not even they knew what it was.

  • Boomstick: Kind of stupid in hindsight, but these were true soldiers.

  • The biggest and strongest of them all was Agent Maine.

  • Wiz: Maine was the muscle of the team, relying on his brute strength, wrestling styles and unwavering ferocity to intimidate and crush his foes.

  • Boomstick: While he likes carrying a M-16 magnum pistol into battle.

  • He really like a certain alien grenade launcher he stole, the Type-25 Grenade Launcher, A.K.A the Brute Shot.

  • So, the guy was a badass fighter.

  • Too bad Project Freelancer ended up turning him into a monster.

  • Wiz: Long story short, the director of Project Freelancer received a rare artificial intelligence for testing.

  • Boomstick: The director imagined an army of super soldiers paired with A.Is but he can only get the one.

  • Wiz: Being the resourceful scientist he was, the director decided to torture the A.I, forcing it to separate it's raw emotion into multiple personalities to save itself.

  • These personalities were captured as individual A.I fragments and paired with different freelancers.

  • Trust me, that's science.

  • Boomstick: Maine was given Sigma, the A.I fragment representing ambition and creativity.

  • And apparently, being creative means you're f***ing evil.

  • Wiz: Desperate to gather his fellow A.I fragments and reform it to form a perfect A.I.

  • Sigma manipulated and brainwashed Maine, turing him into the murdering psychopath known as the Meta.

  • Boomstick: The Meta went on a rampage, betraying his fellow freelancers and stealing their A.Is.

  • It was like the Predator, but tougher, meaner and with tons of overpowered equipment.

  • Wiz: His Domed Energy Shield creates a nigh impregnable force field.

  • Boomstick: It can block bullets, explosions and even shells from tanks.

  • Wiz: But there's a lot more to the Meta...

  • Boomstick: Which will cover in the very special full episode airing July 30th.

  • Wiz: That's right this matchup is not only a DEATH BATTLE, but also an episode of Rooster Teeth's Red vs. Blue.

  • Boomstick: So make sure you check it out and of course tune in next week for a quick rundown on the Meta's opponent.

  • Agent Carolina.

Wiz: Before there was Red vs. Blue, there was Project Freelancer.
