By September 19, 2552, the members of the second squad were aboard the Pillar of Autumn when it arrived in the Soell system. Following the rescue of Captain Jacob Keyes, the squad was selected to investigate a supposed weapons cache, in fact a containment facility for the Flood parasite. The second squad would arrive in the swamps with the Captain and eventually meet up with Fire Team Charlie, who had already secured the site. The squad was assigned to guard the facility entrance to allow for Charlie to have a viable escape route. While Charlie were exploring the complex, second squad would be set upon by the Flood and make a panicked transmission to Charlie, before the latter group were promptly set upon themselves.[1][2]

Members of second squad were likely killed by the Flood, and if not, killed when John-117 detonated the Pillar of Autumn's fusion reactors.
