Half-Life 2: Episode Two

MIRT is first encountered when he greets Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance after they arrive at the base entrance. After greeting them, he asks if he can keep Dog on patrol outside.

Before the Combine launches their main assault on the White Forest rocket silo with a large force of Striders and Hunters, MIRT makes several adjustments to the Muscle Car - adding a rack at the back of the car for holding Magnusson Devices, which Gordon uses to destroy the Striders. He also modifies the car to be picked up on Gordon's HEV Suit homing signal in case he is separated from the car. Finally, MIRT modifies the car's radar system to be able to detect Combine forces and Magnusson Device teleporters which send an unlimited amount of devices to the field. Before going out into the field, MIRT explains to Gordon how the modifications he has made work.

During the battle, MIRT remains within the base to watch the field and send Freeman status updates on the Combine advance through megaphones spread around the area. After the battle is won, MIRT is among the celebrating Rebels, and cheers Gordon as he enters.
