Red vs. Blue: Season 9 is a machinima web series created by Rooster Teeth Productions. It was first announced with a trailer, originally debuting at PAX East 2011, and online March 28th, 2011 thereafter. It is the first season to follow two apparently separate storylines. The first details events taking place inside the Epsilon unit, in which Epsilon relives his memories of Blood Gulch, depicted in the Halo: Reach engine. The second storyline is a prequel, detailing events of Project Freelancer and its agents, depicted using pre-rendered CGI, allowing for action sequences and settings outside of the maps provided. Unlike Revelation, machinima and CGI are not blended; each medium is entirely separate and represent different eras of the storyline. It is currently the ninth full season of Red vs. Blue.

One of the soldiers, Murphy, is killed, causing the other to look for him and panic. When the soldier finds Murphy, he is killed by Agent South. North and South start talking, which turns to arguing about turning South's motion sensors on. South then sneaks into the main part of the base and gets past a dozen guards.
