Battle Force 2000 first appeared in 1988 as a testing and research unit assigned in the country of Frusenland. The team would continue to operate together and separately.

Maverick got some time away from the team soon after. He was teamed with Wild-Bill and Crazylegs during a mission in Rio Vista, the capital of war-torn Sierra Gordo. Several Dreadnoks appeared. Monkeywrench, Zarana and Thrasher took civilians hostage in order to ensure the help of Maverick and the other Joes in escaping. In the end, though, the two groups teamed up, rescuing each other and helping the civilians reach safety.

Maverick also appeared in one of G.I. Joe's Special Missions. After playing ping pong with Wild Bill, they and the other Joe pilots scramble for a recon mission over Cobra Island. The pilots engaged several Cobra aircraft in a dogfight and won handily.

Later, Battleforce 2000 is a major part of the invading force assisting Serpentor during the Cobra Civil War.

In 1991, Most members of Battleforce 2000 were killed during a major battle in the war of liberating Benzheen, which was occupied by Cobra. The country's emir was concerned about his oil stocks, so he negotiated with Cobra Commander not to shell artillery on Battleforce 2000, who were reinforcing Joes trapped in another battle. Cobra Commander immediately reneged on the agreement and ordered shelling on Battleforce 2000.

Dee-Jay died first; Dodger is the only surviving member. After the war, Dodger was assigned to another Joe team, the Sonic Fighters.

The rest of the team was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, along with other Joe members who died in Benzheen and all other Joes who have perished over the years.
