Slauson fought along with the rest of his squad until Keegan and Garrett regrouped with them. Slauson, as well as the rest of the squad then rescued Sergeant Magnusson from the church after he was captured by nazis. Slauson and the rest of the squad then defended the church from a German counter-attack until it seemed as if all of them were wiped out. When Keegan went downstairs to open the door to exit the church, a lone Fallschirmjager incapacitated him with a buttstroke from a Karabiner 98K. After Keegan recovered, Slauson remarked: 'Geez, Keegan, you've got a hard head, you took a good hit.' before they moved through the cemetery, clearing out any German soldiers within. After Slauson and the squad reached the first bridge and destroyed it, Keegan and Garrett split from Sergeant Magnusson's squad to search for a Bazooka, Slauson stayed with Sergeant Magnusson's squad to search for more bridges to destroy. Slauson also fought throughout the mission Requiem, after Keegan was incapacitated by an explosive charge detonating early.

Slauson was part of Keegan's unit during Operation Market Garden. In A Shallow Grave he, alongside the squad, fought their way towards the fortified house, when the house was cleared Slauson then said: 'Hey, where's the big guy?' Garrett replied: 'Chalmers!', Chalmers then told them: 'Shut up, I'm coming!' and then kicked down a door. Slauson and the rest of Keegan's squad then cleared out the farmhouse and windmill, Slauson noticed that the windmill was non-functional and said: 'This never was a windmill, it's just a big decoy!'. After clearing both the windmill and farmhouse, the squad secured some maps. Garrett then heard German soldiers outside and translated what they were saying, the squad then ambushed them. Slauson was also present in Haunted where he, along with the squad defended a house from German infantry, cleared out a bunker and fought their way across a bridge and destroyed two Anti-Air Guns. After moving to Grave, Slauson and the squad came under fire from a German ambush, after dealing with the ambush they then moved through the town, clearing out any resistance they encountered. Shortly after the ambush they came a across a Tiger Tank, with no anti-tank weapons around, however the Bazooka Operator, who was nearby destroyed the tank. The squad then continued to move through grave until they came across a second tiger tank, which was destroyed by Keegan, but not before it killed Chalmers.

After Keegan destroyed the Flak 88, they were pinned down in a farmhouse by MG42s, forcing them to defend it from German infantry trying to retake it. Aftewards they moved through the trenches, clearing out German resistance along the way and destroying more Flak 88s. At the end of the mission Slauson and the rest of his squad split up from Keegan, who was then joined by a different squad, when this happened a member of the squad said: 'We'll take it from here' to which Slauson sarcastically replied: 'You mean steal our thunder?'. Slauson was present in the squad led by Garrett that appears halfway through The Crucible, where they mow down a cornered squad of German soldiers with ease, they then regroup with Keegan. The squad advances upstairs however Garrett notices how there are probably snipers in the next area, one soldier does not believe Garrett and then gets killed by a sniper. Slauson, and the rest of the squad stay behind as Keegan clears the area of snipers. After the snipers are cleared Slauson and the squad regroup with Keegan where they defend the factory against a final assault from German infantry and tanks.
