A Walk in the Dust (WD) is the eleventh major event and the second Intermezzo in Arknights.

A Walk in the Dust tells a three-part tale of Kal'tsit's past prior to her joining of Babel and the events of Main Theme. It is an age-long story of her ventures in Sargon together with young Elliot, an insidious plot in Ursus with the aid of Folinic's mother, and an ultimate battle in a remote manor in Victoria.
