The main cast of the original film reprise their roles in the sequel, with the addition of Maxwell Caulfield as a new antagonist.
The film begins shortly after the events of the first film. The setting is the alien-western world of Oblivion.
A suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Sweeney is the deadliest bounty hunter in the universe, and despite appearing as an English dandy, is something far more sinister.
Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar.
Sherriff Zack had killed Redeye in a duel in the previous film. Jaggar wants the mine for himself and use its ore to rule the galaxy.
Miss Kitty, owner of the local bar/cathouse reveals to Zack that she is a wanted woman.
A fight develops over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion (Zack), Jaggar and Sweeney. In the resulting battle, Miss Kitty is apparently killed. With Jaggar defeated, Sweeney departs.
Miss Kitty, alive, makes an appearance at her own funeral.
