A year before the start of the film, Barry was hired as a COO of the Belko facility in Colombia.

When Barry is finally in the process of being allowed into the building, he notices that the security guards were new and that the local workers were being turned away. When Barry is finally allowed into the building, he went on with his work as usual.
Phase 1 Edit
While in the middle of his work, Barry and the other employees were interrupted from their activities by a mysterious voice over the intercom. The Voice then says that the employees have half an hour to kill 2 people or else 4 people will be killed at random. At first Barry and most of the other employees believed it to be a prank, so they ignored it. Barry then along with the employees gather up in the lobby. While in the lobby, fellow employee, Mike Melch questions if what‘s happening actually is a prank which Barry then reassures him that it’s just a prank. However, minutes later, 4 employees heads are suddenly blown up which shocks everyone of the employees. Barry then, closely examines the dead employees heads only to realize that their heads were blown open from the inside. Shortly afterwards, Barry ask security guard, Evan for the keys to armory which Evan refuses to do so and quits his job in protest.
Phase 2 Edit
The Voice then returns and says that in 2 hours, the remaining employees have to kill 30 more people or else 60 people will by killed. The employees then split into different ideas of what to do. Barry and several other employees including Wendell believes that they should kill 30 people for the good of 30 more people. Barry’s group then goes to armory to open it using a blowtorch. However their plan fails due to Mike using Evan’s gun to make the blowtorch useless. Desperate for the keys, Barry’s group ambushes Mike, Leandra and Evan in the staircase. Wendell, then threatens Evan with a knife for the keys. Evan grudgingly hand over the key to Wendell which he reacts by stabbing and killing Evan with a knife. Shortly afterwards, Barry’s group gathers all the employees into one room and lines several of them up to be executed. However after managing to execute most of the employees lined up, the power to building is switched off which allows most of employees to escape save for about 13 employees who Barry’s group shoots as they attempts to flee. Barry’s group then splits up to find 3 more employees to kill, but fails. While in one of the bathroom, the Voice returns and says that the 2 hours is up and 31 more people would be killed. Accepting his fate, Barry closes his eyes only realize that his bomb didn’t explode.

Barry then presses the top floor button to crush Roberto which he succeeds in doing. This however temporary gets the evaluator stuck. When Barry finally gets out of the evaluator, he finds Barry and Leandra which he responds by shooting them as they tries to escape. Barry then tries to chase them down but fails. Barry soon encountered Vince and Dany who he easily kills. Minutes later, it is revealed that he actually was able to hit Leandra with one of his rounds and mortally wounded her.
