War of the Worlds: Part 2 is the twenty-sixth episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.
Getting into the Highbreed headquarters, the gang fight the Highbreed and an army of DNAliens. When Kevin is threatened by a Highbreed commander, an enraged Gwen transforms into her Anodite form for the first time. She almost loses her humanity and wants to destroy the entire Highbreed fleet by herself, but upon hearing Kevin's confession that he cannot bear to lose her, she returns to normal and they embrace each other afterwards. Upon discovering that the fleet can only be recalled by the Highbreed Supreme, Ben, Gwen, Kevin head to their home world to confront him. But the Highbreed Supreme refuses to recall the fleet and Azmuth reveals that the Highbreed's obsession with genetic purity has resulted in sterility in their species: they intend to cleanse the entire galaxy of all sentient and intelligent life in retaliation.
Using the Omnitrix, Ben sends out a powerful circular white-colored energy wave that reprograms the DNA of every Highbreed in the galaxy, fusing their DNA with random species from the Omnitrix to repair their genetic damage. The council is stunned and horrified at the loss of their genetic purity and immediately consider mass suicide as their only honorable option. Reinrassic III returns to convince the Highbreed Supreme that their new impurity is not undesirable and now they can live, thus recalling the fleet and being elected as the Highbreed Supreme. Grandpa Max decides to become the mentor of the Plumber's kids that Ben recruited. Ben and Julie almost kiss, but decide against it. Ben makes it up by walking her to school tomorrow. Professor Paradox takes Azmuth home and Kevin takes Gwen to an auto show. As a side effect of modifying the entire Highbreed race's DNA, the Omnitrix reboots, re-locking the Master Control. Also, Ben finds out that it has also unlocked new aliens and transforms into one in the last moment of the episode.

- The title is the same as the 1898 novel by H. G. Wells.
- When Ben calls the Highbreed supreme "the big banana around here" it was a hint towards Dwayne McDuffie's inspiration for Highbreed, bananas.
- The Omnitrix mentions 'recombinant DNA' when repairing the DNA of the Highbreed. Recombinant DNA is formed by taking a chunk of genes out of a DNA strand and putting new genes in its place, forming new characteristics, like the Highbreed's new looks.
- Even though Ben owns a cell phone, he does not use it to call Julie, instead borrowing Gwen's phone to do so.
