He is a playable character during the quest, armed with a , , and a Corpus Data Pad that can summon and issue orders to nearby robotic units. His first "ability" can command Breacher MOAs to enter areas that he cannot and hack terminals, and can be shot to explode. His second "ability" commands a Shield Drone to follow, replenishing his and his ally MOA's shields. His third "ability" commands a Striker MOA that provides covering fire. He has 300 Health Points and 150 Shield Points.
Veso is a Corpus Tech during the Sentient invasion of the Origin System. Serving under Alad V, Veso contacts him after Alad V asks for any remaining Techs aboard to narrow-band him at once. Alad V tasks him with breaking fire control from the fleet as his command overrides aren't working, getting Veso's name wrong and calling him "Veko" in the process. After correcting Alad's mistake, Veso heads to a trace conduit. Using his Data Pad, he breaks through the ship's wreckage using an explosive Breacher MOA. He then encounters rogue MOAs that are under Sentient control and informs Alad that their grid has been breached. Alad says that he'll send some "meat-crews" to aid Veso, adding that he still needs the override while forgetting Veso's name again.
Fighting past more rogue robotics, he successfully hacks one of the override conduits using another Breacher MOA. While heading to the next conduit, he encounters more of the ship that has been taken over by Sentient control. After breaking through more wreckage with the help of a Shield Drone and a Striker MOA, he is contacted again by Alad. Getting Veso's name wrong yet again, Alad is dismayed that "Teko" has not yet disengaged the fire control. Veso begins to question his orders and gets confused over Alad's repeated desire to disengage the fire control. Alad responds by saying that they're about to be under "new managment" (in reference to the Sentient invasion), and threatens to replace Veso with a "more forward-thinking replacement" if he doesn't comply.
Veso continues through the ship, encountering Crewmen engaging the rogue Corpus robotics. After fighting past some of the robotics with them, his path is then blocked by a rogue Jackal, with Alad V questioning "Teso" his plan to fight it. After its destruction and Alad V congratulating "Viko", Veso engages the final override, allowing the nearest Sentient Murex to dock. During Alad V's following speech claiming to have negotiated an alliance with the Sentients, Veso realizes that Alad V intends to betray the Corpus Board of Directors and angrily reactivates the entire fleet's weapons, ordering the Corpus to "Take [their] shot. For Profit." The ship fires into the heart of the Murex, destroying it as the resulting shockwave causes the Corpus Ship to break apart, killing Veso.
- Veso was first revealed in the Gameplay Trailer for The New War at TennoCon 2021, where the final confrontation was against a Bursa blockade. The Bursa encounter is absent in-game.
- Veso has markings on his helmet similar to Corpus Tech Eximus units and The Sergeant.
