Donations
===============================================================================

After a few generous emails and suggestions from readers and because donations
seems to be a growing trend among other contemporary guide writers, I have
decided to put in the option to allow you to donate some money to me for 
helping you out if you wish to do so.

Although I make these guides for free in my spare time, I probably don’t 
need to point out to gamers that purchasing games is an expensive hobby and 
writing guides for them can be a long, difficult and thankless task at times,
but one that I find challanging and enjoyable (when I have enough free time to
get the chance to do one!). 

By no means feel obligated to donate just for viewing my guide, but if you are
feeling a little generous I certainly won’t object! Any amount is appreciated
whether it be 10 cents or $10 & All funds go to purchasing new games to create
new guides, and honestly, who wouldn't want those? 

Heres the stuff you need!

***   HINTS & TIPS    *** [HNTTP]
 ***********************
   *******************
 
- In close quarters combat, you should always attempt to melee, it is instant 
  and usually fatal. Trying to shoot up close is usually inaccurate and much
  less effective

- Always take cover when the screen begins to turn red and let your stamina 
  regenerate. This is especially important on Heroic and Legendary difficulties

- Subtlety is sometimes the key to getting through certian areas, if you can 
  sneak past a fight you should do so, as it will greatly reduce the amount of 
  frustration you will encounter on the higher difficulty settings.

- Practice with different combinations of weapons, each has its own strengths 
  and weaknesses for you to experiment with.

- Explore each area to the fullest, you never know when you will stumble upon 
  some of those power weapons (spartan lasers, railguns etc...) hidden in the
  most unlikely places.

- Use the plasma pistol! The primary fire is next to useless, but hitting an 
  enemy with the secondary overcharge function is a sure fire way to take down 
  a elite's armor or destroy a jackals shield, leaving them open for a nice.
  clean headshot.

- Use the plasma pistol overcharge feature on an occupied vehicle and watch it 
  short circuit for a few seconds. Whilst the vehicle is unable to move, take 
  out an alternate weapon and pop the driver before functionality is restored.

- Hijack vehicles when you can, sometimes keeping a little bit of technology 
  between your enemies and the seat of your pants can make all the difference 
  on the difficulty of a particular fight.

   *******************

This walkthrough will provide players with the fastest route for each level 
from beginning to the end. Although I have done my best to emit them, there 
may still be a few spoilers floating around below. If so I apologise in 
advance!


===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================
Dawn  [ACT01]
===============================================================================

------------
Part 1: Dawn
------------
As we begin the game, look up when prompted and hit the action button to exit
the stasis chamber. After a short scene, we’ll have full control of the chief.

Move forward and instead of following the hallway towards the yellow hologram
at the end, climb down the stairs and find the computer terminal down here.
Interact with it for an achievement.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For interacting with the terminal will earn you the mission specific
         achievement ‘Digging up the Past’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Continue to the room with the yellow hologram and continue through the various
rooms until you reach a map room. A red wave of light will wash over the area
and the door at the far end from where we entered will open. Continue through
the hallways until you get an objective marker on an elevator.  Hit the action
button and mash the button to open it.

After a short scene, you will be inside hanging off the wall. Push forward to
climb up the elevator shaft. When you can climb no further, hit left to jump
over. Continue climbing upwards and again jump to the right when you can climb
no further.  Jump to the right again, climb and then jump back to the left,
climb up once more to climb out of the elevator.  At the top, press the melee
button during the scene.

Following on from this, continue through the open doorway and sneak up on the
elite at the top of the stairs and assassinate him (melee in the back for an
instant kill). Drop down to the ground floor of the room and kill all of the
grunts running around in here. Once the room is clear of hostiles, return to
where we killed the elite and hit the switch on the terminal to open the
shutters.

After a few moments a pair of covenant drop ships (phantoms) will appear and
attach tubes to either side of the room.  Each of these phantoms will send in
a small group of grunts and elite. Clear the room and return back to the
previous room and enter the now open door to the left.

Exit the lift and enter the door on the left at the end of the hall. Kill the
pair of grunts and elite in here.  Turn right and wait for the door to open,
in this room are four grunts and an elite, eliminate them and continue along
the hall. Drop down the stairs and enter the hallway, again you’ll find an
elite accompanied by a group of grunts…you know what to do.

Continue out the back of this room and into the next. Turn a corner to the
left to find yet another group of grunts with an elite. Once all of them are
dead, the two doors at the back of the room will open, revealing a pair of
shield toting jackals. Kill them and continue through the now open door.

Turn left and exit into a large room with a smaller, glass walled room in the
centre. There are around 10 grunts a handful of jackals and a pair of elites
in here to deal with. Once the room is devoid of hostiles, exit through the
open door on the opposite side of the room from the entrance. Turn left and in
the hallway here wait for the door to open.

You will exit to an outdoor area. Drop down to the area below and turn left. A
phantom will be dropping off covenant troops in front.  Keep an eye out for
the jackal sniper on the ledge at the back of the room – take him down first
and then fight your way through the jackals, elites and grunts until you reach
the wall. Climb the stairs to the right and climb to a control centre. Clear
it of the elite and jackals and hit the switch in here.

This will activate a piece of machinery in front and on the opposite side of
the area. Quickly run over to this, after a moment, Cortana will let you know
that it needs manual intervention. So interact with the objective marker for a
short story scene.

Once the scene has played out, look back towards where we first entered the
area and to the right you will the new objective marker continue over here to
see a ramp leading up. Climb this and enter the door at the top to find
yourself in a semi-circular room.  Wait for the door at the far end to open.

Continue through the hall here and run across the next room to the stairs
slightly to the left. At the end of this area, turn to the right and enter the
door. Wait a moment and the roof will cave in. use the broken catwalk to the
left to walk over to the far side of the room and hop through the door.
Continue along the hallway until you reach a larger room. Again the roof will
cave in. When it does fall down, drop down to the ground floor and enter the
door on the far side of the room.

Sprint and jump across the gap and upon reaching the hallway turn right.
Follow it all the way to the end to find a door we can approach to complete
the mission.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For completing this mission, you will earn the achievement 
         ‘Dawn’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------




===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================
Requiem   [ACT02]
===============================================================================

---------------
Part 1: Requiem
---------------
From the start, continue forward to the far end of the crash site and locate a
passage nearby and continue down the dirt slope slightly to the right. Follow
the tunnel here all the way around until you reach the next outdoor area
overlooking a cliff. Continue along to the left until you reach the next piece
of wreckage. Here you can find a warthog.  Drive it along the set path for a
couple of minutes until you reach the covenant defences in an open area.

There are a couple of covenant sniper towers in the area, as well as several
small groups of grunts and jackals with the occasional elite scattered about.
You can completely ignore them if you like and motor over to the back of the
area. At the far end of the area, you’ll see a sniper tower with a few
barricades below it preventing further progress with the warthog.  Hop out
and continue between the barricades, kill the elite and jump up to the higher
platform. Follow the passage here until you reach the open area to the end,
killing any grunts along the way.

You should be able to see a structure in the distance. Continue towards it.As
you move forward an elite will charge out to attack. Kill him and note that
there is a sniper jackal on a raised platform at the back of the area which
you should take out as soon as possible. After killing him, focus on killing
the extra grunts and jackals and an elite or two to kill in the immediate
area.

Work your way up the ramp to the right to reach the structure. Kill the
enemies on the platform here and then climb the next ramp to find your way
into the structure. Kill the covenant forces in here – there are 3-4 jackals a
group of grunts and an elite with an energy sword. Don’t let him get too close
or he’ll one shot you.  Once the room is clear, loot the cloaking device from
the elite’s body and then head for the back of the room.  Enter the doors into
the main structure.

Work your way to the back of the room and activate the switch on the pedestal
here.

After the scene, go down the ramp in front and you will see two objective
markers appear. Let’s work our way over to the right side of the area and use
the ramps here. Enter the door and hit the button here to activate a light
bridge. Cross this and press the button here to lower the platform. Once you
are down, return to the main room through the door here.

You will find that in our absence, the room has been filled with covenant
forces. Eliminate the grunts and jackals here and the elite if he gets in your
way.  Work your way over to the objective marker up the ramp on the opposite
side of the room and repeat the process of activating the light bridge,
crossing it and riding the lift down.

Exit back into the main room again. Work your way back to the pedestal we
activated earlier, killing the entirety of the enemy forces remaining in the
room.  Once the room is clear, interact with the pedestal again for a scene.


--------------------------
Part 2: A Star to Steer By
--------------------------
Exit through the door in front and ride the lift down to the bridge below.

Work your way across the bridge to the other side, fighting your way through
the various grunts jackals and elites as you go. Phantoms will fly in at a
couple of locations along the bridge to drop off some additional baddies for
you to kill. As you move across, try to stay in cover to avoid banshee fire,
and when you reach the broken section of bridge, kill the jackal sniper
opposite and pick off the elite as well as any grunts and jackals on the
platform below before hopping down to mop up any more hostiles there.

Climb the ramps here to get back on top of the bridge on the opposite side of
the gap. Continue towards the end of the bridge and as you go, kill the elite
and the groups of grunts and jackals the phantom drops off and any other
covenant forces that get in your way as you make your way to the door at the
end of the area.  In front of this, kill the elite before you enter.  Follow
the passage to the end and exit into the courtyard beyond.


-------------------
Part 3: The Gateway
-------------------
As you enter, a phantom will have just dropped off some jackals in front of
you.  Kill them and fight off the ghosts and other infantry units in the area
and continue towards the structure in the distance.  Enter the building here
and climb the ramps inside. At the top, kill the grunts straight ahead and
proceed into the room, as you do an elite with a sword will charge at you, so
take him down when you can.

Exit into the balcony overlooking the courtyard we just climbed up from.  Head
to the right and kill the grunts and jackals over here.  As you follow the
platform around the corner, kill the elite and the next group of jackals
before climbing the ramp. Kill the sniper up the top and then continue out the
door to the right.

You will exit back out onto the higher balcony and kill the pair of elites
here. Continue up the ramps to the left and defeat the two hunters at the top
of the structure. If you’ve played a Halo game before, you’ll know to shoot
them in the back until they die whilst avoiding their fuel rod gun fire and
melee attacks. Once they are dead, the door will open so head on inside.

Enter the long hallway. Here, you will see a ramp at the far end.  Before
climbing this we can get a terminal.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: See the ramp at the back of the area? Head around
          behind this and look below it to find the terminal.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For finding the first terminal you will earn the achievement ‘Contact
         the Domain’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Climb the ramp and step on the elevator here to end the mission.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For completing this mission, you will earn the achievement ‘Requiem’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------




===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================
Forerunner   [ACT03]
===============================================================================

----------------------------
Part 1: Buried and Forgotten
----------------------------
As you begin the level, you should have the hardlight shield, if you wish to
swap this out for an auto turret, you can find several of these sitting on
pedestals lining the walls of the room. When you are ready, go through the
door.

Make your way along the bridge here until you reach the circular platform
ahead. As you approach a terminal will rise up. Stick Cortana into this for a
short scene.  Afterwards, hop off the platform and enter the portal that has
appeared.

Follow the tunnel until you find yourself in an outside area. Ignore the
retreating critters and continue around the path to the right.  As you enter
the next larger area you will be attacked. There are 6-7 crawlers here to
kill. Simply pop them each once in their glowy spots to take them down! Proceed
to the terminal opposite the entrance and activate the button here. A light
bridge will appear behind it.

Cross the bridge and continue along the path. A short scene will play, hit the
melee button when prompted to do so.  Continue through the tunnel and follow
the path outside until you see a rocky structure in front. Two pillars will
raise either side of it and a knight will be standing on top of it waiting for
you.  Eliminate the crawlers that enter the area from the left hand side of
the area before focusing your efforts on the knight, you will also find a
watcher in the area too (flying enemies with the circular thrusters) – take
the watcher down first as they can shield other units. Kill any remaining
crawlers that may have joined the fray and then look behind the rocky
structure to find a door we can enter.

Once inside, follow the tunnel to the end and exit into another large area. 
Kill the knight outside the door and then follow the passage between the rocks
to the right to find another, murder his face off too.  Follow the path back
to the left and deal with the crawlers in the area, continue towards the
glowing circular platform on the ground in front. As you approach, more
crawlers will attack from the cliff to the right so deal with them before
continuing.

Drop down to the platform below and you’ll find a watcher a knight and a few
more crawlers here. Again deal with the crawlers and the watcher first before
taking out the knight.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: After the previous fight, instead of heading up
          the ramp to the left/right, look below the structure opposite where
          we dropped down to find this level’s terminal. Interact with it to
          watch a short cut-scene.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Climb the ramp to the left or right and enter the door at the top. Follow the
hallway all the way to the end, note that there is a small side passage to the
left containing some ammo if you are interested. When ready enter the door to
the next area.

This room is quite large. From the elevated platform we are on, take note of
the large structure in the centre of the room. On the far side of this is a
ramp leading up. Before we do that though, we will need to destroy three
shield generators at ground level.  The problem with this is there is an
abundance of crawlers and knights (not to mention a watcher or two) occupying
the area!

Each of the generators is located in a small, square structure with a ramp on
one side and two open doorways allowing you to see all the way through the
room. There are two of these located on the right side of the central structure
and one on the left side.  Take your time and try to eliminate the hostiles
around each of the generators before approaching so they don’t distract you
whilst you destroy them.

After the three generators are down, head to the ramp at the back of the
central structure. A pair of watchers and a pair of knights will be waiting
for you. Eliminate them and then climb the ramp. On this level, kill one more
knight and then work your way around the platform, cruise up the next ramp and
find the bridge leading to the next area. Continue across this and activate
the button at the end of the hall. Ride the elevator to the top and enter the
next room.

Run up to the spinning core and activate the panel to stop it. Proceed into
the portal on the far side of the room.


-------------------------
Part 2: Enemy of my Enemy
-------------------------
You will find yourself back in the first room that we warped from earlier. This
time, the portal on the right will be activated so head over here and enter
it. Follow the tunnel all the way to the end and drop down the hole and push
forward until you reach another outside area.

As you enter, you will see covenant drop pods landing in the area in front –
the best thing about this? The covenant and promethean forces will attack each
other.  There is an assortment of jackals, grunts and elites on the covenant
side and the usual crawlers, knights and watchers on the promethean side. If
you wish you can blast through the lot, but on the higher difficulty levels 
i'd recommend letting the two factions weaken each other a little before
intervening to polish off any survivors.

Either way, once you leave the starting cave, you’ll need to make your way
across the room to the right and when the coast is all clear, climb the ramp
against the wall leading up to the left.  Kill the knight around the corner,
the promethean laser emplacement on the wall in the distance and the group of
watchers before continuing to the end and entering the passage to the right.

Here you will see two elites on ghosts get taken out by a knight. Kill him and
then proceed down the path. Grab one of the ghosts to make the next section a
little easier!  Our goal is to reach a tunnel in the far left hand corner of
the area, so either let the enemies thin themselves out, or take them out
yourself as you make your way to the aforementioned tunnel. Inside, climb the
ramp and follow the set passage until you exit out into another small area in
front of a large structure.

Kill the enemies and then enter the doorway. Follow the tunnel all the way to
the end and exit into a familiar looking room.  This room is almost identical
to the earlier room where we had to destroy the three shield generators. We’ll
need to do the same thing here, but this time its a little harder as there 
will be covenant forces with banshees and ghosts in addition to the standard
infantry units. Note that in this room, there are two power core rooms on the
left of the central structure and one on the right hand side.

Once you have destroyed all three power cores, continue up the ramp at the
back of the central structure and across the bridge as we did previously,
killing the 2-3 elites on the platforms here as you go.  Once inside the main
building, hit the switch to activate the lift.

At the top, run over and activate the panel in front of the spinning core to
stop it. Continue through the portal at the back of the room. We’ll be back in
the first portal room for the third time! Enter the next portal here.


-------------------
Part 3: Almost Home
-------------------
As you proceed down the ramp towards the circular structure a covenant ship
will arrive in front and drop off a group of grunts and a sniper jackal.  When
they are dead, hit the button on the wall to the left and enter the door that
opens.

At the top of the passage you’ll enter into a room with a fight going on
between the covenant and the Prometheans. There are 2-3 elites, a few grunts
and jackals, three knights and a watcher or two to watch out for. There is
also a promethean laser emplacement, so try and focus on that whilst the two
other forces whittle themselves down.  Once the fighting dies down, mop up any
survivors and continue through the next door.

Step on the light covered floor at the back of the room to rise up to the next
level exit the door into the next room. The first part of the room has a
similar layout and enemy make up to the previous one, so either take down both
sides or wait until the numbers are thinned out a little to press through.
Continue to the far side of the room and climb the ramp on the left all the
way to the top.

Kill the elites and knights here (I counted three of each) and the laser
emplacement too before proceeding up the ramp and running over to activate the
terminal here.


--------------------------------
Part 4: Next Stop, Certain Death
--------------------------------
When you regain control of the chief, run forward and hop onto one of the
ghosts. Remember the end of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 3? We’ll this is
similar, we are going to have to pilot the ghost through a disintegrating
environment. There’s no real challenge here, just avoid the obstacles that
appear and make your way to the end of the linear area and jump into the
portal at the end to complete the mission.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For completing this mission, you will earn the achievement 
         ‘Forerunner’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------




===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================
Infinity  [ACT04]
===============================================================================

----------------
Part 1: Infinity
----------------
From the start, turn around and proceed down the slope to the right.  Continue
to follow the set pathway through the jungle until you reach the room with the
objective marker in it. Along with the dead marine, you will also find a pair
of knights. They will teleport away when you drop down into the area. Interact
with the objective marker on the ground and then loot the bodies nearby for
some UNSC weaponry if you are interested in such things.  There is also a box
of grenades behind a tree at the far side of the area from where we entered.

Climb down the slope when you are ready to go. As you get around halfway down
a good size group of crawlers (5-6) will appear in the clearing below on the
ground and on the various trees, walls and stumps around the area. Once they
are gone, work your way into the clearing and when you reach the other side
another 8-10 crawlers will emerge from the trees in front along with a knight
who will remain in the distance.  Kill the lot and then, continue with the path
around to the left.

Clear any remaining crawlers out of the area as you proceed. As the path
becomes narrower, you’ll see into the next open area. Kill the watcher and any
crawlers you can see before entering to finish off the rest. Continue around
the large tree in the centre of the zone and down the path opposite the entry.
Check out the objective marker on the ground to pick up the promethean vision
ability. When we activate this, we’ll now be able to see enemies highlighted
in red and be able to see through the fog that lies just ahead.

Move forward to the edge of the cliff and use promethean vision to identify
the knight and 7-8 crawlers below. Kill them all before dropping down to their
level and heading to the right. Once you can go no further, look for a slope
leading upwards to your right and kill the knight and the small group of
crawlers that come down it. Climb the ramp and then ascend the tree roots to
the left. Enter the clearing nearby and examine the objective marker.

Proceed a little further, and as you reach the top of the slope leading down
to the next area, 6-7 crawlers will run by. Kill them all as you enter the
area. Once they are dead, continue around the corner to the right and kill the
knight, watcher and another group of crawlers here. Remember to use the
promethean vision to tack down all of those pesky crawlers who might be hiding.
 
Proceed into the area with the objective marker, kill any crawlers lurking
about and then jump up to the structure approach the door for a short story
scene.


----------------
Part 2: Reunited
----------------
We’ll now have a posse of marines to follow us around and provide a little
support (actually they are fairly useless). However you should note that the
mission-specific achievement for this level is to not allow any of these
marines to die. So be sure to keep an eye on them if you want to earn that
one!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: As soon as you regain control of master chief
          following the story scene, do a 180- degree turn to find the terminal
          at the end of the short hallway behind you.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Exit the building and turn to the right, kill the watcher, the pair of knights
and large group of crawlers in the immediate area. Proceed further into the
jungle when it is clear and follow the path to the left and up the ramp. 
Continue along the winding path here until you encounter a group of three
crawlers and a knight. Deal with them before continuing.

When you reach the group of marines under fire, continue down the slope and
help them repel the crawlers, knights and watchers in the open area beyond
their cover position.  When it gets quite, hop the marine’s defences and clear
out any remaining enemies before proceeding to the structure at the afar end
of the area. As you approach a knight, a pair of watchers and another small
group of crawlers will ambush you. During this encounter, a pair of promethean
laser emplacements may also be activated, so if they do, destroy them as well.
Once everything is dead, head for the structure.

Place Cortana into the socket on the pillar to the right of the door and then
defend the area for a few moments whilst she does her thing. You will have to
fight off a healthy number of crawlers and a few knights, any remaining marines
will help you out and there is also a gun turret here to make things easier if
you wish to use it.  Once time is up, Cortana will let you know she is finished
and the door will open, giving you access to the next area.

We’ll be in a large open cave.  We need to clear it of all enemies to create a
landing zone.  As you exit the tunnel, note that covenant and promethean forces
are now working together! Kill the knight and 5-6 grunts in front. Move into
the main part of the cave and you will see a watcher, a couple of knights and
a good number of jackals and grunts.  Once you have killed a few of the
baddies here, a couple of phantoms will show up and drop off some additional
covenant grunts and jackals, additionally a couple of extra knights seem to
appear at this point too.

Now all we need to do is simply clear the area until a friendly ship shoes up.
Run over to it and wait until a scene plays.


--------------------
Part 3: The Gun Show
--------------------
From the start, run down the hill to the right and jump into the scorpion tank.
After entering the tank, continue forward in the direction the tank is facing
and use the tank shells to deal with any bad guys that get in your way.  We’re
essentially going to follow the linear path through covenant lines until we
reach an open area.  Make sure to destroy any ghosts that approach and destroy
the wraiths (I counted three in this first part) in your path as well, you can
also blow up all the the sniper hover towers along the way if you are into
that kind of thing.

Once you reach the tunnel leading down, cruise to the bottom and park the tank
on the circular platform. Ride it up to the inside of the Infinity.

We are in a cargo bay of sorts and there are a large number of covenant forces
here. There are hunters, grunts and elites. They should not bother you at all
with the tank though, so take them all down. Once everything is dead, you’ll
receive a transmission from the captain. Hop out of the tank and continue
through the open door. Hit the switch at the top of the ramp inside.


---------------------
Part 4: Shining Armor
---------------------
Climb into the mantis. This is a suit of armor equipped with missiles (Left
trigger) and a mini-gun (right trigger).  Use the weapons to destroy the door
at the bottom of the ramp and enter the hole you create.  As with the previous
tank section, the mantis is borderline indestructible on normal difficulty and
still pretty sturdy on higher difficulties as well so it goes without saying
that you’ll need to kill an abundance of enemies, kill anything that gets in
the way. Continue along the long hallway here and turn to the right. At the
end of the hallway, turn left and continue up the ramp. At the top turn left
and continue along the pathway and enter the door at the end.

Kill the enemies inside and ride the lift up. 


----------------------------
Part 5: Eviction Proceedings
----------------------------
Exit the lift and continue through the door at the end of the short hallway.
We are now in an outdoor area. In the centre is a giant gun turret that we
need to activate. To do this we need to destroy three covenant signal jammers.
These are located against the far wall of the room as we enter, unfortunately
there are a lot of enemies hanging out in this room. The lot of them can
easily be taken down with rockets and a few rounds of the minigun. When you
are ready, destroy the three marked jammers.

As you destroy them, a number of phantoms (I counted four) will swoop in to
drop off additional covenant forces for you to blow up.  Note that you can
destroy the turrets on the bottoms of the phantoms so that they cannot shoot
at you.  Eliminate the enemies that they drop off.  This will cause a number
of banshees to come in and attack the area. Whilst this is going down another
pair of phantoms will come in to drop off troops. Kill them all and continue
to shoot down banshees until the objective is complete.

When prompted to do so, hop out of the mantis and activate the marked switch.
After a few moments, a story scene will play to complete the mission.

Reclaimer  [ACT05]
===============================================================================

--------------------
Part 1: size Matters
--------------------
From the start of the level, go through the tunnel in front of you. Upon
exiting from the other side, you’ll see a giant armored vehicle to the right.
We’re going to be escorting this bad boy. Enter the vehicle and climb to the
top to talk to the guy who’s highlighted with an objective marker, there is a
sniper rifle on the wall close to this guy if you are interested. After the
conversation, walk to the next objective marker and pick up a jetpack.

The mammoth will start moving. Wait for it to go around the corner and once
the particle cannon has fired, keep an eye on the left hand side of the road,
there will be some covenant forces dug in here.  You will have to neutralise
all of the enemies in this vicinity to continue.

Once the vehicle stops, you will have to run over to the pelican crash site
(to the right of the mammoth). Pick off the sniper in the tower and any
visible enemies on the ground below before returning to ground level and
leaving the mammoth. Head past the now vacant sniper tower towards the
objective marker, you will see the enemies the phantom just dropped off
attacking the downed pelican.  There are a few elites and a pair of ghosts. 
Once you have dealt with them pick up the target designator.

Use it to shoot down any phantoms in the immediate area and then head back to
the mammoth killing the wraith that is now here and any additional enemies that
get in your way (there may be a couple of extra ghosts if you were slow to
shoot the phantoms).  Once at the mammoth, use the target designator on the
particle cannon to take it out. 

Grab a ghost or a warthog and follow the mammoth. When it stops at the stream,
drive through it to the other side.  As you round the corner, you’ll encounter
a pair of phantoms, feel free to use the target designator on them.  When they
bail, continue up the path and follow it around to the left. Kill the pair of
ghosts here and any other enemies in the covenant fortification on the either
side of the road.

Continue until you reach the next open area.  Ahead you will see a giant blue
wall in the distance, in the foreground you will be able to spot a pair of
blue force field domes (there is actually three of these, but one is out of
sight to the far left), a sniper tower behind them and a turret to the right
of them.  I would suggest attempting to take out the turret first, before
focusing on any enemies in the immediate area, watch out for the wraith on the
same raised area as the sniper tower and a couple of ghosts. Once the area
around each dime is relatively clear, you will need to run inside and destroy
the power source.

After destroying all three power sources, the large blue shield will drop,
allowing the mammoth to continue.  In the next area, follow the cliff to the
left and when you reach the end, you should be able to make out the next
particle cannon floating off to the left in the distance. Hit it with your
target designator to take it down.  The mammoth will now sit stationary just
behind you.

This will cause a few phantoms to spawn around the corner to the right which
will come and drop off a wraith and four ghosts. Destroy these enemy vehicles
and then proceed up the slope just to the right of the mammoth (you will see a
covenant ship with a green beam at the top of the hill). On the way up you
will have to take down a couple of elites and a small group of grunts and
jackals.

 When you reach the top, enter the green beam to fly up to the ship above. Kill
the elite,  his posse of grunts and a couple of jackals before  destroying the
power node at the back of the ship. Cortana will let you know when you’ve done
enough damage and at that point you are going to want to jump off of the ship
and use your jetpack to drop to the ground safely. Return to the mammoth and
eliminate any remaining enemies in the area.

Return to the mammoth and climb inside and it will start rolling again. Wait
until the vehicle reaches a dead end before hopping out and making your way
between the rocks to its left.

As you work your way up the path, you will have to deal with a number of grunts
and jackals at ground level and a knight up on a higher ledge to the right.
Additionally, there are quite a few jackal snipers scattered around the area
which we will need to address first as they can kill us very quickly. The first
sniper is up on some rocks to the left. The next is on top of the rocks to the
right above the knight’s position.  The third sniper is on a rocky ledge at
the far end of the area on the same level we are.

This path switches back twice on its way up the hill here. After the first
switchback follow the path up the ramp, killing any additional jackals or
grunts here. Note the presence of a pair of snipers on the rocks at the top of
the first ramp. When we reach the top switch back again.

From here we can see a three tiered structure in the distance. In front there
is a knight, a jackal sniper and a few grunts. Behind them, on the various
tiers of the structure in the distance are four jackal snipers.  Take them out
before focusing on the nearby enemies and proceeding towards the structure.

Climb the ramp to the right and turn left, take out the jackals hanging out at
the end of the bridge. As you start to make your way across 4-6 suicide grunts
will run down the stairs on either side of the area in front and run at you.
Kill them all before continuing across to the other side. Climb up either set
of stairs here and at the top kill the knight, 4-5 crawlers and any remaining
grunts in the area.

Continue up the various ramps to the very top tier of the structure.  Kill the
three knights here and a jackal sniper on a rocky ledge to the right before
mopping up any remaining grunts and crawlers. Head over to the objective
marker and enter the door.

When you reach the bottom, follow the sentinel through the door to the left. 
It’s a lift! Ride it down.  Follow the path around the corner and enter the
next room, continue through the door straight ahead and in the next room take
a right. Exit into a large indoor area. Follow the passage all the way to the
end to activate the console.

Afterwards, do a 180 degree turn and take the first right across the now
activated light bridge here. Enter the door and follow the hallways until you
drop down into a large open area. Climb down the ramp in the centre of the
room and through the door at the bottom. Approach the blue light source for a
story scene.

After the cut-scene, grab Cortana from the pedestal up the ramp to the left
and then cruise down the ramp. Kill the pair of knights and the crawlers here.
Enter the door at the far end of the room opposite the ramp we descended.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: As soon as you enter the door opposite the ramp,
          immediately look to your right to see the terminal at the end of a
          short hallway.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Continue through the open door to the next room into an elevator. Ride it down.
At the bottom, turn right and enter the portal at the end of the path.


------------------------------------
Part 2: The Gravity of the Situation
------------------------------------
As soon as you regain control of the chief, hop on the nearby scorpion tank
and commandeer it. Destroy the four ghosts in the immediate area and continue
onwards. Take out the covenant forces at the defence on the left and the group
of four nearby wraiths. Continue under the stone arch at the back right of the
area and you will find another giant blue wall.

From here, continue via the path over to the left and you’ll find a pair of
those small blue domes containing the shield generators. Kill any enemies in
the immediate area and when it is clear, enter each of these domes and destroy
the generators before returning to where we saw the blue wall before. It will
be gone now so let’s go on through.

Run to the end of the path here and pick up the target designator, use it to
target the glowing orange structure ahead to complete the mission.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For completing this mission, you will earn the achievement
         ‘Reclaimer’.

---------------------------------
Part 1: Once More Unto the Breach
---------------------------------
As we start the mission, continue straight ahead and down the ramp at the end
of the corridor. Head over to the marked pelican and hop on board.

The lift will lower. When we regain control we’ll be in control of the pelican.
Hit the boost button to fly out of launch bay and out of the ship. Fly towards
the glowing sphere in the distance.  As you approach, a pair of objective
markers will appear.  Let’s fly over to the right hand marker first.  Destroy
the phantoms lurking around outside the objective before bringing the pelican
into land. Hop out and enter the door.

Once inside the building, follow the long hallway to the end and through the
door into the next room.  Kill the pair of watchers immediately inside the
door. Look over the edge to the right to see another pair of watchers. Kill
them too. Look over to the left for yet another two watchers. From the
platform here, try to eliminate as many enemies as you can. Head over to the
objective marker and hit the button here.

Hop down, and face the door we entered. Turn to the right and go down the ramp
here. Continue to the left and kill any remaining enemies on the platform
ahead.  As you approach the platform a knight will teleport in, so kill him as
well. Look to the right to see an exposed power core. Destroy that. Turn around
and kill the knight that has appeared behind you.

Turn left and return back the way we came. Kill the watcher, knight and group
of crawlers that have now appeared.  Return back to the platform in the middle
and continue across to the opposing side of the room.  When you reach the far
platform, turn to the right and follow the bridge here. As with the previous
section, clear the platform at the end of enemies, a knight will spawn as you
approach. Kill him and then turn left and destroy the exposed power node.  A
knight will appear behind you again so kill him and return up the ramp we just
came down immediately before reaching this platform.

Kill the watcher, knight and group of crawlers that have now appeared. Instead
of returning to the centre, continue straight along the walkway and turn left.
Defeat the watchers, knights and crawlers on the platform here. Once it is
clear, cruise to the very back of the room and destroy the power core here. 
Return back to the door we entered from. In the long hallway, as you approach
the exit a knight and a few crawlers will spawn. Kill them and return outside.

Jump back into the pelican and fly over to the other objective marker. Kill
the phantoms outside again before landing and continuing inside.

Inside, head down the ramp to the left and continue into the gondola ahead
(Halo 2 anyone?). We are going to ride the gondola to the objective on the
very far side of the room. However, if you look ahead you will see two
structures en route. Unfortunately the gondola is going to be stopped at both
of these.

When we stop at the first structure, you’ll need to head across the
Lightbridge to the structure, work your way through the various groups of
grunts and jackals until you reach the top platform with the button to
re-activate the gondola. Kill the elites and any other enemies here and then
work your way back down the opposite side of the structure, killing the knights
as you go and return across a new Lightbridge to the gondola.  Kill the knight
and crawlers that have boarded it in your absence and hit the switch up top to
start it moving again. As it does start up, a pair of knights will spawn on
board, so kill them.

At the second stop, as with the first you’ll need to head across the
Lightbridge to the structure, work your way through the various groups of
crawlers, watchers and knights until you reach the top platform with the
button to re-activate the gondola. Kill the enemies up here and hit the button
to re-activate the gondola.  Cruise over to the new Lightbridge killing any
crawlers along the way and then take down the two knights who have snuck onto
the gondola whilst you were out and you will notice that the gondola is now
giving you access to the power source.

Continue over to this, killing the knights as you go. And go and stand in the
yellow beam for a few seconds. Kill the large group of watchers that appear to
attack you, return to the gondola and hit the switch up on the top deck to
have it return to the far side of the room. When it reaches the end, return
back to the door we entered from. In the long hallway, as you approach the
exit a knight and a few crawlers will spawn. Kill them and return outside. 

Hop back in the pelican and after a few moments, Cortana will give you a new
waypoint to head for.  Land on the platform that appears, land and head inside.


-----------------------
Part 2: Change of Plans
-----------------------
Continue through the hallway and into the blue beam at the end to fly up to the
next area.

As you enter, platforms around you will disappear, so head to the right where
we can and sprint and jump across the gap here.  Continue up to the first
platform.  Kill the grunts here and then head over to the Lightbridge to the
left.  Kill all the jackals here and then cruise over the next Lightbridge
towards the objective marker. On the next platform kill the combination of
jackals, elites and grunts here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: At this point, instead of heading straight across
          to the exit, take the left hand bridge instead. Look at the far side
          of the structure here for the terminal.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Continue onwards to the next platform and kill the elite and group of grunts
inhabiting it. Finally make your way over to the platform with the blue gravity
lift on it. As you approach, a pair of hunters will drop down to attack you
and the blue beam will disappear leaving you with the necessity to kill them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note:  At this point, you can try for this mission’s specific achievement
          ‘Explore the Floor’.  If you can lure one of the hunters to fall to
          its death, you will earn the achievement.  This is easy if you have
          a jetpack!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Once the hunters are dead, enter the lift and fly up to the next area.

Head across the first light bridge and kill the elite here.  Now you can
either grab a banshee from here and use it to boost all the way across the
room, dropping down to the door when you are close, or you can slowly fight
your way through the room, killing enemies whilst dealing with banshees as
well.  I tried both and the banshee boost is so much more efficient!

When you reach the door at the far end, climb the ramp behind and use the
terminal in the next room.  Grab Cortana back out of the terminal when
necessary and when the platform lowers, run and jump off of the cliff in front
to complete the mission.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For completing this mission, you will earn the achievement ‘Shutdown’.

Part 1: Any Landing You Can Walk Away From
------------------------------------------
After chief stands up, continue through the opening in front and through the
door on the left of the room. Help the marines here by taking out the jackals
at the end of the hallway before proceeding to the end of the passage and exit
through a door to a hangar bay.

As you enter, a phantom will be dropping off a group of enemy combatants. We
need to clear the immediate area. Kill the jackal sniper up on the raised
platform to the right and then proceed to defeat the other grunts and jackals
in the room.  Enter the structure to the right. Kill the elite inside and pop
out the other side to an open area.

Below you’ll see another elite with a few grunts. Instead of hitting these
guys right away, try to take out the jackal snipers on the scaffolding across
the way before eliminating the other forces on the ground. Continue across
the area and into the door to beneath the next structure. Follow the passage
here and enter the door.

Inside the building here you will see a few guards and you’ll get a new
objective to raise the emergency barricade.  Unfortunately, this is outside
at the end of the right hand landing platform. Climb the stairs in the
building here, and exit onto the balcony. Use the vantage point here to clear
out the enemies below that have just been dropped off by the phantom.  As you
fight them off a second phantom will show up. Eliminate these guys and when 
it is relatively clear, run out to the end of the docking platform and hit
the switch to close the doors.

As you do, it’s fairly likely that another phantom has entered the area, so
deal with its re-enforcements and head for the door to the left at the end of
the docking bay once all of the baddies are dead. Kill the jackals inside the
open door and then take out the group of enemies consisting of grunts, jackals
and an elite or two at the far end of the room.  Try to take the guy on the
turret and the snipers out first! When it’s clear, head over to the now
cleared part of the room and descend the ramp to the right. Kill any remaining
enemies in the area before climbing up the next ramp and entering the door.

You’ll be in a bright room with a set of stairs to the left. Kill the enemies
here and climb the stairs to the very top. Clear the elite and the other
enemies here and enter the door to the left.  Inside you will find a pair of
hunters we need to take down to access the next area.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: There is a specific achievement ‘Give Him the Stick’ tied into killing
         both hunters using only the sticky detonator.  In the back right of
         the room is a small office area. Head in here and pick up the sticky
         detonator.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Once the hunters are dead, activate the switch at the back of the room for a
story scene.


--------------------
Part 2: The Composer
--------------------
When you are back in control, head through the door to the right and exit into
the large outdoor area.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: At this point, instead of heading straight across
          the area, head over to the far right of the rocky area. You’ll find
          a tunnel here with the terminal inside.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


Head across the rocky ground and enter the objective marker indicated structure
 Wait for the guard here to open the door for you and continue up the ramp
behind it. Kill the jackal and grunt here and make your way towards the far
door. As you approach it will lock, so backtrack to the door we entered from
and look just to the left of it for a service tunnel. Enter this and follow
it.

In the room at the end, kill any enemies in close proximity. You will also see
a grunt on a turret down the passage to the left.  Do not go down the tunnel
or you will get slaughtered. Instead, look to the right for a room, follow the
passage to the end and you will exit to the right of the turret allowing you
to flank the turret and kill the rest of the grunts and the elite here.

You can enter the door at the end of the hallway to enter the next room at
ground level or through the door to the left to enter the next room on a
balcony. Clear out the room of hostiles.  Note that along the right hand wall
of the room are three emergency exits and each of these is going to open and
release covenant forces into the room.  These will release elites, grunts and
jackals in various formations.

Once the enemies are dead, go through the next open door opposite the exit. Go
down the ramp to the left. At the bottom turn right and assassinate the elite
here. Kill the grunts and the jackals in the room ahead. Move down to the far
end and climb the ramp to the left. Kill any enemies around here.

At the top of the ramp, turn right and enter the room. This one is almost
identical to the previous room, with three doors on the right which will open.
Eliminate the elites, grunts and jackals in the main room, and take out the
jackal sniper on the platform at the top of the room. Once these enemies start
dying the three emergency exits is going to open and release covenant forces
into the room.  As with the previous room, these will release elites, grunts
and jackals in various formations. Once they are all dead, go through the door
that opens on the second floor.

Follow the tunnel to the end.  Enter the door here.  You’ll be on a circular
balcony area. Just to the left, you will see a console. Look closely and you’ll
see a cloaked elite. Kill him and his other elite buddy hanging out in the
left of the room. Activate the console.   After a few moments, remove Cortana
from the socket and head through the door on the opposite side of the platform
from the entry.

Follow the hallway all the way to the end, killing the grunts and jackals as
you go.  Enter the door to the left at the end and climb the stairs. At the
top of the stairs, clear all the enemies out of the hallway opposite the entry
door - be careful though as one of the elites is packing an energy sword. Once
everything is dead, continue through the door at the end of the hallway.


---------------------------------
Part 3: All Things Lost and Found
---------------------------------
You are in another semi-circular room. Look to the left for a Spartan laser if
you feel like it and then continue over to the right side of the room to enter
the door. Once you are outside, hop into the mantis. Now all we need to do is
defend the area. A steady stream of phantoms (backed up with banshees) are
going to pour in to the area to drop off enemies. We need to kill everything
and whilst doing this you are going to have to deal with wraiths, ghosts,
banshees and tonnes of infantry units. Luckily we have a mantis!

Once the enemies stop coming, return back across the rocky area to where we
met the doctor previously. Enter the door.  Go into the first door to the left
and activate the control panel here.

When you are able, hit the switch to the right of the door to end the mission.

Midnight  [ACT08]
===============================================================================

---------------------
Part 1: One Last Shot
---------------------
During the first 4-5 minutes of this mission, you will be flying a fighter ship
through the area. I'm not going to give you a blow by blow, but the essentials
are to avoid the various moving walls and turret fire as you go. Note that you
can destroy the turrets along the way. You are also able to lower the red
shields - when you see one, shoot the circular red power core in the centre to
disable the shield.

After around 5 minutes of manuevering through the various obstacles, you will 
fly out into an open area.


------------------------
Part 2: From the Cradle…
------------------------
You will exit into a large outdoor area. In the centre is a circular structure.
Around the edges of the area are four structures, you’ll see an orange laser
shooting out from the top of them. Each of these structures has an entrance to
either side of it with an orange power generator inside. We need to fly around
the outside of the area, avoiding or destroying the turrets and each of the
generators as you go. Once all four have been destroyed a scene will play.


---------------------
Part 3: …To the Grave
---------------------
When we are back on our feet, continue through the door in front and enter the
main room. Destroy all of the watchers and any laser emplacements they put
down in the area.  Continue through the door to the left.  There are two
knights in here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note – Terminal Location: At this point, enter the door to the right and
   look behind the structure in front of the door for the final terminal.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: For finding all seven terminals, you will unlock the achievement
         ‘Terminus’.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Kill any watchers in the terminal room. And follow the room to the far end. 
After entering the door, kill the pair of knights in this room. Go through the
open door and jump down the hole. Follow the passage down here until you reach
an outdoor area. Stick Cortana into the pedestal on the right of the platform.
Enter the portal that appears nearby.

Head up the ramp and across the platform, killing crawlers as you go. When
they are dead another portal will appear so head on through.  We’ll be on a
larger platform.  Kill the four knights and the watchers here.  Once it’s
clear to do so, make your way over to the portal marked with the objective
marker.

In the next room, you will find four glowing pits on the ground with weapons
hovering above them.  Note the gravity hammer here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>> Note: if you grab the gravity hammer, you can earn an achievement ‘Chief,
         Smash!’ for killing three crawlers with a single hammer swing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Continue into the portal on the other side of the room.

Walk down the ramp and you’ll see a knight in front who will warp away. 
Explore the platform and make your way across to the right. Eliminate the four
knights and the crawlers wandering around as you proceed and then enter the
portal at the end.

Continue along the bridge until you reach the main platform. Eliminate the
knight, watchers and the crawlers around the area. Once it is all clear, stick
Cortana into the pedestal in front.  You will notice that there are two
bridges leading to this platform. We will have to defend the area against a
large number of crawlers.

Defend the platform for a couple of minutes and when everything is good to go
grab Cortana out of the socket and continue across the opposite bridge from
where we entered and into the portal on the far side of the platform killing
any crawlers that get in your way.

Go through the door and step into the gravity lift to ascend to the next area.


-------------------
Part 4: Old Friends
-------------------
Run up the ramp and step on the Launchpad on the floor. When you reach the
platform on the far side of the jump, climb the ramp and enter the door.  Loot
the weapon racks here if you wish and then go out the next door. Drop down to
the platform below. Insert Cortana into the pedestal.

Afterwards, you will see two objective markers that appear on either side of
the area. Let’s go down the ramp to the left first and hit the launch pad to
hop across to the next platform.

Kill the knight in front, and then head down the ramp to the right. Kill the
knight and any crawlers that attack here and climb the ramp to your left. Kill
any crawlers at the top. Turn left and kill the knights here before proceeding
up the ramp to the objective marker and activate the light bridge. Continue
across the bridge and eliminate the pair of knights on the other side. Proceed
to the right and kill the crawlers here and the pair of knights at the end of
the path. When clear, insert Cortana into the pedestal.  Drop down off the
platform to the left and run onto the jump pad here.

Once on the next platform, deal with the knight on the platform in front and
to the left and any crawlers in the immediate area before heading up the ramp
at the back of the room.  On the next platform, kill the crawlers and watchers
here.  Drop down to the platform below on the left, kill the two knights here
and then make your way over to the jump pad to reach the next platform.

This platform will play out identically to the first room in the area, head
down the ramp to the right. Kill the watchers and any crawlers that attack
here and climb the ramp to your left.  Kill any crawlers at the top. Turn left
and kill the crawlers and watchers here before proceeding up the ramp to the
objective marker.  Activate the light bridge. Continue across the bridge and
eliminate the watcher and the crawlers here. Proceed to the right and kill the
crawlers here and the knight at the end of the path. When clear, insert
Cortana into the pedestal. 

After the scene, drop down off the platform to the left and run onto the jump
pad here.

As you land on the next platform, four knights will teleport in to attack you.
Defeat them all, stand on the glowing blue circle on the ground on the central
platform. It’s a gravity lift! Ride it to the top and proceed along the light
bridge.

During the scene, follow the in-screen button prompts to complete the mission
and the game.

Congratulations, you have finished Halo 4!

***  TERMINAL LOCATIONS  *** [TMNLC]
 **************************
   **********************

There are 7 terminals hidden throughout Halo 4 that will give players a little
extra insight into Master Chief's latest foray into the Halo galaxy via Halo
Waypoint. The terminals are also tied into two achievements, 'Contact the
Domain'for finding your first terminal and 'Terminus' for finding all seven
terminals throughout the campaign.

Here are the locations of all 7 terminals:


1. Level: Requiem    - Before exiting the level, look below the elevator to
                       find the terminal hidden away behind it.
 
2. Level: Forerunner - Whilst heading towards the second pylon, before entering
                       the structure via the ramps on the left/right of the
                       area you can find this at gorund level sitting below the
                       doorway.

3. Level: Infinity   - After the first cut-scene with the marines. as soon as
                       you regain control of master chieft, do a 180 degree
                       turn to find it sitting right behind you.

4. Level: Reclaimer  - Following the cut-scene with the librarian, grab Cortana
                       off the pedestal and make your way to the open door on
                       the opposite side of the room. As soon as you enter the
                       door, look immediately to the right to see it at the nd
                       of a short hallway.

5. Level: Shutdown   - After completing the first two objectives, Cortana will
                       point us to a third objective marker on another tower.
                       Land here and go up the gravity lift inside. At the
                       top, work your way around to the leftmost platform in
                       the room to find this terminal against the central
                       structure.

6. Level: Composer   - After the fight with the two hunters and meeting the
                       doctor for the first time, you will make your way to a
                       large open area. Look on the right side of the area for
                       a tunnel containing the terminal.

7. Level: Midnight   - Once you are back on foot following the flight sequence,
                       look behind the central structure in the fourth room.

Donations
===============================================================================

After a few generous emails and suggestions from readers and because donations
seem to be a growing trend among other contemporary guide writers, I have
decided to put in the option to alow you to donate if you so wish. 

Although I make these guides for free in my spare time, I probably don’t 
need to point out to gamers that purchasing games is an expensive hobby and 
writing guides for them can be a thankless task at times, but one that I enjoy
(when I have enough free time to get the chance to do one!). 

By no means feel obligated to donate just for viewing my guide, but if you are
feeling a little generous I certainly won’t object! Any amount is appreciated
whether it be 10 cents or $10 All funds go to purchasing new games to create
new guides, and honestly, who wouldn't want those? 

Heres the stuff you need!
