You’ll be in charge of a handful of units, namely Sergeant Forge and 6 Hornets.

Quickly make your way over to the subway and clear the area of the Covenant.

Make your way over to #1 and #2, ignoring #3 completely.  That one will always get blown up, so you’d be wasting your time with it, since it’s a scripted event.  Instead, save the civilians by escorting them to #1 and #2 continuously.

You’ll want to grab the [BLACK BOX #4].  This is located just north of the starting location, where you will soon be able to build a base.  Take note of this location, as you’ll also have the possibility to escort a character called Adam.

When building the base, make an Air Pad ASAP (you’ll first need to build two Reactors) and create a few Hornets.  Also build one Turret to be safe, along with a Supply Pad.  Keep creating new Hornets and deploy groups of two or three at #1 and #2, and manually have a squad of around 4 Hornets go over the civilians to ensure their safety.

Be sure to secure the subway area (where all civilians are coming out of), ideally with a Scorpion and three Hornets.  Manually guide the civilians to one of the two escorts and try to save as many as you can.  You have 20 minutes to do this.

When you have a little breather - although you shouldn’t expect it - escort Adam to one of the escape by selecting the door nearby where you found the black box.

If you want to collect the Skull, kill 50 Elites first, then look at the Bronze Statue east from the base on street and collect it quickly with Hornets.
