     i. STORY
    Halo wars... Set 20 years before the start of the HALO trilogy and Master Chief
    was introduced to us. This is the years following the fall and reclaiming of
    HARVEST, a colony planet of Humans that fell to the Covenant. Expected to be
    a swift reclaimation, the title introduction to Halo Wars featured by Capt.
    Cutters personal report log turns it from a swift victory into 5 years of Hell
    as he classifys the entire planet as just... HELL.
    Halo Wars is completely different from the traditional halo and you will not
    be doing any of the first person shooting yourself. You are in control of
    the armies on the ground. You are their leader, now lead.
    Alright here is a breakdown of the units system that you will be using.
    There are 4 things useful to making a successful campaingn. 
     - Leader Bonuses
       + These can make or break a campaign. Selecting a leader on random can
         do good but choosing a campaign leader for their stats and how they can
         perform under the circumstances you need is the best way to go. Each
         leader, Human or Covenant, does not have the same powers. Though they
         Are similar there is one basic difference. Covenant powers run based on
         time used not just single shot or single use per use. So if you use the
         Prophet of regrets Cleansing beam, it will continuously eat up supplies
         until you turn it off or you run out. Whearas if you use Capt. Cutters
         MAC Cannon support system, you will fire, regenerate and fire again. Both
         sides have effective upgrades to increase the strength of their attacks
         and for the covenant, make the usefulness vs. consumption ratio more
     - Supplies
       + Supplies are the mainstay of the game and how you create forces. These
         Can be gathered three ways. First, collecting them randomly on the ground
         with support forces. This is a very unreliable way of collecting supplies
         and should only be used at the beginning of a game where you will need
         alot to start off with. Next, you build a supply base or warehouse which
         will continously provide you with supplies throughout the game you are in
         at a regular interval. Upgrading these facilities will increase their
         production interval by two times what it was as a basic facility. The last
         way to aquire supplies in the game is to sell or recycle unneeded men or
         facilities in which you will lose that item but gain a return on supplies.
         A good tactic should you have a few high supply items and are in desperate
         need for supplies.
     - PowerTechnology
       + Almost as important as Supplies, if you do not upgrade your technology by
    	building another reactor you will simply lose. Upgrading your technology
    	level may be expensive but if you do not you will not be able to access the
    	higher levels of tech needed to win over your opponent such as Scorpion tanks
    	or Scarabs.
     - Population caps
       + Although an annoying part of the game it plays an important part. Caps on
    	populations will limit you in size that you can grow your army but it will
    	also make you maintain your armies well. Each unit you produce to go out and
    	attack on the field will take upward to 6 men to produce. Simple infantry are
    	comprised of only 1 population while as vehicles can be 2, 4 or even 6 men
    	added to your population at one time. You may get from the Field Arsenal an
    	upgrade that raises your population from 30 to 40 but other than that your cap
    	is only what you make it. besides, in a very fast paced game you will rarely
    	need to worry about hitting your cap. Also, spartan troops have their own
    	limit and do not affect your overall troop count.

    of Age Of Empires style of control. You are basically a floating entity
    governing what goes on under you. You can control both USNC and Covenant
    forces on a variety of maps.

    depending on your choice of leader
    D-pad left - cycle between your bases
    D-pad right - cycle to the last heard announcement
    D-pad down - cycle your active armies
    Alright in the Biographies section I will tell you about each individual unit
    and what they can be upgraded to be in the future will all special upgrades.
    Individual detals about those upgrades can be found in their specific places
    such as the Marines, to find out how much the RPG upgrade costs find the

    iii. Special Techs
    In game on certain maps you may encounter units and technologies that
    you may commendeer and use yourself. These are what I have found so far.
    Sniper towers
    	Throughout all the skirmish missions and regular missions there will be sniper
    	towers that can be garrisoned. These provide increased visibility, defense,
    	and attack power for units garrisoned there. They are heavily amplified by
    	the type of unit you put there toward specific units. Such as a spartan laser
    	or spartan with a rocket launcher vs. airborne units and vehicles and Marines
    	vs. grunts. Damage is increased significantly and damage recieved reduced by
    Energy barriers
    	only in 3 skirmish maps will you find these. They have a garrisonable sniper
    	tower that once garrisoned, cannot be passed by any forces. Wall comes down
    	when troops destroyed or ungarrisoned. Good for channeling forces or blocking
    	off yoru base from attacks.
    Fire Cannons
    	Large cannons you can garrison after taking out forces and use to assault from
    	extremely long range. Good for backing up troops in a hurry and your leader
    	power is exhausted. Costs 100 supplies per shot.
    Forerunner supply posts
    	Garrisonable supply posts you can garrison and gain supplies from at the rate
    	of a heavy supply pad or Blessed Warehouse
    Forerunner Reactor & ONI Reactors
    	Gives 1 technology level while garrisoned
    Forerunner Healing Rod
    	Only makes one appearance, but gathering your troops around it automatically
    creates a healing field that heals anything and everything in range.
    Forerunner Troop dispensers
    Forerunner Protector dispenser
    	+ will produce three types of protectors for you. Offensive, defensive, and
    	healing to aid you in and out of battle.

    Garrisonable debris

    	downed pelicans, exploded trucks, etc. Hide behind for defensive boost.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ i. PREFACE ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Halo wars takes place exactly 21 years before the events of Halo 3 sequenced
    events begin to take place. Harvest... a planet that was a human colony in a
    sector far from human controled territory, was attacked and plauged by the
    Jirahharde, or as humans know them, Brutes. These warriors fought ferociously
    and were thought to be an easy win, the missions seem like they would only take
    a few weeks to clear out the planet and retake Harvest... This... according
    to the Captain of the Spirit of Fire, was turned into 5 years of hell.
    Murphys law - Everything can go wrong... will go wrong
    and it did...
    This is the story, and the mission of the Spirit of Fire, originally a cargo
    and civilian ship, it was made into a battle carrier outfitted with bays
    to hold infantry bunkers, ammo, hangers and deployable bases instead of center
    house communities and hordes of civilians. It was also retro-fitted to house a
    large Magnetic Accelerator Cannon, or MAC gun and a UNSC AI system to help run
    the systems named Serina. Captain Cutter and his crew were valued members of
    the UNSC, and this... was how they lived.

     Welcome to Harvest, the icy hell of the fringe worlds. Starting today, you
     	will be meeting Sgt. Forge, Sergeant on station for the Spirit of Fire in
     	defense of Harvest. You will be controlling him as your leader unit for the
     	mission. You are instructed by Serina and Capt. Cutter to retake Alpha, your
     	Base that has been overrun by Covenant forces. Start by just moving around
    	and getting a feel for the controls if you havent done so already in one of
    the skirmish modes. Start by following the blue arrow North, there you will
     	find a platoon of marines that has been pinned down and defending themselves
     	from some elites. Liberate them and add them to your forces. Keep moving and
     	following the arrow, you will keep coming upon more squads that have been
     	pinned down by enemy forces that you will need to destroy. Once you free the
     	3rd platoon, you will be close to the base and Serina will inform you that
     	the Covenant forces have erected a force shield on the base. Pass over the
     	bridge that houses the Black box for this level and turn left to see it.
     	Several squads of marines will come from the left, defend them and then have
     	them walk throught the barrier and destroy the power. Oh... guns wont work?

    	The Opening cutscene shows Forge looking down on the Covenant stronghold 
    	openingw hat they called a relic. Really it seems to be from understanding, a
    	Forerunner outpost. Whats inside... awaits to be seen. The Arbiter seems 
    	unusually tense and demands that it be opened imediately and turns around
    	as if he heard Sgt. Forge from behind but he has already moved out of sight.
    	Back on the spirit of fire... Capt. Cutter comes to the Observation deck to
    	find Anders station set up there. After confronging her she is informed
    	that its not safe to go down but insists on going. He grants permission for
    	her to go but swears to peel her out if she does run into trouble.
    	Back at the relic, the Arbiter is told to destroy the relic by Regret.
    	Alright, a real mission. Time to go. This time, your going to be rebuilding 
    	Alpha base ontop of the original. Start by contstructing alpha and following
    	Serina's orders for a minute, get the feel and then build like hell. You will
    	need all the help you can get.

    	supplies around the base that are scattered. After the base is built, she
    	will instruct you on what to do from there. Building a barracks, and asupply
    	pad are the first two. After the barracks are built, you are instructed
    	to create 5 marines to create military force on the ground. After the 5 
    	Marine squads are constructed you are given free reign over the base and the
    	imposed lockdown is lifted. North, is your target, the forerunner outpost.
    	You must take marines and overrun that outpost and claim it. Start by 
    immediately creating a reactor and upgrading it. This will give you further
    	access to vehicles and upgrades so it will make the trip so much easier.
    	Going out either door, you may proceed northward but going out to the West 
    	will give you the opportunity to increase your forces further with marines
    	pinned down in need of rescuing. Help them and they will join your forces
    	to head to the outpost.
    	So head out of the base in either direction and Serina will tell you that
    	some of the warthog patrols have gone missing... curious. You can either
    	check it out or continue on to the north. If you go out of the west side
    	you will run up on the first patrol pretty quick. 2 warthogs trapped in an
    	energy sheild. Pretty easy, just 1 grunt squad protecting them. After that
    	its just walk to the north and take the base there. The only problem...
    	is that between you and that base, is a covenant outpost. To take that out,
    	you might have to get just a tad bit creative. But just garrisoning troops
    	near all the debris should be enough for you to hold off anything they can
    	throw at you on the second mission. 
    	A good strategy would be to get your hands on a scorpion or two and it will
    	be no problem taking out the outpost. You can also create your own outpost 
    top of that one if you so desire. After you get a significant enough force,
    	send a few squads of marines through the energy shield to take it down and go
    	take that Forerunner outpost. The Covenant have placed a giant detonator for
    	their explosives in the Foyer of the outpost, destroy it and the mission is

    Mission 3 Walkthrough
     Starting out you wont have a leader to use, your going to be all by your lone
    	self with a couple of grizzly tanks. You have to use these to fight your
    	way to Sgt. Forge's position and bail him out. Simple, just use the overly
    	umped up tanks to bulldoze down anything in your path. Beware though, there
    	are several places around that have methane tanks and turrets that can do
    	much more damage if you are close so avoid these. When you reach the place
    	where they are pinned down at you need to take out all enemy forces surround
    	ing the fortressed area. Not hard, and you have 2 ways of fire so should be
    	fast to mop up. For the good news, Prof. Anders has the ability to fix your
    	tanks for you. Sgt. Forge will boast alittle about how he modded them but
    	just task her ability on the grizzly tanks to repair them cause they might
    	need it. Turn around and head back for the energy bridge and all your going
    	find is that the bridge has been destroyed by a few disrespectful little 
    grunts. Evil little buggers.
    	You have to go to the other one and hack in. It will be easy with marines
    	and fight your way all the way over. Prof. Anders will be able to activate
    	the bridge and get everyone off to safety and now you can also let covenant
    	forces cross the bridge as you turn it off, not very nice but it gives you
    	objective points. So much for playing fair, lol. It will take her 1 minute
    	to activate the bridge, so just mass around her and make sure nothing hits
    	her while she is working and the bridge will come online. Cross the bridge
    	and start running.
    	Pretty much now its smooth sailing, just bulldoze through the forces that
    	are remaining. Just make sure to see that anders is alive to get to the LZ
    	otherwise its mission over. Get back to the pelican and the mission is over.
    	It will cut to a cutscene of the pelican escaping with the sgt and your

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	You will go into a dual series of Cutscenes. The first one is Capt. Cutter
    	and Anders talking about what she saw down in the Harvest base site where
    	the Forerunner Tech opened up and showed a giant star diagram. This had went
    	and pointed at a system called Arcadia and she pleads her case knowing that
    	something is up and she wants him to take the ship and follow the points that
    	were displayed. He approves it and leaves the lab and she snips at Serina
    	after she makes a very sarcastic comment at the commander.
    	Next, the captain is on the deck of the cruiser looking out over the planet
    	Arcadia. Serina tells him about the battle that had occured there a day or so
    	ago when the covenant came out of slipstream before them. 2 ships were down
    	and two more damaged. One of them is familiar, the Pillar of Autumn. None the
    	less, he sees the pictures sent to the ship from the planet of spartans on
    	the ground and he orders an immediate assuault force down to protect the 
    	You start out dropped on the battlefield with Forge and 6 Hornets and are
    	told to help the citizens to the launch pads. Fight with everything in the
    	courtyard so that they can start moving toward the evac stations. Shoot all
    	that moves and make sure that they dont get assaulted. Quickly, whithin a
    	minute of your countdown to EVAC clock starting at 20 min. the third location
    	will radio a distress signal demanding aid and promptly cut to a cutscene of
    	it blowing up and trying to take off.
    	Dont even bother trying to save it, its part of the plot that it will be
    	destroyed. This prompts Red team and Forge to request additional camps on
    	the ground to secure their location. There are two base platforms you can
    	build on. One at the starting point of the mission and the other is opposite
    	the covenant base. Start manufacturing troops and do your best to hold off
    	enemy forces.
    	The best strategy here is to make airborne troops. Dont assault the covenant
    	base, you have nither the time nor the resources to make an assault unit
    	large enough unless you start as soon as you are given the green light. I am
    	also assuming you are attempting without skulls. With skulls, by all means
    	but for gameplay, you need to defend civilians with your lives. Sacrifices
    	will be made in this level but its for the good of the people on the ground.
    	Try to mass units around transport 1 alot because they attack in sequence. So
    	magnifying your position and defending it while using the heal and repair
    	power should do the job. Dont do anything brave, it wont work so well.
    	Also, there is something about Andy you get to save. I have no knowledge of
    	what significance this plays if someone can care to share what this is about
    	then that would be of help.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	Alright, your right there in this mission. You start out retreating. DO NOT
    	ENGAGE!!! Just run south to your base site that Serina has picked for you. 
    	Once you reach there fortify your position and hold off all intruding enemy
    orces while the base is built and clear out any enemies around the base. You
    	will be the mainstay of anyone coming to retreat out of the mission space
    	Arcadia so you have to defend that spot. You will be told after the base is
    	operational that other UNSC troops will be falling back to your position so 
    	watch out for them, they will come in handy.
    	After ya few minutes you will get conformation that the Covenant are building
    	bases and a large mega turret. You will need to take out this turret to be 
    	able to construct a secondary objective base. Build a large enough force and
    	drive it up to take back your land and knock out the covenant stronghold.
    	They dont have much over there so it shouldnt be hard to take them out but
    	beware of that turret, cause it will give you problems if you dont take it
    	down. To take it out, it is heavily advised to use the cobra anti building
    	and other heavy infantry to take it out.
    	The easiest strategy is to line the entire road with nothing but soldiers. 
    	From the evacuating squads there should be a few troops that are ODST which
    	will be great to use but giving yourself time to prepare a heavily armored
    	assult, especially on harder difficulties, is heavily advised.
    	There are two ways you can go about getting to the base the covenant have
    	constructed. You can go straight up the middle which also might be heavily
    	foritified if you had not done so yourself, or you can follow a destroyed
    	highway up the side and around to the back of the station. Its possible to
    	do both and flank them on both sides but difficult to pull off since the 
    	other is the slower route than just going up the middle. but it also takes
    	you right by where you need to collect the Skull for the level so... nothing
    	Either way, when you assuault the base, if you start having too much trouble
    	dont worry, Serina has some reinforcements coming for you. Its an entire
    	squad of Spartans. They are there to help you out and are actually kinda 
    	snotty about it. But no worries, they are here to kick ass and so are you.
    	Destroy the base and they will go, and at the end of the mission Capt. Cutter
    	calls down to you and says there is a new problem and to get up to the ship.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	A Big bubble? Honestly thats all the problem is is a big bubble? Well... its
    	no ordinary bubble, this bubble is surrounding covenant forces on the planet
    	and well.... we want to take a look inside the bubble now. Covenant Forces on
    	the planet Arcadia have dropped a massive dome on the ground and are doing 
    	something on the planet. Whatever it may be, its your job to get down there
    	and into it. Anders starts thinking aloud and mentions that you could maybe
    	use plasma to puncture the dome, and they happen to have some retrofitted
    	Rhino Tanks with Plasma launchers over on the other carrier that wasnt downed
    	in the first Arial battle. Covninent eh? Well take planetside and you need to
    	get these very conveniently availible rhinos into position to destroy that
    	Anders is not playable but she is giving commands and takes over the rhinos
    	once they are in position. Your job is to position them acording to where she
    	thinks is best and let them fire on the shield. Your first objective point is
    	directly infront of the base, simple as it may be. Request a rhino from the
    	drop pad just north of your base by clicking on the radial dial that appears
    	when you activate it and drive it over. Some ODST soldiers will come down and
    	help to defend the rhino. Sadly, you dont get to control these soldiers. But
    	you will have some help from Rhinos along the way.
    	Beware for the base, you will constantly be being buzzed with banshees the
    	whole time you are there. Destroy 50 of these and you get the skull for the
    	level which appears in a hanger just behind the base. To help you first off,
    	there are two reactors right near the base you can garrison that you can use
    	to get technology without even trying, this should make defending the base
    	somewhat easier if you have some high leveled equipment early on. These are
    	located both one to the north of the base and one just south of the base when
    	you start.
    	The second rhino position will be just to your west, alittle south of the
    	first position but theres something fishy... oh wait thats just a covenant
    	base camp there. Destroy it for the location and place the second rhino there
    	to fire.
    	Anders will come on the horn now and say that the Rhinos are there, but she
    	needs more of them set up. There is a third location that you can get but
    	great... you have to drop in... with opposition... great... Summon a pelican
    	and drop right in the middle of the pad and clear it off, then get you a 
    	Rhino to place there and your done. It will cut to a cut scene where all 
    	three will fire and the shield will temporarily collaps. Alas... more are
    	needed and then out of the woodwork Locusts appear. Great... now there are
    	more problems. These buggers are tricky, cause they are literaly mini Scarab
    	tanks. Locust cannons can take out infantry in a few seconds if left alone.
    	Teh best offense against them is the Cobra tanks and scorpions. Otherwise,
    	its gonna be a long fight cause infantry do just about nothing to them.
    	The last two will be heavily armored so you will need a larger force. I would
    	say maybe have a population close to 20 is good for it. Everything should be
    	running smoothly at this point and if you jacked a locust from the covenant
    	you should be very well off at this point.
    	Take the remaining two positions and run rhinos over to them and voila, 
    	you got a big bottle of insta shield down. You control the MAC cannon now, 
    	with enough rounds to kill everything in there. All you need to focus on are
    	air defenses and shield generators however. After you take out those then
    	Serina will simultaniously take out all remaining targets with a full burst
    	from the MAC cannon. Now to see what they wanted so badly down there.

    	The Arbiter starts out, seemingly questioning his faith for the Prophet of
    	Regret talks about what his mission is. For a time they speak of why he is
    	only doing small tasks and missions and makes it apparently clear he is ready
    	to do more than simple tasks and destroy humanity.. not very nice if you ask
    	me... But either way he is fed up with just searching empty temples and 
    	not being able to fight. The Prophet thinks for a moment and starts to touch
    	one of the forerunner devices which turns red at his touch and does nothing.
    	He says that the girl that was at the temple followed the same path to where
    	they are, reffering to Prof. Anders. He orders her capture and to bring her
    	to the temple to examine what she knows. The Arbiter can only sigh and abide
    	as he walks away with his task.
    	Alright... now here is a battle. You are immediately encountered with a super
    	Scarab that you will have to defeat. You start off with only a handful of
    	tanks and some warthogs and a whole base with 6000 supplies, sounds simple?
    	Well take it with a grain of salt.
    	The best strategy to use is just swarm it, start with the warthogs you do
    	have and sacrifice one to scout the area. Your going to notice two things,
    	First, there are a profusion of Locust Tanks around. They are going to give
    	any slow moving equipment trouble. Second, there are 7 nodes laying around
    	with cords leading back to the big boss Scarab up on the hill. These nodes
    	are supplying power to the scarab to be able to move right now. The easiest
    	way in the world to cripple the bad guy is to take away its food right? So
    	roll out one of your warthogs to a location and MAC a node. This should give
    	you some breathing room to move because that first node cuts the rotation
    	speed close to in half. With this, moving around the map gets easier, just
     	stay out of the evil beam of light and you should be fine.
    	Warthogs work great alone on this map. Actually its honestly the best way
    	to go. Get an entire fleet of warthogs under your command, ONLY warthogs 
    	and equip them with Gauss rifles and you should be able to finish the level
    	just with that. Take out all 7 of the nodes and all the locusts you can, and
    	then just attack the Scarab, dodging back and forth avoiding the head. They
    	dont last long in the gaze of the scarab but being able to get out of the
    	way is critical and the slower units? they just cant cut it here. So leave
    	your marines in the barracks and move on without them.
    	If you destroy enough locusts, during the mission the skull will apear near
    	powermode most Eastward on the scarabs immediate right.
    	About halfway down on health, Serina will come on line and tell you so, then
    	you will be swarmed by banshee. Dont panic, it isnt to hard to destroy them
    	with 20+ gauss cannons aimed up at them so just keep your warthogs moving.

    	and a Spartan claiming she is a security violation he orders that they persue
    	course and resuce her. Serina, being as witty as she was programmed makes the
    	comment "So, we left a note saying we're leaving right?"
    	The camera pans from a strange planet as two ships exit slipspace in orbit. A
    	creature turns around and looks at the camera... one we can only assume is
    	a Halo Fans worst nightmare.... Flood.
    	On deck, Serina cant tell the Captain where they are as they look out on the
    	planet from orbit. There is no sign of Anders but a few rough coordinates
    	Serina has been able to calculate. Thankfully, no other Covenant Activity
    	seems to stir on the planet but there are strange readings coming from the
    	planet itself. Time... to investigate.
    	You start on the planet on foot with an Elephant tank pinned down vs... Brute
    	Forces? JiralHanae surround your starting position. Easiest way to go is to
    	set up the elephant so the turrets block the entryway to your little alcove
    	produce as many forces as your heart will desire. Keep trying to break out
    	and a team of Spartans will come to bail you out. Thankfully, you can escape
    	and head to your beacon. 
    	The easiest way to initiate this is just sacrifice some supplies and carpet
    	bomb a line of their forces, particularly aim for a brute chopper if you can
    	manage. Forge will then ask why Serina said there was no Covenant activity
    	while looking at some Brutes. She will explain and then Red team will drop in
    	to give some support.
    	While you are fighting the Brutes, the other two elephants will fall to enemy
    	forces of unknown origin and you are ordered to investigate the incidents to
    	make sure that Echo and India squads are ok. Set up your elephant there in
    	the clearing so you can get some troops. In the calm if you want, take a 
    	squad to the east and flank out to find the Black box for this level on a 
    	cliff near the starting point.
    	Move out to the west now, and start searching, just follow the wreckage and
    	you will find your missing elephants and squads. Fight off the flood and 
    	liberate your comrades and bring them to base. You will need to keep ALL 3
    	elephants alive for this endeavor. Quickly go about transporting each to safe
    	locations since they move very slowly and build up your base quickly to repel
    	enemy attacks.
    	From the First drop way point, the Elephants are both Due east of your
    	location and south east along the path that curves downward. Both of these
    	have heavy resistance so be ready for a fight. Typically, flamethrowers work
    	wonders here and their flames seem to have an added bonus on flood infantry
    	and spores. Dont let your infantry get into spore clouds, otherwise they will
    	become infected and begin to attack their comrades after being turned into
    	floods themselves.
    	Send in your Spartans. On foot they may be slow but their inability to be
    	infected and resistance to dying make them invaluable for scouting. Find your
    	enemy positions and try to liberate them while renforements come from behind.
    	All throughout the area there are egg sacs that contain either supplies or
    	more infectious spores, be careful about what you shoot. Exploring here can
    	lead you to quick death so be careful. Depending on what you find, Capt.
    	Cutter will ask for a report down on the field and Forge will say while
    	the camera pans that Echo and India have been comprimised by non Brute forces
    	on the planet.
    	Liberate the first elephant and transport it back to the new base that has
    	been granted to the area. Set up your elephants around it to help defend the
    	base and basically add turrets to its disposal. Hold off flood troops while
    	you can get a foothold and then move down to rescue the other elephant. I can
    	suggest that you leave your elephants behind and produce marines from them
    	so you can move faster.
    	There are two things to do. Save the Elephant and resuce all of the marines
    	that are trapped. After you liberate both you can retreat and end the mission
    	to an early creepily end... its not the last time you will fight the flood.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	So... Anders has been kidnapped and rough coirdinates have been made. 
    	So... lets find her.
    	Red team made their way out a while ago, and got pinned down, you need to
    	go retrieve them now. Starting off at the base that you created with the
    	Elephants from the last mission go aead and make a warthog or two and start
    	upgrading your base. You might want some heavy artiliery in a bit. Just to
    	the east of the base compound there are some Flood pods that can be attacked
    	to release supplies you will need. Everything else, you need to start looking
    	for goign into the field.
    	Soon, you will find no matter what direction you turn, a mother spawn for 
    	flood forces. There are five of these highlighted on your map. One to the
    	direct west, 2 to the direct north, one to the north east. Honestly... this
    	is one of the easiest missions because you are only dealing with opponents
    	that have no sheilding or defenses whatsoever, but it can also be long and
    	drawn out if you want it to be.
    	If you want the optional objective of taking out all 5 of the spawn areas
    	then you need to fan out and find them, you will be given more information
    	once you locate one of the 5. Red team will inform you that they saw them and
    	put markers on your map for you to locate them. Each of these taken out will
    	take health away from the big one back where Red team is pinned down fighting
    	at and each one that you make dormant will Take away health. BEWARE!!!
    	These things do not die, they just lie dormant. Some... depending will lie
    	dormant for only a few minutes or they will stay dormant for the entire
    	rest of the mission. So they can come back at any time, it seems to be 
    	random when they do.
    	Go ahead and fortify your location by finding the garrisonable debris right
    	out north of the compound and start making some slightly heavy artilery to
    	assault with. Just because they dont die dont mean you hit lightly. Build
    	Scorpions or I perfer cobras to battle and maybe one or two wolverines with
    	volley skills to deal with the arial bugs your going to be dealing with.
    	But... going straight in and facing that big bug up front, you want to have
    	plenty of artiliary. If you want to take out all of the other ones first for
    	weaking it first OR if you are trying to get the acheivement for it, then you
    	want a healthy balance between artilery and Arial units because you will be
    	combating that way vs. plenty of ground troops that the hornets do very well
    	fighting against.
    	Each of the five smaller spawn points is lightly defended with PLENTY of
    	infectious forms swarming around. Flood stalks are around too that you can
    	shoot. Destroy one of these to get the sub objective for getting the skull.
    	The Large boss flood where the spartans are pinned down at has enough stuff
    	around it to make a covenant base look weak. But alot of them are slow moving
    	or have a short range. Which is why cobras would work so well against them.
    	Beware again, the flood pods that launch things from the ground are Terribly
    	effective vs. arial units and will decimate them if you just send in some
    	hornets or a vulture. Be sure to have that healthy balance when assaulting
    	Well it doesnt matter what route you decide to take, with a few squads of
    	marines and some artilery, you should be able to take out the boss colony
    	with no true problems.
    	After you defeat it, Serina gets on the horn again informing you that she is
    	picking up a new signal off to the east of your current location. Maybe 
    	its anders? Time to investigate.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	Anders is being held by the covenant at a temple looking place. Truth comes
    	to examine their capture, throughly insulting her claiming we dont look like
    	such a threat. Anders demands her reason for capture as another elite comes
    	to the arbiter. Apparently they have just learned of the Sprit's arival and
    	rescue attempts. The arbiter becomes enraged at this, throwing his subordiate
    	to the ground and charging off, demanding Truth be returned to High Charity.
    	He tells the cast to destroy the Spirit at once, seemingly at all costs.
    	The spirit is in orbit as the crew doubts Serina's interpritation of Anders'
    	signal. Suddenly she starts saying wierd things and realizing that the ship 
    	is being docked by something. The ocean opens up below them and Sentinals
    	begin to flood out of the creavice coming toward the Spirit. She gets cocky
    	with the captain as he orders all hands to the ship when it starts being
    	pulled into the creavase and puts out an APB to return to ship.
    	There are 3 platoons that are still on the planet and cant be evacuated. This
    	is due to the flight paths being infested by flood and arial flood swarms.
    	These creatures are pinning down the three squads rendering them isolated and
    	cannot be evacuated. Shortly after the mission starts an EVAC count down
    	will appear on screen showing you how much time you have to get all hands
    	onto pelicans and back to the ship. This can be altered in your favor by
    	use of a handy little device called the Gremlin. These vehicles will emit an
    	EMP pulse, rendering any electronic device harmless.
    	First the squads... the main mission objectives call for you to rescue these
    	three squads. Though they may be pinned down and relatively save themselves,
    	getting to them is going to be difficult. Alpha will be the easiest, and 
    	Charlie easier than Bravo, but getting bravo out is a trick.
    	You have one big piece of help to get you out of this mess, the CRYO bomb.
    	This freezes all oponents in range and damages, if not eliminates flying
    	targets. This is going to be a big help seeing as how there are hundreds
    	of flying swarm targets. Taking 350 of these out btw will activate the skull
    	which is south of a tractor beam.
    	ALPHA: Alpha is pinned down by the smallest and easiest to manage force to
    	help evac. Honestly if you have access to creating more scorpions this one is
    	done for you. Get the tanks and marines in position after cryo-ing the area
    	and you should be able to liberate Alpha pretty quickly. Once you liberate
    	Alpha, you will gain use of one of their Grizzly tank they left behind.
    	BRAVO: Bravo is going to be the hardest to liberate, mainly because the 
    	concentration of forces is so high within the flight path you need to clear 
    	out. You need to have your cryo bomb upgraded at least to Medium level for
    	it to have a significant enough effect on the flying swarms, otherwise your
    	just freezing them for a moment and since there is such a profusion of them
    	you need to be able to knock off a significant amount of them with less
    	difficulty as possible. A simple strategy for Bravo would be to use wolverine
    	craft to volley targets or Scorpion tanks and their Canister shells. Try not
    	to use marines as they would only turn into infected marines and start making
    	new targets for you to kill. This entire mission should be as marine free as
    	possible for that reason. Vehicles should be the way to go this time because
    	the more marines get hit with Spore clouds, the less your forces are AND the
    	more their forces are. But after you take out the Swarm Spawn point, it
    	shoudl get easier, just needing to concentrate on the things launching balls
    	of what looks like snot out at you and some other of the tenticals. Once you
    	do finally liberate Bravo, they will leave behind their Elephant for you do
    	use. Bravos location is also right on top of the black box for the level.
    	CHARLIE: Charlie is going to be slightly easier, just because there are less
    	units in the way. In the path are only 5 of the launching flood pods so you
    	arnt just wall to wall like you are in the Bravo corridor. Wipe them out and
    	get an EVAC to them so you can gain the use of the Spartans.
    	Depending on who you liberate last, they will be the ones who will stay on
    	the ground and you have to take that position in on foot. You will gain use
    	of all the platoons units that have been stranded there and you have to
    	transport all of them by foot to the pelican back at the base due to an
    	unforseen attack on the pelican. Just hoof it back to base camp with this
    	platoon and finish the mission.
    	Throughout this mission you will encounter pylons around the area. There are
    	4 total around. 2 of them are due north of base camp, one is just above Alpha
    	location, and the last is just below Charlie. These tractor beams are what
    	is pulling the Spirit down and by putting a Gremlin EMP next to them, you can
    	knock them out and also give yourself more time to complete the mission. Each
    	pylon is goign to give you abotu 5 extra minutes to finish the mission. The 
    	skull for this level is also near the one that is north of the base and
    	directly across from Charlie's location. There is an achievement for both
    	taking out all the pylons in the mission, and finishing the mission without
    	taking out a single pylon. Take your pick, cause you can only get both once
    	and not in the same playthrough.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	Being pulled into the planet is not your every day activity for the Spirit,
    	and all hands are quite nervous about it. Sentinals begin to scour the ship
    	cleaning off the Flood on the hull. You find out that this is not only a
    	planet, but its a Forerunner Shield World. Or quite literally, a planet size
    	bomb shelter, strong enough to hold off Halo ring firing from killing you.
    	Beside the point, its pulling you into the big planet thing and you dont
    	REALLY want to go... quietly lets say? Well still, flood on the hull is not 
    	good either. Serina becomes slightly nervous as the ship passes through the 
    	shield world walls. Serina ventures a guess that the ship is being pulled
    	through some docking procedure and some significant build up of Flood has
    	occured on the aft side of the hull.
    	Your main objective is to clean off all flood while also keeping the airlocks
    	up and running. Keeping at least one running is imperative to winning and
    	so keeping more working gives you a better chance of surviving.
    	Start by forming a small army of marines to take out the flood, maybe a Hog
    	or two but use alot of marines. You do have the carpet bombs and they should
    	come in very handy, especially with that large infestation at the aft of the
    	ship. You also have access to Cyclops with the ability to repair the ships
    	airlocks after you upgrde them to do so. Well... get moving. Time to work on
    	cleaning your ship... just like cleaning barnicles off of a Clipper ship.
    	Except well... the barnicles are bigger than you and they want to eat you....
    	All goes well until you find out your about to be hit with some ring that...
    	well its gonna vaporize you, so you need to garrison your troops quickly
    	before it passes. Unfortunately airborne troops cant be garrisoned, so flying
    	them backwards through the rings will help minimize the damage done to them.
    	All damaged flood have a good chance of being wiped out by it, and smaller
    	units dont even stand that chance. So make sure when a ring is passing over
    	that you at least damage some of them so that they wont make it through
    	the ring sweeps.
    	About 2 or three ring passes in you will obtain a pair of vultures that just
    	got out of refit and are free to be at your disposal. Use these like any 
    	other unit you have and wipe the deck, expecially the units you cant hit over
    	the side of the ships. 
    	After you successfully damage ALL the flood dens and the ring passes, you
    	will have completed the mission.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	Serina takes the ship out of the cock at full possible spee. unforutnately,
    	this is directly on course for the Covenant Warship you were persuing into
    	the planet. Even a quick Hard Starbord will not save you and the collision
    	is impressive. After the collision the covenant quickly charge weapons
    	and open fire on the Spirit who returns fire immediately. Forge is given
    	orders to stay on the hull and fight and Serina wonders why noone else
    	is freaked out by being INSIDE the planet.
    	Unfortunately the collision knocked the reactor core offlinepartially and
    	damaged the power core. your main charge is to save it and repair it. Send
    	Cyclops units in to fix it immediately and keep them coming. Only use a few
    	other units to protect them but the vast majority need to be concerned with
    	fixing that core otherwise the ship is going down.
    	About the best advice to complete this mission is to have the base rally 
    	for one of the airlocks set right next to the core and have that airlock make
    	nothing but cyclopses and make no other aditional units. Just have cyclopses
    	turning out of there like no tomorrow and focus all your attention on downing
    	the spirit aircraft before they have a chance to get to the deck. Hitting
    	Making sure that the cyclopses can do their job is imperative and can take
    	a painstaking amount of control if you let it but also if you have strategic
    	placed personel, you can make sure that not one covenent force even sets foot
    	on your deck... alive at least.
    	Another good benefit to taking out the spirits instead is that when you take
    	out 12 of them the skull place is revealed on the aft side of the ship. Use
    	one of your hawks to just run and retrieve it, its just the fastest craft
    	you have in your inventory so its quickest. The black box also is over on the
    	side of the ship. This time it is on the other side of the ship, not too hard
    	to find though.

    	Anders has been reaquired, now you need to find a way off this miserable
    	rock... or more perferably out of it.
    	Pinned down there trying to set up an LZ flood will swarm your location.
    	fight them off and head to the teleporter after the re-enforcements get
    	there and the pelican falls. Task your units on the teleporter and they will
    	be teleported to the platform below you. There is a new drop point where you
    	will be told to hold your forces. Just hunker down there and fight them off
    	until a base zone is located. Take your forces there to claim the base, and
    	if you want, a forerunner supply base is just to the north of it. Send some
    	troops to garrison that. Just to the south is a Flood den you will have to
    	take out periodically that spawns Flood Bombers.
    	Get a decent sized force and fend off from all the Banshee attacking you
    	from the air. Going back to your teleporter just north of it is a bridge
    	that leads to 3 other bases. You have to take all of these. The first base
    	will be the hardest to take because you will have reinforcements will be
    	coming from all directions.
    	After you take the first base, build up a significant force and take a troop
    	up the west ramp. You will find a Scarab that the enemy left alone that you
    	can aquire with a spartan. If you save it from the flood and take it for
    	yourself you can win the rest of the level no problem. Especially vs. the 
    	other scarab on this level, yes... there is another scarab on this level.
    	Take over three of the main bases and prep, that last base isnt going to
    	be easy to take on account of the scarab tank in your way. A good idea is to
    	take out the banshee launcher to the immediate west of the topmost base
    	After you have a large enough force, take them up either using the teleport
    	or pelicans to the top and invade. The Scarab tank is on the large set of 
    	stairs looking down and is surrounded by Hunter units. Use your leader power
    	and also use the scarab tank you aquired to take it out quickly. Also, if you

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	This mission is by far probably the most difficult mission of all, especially
    	on the harder difficulties. You have to take the massive FTL drive up the
    	slopes and deposit it to be exploded in the sun. THE SUN!!! yeah... to hot
    	for ya yet? Well its about to get hairy too so lets get it on! In true
    	Halo fashion the covenant and the flood are both fighting you this time and
    	actually have little regard for fighting eachother like they did in the
    	past few levels. They are concentrated on killing you.
    	Elephants are the only things that will pull the ftl drive, the only thing,
    	is DO NOT LET IT ROLL!!!! If you are on a slope and you have troops behind 
    	it and the elephant goes down it will destroy all your troops.
    	There are two enemy bases you have to worry about. Up the first ramp, and
    	at the top of the third ramp up. I would advise before even moving the FTL
    	drive to conquer both of these bases and hold them before continuing with 
    	the elephant up the ramps. Mainly cause if you lose the FTL drive, it will
    	kill all your troops and restart the mission, but also if it takes damage
    	it will begin to hamper your ability to see. So right before it gets 
    	critical damaged it will turn everything on the screen hinting it blue in
    	a bright flourecent color.
    	But strategy time, march up the first ramp to take the base, and build
    	up. I would recommend before taking the second base to have the ODST troops
    	because you can put someone right below the ledge and launch your troops up
    	to the third base and have them assualt and conquer the base quickly. Too
    	bad you cant use pelicans on the ground for support but the planet really
    	doesn't like you flying. It even states in one of the recoverable logs that
    	Capt. Cutter believes that the planet itself doesn't want things flying on
    	the surface and the dust clogged the engines like it was alive.
    	After taking the bases, have the Elephant pull the FTL drive up to the star
    	pad and place it there to end the mission.

     Mission  Walkthrough
    	Last mission but not the most difficult. Your only objective to matter is
    	activating the teleporter. There are 6 pads you have to activate, and only
    	a few forerunner markings to find out how to use them. First, you have to 
    	clear the area of everything but humans. We are the only ones who can
    	use the technology.
    	Each pad is linked, with which ones? Well each pad points to the pad opposite
    	itself so its easy to predict that they are linked with the ones acrossed
    	from eachother.
    	Activate all 3 sets of pads and you will complete the mission, and the game.
