This has to be one of the easiest levels in the entire game, its not a short level but its extremely easy due to the fact that you can pretty much run through the whole level, Even on legendary.

If you are going for the legend achievement this level will not give you any problems. As soon as you start go ahead and start running through the level, keep a covenant carbine handy as you might use it once or twice. Hit the shields on the pillars so it can open up and just keep running, if you start getting hit use your cloak by hitting X on your keyboard or the designated button on your controller, cloaking will make flood and even sentinels stop attacking you.

Once you get to the area with a big ass sentinel in the middle and flood attacking each other just cloak and hide at the bottom, no one will even bother you, once you have your cloak back go back up and hit one of the pillars, go back down then wait for your cloak to get back, rinse and repeat, you should have enough time to get all four pillars. Once you hit all the pillars, the flood will disappear and the big sentinel will explode.

Next is a little battle between flood and sentinels. Once again hide at the bottom and use your cloak until one of the doors open up and you can go through there, taking out some flood will probably help speed up the process. Once you're through its back to running. You can run through the whole level until you get to the area where you are outside.

This is the only area in which you actually have to fight, if you still have the carbine (Which you should) this should be no problem. You also get some elites to help you out, with the covenant carbine or Battle Riffle you can aim at around the middle section of the flood's body and it will be a "headshot" once you pass that area you will regroup with some more elites and the Elite Commander who happen to have some turrets, here you can either camp at the sniper tower in the middle or actually help out to speed the process. You will go through several waves of flood and after like about 5 or 6 attacks the level will end, the Commander cant die so eventually he will end up killing everyone but this will take forever. Make sure to kill the exploding blobs of flood first so that you don't have any reviving flood.

In total I finished this level in about 45 minutes when all other levels took me like 1 hour to 2. Finished with about 20 or less deaths when other levels I finish with 50+ deaths, mostly its all trial and error if youre stuck in one part just keep trying different approaches until you actually get there. If anyone has any questions post a comment or PM me and I will gladly help out with any tips or guides on how I beat this level. If you feel like I missed something important let me know so I can add it on to here. Thanks and Good Luck! smile
