BEST SPOT TO TAKE COVER: Immediately to your left at the start, behind an L-shaped white desk.

Said desk is in the top left of this picture:

If you stay in cover behind this position, your only problems should be enemies with flamethrowers and the YMIR Mech.

Dashboarding is NOT ENTIRELY NECESSARY. If the screen starts to go red/black - meaning you have been downed - immediately press start, then load the second autosave. You get one right before going into this room and the cutscene.

I used a maxed out Sentinel, and though any class should work, Power Armor, Cloak and Adrenaline Rush for Sentinels, Infiltrators and Soldiers respectively will help if you run a bit low on ammo (as well as surviving longer). Lower the difficulty if needed.

When you see a Pyro, kill him immediately. Remember you can save a little ammo by shooting the tank on his back, and damage any nearby enemies in the ensuing explosion.

If you start to run low on ammo, hopefully you've killed some enemies to your left beforehand. Activate Armor, Cloak or Adrenaline, then run on the left side of those pillars in front of you. They will offer a little bit of protection from enemy fire.

When the Mech comes, focus all your attention on him. While he will get almost as close as the Pyros who rush you, he never came around the front of that desk, and I was still safe. WHEN HE DIES, Sentinels need to have Armor activated, and anyone else needs to be as far away as you can without severely compromising yourself. Back up to the wall behind you and the explosion shouldn't kill you.
SENTINELS: DO NOT use Throw when the Mech's protection is gone. Both times I did, he went down for a few seconds but then glitched and was standing on the desk I you should be using for cover. If you got his protection down when he's farther away, more power to you.

I got this on Hardcore (because after beating Insanity, even Veteran feels a little too easy), and it shouldn't be too hard on the lower difficulties, especially Casual. Good luck.
