    Playing on Easy, this is a fairly simple one.
    Start by grabbing grabbing the Ghost to your left. You can use this Ghost to rush all the way to the Gondola. The ghost will fit inside the buildings where they want you to get out and walk. I would advise getting out of the Ghost once you get to all the UNSC crates blocking the path, as there is a Ghost just outside by the Scorpion.
    You should be able to make it to the Gondola in less than 5 minutes. From there there isn't much you can do other than wait for the Gondola to get there.
    While it might seem weird to tell you to be careful on Easy, I did still get 1 shotted by a sword flood one run when I wasn't paying attention. The checkpoints are pretty slow on the Gondola, so dying can set you back a minute or more.
    If you look into the tube at the bottom, or are standing in it, enemies won't spawn it in. I don't know if you have to be facing down the tube if you're inside it, but I'd recommend it to be safe.
    Other than playing on Easy and not dying, that's about all I can say for this level.

    From EggBigot - Just to add with the ghost run, once you're on the Gondola there is a grenade jump you can do to put yourself above all the fighting. I'm sure you can find it on youtube. It will help with their legendary run.

    Flint HisanThe grenade jump that @EggBigot is talking about is at the back of the gondola, I used the Spudnik skull for help, but it should be to be done without it.

    ThurminatorVIIAs per this video (NakedEli, not mine), you don't need a grenade or sputnik to make this jump on the gondola. Got it on my first try. Just got par time in 10:01 using the above guide and Eli's skip method.
