    This one isn't too bad to just run through on easy. I did it with 3-4 minutes to spare. I watched Naked Eli's run, but it is really heavy on tricks and walking around outside the level. If you're going for the Legendary speedrun achievement, it might be worth the time to learn all the tricks and glitches and exploit them. If you're running it on easy, the only parts that might give you trouble are the Hunters, the airlock sequences, and the "outdoor" part defending the Composer. For the Hunters, just use the sticky detonator, there's one in the weapon crate behind them. For the airlock sequences, try to look for the green button to toss out as many enemies as possible. You can't advance in these sections until every Covenant is dead. Once you're down to 4 or 5, Cortana will mark them on your HUD. The outside section just takes practice, try to kill the Wraiths as they are being dropped, and after that, taking out the Banshees should be your next priority, lastly clean up the foot soldiers. From there it's a cakewalk to the end of the level

    LORDOFDOOKIE69Make sure you leave about 2:30 for the ending scene in the elevator. I went over 30 seconds my first attempt because of that drawn out scene.

    Simply load up the level "Composer" from Halo 4's Campaign and follow my steps in the video to complete the level with a few minutes to spare (note that the end room needs approximately 2-3 minutes to end the level).

    I created this video to help:


    Hope this helps.
