I found this one pretty tough especially with the awful controls on my Nokia Lumia.. here's what I did though and got it 2nd try. First try I ran straight into a suicide grunt... had a bad day.

I bought Overshield and Damage boosters.
Then, when the mission started, I cleared out the first groups of enemies, traded both my starting weapons for the Assault Rifle and the Battle Rifle. (With the center portal as the guide, Assault Rifle is at about 7-8 o'clock and the Battle Rifle is at about 1-2 o'clock)
From there on, almost none of the enemies are overwhelmingly unlimited. I took my time carefully, popping the Overshield and running away whenever things got too troublesome.
Watch out for the Knights about half-way through, they are the biggest threat, especially if you get swarmed by Crawlers at the same time!
Just be careful, defend each area by standing behind the engineer as much as possible and just holding down the fire button. For the top left and bottom areas I used the Assault Rifle because I could refill it right away after, and the top right area I defended with the Battle Rifle.
You'll have to go to each area I think 3 times, and then you reach a point where you have to activate the 3 triggers on the portal. At this point, stay back, and kill everything carefully! They don't spawn unlimited to a point, so clear out as much as you can, use an overshield, and try to activate the portal triggers. I don't think they can activate if there are enemies nearby, so try to clear the immediate area as well.

Get rid of the Knights before you do that! I don't think they respawn or respawn too slowly to make a difference once you wipe them out the first time.

Then get to safety until the last thing is ready to activate, use an overshield, and activate it! You can't get hit once you start the activation sequence and it ends the mission.

Hope this helps someone! smile
