This is a guide if you re going at it Solo. (added a video since there wasnt one)
* Off the spawn grab the drop shield.
* Kill covenant until Gold elites start spawning
* Get a sword and use just swords for the remainder of the mission
* Treat this mission as if its a Doom game. Always keep moving and dealing damage. Keep meleeing even if your sword is depleted (until you pick up another one)
* If a sword elite is present, you kill him FIRST
* If your shields are below 60%, dont risk it, pop a bubble and let them rush you
* Dont forget to clear the plasma nades on the ground. I almost died halfway into the mission.
* Keep a concussion as a secondary so that you dont accidentaly pick them up instead of swords.
* The initial spawn area is elevated, therefore imho a pretty good area to stay and fight. Just clear any explosives first.
With a little bit of patience you will complete this in about an hour. I took small breaks during the run. Pausing was a big plus.
