OBJECTIVE: Clear the landing zone for the Pelicans.
You are back to being Master Chief. You begin armed with a Battle Rifle and a Rocket Launcher. If you haven't used one before, the Rocket Launcher can lock onto targets. To do so, put the reticle over an enemy and if you get the message under your reticle that says, "To Lock-On Hold the R-Trigger," well, do so. You can't choose to lock-on, it only happens in certain circumstances. Use it to your advantage when you get the option.
Work your way up the mountain path, following your fellow Marines. Clear the ruins of enemies and an enemy drop ship will fly in and drop in enemies. Clear the area of the new enemies. Watch as Pelicans land. They'll drop a Warthog and some reinforcements. Hop into the Warthog as the Turret Gunner and you'll be driven up the dirt path along the right side of the ruins.
OBJECTIVE: Extend the bridge, and cross the chasm.

Shoot any enemies as you go. The driver will stop at strategic look-out points to give you a look of the area. You'll be driven down to a tower structure, where the controls to the bridge are located. Hop out of the Warthog and enter the structure. Go around to the right and you'll find a hologram of a Prophet. Go up to the control switch and activate it by holding "X". You'll see the bridge extend below you.
OBJECTIVE: Push through the Covenant-held ruins.
Wait for the bridge to deploy and then exit out and hop into the Scorpion Tank. Blow up the Wraith Tanks on the other side then enter the yellow-lighted tunnel on the right. Use the upper ramp toward the waterfall. Follow the path while blowing up the many Ghosts.
You Break it, You Buy it.
You will eventually emerge upon an open courtyard surrounded by ruins. Go down to the courtyard and blast the enemies. Enter the ruins where all of the enemies were and take out the Ghosts and enemies inside. Continue down through the ruins and you'll come out on another courtyard/complex area. This one has six blue energy shields on the upper level of the central structure.
This area is basically just a square with the structure in the middle. You need to clear the area. You can continue to do this in the Scorpion or you can hop out and do it on foot or find a suitable Ghost. Once it's clear, a Pelican will come in and drop off weapons and ammo. Gear up (I'm a fan of the SMG and the Sniper Rifle, but do what you want) then head past the six blue energy shields.
You'll be attacked. Fight them off then enter the center of the ruins structure. Fight off the many enemies in the grassy courtyard being sure to watch our for snipers along the upper levels. From the hologram of a Prophet, follow the dirt path up the ramp and through the crevasse opening to the left. Work your way up the hill and look to your left to find a bright gray cave entrance.
Off the Rock, Through the Bush, Nothing but Jackal
At the bottom, enter the tunnel/cave for some Frag Grenades. Then, make your way past the cave and go up the path, fight some enemies, then enter another tunnel on the left. Follow the gorge/tunnel and you'll emerge upon towers overlooking a lake.
OBJECTIVE: Reach the towers in the lake.
Jump down to the bridge leading down to the towers. Go through the doors. You'll be in a foyer with another hologram of a prophet. Kill the Honor Guards and grab one of their Energy Swords. Cutscene.
OBJECTIVE: Make your way through the first set of towers.
After the cutscene, clear the foyer of the new enemies. You will have some Marine support with you now. When the room is clear, go up the ramp and through the door on the right. Follow the hall and fight the enemies. You'll be outside. Watch out for the purple beam snipers all around you. Go forward along the path and cross over the second (non-broken) bridge to the next tower.
Continue following your Marines and you'll soon be back inside, in a new tower. In this central room, kill the enemies, then go through the next open door. You will be outside again. Watch out for snipers and make your way toward the enemies situated in the central area between the two towers. After you clear them out, a Covenant drop ship will fly in and drop off a pair of Hunters. Hide while the ship is in the area because its guns can kill you quickly. For the Hunters, use the heaviest weapons that you have on them and be sure to use grenades. Be patient. They will take a while to kill. Focus in on killing one, then the other. Use headshots as much as possible.
After that fight, a Pelican will fly in and drop off some reinforcements and some weapons and ammo. Restock. Next, new enemies will arrive on the Gondola (large transport tram). Eliminate them then get onto the Gondola. Go up to the control switch and hold "X" to activate the Gondola.
OBJECTIVE: Ride the Gondola to the far towers.
OBJECTIVE: Pass through the submerged structures.
Now inside, kill off the enemies then wait for the elevator to rise up. Inside the elevator are more enemies. Kill them off then enter the elevator and hold "X" to activate the elevator. You'll ride the elevator underwater then back up another structure. Exit the elevator and head up the ramp.
Enter the large submerged corridor (aka, underwater tunnel) and kill off the enemies. Be sure to look under the ramps for ammo and grenades. Proceed up the ramp at the far end of the corridor. Go either right or left, then up the ramps following the Marines. You'll soon be in a large blue-hued room with a hologram of a Prophet. There are two Honor Guards (one with an Energy Sword). Kill them and grab the sword. Kill off the remaining enemies in this room then head down to ground level. Egad! A pair of Hunters. Use patience and head shots to kill them one at a time.
Head to the far end of this room, on the second level, you'll find two doors which will open when you near them (or, on the ground floor, go to the far end and go through the door that opens there). Go through either one, move down the ramps, kill the enemies and enter the next large submerged corridor (water tunnel). There are a bunch of enemies here, some using invisible camouflage. One has an Energy Sword. Be careful when dealing with him. Go up the ramp on the far side of the corridor.
You will come to another elevator. Enter and use "X" to activate it. You will learn about the Prophet, Regret, and his hasty actions. Same thing as before; you'll go underwater and then up another shaft. Exit out of the elevator and kill the two Honor Guards with your Energy Sword. Work you way down the ramp, past the hologram Prophet, to the outside.
OBJECTIVE: Reach the main temple.
Kill off the flying enemies then make your way up the path. Kill the enemies here. A Pelican will fly in and drop off weapons and ammo for you. Stock up the work your way along the stone path. Soon, a Covenant drop ship will fly in and drop off more enemies for you. Head toward them, kill them, then head to the Gondola that flies to the Main Temple. Near and on the Gondola are more weapons and ammo, including a Rocket Launcher. Restock and activate the Gondola.
As you ride the Gondola, a few Banshees will attack you. Use the Rocket Launcher and lock-on (wait for the message to say "Lock-On" and then hold the R-Trigger until you get a lock) then blast the Banshees. Soon, another Gondola will pull up alongside. Eliminate the enemies on the other Gondola and yours will start moving again. As you approach the Main Temple, use your Rocket Launcher to clear the platform. If there are any remaining enemies, take care of them. When it's clear, you'll get a cutscene.
Sorry, Were You in the Middle of Something?
OBJECTIVE: Kill the Prophet of Regret, and escape.

Go up the ramp and enter the Main Temple. Fight the enemies, including the two Honor Guards with the Energy Swords. Use either the lower or upper ramp to enter the central room of the Main Temple. I prefer the upper so that you can fire down on enemies. Once you get into the nitty-gritty of the main room, you'll have many Honor Guards to deal with.
In the middle of this room, you'll see the Prophet of Regret. You have to kill the Prophet. Clear out any enemies that you can using the Energy Sword, then, while paying attention to your Radar to make sure you aren't surprised, attack the Prophet. The best way to attack the prophet is to hold "X" while near his pod to board his pod. While on the pod, use the "B" button to punch him repeatedly until he disappears. When he reappears, repeat this process. If you want, you can also attack him with the Energy Sword. I boarded and punched him twice, then used a final slash of the Energy Sword to finish him off. No matter how many other enemies are left when you kill the Prophet, you'll get a cutscene and this level will be over.
