You are the Arbiter again. Hop into the back of the Spectre, manning the turret. Take out the Ghosts, enemy Wraith Tanks, and enemies as you make your way to the door in the mountain wall. Hop out of the Spectre and enter the door. Go forward, where you will notice that you have a pair of Hunters on your team. Go through the glass floor hallway, into the next room, and make your way up the side ramp to the level above. Go through the door at the top.

OBJECTIVE: Commandeer the Scarab

This is a cavern area. Make your way along the path killing Brutes and enemies as you go, then go through the next door. Keep going forward, killing as you go, until you get to a room with a ramp going up the middle, a weapons bin on either side of the ramp, and, if you go around either side, you'll see lots of purple detention cells. Use your Brute Shot or Grenades to destroy the purple jail cells so that prisoners come out and help you. Then, go through the main door and keep going through doors until you get outside to the Scarab (big spider walker). Run around killing (don't kill Sarge) the Brutes and when they're clear you'll get a cutscene of Sarge taking control of the Scarab. He tells you to hop into a Banshee to provide him with cover.

OBJECTIVE: Escort Johnson's Scarab to the Control Room

Wait for the Banshees to arrive then hop in. You'll notice a pink arrow will soon appear over the Scarab so that you know where it is. Fly through the gorge path and take out the Wraiths below. Continue along the gorge and kill off any snipers and/or Turret Gun operators. If your Banshee becomes damaged, you can fly back and grab another. Continue to fly out ahead of the Scarab to the main complex of buildings. Find the Covenant drop ship, with the three swivel guns on its belly, and take out the three guns. Then, watch out for the enemy Banshees. Take them out. When the Scarab gets near to the complex it'll blow open the main door for you. Fly there and hop out of your Banshee.

Delusions and Grandeur

OBJECTIVE: Enter the Control Room, and deal with Tartarus.

Go through the door and enter the complex. Go through the tunnels and through the door. In this room there are about 6 Brutes that you have to kill. Use your active camouflage and your Energy Sword to sneak up behind the Brutes. As you take out Brutes you're sure to acquire some Plasma Grenades. Use your camouflage and run up to a Brute and throw a grenade right on him then run away. Between your Energy Sword and the Plasma Grenades you will be able to take them out. If you don't have an Energy Sword then your best best is the Carbine. Make sure to get head shots. The Brutes may also drop a Brute Shot. Pick it up. After the Brutes you'll have to deal with some other elite. Take them out in the same way then go through the open door at the top. You'll get a cutscene of Tartarus, you, Sarge, the Commander, and the oracle. The oracle explains what Halo really is.

After the cutscene, kill the Brutes in front of you. Then approach the ledge. You'll see your allies jumping the gap. You can make the jump, but it's close, so simply wait for the rotating platform to move your way then get onto it and make the jump from the platform.

Tartarus will be running around. Simply stay out of the fray for a few minutes. Don't engage. After a bit, you'll hear Sarge say, "His shield is down." At that point you can start attacking Tartarus. Stay as far away from him as possible while doing so because one swing of his battle hammer and it's all over for you. Basically, just keep firing at him. He takes a while to kill. I used a few Plasma Grenades and dual-wield Brute Plasma Rifles. The gist is that his shield will drop, you'll get some good shots in on him and then his shield (blue aura around him) will regenerate. Then, you break down his shield again, get in a few good shots, and repeat. Eventually, he'll be killed.

He doesn't do a whole lot of platform jumping, but be aware that he may be below or above you. Also, use your camouflage to your advantage. If he is tracking you, turn on your camouflage and enter the center gravity lift to make a quick escape then, find him again and start shooting him.

When that's done, you'll get a final cutscene which sets up the premise for "Halo 3". You'll also get the credits. Congrats...now go play online.
