>>Escape! From this point on, your goal is to simply escape. This task is easier said than done. One thing you should note, you do NOT have to kill the entire Flood. Ignoring them is usually a good thing, and taking them out is always optional. Sometimes it is better to take them out because there might be a particular item in a specific area that might be worth getting. So, for the time being, exit the door you entered earlier. Follow either of the ramps on the left and right side of the hallway as they both lead to the same area. Continue forward and exit the door to the front of the room. In this next room, you can see the Flood fighting the Covenant on the floor below. No time to watch the show, unless you want to fight. Remember, the way you came in this structure is not accessible right now, so your exit will be different. From here, there are two doors you can go through. One is on the top, on the right of the room you just entered. The other is on the bottom, directly under the door the right side of the room. Both lead to the same area, but the one on the top level is a bit easier. If you fall down below, however, you will have to take the lower door. (A)Taking the top door: Go through the door and follow the path through the small room. Soon you will come out in a much larger room with glass in the middle and walkways around the side. Find the door on the right side of the room, which leads into a small, square room. Go through the small, square room and enter the larger room. There is no need to jump down to the floor below. On the right, you can see Covenants blocking a door. There are two green symbols on the wall above. Take out the Covenants and go through the door. (B) Taking the lower door: Assuming you are on the lower floor in the room where you found the Covenant fighting the Flood, go through the door on the right side of the room. Through the door is the familiar square room with Covenant blood everywhere. Make your way through that room and into the next. Above you can see some glass walkways, and there is an exit to the right side of the room. Try to move fast because there are quite a few large Flood in this room. The large ones are much more powerful. The exit on the right leads you through a small square room with one unlocked door on the other side, and onto the lower level of a large room. As you enter the large room, there will be tons of Flood. The exit you need to take is on the upper right floor, but the only way up is to jump on some purple blocks on the other side of the room. These are located near the right corner. After jumping up the blocks, take out the Covenant to the right and enter the door they were blocking. There are two green symbols on the wall above the door. After going through the door, take a left. There will be two First Aid kits and a Shotgun next to the dead Marines. Pick up the First Aid kits if you need them, and be sure to get the Shotgun because it is one of the best weapons against the Flood. Trade the Shotgun for anything but the Assault Rifle. Both weapons are quite valuable against the Flood. Make your way down the hall to the left and go through the door. Make your way to the end of this next room and go through the door on the left. This next room is large and has a lift in the middle. This is one of the situations where it would be better to finish off the Flood in that room. After taking them out, stand on the lift and hit the switch. As you go down, you will notice tons of Covenants blood splattered on the walls. When you reach the bottom, bad news is the only thing that will accompany you. The larger Flood now use weapons. There is an Over Shield at the top of a pile of purple blocks. Climb the blocks to snag this priceless gift. Before leaving, you may wish to take out the Flood if they are causing too much trouble while chasing you. When you are ready, take the exit, which is to the left side of the area that you found the Over Shield. As you enter the next room, you will see a fight going on between the Flood and a few Marines. I was never able to save them. There is a bridge in the middle that keeps reappearing, but you can't cross it. To the right of the entrance, there are two Active Invisibility pick-ups. Pick one of them up and jump down to the flood below. Using a Shotgun while invisible will make this large group of Flood much easier to kill. There are Assault Rifles and a few Shotguns spread across the room where the Marines died. When you are ready, exit through the door on the left side of the room. This door leads to a small room with three doors. The doors on the left and right are dead end rooms that hold the Flood. Make your way to the door on the other side of the room. Go through it and into the large room filled with Flood. Above, you can see some walkways. You need to get up here, so climb the rubble in the far left corner of the room. On top of part of the rubble, you will find a First Aid kit and some ammo. Make your way up to the walkways above. Now that you are on the higher level of the room, head toward the entrance and go through the door. This door is actually right above the one you entered. Pass through the small, square room and into the large room. You might want to take out any Flood that are bugging you. To the right, you can see that bridge that keeps appearing. Since you are already on the other side, find the exit that is straight across from the door you just entered. If you accidentally jump down, you will have to go back through the door on the bottom floor. Go through the door and into the small, square room. Exit through the door on the opposite side and you will be on the upper level of a large room. Jump down and find the exit on the lower floor, to the left side of the room. This leads through another small, square room and into another large room, similar to the one where the Covenant was fighting the Flood. There are quite a few Floods in this room, but I would just run past them. There is an exit on the other side of the room, just across from the area in which you entered from. Go through this door and through the next small, square room. In the next room, you will confront yet another group of Flood. To the right of the entrance, you should see a few blocks. Jump up on them, to find a First Aid kit and quite a bit of ammo. You can also use these blocks to reach the upper level of this room. Jump up to the walkways above and take the upper door, which is on the left side of the room. Exit through the door and go through the small, square room to reach another large room. There are two ledges in this room, and if you hit the switch near the middle of the ledge you are on, you can activate a bridge. (If you fall off the ledge, you will have to go through the door on the bottom and into the room you were previously in.) Make your way across the bridge you just activated, and approach the door with three symbols above it. Large Flood will pour out of the doorway, so take them out. When no more come through, go through the door and into the large room. There is a lift in this room, and it actually goes up! Before taking it, however, be sure and eliminate the Flood so that they do not come up the lift with you. When you are ready, get on the lift and press the switch. Near the top, the drop ship pilot contacts you. When you reach the top, a large number of Marines are in the room ready to leave. They eagerly greet you! Follow them up the ramp and out into the swamp. Make your way forward and over the small hill, traveling between the trees. The Flood will soon confront you and the Marines. There are quite a few, so I would not worry about taking all of them out. Continue around and to the left as you follow the Marines. Be careful because the Flood will jump out of tree and ambush you along the way! Make your way down the hill and into the swamp area. When you reach the actual swamp water, you should be able to see red lights through the fog. These lights will lead to a structure up ahead. As you enter the water, quite a few Floods will swarm the area. After taking them out, make your way around to the other side of the structure in front of you. If there are quite a few Floods in the area, some blue, flying robots will help you take them out! ________________ -=[343 Guilty Spark]=- When you reach the other side of the structure, you meet a Monitor named 343 Guilty Spark. Its job is to prevent the Flood from spreading since they were recently released. It asks that you follow because it needs your help. Unfortunately, you must follow the Monitor for the game to progress. Prepare for The Library.
