All that remains of a classified military project to build a series of genetically enhanced super-soldiers. You are humanity's last and best hope against the Covenant - but you're woefully outmatched, and survival is not guaranteed. Captain Jacob Keyes - Twenty-six years into his military career, Captain Keyes commands respect as a keen strategist and inspirational leader of his men. He became a minor hero early in his career, when he led a small group of security troops against a covenant ambush of the colony ship Meriwether Lewis and held them off long enough for the ship to escape. His many decorations and years of combat experience against the Covenant made him a natural choice to command the Pillar of Autumn and its secret cargo. The Marines - A rugged and diverse assortment of soldiers, the Marines on the Pillar of Autumn are fighting a losing battle against the Covenant's superior weaponry and numbers. Under the leadership of Captain Keyes they continue to wage a furious struggle against the Covenant, even as their numbers dwindle. They're the best of the best-but they're only human. Cortana - Cortana is the highly advanced AI at the heart of the Pillar of Autumn. Her design allows her to be uploaded into an appropriately configured battle suit for safekeeping. She is capable of hacking into alien computer systems, and has used this skill to intercept Covenant communications during combat. She interprets this data to provide her caretakers with directional waypoints and the best available information about troop movement and strategy. The Grunts - Approximately 5' tall and relatively weak. Grunts tend to travel in packs and stick close to more powerful allies. Individually they are easy to defeat, but in groups they can overwhelm careless Marines. Their armor seems to house some sort of life-support mechanism. They are known to use a variety of weapons including plasma pistol, plasma rifle, and plasma grenades. The Jackals - With superior senses of sight, hearing, and smell. Jackals serve as scouts and assassins for the Covenant forces. They use plasma pistols and carry a strong energy shield to compensate for their well physical weakness; a well-positioned Jackal can hold his own against several Marines, though grenades are effective against them. They stand approximately 5'8" tall. The Elites - There are a few varieties of the Elite, but are all roughly 8'6" tall and incredibly strong. Their strength allows them to rely on brute force when necessary, but they're quite capable of brilliant battlefield tactics as well. Their natural resilience is augmented with full-body energy shielding which recharges when depleted. They wield plasma pistols, plasma rifles, grenades and needlers. The Hunters - Hunters stand 12' tall, though in their combat state they contract to approximately eight feet. Hunters fight with a fuel rod gun integrated directly into their armor. They carry an enormous and nearly-impervious metal shield made of an unknown alloy, which they sometimes us as a melee weapon. ========== 4) Weapons ========== ------------------ 4.1) Human Weapons ------------------ M9 HE-DP Grenade - The M9 high-explosive, dual-purpose grenade is a thrown fragmentation device. Use it to suppress or disable vehicles, except tanks. It can be thrown, rolled, bounced or ricocheted into places direct fire weapons can't reach. Increasing the angle of the throw to toss it farther, or to get it over obstacles. Be careful not to throw it too close to your own location. Clip Size - 1 Max Number of Clips - 4 Damage - 10/10 Accuracy - Medium Rate of Fire - Slow This is an effective tool, be careful where you use it though. Effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Hunters, and Flood. Weak Against none. Mediocre against Sentinals, mainly because its nearly impossible to hit them with a blast from one of these bad boys. M6D Pistol - This Pistol is a recoil-operated magazine-fed handgun. It is issued with a smart-linked scope capable of 2x magnification (press in the Right thumbstick). It fires 12.7mm semi-armor-piercing, high-explosive rounds. It can shoot either semi-automatic or automatic fire (pull and hold the Right trigger for automatic fire). Shot placement is very important. The only shot that gurantees immediate and total incapacitation is one roughly centered in the head, above a horizontal line passing through the ear opening and below the crown of the alien skull. Clip Size - 12 Shots Max Number of Clips - 11 Damage - 8/10 Accuracy - Short-Medium Rate of Fire - Medium-Fast This weapon is great for tight area combat. It is wielded by marines, so you know its strong, and you know where you can get one. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, and Elites. This weapon is weak against Hunters and Flood. This weapon is mediocre against Sentinals. MA5B Assault Rifle - This rifle is gas-operated and magazine-fed. It fires 7.62mm armor-piercing rounds. Rate of fire is limited by a soldiers ability to aim, fire and change magazines. Short, controlled bursts are more accurate than fully automatic fire. The MA5B's integrated computer displays rounds left in the magazine and the relative direction of the gas giant. Threshold, for point of reference. This feature is particularly useful for orienting you in areas where it's easy to get turned around and lose your sense of direction. Clip Size - 60 Rounds Max Number of Clips - 7 Damage - 7/10 Accuracy - Short-Medium Rate of Fire - Fast This weapon is good for tight combat areas, and fairly open combat areas. This is also wielded by marines, if you need one just seek out a marine. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, and Elites.This weapon is weak against Hunters. This weapon is mediocre against Flood and Sentinals. M90 Shotgun - The shotgun is a pump-action magazine-fed (dual tubular nondetachable type) weapon. It fires 8 gauge magnum (3.5") rounds. This weapon is very effective against targets at close range and may be used to engage several targets simultaneously at medium and long range. Clip Size - 12 Rounds Max Number of Clips - 6 Damage - 9/10 Accuracy - Short Rate of Fire - Medium This is a great weapon for tight areas, but not so effective in the open. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Flood, and Sentinals. This weapon is weak against Hunters. S2 AM Sniper Rifle - This rifle is a gas-operated magazine-fed weapon. It is issued with a smart-linked scope with two levels of magnifications (press in the Right thumbstick once for 2x. Press again for 10x, and once more to deactivate). Also, while still in zoom mode you can press the White Button to activate the light amplification. It fires 14.5mm armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding-sabot rounds. Warning: The 14.5x 114mm ADFSDS round is an anti-materiel munition. It can easily over-penetrate several armored soldiers. Be sure of what is on the other side of your target before firing. Clip Size - 4 Max Number of Clips - 7 Damage - 9/10 Accuracy - Long Rate of Fire - Medium This is a great weapon when you want to drop some enemies, quickly, undetected, and just for the plain fun of taking someone out from so far away. This weapon is meant for medium to long distances, not close up. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, and Elites. This weapon is weak against Flood and Hunters. This weapon is mediocre against Sentinals. M19 SSM Rocket Launcher - The M19 SSM is a man-portable and shoulder-fired rocket launcher. It has two major components, the launcher and the magazine. The magazine (the expendable part of the system) contains two 102mm shaped-charge, high-explosive rockets. IIt is designed for fast, easy detachment from the launcher. The launchder contains the sighting and fire control systems. Clip Size - 2 Rounds Max Number of Clips - 5 Damage - 10/10 Accuracy - Medium-Long Rate of Fire - Slow This is a great weapon to blow your enemies sky high. This is great to take down enemy vehicles, and large enemies, but dont blow it too close to yourself, or it will kill you. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Hunters, Flood, and Sentinals. M41 LAAG - The Warthog's M41 light anti-aircraft gun is a three-barreled, electric-powered, linkless, drum-fed weapon. It fires 450 to 550 12.7x99mm armor penetrating rounds per minute. Turrets traverse rate is 100 degrees per second and weapon elevation rate is 60 degrees per second. Recoil from sustained fire is prodigious and negatively impacts accuracy at long range. Clip Size - Infinite Max Number of Clips - Infinite Damage - 8/10 Accuracy - Medium-Long Rate of Fire - Fast This is good for any use. It can take out basically anything that is destructable. Effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Hunters, Flood, and Sentinals. --------------------- 4.2) Covenant Weapons --------------------- Plasma Rifle - This is a directed energy weapon. It is capable of either semiautomatic or automatic fire (pull and hold the Right trigger for automatic fire). Continuous rapid fire overheats the weapon-this in turn depletes the weapon's power core. We curently do not understand how to replace or re-charge a power core. Note: This weapon will deplete its energy source as you use it. It is wise to replace it as often as possible. Core Power Output: 100-150 Kv at 2-3 dA Clip Size - 100 energy points Max Number of Clips - 1 Damage - 8/10 Accuracy - Short-Medium Rate of Fire - 420 to 600 RD/MIN This weapon is the Covenant equivilant to the Human MA5B Assault Rifle. This basically crushes the enemy's energy shield if they have one. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, and Sentinals. This weapon is weak against Hunters. This weapon is mediocre against Flood. Plasma Pistol - This weapon is a semi-automatic directed energy weapon. If you pull and hold the Right trigger, the weapon may become over-charged; when the Right trigger is released the bolt is launched. After the over- charged bolt is launched the weapon temporarily stops funtioning as it dumps waste heat. Use of the over-charge capability rapidly depletes the weapon's power core. We currently do not undeerstand how to replace or re-charge a power core. Note: This weapon will deplete its energy source as you use it. It is wise to replace it as often as possible. Core Power Output: 100-1500 Kv at 2-3 dA Over Charge Power Output: 1.5 Mv at 2-3 dA Clip Size - 100 energy points Max Number of Clips - 1 Damage - 7/10 Accuracy - Short-Medium Rate of Fire - Medium-Fast This weapon is excellent for close combat, but is bad for distanced fighting. This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, and Sentinals. This weapon is weak against Hunters. This weapon is mediocre against Flood. Needler - Very little is known about this weapon other than that it is a magazie fed weapon capable of automatic fire. Its projectiles penetrate soft targets no matter what the angle of impact. They ricochet off of hard surfaces at oblique angles, however, and are always deflected by energy fields, the only exceptions to this being the shields generated by the MJOLNIR battle suit and the Elite's combat armor. The composition and energy signature of its projectile is unknown. The manner in which the projectiles home in on their target is also unknown. Clip Size - 20 Rounds Max Number of Clips - 5 clips Damage - 7/10 Accuracy - Medium Rate of Fire - Fast This weapon is good in close combat, and medium distances. It is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites and Sentinals. This weapon is weak against Hunters. This weapon is mediocre against Flood. Stationary Gun (Shade) - Although the Shade appears to be a light anti-vehicle weapon, the covenant uses it almost exclusively in an anti- infantry role. The operator sits directly behind the gun and an armored control suite, but relies entirely on infantry support for protection to the sides and rear. Clip Size - Infinite Max Number of Clips - Infinite Damage - 8/10 Accuracy - Medium-Long Rate of Fire - Fast This weapon is effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Hunters, and Flood. Mediocre against none. Weak against none. Plasma Grenade - This weapon is similar to our own hand grenade in that it is a thrown anti-infantry and anti-vehicle weapon. It has some kind of internal mechanism that allows it to distinguish between targets and background. For example, it will stick to a soldier or vehicle, but not a tree or wall. It has a three-second fuse that is activated after it sticks to a target or otherwise comes to a rest. Clip Size - 1 Max Number of Clips - 4 Damage - 10/10 Accuracy - Short-Medium Rate of Fire - Slow Activate. Stick to enemy. Run away. Boom. Simple as that. This bad boy is excellet. Toss it and it will stick. Effective against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, Hunters, Flood, and Sentinals. =========== 5) Vehicles =========== ---------------- Human Vehicles ---------------- M12 LRV - The M12 light reconnaissance vehicle, or Warthog, is the standard vehicle of the UEG armed forces. It is fast and maneuverable, but prone to rollovers during hard cornering. A three-barraled machine-gun is mounted in the rear of the vehicle. Armed passangers significantly increase the unit's anti-infantry capacity. Crew - 1 + 1 (plus 1 more in rear) Weight: 3.25 tons Armament: 12.7mm three-barreled machine-gun Speed - Fast Defense - Low M808B Scorpion MBT - The Scorpion Main Battle Tank is primarily an anti- vehicle weapons platform, but it also has very high anti-infantry capabilities. Its ceramic-titanium armor makes it nearly invulnerable to small arms fire, but its deep dead-zone, or the area within which fire from the tank's guns cannot hit targets, puts it at risk from enemy anti-tank infantry. Up to four soldiers may ride on (and fire from) the Scorpion's track pods. Riding on a tank is always hazardous and should be done only when advantages outweigh the risks. Crew: 2 (or 1 cyborg) Weight: 66 Tons Main Gun: 90mm HV (High Velocity) Secondary/Coaxial gun: 7.62mm AP-T (Armor Piercing, Tracer) Speed - Slow Defense - High ------------------- Covenant Vehicles ------------------- Ghost - The Ghost is the Covenant's standard reconnaissance and rapid attack vehicle. It is equipped with two of what are now accepted as the standard light vehicle mounted weapons: a directed energy weapon capable of projecting a bolt of super-heated plasma in the 100-150kW range. While the vehicle is fast and maneuverable, the driver is virtually unprotected. Crew: 1 Weight: 3.25 tons Armament: Two Plasma Cannons (100-250 kW range) Speed - Fast Defense - Low Banshee - The Banshee is the Covenant's standard ground assault aircraft. It is very fast, extremely maneuverable and capable of hovering. It has two weapon pods mounted to either side of the fuselage. Both of these pods contain light plasma cannon and a fuel rod cannon. Though small arms fire may disrupt or disable the pilot, only heavy weapons are capable of inflicting damage or destroying the vehicle. Crew: 1 Weight: 2.25 tons Armament: Two Plasma Cannons (100-150 kW range) Secondary Weapon: Two Feul Rod Cannons Speed - Very Fast Defense - Medium ============== 6) Walkthrough ============== Difficulties: Easy - Your foes cower and fall before your unstoppable onslaught, yet final victory will leave you wanting more. Normal - Hordes of aliens vie to destroy you, but nerves of steel and a quick trigger finger give you a solid chance to prevail. Heroic - Your enemies are as numerous as they are ferocious; their attacks are devastating. Survival is not guaranteed. Legendary - You face opponents who have never known defeat, who laugh in alien tongues at your efforts to survive. This is suicide. --------------------- 6.1) Pillar of Autumn --------------------- *************** 6.1.1) Reveille *************** Objectives: -Complete Training Diagnostic -Find Captain Keyes on the Bridge Once this level starts just follow the in game instructions and you will be on your way through character set-up.
