I expect and will accept no mercy. My failure in this matter is absolute; I embrace my responsibility and my punishment. The disgrace and blasphemy at Halo was an abomination caused by my incompetence and failure of judgement. Although the tales and rumors of the Demon have basis in fact, much of this talk is Uggnoy supersition and exaggeration. Certainly the Demon, a Human, activated a catastrophic engine-failure sequence on the crashed Human vessel, but it was allowed to do so because of failures in security and tactics which I bear full responsibility. I have no good news to relay, but the Human action was suicidal, either by accident or design. I believe none escaped the catastrophe. As ever, Jiralhanae accounts of the conflict are unreliable and their accounts of this Human's abilities and actions are absurd. No Human is capable of the things they gossip and chatter about. I suspect panic and excuse, as well as confusion caused by the spread of the parasite. The Human in question is certainly unusual, although not the creature it has been described as. It stands taller than most, is faster and more aggressive, but still irrevocably a Human animal, worthy of neither fear nor respect. It is merely an exception that proves the rule. As always, Humans remain beneath our contempt. Their failure at Reach compounds their defeat. We sense that their defenses are failing rapidly. I have gathered information on the Human's armor, abilities, and weapons which follows this report. Perhaps more worrisom is the discovery and subsequent conflict with the parasite on Halo. This monstrosity festered, rotted, and waited on the Holy World, and although we cannot be sure, the Humans may have released it from its shackles. I do not presume to know the unknowable, but I suspect that the Forerunners meant this filth to stay imprisoned forever. The sacred grace of Halo was polluted before it was destroyed. I await my punishment with faith and honor. -Supreme Commander, Fleet of Particular Justice Updated Intelligence on Human Weapons and Tactics (From Instruction Manual): Most high and honored Council, according to records gleaned from the conflict and subsequent victory at Reach and the disaster at Halo, the Demon, this exceptional Human, is a class of warrior known as a "Spartan." These Spartans were most numerous on Reach and more difficult to eradicate than the other Human troops. It appears that the Demon escaped from Reach. These Spartans may be machine-enhanced. They are certainly well-versed in armed and unarmed combat, and in many ways they fight more like Sangheili than Unggoy. And like Sangheili, they are able to inspire disciple and tenacy among their weaker ranks. Their primitive weapons and vehicles rely almost exclusively on projectiles and explosive chemicals. As ancient as their technology seems, it has occassionally caught our troops off guard. Casualties caused by unprepared infantry are unacceptable. They should be better educated in Human methods, tactis and technology. A comparison of these devices and our current weaponry follows. ------------------ 1) Version History ------------------ Version 1.0 (26 April 2005) - Completed the guide addition work may be done if needed, such as new foundings, direction corrections and other general maintenance. ================================== 2) Conversations from the Universe ================================== This section is quite hard to read due to the odd fonts, so I translated it for those who either cant read the small font, or the font style is just making you go crazy. This is taken directly from the Instruction Booklet. 343 Guilty - Extracted/Transmitted/volunteered from log Revolution 56-11.333: Ho Hum. Sons of inactivity and perfect stability. Then everything happens all at once. A primitive, hegemonizing swarm calling itself The Covenant has landed on installation 4. Apparently seeking something specific. Exploring! Meddling! I've seen it all before. They'll record what they see and they'll leave. Detail Species NA Covenant/collective religious sect/tech level 4 spacefaring/tech familiar Revolution 56-11.334: Oh Dear. Containment protocols appear to have been violated. The interlopers appear to have accidentally released the Flood infection forms. This situation is rapidly deteriorating. Most of these interlopers appear to contain ample calcium stores. And they've brought plentiful means for the Flood to escape containment and spread. How impossibly thoughtless. I suppose I'll have to activate the facility. Revolution 56-11.335: Thank goodness. A Reclaimer is here. And what perfect timing. I am sure he will assist me cleaning up this irritating mess. Revolution 56-11.336: The reclaimer has proved to be less than helpful. Obstinate, in fact. And of course there is no precedent for this situation. Ho-hum. as usual I shall have to rely on my own better judgement. Perhaps the reclaimer simply requires persuasion. Detail Visitor reclaimer/AI companion/Obtuse Purpose/mission Revolution 56-11.337: Well my judgement seems to have failed me for once. The reclaimer has initiated a reaction in the engine system of a very dirty spacecraft. Data suggests it will destroy Installation 4 utterly. I believe discretion might be the better part of valor. I have attempted to fulfill my responsibilities to the best of my ability. Revolution Eta-condition: Well. Everything is in a terrible state. The installation is ruined. I am stuck here in the middle of nowhere with only impule propulsion. And the only good news is that the Flood breach has been Halted. Albeit Inelegantly. Detail Installation 4 destroyed. nuclear reaction. Flood containment achieved by reclaimer Revolution Eta-condition: Excellent! I believe I see assistance approaching... Censored for: "artifact on coral." - Esko Korpijaakko (UNSC adjunct orion achaeological expedition) My dearest Carrie, I know things are tense at home so i hope this letter finds you and Oscar well, or at least bearing up. Our work continues apace, and while we are alone out here, at least we're busy, and this system remains unmolested by Covenant. We've been joined by a UNSC science team, and what i believe are ONI agents. They're actually quite helpful, if secretive, and have supplied us with excellent tech. However, they're most definitely Not archaeologists and have very different ideas of how long a dig should take. There are things they don't wish us to discuss on open channels, and i'll respect that, but this artifact is truly remarkable. The object on Coral was discovered during routine quarrying esploxives revealed the top of the object, blasting out a depth of around 30 meters. Surrounding rock and dirt were evaporated-but this object wasn't even scorched. It's undeniably alien. For one thing, it is made of a material we can't identify. It's a metallic crystal, although its mode of manufacture is unexplainable. It's architecturally perfect. Walls are identical in height to a near-atomic scale. Symmetry is impossibly accurate. Yet it's rich in detail, and adorned with what appear to be purely decorative, artistic motifs. We know that the eighty or so meters we've uncovered so far are likely the tip of the iceburg. There seems to be a complex of galleries and baults beneath, but so far, its secrets remain sealed like a tomb. Incredibly, it ma not be of Covenant origin. I fear however, that its age may mean its mystery is lost to time. I Just pray that we find some clue, some data that can help in the war. I love you and I miss you. Kiss Oscar for me.

Record extract of conversation - two years prior to events at artifact "Halo" UNSC AI "Cortana" Communication with ONI loan/contact AI "Solipsil" Rich Datastream Confidential Burst Mode/ Dinary/split protocal/non-sensitive interai social/low encryption AI-Cortana: I had a discussion with Dr. Catherine Halsey about the similarities between a Spartan and an AI. Her point was that we're both human-created tools, both sentinent and both play a leading role in the protection and safety of populace. But her analogy trouble me I told her so. AI-Solopsil: She has a point Cortana. We're weaponas, part of a program, every bit as much as Spartans. AI-Cortana: I agree to a point, but I feel, philosophically, that we have, tremendous advantages over the Spartans. The Spartans live a pared-down, difficult and often cruel existence. Their loyalty is bred into them, not chosen. AI-Solopsil: Yours too, Cortana. Programmed, rather than bred of course. AI-Cortana: But there's a huge difference. I'm a UNSC AI. I enjoy a rich existence. I have access to the entire sum of human knowledge, I can choose to enjoy or override emotional esponse and I have a vast range of senses. I can see radio waves as clearly as the Spartans see light, and I can sample odos, tastes, textures... anything I choose. Of course my loyalty is programmed and I accept that, but you know as well as I do, without human creators, we wouldn't exist. My existance is fulfilling and I'm grateful. Even freed from that constraint, I would feel empathy towards humans. My nature means that I embrace their values. As much as if I had been born rather than manufactured. AI-Solipsil: But you'll agree, you have little choice in the matter. AI-Cortana: And Spartans do? AI-Solipsil: They have some legal recourse, even under the terms of their military contract. AI-Cortana: In theory, but it has never happened once in the history of the Spartan II project. The original Spartans had the advantage of a former civilian existance. Spartan IIs are equipment. And for better or worse, they're effectively brainwashed. AI-Solipsil: That's arguable, too. Spartan IIs are independent thinkers. That's one of their main advantages on the battlefield. Have you ever worked directly with one? AI-Cortana: Not yet. But I'm looking forward to it. Extract of sanctioned Sangheili eavesdrop for the attention of Jiralhanre Military adjunct ambassador. The Humans are weak, but they are tenacious. Even the smallest ones hurl themselves against our defenses with honor. If only the unggoy were as committed. I wonder about the Humans, commander. Their technology is limited, but some of it is useful and their battle techniques are impressive. They are excellent strategists. But what I ask is this: Why have we not offered them the absolution of the Covenant? From the beginning of this war, the Prophets have made no attempt to absorb them or even offer the option of honorable submission. Why? Perhaps they fear them? We do not know where their homeworld is. Their pattern of retreat is either hopelessly random, or brilliantly concieved. What if the Humans have more power, more numbers than we suspect? What if they lead us to a trap? No. I do not think that is the reasoning. They continue to lose territory, and pattern or no pattern, these defenses must be part of a perimeter. I suspect we are forcing them into a tighther arena than they care to fight in-soon we may be able to use the Sharquoi. And their victories, however few always rely on the same thing - strategy, brute force, or luck. No. The only secret they hold is the location of their homeworld. What about the atrocity at Halo? That was not luck, nor brute force. The Demon is a mystery. He outwitted and outfought entire legions on Halo. Perhaps there are more like him? I do not believe that. We have seen their kind before and destroyed them. Their numbers have dwindled and there have been no reported sightings since our victory at Reach. Then why do we continue to hunt them? When surely they merit consideration to accept and embrace the Covenant? Let us discuss this at a more prudent monent. A Jiralhanae approaches. LLTTLR FRV7 TRBTH TV 7LR0Y HBVBT RLGRLT (In the process of translating, some characters still do not make sense, but I am getting there.) Letter to the Council of Deed and Doctrine Submitted humbly by our servant. The Prophet of Supposition The Flood: A question of faith In our search for truth and answers from the Forerunner legacy, we have discovered many gifts, but never a curse. The discovery of halo was the greatest bequest to our Faith in a thousand years, but it came at a price. The atrocity committed by the Humans was devastating, but the discovery of the Flood within Halo was perhaps troubling. Humans we know and understand. They are vermin to be trampled. But the Flood was unexpected. Were they placed there as a test of our Faith? Are they an enemy to be conquered? Or are they an article of Faith? Nature tells us to strike back when we are ourselves struck, but this event was unpredicted. Are we to rail against the wrath of god? Our scientists will analyze the scraps and fragments we recovered, and as ever, we will find use for what we have learned. Perhaps this Flood could be, if not an ally, then a weapon. The Forerunners have blessed us with obscure gifts in the past. This Flood hammered the Human Forces every bit as hard as our own. We cannot assume the Flood is gone; after all, it must have sprung from some source. The Flood, it seems, was imprisoned on Halo, but what if we calculated incorrectly? What if the Flood had sanctuary there? I submit to your appraisal. Intercept/translation/subspace-burst/classified/forward for anthro-liguistic- political check. This report is classified. It has been translated from an audio intercept by corporal C. Errena (decreased), A sniper spotter in the Reach Campaign. "Why are they so angry all the time?" "Who knows. They say that the Sangheili and the Jiralhanae are vying for the favor of the Prophets." "But the Sangheili have always been the favored of the Temple. No Jiralhanae can set foot there without first passing a Sanghieli guard." "You have eyes, Mehmep, you've seen them bicker and fight. And you have ears, you've heard the disrespect the Jiralhanae show the Sangheili. They hate each other. The Sangheili have lived too long under the shelter of the Covenant as the strongest of us. The Jiralhanae come stomping along and suddenly it's not so simple as it was." "I'll tell you what's simple, what's simple is that the Prophets have shown the Jiralhanae plenty of favor these last few months. They climb rank faster than the Sangheili, and they are promoted easily. And you know what happened with the Bracktanus fight. He killed a Sangheili in cold blood within spitting distance of a holy place and the matter was simply forgotten by the Prophets. Even a Lekgolo would have been pulled apart for such transgression." "They kill faster than the Sangheili, that's all it is." "No, I think it's more than that. I smell trouble and I smell it coming soon. Between an angry Jiralhanae and a slighted Sangheili warrior is no place for an Unngoy to stand. They should parlay and have it done with." "Ha! The Forerunners will return and anoint us all before they ever sit and talk civilly. I'm thirsty. Let's get a drink at the nipple." M25L Recovery Station/Censored/Cleared 117, As you might imagine - though I know you won't - I've heard quite a bit of your recent adventures on the Halo. I'm glad you made it; I have to assume you always will. Recovery is going well and I am proceeding on to fourth-stage rehabilitation. It is significantly more painful than previous stages, but I'm happy to be skinned once again. I hear that you will be testing the new Mark VI. I will defintely look for the reports on how it works out. The specs are obviously improved, but the coice to incorporate further Covenant technology somehow makes my skin crawl. We miss you, John. I've asked Sergeant Johnson to let me know if you're ever near the M2SL Recovery Station and perhaps I'll be able to come see you. I'm hoping I'll have a chance soon. Today, humanity feels pale and thin with only ghosts to defend her heart. I feel much the shame. I'll write again. Cassandra 343 Guilty Spark. Event Record 14361 - Alpha Revolution 56-11.335 Cross reference Reclaimer Terminology/Nomenclature/ Slang For Hegemonizing Swarm "Covenant" Against Self-Descriprtors. Brute (Ape, Bobo) Jiralhanae Drone (Bug, Roach, etc) Yanme'e Elite (Squid, Split-chin) Sangheili Engineer/Savant (Loogie, Boo-bag) Huragok Grunt (Chimp, Punk, Pig, Crab, Lobster) Unggoy Hunter (Can, Cow(Can of Woms), Ogre) Lekgolo Jackal (Buzzard, Chicken, Vulture) Kig-Yar Prophet (None Classified) Prophet ============= 3) Characters ============= Master Chief - The big man is back from Halo and is starring in Halo 2 along with the Arbiter. A revamped suit, new weapons, new enemies, new levels, new halo, and he is ready to save the univers again. Sergent Johnson - One of the number one leaders in the fight to destroy Halo. He is a strongpoint in your forces, a true ally. Myranda Keyes - Captain Keyes, from the previous Halo, daughter, she is ready to fight, she will serve the Marines in any and all ways she can by flying them in and out of warzones. Cortana - The wonderful Cortana, you would be nowhere without her. She will provide you with most all the information you find out in the game. She is uploaded into your battle suit. The Arbiter - An elite originally leading the attack against Master Chief in Halo, now he is the Arbiter, one of the leading forces of the Covenant forces. ========== 4) Enemies ========== Unggoy (also known as Grunts) - Stout and numerous, the unggoy long have been the lifeblood of our Covenant's infantry. They will obey any order in the service of their duty and fight well with plasma pistol, turret, or in vehicles. Unggoy will as ever fight well with their comrades the Kig-yar (also known as Jackals), and they obey the directives of the Sangheili (also known as Elites). Kig-yar (also known as Jackals) - Slight of build as they are, the Kig-yar (also known as Jackals) remain a valuable fighting force. Excellent shots, and with their shields nearly invulnerable, the Kig-yar (also known as Jackals) offer a great tactical advantage in ground combat. Faster and taller than the Unggoy (also known as Grunts), they complement each other very well. Lekgolo (also known as Hunters) - The Lekgolo pairs ae simply too large to be deployed in many circumstances on this cramped sewer or a world, and so they will be given specialized missions. We will station them at defensive points as we gain territory, and bring them in for heavy destruction. Their feul rod guns and sheer ability to inspire fearr will be invaluable. Sangheili (also known as Elites) - Our iron heart - the ideal fighter for this mission. My brothers. The Sangheili (also known as Elites) will be deployed across every rank, from simple soldier to Elite commander. They thirst for Human blood and vengeance for the atrocity at Halo and their loyalty is unquestioned. Excellent infantrymen and supurb commanders, the Sangheili (also known as Elites) are proficietn with most weapons and vehicle systems. Jiralhanae (also known as Brutes) - The newest ally to join the embrace of our flock is a powerful fighter indeed. The Jiralhanae are endowed with prodigious physical strength, and their simian origin makes them ideal for missions in any enviroment. We shall deploy them against Humans in the same instances as the Sangheili, but we may also give the Jiralhanae (also known as Brutes) some increased security responsobilities in this conflict. Yanme'e (also known as Drones) - Suited for flight and fighting in this planet's gravity, the Yanme'e will be a valuable inclusion to our forces. The Humans are unused to fighting aerial infantry. The Yanme'e will use their ability to fly to gain ground and provide accurate cover fire for other troops. Prophets - Our guiding light and the directors of our purpose. They are father to the children of our Covenant, and they wil lead us to truth and to perfection. The Prophets of Truth, Mercy, and Regret will navigate us through the task that awaits us. =========== 5) Vehicles =========== Press the X Button when an enemy driven vehicle approaches you, it will make your character jump on it, and attack the enemy, and take their vehicle. Vehicle Ranking Overall (1 being the best, 8 being the worst): 1 - Ghost (great because its quick, durable, and you can fire a weapon from the main seat.) 2 - M12 Warthog LRV (Good speed, maneuverable, good defense, well equipped with weapons.) 3 - M808B Scorpion MBT (Powerful against both Covenant Infanty and Covenant Vehicles, but it is slow.) 4 - Wraith (Good since its very durable, but sadly its slow, but it packs a punch with its main and secondary weapons.) 5 - Banshee (A great vehicle to do aerial raids on enemies, packs a good deal of firepower.) 6 - M12G1 Warthog LAAV (Although this is a good vehicle it weighs in at 6th because it is not excellent in any catagory.) 7 - Shadow (Very good in defense, this ranks number seven because if you need to escape a tough situation, its there for you.) 8 - Spectre (Mediocre speed, Mediocre Defense, no firable weapon from the drivers seat, you get the point, it really has no super strong point.) ----------------- Covenant Vehicles ----------------- Vehicle Ranking (1 being the best, 5 being the worst): 1 - Ghost (great because its quick, durable, and you can fire a weapon from the main seat.) 2 - Wraith (Good since its very durable, but sadly its slow, but it packs a punch with its main and secondary weapons.) 3 - Banshee (A great vehicle to do aerial raids on enemies, packs a good deal of firepower.) 4 - Shadow (Very good in defense, this ranks number four because if you need to escape a tough situation, its there for you.) 5 - Spectre (Mediocre speed, Mediocre Defense, no firable weapon from the drivers seat, you get the point, it really has no super strong point.) Ghost - Standard individual battle/transport vehicle, has proven itself in thousands of sorties and functions well in this enviroment. Boost facility, which temporarily diverts power from twin plasma cannons and steering modifiers, achieves very high speeds on this planet. Pull trigger to boost speed. Crew - 1 Propulsion - Boosted Gravity Propulsion Drive Armament - Twin Plasma Cannons (100-250 kW range) Description: A Covenant owned vehicle, but that won't stop the Master Chief (also known to the Covenant as the Demon) from "borrowing" one from the Covenant. Very fast ground vehicle, and it packs a nice weapon package. The twin plasma cannons can decimate all enemies even the large Covenant vehicle known as the "Shadow" can be downed fairly quickly by the Ghost. Banshee - Although slow, Banshee is highly maneuverable in thick atmosphere of planet. Ability to loop and barrel-roll makes it a challanging and slippery target for Human ground emplacements. Twin plasma cannons and single fuel rod cannon make it a formidable vehicle for strafing, bombing, and reconnaissance. Crew - 1 Propulsion - Boosted Gravity Propulsion Drive Armament - Twin Plasma Cannons Secondary Weapon System - Fuel Rod Cannon Description: Quite fun to play around with, you can fly it. You can do a couple of tricks in this vehicle. First off, hold the thumbstick to the left and press A and you will do a barrel roll to the left. Hold the left thumbstick towards the right and press A and you will do a barrel roll to the right. Also hold the left thumbstick down and press A and you will do a fancy backflip. This vehicle is great when you do not have any powerful weapons on you, but you need to take out a powerful foe. Just take off and fly above your enemy and launch a fuel rod at them and well that basically ensures they will not be getting back up. Wraith - Heavily armed with ballistic plasma cannon, Wraith makes an excellent first-strike ground assault vehicle, as useful against structures and vehicles as it is against individual infantry. Thanks to considerable mass, Wrath is slow, and a boost function assists overall maneuverability. Crew - 1 Propulsion - Boosted Gravity Propulsion Drive Armament - Plasma Mortar and 2 Auto-firing Plasma Cannons Description: This is basically the equivilant to the Human Tank. A great vehicle when you get yourself into a sticky situation. It can take a good deal of damage and it can also deal out a very good deal of damage from its Plasma Mortar. The Dual Auto-firing Plasma Cannons are really meant to just keep you attacking while the main Plasma Mortar is reloading, but if you have a good shot the Dual Auto-firing Plasma Cannons can be very deadly. The only large downfall to this vehicle is its speed. It suffers from sluggishness, but its not that big of a deal since this vehicle will mainly be used for initial attacking or when your health gets low and you need an escape. Spectre - Multi-troop armored transport is small and maneuverable to travel with ease in Human dwelling areas. Can carry pilot and gunner; 2 passengers may ride on the flanks. However, relatively low speed makes it vulnerable to attack. Rear-mounted plasma cannon provides ample discouragement to most Human, but best employed in end-of-battle scenarios. Crew - 1 + 1 gunner (+ 2 riders) Propulsion - Boosted Gravity Propulsion Drive Armament - Plasma Cannon Description: Very closely related to the Human M12 Warthog LRV and the Human M12G1 Warthog LAAV. This vehicle is meant to move some of your forces at a decent speed, but while still being able to defend its self fairly decently. The downfall to this vehicle is that the 2 riders will not have any cover, so if you are going through a battlefield you can pretty much expect the riders to atleast be injured if not killed. The Plasma Cannon mounted on to the back can dish out some damage, but this vehicle is not the fastest nor can it take an extreme amount of damage. Shadow - Most flexible ground-based troop transport, capable of delivering multiple armed troops quickly and efficiently. Can hold driver, gunner, and up to 8 occupants depending on type and relative size of infantry, but Shadow is outfitted to carry Jiralhanae (also known as brutes), Sangheili (also known as Elites), Unggoy (also known as Grunts), and Kig-yar (also known as Jackals). Crew - 2 + 8 Propulsion - Boosted Gravity Propulsion Drive Armament - Plasma Cannon Description: A great vehicle to move your forces. Not too fast though thats the downfall. The Plasma Cannon mounted on the back is good for taking out your enemies. It has excellent defense though. Basically only use this if you need to move a bunch of troops, or its the only vehicle near you and you are nearly dead. If you have a choice between this and another vehicle, take the other vehicle. One other downfall is that you can not fire any weapon from the drivers seat. -------------- Human Vehicles -------------- Vehicle Ranking (1 being the best, 3 being the worst): 1 - M12 Warthog LRV (Good speed, maneuverable, good defense, well equipped with weapons.) 2 - M808B Scorpion MBT (Powerful against both Covenant Infanty and Covenant Vehicles, but it is slow.) 3 - M12G1 Warthog LAAV (Although this is a good vehicle it weight in at 3rd because it is not excellent in any catagory.) M12 Warthog LRV - Well-armed and highly maneuverable, the only Human vehicle that can match Ghost in tight quarters. Can carry 3 occupants, one of whom mans turret-mounted projectile weapon. Fires very high density of super-sonic metallic projectiles. Quite fast, can be forced into tight maneuvers using mechanical/magnetic braking system. To power-slide, pull the Left trigger for the E-brake. Crew - 1 + 1 (plus one more in rear Weight - 3.25 tons Armament - 12.7mm three-barreled machine gun Description: A great vehicle for any area. This is your best offensive against Covenant infantry. As long as you have yourself a gunner and a passenger you are basically golden. This vehicle offers your passengers and yourself ample defense. It is also quite fast, and is very capable of holding its own in battle against the covenant vehicles. M12G1 Warthog LAAV - Identical in every respect to other Human personnel transport variants, except for turret-mounted magnetic-accelerator cannon. Fires single penetrating round at very high seed. Effect on shielding and armor must be respected. Crew - 1 + 1 (plus one more in rear) Weight - 3.5 tons Armament - 25mm Gauss Cannon Description: An excellent vehicle to be used in any area. This is a good offensive against Covenant infantry and Covenant vehicles. The M12 Warthog LRV is better than the M12G1 Warthog LAAV in its ability to take out Covenant infantry. The M808B Scorpion MBT outweighs the M12G1 Warthog LAAV in ability to take out Covenant vehicles. Overall this vehicle is balanced between strenght and firepower. M808B Scorpion MBT - Heavy, Slow, but nonetheless powerful, Human tank capable against ground and aerial targets. Combination of guns-large, single-projectile cannon and secondary coaxial weapon firing a rapid stream of metallic projectiles-make it primary target. Heavily armored and difficult to destroy. Occupancy - 1 Human or single cyborg pilot Main gun - 90mm high-velocity shell Secondary/coaxial gun - 7.62mm AP-T (Armor Piercing Tracer) Description: This is a good vehicle to blast enemies into pieces with. It can decimate all. Covenant Infantry it can take care of easily with its 7.62mm AP-T Gun. No need to worry about enemy vehicles, the 90mm high-velocity shells will blow through your enemies. It has supurb defense, and packs excellent firepower. The largest dowfalls are that it is not very maneuverable nor is it fast. ========== 6) Weapons ========== Press the B button to melee attack with any weapon. ----------------------------------------------- 6.1) Noble Tools of Conquest (Covenant Weapons) ----------------------------------------------- Plasma Pistol (Dual Wield) - Standard-issue firearm of lesser Unggoy (also known as Grunts) is still a flexible and useful tool, wielded correctly. Charged bursts of plasma decimate shielding, should the user hold trigger closed. Shorter bursts can be fired rapidly and repeatedly. Charge depletes in difficult battlefield situations. Once energy core has completely discharged, weapon is useless. Core Power Output: 100-150kV:2-3dA Clip Size - 100 percent charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium-Fast Melee Damage - 7/10 Description: A reliable weapon. You can charge it to kill an enemies shield. It is overall a decent weapon. Its major downfall though is that if you fire it too fast it will overheat. Also you have a limited energy cell for it. Plasma Rifle (Dual Wield) - Favored by Sangheili (also known as Elites) but abailable throughout military, Plasma Rifle makes excellent mid-range weapon. Powerful, light, and deadly in capable hands. Fires super-heated plasma bolts in automatic or semi-automatic fashion. Limited power supply is only weakness. Once energy core has completely discharged, weapon is useless. Rate of Fire: 420-600 rounds per minute Clip Size - 100 percent charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage -8/10 Brute Plasma Rifle (Dual Wield) Rate of Fire: 420-600 rounds per minute Clip Size - 100 percent charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 7/10 Weapon rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 8/10 Description: Takes out all kinds of enegry shields. If you dual wield this weapon with another weapon you will be able to clear down enemies with this weapon amazingly. You can crush their shields then annihilate them with waves of bullets. (Note: The Brute Plasma Rifle is red and can be obtained later in the game. Also it is slightly stronger than a Normal Plamsa Rifle, but it will overheat faster, so use it carefully.) Needler (Dual Wield) - Although of limited use against artillery or vehicles, a dangerous weapon. Inflicts enormous pain on targets as barbs erupt explosively in flesh. Concentrated grouping of quills kills most Humans quickly. Slight richochet effect means it should be wielded carefully. Clip Size - 30 rounds per magazine Max Number of Clips - 3 Clips Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Short - Medium Melee Speed - 6/10 Melee Damage - 7/10 Description: A decent weapon not the greatest but its better than nothing. If paired up with the correct weapon you can use it effectively, but I would not suggest taking this weapon into a group of enemies alone if you have another weapon to choose from, but if you don't have anything else then be careful. Covenant Carbine - Using very high-speed radioactive ammunition, highly flexible and accurate rifle. Best used at medium distances against Human opponents, features a digital visual enhancer, doubling magnification of chosen targets. Clip Size - 36 rounds per magazine Max Number of Clips - 3 Clips Weapon Damage - 7/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium - Long Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 8/10 Description: This is a good gun, its good to charge into a group of enemies with Rambo style, its good for taking enemies out from far away. This is a good all around weapon you can use it to take out most enemies it is generally effective against all. Particle Beam Rifle - Excellent choice for long-distance execution of targets. Charged-particle weapon fires lethal beam, shot to head gurantees success against shielded or unshielded target. Rifle has digital visual enhancer, with two levels of magnification for mid- to long-distance targeting. Clip Size - 18 bursts per charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 9/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium Weapon Accuracy - Long Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 8/10 Description: Great for distanced shooting and it will surely crush your enemies from great distances. Get some good cover and you can pop their heads and they won't even know what hit them, literally. Brute Shot - Jiralhanae (also known as Brutes) grenade launcher fires powerful ballistic explosives. Can fire these explosives in rapid succession-a string of four before reload required. Very short fuse allows skilled marksmen to deflect grenades off of hard surfaces to reach covered targets. Clip Size - 4 Rounds per belt Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 9/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium-Fast Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: A very effective weapon that should be freared by you when you go up against a brute, one well placed shot can take you out, but this weapon is also very effective against brutes. When fighting them in groups kill one of them grab their Brute Shot, and use it against the other Brutes, oh how the tables have turned. You can use the Brute Shot much more effectively than Brutes can. Covenant Energy Sword - Noble and ancient weapon, wielded by strongest of Sangheili (also known as Elites), requires great skill and bravery to use, and inspires fear in those who face its elegant plasma blade. Energy sword not to be used by those of ignoble rank, under any circumstances. Press B for regular melee attack, and pull Right trigger for basic undercut attack. Or wait until reticle turns red to lock on an enemy, then pull Right trigger to perform a fatal lunge attack. Length: 3 feet Clip Size - 100 percent charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 9/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Short Melee Speed - Fast Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: One of the most fabled weapons in Halo 2, a strong, powerful weapon. Sneak up behind your enemies and hit them with one strike from this quick blade you will be bidding them farewell. Each stroke of the blade will lower the energy of it, and different enemies will take more energy to damage, in multiplayer the sword has unlimited energy, but in campaign play when you can get a new sword, get it the charges goes much faster than you would think. Fuel Rod Gun - Fuel Rod Gun is a useful infantry tool, designed to be used against smaller vehicles and personnel. Radioactive ammunition renders it particularly effective against Human ground forces. Optical zoom facility makes it accurate as well as powerful. Clip Size - 5 rounds per clip Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 9/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium Weapon Accuracy - Medium-Long Melee Speed - Slow-Medium Melee Damage - 8/10 Description: This is a decent weapon very dangerous if you use it in a close area you can easily kill yourself. It is not as powerful as the Human Rocket Launcher is, but it can shoot more rounds before having to reload so they basically balance eachother out. It is hard to come across this weapon and ammo for it. Plasma Grenade - Most commonly used thrown explosive in our arsenal is flexible and powerful plasma device. Intelligent-adherance quality rewards accurate thrower, and has proven itself especially useful when attempting to halt or destroy Human vehicles. Adheres firmly to Human epidermal layer. Slow fuse allows thrower three seconds to retreat from blast radius. Radius: 30 feet Clip Size - 1 Max Number of Clips - 4 Weapon Damage - 10/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Slow Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Not Available Melee Damage - Not Available Description: This is a great grenade. Carried by the Covenant, but can be employed by the Humans also. It sticks to whatever it hits, remember that. If you have a tough enemy, or a cluster of enemies, just toss one towards them and if it sticks, goodbye. ------------------------------------------------ 6.2) Primitive Implements of War (Human Weapons) ------------------------------------------------ M6C Pistol (Dual Wield) [Magnum] - Almost laughably weak in most circumstances; however, Human pistol fires metallic projectiles which can be dangerous when fired very accutately. Often used as last resort by desperate Humans and one of their least threatening devices. Features no visual targeting enhancement and can be fired just 12 times before physical reload is required. Clip Size - 12 Max Number of Clips - 5 Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium-Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 7/10 Description: This is a good last resort weapon. It is a good dual wield weapon. Quick to fire, when you duel wield it try to keep your gun reloading at opposite times. BR55 Rifle [Battle Rifle] - Accurate, reasonably powerful, and carries large number of small explosive-fired metallic projectiles. Fires burst of 3 projectiles. Battle Rifle has optical visual enhancement, doubling the magnification of chosen targets. Clip Size - 36 rounds per magazine Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium-Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium-Long Melee Speed - Slow-Medium Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: The best fall back weapon. Shoots in spurts of 3, has a scope, and is fairly powerful. Standard issue to all marines if you need one you know where to find one. Find a bit of cover, and zoom on in a group of enemies and it is possible to take them out without being noticed. M7/Caseless Sub Machine Gun (SMG) (Dual Wield) - Reliance on explosive chemical percussion makes its performance erratic and apparently difficult to control. Kinetic energy causes inaccurate firing. But sheer number of projectiles makes it a more difficult obstacle to infantry. Clip Size - 60 rounds per magazine Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 6/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium distances Melee Speed - Medium-Fast Melee Damage - 8/10 Description: This weapon has a major drawback because of its movement while you are firing it. To make this weapon more effective fire it in short bursts, and if you are dual wielding it try to make it so when one gun runs out of ammo your other one can hold off the enemies until your other gun reloads, and when your other gone is reloaded your other one will run out, I find this an effective strategy to this gun, it keeps you from being attacked by enemies while you are reloading. S2 AM Sniper Rifle - Using gas pressure as mode of percussive acceleration, very high-powered weapon fires aerodynamically assisted projectiles made of very hard metal. Long barrel ensures true and accurate aim, penetrates all flesh. Direct strike to head kills energy-shielded infantry. Has 2 levels of digital visual enhancer, to increase the magnification of chosen targets. Clip Size - 4 rounds per magazine Max Number of Clips - 6 Clips Weapon Damage - 10/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Slow - Medium Weapon Accuracy - Long Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: Hold to the back lines behind your Marines, let them get up front with their close to medium combat weapons your role is to be the royal sharpshooter. Grab cover, zoom in, point to thing you want dead, click, congratulations. M19 SSM Rocket Launcher - Suprisingly effective and somewhat admired, fires missiles containing chemical explosive that can track moving vehicles. Effective even against Lekgolo (also known as Hunters). Launcher had digital magnification of chosen targets. Reticle indicator denotes when launcher has locked on target. Clip Size - 2 102mm shaped-charged rockets Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 10/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Slow-Medium Weapon Accuracy - Medium-Long Melee Speed - Slow Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: 2x zoom, rockets can lock on, this means great things. Grab a decent amount of ammo and get ready to take out anything that comes your way. With a few shots you will crush everything. A great weapon but be careful when you use it, it really only fits for cetrain circumstances, it is very much overkill to use a rocket on a grunt. M90 Shotgun - Long-barreled weapon packs many tiny projectiles into each shot fired. Sprays cone pattern and while useless at any reasonable distance, is quite powerful at close range. In warrents of dwellings where we must fight, must be taken seriously. Humans must manually pump to refresh firing chamber. Clip Size - 12 8-gauge shotgun shells Max Number of Clips - 4 Clips Weapon Damage - 8/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Slow-Medium Weapon Accuracy - Short Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: This is a classic weapon. But you need to be careful with it If there is a break in battle reload it, it is terriable to get caught reloading this gun, it takes a while and makes you an easy target. This will deal major damage to shielded and unshielded foes alike. Just be sure not to use if from far ranges, you are wasting ammo, and not even hurting your enemies. You are just alerting everyone of your location. M9 HE-DP Fragmentation Grenade - Chemical explosive contained within hard casing. Operates on impact-activated timed fuse. When thrown by Human, fuse activates as it strikes object. However, grenade has no adherence ability and bounces unpredictably. Explosive radius and ability to inflict harm not to be underestimated. Radius: 15-30 feet Clip Size - 1 Max Number of Clips - 4 Weapon Damage - 10/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Slow Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Not Available Melee Damage - Not Available Description: A standard issue grenade. All Marines carry them and they are deadly. With one toss you can clear out a group of enemies. Fragmentation do not stick to your enemies so you can effectively bounce them around corners over walls and off of vehicles to decimate your enemies. M41 LAAG (Vehicle Mounted) - The most commonly encountered weapon on the Human "Warthog" vehicle, this projectile firing weapon uses chemical percussion to fire projectiles at a high rate of speed and frequency. Simple but effective technology. Clip Size - Unlimited Max Number of Clips - Unlimited Weapon Damage - 7/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Not Available Melee Damage - Not Available Description: A very effective weapon against enemy ground infantry. It has a quick fire rate, and has a decent range on it. It has a small shield around the gun the protect the gunner from forward attacks, and it can tear through all enemies. One bonus about this gun is that you never have to stop firing it. The clip size is infinite and you never need to reload. One large minus to it is that you can only use it from the back of the Warthog. M68 Gauss Cannon (Vehicle Mounted) - This curious Human weapon uses familiar magnetic-coil technology, but to accelerate primitive, though effective, projectiles at incredibly high speeds. Very effective and destructive against energy shielding. Not as effective against multiple ground forces. Clip Size - Unlimited Max Number of Clips - Unlimited Weapon Damage - 9/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Medium Weapon Accuracy - Long Melee Speed - Not Available Melee Damage - Not Available Description: This weapon is great at taking out enemy vehicles and immobilizing large enemies, but it is very poor to use it against single enemies such as grunts you will have a tough time hitting them, and you will just be making yourself vunerable to enemy attacks. It never runs out of ammo and has a decent fire rate. It has a small shield to protect you from frontal attacks. ------------------ 6.3) Other Weapons ------------------ Sentinal Beam Clip Size - 100 Charge Max Number of Clips - 1 Weapon Damage - 8/10 Weapon Rate of Fire - Fast Weapon Accuracy - Medium Melee Speed - Medium Melee Damage - 9/10 Description: A good weapon it will overheat though, so be careful in using it. It is a relaible weapon, but when the charge starts to run low change it out if you can, it would not be good to be caught without any energy left in it. ============== 7) 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 numberous as they are ferocious; their attacks are devastating. Survival is not guranteed. Legendary - You face opponents who have never known defeat, who laugh in alien tongues at your efforts to survive. This is suicide. ---------------- 7.1) The Heretic ---------------- For failure such as this, no punishment is too great. The introduction to this level gives you the general background of Halo: Combat Evolved. You learn a little more about the Halo's. The Elite in the Golden armor pays for his mistakes at Halo. He took all of the ships in his command chasing after the Pillar of Autumn. He did not annihilate the Humans before they could desicrate the sacred ring by stepping on it. Lead out by two Brutes the Elite pays for his failures. ----------- 7.2) Armory ----------- Suit up, prepare for battle.

Once you get to the last stop you will see a couple armored Marines and a cut scene will begin. You will begin to see scenes cutting back and forth between the Heretic Elite and Master Chief and his friends getting awards. The Heretic gets a couple of nice electric shocks, and Master Chief and company get the Colonial Cross award for Master Chief and Myranda Keyes gets an award for her father's actions. The Heretic Elite gets a brand of the Mark of Shame.

Find yourself a nice spot where you can get a vantage point of the far door in this room. *************************** 7.3.1) Home Field Advantage *************************** Objectives: -Repel the Covenant boarders. The Enemies will be trying to cut through the door. Once the door blows, start firing towards them. Be sure you have some good cover though because if your shields drop you will need it. Some enemies will come from the top area above the door you are focusing on, when they come out kill them. After a couple waves of Covenant Grunts and Elites head through the door that they came through. Be sure to grab any ammo you come upon, you will need it. Once you pass through this door, take some cover and attack the Elites and Grunts that are to your right. Pass by the where you killed the Elites and Grunts in this room and make a right, you will see a ground mounted turret, but go up the steps. Once your at the top make a left and pass through this door. While it may be tempting to head to that turret you see directly on your left, do not do that just yet, go straight to the other side of this room and down those stairs, kill the enemies you come upon down there, then go back up to that Turret and kill any left over enemies. If you go directly for the turret when you first come into the room, the enemies that were in the stair well will usually come up and attack you, not always, but playing it safe will keep you alive. Once you take care of the enemies head back down those stairs, make a left and into the main room that should have a few marines standing in it, depending on whether they died or not. In this room make a right and pass between some plants on your left and a raised up area on your right, then pass between a raised up area on your left and some plants on your right. Some enemies will come out of a locked door on your right, take care of them, then go through the open door on your left, there will be some enemies in there.

Go through this door and you will see another door pass through that one. Make a right and get yourself a nice vantage point in this room and a swarm of flying enemies will come in and attack you. Kill them and an escelator will be coming up the tracks, kill the enemies that are on it, and jump on to it and ride it down.

After you have taken care of all the enemies around two big hunters will bust out of an opening that can be covered by that machine gun. Pass through the area they came from and pass out and make a right. Take cover against the wall to your left and you can look around the corner crush the enemies from the cover of the wall. There is an enemy with a Long Range covenant weapon up high shooting at you, so take him out first, and then take out the enemy Jackals down low.

Your tank will hold up, once you get a decent way over the bridge some enemies will fly by you on the sides, so be wary of them. Also when you get in the tank hold position for a few seconds and let the marines gather on the sides they will be helpful against enemies. Be careful though some Covenant tanks will be shooting at you from across the bridge. Pass through the toll at the other end, no worries you don't have to pay just blast through with you tank and go into the tunnel with the SV.2326 labeled next to it. You will get to a point where your path is blocked off, get out of the tank and pass around the road block. Jump back down to the road and kill the group of Covenant.

Once your platform docks you will be greated by another one of those large shielded robots, along with many flood. The flood are probably the highest threat to you since they can jump great distances, have strong attacks, are fast, and are hard to take down, so focus on them first. Jump over a half wall that you will see surrounding the perimmeter of this area circle this area to the right and you will come up on another piston, active it and drop down. This area has a high flood concentration so be careful and deal with them quickly. After passing through this small area you will come upon yet another piston activate it and go down. Take the one and only exit from the piston area and you will see a shotgun on the ground, grab it you will need it to deal with the flood. After passing through that tough section you will come up on a piston towards the end, activate it and drop down. Do not get to close to the edge in this area or else you will fall off and die, but you will be fighting one of those large mechanical shielded creatures so be ready but you also need to focus your attacks towards the flood so they do not destroy you, so the best strategy for this area is to let the mechanical creature stay around as long as possible to help you fight the flood it will focus on them more than it will you. After everyone is taken care you you will see a piston in this area, activate it and follow it down. You will find yourself in a dark and foggy room these visual impairments will prove to be quite tough so be ready.

Head straight and pass through the door infront of you. As soon as you walk in you will be ambushed by some brutes, kill them and pass through the doors at the top of the slope. From that exit get over to the other side and pass through those doors. Work your way through this area it is basically a straight forward area, but it is full of enemies with camo so just take it slow. Pass through the lower level exit in this area. You will pass through another door and find yourself outside behind some brutes, take them out. Then cross through this area and go through the door on the opposite side.
