Torch and Burn
You'll only have a few basic allies during this mission, meaning most of the work will be in your hands. The first Covenant outpost is well protected, so you'll want to use your DMR to snipe whatever you can before moving in close with your rapid fire guns.
You'll gain a powerful scorpion, which will quickly lay waste to the enemy soldiers. It's cannon can also quickly destroy the generators and heavy cannons, making it unneeded to exit your vehicle and disable them on foot.
Take out each enemy vehicle one at a time with your cannon. While your blasts are powerful, they are slow, so be sure that every shot counts. Drive towards Sword Base and lay waste to the final defense. Exit the scorpion and enter the base.
Use your heavy weapons to destroy the elites and move into the bunker below. This is the same room where you fought the hunters during Oni: Sword Base. The grunts here will have access to turrets, but there is otherwise little threat.
Make your way through the remainder of sword base, which is much like the previous mission mentioned above. However, you'll take one final different route, leading to the canyon below.
This Cave is Not a Natural Formation
First arm yourself with powerful weapons. There are grenade launchers, rocket launchers and many automatic weapons. The main base defenses are the auto turrets that will seek out enemies. After they fire too many round, they will cool down and retract. You'll need to manually restart them to regain their support fire.
The Covenant will send wave after wave of enemy. As long as the turrets are kept in shape, the enemy forces won't be too powerful. Carter, Emile and Jun will secure the stronghold's front door, leaving you free to roam and protect the guns. When the enemy launches ghosts, you may want to steal one to quickly clear out any stragglers. Finally, use the control panel to open the base door, ending the mission.
