You'll be aided by Jun during this mission. Both of you are armed with DMRs and sniper rifles, giving you a keen distance advantage against the enemy. Since it's night time, you may want to switch to night vision for most of this mission.
Since the Covenant isn't aware of your arrival, be sure to get in as many sneak attacks as you can. These are silent, instant death kills that won't alert the enemy. In some cases, your foes will be out of range for a melee attack, meaning you'll have to snipe them. This will however alarm the rest of the Covenant.
Follow Jun into the house where you'll begin your ambush. There is a active cammo power on the bottom floor, which will be essential for sneaking up on remaining enemies. Remember, this doesn't make you completely invisible, so enemies will attack once thy can spot you. Since you still have rifles, your best bet is to defeat the elites with headshots, rather than coming in close.
When ready, make your way to the next area. you have two options for clearing this area. The first is to perch up on the round ledge in the center, picking off enemies with your rifle there is even a mounted turret on the opposite end, though pivoting toward the enemy may be a problem. The more direct option is swooping around to the right side where a shot gun rests. This is a powerful weapon that can heavily damage enemies if fired from close range. It's a good way to quickly kill elites once the grunts are dealt with.
Travel along the path and you'll come across some humongous wildlife. The Covenant will keep them distracted, so there is no need to stop and fight. Move ahead and you'll find a group of mercenaries pinned down by elites. They only have basic magnums, making them sitting ducks against their well armed foes. It's best to snipe as many elites as you can before moving in close. There are plenty of health packs, so retreat and heal up before charging again.
It's most important to avoid staying in small rooms for too long, as the enemy will love tossing in frag grenades. One direct blast from these will kill even a full armored Spartan. Stay a good range away and headshot them before they can make an attack. The surviving mercs will join up. follow Jun and the rest of your allies and you'll arrive at the Covenant's main outpost.
The enemy is bunkered inside, so you'll want to do your best to draw them out. As mentioned above, fighting in close quarters can quickly end in your demise. they will even unleash hunters as a last resort. As always, attack them from behind to damage their weak point.
With the Covenant stronghold taken, advance forward You'll come across Covenant manned turrets. It's best to grab the hologram power up and send out a decoy. This will distract the enemy, giving you time to kill of the turret's operator. With the enemy's main offensive force wiped, it's a small matter of destroying the rest of the cannon fodder. Keep moving with Jun and the mission will conclude.
