These early missions are meant to provide instructions for new gameplay mechanics to help players get comfortable with the game while shaping the overall plot. This mission begins with a cutscene to set up some narrative context for the journey ahead. Players will be reintroduced to a familiar character who vaguely alludes to the chaos that is to come.
When the cutscene ends, you will drop into a hot zone and take control of Spartan Locke. As a member of Fireteam Osiris, your objective is to retrieve Dr. Halsey from Covenant custody on a war ravaged planet. As soon as you drop down onto the surface, prepare to battle a slew of Promethean forces.
The path forward is fairly linear, so simply push forward, eliminating any enemies you encounter. Pick up weapons along the way as you see fit. As you move along the path, keep to the right and locate a series of steps made out of rock outcroppings. Climb up the icy ledge to reach a doorway blocked by icicles. Use Sprint + RB to Spartan Charge through the ice wall.
Push forward, fighting off enemies along the path. Keep to the right, and hop up on a nearby ledge. From here you can jump along a series of platforms, using various maneuvers to take out enemies. Keep an eye on the HUD, as it will prompt you with instructions on how to perform certain moves.
Continue until you reach a large doorway. Enter the Security Station, and jump up onto a higher platform in the center. Access the terminal on this upper platform to analyze the Forerunner station, and then wait for a door to open on the lower level. Go through the newly opened door to proceed to the next area.
Move along the path as it curves to the left. Hop up a ledge and proceed into the open battlefield ahead. Eliminate the enemies throughout this area as you push toward Dr. Halsey’s location. Cross the battlefield and locate a large doorway along the left wall. As you put pressure on the enemies, the Kraken will be forced to retreat.
Enter the doorway and run forward down the hall. Access a Data Pad near a large window off to the right to gather a piece of Osiris Intel. Then, head through the door to the left and prepare to fight off a handful of Prometheans in the next room. Note that pressing up on the D-Pad will mark enemy targets for your team.
After you eliminate the remaining enemies in the room, approach the door ahead to trigger a cutscene and conclude the mission.
