    1. Welcome to The Library. While this section isn’t particularly easy, it also isn’t easy to describe, as all you do is follow the floating psycho. Later you can also follow the arrows on the floor. You’ll start with the shotgun, but since you’re facing the FLOOD you will probably change weapons often as you’ll kill guys with guns more than you’ll find ammo. Just keep moving, don’t be afraid to get ahead or behind the Monitor. When the security drones come out, you’re just a little way from the elevator.
    2. At the top, the Monitor will ditch you almost immediately. Gather ammo if you can, and there are health packs below the path in the first little slope you see as he will ditch you to do a job and you’ll have to hold your position. This is where the endurance starts. There’s no advice, as there’s no pattern you just have to be better than the monsters. He’ll lead you a little further, and then you’ll have another endurance point while he opens a door. However this time the Flood will be armed and shoot a bit more often than you’re used to. I even saw one guy with a SPANKR, so be on your guard.
    3. Follow the next path, and when you reach what looks like the end, you’re going to enter a tunnel in the floor and pop out on the other side. After that, you’re almost there, look for an arrow or two on the floor, keep your wits about you, and you’ll reach another giant elevator.
    4. One more time with feeling. Look for the tunnel in the floor soon, keep moving, follow the arrows, protect yourself while the huge door opens, go through the tunnels in the floor, etc. If the arrows wind up facing the wrong way, you got past the Monitor, go find him and follow him.
    5. There will be one more endurance section, followed by another elevator, then another few turns. When the Monitor opens the final door, a giant glowing elevator will be in front of you and the flood will do what they do, and they’ll be using their guns well for a change. Either run like hell or clean up the area before you do anything else.
    6. ACHIEVEMENT: You get 25 points for The Library achievement for completing the level.

    Thank you so very much for making this walk through so easy to follow. I was continually getting stuck on the 343 Guilty Spark because of all the similar floors and also on the level before that – Assault on the Enemy Command, and being an older person (grandmother), it was confusing. I really wanted to be able to show my grand kids that their old Grandma could play Halo too, since they love Halo. LOL!! And again, your walk through explained it so easily and I am having fun now with the game and my grand kids. They think their “me-ma” is now cool. I THANK YOU for that. Do have a nice evening.

    Interesting. The walkthrough is uninformative at parts, leaving out vital objectives and events. The wording is also incorrect – the enemies are called ‘Grunt’, ‘Jackal’, ‘Elite Minor,’ ‘Elite Major,’ ‘Elite Honour Guard,’ and ‘Hunter’.
    It is, however, helpful – would be lost without it

    You should mention what difficulty it’s for. It’s clearly not written with heroic or legendary in mind
