Marine forces have failed to neutralize a Covenant stronghold and are requesting Spartan assistance.

Clean Up is the first chapter of Spartan Ops Episode 2.[1]


Note: All dialogue is spoken through the COM.


Forerunner AA guns fire into the air non-stop. A Kig-Yar Heavy hisses and screeches and bangs his gun on his shield.

  • Palmer: "Crimson, your job today is to dig out some nasty Covenant squatters. They've parked themselves in a hole with anti-air guns and are proving themselves to be quite a pain in the UNSC's ass. Hit 'em fast, hit 'em hard, don't leave anyone standing."


  • Miller : "Whoa! Mounted turrets."
  • Palmer: "Take it slow, Crimson. No need to rush."
  • Miller: "Commander, there's a few Watchers in the air."
  • Palmer: "So not just Covenant, but Prometheans too. Noted."

The players reach the top of the structure and kills all of the Covenant.

  • Miller: "Watchers!"
  • Palmer: "Heads up!"

The players kill several Watchers.

  • Miller: "Almost done. Just a few to go."

The players kill the last Watcher.

  • Miller: "Area's clear, Commander."
  • Palmer: "Let's get those AA guns offline."
  • Miller: "Marking the conduit pylons now. There you go, Crimson."

Two waypoints appear at either side of the structure's base.

The players approach the first waypoint. Several Crawlers and Watchers appear.

  • Dalton: "Commander Palmer, how long until those guns are offline? I can't get a bird within ten klicks of that location."
  • Palmer: "Settle down, Dalton, we're working on it."

The players activate one switch.

  • Miller: "One pylon offline."

More Crawlers and Watchers appear as the player nears the second waypoint.

The player activates the second switch.

  • Miller: "That's both pylons, Commander. Whoa! A slipspace signature just blipped near Crimson."
  • Palmer: "Point the way, Miller. Let's have a look."

A waypoint appears near the front of the structure. More Watchers and Crawlers appear.

  • Miller: "Lots of activity nearby. Be ready for anything, Crimson."
  • Palmer: "Dalton, Crimson could use some resupply."
  • Dalton: "You got it, Commander."

Four ordnance pods drop at the base of the structure.

Several Promethean Knights appear as the players approach the pods.

  • Miller: "Oh, man! Knights!"

More Knights phase in.

  • Miller: "Prometheans! Multiple targets, all directions."
  • Palmer: "Stay focused, Crimson. Take them down."

The players kill most of the Prometheans.

  • Miller: "You're almost there! Hell yeah!"
  • Palmer: "Miller. A bit of decorum, please?"

The players kill all of the Prometheans.

  • Miller: "That's the last of them, Commander."
  • Palmer: "Dalton, a ride home for Crimson, please."
  • Dalton: "You got it, Commander."

A Pelican approaches and lands hovers in front of the structure.

  • Miller: "Commander Palmer, distress call coming in. It's the science team investigating where Crimson recovered that Forerunner artifact."
  • Palmer: "Distress?"
  • Miller: "Heavy Covenant forces bearing on their position. They've taken refuge, but they need extraction."
  • Palmer: "Miller, tell them help's on the way. Dalton, change of plans. Crimson's going to rescue some eggheads."


Level ends.
