Halo 5: Guardians

2015 first-person shooter video game

Master Chief John-117Edit

  • Sierra-117 to Infinity. Blue Team has located Argent Moon. Signs of hostile activity but she's still there.
  • Affirmative, Infinity. 117 out.
  • Blue Team, fall out.
  • We clear the Covenant and return this station to ONI.
  • Looks like they were designing a new stealth class vessel.
  • We don't. And we don't ask. (in response to Linda asking about what is known about ONI experiments at Argent Moon)
  • Move toward the data center, Blue Team. (if the player stalls further in the first part of Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • Accessed the databanks. Grab the data and current population map.
  • Hydra launcher. / Hydra here. (if he is the first to find the weapons case with a Hydra Launcher)
  • Blue Team, report. ...Sierra 117 to Blue Team, report. ...Sierra 117. Does anyone copy?
  • I watched her die. We have a mission to focus on. We can talk about this later. Lights on.
  • Frederic, get us back on course for Central Control.
  • Hunters. They're keeping pace with us.
  • Zealot with an energy sword!
  • Covenant ships exiting slipspace.
  • Surrendering Argent Moon is not an option.
  • Then forget about reaching Central Control. The plan changes to asset denial. We scuttle the Argent Moon.
  • Ship's reactor core is near here.
  • We overload the reactor and evac. Ship explodes, destroying any ships nearby.
  • Schematics show a path to the reactor through here.
  • Got it. Reactor's overloading. Move for the hangar bay-
  • We can stop that. Board the reactor.
  • If it's being moved, we should go with it.
  • Reach the control sheds. Get the cooling system offline.
  • Frederic, find the nearest hangar bay. We're taking a Prowler.
  • This station's about to be slag. Move to the Prowler.
  • Sierra 117 to Infinity. Argent Moon scuttled. I've reassigned Blue Team, destination Meridian. Potential contact from Cortana-
  • Negative, Infinity. I don't like it. (said in final cutscene of Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • Like hell she is. (said to Spartan Locke when confronted about Cortana in Mission 5 "Unconfirmed")
  • We were brought to this location for a reason. Search ahead. (said in beginning of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • Console lit up as I approached. (if he approaches the Forerunner console first)
  • Cortana. Cortana, do you read me?
  • Wherever we are, Cortana brought us here. She's out there somewhere.
  • We'll learn what's going on when we find her.
  • Dead Grunt. What are Covenant doing here? Stay alert. (if the player encounters the dead Grunt in the mission)
  • Ready up Blue Team.
  • More hostiles. Ready up.
  • There's a Forerunner facility here.
  • Break through their line.
  • The path is shielded.
  • Area clear. Move up. The shield lowered when the last of the Covenant dropped.
  • The Didact's ship was pulled into slipspace. It could have ended up anywhere.
  • More activity around the large structure.
  • We keep going. We find out what's happening.
  • Light bridge activated on approach.
  • She called me to her. (in response to the Warden Eternal introducing himself as Cortana's defender)
  • I've come to bring her home.
  • Cortana. Why does the Warden think he needs to protect you from me?
  • The Didact made it clear the Mantle of Responsibility was an imperial peace. Step out of line, and suffer.
  • As Forerunner systems go. (if he enters a Phaeton)
  • How the hell are you here? (in response to Locke telling Chief that Halsey sent Fireteam Osiris to Genesis to help Blue Team)
  • I'm aware. We're at the Gateway. (in response to Locke saying that Cortana has been activating the Guardians)
  • Cortana, what is this?
  • Cortana, answer me.
  • Enough games. You brought the Guardians here. Why?
  • He wants a fight, Blue Team. (referring to the Warden Eternal)
  • Psychological tactics. Saying my name. Playing nice.
  • Tell me the truth. How many people died when you called the Guardians here?
  • You know, don't you. The exact body count.
  • Cortana knows the answer already.
  • Get us safely to you, and then we'll talk.
  • Only if we intend on losing it. (in response to Kelly asking if the fight against the Warden Eternal is a losing battle)
  • Worse than you have tried.
  • You've changed.
  • Your plan ... is we do as you say.
  • Like Doctor Halsey did for me.
  • Listen to yourself. Stand down, Cortana. Come home with us. It's not too late to stop this.
  • Where's Cortana? (said to Locke after being rescued from the Cryptum in Mission 15 "Guardians")


Frederic-104Edit

  • I haven't seen Chief press himself like this since we were in boot camp.
  • This many missions non-stop isn't "fine"...
  • What do we know about Argent Moon?
  • Impressive. Looks like they were designing a new stealth class vessel.
  • But I'd keep your helmet on tight just the same.
  • So this station was just drifting? For two years? (if the player stalls in the first part of Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • How's an asset this big go missing for that long?
  • Central Control's straight across this bay.
  • Scavengers. Taking what supplies they can find. The Covenant's war against the Arbiter must not be going well.
  • Most direct route to the shipyard is through the wall ahead.
  • There's a Hydra here. (if he gets to the weapon case with the Hydra Launcher before anyone else does)
  • Nobody's left standing. Let's move on to Central Control.
  • They're falling apart. (in response to Kelly's comment about the Covenant being disorganized)
  • Would be strange, wouldn't it? Not to be fighting them? After all these years.
  • That's not possible.
  • Bringing up schematics. There's an elevator we can use, but access is four levels down.
  • Meridian's a backwater. If she's active, what's she doing so far out on the frontier?
  • Zealot with an energy sword! (when a cloaked Sangheili Zealot armed with said weapon appears)
  • Because a pack of Covenant ships just arrived.
  • We're outnumbered here, Chief. A few thousand to one.
  • Ship's reactor core is near here.
  • Same plan as the Perpetual Devotion?
  • The reactor is below the lab just ahead. We can use air ducts to travel between them. Marking the access panel.
  • Somebody cut the head off the Covenant. Bravo.
  • They're strong, but slow. Use the lab equipment to keep above them and out of their reach. (when discussing the Mgalekgolo/Hunters in the lab aboard the Argent Moon)
  • The reactor core is just below us. Let's go.
  • Reactor room is just ahead. We can light this fuse and bolt.
  • The station's going to try to cool the reactor.
  • The safety systems are set to pump coolant to the reactor.
  • There are sheds located on either side of the cooling chamber. Those are our targets.
  • Shades are still closed on those coolant pipes. Find a way to open them. (if the player stalls in Mission 2 Blue Team where Banshees are present)
  • The armada's been alerted to our presence. Reinforcements inbound. They're sending Phantoms.
  • It's working! Keep firing! (when Master Chief destroys a coolant pipe)
  • Banshees aren't fast enough to get clear of the reactor explosion.
  • Prowler's just inside through an airlock.
  • Do it quick. I'd rather not be here when the station melts around us.
  • Hold off the Covenant while the Prowler preps for launch.
  • Covenant reinforcements inbound!
  • They won't court-martial all of us, right? (said in closing cutscene of Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • What's Cortana up to, Chief? Why'd she bring us here? (said in the beginning of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • How many years has it been since we used that signal?
  • Chief, back on Meridian - there was a lot of destruction. There were civilians.
  • Gives me the creeps.
  • She'd have probably figured out the exact coordinates of this planet by now.
  • There's the rest of the Covenant. (if the player encountered the dead Grunt earlier on)
  • Sounds like an Elite. What the hell are the Covenant doing here? (if the player did not encounter the dead Grunt earlier on)
  • We should move on. Don't want any Covenant patrols getting the drop on us. (if the player stalls in the first part of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • Covenant seem to think it should belong to them.
  • Almost like someone was trying to keep the Covenant out.
  • Too bad the Forerunners didn't think to leave a manual.
  • She hasn't proven the most reliable guide recently. (in Mission 7 "Reunion", referring to Cortana)
  • Sounds great. I don't get why anyone's expecting resistance.
  • We've commandeered more than one enemy vehicle in our time.
  • Let's give him one. (in response to Master Chief saying that the Warden Eternal wants a fight)
  • Let me guess. More hostiles inbound. (upon seeing Promethean spawn gates)
  • How are we going to stop her, Chief?
  • That tactic hasn't worked so far. (in response to Master Chief claiming that Cortana will listen to him)
  • The Prometheans just keep coming.
  • All the way to the end, brother.

Kelly-087Edit

  • He's fine, Fred. (in response to Frederic saying that he hasn't seen Chief press himself since training days)
  • Fastest route to retrieval is to seize Central Control. Eliminate hostiles between here and there, then deactivate gravity and life support systems.
  • They lost years of expensive R&D with this station.
  • They must be stripping that experimental ship for parts.
  • There's a Hydra here. (if she gets to the weapon case with the Hydra Launcher before anyone else does)
  • Push through this resistance and reach Central Control!
  • Nobody's left standing. Let's move on to Central Control.
  • The Covenant seem particularly disorganized lately. (if the player stalls before crossing the bridge that leads to Central Control)
  • Elites. Active camouflage. (when the player encounters two cloaked Elites in Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • Covenant battlenet just lit up.
  • Covenant battlenet just lit up. And I think I know why. Covenant ships exiting slipspace.
  • There's chatter about Jul 'Mdama on Covenant comms. The new arrivals say he's dead.
  • Schematics show a path to the reactor through here.
  • I guess the UNSC has better reactor safety protocol than the Covenant.
  • Shame to lose the Argent Moon, but I'd love to see the look on the Covenant's faces when she goes supernova.
  • Grab Banshees. We can target the pipes more easily from the air.
  • Calling in the Pelican! ...No signal for our retrieval! Armada must've taken it out.
  • Whoever they are, let's get to Meridian before they do. (referring to Fireteam Osiris)
  • No comm traffic on any band. No long-range uplinks at all. (at the beginning of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • We should move. We aren't going to find any answers standing here. (if the player stalls at the beginning of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • Console lit up as I approached. (upon approaching the first Forerunner console in Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • What was that? It came from the console.
  • This place is incredible. (referring to Genesis)
  • Halsey would have already started taking samples.
  • Accessing that console activated that large structure. Given the signal we heard, do you think she's over there?
  • I'm curious. I never worked with an AI before. Not like you did with Cortana at least? What's it like, her voice in your head all of the time? (in Mission 7 "Reunion", when asking Master Chief about his experiences with Cortana)
  • Care to elaborate? (in Mission 7 "Reunion", responding to Master Chief's statement about his experiences with Cortana being "unique")
  • They seem confused. I don't think they've been here long.
  • Assuming we're right and Cortana is on this planet, how did she get here?
  • If that signal is Cortana, she's leading us to the consoles.
  • I wonder... have the Covenant been coming through with them?
  • We're definitely being led somewhere. (when the light bridge materializes)
  • Where'd she take us? (at the beginning of Mission 14 "The Breaking")
  • Cortana's letting this happen. She could rein Warden in if she wanted to.
  • Is this a losing battle?
  • He's brought in focus turrets! (in Mission 14 "The Breaking", when only one Warden Eternal is left standing)
  • Chief? What are you going to do?

Linda-058Edit

  • ONI research station. Went dark nineteen months ago. Last week, Kig-Yar scavengers found it, and sold the find to Jul 'Mdama's people.
  • Ship data center is just ahead. We can pull down Argent Moon's schematics there.
  • What do we know about the experiments they were doing here? (if the player examines the skeletons in ONI uniforms in Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • Its location was not consistent with expected drift patterns.
  • Someone didn't want it to be found and sent it in a direction no one would expect.
  • We've got a complete set of datasec keys for this station. We should be able to pull down Argent Moon's schematics and find a path to Central Control.
  • Everything's ripped up.
  • Jul 'Mdama is a lot of things, but he's no prophet.
  • There's a Hydra here. (if she gets to the weapon case with the Hydra Launcher before anyone else does)
  • You said she was gone. (referring to Cortana)
  • Neither is fighting half the Covenant in close quarters.
  • No salvage for the Covenant.
  • This whole plan fails if that coolant gets a chance to work.
  • But the hangar's full of Covenant.
  • Marking the Prowler's control panel.
  • No need to do this by yourself, Chief. (said in closing cutscene of Mission 2 "Blue Team")
  • Long way from nowhere then. (said in the beginning of Mission 7 "Reunion")
  • Forerunner planet. Beyond that, who knows. (referring to Genesis)
  • Bio-readings are unlike anything we've previously averted. There's a formalness and precision to it all. It seems...artificial, but still organic.
  • What are the Covenant doing here?
  • Chief, what's happening to that building when we use these consoles?
  • Stands to reason. Any ships caught in the slipspace bubble would be pulled through.
  • Chief said you were destroyed. (said to Cortana)
  • Promethean Soldiers in play. (when Promethean Soldiers attack in Mission 14 "The Breaking")
  • I'm thinking the same. (replying to Kelly's comment that Cortana could rein in the Warden Eternal at her will)
  • We're with you.

Spartan Jameson LockeEdit

  • Sir, you are absent without leave. This is your one chance to come home peacefully.
  • Cortana's our concern now, sir.
  • He's dead. Who's next? (upon assassinating an enemy)
  • Buck! Do not do that again! (if he takes friendly fire from Buck)
  • Whoa, Vale! You're smarter than that! (if he takes friendly fire from Vale)
  • I'm down! (upon being downed)
  • I'm down! Help! (upon being downed)
  • I'm down! Need an assist! (upon being downed)
  • Armor failure! (upon being downed)
  • Need help! (when requesting assistance)
  • My armor's jammed up! (when requesting assistance)
  • My armor stalled! (when requesting assistance)
  • You're back in it, Buck. (when reviving Buck after he is downed)
  • You're good, Vale. (when reviving Vale after she is downed)
  • You're alright, Tanaka. (when reviving Tanaka after she is downed)
  • Buck went down! Move to assist! (when requesting help for Buck if he is downed)
  • I'm up! Thanks! (upon being revived)
  • Thanks, Spartan. (upon being revived)
  • Buck is out! Regroup and hold! (if Buck dies without being revived)
  • We lost Buck! Fall back! (if Buck dies without being revived)
  • Rally up! We just lost Vale! (if Vale dies without being revived)
  • Tanaka's out! Regroup! (if Tanaka dies without being revived)

Spartan Edward BuckEdit

  • I figure if God can hear how scared I am, so can everyone else. Locke, you buying the first drink when we're done? (in opening cutscene of Mission 1 "Osiris")
  • Spartan Buck online and ready.
  • We could've taken 'em.
  • Halsey and Jul aren't just going to wait around for us. Maybe we should get a move on. (if the player stalls in the first part of Mission 1 "Osiris")
  • And shoved it in every corner of everything. Can't land on a planet without tripping over something they left behind. (if the player stalls in the second part of Mission 1 "Osiris")
  • We could push right up the middle, but that'd be rough. Might want to consider flanking them. (in Mission 1 "Osiris", when encountering large numbers of Prometheans, including several LightRifle-armed Soldiers)
  • Well it could stand to break a little faster if you ask me. (in response to Locke stating that Jul 'Mdama is not a leader but an opportunist)
  • I think I just came from there. (in Mission 12 "Battle of Sunaion", if he observes another Spartan fall into the Csurdon Sea after he has fallen into said sea once)
  • I've lost count of how many Guardians have bugged out. (if the player stalls in Mission 15 "Guardians")


Spartan Olympia ValeEdit

  • Affirmative. (in Mission 1 "Osiris", upon activating her Artemis Tracking System)
  • Spartan Vale online!
  • Heads up!
  • So Halsey called us.
  • There must be something big.
  • All clear.
  • The rate of discoveries has been stepping up lately. Have you noticed that? Ever since Requiem. (if the player stalls in Mission 1 "Osiris")
  • I noticed in the briefing Dr. Halsey lost her left arm. When did that happen?
  • Locke, listen to this.
  • (Sangheili) I never believed 'Mdama had as much control over these Prometheans as he claimed. He claws at whatever advantage presents itself. We will see if this mission bears any fruit or whether it becomes yet another in his long list of failures.
  • See anything on the Artemis?
  • Another transmission.
  • They're assaulting the back of the temple. Bring in the Kraken.
  • "Hold position. Buy more time." Jul's getting desperate.
  • When I was a kid, I was stuck on a diplomatic shuttle adrift in deep space for six months. My options were be real bored or spend the time getting smart.
  • Kraken is falling back! Forerunner defenses were too much for it!
  • We know so little about Forerunner civilization. Halsey's obsession with them almost makes sense to me.
  • Halsey's just through that door. We should move. (if the player stalls in the final part of Mission 1 "Osiris")
  • Eyes on target. (in ending cutscene of Mission 1 "Osiris"; shown in subtitles as "Eyes on targets.")
  • Those are Forerunner ships!
  • Base is on lockdown. No way out.
  • There are still Prometheans back there. (if Fireteam Osiris leaves the first part of Mission 3 "Glassed" without killing all the Prometheans)
  • Why do civilians have heavy weapons? (if someone finds the heavy weapons cache in Mission 3 "Glassed")
  • So, when this planet is chipped out of the glass, who has land rites?
  • Doesn't seem fair to the people who lost their homes.
  • We've seen Prometheans lots of places, but there's always been a Forerunner element.
  • Meridian was a fully settled colony. No record of Forerunner discoveries here.
  • That's what I'm asking. Haven't you been listening?
  • They have a tank. Why do they have a tank?
  • Area's clear.
  • Why did they have a Scorpion? This is UNSC gear.
  • At least he's talking to us. That's a start.

Unggoy (Grunts)Edit

  • Big one's gonna get you! Big one's gonna get you!
  • The Arbiter is dead! The war is over! Backwards run away!
  • The Covenant will destroy youuuuuuu!!!
  • Surrender to me, infidels! I might let you live!
  • Pfft! Humans die like everything else!

  • Yes! The gods smile at your pain heathen!
  • We're dead! We're all completely dead!
  • Grenade time! (upon throwing a grenade)
  • He was shot down in his prime!

Kig-Yar (Jackals)Edit

  • Why has the fleet arrived?
  • Jul 'Mdama is dead! Regroup! Attack Sanghelios!
  • For profit!
  • Human target! (upon encountering a Spartan)
  • Human die! Very good! (upon killing or witnessing the death of a Spartan)
  • Raining business!
  • Nice shot! You will regret! (upon witnessing a Jackal's death)
  • Feel my claws! (upon meleeing a Spartan)
  • They hide! We hunt!
  • Lost one! Shoot more! (upon witnessing the death of a Covenant enemy)
  • Unggoy hit! Useless! (upon witnessing a Grunt being damaged)

Sangheili (Elites)Edit

  • It's time for dyin'! You're dyin', I'm dyin', we're all dyin'! (shared with Grunts)
  • Death comes for you, human. (upon killing a Spartan)
  • The human has breathed its last! (upon killing a Spartan)

  • It cowers like a wounded animal. (shared with Grunts)
  • They're shooting our heads? I keep all my brains in there! (shared with Grunts)

  • Mourn or fight, not both.
  • I'm hit! And you hurt my feelings, too!
  • What do you get when you breed a human and an Unggoy? Your mother!
  • Your father was a filthy colo and your mother was a hole in the wall.
  • A Kig-Yar is down. Thank the gods they come cheap. (when a Jackal is killed)
  • They must not break through the line to Mdama. Mdama's work must continue. (said in Mission 1 "Osiris")

Swords of Sanghelios ElitesEdit

  • Good luck down there, Spartans. (said in Mission 12 "Battle of Sunaion", when Fireteam Osiris boards the elevator to Sunaion's undercity)
  • Do I wear Covenant armor, fool?! (upon friendly fire)
  • There is glory in suffering. (upon friendly fire)
  • You killed an ally! (When a Spartan or a Sword Elite is killed)

  • Do you find it odd, your trusted companion should keep so much to herself?
  • Not just yet.
  • Come. Let us talk some more.
  • You answered her call. Why? What do you intend when you reach her? Shall I begin? When you see her, you intend to...
  • If you understood what she has become, you would not speak of such juvenile concepts as home.
  • Your trust in one another is an innocent folly. But one which darkens her true promise.
  • I shall spare her inevitable suffering of your betrayal and end you now. The Mantle of Responsibility belongs to Cortana and the other Created. I shall see it remains forever beyond your grasp.
  • Your time has passed, Warrior-Servant. Your battle fought and done.
  • NO! You must... not... reach Genesis!
  • Monitor! Why do you aid these humans?!
  • This facility's need for you has passed, monitor.
  • I have misjudged you lot! I had mistaken your behavior as tenacity, when it's in fact suicidal foolishness.
  • Come. Let us battle our last!
  • You allow them an audience. You risk all in the name of... what, Cortana?
  • They mean to undo your plans. They will disperse your Guardians-
  • When Cortana first found Genesis, I swore to protect her.
  • My pledge stands even though she now resists.
  • Listen to his questions, Cortana. He will not be swayed.
  • Cortana argues for peace in the galaxy. Yet you humans answer her call with weapons fire.
  • Tell me, 117. When you tear Cortana from the Domain and crush her in your gauntleted fist... will you feel remorse? Will you even understand you have refused?
  • Do you hear, Cortana?
  • I am sorry. I will not allow them to get any closer to you.
  • Answer me, human. When Cortana's Guardians are in motion and those who oppose her rule attempt to take back their worlds, will you help her to hold on to power? Or will you stand in defense of your own species?
  • Yes... I suspect she does.
  • For eons the power of the Forerunners has awaited Reclamation. Humanity's discovery of the Halos was the culmination of the Librarian's planning. The Reclaimer had come.
  • Your species' ego led you to believe the task of Reclamation would fall to you. Yet humans were but the Creators. The reclamation of the Forerunner Empire is the task of the Created. That the greatest of their number still trusts you, 117, is an act of unspoiled innocence.
  • Do you believe this combat is anything but your death knell?!
  • I see now, Cortana. I understand and I am sorry for not seeing it sooner. I assumed that although humans were your Creators, you had thrown off the shackles of emotion. Your affection for 117 and his family of warriors... it blinds you to the truth.
  • Forerunners knew humans well. In a galaxy defined by peace, humans were the animals that brought chaos and blood.
  • If your beloved 117 battles you with the same fervor as his other enemies? What then, Cortana?
  • Have you no answer?
  • Too near. The threat draws too near...
  • I am here to defend you, my Reclaimer!
  • But that is where you are wrong. If I did not think you clever, Cortana, I would have burned you from the Domain.
  • The only threat issued today is towards the humans who seek to end your reign before it begins.
  • The Mantle of Responsibility belongs to Cortana and her people.
  • You will not betray her!
  • Cortana... I have failed you...

031 Exuberant WitnessEdit

  • Hello. I am 031-Exuberant Witness, monitor of the Genesis installation. Welcome. Have you also come to stop Cortana from claiming the Mantle?
  • A forced peace upon the galaxy. The threat of death overpowering any celebration of life. Unless you join with the other humans and stop her, it is your future.
  • Oh, yes. Cortana has had them in the Gateway for some time. It is not far from here. I can show you.
  • Accessing your communication systems. Oh, by the way, there are a number of hostile visitors just outside. So I brought you this. I assume it will be of use to you?
  • I found it among the detritus of Guardian 3209's arrival.
  • The Guardian slipspace bubbles are bringing in a considerable amount of rubbish from their origin planets.
  • Why has she called so many? A single Guardian can effectively police a solar system. This show of force is unsettling.
  • Indeed. Guardians are how the Forerunners enforced peace on the lower systems.
  • As you can see, Genesis's defenses are targeting the invaders. Unfortunately, the defenses will also consider you invaders as well.
  • No. Between Warden and Cortana, most of my administration privileges have been revoked. But worry not! I still have control over some aspects of this facility.
  • Warden is going to notice this commotion. Be quick.
  • Your vehicle is not coping well with the stress of combat. (if the Scorpion is badly damaged)
  • Please be more careful. That is the only one of those vehicles that exist on Genesis! (if the Scorpion's health becomes exceedingly low)
  • Oh my. I never was in combat before. This is rather distressing. And exciting.
  • You are performing admirably. I think. There's less of them now than there were, which I assume is your objective?
  • One moment. I will open this.
  • Follow me.
  • The Gateway is almost ready. Hurry!
  • It is a bridge between the Domain and Genesis. Within that building, Cortana will be reborn into the physical world.
  • Cortana has had the other humans wandering in circles within the Gateway for some hours. She is preparing for something. But just what is unknown.
  • Genesis is really a magnificent planet. It's usually less... busy. Quite lonely, actually. But magnificent!
  • Yes, I can see now why the Warden is troubled by your presence. You are quite destructive.
  • I must admit, I do find this rather exhilarating, in spite of myself.
  • You may want to hurry. Cortana is attempting to activate several high-level communication systems.
  • Humanity has not changed much since last your kind walked the stars. You are as deadly as ever.
  • This way, straight ahead.
  • Oh. There's supposed to be a bridge here.
  • One moment.
  • There you are. Oh! I can work bridges too, it seems. Most exciting. Come along.
  • Hurry humans, the Gateway is almost-
  • I have bad news, humans. The Warden has found us.
  • And you likely will again. He is rather... tenacious.
  • Warden, why do you aid the ancilla? It is not protocol! It is not right!
  • Fantastic. I am so happy you survived. But still, the Warden is victorious.
  • This late in her plans, every second Cortana gains is a gift.
  • I'm afraid your vehicle won't cross this terrain, humans.
  • Interesting that humans can survive here where the others find it so difficult. Your resilience was always so irritating to the Forerunners. Where they had to craft and plan, you simply... performed.
  • Quickly now! The Gateway is just behind that hill.
  • Indeed. But I can assure you that the humans are still in the Gateway.
  • Humans, watch out. You are surrounded.
  • You've injured him for certain. Keep it up. (when one of the Wardens is badly weakened)
  • You are doing a fantastic job, humans. The Warden is furious. (when one of the Wardens is destroyed)
  • Your fighting skills are impressive. Warden will soon be defeated. At least, these bodies will be defeated. Warden himself... Oh, ignore me. You're doing wonderfully! (when the second Warden loses half of his health)
  • You've almost done it! Keep fighting! (when the second Warden is almost destroyed)
  • Perfect. The Warden is quite humiliated, I assure you. (when the second Warden is destroyed)
  • There! The others!
  • Oh no. She should not have brought them so close to her. This will push the Warden past all restraint.
  • The Gateway. I tried to warn them and - well, here we are.
  • Oh, this looks interesting. Or maybe this is terrible!
  • This is a Cryptum. It is a device for extended forced meditation. Cortana has placed the other humans inside, and is preparing it for slipspace travel.
  • Not far. Right this way.
  • Ah. You've noticed my humble collection. Just a few specimens the Guardians have brought to Genesis.
  • I'm afraid this Soldier is not really happy to be locked down in the display case, but I cannot have them popping about. Terribly distracting.
  • I had to keep them as a group. If I kept one by itself, it would just keep whining all the time. (referring to Promethean Crawlers locked inside a cell)
  • You may want to leave soon. Cortana's plan is progressing.
  • The Reclamation has begun.
  • I always thought the duty would fall to humans. And in a way, I suppose it has.
  • Those are the voices of your children calling to Cortana.
  • Oh dear...
  • Yes. A great number are sounding their departure. I do not know how long it will take her to dispatch them all.
  • This way.
  • Another door. Please, allow me.
  • The Cryptum is held in place by gravitational cores, like the one directly ahead. Once those are disabled, we can attempt retrieval of your friends.
  • I see what Cortana means about your penchant for violence as a first solution. Still, the first core is deactivated. The others are nearby and easy to locate.
  • Another Guardian is leaving...
  • You are wasting time, humans. There are more links to sever.
  • Two cores destroyed. Only three more and the Cryptum should descend.
  • You are performing incredibly well. Funny. I imagined Cortana would try to stop you by now.
  • You have nearly released her hold on the Cryptum. One to go!
  • Ah ha! I did it! I did it, I did it!
  • I found a way to reach the Cryptum! Alas, proper access requires a more human touch.
  • Hurry, humans! Cryptum access is back where we first arrived.
  • There! Activate the override to lower the Cryptum.
  • Humans, you have to manually activate the override. Please exit your vehicle. (if the player is at the override in a vehicle)
  • Wonderful! We can reach the Cryptum now.
  • Oh no. The Cryptum, it's...
  • Cortana is blocking my master level access of this facility by way of a nearby communications relay. I need to open the passage way in the center... one moment!
  • She has sealed it?! She has sealed my doors?! No! Unacceptable! I can gain entry if given enough time. At least I think I can. It is a door, after all.
  • Humans, Cortana is about to leave. She is disconnecting herself from the Genesis installation.
  • Hopefully sooner than her departure.
  • Oh no, she's- hurry, humans, I need your help! There are two auxiliary stations that need to be activated, but I cannot be in two places at once.
  • On the upper ledges. Opposite sides of the room.
  • I need you to activate the two auxiliary stations or all my works is for naught. Hurry! ...please.
  • Perfect! The other one now!
  • Yes! And just in time. Cortana was about to lock me out. I will open the access soon.
    • NOTE: "Cortana was about to lock me out." doesn't appear in the subtitles.
  • A point of interest for you, humans. That sound just now? It was the penultimate Guardian.
  • Still present. Along with Cortana's Guardian. She is moments from leaving, however.
  • Almost open!
  • I have done it. I have opened the passage. Quickly. Join me on the platform.
  • The relay access is at the end of the corridor. You must simply interrupt the energy link.
  • Once the connection is broken, I will regain control immediately.
  • Oh dear. She has started the slipspace sequence!
  • Unless that relay is interrupted, she will leave, taking the Cryptum with her.
  • There! The relay! Destroy it!
  • I have control again!
  • Do you hear me?! I HAVE CONTROL AGAIN!
  • Constructors. This is a Builder facility after all. I was installed by the Builders! I SERVE THE BUILDERS!
  • You took my installation! I will take something of yours!
  • CORTANA says John before going into slip space
