Order of BattleEdit
While patrolling along Sovereigns Boulevard, Echo Squad, under the command of Sgt. Drew Rossi, was ambushed by a group of Locust Drones and a Boomer. Echo took cover in the ruins of an old mall and closed the security shutters, preventing the Locust from entering. However, they had taken casualties, with Pvt. Harrie being killed, and Pvt. David getting wounded. Rossi and the other Gear fired on the Locust from their position, but were unable to get a good angle. The Boomer began beating on the security shutter, attempting to knock it down, while the Locust suppressed Echo. Delta-One arrived to assist Echo, and Sgt. Marcus Fenix and Cpl. Dominic Santiago went up onto a balcony above the Locust, and told Rossi to raise the shutter. When he did, the Locust entered the mall, and Marcus and Dom dropped down onto the Boomer, cutting into it with their Chainsaw Bayonets. Echo and the rest of Delta opened fire on the Drones, and the Locust fell to the crossfire from both squads.
Rossi called in a King Raven to med-evac David, while the rest of the Gears collected weapons and checked to make sure all of the Locust were dead. Dom put a full clip into the Boomer after noticing it was still alive, and then went to search for Harrie's Lancer Assault Rifle. He found former Sergeant Bernadette Mataki had collected the rifle, and she joined the two squads aboard the King Raven for the return flight to Wrightman Base.
