Academy campus uprising.
As you come out from a narrow alley, take cover against the short wall to the left and watch for a batch of Locust soldiers—and Theron Guards—in the covered area below. This shootout is pretty easy to deal with if you hold your position on the upper landing. Rain down with Lancer and pistol fire to take out the enemies below. Just watch out for the glowing tips of the Torque Bows the enemies have at the ready.
Just beyond the covered area below, the path branches left and right. Head left and stop at the corner before walking into the graveyard just around the bend. A few Locust soldiers will storm the graveyard, so hold your position and spray with fire to keep them at bay. Clear the yard, then cross it to another firefight.
Once through the next doorway, take cover and watch for fire from the left. There are two Troikas, one on the upper bridge and one down below it. If you've got the Torque Bow, you've got a good weapon to use against them. If you don't, you can find one near a COG corpse on the other side of the entrance to the area. While in cover, pull back the trigger to ready the bow, then quickly pop out of cover to let the explosive arrow fly. Hit the turret square and it should kill the gunner. Alternatively, you can hit the exposed leg of the gunner to produce the same results.
There are, of course, more Locust to worry about, specifically a pack of Grenadiers. Watch the passage on your left, where a small opening in your defense can make you vulnerable to enemy invasion. Guard that weakness in your defense and you should be a-okay. When the crevices ahead are cleared of enemies, continue forward, eventually busting through a metal gate to reach the next chapter, Imaginary Place.
