- "Colonel, everyone in Halvo Bay is going to die..."
- — Lt.Damon Baird.
The Destruction of Halvo Bay was one of the largest battles to take place in the early Locust War. Thousands of Onyx Guards and Gears led by Colonel Loomis fought against the Personal Guard of General Karn of the Locust Horde in the streets of Halvo Bay and Onyx Point. Colonel Loomis, an Pendulum War hero who spend twenty years fighting the UIR was not able to adapt to fighting the Locust Horde. The Locust who was led by General Karn who planned the E-Day invasion just arrived from his early victory at the UIR rogue state of Gorasnaya. During the height of the battle, Colonel Loomis had Kilo Squad trial in a military tribune without lawyers for a series of crimes. The Locust Horde military strategy contradicted what COG military intelligence and were unprepared for an intelligent enemy.
Order of BattleEdit
Attack on Halvo BayEdit
During the first initial Locust assault on Halvo Bay, Brigadier General D. Rovik was killed with untold number of Gears and civilians casualties.  After the death of General Rovik, command fell on Col.Ezra Loomis of the Onyx Guard. The civilian population started to be evacuated during this time, though many civillians casualties already escalated. Thousands of Gears began mobilizing across the city in defensive positions, manly around COG military installations and refugee checkpoints. Halvo Bay airport was used as an evacuation center before General Karn willingness the COG weakness to protect military memorials and civilians began exploiting them.
Evacuation of Halvo BayEdit
With the Locust assault under full way in Halvo Bay, the COG began evacuating the civilian population across the military town. From Seahorse Hills to Oldtown the COG set up evacuation centers for the civilians until the Locust began overwhelming the checkpoints across Seahorse and the civilians fled to the roofs of Oldtown. In Oldtown where the military parade celebrating the end of the Pendulum Wars was still set up, the Locust emerged all across the parade grounds. The civilian population began retreating to the top of the buildings hoping the emerging Locust could not reach them. During the evocation of Old Town, SPC.D. Yalovsky was killed when the Gear tried to save a civilian from falling into a E-Hole in the Wharf district of the city. Several more Gears officers where lost in Oldtown including Major.J. Moreno, who was corned by a Locust with a Cleaver.On the roofs of Oldtown, Sgt.N. Vietzen fell to his death on a makeshift bridge used by the civilians and Gears to get across the rooftops. On the rooftops, Col.S. Bishop was directing civilians to better cover when a Torque Bow round killed him. With the Locust overrunning the refugees on the rooftops, 1Lt.J. Corbin was killed when she was trying to get civilians to high ground. The Locust eventfully overrun all the Gears positions on the rooftops and killing the remaining Gears and took the buildings that overlook the Museum square. After heavy losses in Seahorse Hills and Oldtown, The COG military priority was shifted to defense of the Museum of Military Glory.
Halvo Bay Military Academy OverrunEdit
During the all-out assault on Halvo Bay, General Karn attacked the Halvo Bay Military Academy and quickly overran the academy grounds. During the attack on the Enfield Bridge, Pvt.W. Felhofer was killed while drawing enemy fire to cover his squadmates. Major G. Bixhorn was the highest-ranking known Gear stationed at the Academy was killed by a Reaver that left him mortally wounded, causing him to bleed out hours after being hit. After taking the bridge, the Locust assaulted the courtyard and launches a ticker assault that killed SSgt.A. Sullivan. Several E-Holes opened up inside the school that killed Gears like D. Andrade since they open up under them. During the room to room fighting inside the academy, Ragers where used by the Locust Horde and they were able to kill a great deal of numbers of Cadets and Gears including Pvt.T. Perham. The Locust killed all the Onyx Cadets and the Gears soldiers defending the school, the last standing Gear, Spc.M. Alexieff was killed by General Karn’s forces. The Locust still left a defensive force around the compound and several checkpoints front of Enfield Bridge and inside the academy grounds. The COG would send King Ravens on recon missions over the academy grounds to search for survivors, but none were found.
Seahorse Hills massacreEdit
During the battle for Halvos Bay, Seahorse Hills a notable and rich neighborhood located on the outskirts of the city was being in the process of evacuated. The COG army was able to setup several checkpoints and ordered all civilians in the neighborhood to have their I.D.s ready. But soon the Locust Horde attacked Seahorse Hills and quickly a massacre began instead of a battle. The Locust used mortars to rein fire on the Gears and the civilians they were protecting, PVT K. Sutton was killed when he tried to save a wounded comrade. The Locust also used Boomers to help overtake the defenses around Seahorse, a round from a Boomer took out PVT.M. Reid's transport and killing him. PVT N. Grachev and his squad also engaged the Locust but the private was killed by a stray bullet. The fighting reach its highest point when some Gears like PVT.I. Hogina commited suicide. The Locust Horde was eventfully able to take over must of Seahorse hills and destroyed the remaining opposition around the refugee checkpoints. The only remaining area of Seahorse that was not under Locust control was a single mansion that had it own defense network. The Locust used the refugee checkpoint outside the fortified mansion and set up a defensive barriers on the two lane street and raised their banner over remains of the dead Gears soldiers.
Battle for Halvo's Bay airportEdit
- "Colonel, Omega-Two just took out the airport Seeder sir. Sir can you hear me?"
- — A Gear reporting to Col.Loomis on the battle for the airport.
During the battle for Halvo Bay’s airport change hands several times between the COG and Locust Horde, Omage-Two commanded by Marcus Fenix was tasked with taking out very large Seeder that was located in the airport. The large Seeder was responsible for disrupting communications around Halvo Bay. Omega-Two was able to take out the seeder but when a Gear soldier reported to Col.Loomis that Karn is leading the counter-attack atop his Shibboleth with three seeders behind him. Col. Loomis did not care about the Gear’s concern about the counter-attack or what Karn was riding but ordered the Gear to attack and drive the Locust back into the ocean or face an execution. The Gear was killed live on the radio. The situation at the airport left evacuation there impossible. 
Fall of Onyx PointEdit
Onyx Point, a secret COG military island base located in the heart of the bay. The base contained a large garrison of Gears soldiers and fortifications around the island, Onyx Point also contained the Lightmass Missle. General Karn launched an amphibious attack on the island and leading to heavy COG losses. Captain C. White was leading Gears soldiers during the defense of the island fortress until his was killed by Theron Guards with Cleavers. CW2. Andius was killed by a sniper for trying to radio command for reinforcements. Several Kantus priest where used to support the Locust and they used their ink grenades to kill Gears soldiers including Pvt.B. Newman. After a prolong battle 2Lt.L. Zhang ordered a retreat to the central area of the base but was killed during the fallback. 2Lt.S. Garoon was able to shutdown the main elevator to Onyx Point main armory denying the Locust access to COG made munitions, Garoon was killed during his heroic act. After the island fortress was conquered, Karn left a garrison force in charge of protecting the island.
- "Karn's taken the port. I had friends station there."
- — Cadet Sofia Hendrik.
General Karn on top of his Shibboleth attack Endeavor Naval base and destroyed the COG forces located there along with two Raven’s Class Carrier. One was split in half and the stern of the ship was crashing against Onyx Point. The Second Raven’s class carrier was on fire still in dock at Endeavor Naval Shipyard. After capturing the base, Karn and his forces moved into deeper into the city where heavy fighting can be seen from Onyx Point. The destruction of the naval base left a negative moral effect on Kilo squad since they had several friends’ station at the port.
The Trial of Kilo SquadEdit
Kilo squad a Gear squad made up of new recruits, Onyx Cadet, and a former Major in the UIR of Republic of Gorasnaya, was placed under military trial for a series of crimes against the COG. Colonel Loomis ordered the four Gears to testified what they did during the battle for Halvo's Bay. Baird was the first to testify on their conduct followed by Sofia, Paduk, Cole and Baird himself again. During the trial, the Locust attacked the location where the courtroom was and the Onyx Guard had to keep them busy. At one point, the Locust managed to penetrate the courtroom, but were all killed and Colonel Loomis continued the trial.
A COG military convoy was advancing through Oldtown when Kilo squad led by Damon Baird was ordered by Colonel Loomis to help guard it. The convoy was protected by half a company of Gears soldiers. Kilo squad moving by foot towards the convoy noticed that something underground was beating them to the convoy. Only Ptv.Garron Paduk knew that it was General Karn. Kilo Squad battled their way towards the convoy only to find it was already destroyed by a group of Lambent Wrenches. With nearly half a company of Gears dead and the convoy destroyed Kilo was ordered back to the Museum of Military Glory to help defend it. Battling past the Lambent Wretches and other Locust forces around the convoy site, Kilo squad made it to an underground wine cellar. The Museum was located across the river under Locust controlled territory, hoping the underground path would help Kilo avoided unwanted attention almost worked except someone in COG command ordered that the Riverwalk district as free fire zone for the Hammer of Dawn and Kilo only had minutes to battle through it. Hitting an unexpected Locust Outpost, Kilo was able to overcome the defenses and Locust reinforcement around the outpost and exit the area before the Hammer of Dawn was used. Kilo squad now in the garden of the Museum of Military Glory found that the Locust Horde led by Kantus had besieged the front entrance to the building and killed all the Onyx soldiers defending the balcony. The Locust using One-Shots and Kantus to help defend the newly conquered area tried their best to stop Kilo from overrunning them but Lt.Baird and his Gears where able to recapture the balcony until Locust reinforcements arrived from several E-Holes opening up in the garden area and Boomers along with Drones started emerging. Kilo Squad was able to defend the area using only Locust weapons and the One-Shot. After securing the area, Kilo moved into the Museum to help Onyx Guard defend the museum.
Defending Museum of Military GloryEdit
Once inside the museum, Black-Four still reviling on the loss of all Gears defending the Garden was shocked that regular Gears are here to relieve them. The Onyx Guards dismissed them and reminded that Sofia Hendrik was still a cadet. Black-Four ordered Kilo to defend the Great Hall from any invading Locust, while they went to help defend the East Wing which was under heavy attack. Kilo squad, began setting up defense turrets around there barricades but they soon noticed that the Locust where also using Nemacyst in the attack.Kilo Squad was able to repel several waves of Locust troops attacking their positions but Black-Four reported they are losing the East Wing and need reinforcements from any Gears in the area but failed to state that they lost the Kashkur Wing of the Museum.
The Locust had fortified their hold on the Kashkur wing and had the elite Cyclops drones defending the hard point to. Kilo squad was able to defeat the elite drones and take out the Locust checkpoint and fight off Locust reinforcements from both sides of the Kashkur Wing. Now in the East Wing, Black-Four told Kilo Squad they are needed to defend the East Wing by themselves since they are needed outside the Museum grounds that a large Locust was attacking the Museum. Lt.Baird finding the armor of Nassar Embry was located in the East Wing felt it was his patriotic duty to defend the valued armor. Kilo squad began to set up several sentry turrets around the East Wing and waited for the Locust to attack. Kilo squad protected the East Wing and Embry’s armor from several Locust assaults until the Locust gave up their effort to take the section of the Museum. After holding another section of the museum, Kilo squad watched in horror as General Karn’s Shibboleth attacked the museum from the windows of the East Wing. Kilo Squad, moved from that position in the East Wing and went under the Museum through the archives and vault room and hopes of catching up with other Onyx Gears.
On the stairs of the archives, Baird and Sofia pressed Paduk on what he knew about Karn, Paduk was dismissed on what he knew. Kilo Squad now in the archives section of the museum had discovered an unknown group of eggs had been laid. Lt.Baird and Kilo decided they need to destroy all ten groups of eggs before they hatch. Kilo soon discovered, the eggs belong to a Giant Serapede that had killed any Gears inside the archives building. After clearing the eggs, Kilo entered the main area of the archives to find more dead Gears and Lambent Wrenches and more Serapedes. In the back section of the archives a group of Locust emerged with a Grinder laying down suppression fire for them. Kilo was able to take out both the Grinder and the Drones, during the crossfire a wall was destroyed that allowed Kilo to exit the archives and into the Vault room where a large Emergences hole was there and the dust in the room impaired the vision of Kilo Squad. Fighting in close hand to hand combat, Kilo was able to retake the Vault room and exit back to the ground level of the museum. In the hallway, where several dead Gears litter the ground, Kilo squad saw firsthand the aftermath of the fighting on the ground level that General Karn had taken the Museum and killed all the Gears there.
- "Colonel, some grub riding a monster just wiped out ever rifle at the museum."
- — Lt.Baird reporting to Colonel Loomis.
Lt.Baird reestablished contact with Control and told Colonel Loomis and gave a firsthand account on how every Gear in the Museum of Military Glory was dead except for Kilo squad. Colonel Loomis was unconcerned with the losses that the COG army is taking while defending the building, until Pvt.Paduk told him that Karn is responsible for destroying his homeland in the matters of days. Loomis still not over the Pendulum Wars, was glad that Karn could kill so many UIR soldiers and civilians but was unconcerned of Karn’s tactical abilities, Cadet Sofia Hendrick recommended using the Lightmass Missile on Karn. Col.Loomis became furious over a tactical recommendation from a Cadet and reminded the higher ups of COG command is saving that missile for a better use and ordered them to take out Karn. But yet again commutations failed again around the city. Since Lt.Baird knew that Karn could have single handily destroyed Halvo Bay and the COG, that they needed to use the Lightmass Missile on Karn. Both Baird and Sofia knew the creator of the missile and decided the Lightmass Missile was the best course of action. Paduk who survived a Lightmass missile blast before radio to control their plan of attack but since comms are still down they got no reply back. Sofia told Baird they need the Targeting Beacon, the launch codes then opening the missile silo in person in ordered to the missile can be used.
Retrieving the beaconEdit
- "Colonel, I’m an Academy cadet. I had to see if my friends were alright."
- — Cadet Sofia Hendrik during her testimony.
After the lost of the Museum of Military Glory to Karn’s forces, Kilo squad traveled through to the sewers to get to the Halvo Bay Academy, where Professor Elliot who created the Lightmass Missile had his lab located. Kilo Squad not finding any opposition in the sewers since the invading Locust troops where on ground level. Outside of Enfield Bridge, Sofia discovered in horror that the academy was overrun and that all her friends might be dead. Sofia claimed that Kilo squad assaulted Enfield bridge while low on ammo and without accesses to Longshots while the Locust launched a heavy Reaver assault on Kilo’s assault on the bridge. Kilo squad was able to retake the bridge and destroyed Locust aerial and ground oppositions. After taking the bridge, Kilo moved into the courtyard where the former headmaster had left a defense system that was place during the Pendulum Wars in case of a UIR invasion of Halvo Bay. Kilo squad had only minutes before the nerve gas in the courtyard killed everyone in it. In the courtyard, the Locust had setup defensive area defended by a turret with Boomers and Drones. After clearing the courtyard, Ragers entered the fray and Kilo was almost unprepared to face the transforming Locust. Kilo battled several more Ragers and Drones outside the R&D labs. Kilo was able to get inside the labs before the nerve gas killed them. Once inside, Sofia who was still in the security system that allowed Kilo squad to gain accesses to the Lightmass Missile beacon but Locust forces where already inside the labs. Cadet Hendrick also admitted that her relationship with Professor Elliot was more than a student-teacher relationship. Inside the labs, the fires had unleashed chemicals effected Kilo’s vision and they had to battle their way into the heart of the lab where the beacon was located. The beacon ended up turning out to be a Bot unit. With the bot activated but the cloaking field disable due to the Academy’s anti-cloaking field, Kilo had to escort the Bot out of the Academy’s compound. In Monroe Commons, the Bot sent out a loud signal if the Locust was dictated in the area. Having to defend the bot from wave after wave of Locust assaults and Nemacyst targeting Bot due to a signal coming from it, Kilo was able to save the bot from destruction. After clearing the Monroe Commons and the adjacent courtyard. A King Raven on a recon mission over the Academy was shot down and crashed over the main courtyard. Kilo needing to exit academy grounds left towards the main exit into the courtyard but found themselves out of ammo and restoring to their Snubs pistols. Kilo squad forced into a cornered against an onslaught of Locust Drones and Boomers, was able to starved off the Locust and moved into the courtyard. A second King Raven flew over the courtyard and warned Kilo squad that over a dozen Drones where advancing to their positions. Kilo squad using the advance warning used ammo and sentry turrets to help defended their positions. The Locust sent waves of Corpsers and Serapedes along with ground troops that shocked the Gears of Kilo squad. The large fountain in the center of the courtyard sank into the ground and a large emergence hole opened up. After Tickers and other Locust creatures tested the defenses that Kilo squad set up, the rest of the Locust forces attacked them. In the end Kilo squad was victorious and left the courtyard heading towards Seahorse Hills, where Professor Elliott lived along with the launch codes for the Lightmass Missile. Cadet Hendrick was saddened to leave the ruins of the academy and the loss of all her friends there.
After leaving the Academy, Kilo squad made their way to Seahorse Hills. A rich neighborhood located in Halvo city. The COG army tried to evacuate all the civilians but they were overrun by the Locust. Inside Amador Park, Kilo Squad ran out of ammo but found Gnashers and Sawed-Off shotguns that belonged to a wealthy citizen personal armory. Moving up the street in Amador Park, Kilo ran into a group of Locusts that came charging at them. The Gears of Kilo squad had to move in close with their shotguns to take out the Locust in close range combat. The Locust in the end where no match for the Gears. Making their way through the area, the Gears took out mortar teams shelling Professor Elliot's mansion, which had its own defense systems. Knowing they couldn't get past the systems themselves, the Gears took an alternate route to the mansion, taking out the three mortar teams along the way. Finally, Kilo Squad reached the secret entrance which Sofia knew about due to her relationship with the Professor. Entering the mansion, the team found Elliot dead of a suicide and set Troy to work on cracking the mainframe to get the launch codes for the missile. Unfortunately, hacking in caused the defense systems to go off-line, allowing the Locust to breach the mansion. Kilo was forced to defend the inside of the mansion and Troy from repeated waves of Locust troops while the bot tried to get the codes. Finally, after killing many Locust, including a Berserker, the attack stopped and Troy got the needed codes. With the codes, Kilo left for Onyx Point to arm the missile.
Needing to prep the Lightmass Missile, Kilo Squad travels to Onyx Point on a Locust assault craft. Upon arriving on the beach, they came under attack from heavily entrenched Locust troops including mortars and turrets. Kilo Squad was forced to fight their way up the beach and kill all the Locust there before they could enter the fort. Making their way through the fort, Private Augustus Cole briefly takes control of a Silverback to blast through Locust forces in the motor pool. Making their way along the cliffs, Kilo discovers the nearby shipyard to be under attack and are devastated as they all have friends defending it. Kilo comes under fire from Locust snipers with OneShots and mortars from an adjacent cliff and have to take them all out before they are able to travel in an elevator into the silo where the Lightmass Missile is. Finding the silo empty, Baird arms the missile, but they get a report from Colonel Loomis that the squad Omega-Two had taken out a Seeder at the Museum of Military Glory, restoring comms. Baird contacts Loomis to inform him of the plan and he refuses to allow them to use the missile to kill Karn, telling them that it is being saved for a greater purpose. He orders Sofia to arrest Paduk and Baird if he resists, but after finding out that Omega-Two is pinned down at the Museum and is an hour away from evac, Kilo decides to complete their mission and help them as they can get to the museum a lot quicker. Making their way out through a service entrance, Kilo comes under attack from Locust forces and takes them down. Fearing that the Locust may get to the inside of the silo and the missile and disarm it, they have Troy seal the door to the silo from the outside. Reaching the beach, Kilo comes under attack from three waves of Locust troops arriving in assault craft. Killing them all, Kilo leaves the island on one of the Locust assault craft.
Launching the MissileEdit
Figuring that after Omega-Two took out a Seeder at the Museum of Military Glory, Karn would want to deal with them personally, Kilo takes the assault craft to Old Town to find a good position to launch the beacon from and rescue the besieged squad. Traveling through the streets, Kilo comes upon a variety of enemies including a Serapede, juvenile Corpser and Lambent Wretches. After fighting off a Locust patrol, they decide to take their search for a good location to the rooftops, but while waiting for Troy to open a door, come under attack by Ragers and Maulers. After killing them all, they get through the door to find that the people of Old Town tried to hide from the Locust on the rooftops and were slaughtered. Fighting their way across the rooftops, Kilo learns that Omega is in increasing trouble and that Colonel Loomis is planning to launch a massive attack on the Museum, something they feel is a trap. Finally reaching and clearing the perfect spot on a rooftop, Baird dispatches Troy to get into position but before he can fire, Colonel Loomis contacts Sofia demanding to know where they are. Although Sofia initially lies and says they are aiding another unit, Baird tells Colonel Loomis the truth, feeling that if they don't fire, everyone in Halvo Bay will die. Colonel Loomis threatens to execute Baird if he doesn't back down, but with the agreement of the rest of Kilo, Baird fires the Lightmass Missile anyway. The missile destroys the Museum and kills hundreds of Locust, Karn and Shibboleth presumably among them leaving a huge crater. Omega-Two contacts Kilo to inform them that while they were a little roasted by the blast, they successfully escaped. However, instead of backing down with Karn's apparent death, the Locust attack Kilo's roof with a massive force in successive waves. After a long fight, Kilo eventually manages to kill all of the Locust and are picked up by a furious Colonel Loomis.
Attack on the courthouse and fall of KarnEdit
Determining Kilo to be guilty, Colonel Loomis prepares to execute them, but before he can, the Locust finally break into the courtroom and kill all of the Onyx Guards there. A Drone takes Colonel Loomis hostage, but Private Garron Paduk grabs a Longshot Sniper Rifle and after a moment's hesitation to decide who to shoot, kills the Drone and saves Colonel Loomis' life. Colonel Loomis flees, leaving Kilo to fight alone. Eventually Kilo kills all of the Locust in the courtroom and battles their way through the courthouse towards a landing pad outside where a King Raven is waiting. Coming outside, Kilo is joined by Colonel Loomis and they finally battle their way to the landing pad only for Karn and Shibboleth, who somehow survived the Lightmass Missile, to arrive and destroy the King Raven. Karn starts by firing Shibboleth's machine guns at the humans, but after they disable them, he tries using an incendiary grenade launcher on them. Kilo and Colonel Loomis disable the launcher and Karn retreats to a nearby rooftop where he calls for reinforcements. After the reinforcements are fought for awhile, Karn rejoins the battle, trying to trample the squad and launching Digger bombs from Shibboleth's mechanical leg at them. The squad destroys the mechanical leg and Karn retreats again, launching Nemacysts and calling in more reinforcements. After some time has passed, Karn once again joins the battle, using his machine guns against the humans again. Kilo and Colonel Loomis disable the guns and when Shibboleth screams, focus their fire on the beast's head, joined by nearby King Ravens. Finally, the combined fire kills Shibboleth, leaving Karn heavily wounded. As Kilo Squad wonders what to do with him, Colonel Loomis shoots General Karn in the head with his Boltok Pistol, killing him. Afterwards, Colonel Loomis drops the charges against Kilo Squad, but demotes Lieutenant Baird to Private and destroys any chance of him being an officer again.
Loomis' Last StandEdit
After Kilo squad took out the Shibboleth and Col. Loomis executed Karn, the COG army reorganized around the Tyran war memorial and prepared for a counterattack into the heart of the city. Colonel Loomis personally led a counterattack into the heart of Halvo Bay with the Onyx Guard, hoping the death of their General would demolish the Locust’s Horde moral. Colonel Loomis and his Onyx Guard were trapped around the Regency Hotel. Loomis and his men were killed to the last man. The COG Engineering Corps would later recover his remains and erected a statue of him declaring him the “Hero of Halvo Bay”. Even Damon Baird considers him a hero for his final actions but still a “dick”. 
After the battle was over, Dizzy Wallin, along with the COG Engineering Corps, fireman and Gears returned to the city to bury the dead and prevent diseases. Dizzy Wallin and corporal Lennard Parry rescued a woman named Rosalyn who would later become Dizzy's second wife and the mother of Teresa Wallin and Maralin Wallin. During the cleanup effort, some Gears were killed by Locust forces, Sergeant M. Blythe was killed during one of these actions while defending engineers. COG Engineers would discover Colonel Loomis' remains and left a statue of him declaring him the “Hero of Halvo’s Bay”.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- "Hey, Jack.
One of the Judgment writers here. Just wanted to note something re: http://gearsofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Destruction_of_Halvo_Bay The page lists story conflicts between Coalition's End and Judgment, as follows: Conjecture: Gears of War: Coalition's End has the destruction of Halvo Bay taking place three months after E-Day, not one. And the Mark 2 Lancer was introduced one year after E-Day not one month. Just for the record--and we really tried to be careful about this--the fall and the destruction of Halvo Bay were, at least in our minds, two different events. The first took place during the events of Judgment (which was actually supposed to be a little closer to six weeks after E-Day; the marketing materials rounded down as "one month" sounded a little snappier), the latter occurred another month or two later as described in Coalition's End. At that point in time, additional Locust forces breezed through Halvo to finish the work that Karn hard started. This is why the statue in Aftermath refers to Loomis's death taking place in Halvo; he stayed behind in an eventually failed attempt to save the city he had already lost. Tragic, right? Anyway, just wanted to chime in to say that Tom and I think the work you guys are doing unpacking the little bread crumbs of quiet story that we left scattered around GOWJ is nothing short of amazing. And this site was nothing short of invaluable when it came to a forgotten fact or a misremebered date during the writing process. The work done by everyone at Gearspedia made it a hell of a lot easier for us to write a story that would fit cleanly within the existing universe. There's something kind of beautiful in that. Keep it up! All best, Rob Auten"
