Halopedia doesn't currently have a walkthrough for this level; could you write one?

Extract from Mombasa. It's over.

Epilogue is the eleventh level of Halo 3: ODST's campaign in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Instead of gameplay, the level contains the cutscenes that originally followed the credits, which depicted the interrogation of Quick to Adjust and Prophet of Truth's arrival at the Forerunner relic beneath ONI Alpha Site.



Romeo is leaning tiredly against his plasma cannon. Buck and the Rookie pull him away from the turret to the center of the vessel.

They lay Romeo down and Buck pulls off his helmet. Romeo looks up, pointing at the corner where Dare and the Huragok are sitting.

  • Romeo: "We went through hell for that?"
  • Buck (to the Rookie): "Give him some meds, would ya?"
  • Buck (to Romeo): "It's important. It knows things."

The Rookie gives Romeo an injection.

  • Romeo: "Heck, Gunny... I wasn't talking about the alien."
  • Buck: "Mickey? I'm sending you a very special co-pilot."
  • Buck: "It won't bite. And unlike you, it knows what to tell those cruisers to keep 'em off our tail."

Vergil floats to the controls.

Dare walks to the side of the ship to watch the carriers burn the city.

  • Dare: "Looks like they've found what they're looking for."

Buck joins her.

  • Buck: "What about you? What about us?"

Dare holds Buck's hand.

  • Dare: "Win this war...then ask me that again."

Dutch presses a control panel. The Phantom's sides close as it sets off for space, leaving multiple Covenant assault carriers and battlecruisers to glass the city. As the camera zooms out, it reveals the Covenant ships uncovering the Portal. Fade to black.

Veronica Dare and a Marine walk down a passageway, the screen cuts the Marine's face from view.

  • Dare: "Lord Hood may have given you clearance, but it was my op, and it's my interrogation. We only captured one. It's very delicate."

The Marine is revealed to be Sergeant Johnson.

  • Sergeant Major Avery Junior Johnson: "Don't worry...(tapping a control panel)...I know what the aliens like."

The hatch opens, and the two walk into the interrogation room. Vergil is floating in the center, toying with an F99's Optics Package. Buck's squad is sitting or standing nearby. The Rookie is sleeping under some stairs.

  • Johnson: "It has access to the Covenant battle-net?"
  • Dare: "Limited, but yes. We're not entirely sure how it manages a remote connection to the w-"

Johnson throws a lighter to the Huragok, the ODSTs turn in alarm and attempt to interfere.

  • Buck: "Whoa, stand down! Stand down!"

The Huragok, still looking at the optic package, swiftly catches the lighter.

  • Dare: "Sergeant Major, please! It's extremely flammable!"

Johnson walks right up to the Huragok.

  • Johnson: "The Brutes. The bastards who put bombs on your buddies and killed millions of my people..."

Johnson sits down on a nearby crate.

  • Johnson: (grunts) "...they're digging a mighty big hole."

Johnson puts a cigar in his mouth.

  • Johnson: "You're gonna tell me exactly what they're looking for. And then, you're gonna help me stop 'em."

Easter Egg: At this point, if the right thumbstick is held left, one can see Buck with a Caveman which is sitting on a grating. Buck nervously picks something off the monkey (possibly a bug), and proceeds to put it in his mouth.[2]

The Huragok lights Johnson's cigar, suggesting a deal. Johnson smiles, and the Huragok clicks the lighter off, and the screen blacks out with the lighter's click.

{Legendary-only Scene}

In the Superintendent's underground data center, many Huragok are looking around the area, as one looks behind to see the Prophet of Truth arriving from above on his gravity throne, accompanied by two Huragok behind him. Inspecting the area around him, the Prophet of Truth stops to peer forward, smiles, and orders the Huragok to move forward. A large hole is shown, with part of a Forerunner relic located underneath. Several Phantoms fly around in the area, one approaching and moving towards the structure.
