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

The purpose of this Banished outpost is yet unclear, but its significant energy consumption and thermal footprint indicate some critical function in Escharum's operations on Zeta Halo.

Forge of Teash is an optional side mission in the Halo Infinite campaign. It is part of the Connections section of the campaign. Completing it earns the player 100 points of valor.


The Master Chief attacks the Forge of Teash, a Banished maintenance depot.


The Chief approaches the Forge of Teash.

  • Weapon: "Banished outpost up ahead, Chief - and there's a lot of Banished inside. Whatever's going on in there, it's high priority."
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "All Banished within the Forge of Teash. Hear these words. The Tower has fallen. Chak 'Lok has failed us all. But be assured! We will prevail!"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "The humans will be found. Their presence burned from the surface of the Ring."
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "Harvester coolant levels critical. Open the vents!"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "New orders... increase security at all dig sites immediately?"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "The Conservatory is breached - but our work is not done!"

The Chief engages the Banished outside the Forge.

  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "We are under attack! Lower the silos! Protect the Forge of Teash! If the Spartan is here, take him down!"

The Chief enters the outpost.

  • Weapon: "It's a maintenance depot. I'm picking up a number of repair bays and fuel silos. Take them out and we'll bring this outpost to its knees."
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "The Spartan is here! The honor of his slaying is OURS!"

The Chief engages the Banished guards inside the Forge.

  • Jiralhanae Captain: "Protect the Forge with your lives!"
  • Sangheili: "Form up on me to defend the Forge!"

  • Jiralhanae: "The Forge of Teash will be your grave, human!"
  • Jiralhanae: "Teash was my home - I will not let its namesake fall!"

The fighting continues. The Brute Officer continues shouting orders over the loudspeaker.

  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "The Forge of Teash will not fail!"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "Peel him from his armor!"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "We end this today!"
  • Jiralhanae Officer (loudspeaker): "Kill him! For the Banished!

Phantoms and drop pods arrive, bringing Banished reinforcements. The Chief fights his way through the Forge, destroying fuel silos, and sabotaging repair bays as he goes. He also frees some captured Marines, who aid him in his mission.

The Chief sabotages the first repair bay.

If Ransom Keep has been completed:

If Ransom Keep hasn't been completed yet:

  • Weapon: "Those repair bays... they appear to be maintaining some sort of excavation equipment. Are the Banished... digging for something?"

If Excavation Site has been completed:

  • Weapon: "This equipment look familiar to you, Chief? This outpost must be supporting the excavation efforts we saw at that dig site."
  • John-117: "Then we're taking these bays offline. For good."

If both Ransom Keep and Excavation Site have been completed:

  • Weapon: "It's a second maintenance facility - repairing excavation equipment, like the other outpost we found."
  • John-117: "Whatever Escharum's after, we have to slow him down."
  • Weapon: "Let's do it. Go knock those repair bays out."

If the Chief sabotages all the repair bays before destroying all the silos:

  • Weapon: "That's a wrap on the repair bays. Now for the fuel silos."

If the Chief destroys all the fuel silos before sabotaging all the repair bays:

  • Weapon: "That's all the fuel silos. Let's deal with those repair bays."

The Chief finishes destroying all the silos and repair bays.

If Ransom Keep has been completed:

  • Weapon: "Nice work. We're two for two on maintenance depots. Whatever the Banished are after with this equipment, their job just got a lot harder."

If Ransom Keep has not been completed yet:

  • Weapon: "That should do it. Banished excavation equipment is going to stay inoperable a lot longer. Nice work, Chief."

If Excavation Site has been completed:

  • Weapon: "That should do it. Without this maintenance bay, Escharum will have a tough time keeping up his excavation efforts around the Ring."

If both Ransom Keep and Excavation Site have been completed:

  • Weapon: "We're two for two on maintenance depots. Without them, Escharum won't be able to continue excavating the Ring. Excellent work, Chief."

Mission is completed.
