Don't board yet until it gets blocked in the end. Until then, go to the MG
posts and shoot all the enemies coming to the sides. Once it stops, board
it, go down, and kill the elite controlling it.
I grab as much rocket launcher ammo as I can, then jump down onto it from
the first bridge, waste all the Covenant on it, then go inside. Best tactic
on the Scarab is to attack from the rear on the left and right
alternatively, sweep the upper surface clear, and once that's done, venture
I just got past this, first try last night. I jumped down on the
middle very top from the first bridge I got to. I took an smg and a
cov blaster and was fine. The benifit of being on the very top of the
bug is that the enemys can't shoot you from below, and they have to
come up the back of the bug 1 at a time. While you can drop gnades
down on either side while the marines have them distracted. My shields
never even went down any. When I got inside I lobbed a couple of frags
to the very back of the bug once I disposed of the first few cov's.
Shields only went down bout a 1/4 of the way. Then thats it.
