During Halo Infinites “House of Reckoning” main story mission — toward the end of the game — you’ll be tasked with finding and rescuing the pilot, Echo-216.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through a confusing step in the “House of Reckoning” mission.

Find and rescue the pilot

Deep in the House of Reckoning, you’ll have to fight your way through several waves of Banished in two different training rooms. After those, you’ll head into one more training room. This room has a large structure in the center surrounded by UNSC gear. You’ll also hear the pilot’s message from his family playing in the background.

When you enter the structure, you won’t get any direction about what to do next — and your HUD won’t help. Also the doors will be locked behind you, and you can’t get out.

Once you figure that out, though, you’ll be in the middle of a tough boss fight, so take some time to collect ammo and grenades. Also, you’ll be facing a cloaked elite, so equip your Threat Sensor.

Frustratingly, the next step is right by the door you entered through. As soon as you walk in, look on the floor for a small disc. It’ll be glowing green, but it’s incredibly easy to overlook. Investigate it to trigger a cutscene and the boss fight.
