Save Marines and Scorpion Tank
Immediately from the start, turn around and face the street you just ran from during the cutscene. A Wraith is about to turn the corner ahead--wait for it to park, then launch both rockets at it for a quick victory. Now turn around and dart down the same street and follow it up to the Scorpion tank. Once you've caught up, hop inside (you may have to wait for the current driver to exit first), then turn the turret toward the center area and take down the enemies within. Watch out for a Ghost that'll soon attack from the right, as well as a Wraith in the far distance. Your current position works great for tar getting virtually every enemy, so don't bother driving around.
Drive Tank to Rally Point
Once you've cleared the area, drive the tank around the corner ahead, toward where the distant Wraith emerged from, to the west (try using the helper icon if you have trouble finding it). As you push up the street, watch out for some enemies lining the rooftops, as well as a wreckless ghost that'll tear around one of the corners.
Before long, you'll encounter a group of pinned-down Marines. Remain in the alley for protection and open fire on the enemies ahead, including the turret, as well as the drop ship. Once you've cleared the area ahead, pull up to target the remaining enemies in the area.
When finished, proceed along the same street and around the next corner. Immediately take down the three turrets ahead, followed by the Ghost, before focusing on the remainders. Once you've cleared the area, you've got a choice: Either hurry up to the other side of the street and proceed through the door (it'll take a few moments to open), or stay here and takedown the enemies that a gunship drops off. We suggest the former, but if you want to stick around and take them on, you're on your own.
Once through the gate, stop at the top of the descending ramp, as two Banshees are inbound. They'll fly right at you, providing a perfect opportunity to target them. Once done, proceed up the street to the bend and target the distant Wraith from here--this position also provides decent cover from a nearby drop ship, which will soon depart. Continue toward Dutch, as marked on-screen, taking down any enemies along the way.
As you close in on Dutch's location, a final Wraith will make its appearance--take it on head-on with a face full of tank shells. Now although the tank will be blocked by some debris, we're not done with it yet. Go ahead and exit it briefly and step toward Dutch, which will trigger a wave of enemies who'll storm through the nearby door. Return to the tank and take 'em all down with a few shells. Okay, now we're done with the tank, so go ahead and exit and proceed through the now-cleared door.
It's tough being back on-foot, isn't it? At any rate, there are a few more Brutes and assorted enemies ahead. Try grabbing a Plasma Pistol before engaging them, and use the various objects in the street for cover.
Help Dutch Defend the Rally Point
Alright, so a whole mess of enemies are inbound and you need to kill them all. Luckily, you have a bit of time before the first drop ship appears. As such, we strongly suggest grabbing one of the grenade launchers that the Brutes dropped, as well as the sniper rifle resting against one of the shields by Dutch. Now that you're equipped, let's kill some fools.
Although it may seem ballsy, the best course of action--initially at least--is to get the 'drop' (heh) on the enemies that the ship drops off. The ship stops at two places, dropping off some low-rank baddies at first, followed by some Brutes on the second. Approach the ship from below (but don't get too close) and either toss a few grenades or launch a few from your grenade launcher as soon as the first batch of enemies touch down (they'll depart from the ship's right side). If you don't kill them all, don't sweat it. Turn your attention to the second wave, containing Brutes--they'll drop from the ship's left side. Quickly toss or fire more grenades their way, then turn around and hightail it just behind the opening beneath the bridge--this is a good spot to target the remaining Brutes from.
With the first drop ship's enemies taken care of, a second will soon be inbound. For this one, it's best to tackle them from afar, so we hoped you grabbed the Sniper Rifle (near Dutch), as we suggested. Now we found the best location to tackle them from is from the top of staircase to the right of the Wraith (assuming you're facing it). You can get there easily via the right bridge. Once there, use the Sniper Rifle to focus on taking the Brutes down first--aim for their heads. Once you've thinned the crowd, focus your attention to the snipers, as well as a Rod Cannon-armed grunt on the opposite side (look for where the blasts are coming from to locate him). With the most dangerous enemies taken down, cross back over to where Dutch is to take down the remaining few enemies.
Okay, all the enemies are dead, right? That should just leave the pesky Wraith. We found the easiest way to deal with him was to cross over the central bridge, from where Dutch is, then drop behind him and hug the wall and attempt to sneak up on him and hop aboard to destroy him by either planting a grenade or meleeing the vehicle to death. Once you've finished it off (and any remaining enemies), regroup with Dutch to finish the level.
