The Jerome squad received orders to destroy enemy logistics system related to a network of portals. It won't take long till you come across the first one. Focus on the control transmitter of the portal, otherwise you will have to fight additional opponents. Once you use the portal to get to the other side of the canyon, you will face a new type of enemies - Reavers. This anti-air units are similar to your Wolverines when it comes to fire power. Use your Spartans to draw enemy fire and make the rest of your troops attack the selected target - the transmitter or the Reavers (you will be able to strike with Hornets without any problems). After destroying defenders and structures by the second transmitter, you will be able to build your own base. The most important thing to do is to restore your troops and build turrets (make sure to upgrade at least half of them to anti-air version). Once in a while, the Banished will send flying units to attack your base, so this way you will make it easier for the army to protect the base.
To perform further attacks you will need a lot of Hornets. The only drawback is that you will have to watch out for Reavers. Always send your land units to eliminate them, and your flying units should be able to deal with the rest of your opponents. Use the other teleport and destroy the third transmitter and two mini bases. Move forward and you will reach an area where you can establish your second base. Do it and focus on building production buildings. The enemy base is ahead of you, so prepare before you strike. You can also turn south and free the rest of the prisoners.
Once you begin the assault of the enemy base, make sure to place your Hornets on its back (in order to destroy the transmitter that controls the portal). Finish off the base and clear the area out of enemy troops. Once you use the last portal, you will come across a small group of defenders and the last hacking device. You will have to face Decimus once again. This time the fight will take a little longer, and after some time, Engineers will arrive. Use your Hornets to attack Decimus. He can only perform melee attacks, so all you need to do is watch out for antiaircraft units.
