1. Tenebrous Tunnels

Seek out the source of the Taken blight on Mars. Complete mission "Tenebrous Tunnels." "We only have a rough idea of where the Blight on Mars originates.

2. Talk to Zavala

Speak to Zavala in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower. "When I think Taken and Mars, I get flashes of that first day on Phobos. We've learned a lot in a short amount of time, haven't we? Horrible, horrible learning. That we can't unlearn, now." - Ghost

Objective

Destination
The Last City, Earth

3. Kill Taken Lieutenants

Defeat Taken Lieutenants at the Barrens, Scablands, Hollows, Buried City, Valley of Kings, and the Rubicon Wastes on Mars. "You spend enough time on the frontier, you start to play favorites. Mine is Mars. The Cabal have all the smarts of a Tower Frame with its mem-cortex unplugged. Easiest patrol in the system." - The late J.D. Cao

4. Talk to Zavala

Speak to Zavala in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower. "Commander, we're getting a signal. Strong, stronger than any other Cabal signal we've heard before. It's coming from…Phobos. What's your order, sir? Should we scramble a Guardian?" —Tower frame in the Hall of Guardians, just before the Phobos incident

5. Fear's Embrace

Return to the base on Phobos. Destroy the blighted source on Mars. Complete mission "Fear's Embrace." "We managed to land a few Guardians on Phobos since your first mission, but none have managed to fully explore the base. The Taken there seem to have re-armed some of the Cabal defenses. Be cautious." - Zavala

6. Talk to Zavala

Speak to Zavala in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower. "Phobos has been a Skyburners fleet asset since the Cabal entered the system. In the years after the Collapse, the City had no way to contest any entrenchment from the armed and supplied legion. Never would have thought the base would fall the way it did." —Hidden report
