This page is a walkthrough on how to complete the UNSC Distress Call, Lancer Squad. It’ll navigate you through the necessary steps to finding and rescuing the Lancer Squad.
Begin the mission: Excavation Site
Distress call received from Lancer Squad. Rendezvous at their position immediately to provide assistance.
Where to find the Lancer Squad
Once you begin the fifth mission, Excavation Site, you’ll gain access to the second island which has multiple distress calls for you to deal with, such as the Lancer Squad which can be found northwest of FOB Charlie.
How to Complete Lancer Squad
As you arrive you’ll find the Marines which are a part of the Lancer Squad being tied up and surrounded by multiple Jackals, Grunts, and Elites. Here you’ll want to sit back and pick off the Jackals and Elites with a BR75, then move in with a Shotgun to clear out the Grunts which will then free the Marines. If you have trouble getting past the Grunts Shields, then shoot the Grappleshot at them to make them temporarily move it.
