Then, immediately Cryo Bomb your own base. Once you reactor level in the upper right corner goes to 4 then, stop the 3 reactors from building and recycle them. You will get your money back, and the you’ll have your reactor level and 4 reactors.Conserving units hint:The following is a great way to save valuable units, such as Spartasn or The Prophet of Regret. Also, this works especially well with the Covenant Base (Prophet of Regret). When you officially make the Prophet or a Special Elite unit, make them stand exactly where they spawned from in the base. Then, select the base and choose “Lock”. The Claws will interlock with each other, trapping your character in there. He will stay safe from enemy fire, but if an enemy gets within range, he will go out and fire. Then you will simply have to put your character back in there. Note: You will have to keep enemies at bay so he will not go out. It still saves money and time.”The Real Winner” achievement hint:On mission 4, look just north of the starting point to see a tower with the Black Box at the bottom. Down there is a door behind which Adam (a small child) is trapped behind. Highlight the door and press A to open it, then clear a path to the transport for Adam.
