The Ambush Outside Port Farrall was the last battle that took place between the COG and the Locust Horde before the COG moved to the island of Vectes.

Order of BattleEdit


Six and a half weeks after the Sinking of Jacinto, Sgt. Rory Andresen wounded a Drone while on patrol in the woods outside Port Farrall. On the next day, the two squads, Delta-One and Sigma-Four are sent to locate and kill it. After discovering multiple blood trails, the Gears realized that it was a trap. They suddenly heard two Kantus monks crying out and the ground erupted behind them.[3]

The First AmbushEdit

The Drones and Boomers, around 30 or 40 of them came out and cut them off from the forest exit. They herded the Gears into proximity mines, taking several out. Sgt. Marcus Fenix directed the Gears into safe cover and assigned Sgt. Bernadette Mataki to take the Kantus out. As she ran off to find them, Lt. Donneld Mathieson contacted them from the CIC and told them that Bravo-Three was heading to help them. KR Eight-Zero also arrived, but was unable to assist due to the trees blocking pilot Gill Gettner's line of sight. When Bravo-Three arrived, they drove the remaining Locust into Delta and Sigma's line where the Locust were torn apart by chainsaws.[4]

The Second AmbushEdit

As Marcus got up to thank Bravo-Three, a second ambush occurred with more Drones and Boomers emerging from behind Bravo. As the three squads dropped back into cover, Pvt. Augustus Cole headed out to find and kill the Kantus since Bernie was not heard from for several minutes. He found her in a tree and she signaled to him where the Kantus were. She took one out with her sniper rifle and Cole hunted down and killed the second. He rejoined the rest of the Gears fighting the other Locust and forced them to retreat into a clearing where the remaining Locust were mowed down by KR Eight-Zero.[5]


After the battle, the surviving Gears collected the bodies and COG Tags of their fallen comrades as well as a large amount of ammo and weapons that the Locust left behind. Cole and Cpl. Damon Baird retrieved Bernie from the tree where she became stuck and Baird presented her a meat cleaver that he took from a Butcher.[6]
