Tartarus on Legendary
Has anyone got anu pointers on how to beat Tartarus on the last level on legendary? I've tried most things, and the only thing I accomplishe was two hours of wasted time running around shooting him before I accidently blew myself of a platform and fell to my death. I had most success when I peppered him with the Carbine, aiming for his feet. His shield went down after a clip, but it didn't make any difference.

Tartarus
First keep doging near the platform where Serg. Johnson is. His Beam Rifle will take down Tarturus's shields if he hits himm all 3 times. Next If you shoot him enough when his shields are down then he will say "Lucky Hit" Then continue to repeat. Watch out though because more brutes come to kill your guys(and you). One of these brutes has a shotgun. Use this when his shields are down. Shotguns, Needlers, and Plasma Rifles(not Brute Plasma Rifles though, they overheat too quick).

Before you go into the room w
Before you go into the room with Tartarus, go back to the room where you bust your friends out that had a few brutes in it. Get a fresh covey sniper from the foyer. Get on the spinning platform, no one pays you any attention from here. Aim at the crystal on tart's head to take his shields down in one shot, then another quick headshot, on an overheat, switch weapons and shoot. Sarge will also shoot him while his shields are down. The quickest way is with a Banshee, though.

Carbine works great
Carbine works great against him. If you aim for his feet when he is running towards you or standing still, you will get his shield down pretty quickly. Then you can either finish him off with the rounds left in the carine, or switch to a shotgun or something. The thing with the Banshee didn't work for me. Sure, I got it into the grand chamber allright, and i started shooting at tartarus, but his shields didn't go down. At all. oh, and btw, Seargant Johnson *never* manages to get more than tonhits on Tartarus. Reason is, he shoots so *censur* fast that he overcharges after his second shot.

yes i'm having this problem a
yes i'm having this problem as well :( Someone else on another site recommends using the carbine to take him down. To do this you need to stay on the middle level, and shoot...do not venture elsewhere while attacking him. When the Sargent says his shields are down, or when the white light (aura) dissapears then attack him with the sword or carbine, but take caution... good luck! -let us know if you have success, because i haven't yet :(

Shields and avoidance

The trick is to only attack when Sarge says his shields are down. The rest of the time, avoid him, since he can pretty much kill you with one swipe of that hammer, and shooting him when his shields are up is just a waste of ammo.

defeat tarturus
to defeat him easily get near the end with johnson in the scarab and you have a banshee when he blows the door up park your banshee get out and shoot of the wings then get back in and fly through to tarturus and all it needs is a few shots with the main weapon the shoot him with the secondary plasma shot the green one(B) and he should be dead. if you can not get the banshee this far then get into the room where tarterus is and start to jump on to the platforms which circles the graverty lift lift and you should find on one of them a super weapon but it is hard to to since it is near the top at the highest point.

Easy way to beat Tarturus
Make sure u have a beam rifle, u should get one in the earlier part of the level, and keep it. In the room before tarturus u can kill the brutes then pick up covenant carbine. Now in the room with tarturus jump on the HIGHER platform. u cannot fall off this platform, so it's safe. from here u can just wait for johnson to take his shield down and then shoot tarturus. U may get shot at by the other brutes that pop up but they are easy to take out. It can be done with just the carbine, but having the beam rifle gives u the extra cushion, just in case u run out of ammo. It's very easy to beat tarturus this way.

clarification - Easy way to beat Tarturus
By the Higher platform i mean the one that is circling around the room (Not the one in the middle above tarturus).

Alright first of all i know how you feel. After the fight with the before you jump on the platform leave the sniper rifle to the sgt your allies dont run out of ammo. when your elites go to get Tartarus you might as well watch. Stay away from close range weopons he will your ass. stay with your cov br but let the sgt take down his sheild.Go for all head shots and dont stick him make him walk over your nades repeat this process G.T.
