Investigate the Base
With Annex Ridge in the lower valley, it may be necessary to use the large lift. Forerunner machines are guarded by Banished once you enter the facility, though.
Move closer and eliminate the hostiles
You’ll notice an opening at the back of the room. The tunnel will lead you to the main building if you follow it. Open the doors by interacting with this panel. You can also free the Marines on the second floor by dismantling their restraint generators.
The Fuel Silo should be raised
Go outside and take in your surroundings by taking in the view of the hill on the other side of the street. There’s a panel for raising the fuel silo. Shoot the power conduits to cause it to explode once it’s visible.
