This is about halfway through the mission on legendary where you need to get to one of the banshees near the elites and a shade to fly up to the platform on the side of the cliff. Fighting your way through enemy banshees, a shade turret and three elites while dodging plasma bombs from the wraith is one way to do it. Instead, I hauled ass across the ice on the hog, jumped out and grabbed a banshee, then flew up to the platform and went inside the generator room without killing any Covenant. Did the flood onslaught, then went back out to the platform... The Covenant were still there and there were no banshees... I had no way off the platform... Had to start the level over. This time MC killed everything, and the banshees were there on the platform after exiting the gen room. Anyone else see this?

I did that. btw - in my opinion that's the hardest part of CE, whether the original, PC or anniversary (just getting to the platform and then surviving the gen room flood solo on legendary.) I have all three versions of the game. Bungie rocks... :)
