As soon as you've got control at the start of the mission, hop out of the chopper and sprint down the hill. A cloaked elite will start running along the lower path, from left of the gate. If you can shoot him before he reaches the gate, the elite will pause and look at you, giving you time to bring down his shields and finish him off. However, If you don't hit him before, He will continue to run to the right. He is still kill-able at this point, you must shoot him in the head once his shields are down. This isn't easy, and may be easier done in co-op.
