3 of user Shale Dry posts had links hidden in full stops, giving the below links:
a. http://93208466931351102797.com/820933
b. http://93208466931351102797.com/428235

The contents of each are:

the 'url' is cyphered using Columnar Transposition. (http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/coltrans.php)
giving www.jchnsbykhodfppqhxunq.com/mgfxv as a result.

Go there on a mobile and hold it flat (facing the sky). then tilt it to enter the given arrows. if it fails with a red X near the end, refresh the page and try again.

After the cube you will face the chessboard at http://3dmvpa7rxzxhnefjxpm.com/d6we2y

Chess Solution: f7g5h7

Next thing: Circle Puzzle. found in the fall of Reach. Chapter 32. Word 570. Add .com at the end. We get here.
http://04592z-83.com/

Line up the circular 'firewalls' and input a 12 digit code.

The 12 digit code was the security code, visible on the home team page, '5XZLA7WYSB3P'
Having trouble? delete the URL and type in 'javascript:time=1000000' in the address bar and hit enter while on the page
Thanks to Fawkesequus for taking the time to write these out.

The letters in each of the pieces are assumed to point to xszqwikrnwapfbaqhepirfdktrndperboekkixyzxax.com which takes you to the waypoint homepage.
interestingly, if we swap http for https it goes the the hunt the signal page. https://xszqwikrnwapfbaqhepirfdktrndperboekkixyzxax.com

Appears to be Halsey.. but from where?! Damn it.
HALSEY RKO FROM OUTTA NOWHERE
Yea thanks for getting that on here for me NSA. My suggestion is since we have all exhausted most of our theories everyone should take a short break and come back at it with fresh beginnings as if we had never thought through this step (even though we have basically been stuck on this part for days).
Dead ARG is dead
Just thought I'd add that that same twitter account (@thornxbl) posted an image of a high res compilation of the circuit pieces: http://i.imgur.com/mhXU3Y7.jpg
