Dont get me wrong, I like games that provide a challenging element in there scripting but, I have come to a part on FC that exibits marked increase in difficulty. I bought the game 2-3 months after its release. I was going to get 'PAINKILLER' as I had played both SP demos and thought that based on the demos 39$ CDN wasnt to much to spend on the game. Then I heard of FC. It seemed that I didnt know what I was missing, according to my friends who had played the demo. So I got that instead (FC ). I ususally start a game on medium difficulty, especially shooters and thats how I started FC. Just after the 'BUNKER' level I decided to re-start the game on the easieast setting because I wasnt getting anywere on medium. Now Im at the 'REBELLION" Level and Im finding it very difficult to make any headway. Am I missing the point of this game, is there a handfull of 'do's and dont's that I have over looked? Maybe Im using 'shooter' tactics ( shooter tactics = no tactics ) when I should be doing a little more recon? Funemental ADVICE APPRECIATED!!! THANKS Jas
No! I'm Spamacus!

Heh, yes. The AI will try to surround you and then you are done for. Always scan 360 degrees around you with your binocs to find people who are closeby. Once you have spotted them with the binocs they will appear as dots on your minimap. I suggest you don't engage anyone unless you have to. Try and avoid larger groups. If you must engage, crawl VERY slowly with the MP5 and kill them quickly. No one will be alerted. When near the beach, try to island hop to get as close to your objective as possible, you will have all that water between you and the enemies. This game really requires you to play relatively slowly.
Even in medium in this game ,some bits were Rock Hard lol. In other FPS this setting would have been called "Hard"catacombs what a pain lol oh yeah volcano say no more, loved every bit of it .Bring On FarCry 2 lol :bows:
Thanks for the help guys! I have actually been doing what has been suggested, I just didnt give it that much attention ( sneaking and sniping etc. ) I guess that Im used to SHOOTERS of old because I always want to jump into a fight with guns blazing. The stealth approach makes sense.
Love, Peace and Chicken grease
When i first played this game i had a hard time to. I had to take it r6 style :)
I didn't make it!
painkiller is more of arcade game shoot & run, FC is more of mix close to real life expirience , in real life you need to think , don't ya???
