Step 1: Complete Game On Hard

Start on a new campaign on hard. The game is a breeze and there are only a few tough parts throughout the campaign. Use cover to your advantage, attack enemies in weak spots, and save explosives for tougher enemies. We've included some ways to get through the levels to make this (P) a whole lot easier for you.


Wasps: These are small drones that fly in groups in the air. Take them out quickly before they can do too much damage to you. They're very easy to defeat with a good old shotgun blast to the face.

Medium-sized robotic spiders. To take them out, you have to flank them and expose their weak spot which is behind them. When you have flanked them, your team mates will shoot at it's weak spot while it is distracted by you.

The main enemy of the game. They look like a robotic human with a minigun. They're pretty tough but they seem to focus their fire on the AI more than on you so they shouldn't pose too much trouble. Take them out with a Pipe Bomb for best results. You can also use grenades, grenade launchers and RPGs as these are also very effective against them. Make sure you hit the weak spot of the Terminator that is in the middle of it.

H-K: A large flying ship that is pretty much a boss you encounter a couple of times in the game. It is accompanied by lots of wasps and can only be taken down by an RPG. First you want to eliminate some of the wasps because they will damage you a lot when you are trying to shoot the H-K as you are exposing yourself. Once you have a clear shot, aim and fire at the H-K. Repeat until the boss is dead. As long as you don't miss more than a shot or two this enemy is a breeze to defeat.
