The difference in difficulty from Hard to Survivor? (NO SPOILERS)

10 replies 1504 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

I am just curious how noticable is the difference between Hard to Survivor.  I beat the game on hard, and instead of rushing to NG+ on hard, I want to start over on Survivor then Survivor NG+.

How much harder is Survivor from Hard?  I'm guessing its, a bit less ammo, a bit less supplies?

The game isn't even hard once you beat it the first time. I died 4 times during my first hard play through due to careless mistakes, and I've gotten to Tommy's Dam on Hard NG+ without a death yet.

 

I've probably jinxed myself now though. **bleep**' internet man.

It's a pretty good amount LESS ammo and supplies. I think health is the same, but I can't confirm. It doesn't tell you when to "grab" the enemy. Comics and artifacts don't shine.

It's a bit harder and you can't use Listen Mode in survivor and supplies is scarer than hard mode.

Question: If you out of order, beat each chapter on survivor through chapter select (100% of the chapter not skipping sections) and it displayed survivor as hardest difficulty completed. Will it carry over to the achievement?

well I am not looking forward to the sniper part and that spot where Ellie and David are attacked by infected in a really cramped area. Can someone tell me it is not that hard on survivor/hard? Or tips?

I just finished on Survivor, it's tougher with no listen mode, those areas are a little rough but not bad, the Ellie sniper area is easy you just sneak up around the right side and take em down from the back

Thanks. And the actual sniping thing? Is it harder? Or is that just the same on every difficulty?
