Sam is pretty legit, he helped me kill several of those runners. He throws brick, I grab em and smash their head in with no wasted supplies.
Don't underestimate bricks and bottles in this difficulty! They OP!
Off-topic: This is kinda in the wrong section tho lol
Mod Edit: Thread moved from TLOU Multiplayer. Thanks! - TTurtle
just finished the mode. and I gotta say that the only section where I died like crazy was the sewers, since that's arguably the section where you fight the most infected at once and they seem harder to take on with a scarce amount of supplies rather than people.
I got stuck at the end of the sewers where you gotta hold off a wave of em with Henry, and I only had 1 arrow, 2 revolver bullets, 1 bomb, 1 molotov, and 1 smoke. After literally 20+ tries on that part, I got out of it with my still 1 arrow and near death lol.
Other than that I just stuck to bricks and bottles as my main weapons and used stealth as hard as I could even skipping all the optional battles as well. By the time I got to the hospital at the end, I was so stingy with supplies that I had a good enough arsenal to just expend on them fireflies, killing em all in 1 try.
