This game is insanely difficult.....

This game is difficult. Not like Dark Souls but wow is it close. The bots are lethal and don't give you much of a chance. Anyone else notice that they are making games insanely difficult again?

On expert mode, you need to approach multiple-enemy engagements (particularly DUP Mobile Center battles and district showdowns) carefully, because the enemy will endeavor to flank you and WILL get behind you if you are not careful.  One important thing to do in this battles is to keep the entire battlefield in front of you.

 

The bosses are no joke on expert mode, either.  You just need to slow down, hide as much as you can and pick your shots carefully.

Go in Guns a'Blazing and you will die.

 

Learn to hide and snipe, rooftops are the best place. Learn distances for your powers, where to be for best effect, or any effect at all. NEON can be your best friend. 

 

Or take one enemy out at a time by sneaking around the particular areas, don't shoot anything until you find the one lone enemy.Sneaking up behind them will enable you to execute or subdue via a button prompt. Sneaky version ultimately is a good way to take down a rootop patrol quietly which doesn't alert other rooftop or ground or tower troops that will shred you to pieces.

 

Alway have a good exit plan. Upgrade those powers and zip away to safety!

 

Darting in and out of hiding to pick off, mele or target another way works to your benefit.

 

If you hear the waaa waaaa music starting, get out and hide until you recover. If you are about dead, safe away from bullets flying ----> draining smoke or neon or whatever else will instantly heal you.  (as well as refill your power weapons if they need it. Or change to a new one, etc.)

I'm playing on expert as my first playtrhough.  Haven't had too much trouble yet but I am very experienced with shooter games on their hardest level.

 

My advice, just go slow.  Pick off the easy enemies and low hanging fruit first in all situations, then go for the boss or bigger objective.    Take out all the dup vehicles and cameras before trying the missions too, that will help a TON as there will be less enemies messing with you Smiley Wink.   If you can get the area all cleared out (so you can fasttravel) before doing missions in those areas it also helps.

I didn't find Expert to difficult but then again I played as evil on my expert run. Evil has usually been easier in the infamous games. The big difference this time is evil doesnt get any of the healing perks that good gets. I suggest play as a hero and stick and move

Thank you for posting this. I've been stuck for while on the part "Defeat the D.U.P Reinforcements. I was afraid to start a thread asking for help because it seems that most everybody has easily defeated the game and I'm a casual gamer that won't finish this game anytime soon. I didn't want embarass myself by asking. I'm just glad someone said it. This game is quite challenging. I'm on the standard mode. Not expert.

I thought it was fairly challenging on normal as well. I don't play games on expert.

Specially on Expert, you have to take things slow. Running away is all part of the game and it's so incredibly useful, it's a must. Climb a building and pick off guys from above, it helps a ton.

If you get in a jam and run low on smoke energy, hitting a car to drain the ensuing smoke will NOT impact your karma level unless you blow it up with pedestrians within the blast radius.
