23rd October – Harder Than Some Reach Challenge Commentary

As I said before, you can run past a large chunk of this mission to get it down quicker. As a quick guide:

  • Assassinate the first Elite
  • Take out the little camp there and grab the Active Camo
  • Engage camo and run past the first set of buildings
  • Pause inside the connecting building to recharge shields and camo
  • Engage camo and run past the next set, melee the guys on the corner and wait to recharge again
  • Engage camo and run past the big Rancor looking things, although they will chase you so just head down and keep going
  • Recharge when you reach the pumping station
  • Once you get to the pumping station go camo again and head left, continue along that wall and you can just keep going along the path

After this you come to the pylon, where you have to start engaging the enemy. Sit back and snipe as many as possible. Once you have to head over the bridge it’s easier to melee than shoot as weapons are so weak with Tilt on, so take out all the small guys then engage the big Elites.

As always grab a Plasma Pistol, noting where others are because Famine really sucks, and keep firing at them. You’re much better doing a continuous stream than one big blast I reckon. Follow up with melee if they’re jumping around too.

When you’ve taken out all the enemies two Hunters are dropped off. I stayed up on the raised walkway with the shotgun building in, and kept shooting them in the back when they face Jun. If they turned to me I went through the shotgun building to the other side and tried the other one. Eventually Jun and I did enough damage to take them down.

After this you can take out the few guys dropped off with grenades and sniping. Then move up and you’re going to look to camo and run through the next area. Make sure you snipe the guys in the cannons before running, but once you start just keep going, jump behind rocks if needed and at the end the final cutscene starts, and you’re done.

Easy peasy huh?

    Personally, I like “Long Night of Solace” for this.

    Really? I do enjoy the level, but it can be a bit lengthy once you’re on the cruiser I find (in Legendary that was the toughest section I reckon). What do you do to get through it quickly and easily Patrick? Would definitely want to play it more if I could. 🙂
