Playing either campaign on Extreme is tough, but the second one is definitively tougher since you'll face multiple Elites and sometimes multiple Elites at once. Doing this campaign on a lower difficulty first helps a lot.
Remember to always use slo-mo and take cover. Prioritise your weapons. Weapons like the Type-7, ASP, HV Penetrator, Type-12 are very useful and powerful and rank higher than the submachineguns. The shotgun can be handy at close range (like, in their faces!), but should also be avoided when range comes into play. The pistols are also very useful!

A good way to horde more ammo for powerful weapons (or every other 'dropped' weapon) is to NOT to already have the weapon in your inventory when you're picking it up.
Instead swap the power weapon with a different gun and then pick up the second one, then pick up the power weapon you first dropped.
This will give you MORE ammo than if you were to pick up the second one, while still having the first one in your inventory.
This is because the game gives you a bunch of ammo if you pick up a different gun, but less ammo if you already have the weapon in your inventory. Weapons YOU drop will keep their ammo!

If you swap your shotgun for the Penetrator, you'll get 75 rounds. If you pick up a second one you'll only get 10 more, giving you a total of 85.
But if you had swapped back for the shotgun and THEN picked up the second Penetrator, you would have had 2x 75 rounds, totalling 150 rounds!
NOTE: these must be weapons DROPPED by enemies, not the ones that are lying around for you to find!
