This really isn't a guides per se, but a few tips to help you along. There is no way of cheating this, and you CAN NOT use infinite ammo. So here's a list of tips that I used to complete the game on Serious difficulty.

1. SAVE SAVE SAVE! Nothing is more important than using both the regular save(start button) and quick save(back button). You can adjust the number of quick saves you want to have at one time in the 'Game Options' menu. If you're in a huge battle don't hesitate to quick save between enemy waves, because it's really easy to make a small mistake that will get you killed.

2. BACKTRACK! When you come to an area that spawns a lot of enemies, run back to where you came from so none of them come from behind you. Sometimes you walk through a door, so backtracking through that door will give the enemies a small space to run through and makes it easier to kill them.

3. KEEP MOVING! When battling keep running backwards and side-to-side(Strafing). They can't hit a moving target for nothing, so use it to your advantage. This don't work on the Arachnoids because of their Gatling guns, so you can just hide behind something while they are shooting.

4. USE THE PISTOL! On smaller enemies like the Beheaded Rocketeer/Cloned Soldier/Kamikazes/Small Spiders/ect, it only takes 2-3 shots per guy, so you can easily clear a room or area with a few clips. It can also be useful on MEDIUM to LARGE enemies too, as long as you are a good distance away. Saves tons of ammo. The pistol is powerful, don't underestimate it.

5. USE THE ROCKET AND C4 BOXES! You will come across GREEN and RED boxes during the campaign containing INFINITE Rockets and C4. Take advantage of this!

6. EXPLORE! Look around for ammo and flanking points. Knowing where the secrets are helps, but may bring you to secret enemies.

I included a video of the END BOSS on Serious difficulty with very minor spoilers just to show you how to kill him.

If you have any questions or tips please comment.
