Not incredibly difficult, however I would recommend doing this co-op and having all player be at least lvl 22, so as you can all have the automated sentry gun.

The following class set-up is also my favourite to use:

Medic - upgrade this first until you are invulnerable to the Scorpion gas clouds.

Explosive Ammo - In my opinion the best special ammo
Armour - Essential later on, especially in the last area when there can be up to 3 Rhinos at once

Riot Shield - This is especially good when the Rhinos attack as one person can crouch and block hits whilst the other player(s) shoot into as much as possible.

Automated Sentry Gun/Turret - upgrade second as you will want to have two turrets as soon as possible.


I would recommend picking either the magnum pistol or the automatic one. Although the magnum is best if you are looking to complete all challenges as the accuracy challenges are much easier to complete with the magnum.

The primary weapon i prefer is the new one (maverick) and when you get it (third area) the venom x is a vital addition. Remember though, that the venom x will not take up a weapon slot, just like the soflam. Once you have the venom x use it when the Rhinos come and on large groups as this is where it is most effective and remember to pick up extra ammo which is dropped from scorpions and i think rhinos.

If you are used to the first extinction this is similar, but there are a lot more of the larger Red aliens and so many more Rhinos it makes the first extinction look tame. The two new types of aliens are the phantom and the breeder. The phantoms are blue large aliens, very strong and at times they seem like they are harder than Rhinos as they like to teleport about the place whilst they are getting shot.

Things to look out for.

Intel for the intel achievement, these are distributed throughout all areas of the map and are always found in the same place.

Always scavenge the little boxes as you can find vital flares to distract the aliens in times of need, hypno knives which make one alien per knife become friendly and only attack other aliens. I would recommend using these on the phantoms due to their strong health and strong attack. Also equipment such as semtex and claymores which come in handy.

Also be on the lookout for locker keys which are very useful and let you open lockers which provide you with a free weapon!

The Breeder.

When facing the Breeder, which will happen 3 times (i think) you must be very careful of the gas clouds that it expells as the Medic class does not stop these from harming you, and the machine gun like pellets it fires at you, as you can go down in under 5 seconds. The only place you can harm the breeder is its face/head, this is vital in the last fight as you will need to have someone constantly firing there.

When you are in the final area, the breeder will face you for the last time, this is where teamwork is essential. This is because the breeder, once harmed, will start popping up large plants which if not destroyed will restore health to it and make the process of killing much more painstaking and difficult. Watch out here also for machine gun pellet attacks and lie down behind the concrete structures to avoid them. Also don't worry during the final area if the breeder disappears at one point as she will come back, just after a wave of 3/4 Rhinos....

Finally, happy alien killing and hope this guide gives a good, rough description to you guys as this is my first guide and to be honest is quite rushed. So as i'm sure people will, please feel free to ask questions and provide some more information which will help folk to complete this. And make sure to notify me if there is any false information in this guide as i have only played this extinction a few times.


I know this is a bit brief but just wanted to get it out :)
