The Hard campaign is relatively easy until you hit the 'Escort Mission' sections. This can become incredibly frustrating, a combination of ridiculously stupid A.I. driving, the vehicles love of shooting themselves and you and long runs to get back in the action when you die.

My advice is this;

Learn where everything spawns, Rocket turrets are your prime targets, then Heavy armor (The big mechs), then Rocket infantry. Pretty much ignore the rest of the infantry.

Set your character up to have the machine gun, rocket launcher, repair tool and most importantly Det. packs. For me I found putting the passive modules with 4 on shields, 4 on speed (which also boost your shields) and the last two on repair.

Always try to move ahead of the convoy to plant all 5 of your Det packs where the rocket turrets will land, usually it will detanoate itself if you have put them right under the landing point.

I found if I ignored the Heavy armour then they tended to get caught up fighting my team mates, who are pretty useless except as distractions, they are also invincible, so if you see them fighting the heavys, then leave them to it : )

Where possible target the rocket troops, though often this will just get you killed so may be best to leave them.

At any oppourtunity, place yourself behind vehicles and repair them, by behind I mean the other side from the enemies.

For me, I tried repeatedly to be 'Rambo' and kill everything, but time and time again failed, following this advice the time I succeeded all I killed was two soldiers at the start and the two rocket turrets.


KingPliskin offers this advice on;

Run around the left side of the building as fast and as far away as you can. If done properly the heavy armour will not spawn inside to ambush the convoy. Then they can drive through on their own.


Whilst they still spawned for me, not actually being in the fight definately seemed to make the vehicles get through easier.

Finally, cross your fingers, there is definately luck involved in this, mainly due to how your vehicles drive.

Sorry this is a long winded guide for a tiny fragment of the game, but I'm sure it will be this section you get stuck on if any, best of luck.
