3. General hints and tips
Things to look out for when playing Single Player:
Free Missions are optional missions that you can play in between the story missions. You can skip these missions throughout the whole game. You might encounter a few issues near chapter 11, due to not taking the time to level up. However, nearing the final moments of the game the difficulty feels lowered.
Remember to check out the shops once in a while after they are unlocked through story progression.
Enemies that deal great damage shouldn't be dealt with melee. Take as long as it takes to take the enemy down via ranged attack. Just have patience, as getting a death in the middle of a mission is VERY fustrating.

July 15th 2011 (GUARDIANDS BOOST ROAD) (NOTE: Remember I am not SEGA, so I cannot confirm this mission will return. This is an example of missions you will see throughout the game until servers close. This was however most recent as of writing and is a great example of how sometimes the last achievement is made easy.)
Distant Memory was added to the game. This mission allows you to reach the Final Boss of the DLC early on. Normally you NEEDED to have a Level 90 character in order to participate in the mission that the Boss was located.
With this new mission you can now be a level 1 character on a C-Rank mission to enter this fight. Note that a level 1 character cannot survive for long. However, if they take a buddy with them that is a high level, they can do all the work to assist in getting you the achievement.
This mission appears to no longer be available but there is possiblity that it can be available in the future for another event.
NOTE: In order to earn EXP you must get at least one hit on the enemy before he dies for it to count. This also applies with Bosses. However, for the boss achievements, you only need to be present. You can be dead the entire mission, but if someone in your party kills the Boss, you will receive the achievement.
