A point to know is that New Game+ cannot be used in this add on so don't try saving up loads of ammo and health packs for this difficulty.

There are only 2 chapters to this add on, one taking place in the mining facility from Chapter 11 of the main game, and the other chapter being from Chapter 1. Both maps are true to their originals but have extra rooms and variations.

You'll start off with a slightly upgraded Pulse Rifle and a new Patrol Seeker Rifle. You'll also start with the Patrol Uniform which has 15 inventory and armour (No DLC pack can better it, but have different suit specialisations).

I would suggest keeping this suit if you use the Pulse Rifle as it gives it a damage bonus. You can also find in the beggining a flamethrower but I tended not to use it as it's comparably weaker than the pulse rifle and has worse range.

If you have the Hand Cannon from DS2 Hard Core you will only need that weapon for the whole DLC.

There are about 20 Nodes you can acquire (Buying and Finding) and ammo is more or less in plentiful supply.

Make sure you upgrade your health as this is a very combat heavy DLC, and if you have the Supernova DLC pack use the Forged Suit and Plasma Cutter.

Also if you have the EarthGov Pulse Rifle from the DLC Packs you can buy it for free, sell your normal Rifle for some extra cash and keep all the upgrade nodes in the new Rifle.
