    To complete on delta the most difficult setting for Crysis. The following rules apply:

    1) You cannot control vehicle mounted weapons while driving.
    2) Enemies are hidden and are invisible on the map, forcing you to find them.
    3) Enemies speak Korean, and it is hard to understand what they will do.
    4) Enemies won't glow when they attack you.
    5) You will have normal binoculars, meaning that enemies will not glow in your binoculars.
    6) Your Nanosuit will heal you very slowly.
    7) You will die faster when not in armor mode due to the very low healing rate.
    8) You have no crosshair.

    To finish on delta you need to play with stealth approach because being attacked by more than 2 enemies at the same time you get killed instantly. This approach also discourages the use of jeeps and other vehicles (but no tanks) because that makes you a big target and you die quickly.

    The best solution is to move always in cloak and in the crouch position this gives 2 advantages: low target profile and slower cloak energy consumption. If the cloak energy depletes and you don't have cover just hold down the B button to lie down, in this position the enemy has trouble seeing you and in that time the energy recharges and than rinse and repeat the process.
    Another great tip is to use LB to enable armour just before firing the gun in cloak mode makes the energy not disappear while firing the gun which actually happens if you don't switch to armour mode, than you can switch back to cloak mode immideately after killing the enemy. The best weapon to be used in the game is the FY71, when you get the sniper scope you can use it as cheap sniper, don't keep Scar gun because the ammo is very rare in the game but there is plenty of FY71 ammo.

    Happy hunting.

    Edit: There appears to be some big and annoying bugs in the game.

    1) (If you are missing the TAC gun and don't know where to get it, read this) There is major bug in the final mission, when the island is nuked and you are instructed to go to the deck, before reaching the deck a bug appears if you stay in more than a few seconds in the lowest chamber of the deck when you run down the stairs, the scripts kicks in which appears admiral being attacked by the alien and he dies, if that happens after nuke and before getting TAC gun you need to reload last checkpoint or even restarting the whole level again.

    2) Angelr1pper reported that there's a difficulty glitch that happened to him. He suggest that before starting a new game on delta, go to options first and then to new game and select delta again.

    prowlerdanteFound a different game breaking glitch with the last level in regards to the TAC gun. After killing the two "arms" of the alien ship, my TAC gun "disappeared". It was in my inventory, and I was able to equip it, but visually it wasn't on my screen and it wouldn't allow me to land the killing blow. Had to restart the level all over again.

    ModifiedMag8I had to comment cause "I'm the Lorax" Just made me piss myself laughing. How long did it take you to figure that out? When you use the tranquilizer rounds it has a pretty long reload time before you can shoot again. And playing on delta I rarely used the one shot, I always went full auto. Sorry, that's unfortunate, but a big thank you for the laugh. I needed that. Haha.

    Im the LoraxLOL Well I guess when I started playing I didn't realize it and must have changed it to tranqs and I just thought the gun I had was a single shot whatever.. Yeah I felt like a big dumbass when FB TA helped me figure out the prob, total face palm! lol I was about 1/2 way through lvl 1 but I spent HOURS on there LOL laugh

    Solario32Sorry Lorax, but that was so funny. That slow reload would drive anyone crazy lol. F71 and precision rifle is a great combo for most of the game.

    FFX Brotherhood+1 To Lorax for making my day laugh

    The game gets so much easier when you get the Sniper Scope.

    Also I found going prone helps a lot more than crouching. Enemies seem to completely lose sight of you when you go prone, where as when I was crouching they had some sort of omnipotent sightseeing ability.

    Kuningatar VUnlocked with my first playthru without problems - Selected difficulty in options and when starting a new game.

    Prone and bush is superb tactic! AI is also stupid, you can cheesy them in watchtowers and huts. Also abuse cloak and prone - Cloak, kill enemy with headshot, prone and recharge, repeat! You can also easily skip combat and milk checkpoints.
