    Here are my own tips and things that I've learnt through completing all of the other Call of Duty Games on Veteran Difficulty

    -Stuns and flash-bangs are a man's best friend, always use them.
    -Light Machine Guns (LMGs) are the best weapons to pick up as they shred through enemies and there always comes that annoying moment when you have to reload.
    -Grenades usually get me killed more than the enemies shooting at me. Frags have an absolutely huge radius in which they explode. Stay clear of them and always throw them back as they are not cooked in single player.
    -Always be cautious going around corners. Staying prone or crouched is a good idea.
    -Let your team mates go first, so you can see where they are shooting etc and also they have infinite health.
    -If you don't keep pushing forward you won't reach checkpoints as the enemies infinately respawn.
    -Don't rush in on Veteren, you'll get nowhere.
    -You can automatically lock on to enemies by pressing the aim/fire button. This is a very handy feature so use it.
    -Most Important thing for me is if you are really struggling with a mission or can't get passed a certain point and you've been trying so many times turn your xbox off leave it for a couple of hours or a day then come back to it. Trying to get past a hard point on Veteran while frustrated and angry isn't going to happen. Done it so many times where I have decided to leave it and come back to it and I've done it 1st time.

    I am aware that I haven't completed this campaign on Veteran yet, but I thought I'd give some pointers anyway :)

    Hope this helps.

    Here is a link to a full walkthrough of the campaign on it's hardest difficulty with full commentary throughout. This is by far the easiest COD singleplayer so far, but if anyone is having trouble, this should suffice.

    Hope it helps

    Dust to Dust:

    Most of veteran is pretty easy but this was the only level I had a few deaths on. It wasn't until after the elevator scene and the timer countdown starting.

    Once you are on the second floor (where your timer starts), you might struggle moving from area to area with the sheer amount of people. Luckily you don't have to. If you spend about a minute or two taking out the majority of baddies on the floor a checkpoint will hit.

    A good place to take them out is when you just leave the elevator and hide behind crates right next to the balcony. I stayed here for the whole time.

    After this checkpoint a new wave will run through and take them out from the same point. You don't need to save any grenade or anything after this point so just spam all you can at everything. After this another checkpoint will hit. You can now move forward with no real trouble.

    (if the second checkpoint doesn't hit then go into the casino table room on the left and take out the guys that come in after the civilians run through then head back to where you were)

    Moving forward I'd stick close to the second bar and take out the last one or two guys that run towards you before the helicopter attacks. Walah - it's plain sailing from here.

    Hope these tips help those struggling :)

    Misc DailyThanks for the advice. I'll be using it when I decide to try the mission again. I seem to keep dying when I run into the room where the civilians are.
