There isn't too much of a difference in "Hard" mode versus "Normal." The game plays mostly the same, with more elites, higher threat levels, less resources and traders, and Okkar forces warping in sooner. When you go to difficulty selection, you can press down on the D-Pad to view the full summary of what you'll be getting into.


I used the Scout. The cloaking, as well as starting with the shock rifle, are very good tools for your hard run.


I recommend at least two enhancements, three for best effect.

- Fuel Conservation: Increases jump charge duration and cooldown by 100%, but as this is only a matter of a few extra seconds, it's well worth the payoff; you'll save between 0% and 50% of the fuel you'd spend on a jump.

- Sensory Overload: One of my favorite enhancements. You can't see the hull and shield bars of your enemies, but you'll likely be fighting them to the death anyway so it shouldn't be much of a handicap. In return, you'll be able to see every container, mineable resource, and unit on the map (turrets don't show up).

- Low Profile: Every location will have a jump suppressor, but this takes all the weight of having Okkar forces jumping in off your shoulders. With this one, you can take your time, manage your fighting priorities, and make sure to get every resource on the map.


Other than these recommendations, there isn't much else to say, except for a few tips:

- Losing the fight? Try cloaking to get out of a hairy situation. Even jumping out of the map when facing death is a better idea than fighting enemies when you know you'll die.

- Choose lower-difficulty zones. Less enemies, less credits, less difficulty, less of everything for the most part.

- Ancient ruins are your friends. If you're attempting a full hard-mode run, you likely know how these ancient enemies function by now. If you take the time to lure the small blob-ancients away and kill them first, then target the big, round one, you'll be rewarded with a wormhole of sorts directly above the monolith inside the temple. This wormhole can jump you ahead a couple zones, or even into a new sector.
