This is more of just tips than a guide but I figured these will help.

Your 7 saves should be spaced out to avoid lengthy replays (obviously)
Personally I saved 1: ch4 right before entering the marrow
2: ch7 right before boss fight with Stefano
3: ch9 right before cabin fight (save where crank puzzle is)
4: ch13 before leaving the safe house (the second one, not the one in the marrow)
5: ch14 right after escorting Hoffman
6: ch15 right after Theodore boss fight
7: ch16 right before final boss fight (last save point in the game)
You can variate as you see fit but this worked for me (I prefer having safety at the end)

A few tips:
You dont have to do a ton of looting in the game but it is suggested to go for a few things.
There is 2 pistol ammo pouches and a shotgun pouch in ch3, they will make your life a little easier. Look up a guide on pouches and get the ones that are not to far out of the way on your adventure. I ended up with 4 pistol pouches, 2 shotgun, 1 crossbow, and 1 syringe.

GO FOR KEYS: The game does not troll you with gel in the lockers. It provides a ton of crafting materials and ammo. I ended with about 22 opened lockers and easily could have had more. Typically i would run a circle on the open levels going clockwise picking up loot and keys that were on the way before continuing the main mission.

Save ammo: if you can sneak, then sneak. If you can run, run. Avoid fights as often as possible to stay filled with ammo. If you conserve well enough you can cheese the later sections of the game (this is what I did cause I was so ready to beat it lol). By cheese I mean spamming shotgun stomp or using smoke/stun bolts to open gates instead of clearing out the rooms.

Make use of stealth sprinting. I really do not see people using this but it helps out so much when your trying to stealth through a room. You can run to cover even when crouched by hitting the (B) button when a chevron or white ^ is shown. pick up this skill and even enemies on crazy patrol patterns will fall victim to you.

Crafting health items in the field use the same amount of materials as it does at a work bench so do not be afraid to do so. On the other hand, try not to craft anything else unless it is at a workbench. It requires way to much to field craft ammo

In chapter 4, when you have to wait for the door to open in the marrow, you can just stay on the ladder (have left hand on the second to top handle of ladder) and wait out the timer. Takes a while but you are completely safe and save a ton of ammo. Plus those witches are best avoided at all times anyways

In chapter 5 boss fight, did you get the achievement for avoiding this fight? Well do it again! To make sure she does not catch up to you and cut you in half while your opening the door, as the fight starts run to the left and bait her into the cage (make sure she enters from the side further away from the building). As soon as she enters (she takes a second to knock down the first side) run out and run around the left of the building, shooting the barrels along the way. The second set of crates has a barrel behind them to speed thing up. You should have enough time to pick up both explosive bolts and open the door unharmed. You are able to take one hit before opening the door if you are a little slow.

Chapter 8 boss Stefano can be stunned with electric bolts when he is teleporting to you. Just use shotgun until you run out (if you run out) and he should be cake. Also if you saved an axe it will take a huge chunk of his life in second phase.

Chapter 9 prison area was rough at first. Personally before grabbing the crank I killed everything behind bars to make everything easier. A headshot from the spike bolts should 1-hit most everything. Once you grab the crank a witch will be in the center room, go for stealth if you like but i just shot an explosive bolt then ran to crank room till she resumed patrol and repeated that until she was dead. ( I do not like to take risks against witches cause they will destroy you if your not careful). Do not forget the pouch that is in the room she came from and the key in a cell opposite of crank room.

Chapter 10 cabin fight (lot of re4 throwbacks). Use Torres as bait, you just have to heal her if she loses all her health, no worries of game over (unlike Joseph). Try to just use pistol here until the witch shows up, then do what you got to do to kill that monster (I still had explosive bolts and also saved the explosive barrel for her too!). Then just shotgun the crawlers and you should be good to go! Later in this section try to be as stealthy as possible getting to the hide out. If you do get spotted (like I did) just run for the hatch and use the open area to fight the lava men. Either shotgun stomp or stun stomp them, just time it to where they are not flaming when you go for the kill.

Chapter 11: You can use smoke bolts to hide your self while the door is opening in case you get caught in the lab area. Also pick up the med pouch upstairs too. Boss fight! I ended up using every bit of ammo (excluding gun powder, try to never use gun powder outside of a workbench) on O'neal. Luckily if you run out of ammo, just circle the arena to find pistol ammo given to you at random locations (this would be after you picked up all original loot in the arena). I would suggest not destroying the flamethrower so you can keep your distance, if you do destroy it he will constantly try to melee you and it gets very frustrating. Right after the fight be sure to make a couple clips worth of pistol and shotgun ammo in Sebastion's room.

Chapter 12: If you have not saved since before chapter 10 (like I did) then take this area very slowly. If you get spotted try to finish the enemy off quickly with out running around. Last thing you want to do is attract more enemies. The big guys that explode will one hit you if your not at full health so make sure you stealth kill the one by the crank. In the 3rd section, if you get spotted you can opt to just run for the stairs, just make sure you craft some syringes in case the crawlers hit you.

Chapter 13: Escorting Hoffman is not a walk in the park. Use the pistol as soon as one spawns going for headshots as much as possible. When you get overwhelmed pull out shot gun, 2-shots to the head always gave me a kill. Use smoke/stun bolts if it gets out of hand. Just make sure you can craft about 2-3 smoke bolts and 4-5 stun bolts for chapter 14.

Chapter 14: In the first section of enemies just sneak right and stealth kill the lava guy by the lever. Sneak to the door and run through when/if you get caught. In the second area just run run run till you get to the area on the right where you shoot to stop the flames. After shooting it place a shock bolt here and another right under the crank then start the crank and hit (A) as fast as you can and you should make it through unscathed (use a smoke if you just want to feel safe). In the third area I just used the rest of my smoke bolts to hid from the crawlers since you really will not need them anymore. Boss fight! Keepers should not give you to much trouble, use the sniper if you got it since for the first time you finally get free ammo for it. Use whatever you have to just make sure you save 2 shock bolts for Laura. For Laura just run around until you give her the slip and turn each valve. Once the fire is ready use a stun to keep her in center and pull the lever. Repeat and boom chapter complete.

Chapter 15: By this point hopefully you have saved a lot of ammo and can just run through this section. I literally just shotgun stomped every enemy here until telephone booth boss. Once you get to him you are free to use up whatever ammo you have or any bolts you can craft. Just try to save pistol ammo.

Chapter 16: Final boss, for me pistol was the easiest weapon to use (burst pistol if you have dlc) just dodge left or right avoiding arm slams and returning fire when possible. It was not a quick fight for me but was pretty easy. If you do run out of ammo she will spawn the baby spider things to replenish your supply. If you find your out of ammo and she is not spawning more, double check the area to see if there was something you missed and check that each type of gun is empty (for example laser sight pistol and burst pistol do not share loaded clip).

And with that the rest should be smooth sailing! Let me know if there are any spots your stuck on and I will try to help as much as possible. This is my first guide(tips really) so feedback would be appreciated! Thanks and good luck on your runs!
