    First off, beat this first on normal so you know the level layouts well, it'll save you trouble in some chases in later levels. There's no runner's vision in this mode, so you'll have to do it all on your own.

    Don't go for the Test of Faith on Hard mode, as the usage of guns will make things easier for you.

    Whenever you come upon more than one enemy, either try to just run right past them, or take the gun from the nearest enemy, kill the next closest, and replace their weapon with your current one to keep your ammo at a max.

    Beyond the gunfights, there's no difference in the platforming parts, so make use of Faith's speed to quickly disarm enemies and get out of the way of fire.

    MugenKairoSolid solution, nice one. I am trying for Pro Runner now and with my skill level there is no chance of me doing Test of Faith at the same time. I would suggest to novice players such as myself to play on easy or medium first, pick up all the collectibles as well as Test of Faith then do pro runner on your 2nd playthrough when you know what to expect and can shoot the blues.

    Unlock Hard difficulty
    In order to unlock hard difficulty you must complete the game on easy or normal difficulty.

    Runner Vision
    On Hard difficulty, Runner Vision is disabled (Runner Vision is that color things red that you can interact with). Of course, to unlock Hard difficulty, you need to have completed the game at least once, so if you have a good memory, this shouldn’t be too much of a hindrance.

    Clues
    When you got no Runner Vision, pay attention to the locations and movements of birds and rats. They usually provide a clue for what you have to do and where you have to go next. For example, a flock of birds might nest on a duct that you need to jump onto, or a rat might run around a corner in the same direction that you’re supposed to go.

    Test of faith Achievement
    It is doable to go for this achievement on hard difficulty but if you want to have easier time you should try to get this achievement on a easier difficulty level. But if you are very familiar to the levels it should not be such hard challenge. The helicopters was what I experienced to be the hardest enemy on hard difficulty.

    ZordnilFollowing those videos it only took me two sessions (days) to complete hard mode, and im not very good at this game.

    SuneshaThat is great. Some parts can be tough in Hard Mode. I always hated the helicopters.

    Should only take a few hours, if you are an experienced player and know somethings about the levels and the general direction.

    Use guns, and even your slow mo if you need to.

    What I recommend for gun fight(because it helped me) is kill an enemy that is further from his team mates, take his gun, kill the enemy closes to you, and take his gun. May take a few times to get a good feel with it.

    You will not have the red indicators so if you don't already know the level i would recommend the second highest level, so you can get used to fighting, and the maps.

    Other than knowing where to go and handling gun fights you should have a fairly easy time, good luck.
