It should be noted for all missions that even though the enemies are virtual, their weaknesses still apply based on their appearance. (So use shredder rounds for living enemies and Tungsten rounds for synthetics.) If you are a high level this will be very easy since most enemies cannot do much harm. Always remember your partners upgrades and abilities, much better to use all that is avaliable than trying to go it alone.
Basic Tips
You may get frustrated on the timed round where you have to kill a certain number of enemies in a certain times. The easy way is to play it through, figure out where it takes you the most time to get to spawned enemies, and the next time you play, send your partners there at the start of the match
Survival has a simple strategy, if you can revive your team. Once they die, sprint to the other side and revive them. Ducking down will almost garuntee your team will draw the enemies fire. (You have to make sure your team will stay in one spot or they will come to you and draw fire to you.) Try to take the enemy while they're distracted and keep up your team that way.
Hunting can be annoying, but all you have to do is learn the pattern. If you are having trouble with enemies that use immune, use your teamates abilities or just dont give them a chance to use it. One shot kills means they cant use anything, so using a shotgun with appropriate rounds will help a lot. And if you cannot down an enemy alone, kill every other enemy first so your squad will concentrate fire on him.
As for capture, just sprinting from point to point is really the best way, if you cannot find the points, spend one match just finding them then the next one take them. If you are constantly dying trying this, make sure your armor is upgraded (will shield enhancing of damage threshold increasing upgrades if possible.) If that doesnt work, make your squad go somewhere else to draw away fire from you and the point.
Any points I missed or strategies you think are better, give me a shout. Hope this helps.
