Not providing a level specific guide here, just a few key pointers to help you on your way. Here are some rules to remember when attempting this game on Veteran.

1. Be prepared to die. A lot. This goes without saying.

2. Look at your surroundings, look for where the enemy might flank you from. Don't just rush in head first. Experiment in trying out different hiding spots where you can take out the enemy. If you're dying a lot and keep going to the same place, it's probably time to change where you're hiding.

3. At certain points in the game, the enemy will endlessly spawn. A prime example is in the level SOG when you're pushing the NVA back down the hill, the enemy will constantly spawn at the bottom and run to the nearest cover. When you encounter parts like these in the game, kill as many enemies as you can then run forward to the next piece of cover before they can spawn again. Rinse, repeat.

4. Practice makes perfect. It's all about knowing where your enemy is going to be, and in what order you should kill them and where the best place to take cover is.

5. Smoke grenades and Flash Grenades are your best friend. Since the AI on your side is generally useless (no change from other CoD games then..), use your equipment where you feel is necessary. Clearing rooms or getting down corridors is where you'll need them most.

6. Having trouble on a certain part of a level and want to spare yourself the price of buying a new control pad? No problem. Press pause during the game and change the difficulty lower to get through the level. Once you've familiarised yourself with everything in that level, retry on Veteran.

7. Weapon of choice really comes down to your level of play style. But try to generally stick to a close range weapon like an SMG or Shotgun and also a long/medium range Assault Rifle, preferrably with a Grenade Launcher attachment.

Hope these tips help you guys, and Good Luck.
