Here are my own tips and things that I've learnt through completing all of the other Call of Duty Games on Veteran Difficulty

-Stuns and flash-bangs are a man's best friend, always use them.
-Light Machine Guns (LMGs) are the best weapons to pick up as they shred through enemies and there always comes that annoying moment when you have to reload.
-Grenades usually get me killed more than the enemies shooting at me. Frags have an absolutely huge radius in which they explode. Stay clear of them and always throw them back as they are not cooked in single player.
-Always be cautious going around corners. Staying prone or crouched is a good idea.
-Let your team mates go first, so you can see where they are shooting etc and also they have infinite health.
-If you don't keep pushing forward you won't reach checkpoints as the enemies infinately respawn.
-Don't rush in on Veteren, you'll get nowhere.
-You can automatically lock on to enemies by pressing the aim/fire button. This is a very handy feature so use it.
-Most Important thing for me is if you are really struggling with a mission or can't get passed a certain point and you've been trying so many times turn your xbox off leave it for a couple of hours or a day then come back to it. Trying to get past a hard point on Veteran while frustrated and angry isn't going to happen. Done it so many times where I have decided to leave it and come back to it and I've done it 1st time.

I am aware that I haven't completed this campaign on Veteran yet, but I thought I'd give some pointers anyway :)

Hope this helps.
BrumtownManglerA better solution than the idiot gloating. In all honesty the campaign on this game is not very hard at all and should present no trouble to seasoned players. For the sake of comparison it took me just over 9 hours to complete on Veteren, that is including getting the Intel items and also doing the level specific achievements. You can hang back for most of the game and let whichever squad memebers you have with you deal with the enemy. I was kinda dissapointed at how easy it was :(

BrumtownManglerJust as a side note: Does anybody elses completion percentage read 100.3% for campaign? I'm guessing the 0.3% is getting the intel?

@BrumtownMangler I had that aswell before doing the final level on veteran so I assumed it would change to 101% as a joke but it still says 100.3% lol

xZ JoeyYep mine says 100.3% :S not sure why

Gogore WoDHere's a question, can you replay a mission before you complete your playthrough without it messing up the cheevo? I recall black ops having that problem.
