So after reading all the guides and the sticky on here I thought I should be able to jump in and do fine in Mercenaries either Solo or Duo. Boy was I wrong! I don't know what it is, but RE5 Mercenaries felt much easier. I was able to rack up points and get A - S Rankings easily. Now in RE6 i'm just failing miserably. Does anyone want to help me out?

Really I was horrible at RE5 mercs and decent at RE4 mercs. I just did the bare minimum to unlock the handcannon RE4, it was a challenging yet fun experience. But RE5 mercs felt really boring and felt more like a chore than anything to me.
RE6 mercs i started off slow but after 10 or so games i got my first 150 combo/million point game in duos. Once you find which map you like (mining the depths in my case) you will pull S ranks alot of the time just la-de-da screwing around.
In my opinion RE6 is super easy because of the map design, except that bridge map with the j'avo. That map would be better if it was just the top level or the bottom level alone, it's just horrible unless you have 1 person per level but your almost screwed if your partner goes down.

The biggest thing you can do to help your RE6 Mercs is learn to counter the different enemies. Except for J'avos where it mostly won't kill them. But I don't find the J'avo maps fun really so I don't play them
A huge thing about it is just practice. The first couple times I did it I scored like 25k points and thought it seemed impossible. After playing more and more and realizing the most important thing is to just keep the combo active as long as possible I started getting S every time.
It can be tough. Especially once the game ramps up and you start encountering stronger enemies and more of them. Always keep moving and melee when you can to preserve time. Use counters when possible.
One map that would be really good for you to get your feet wet on would be Catacombs, if you have that. The enemies are fairly docile for the most part and difficulty doesn't really ramp up until about 130 kills.
Shoot me a message if you wanna play some. I'll jump in with you.
